Going Private

There are a lot of issues going on in my life right now that I would like to write about but feel the public forum, where just anyone may run across it, is inappropriate.

I will be going private later today. I know many of you who comment, and I know many of you do not comment. If I miss anyone please e-mail me or leave a comment here.

On a brighter note, I have been sick for two whole days! Two days of blissful, feverish bed rest. I read read read. I finished the most interesting book I have run across in sometime called The Natural History of Uncas Metcalfe. I wanted to yell out to Joe, "Listen to this!" but knew he would not understand why I thought the quickly improvised moniker of "Baron Carl the Bad" was hilarious! The book was just the perfect touch of tenderness and intrigue. I truly love it when I would like to meet a character, and I certainly would like to meet Uncas Metcalfe, sort of a 1980's Larry David  who never says anything out loud but has the most entertaining dialog going on in his head, meets Grandpa.

Once won an Oscar last night! The song, "Falling Slowly" (which even Joe agreed was the best song of the five nominees) was named best original song (I think). I just loved how Jon Stewart allowed Marketa Irglova back on stage to give her thanks after being cut off by the infuriating "wind it up fast" music.  Colin Farrel introduced them and that was very cool too. What a bad boy doll...

Catch it here....you will love it!

M ... please add me to your private list ...

You know, I'm going to have to try that book now.  On your recommendation I view 'Once' and bought the CD!  Loved every minute of it.  So well, that I bought the movied on DVD too.

Hope you are feeling better -- but too bad you can't sneak out another day of bed rest and reading.  ;)

I have to admit I had to look up the lyrics to "Falling Slowly", I wish I could hear the music that entains those beautiful lines. Thanks for the head up, I'll be looking for more songs by them. May I please be added to your private journal hon. I just recently started reading you, but enjoy getting to know you. Thanks hon! (Hugs) Indigo

Mary, YOU were the first person to read my journal years ago.  I still read yours. Glad you are back after an absense.  If you are so inclined, I would like to be included in your private read.   Anne (Saturday's Child)

Would you believe we missed the Oscars last night?  Some "industry folk" we are.  Don't let word get out.  We could be shunned by our peers.  Thankfully, we have youtube and the Daily Variety to keep us current.

If you're taking names for your private journal, please keep me in mind. :)
