Langford and Work and Plays, Oh My!

Sticking my head above water for a few minutes.  Work has been very busy these last two weeks, and most of my contact with the outside world has consisted of reading tweets from the Langford trial.  Can you believe Larry didn’t testify?  I’m sure his attorneys did everything short of duct-taping him to the chair to keep him off the witness stand.

Great trial coverage at the Birmingham Weekly, archiblog, WBHM, and of course real-time updates on Twitter @BhamWeekly and @JohnArchibald.

I’ll be back soon, and Del is around.  Our family is in theatre mode right now, so look forward to updates on Schoolhouse Rock Jr.A Christmas Story and A South City Christmas.

What are you up to these days?  Let us know in the comments.

    Does the absence of comments mean that no one is up to anything these days?

    I think the absence of comments means no one is reading these days. :)

    I read. I just don’t write. It’s one long slog from now until Christmas – and then my own non-stop-theater-bop starts in January. Oy.

    Isn’t it sad that the holidays end up being a marathon grind instead of time to celebrate? Just trying to figure out where we’ll spend Thanksgiving is enough to induce high blood pressure.

    *sigh*

    And I agreed to do another show in April. Good thing it’s a musical revue with no lines to learn. :)

    A cookbook that’s more chat than cook, “One Bite Won’t Kill You” by Ann Hodgman, has this wonderful paragraph in the “holiday” section.

    For many of us, of course, Christmas is the worst offender. And it’s not enough to say—as so many husbands and other “concerned” adults do say—”Yes, but we’ll all enjoy the day more if you were more relaxed.” This is only true up to a point. You’d be plenty relaxed if you spent Christmas Day lying on the sofa eating candy and reading mysteries. But it wouldn’t be much of a Christmas for anyone else.
