*deep breath*


Seriously, this was the first Super Bowl I've been interested in for a reason other than the commercials or the halftime show. And my team WON. WHEE!

A queez!

You are breakfasty, like a pile of pancakes on a Sunday morning that have just the right amount of syrup, so every bite is sweet perfection and not a soppy mess. You are a glass of orange juice that's cool, refreshing, and not overly pulpy. You are the time of day that's just right for turning the pages of a newspaper, flipping through channels, or clicking around online to get a sense of how the world changed during the night. You don't want to stumble sleepily through life, so you make a real effort to wake your brain up and get it thinking. You feel inspired to accomplish things (whether it's checking something off your to-do list or changing the world), but there's plenty of time for making things happen later in the day. First, pancakes.

Srsly. We're about to do some Stoppard in my acting class, and while I've seen the play twice, I'd never actually read it before. So it counts :P

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern was one of the most hilarious books I ever read in English in high school. It was wonderful XD

I count "R&G" as one of the more influential texts I ever tripped across. The notion of giving these minor characters the spotlight, of moving the proverbial camera during the whole "Hamlet" thing to another room... yes, there's more to the play than the central conceit/gimmick, but a young writer can get his mind blown just on the basics. More than one (though not all) of my scripts betray the influence, I think.

Regrettably, I never got to do it for a class.

(I'm 98% sure we had this conversation already, probably around the "Travesties" time, but you know I love repeating the good ones.)

Not sure if you noticed, but JoCo was interviewed on This Week In Tech this week (www.twit.tv). They spend a good hour talking to him about a bunch of stuff that at least I found interesting.

Also: I found myself spontaneously doing the Code Monkey dance after I listened to the song for probably the first time in three months. That thing is engrained into my friggin brain, man.
