You Don't Bring Me Flowers…

You Don't Bring Me Flowers…

If you can finish the rest of that song line, you are in the 50% of my followers who were not born after Beyonce and possibly an incurable Barbra Streisand appreciator…and I like to think we are all maturing like a good Bordeaux, although my wife feels I have a tendency to be vinegary these days. No matter, our manic day launching the I Can’t Think Straight series site was brightened considerably by the arrival of some gorgeous flowers sent to us by Maureen in Alaska, who has also been so generous with time, input and sponsorship for our new venture. Here’s a picture. And thank you Maureen, for a beautiful gift.

    Well, I thought you had wrapped the flowers in ice, and sent a group of singing Alaskan Penguins to deliver them to Shaman and interpret their own version of Happy Birthday (it took them 2 months to make it…..) Remember that group? http://www.youtube.com/watch?N… 😉

    Gorgeous! Are they roses? Can't say as I've ever seen any like them before. Maureen has good taste in buds – and flowers too. 😉  Have a grand week-end!

    Well, you fine women, “There is NOTHING Like A Dame” and you may call me a “Cockeyed Optimist” but I “Have Grown Accustomed to THeir Faces (Leyla and Tala) and KNOW the web series will be sponsored in record time…ICTS is one of “My Favourite Things” and I would “Climb Every Mountain” to see it succeed in a  new venue. So “Tonight” as I have my Saturday night at the movies showing of TWU followed by ICTS, “I Feel Pretty” sure of the support and “All That Jazz” for the new Enlightenment adventure! ” 's Wonderful 'sMarvelous” that we all care about such a great project!  MGM musicals, ANYONE'S musicals, “Oh What a Beautiful Morning” to wake up knowing all that fabulous music is out there! and one can “Rent” it or even “Get It For You Wholesale”.   ok, I will shut up now!!!  How about it, Shamim, a musical, Leonie could be a lead…or write the score…;)

      Oh, I think 'I Can't Think Straight' the musical is a winner. Always have. Think of how many things rhyme with 'gay'!

    Certainly my pleasure, but I must say how weird it is to wake up, check the site and see a reference to me there! If you could see the 14 inches of snow on the ground here and failing daylight you would wonder how I found those flowers in the northland. Another wonderful piece of assistance by Sue the biker-chick. Best wishes and thanks to all. Great picture!

      14 inches of snow! As our heating just broke down, I am now grateful we have 5 degrees!

    Are we suppose to finish it now? It really can't tell whether we are born before or after Beyonce, cos lyrics could be found at internet this day :)) I am sure anyone who loves I Can't Think Straight would love to see this beautiful story reborn as a webseries and keep following the story of Tala and Layla. You really written a very good story and I believe you will keep giving us the best to read! Thank you very much!

    “…you don't sing me love songs.  You hardly talk to me anymore when I come through the door at the end of the day…”  Now, how about the entire scores to “My Fair Lady”, “Camelot”, “Oklahoma”, “The Music Man”?….you get the idea.  Chip says, “Thanks, Maureen for sending incredible flowers to the lovely ladies!”  🙂
