The very def­i­n­i­tion of “slow news day”: Res­cued kit­ty feel­ing bet­ter.

We went to see As You Like It, per­formed by the local 7 Ages the­atre group. I quite enjoyed it. Kath­leen, who saw it last night as well, said that the per­for­mances were much improved. The fool Touch­stone stole the show, caper­ing and danc­ing, mut­ter­ing and mim­ing. As usu­al, it took me awhile to get the hang of Shake­speare’s Eng­lish, but once I was in the right mode I found that the sto­ry just ticked away like a smooth-run­ning gun. 

I can’t rec­om­mend the film My Sum­mer of Love; by movie’s end, I’d found not a sin­gle sym­pa­thet­ic char­ac­ter in it, and I want­ed to punch them all, from the girls to the moody born-again-but-not-real­ly broth­er to the neglect­ful father. Why o why do I only seem to end up show­ing the grim and dark and ulti­mate­ly depress­ing flicks?Anyways. Hope you all had a good week­end. Later!
