Renee Fleming – Top Ten Opera Lyrics, on Late Night With David Letterman.
What’s on your mind?
hey wmd — how ya doing tonight?
Ever hear this?
Frustrated with hurry up and wait.
i had not wmd…. how much longer do ya think before ya find out?
Best of luck, wmd, and congrats on the zed…! ;-)
Aloha, Suz, and lln pups…!
Hi Suz, llners. We’ve all had some weather now. First moisture in NM for 43 days or something. A few inches of snow here and there.
aloha tut — how ya doing tonight?
I called HR today. He still hasn’t talked with manager, said he’d left voicemails, said a couple of senior folks that interviewed me recommended I be hired for the manager’s req and had no response.
I asked what I could do to make his life easier, but also told him I’m actively interviewing… I liked the work and the team and hope they figure things out before I’m off the market.
Figured out manager’s name (HR gave me first name, LinkedIn found him very fast). I asked my internal contact to please ask the manager to contact HR. I think maybe the manager doesn’t use voicemail… and HR isn’t catching him in his cube.
hey bg — how ya doing tonight? 10 inches of snow officially here… so far — its started falling again but i think its just a snow shower that will soon pass
CT, that vid you posted of the weather in the Atlantic was intense. I’ve not been on the TV, any news how it is going down?
fingers and toes it all clicks together and ya get get the forking job offer dood
So the 10 inches I saw predicted seems to be accurate.
More juke box fodder.
thanks for the kind wishes everyone.
I truly feel for the Brits…! Atlantic ‘storm factory’ to bring Britain more chaotic weather woes
Btw, that freezing rain to ‘cap off’ your storm(s), will be a nightmare…! I hope you’re well provisioned…! *g*
so far…. more arriving tomorrow afternoon (hopefully after jen flies out to her carribean vacation) and then more sat. turns to freezing rain sometime sunday and then regular rain into next week as it warms up. was 17 all day but its warmed up to 19 now
Here’s one that is often appropriate.
that’s horrid — so many towns and villages have to be evacuated with the floods and now they are gonna get more floods and 80 mph winds!
stocked up yesterday thank goodness…
*heh* Ask and Ye shall receive, bg…! ;-)
tired of waiting
portland officially got 3.5 inches per the weather dood’s teaser
Changing it up.
I don’t normally get sick, but I’ve been in bed w/the flu it seems, 2 days could barely feed the cats, today I was able to go out to get juice and etc. Now evolved to cold, hope it is winding down now.
the #6 lyric cracked me up … as did most of them i must admit
i’ve not heard that in years! wow, thanks wmd!!! most folks don’t recall that blondie’s version was a cover
Poor Token, I really feel for the little fellah…! ;-)
We’ve had about 2 inches of rain this week. Lexington and Stevens creek reservoirs are really low, be interesting to watch them as water moves off mountains.
oh no! *hands on monitor* hope ya feel better soon bg
Ooh, best healing vibes, bg…!
Did you get a flu shot? I’m always curious to see if the vaccine works or not.
my neighbor knocked down somewhat of a path in the snow for him but he’s still refusing to leave the porch after he discovered the snow is deeper than he is tall — did not like that faceplant into the snow at the bottom of the steps earlier…
i hope you get more — i saw a pic of lexington and didn’t recognize it….
hey dearie — how ya doing tonight? i had a flu shot and am glad i did so the bug i had last month wasn’t as bad as it could have been…
We’re getting a bit of rain, finally, on the south central coast. I like that it is a slow drip; won’t be many inches, but will soak in a bit.
Not James Bond…
No, I so rarely get sick, but I don’t think they work.
*heh* That must’ve been a Kodak moment…! ;-)
Hey, Suz. I’ve been working a lot! Good and also weary.
When it first rains in California, I’m sure you remember!, people drive like idiots and get into all kinds of accidents. I was lucky to get home safely. Heard about a three car pile up on my road south just after I got past that point. I’m happy to be happily at home tomorrow~
song to the moon
But this is…
yay!!! every drop helps
Although now while coughing a storm and sneezing/leaking, I think I am about as miserable as I have been in the last 3 days. I don’t have a fever and no major congestion.
I guess I will start with massive amounts of vitamin C now.
not a happy camper at all — he think’s i’m responsible for that cold white stuff and keeps glaring at the door then at me…
Hope you feel much better very soon! I had two weeks of flu and pain and yuk once in the 1980s. I’ve never missed a flu shot since…. and never had the flu since. Two weeks of misery made me willing to risk that the vaccine might maybe work, and I’ve been good to go.
with the hardly any rain ya’ve had, there is even more oils on the roadways to get slick with those drops…
17 wasn’t too bad, nor was 9 in truck today… lower 9 tonight wasn’t great, but I think my bike’s back tire was low.
ooooo i like that made me think of this
(((bg))) hot tea with honey and lemon (and a shot of whiskey)
Skatalites are usually pretty good.
I’ve been trying to get Neil Young to cover Peter Gunn on the pump organ. Somehow I think he’d pull it off.
Well, this is the 3rd time I have been sick since 2003. So I can’t complain. I had encephalitis in 2003, which was serious, and in 2009 I had giardia. So I don’t really think about needing interventions.
better get it checked — 9′s not a road to have a blow-out on…
i hope it stays what it is and goes away quickly and doesn’t progress into anything worse bg
Yep, roads are ready for smashups. I was talking to an LA attorney who was up working in our area; he said, “What’s with your drivers up here…. they enter the freeway at 45 MPH and don’t have any urge to get up to speed.” And it’s true! Anyone going 60 or less on the freeway ought to be ticketed!! Yes. They really should.
It seems like a regular cold now. I will be alert though. I know the H1N1 has been very nasty and people have died.
You’re doing great, gal. I’m just always trying to find out if it’s worth it to have a flu shot. So far, it seems to me to be worth it, but I’m still studying it.
We had a police officer, 50, who was loved in his community, who went to bed on Saturday night not feeling well and did not wake up. I don’t know if they figured out what happened to him. Very sad.
I’ll check it tomorrow, and put air in if needed.
mine was bronchitis and was a bitch to get rid of. horrid stuff… i hope yours stays a cold
so sudden — how sad for his family and the community
This one has a Johnny Rivers cover in it towards the end.
i kept thinking of that song instead of the peter gunn i linked to earlier.. had a dickens of a time pulling art of noise outta my brain
The jeff beck, tal wilkenfeld cover of peter gunn is a really fine one.
as is the blues brothers cover i love their horns
i’m a huge tal fan — she rocks – hard
I’ve seen a lot empirical data that proves they’re worthless, the major conclusion being that they’re vaccinating for the last version, and in many instances with the Flu having evolved thru 2 or more progressions…!
Well I’m ready to sleep. good night all.
g’nite wmd — happy dreams
Pleasant dreams, wmd…!
Opera–oy! That topic comes up frequently on Jeopardy, and I’ve whiffed the entire category playing at home.
hey tt — how ya doing tonight?
Oops, one more cover of Johnny Rivers.
Having a nightcap and getting ready for Avenue Q Avenue Z. It’s roaring cold tonight.
its warmed up to 19 from the 17 it was all afternoon. the snow doesn’t seem to bother the birds at my feeder – i moved it last week to a spot i can see from the laptop – all kinda little ones flying about today
I was a HUGE fan of DEVO.
“We’ve got freedom of choice!”
Putin’s FB movie.
i can’t get no
hey ks — how ya doing tonight?
Until about ten years ago, the local robins (the state bird of Michigan) migrated in November and came back in March. More recently, the robins have wintered over around here. I was astounded to see a flock of them in a berry tree. Evidently they’ve figured out how to survive Michigan winters, even winters as snowy as this one.
i don’t see how they stay warm — those poor bare little feet
I’m good. Was in late 2nite, so catch up on pm chatterboxes chrishayes, maddow. Soon I’ll get on the twitter. I have to write up a brief on defense witnesses in a inquisition trial (1494) and more details abt the 1499 Venetian Garzoni bank failure.
It’s still cold here, but pretty in that cold winter, snow-covered way.
Hope you’re well,,,
tis about time for me to try to coax poor little short token outside to do his business… fingers and toes crossed he needs to go so bad that he gives the snow path a try…
g’nite all and happy colorful dreams (as dearie says)
Hi was a cozy drizzly day in Los Osos by the bay. Had our big Community Services District meeting tonight. Looks like they may embrace buying out Golen State Water rip off company that charges double their rate. Happy Happy
sounds great if it could lead to greater control/autonomy for consumers!
Wow, that sounds promising! What are your thoughts on it?
*heh* That’s a cool parody of Putie…! ;-)
I just popped a batch of walnut brownies in the oven…!
Sweet dreams, Suz…!
$10.5 Million versus $28.5 Million over 40 years, Now they pay twice as much $200.00 versus $98.00 bimonthly. For $16.00 a month for bond payment they save immediately $67.00 bimonthly and avoid the increases of $18 million. So any takers?
Yep they get to vote their deciders in or out. LOCAL CONTROL now we have investors ala wall street to please. Yuk
The Directors are interested and itmay get on the committee agendas for a look. We lost our trash franchise fee during the bankruptcy so the District is short $180K. With one admin expense and that cost spread we will be balancing budget and not charging our fire department so much.
