My Shakespeare family, or most of them at least. These are the lovelies I've been living, working, and playing with for a good two months now. I can't imagine my life without them. This is all us at Orphan Thanksgiving.
The view of last night. All these kids in the past four days performed ten Shakespeare shows with more passion and enthusiasm than any professional show I've ever seen, and they cheered each other on like they were watching the Superbowl. It was the most amazing thing I've ever seen, and I was lucky enough to be a part of it.
When is too early to start preparing for Christmas? Right now, we're less than a week out from Thanksgiving and usually I'm adamant about not starting one holiday before the other one's done. On the other hand, this house all decked out in Christmas-ware? Made my day.
There is a tradition building among the lovely group I've been hanging out and working with for the past two months, and that tradition is Shakespearean Burger Night. This is my darling roommate and several of my friends at last night's SB Night, and it was one of the best times I've had with these guys.
This is my favorite brunch restaurant ever. I go here with friends practically every week - they have delicious organic omelets and pancakes and really good coffee to boot. Best thing about this week's visit was that it was a weekday morning, so the place was practically empty and we could sit and relax as long as we wanted.
While on an afternoon walk, I startled a bobcat lurking around one of the old abandoned houses on the property where I'm staying. He stared at me in astonishment for a few moments and I caught him just as he slinked away.
At a wonderful showing of Antony and Cleopatra last night, I saw this dress out in the lobby - it's a costume from Shakespeare's Cymbeline for one of my favorite characters, Imogen. I saw myself so easily wearing this and playing that role.
