So I know I wasn't really sure how I felt about this whole Internet thingy, with the facebooking and the reconnecting with people who I maybe should just never think about again, and then I read stories about women and their psycho exes stalking them years later--but. I think that it might just be okay. I have such a far-flung network of people that I talk to that without the internets I honestly don't know how I'd keep in touch with everyone. I usually spend two to three hours a day emailing, y'all. And sometimes, all you want to know about a person is what they can cram into a Facebook update. The downside of course, is that I spend two to three hours a day emailing, and then sit at home alone, warm and fuzzy in the knowledge of my web of friends.
But the exciting thing is that I am planning to celebrate my birthday this year, and have been assiduously inviting people from all over the world to come and take part--and it actually appears as though I may have people from all over the world coming to take part! Yay! Friends from high school, UWSP, Goldsmiths, Chicago, all mixing together gloriously, all connected by a common thread: Me. Like Zaphod Beeblebrox, I have discovered I am the center of the universe. Yay. And if you're reading this, you're invited too--so save the date: DECEMBER 21st!!! We will be attending the tale of Sweeney Todd, then retiring to an establishment to partake of adult beverages and possibly pancakes. If you're interested in coming and haven't received an invitation, please email me and I will add you to the list.
MEANWHILE. If you're like me and dying with impatience for sweeeeeney to come out, then why not join me in another musical adventure, this one staring Napoleon? You think I'm kidding? I'm not kidding. I read about "SPUKT" today in the paper--and it instantly moved up to the top o' my list of plays to see. A musical adventure about Napoleon that details his mid-eastern conquests? Good lord, it sounds like something I would write. I will just say right now though that if there isn't a passing reference to Nelson I will be sorely disappointed. Still an all though--promises to be great fun.
