I read, write, code, and knit.

Black Light

So I joined this informal sort drama group known as "Black Light Theatre," which does their performances in, not surprisingly, under black light. Several of my friends were already in it, so I decided I might as well join and have some fun.

I got drafted to play a "voice" (as opposed to a puppet) because the person who previously played the voice had moved away. So now I'm going to be an "angry dad" (the play, I gather, is about family issues). The atmosphere is quite informal, as obviously I'm diving right in. Meanwhile, we're working on a new play, this one about mental illnesses in adolescents at high school. That'll be interesting. . . .

Thanksgiving long weekend! Pie, pie, pie! Turkey! Cranberry sauce! Stuffing!
