Playing Catch Up

Where did the month go? Good lord, it's almost June.

Hey, let's catch up a little bit, shall we?

Sorry it's been light reading around here lately. In addition to the incessantly plugged shows going up, we also had a death in the family (my Grandmother, which is why I was gone for most of last week). After that, Memorial Day rolled around and then I've been mopping up around work ever since.

And now here I am, at the end of the month, tired and with a lingering chest thing that I'm trying to Nyquil to death.

So let's see. What's new?

Run, palindrome ,nuR is now closed after what I imagine was a sucessful five week run at Donny's Skybox. I say "I imagine" because I was only really around for the first three weeks. So, unless the theatre was beset by plague for the last two shows and nobody came to the show, I imagine we did all right. Having had the chance to finally watch the whole thing in it's third week, I was very pleased with the way it came out and with the way the actors performed. All 18 of them.

So now that the show is over, I imagine we at RvD will do some post show evaluating and then it's BACK TO WRITING!!

Which will be great. I love the writing process. And I haven't really done any - apart from the usual picking away at a play I may or may not ever finish - ever since we finished writing Palindrome. So I'm looking forward to getting back to that.

In the meantime, the Shakespeare show I'm in just finished up it's second week of performances. I'm quickly rekindling a long lost love: that of Euchre, which a group of us play before every show. It's bordering on pre-show ritual, except I don't think any of us are under the illusion that playing Euchre helps our performances.

Let's see. What else.

Oh, hey! If you're looking for a nerd treat, go check out Star Trek. You've heard it's great from everyone who's seen it, and it is. I don't even like Star Trek and I thought it was great.

Beam me up, blog!

Wow, GW is really bringing it with the punctuation humor. He should have a blog or something. That would be great . . .
