God Shave the Queen

(no subject)

I had a strange dream last night. Of course I don't remember many of the details, but Becky and mom and I went to my aunt's house together, except it was also a hotel. And we had to scrub the walls and ceilings. And also there was a creature (which I'll call Herbert) that was, essentially, a very tiny shrew with insect wings. Actually, Herbert started out as a regular sized shrew that we thought was something like a cockroach (until we got a good look at it and realized it was furry) and by the end of the dream, it was only the size of a mosquito.

And then there was a sign on a door and it said "NO BOOKWORMS ALLOWED" and we realized that Herbert was, in fact, a bookworm, despite being 1)a shrew, 2)not wormlike in any way, and 3)not interested in books for any reason.
Brilliant!

Reduced Shakespeare Co.

Mom and I just went to see Reduced Shakespeare: All the Great Books (abridged) at the Civic Center.

It was a BLAST!

It's a 3-man comedy troupe and they go through "all the great books" in less than 2 hours. Great fun. If you go into the cast bios, the guys who performed for us were Michael Faulkner, Mick Orfe, and Dustin Sullivan and they were all totally adorkable! If this show ever comes to your area, I recommend it. It's extremely silly and involves some audience participation, but if you sit far enough back, you shouldn't have to worry about it.
