Random strings of thought

For a few weeks I've been considering the very important question of which Gypsy cast recording to get. I've wanted one for a while, but which one? The iconic original, with Ethel Merman? The excellent movie, with Rosalind Russel? Some of the newer ones, Bette Midler or Patti Lupone? Or even the strange (IMHO) selection of Bernadette Peters (who went from playing Annie in Annie Get Your Gun to Mama Rose?!?). I suppose I could go for more than one, of course (it's not like I don't have several versions of Oliver! and Fiddler on the Roof).

I once thought I didn't care for Scotch, but apparently, I don't care for BAD Scotch, as I've discovered that Glenlivet is LOVELY.

I'm rather amused that in fighting for State's Rights, the far-right Tea Partiers are ending up inadvertently supporting Massachusetts' gay marriage law. Hee.

Think Geek has once again released a number of things I make grabby hands at, including a limited edition Star Trek watch. Like I need another watch. (But... but... but...!)

On the plus side, I'm guessing it's either a super placebo, or hormone therapy is working; and the only side effect I seem to have noted is the occasional and very slight dizziness, but nothing so bad it's made me stop doing what I'm doing.

Today at work we received a package of medical records and while the actual patient was Craig Fur(name changed to protect the innocent), the secretary who made out the invoice for the records wrote down Craig Ferguson. Hmmm, what was she thinking about?

The dishwasher is leaking again. Dang it.

There are posts out there today which are both Lost Season One, by LOLCats, and Twilight, also by LOLCats. I have to admit I like the LOST parody better, just 'cause I've seen it. Hee, Hurley cat.

At the end of the month, they're showing (for one night only) the Golden Globe winning documentary, Elvis on Tour, in theatres. I'm going to go. I haven't seen it since it was on television when I was something like 11 or 12, and it's never before been released on DVD (or even on tape, if I'm not mistaken)! (The release is of course to celebrate the release of the film on DVD and Blu-Ray, but still--in theatres!) It was the last movie Elvis ever did, even though he was offered other film roles (notably the Kristofferson role in A Star Is Born, which Colonel Parker wouldn't let him do because he'd have had second billing to Streisand).

Finally got some daytime wyverns:

Adopt one today! * Adopt one today! * Adopt one today! * Adopt one today!

I thought about Angela Lansbury; wasn't sure if it were available. Haven't heard Tyne Daly. (Sadly, not every cast is commemorated by recording!)

I rather liked Midler (saw it on TV when it came out, and my mom of course is wild about it), but Peters was a big ol' WHA? for me when I heard she played it.

I have no thoughts on Gypsy, but yay for feeling better! :-)
