What are you doing this weekend?

I wanted to let you all know that the new Signature Theatre Building in Shirlington will be having an Open House this weekend.

There will be all sorts of things for kids (Mask-making, face-painting, etc.) and lots of free performances (a few are ticketed- namely Into The Woods on Sunday, The Euan Morton and the Emily Skinner concerts) but all else is free to the public. I’ll also be there all weekend and if I look a little frazzled, come say "hello" and try to calm me down...

Here's what the Theatre has to say about it:


Open House Weekend January 13 & 14, 2007

Enjoy performances, family activities, master classes, and theater tours all weekend long. All events are free and open to the community. Tickets are not required unless otherwise noted. Free ticket distribution for select events begins the day of the event at 11:30am from Signature's new box office.

Visit for more information and a complete schedule of events.

David Hasselhoff?

I haven't watched the new Doctor Who, but based on this clip from new spin-off Torchwood, I need to start...

This is touching, sexy, beautiful, romantic, sad brokeback action. Excellent.

First Of Year

So, here I am, the first night of 2007. Totally relaxed from a bath in my Jacuzzi tub and watching an episode of “Wonderfalls” (one of my favorite, yet canceled early series on DVD). My dear friend Flounder is dozing on the couch and her husband is watching “Babylon 5” on his laptop.

Here in the OBX we do things a little differently- more mellow and stuff. The other 16 folks are either asleep or downstairs in the home theatre or in the hot tub outside. So far, it’s been a fairly lazy week. Each night, someone makes dinner and we either imbibe some alcoholic drinks and just carry on or we watch some tv before hitting the sack. It’s funny how habits change as we get older. 9 Years ago, we all would’ve been all sorts of drunk and staying up late, now it’s a struggle to stay awake after 1 AM. I’m not complaining, mind you, I’m in a reflective state at the moment. Is this holiday one of the moments where reflection is part of the deal or just where I am psychologically?

No clue, just color me content.
