The Tempest

Yay for outdoor shakespeare...

The California Shakespeare Festival (www.calshakes.org) is producing The Tempest this fall and the date of choice for attending appears to be Friday, 10/7... (Tuesdays and Wednesdays are bad for ballroom types, Thursday conflicts with sewing/swing classes/other ballroom types, and Sat and Sun do not have $10 cheap tickets. :-P)

Any takers?

If the Pillsbury Doughboy were to die, this would be his obituary...


It is with the saddest heart that I must pass on the following news. Please join me in remembering a great icon of the entertainment community.

The Pillsbury Doughboy died yesterday of a yeast infection and trauma complications from repeated pokes in the belly. He was 71. Doughboy was buried in a lightly greased coffin. Dozens of celebrities turned out to pay their respects, including Mrs. Butterworth, Hungry Jack, the California Raisins, Betty Crocker, the Hostess Twinkies, and Captain Crunch. The gravesite was piled high with flours. Aunt Jemima delivered the eulogy and lovingly described Doughboy as a man who never knew how much he was kneaded.

Doughboy rose quickly in show business, but his later life was filled with turnovers. He was not considered a very smart cookie, wasting much of his dough on half-baked schemes. Despite being a little flaky at times he was still a crusty old man and was considered a roll model for millions.

Doughboy is survived by his wife, Play Dough, two children, John Dough and Jane Dough, plus they had one in the oven. He is also survived by his elderly dad, Pop Tart.

The funeral was held at 3:50 for about 20 minutes.


Which is lovely, really, and was a welcome addition to my inbox this morning. :-)
