Hello my lovely readers!
No, I have not lost my mind. I know today is Saturday. Yesterday was just too busy to get a Friday Fun post up!
Right after work, I went to MIT where I was meeting a long-time friend (and her new significant other) for dinner followed by a local production of Stephen Sondheim’s Into the Woods. I’d seen the recorded Broadway version, but never seen it live. I was quite excited.
We had Mexican food for dinner (chips and guac ftw) then settled in for the play. The local folks did quite a good job, showing lots of enthusiasm. In particular, the women playing the Baker’s Wife and the Witch had superb singing abilities. The set design was also creative and highly functional. Most of the set changes from homes to the woods didn’t take long at all. I also, as always, enjoyed “Hello Little Girl.” Yes, I know it’s deliciously creepy, that’s the point, eh?
It was so nice to get out to see a show! I hadn’t in a long time. I also hadn’t seen my friend in forever, so it was great to catch up.
Gizmo’s Book Reviews interviewed me. Check that out to see what celebrity I’d be most distracted by if s/he walked into a restaurant I was in.
Cynthia Shepp hosted a guest post in which I talked about why I chose Boston as a setting. She also hosted a giveaway, which is now closed. Congrats to the winner!
That’s it! As I said, a quieter week, but still containing lots of variety. Both of these ladies were also an entire pleasure to work with.
In other writing/publishing news, I had a short story accepted this week! It will be out in September. Check out my publications page for more details.
