Somehow I have passed into semi-seniordom without even realizing it. I went from Saturday night being my favorite time for theater and parties to Sunday afternoon. I'm not sure how this happened. It was gentle and subtle, but it's real and I don't think I'll be going back to Saturday night any time soon.
This afternoon, thanks to my wonderful discount theater membership -- Theatermania Gold Club -- for those of you living in New York -- I saw "10x25," part of a series of short-short plays at the Atlantic Theater Company. There were eight plays this afternoon. I really liked half of them, liked three and disliked one. All in all, a good afternoon's entertainment. One of the plays I really liked was a monologue by Kristen Johnston, who you may remember from "Third Rock from the Sun." Her role as a very quirky actress conducting a Master Class was very funny.
The show ended at a very civilized 4:30 PM and if I'd been in the mood, it would have been almost just the time to take advantage of pre-theater fixed price dinners, the New York equivalent of the early bird special. I guess I'm now the early-bird matinee girl. I'm sure I have lots of company!
Thanks for all the great thoughts on favorite childhood reading. You named so many of my favorite books and I am so glad to find a few Cherry Ames fans in the group.
P.S. Still a few days to enter the Purple giveaway.
