Still alive (despite the weather)

Okay, who stole spring? I object. Strenuously.

Acting class continues to be Of The Awesome. Pre-class chitchat revealed an unusually high geek quotient in the room, which I always appreciate. There are never as many fannish types in theatre as you (or at least I) think there should be. Also, I appear to have been permanently dubbed "Red" by our coach, which is fine but amusing. Last week I was Red for the first hour and Victoria a couple of times, then he settled into Valerie for the rest of the evening, so I know he does in fact know my name.

Scenework is proving to be a great push for figurative muscles I haven't been working nearly enough lately. Once my scene partner got hold of the out-of-print play we were assigned a scene from, that is. Some things really aren't just getting in your own way! %-} It's A Cry of Players, which, now that I've read it, I'm kind of amazed I'd never heard of. There are thoughts formulating in my head that I want to blog about in addition to the stuff going directly into the scenework itself, but I'm not sure yet what form that'll take. Except a glancing amusement that I would be given Anne Hathaway Shakespeare as my first assignment, after my recent babble touching on the playing-a-historical-person thing. Scene partner is awesome and open to pushing himself and risking. Not to mention willing to alternate coming out to the burbs on Metra with me going into the city to get together and work.

In the area where Actor Val intersects with Fannish Val, beginnings of an interesting discussion this morning on melancholydanes. (Spoilers galore for all three seasons of Slings and Arrows.) I really need to rewatch that whole series. Y'know, in my copious free time...

I didn't see Slings & Arrows the first time around. Your post reminded me to put it in my Netflix queue.

Oh, yes, it is not to be missed! By anyone who loves Shakespeare, or has been around theatre, or has watched pretty much any Canadian TV ever, or any combination of the above.

So. Much. Love.

I'll take it. Heck, I'll take it with our humidity instead of yours.

As long as you're aware of what you're trading for. It was SNOWING for a while yesterday. We're not expecting a high over 60 until next week.

Did I mention the SNOW? And the 40 DEGREES in the middle of the frickin day? And the fact that it was 58 degrees INSIDE MY HOUSE when I got up the other morning?

We've had the heat on all week. To achieve 64 degrees. At the end of April. Wrongwrongwrongwrong.

WTF indeed. Somebody's up there laughing at us.

&*%$# Snow!
It's been cold and rainy here in Maine, though the sun did make an appearance today. I'm keeping my fingers crossed the snow is done here.

Oh, yes, it is not to be missed! By anyone who loves Shakespeare, or has been around theatre, or has watched pretty much any Canadian TV ever, or any combination of the above.
Sounds like something I should try. Thanks for the recommendation. I've been trying to catch up on a bunch of series I missed. I've only just started Stargate SG-1 (I was cableTV-less for a looong time).
