Beauty and The Beast

Thanks again, Adria, for the invitation and complimentary ticket. I was telling Dan about the play and how torturous it must be for the actors to be wet for 2 hours in a cold theater. He said that the dresses are probably made of special fabric that dries quickly and the showers may have been a warming technique. He’s used to the world of film where all of this is much easier with special effects. No matter what, these women suffer for their art. Even the sheer physical stamina required for this performance is amazing.

I’d love to borrow your Czech Miniatures CD. I have not yet visited Prague, but perhaps next summer after the wedding. I am getting restless; I’m checking for overseas jobs. Since school this year is less fulfilling than ever (due to new admin.), this increases my desire to escape. I would like one more stint at an overseas posting, maybe Dubai, but I hear they have an age quota. No doubt everything and everyone has to be shiny and new. I may be shiny, but I’m not new. This weekend, every newspaper and radio station is covering the 20th anniversary of the fall of The Berlin Wall, so I also want to be in Berlin. Jesse said that he’d try to go to the BIG concert at Brandenburg Gate. I also want to be in New York for the World Series. So many places ...

Yes, Murder in the Annex! Much more serious and unsettling than pumpkin stealing. I hear the victim left his front door unlocked most of the time. Would it have made any difference if the door had been locked? I don’t know the details. But I do know that Mr. Toby, my neighbour and the person who found the body, rarely locks his doors either. He truly believes that this is a safe area because it’s The Annex. But it’s smack downtown, I keep telling him. Bikes are stolen on a regular basis and even my neighbour’s underground water hose was taken. I saw her gardener on his hands and knees. Maybe he did it, I said. You know, put the hose away for the winter. But no, she asked him. I don’t want to be paranoid, but maybe it’s a case of Garden Envy. Sorry, I shouldn’t make light of this. As for the murder, I heard the news from a mutual acquaintance and he told me that Mr. T was still in shock. I mean one sees this on Law and Order and in movies, but to actually find a body, especially the body of someone you know, has to be devastating.

I’ve got to go even though there’s still so much to talk about and even though we just saw each other. (What am I? Sixteen?) My niece, the one who got married last year, the one who resembles Penelope Cruz, ah such beauty, is coming for lunch and I still have to prepare a few things.  

 I only have to be in school until noon on Wed. as we are in exams. I do have a Heads’ Meeting, which I plan to skip – not easy to do, but I am determined not to hang around waiting to sit through another meeting until 4. The VP, (nicknamed The VP on Crack because she is always so agitated and speaks so fastrepeatingeverythingthreetimesis responsible for taking an agenda with 15 items and making it 45 items (15 x 3). 

I’ll go by your schedule. Let me know.
