Ain't it Lovely?

Spring is officially upon us, folks. And what, I hear you asking, are my plans for the first week of spring? Never you fear, I'll tell you. I have finals. And work. AWESOME. True, I only have one final left (Statistics at 7:30 in the morning, boo hiss), and I work at an awesome place with awesome people (in an office that has awesome heat retention) so, really, I have little to complain about. And on Friday I'm leaving for spring break, which will be all fun, but also means I'm working an extra day this week, in addition to the extra day I worked last week, to make up for it. So worth it.

You know what else is worth it? A kickin' segue?! No!... well yes, but also! The price of admission to see "Frank Langella's Cyrano"! Now, I don't usually go to the gala performances here (for shame!), but oh man I'm glad I went to this one. To be fair, I'm biased, because this is one of my favorite stories EVER IN THE WORLD. Romantic, sad, exciting, all that jazz. I saw a production of "Cyrano" at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland about 3 or so years ago, and it changed my life, but I gotta say, I liked ours better. If nothing else then for the portrayal of the title character, who here is seen not only as a romantic swashbuckler, but as a human being with emotions and faults and layers. Beautifully done. Closes April 18th, this Sunday the 28th is talk-back. Fun times!

On the less exciting side, the office here needs, well, maintenance. Less clutter and a vacuum cleaner are called for. I can't keep my own room clean, let's see if I can help keep a desk clean.

On the bright side, there's a spiffy new logo painted on the wall in the lobby, looks pretty great!

Thanks to everyone who made this a great opening weekend, and tell your friends! If you haven't seen it yet, then what the heck are you waiting for?!

Oh yeah, one more thing. Our non-profit partner for this show is KidPower. To give you an idea of what they're all about, here's their mission statement: "To teach people of all ages and abilities how to use their own power to stay safe, act wisely, and believe in themselves." All these are themes in the show, especially that last one, so, ya know, it fits. Anyway, mention "KidPower" when you're ordering your tickets over the phone, or type it in as a promotion code if you're ordering online, and $5 from each ticket go straight to them. Pretty nifty, huh? Thanks again for the support!
