Date Night

Dan and I went to one of the local theaters tonight. His friend Joyce from the university was acting in a show and had put us on the standby list, so we got in for free. The acting was terrific, but I felt like the play itself rambled, full of people doing a lot of talking and wisecracking that didn’t really go anywhere.

So. Great performance, but the material didn't really live up to the talent. I've posted a more specific writerly critique for anyone interested in that sort of thing.

It was nice to be on a “date,” regardless of the play, and we went for Vietnamese food afterwards with Joyce. We were out until 11:00—quite late to be out on a work night, with still so much to do at home before bedtime.

And me with projects due tomorrow and trying to shake off a cold!

I sure am glad it’s the end of the week.
