too much on my plate now so sleep is, of course, taking a back seat.
i honestly hope R+G is as wonderful as it could be. a lot is being thrown around and together here at the end and it worries me. in any case shows are this Friday and Saturday at 8pm, Sunday at 2pm and next Friday and Saturday at 8pm. even with it's issues it'll be superb because of jonas and stacey - their chemistry makes the show what it is.
and because i'm short on my own words right now and i a part in R+G reminded me of this passage:
"Are you happy?" asked Mr. Nancy, suddenly. He had been staring at Shadow for several hours. Whenever Shadow glanced over to his right, Mr. Nancy was looking at him with his earth-brown eyes.
"Not really," said Shadow. "But I’m not dead yet."
"'Call no man happy until he is dead.' Herodotus."
Mr. Nancy raised a white eyebrow, and he said, "I’m not dead yet, and, mostly because I’m not dead yet, I’m happy as a clamboy."
"The Herodotus thing. It doesn’t mean that the dead are happy," said Shadow. "It means that you can’t judge the shape of someone’s life until it’s over and done."
"I don’t even judge then," said Mr. Nancy. "And as for happiness, there’s a lot of different kinds of happiness, just as there’s a hell of a lot of different kinds of dead. Me, I’ll just take what I can get when I can get it."
