The only thing I can really say about this morning, is that it was too dark to get out of bed, and still is. So. *cries*
This morning I would like to take a moment to pay tribute to the things that I alone list as interests. Oh the tragedy of those lonely little unlinked words. Anyway, the following are things that nobody is interested in but me:
Greenwillow – This is one of my very favorite books on the earth, introduced to me by my mother, who also introduced me to the semi-obscure Frank Loesser musical that was based on it. It is perhaps the most delightful thing I have ever read. Out of print, last I knew, my original copy was one that was walked out the back door of the Saginaw Library for me (when I was in high school) by a close friend’s librarian mom. I was the only person who had checked it out in years, so I guess she figured nobody would miss it. The copy I have now was found for me at a used book sale by my dear friend, Fiona Swift. She purchased it in order to save me from a life of crime. And hey! I just found out that this was reissued in paperback!!
B.J. Chute – Author of the aforementioned book.
Kenneth MacMillan – Sir Kenneth MacMillan to be precise, my favorite choreographer. I am one of those lame ballet geeks who was never a dancer (aside from what I needed to do as an actor/singer), and there is something about his choreography that captures me like nothing else. When I lived in NYC I used to spend way too much of my spare (ha ha) cash getting orchestra seats for ABT performances of Romeo and Juliet and Manon. My sister actually got to perform some of his choreography when she was touring with Nick Hytner’s revival of Carousel, something of which I will always be insanely jealous.
So… that’s it. I have nothing else to say.
