  1. Friends, Haters, & Funny

    I finally saw “In the Heights” this past Saturday night at a friend’s house.  Originally, four of us were supposed to get together.  One woman went to her car and discovered it had been towed.  She canceled.  So it was my buddy Judy and I going to Steve’s house in New Jersey.  He cooked lots of delicious food, we brought wine, and Judy also brought pastries from a bakery.  I stayed with food and wine, while they also had mixed drinks.  Judy is not the drinker she used to be, so she slept through most of the movie.  Steven and I watched the movie.  I did have a small non-speaking part in it.  Several people had written to me when it first came out, “Did I just see you in ‘In the Heights’?”  I was background but was placed next to one of the main actors, so I was clearly seen in the rally scene.


    It is a good story, but way too much singing for my taste.  I liked the cast and many things, but it could have been shorter.  My “LA Law” heart throb, Jimmy Smits, was in it.  

    This was him back then ...

    Though he had no idea of my relationship with him, I was glad to see him again.  😊  

    I have a feeling the show might have been better as the play it originally was.  I do think it was important, and I am glad I saw it.  And though my role was only background, I am glad I was in it.


    On a totally other subject:  I want to give credit to this man, Katt Williams, who helped me survive at times on a former job.  It’s less than a minute.  Use headphones if you are at a job or near children.  Enjoy.



    For more funny, mark your calendars for my fall comedy show at The Artist on City Island on 10/22.  (Must bring vax card.)  I am proud to announce that the funny will be brought to you by Pudge Fernandez, Jean Kim, Linda San Lucas, and me.



    Heartfelt love to CGG-M ❤❤❤

      Wow, who knew! You go woman!!! Glad you were able to get out and share such a nice experience with friends.
      Saw the play and the movie. Yes, the play was better because you "feel" the energy!
      Checked out the link for a few seconds. Don't like to hear ALL that profanity and the N word. For me it doesn't get it.

    2. I get it. His language is alarming (and off-putting to some), but I like his message. It helped me accept certain things. At a job, I was loved by most students and resented by some staff. I thought I was helpful and contributory, so I didn't understand. After hearing Katt's take on haters, I realized it had less to do with me and more to do with them. So, in spite of his language, he helped me.

    3. Melinda said...'re truly special. While others may walk away, or turn off the video or channel, you stay and YOU get the gift of the message. As I get older, I choose not to listen to if it hurts/ or bothers my soul. Of course, there are times when other choose the same in a different situation ( listening to what a homeless person needs to share) and I stay. Love you dearly ��
