James Comtois tagged me with this sort of Meme thing. I feel as if it's reflective among the bloggers that we're all back from the Holidays and writing a bunch of whatever, whatever, whatever.
Anyway, I shall not be rude. Five things you probably don't know about Matthew Freeman, playwright:
1. I've been engaged twice. I am not currently engaged.
2. I've seen every single one of the Star Wars prequels more times than most people have seen any given Episode of Friends. I'm obsessed with them. I am unstoppable at Star Wars Trivial Pursuit. I recently won a game of it by answering correctly the name of the Protocol Droid at the very beginning of The Phantom Menace. (It's TC-14.)
I stood on line for more than 5 hours to see a midnight showing of Revenge of the Sith. There, I said it. We'll all be ok about it, won't we?
3. I also have a shameful love for professional wrestling. I attended ECW shows under I-95 in Philadelphia. I attended Wrestlemania 10 and 19 and 20 all live. My favorite professional wrestler since retired is Bret Hart, who is, I would say, as close to a tragic figure as I could think of in the oddball world of fake sports.
4. I have this obnoxious habit of quoting my own plays and laughing to myself. Everyone I know thinks it's an awful thing to do. They're right. But I do it anyhow.
5. When I sleep, I like the sheets as flat as possible. I don't like them all twisted and wrapped around me and knotted. Flat. Flat sheets. That's what I like.
I tag you, Web 2.0. Yes...you.
