Love Frampton! He was one of my favorites in the 1970’s! And I would have LOVED to see him pitch a cell phone across the stage!

Review: “The Stage Door”
New Experimental Drama Takes West End by Storm
by Guylty Pleasure
Experimental drama has the habit of being, well, experimental. It is hard to tell nowadays where reality starts and fiction begins. A new experimental drama that is mid-way through its eleven week-run in London’s West End is braving new ways in bringing the reality of modern life to the audience. Never-seen-before stage management, audience involvement and improvisation methods are making this innovative new work the must-see performance of the season. And best of all – it’s unticketed and free in.
Devised and staged by impressive director/writer/lead actor Richard Armitage, the play opens to a street scene on a balmy summer evening in central London. The seemingly calm and peaceful scene is cosily illuminated by street lights, accentuated with the warm glow of the orange “stage door” orb. Sparsely furnished with the occasional car and a…

the critics who gave Into the Storm thumb down reviews
the critic who thought Richard Armitage’s character was supposed to be 65
the idiots who allow the media to decide what is and isn’t worthy of viewing
the critic who referred to the cast as ‘no-names’
and ESPECIALLY to the wanker on FB who cried and moaned – I just KNEW this film was going to be a disaster, what was Richard thinking when he signed up for it – and yet, has not seen the movie…
so in the words that one of my reviewers told another reviewer – stop masturbating for the public!
I liked it and quite frankly m’dear, my opinion is the only one that counts!
Very Tired, Didn’t sleep well at all and stomach was so angry I was scared to take my meds this morning, much less eat. Event went well, but I’ve learned, that means nada. 2 small responsibilities (320 and 350) with separate budgets, (more bang for my buck!) and I’m expected to take ONE of the responsibilities to festival for ratings – which I expected.
Also, double the responsibility of PTA! Joy.
They’ll make a decision ‘soon’.
I had forgotten how beautiful that part of the state is.
And I wore the pants.
I like it when HE wears the pants.
C;mon. you were expecting that.
Event. Tomorrow. 3 hours south, being squired by male parental unit as Spawn has to work and a) Old Faithful has no AC and b) Old Faithful isn’t being very faithful these days. Just old. And crabby. We are now down to the wire and I’m grasping at straws.
In an attempt to shake things up out of the doldrums, it was decided I needed a new ‘event’ outfit and we found several at the lovely little consignment shop down the street. So now I’m in a predicament.
What to wear…
I am old school and dress or business suit is my typical go to. So I have this…
Which is lovely but it is a) snug in the rib cage and looks like something I would wear when I performed, conducted, or accompanied soloists or
Which is STILL dressy and rather comfortable. Please note even though you can’t see it, the pants are accordion pleated and VERY dressy!!!
Both tops are just as low – it’s just the shape. Both outfits are also one size smaller than what I’ve been wearing the last 3 years. I’m VERY ecstatic about that!!! (OF course, I’d have to lose 50 pounds in order for anyone to tell!)
But I’m leaning towards the pants, even tho the old lady in me says the dress….
and just cuz…
now yes, I know that’s kinda high, but it’s been over 250 and really to be honest close to 300 for the last 2 months!
Yeah. Very unhappy. In fact a week and a half ago, it hi 497
Yeah. neither can I. And no…
This wasn’t the cause because I’ve been out of Ritz chips for a few weeks! So I guess the walking and the water and the metformin is doing the trick.
That might help more…
Really! I’m in a pickle!
2 days ago, I got hit by adware – Saverad, which I’m sure most of you know about – that annoying little thing that highlights words in your email, webpages, etc and if you hover over it, it gives you links for things and places you don’t want to go. How it managed to bypass my adblock, I’ll never know. Oh and it changes your home page to something you don’t want. Ads. Seeing how I’ve not downloaded anything in several weeks, I’m rather irritated this has happened. So I go to my control panel and sure enough, they’ve downloaded this thing in the last hour or so and I delete it, which usually fixes the problem when they’ve done this in the past.
It doesn’t go away on my internet.
So I do an internet search, discover that sometimes this is imbedded elsewhere and is difficult to remove, there’s a list of things to do to remove it, so I download malwarebytes and another virus piece of software and run it all.
I finally said – enough! And back dated my computer 2 days.
YAY! No more Saverad! Except, it removed my adblock plus for Mozilla and now I have ads up the whaszoo again. I tried many times to redownload Adblock plus. The page spins and spins. I did a google search, accessed the adb lock page from another venue, it downloads – but won’t finish. I download ANOTHER adblocker – which blocks SOME things, but not the ads in my Yahoo or my FB, to name a few. I come to the conclusion it’s the Avira and it’s not allowing me to tweak it for some odd reason. So I decide to remove the Avira, remove the Mozilla and reload. Did all that. Relog back on last night and IE won’t open. Meaning Zee has no internet. I backdate computer again to before this nasty little thing hit. No banana, although the icon for Mozzila is back, but it won’t open either. Tells me something is missing. Joy. At all. It’s late, I say I’m tired, turn it off, go to bed.
So this morning I log back on – no internet. IE will not load. no internet. thing is, my little Internet bar is full, several programs I run that need the internet to run are running, so I figure – you know, something is simply blocking my accessing the internet because my computer has accessed the internet. Hmmmm…
I then remember I have Sir Guy’s guts – including the IE, Mozilla and CHrome downloads. I plug them in, go to the Mozilla folder and click.
Joila. Back online, with my adblocker intact. And all my bookmarks that I lost in that last escapade…
And somehow I managed to do it without pestering my darling Alaskan computer whiz, which I know he appreciates because I tend to call him whining at the most ungodly hours.. Of course, this just might be a temporary solution. Wonder if I could POSSIBLY copy or overwrite the Mozilla folder to my harddrive so I don’t have to go through this every time…
Oh and just cuz it’s Guy Day…
