We're currently taking a break opening presents (when there's 25 people at xmas, it takes a while :)), but I wanted to drop a note and wish everyone a very merry holiday season and a happy new year :).
Yeah, I know it's dopey, but what do you expect - I'm on vacation :)
Nothing technical, just cute.
Yesterday afternoon, the family went to see "The Fantastiks" (which is still playing, albeit in a very small theater (the actor playing El Gallo had to crouch to avoid the ceiling). During the show, a fire alarm went off, and we dutifully trudged downstairs to the street to await the arrival of the fire department (it was a false alarm, but we didn't know that as we left the theater).
The cast also left the theater, and they were huddled on the corner shivering in he winter cold. I heard the actress playing Luisa chatting on her phone:
"... And we're all standing out here on the street in our costumes!"
It's dorky, I know, but I thought it was funny :).
Btw, the show resumed and was wonderful - it's amazing that it's been continually produced in New York for over 40 years now. Wow.
Sorry about not posting for so long - I'm on vacation for the month of December, so posting will be extremely light (even lighter than usual).
See y'all next year.
