As You Like It

I have a handful of posts that I've started typing on my Palm, but haven't finished or posted yet. I must get onto this soon. In the meantime, here's a small effort to avoid growing the list of things to post.

We (Theresa and I) went to see As You Like It on Wednesday night. Como Gardens is a lovely setting for a play. They moved us around a few times, thus separating the court from the forrest. It was quite easy to follow, even though I didn't actually finish the script when I was reading it a while back. John Jenkins played Jaques, which is how we heard of it. The company's Green Cyc and they'll be playing both As You Like It and Snow White in Apollo Bay, Colac and Lorne, before coming to The Briars. If it's not going to be too much of a strain to have overlapping theatre commitments, maybe I should audition for Hartwell's As You Like It.

Emma and Shane gave us a lift home, accompanied by lively discussion and Shane repeatedly asking "when are you two getting married?"... Theresa replied with "if it ain't broke, don't fix it". It occurred to me that if a relationship is broke, marriage won't fix it, which just goes to show that you should only get married if your marriage is neither broke nor unbroke... Or if you're highly religious. We were then cajoled into disclosing our life stories, prior engagements and relationship history. I commented that Theresa's approach is "you're only as old as the person you feel", and I learnt that my time is running out: once I hit 30, I'm over the hill... :-(

Now onto this weekend. Yesterday, after failing to go Christmas shopping, we had the company of Theresa's parents for dinner and a game of Quizzit. Lovely salads - the baked potato salad worked much better than I expected - good work Theresa. Today be rehearsal, committee meeting, shopping, stress.
