Happy Thanksgiving!

Lots to be thankful for this year, some of it surprising, and some of it the usual. Hope you all eat a ton, and find lots of great deals tomorrow!

Three hours on Monday dedicated to the discussion of Harry Potter

Ravenclaw! Some might see you as a bit haughty, but
that's just because they lack the intellectual
capacity to be worthy of your presence. You see
little difference between enlightenment and
entertainment; learning experiences are
tremendously enjoyable for you. And remember,
kids: just because you're brilliant doesn't
mean you're studious!

The air is lighter here

Wow. It's amazing how easily things change.

Brian moved out yesterday, finally. I'm really glad. Sure I'll miss him a little, but only a little, because he was only a little nice to me. He only care about me a little, so I will only miss him, a little.

I feel so light and relaxed. The cloud that I thought was pemanently afixed to my apartment is magically gone.

I saw Sweeney Todd last night, with Shanibeth. Ben wasn't in it, but he came and visited with us before the show and during intermission. I know I've said it before and I'm certain I'll say it again, just being around Ben makes me feel good. Spending time with him reminds me that all things are possible with a little self-belief, which I had been seriously lacking in the past year.

The show was great. It was light and fun and exciting. Words I never in a million years dreamed I'd use to describe Sweeney Todd. I hesitated to go until Ben was in because I didn't want to have to sit through it more then necessary. I was completely wrong about that. I will defiantely go again... and maybe again...
(Best number in the show, as always, "A Little Priest" however, Patti and Michael made it really sexy, and almost erotic! Imagine!)

Shan and I are getting an audition board. A white board calendar to write all auditions on. No more excuses!

The Pond

My ice skates came and I got to break them in on the very crowded Pond at Bryant Park. Brian even went with me... ! It's really nice that Citi has sponsored this beautiful FREE resource for the city of New York. But honestly, did they have to tell the tourists? Wouldn't it make more sense to let the residents use the free place and make the tourists pay for the rink at Rockefeller or Wollman rink in Central Park? Yeah, i know, I'm selfish... I'd also like to be able to skate faster then a snail. Still, it was fun to go. Afterward we walked up 5th avenue and started to think about Christmas Shopping. Hard to believe it's that time already! The decorations are up in Astoria already. With the balmy weather, it's very strange.
