My Prerogative

I plan on going to see this tonight. From what I've gathered about the opera, it should be a fantastical time. Not being a classical music aficionado I'm not real familiar with Maurice Ravel's work, but L'enfant et les Sortileges looked too fun to pass up. And it's free!

Though I'll find out a definite answer soon, I'm excited at the thought that I could potentially be getting paid to be an extra in a film starring Christopher Walkin, Morgan Freeman, and William H. Macy. There's also a possibility that I'll be an extra in a movie with Cameron Diaz and Frank Langhella as well. Keep your fingers crossed for me!

Finished A House Like A Lotus. I tend to enjoy anything Madeleine L'Engle wrote (still sad she died), but I definitely liked this much more than An Acceptable Time even though the latter is a direct sequel to this one.

Now I start on Sabriel by Garth Nix. I've read it before but it was over a year long period and done in bursts. I didn't really get a sense of the whole story and I wanted to give it another chance since so many people tell me I should love it.

Oh, and my favorite quote from A House Like A Lotus?

"I do not think it is love if it is too easy."

Chew on that whilst I escape from the office.

I thought Maddy was still alive. Aw man. That's sad.

There's a guy who inspired her and G.K. Chesterton and C.S. Lewis that I've been looking into...I think his name is George MacDonald, he wrote a book called "Phantases" that Lewis apparently picked up at a train station and it changed his life.

Anyway, the new RPG books are, largely, for a game I've never played, and I'd much prefer to run other games. But perhaps I'll come up to Boston for a while, as you and Anthony are there. If you aren't too grown up for games and we can get a group together...who knows?

First, never say "April" "cum" and "schoolgirl" again in the same sentence. I am but a man. And I also loved TMNTrilogy, but it was so cornball, the Iroquois could have used it as a primary grain! Ba-zing!
