I should have qualified my vocal statement by explaining further. Due to my situation this last year, I've not been singing very much. I've had two (or possibly one long drawn-out) big illnesses that attacked my vocal chords, weakening them and leaving stinging and lumps in my throat that still haven't quite left. Recording has become difficult. It is vastly different to record than to sing live. But I am fighting my way back. It's like Jerome said a while back, the more I sing the more grounded and healed I'll become. I believe that.

So, Caroline, or Change was fantastic. It was devistating, and beautiful, and almost overwhelming. It restored my faith in musical theatre. If there's any way at all, go see it while it is in LA or San Francisco (I think starting January). I don't want to give much away but I left with a renewed sense of hope of my place in the future as my mother's daughter. I choose Change.

On the job front, yesterday I had to sit here while everyone left to go a holiday party on my boss's yacht (which I helped arrange). Why didn't I go, you ask? I WASN'T INVITED. Not that I would have missed the play. But still, it was really humiliating. Oh, whatever. Job is ending in a few weeks. I move on. I will miss Sara, my sweet co-worker, who is kind and caring. She's been ridiculously patient with me when I've been so distracted and sloppy.

So, check it out, Mike was on NPR this morning. Listen to him be all openly anti-war. He's my hero.

David and I have been totally distracted by this, which, if you complete and send to friends, starts to be really addictive when you get to watch their entire brush stroke process. Play around with it, it's really fun. Paste the links to your art in comments...IF YOU DARE. Here's the first one I did.

So, this is my interpretation of Adriana's work environment. I call it Breakdown:

Of course we can't. Girls are much more fun than boys. Boy kitties, on the other hand, are supreme fun. I love your flying lady.
