A New Project? Someone Kill The Plotbunnies!  
Playwrighting.  Hmm.

We're so close to finishing this year's show,  but the kids have spring fever, so I decided that we're 'done enough'  and proposed to write a short one-act before the end of the year.  Superhero Therapy, it's called.  I like it.  So far, anyway.  We have about a page, I'd guess, but basically it's Batman picking on Superman, Spiderman lurking in a corner, Catwoman having a catnip problem , Wonder Woman being just a pain in the ass, and then there's the pink Power Ranger to round off the cast list.  (I think we'll probably just mock her.)  Will it change the world?  No.  Absolutely not.  But that's not what we set out to do, either.  Whatever the case, it's better than alienating one's students by making them work on something that they're bored with.  

Are you reading the fics at ginnylovesdraco?  Mine hasn't been posted yet.  *waits patiently*

After last week's emo-ness, I felt as if all of the creativity were sucked out of my body through my fingernails...  but now it appears to be back.  That's the good news.  The bad news is,  I haven't got it all together, because I completely forgot to take a meal over to my friend's house who had a baby a couple of weeks ago.  I'm a very, very bad friend.  *is horrified*  How can I make it up to her?  I was thinking a big basket of snacks and maybe a couple of giftcards to restaurants.  Gah, I suck.  Truly.

I have tonight and tomorrow off from The Lonesome West and then we do it Wednesday through Sunday.  *prays for strength*

My, you're quiet these days. Lots to do?

Do you know anyplace I can get superhero icons? You'd be the girl to ask, I guess.

The Superhero plays sounds so cool!! I wish that I could actually see it done sometime :)

I think it's really funny. Chances are it will at least get a workshop at the theatre. So if you happen to be thousands of miles away from home near the Texas panhandle...

Seriously. I'll post them here, at least.

Hee. I would love to see the final result of the Superhero play. Batman rules!

Batman is by far the coolest in the play as well. He's totally sarcastic with Superman. And kind of joins Catwoman in mocking everyone.

The play may not change the world but it sounds nifty!
*makes flailing hand movements* strength, strength, strength.

*grins* forget a gift basket - I bet your pal will forgive you in a heartbeat, if you offer to go grocery shopping for her and do a couple of loads of laundry. It may vary from person to person, but I would love anyone who did that for me!
