Another Reason Why I Question My Life Choices

I heart theatre. I always have. I have a tattoo to prove it. I've been involved in theatre in one way or another since I was in my first school play at six years old. Even when I worked in corporate America, I used the time and the money to try and produce a play.

But then something like this comes along, and it makes me wonder why I love such a stupid a**hole. Because this sounds like one of the stupidest things I've ever heard of. For the life of me, I can't understand it. Please someone explain it to me...perhaps the same person who explains white people in shorts during cold weather.

what's really weird is as you were typing that comment on my blog, I was reading yours....spookey.

There is no good explanation of that schlock.

I'm stil trying to figure out the shorts thing. All I know is that Kristie wears flip flops in the winter. Hmm.

I have to admit something. I've never been into Lord of the Rings. Whew. There I said it. It feels so good to come clean. So this show sounds particularly lame to me.

Well, I understand the why...it's money. The whole "play from the film" thing, you know. And there are some seriously devoted Tolkien freaks out there, too. (It's funny that you posted this now - just a couple of hours ago, I read TIME's review of the play - which was, surprising, good.)

Now, just because I defended this doesn't mean that I'm going to go see it...

K. Lance is absolutely right about the money angle.

As far as white and shorts in cold weather...this white woman doesn't get it either. Granted, I'm in San Francisco, but it has been raining and cold for us. Yet, practically every morning I see some white guy or gal on the train with shorts and flip flops. I'm bundled up with overcoat, scarf and gloves and this nut job is looking to catch some rays.

It's like some weird bi-coastal Bermuda short cult or something.

HAHA- I did not even read the article- i just clicked the link, saw the title come up and quickly with a slightly audible scream returned to your blog. But hey I am embarressed by all of these theatrical adaptations and hyrids: Footloose the play, Flashdance the play, moving out, mamma mia etc....I thought that we were leaving the culteral void but now I feel- ehhhhhh might have fallen back down the hole.
