Well, who knows? It might catch on.
Anyhow, June has come to a grinding halt and July has come in like a Lion and I'm mixing my metaphors as quickly as I am able with these two left feet.
I'm back at my desk job and "The Most Wonderful Love" has closed and I am staring at "The Shadow" and thinking on the relative merits of ways to write "The Lower River" and I'm moving in with this young woman August 1st. All of these things create a sense of happy unease.
I saw "Faith Healer" last night which is marvellously performed problem-play. Ian McDiarmid steals the show rather handily, as I hoped he would. He did not use Force Lightning, but I forgive him.
Oh, and my back and legs are soaked from the rain. My khakis are sticking to my calves. My brown shoes are getting closer to falling into complete disrepair. I'm drinking a cup of coffee from the office next to ours... the grounds come from something called "Bishop's Blend." I'm sure it's got the Holy Spirit in it.
I feel a bit "off."
I watched Superman Returns this weekend, which has its merits, but just has weird pacing for me near the end. It just slows waaaaay down. It was, though, an homage to the first Superman movie more than anything else, and that made the big fat geek in me sing sings of exhultation. Until I ran out of popcorn.
That's my thoughts to start this fine day. How are
