Two profoundly unrelated items

First – CC came home on Wednesday morning, barely a day after her surgery. She is all bandaged and bound up, moving slowly, and feeling some discomfort; but it’s nothing she can’t manage through a combination of personal resolve and heavy medication. She is even threatening to walk down to the supermarket today, though I don’t think she’d be able to carry much back home. Thanks to all who have called, written, and/or cared!

Second, we were watching the movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s last night, which moved me to look up director Blake Edwards on imdb.com. As you may know, he has had a long and illustrious career in Hollywood, directing movies such as The Pink Panther, 10, and Victor/Victoria, to name a few. I came across a quote from Mr. Edwards that I got a real kick out of, and I offer it here:

“Make ’em redecorate your office. That’s primary, to let them know where you stand. Then, when you’re shooting interior sequences, use your own interior decorator and set dresser. That way everything on the set will fit your house when you’re finished.”

It puts me in mind of another quote, told to me long ago by a disc jockey friend. He used this to explain the enormous collection of LPs he’d amassed over the years: “What good is power if you can’t abuse it?”
