Spinning Office Chairs

Thursday, January 04, 2007
Oh, the fun I have during the daylight hours. Right now, I'm blogging, but very dizzily, as moments ago I was spinning around, kneeling on my desk chair, puncuating the play titles Breanne read off with "Of Death" at the end of each. Yes, busy days, here at Un-named Theatre Company. On the upside, my craziness and angst over writing this press kit is only a fraction of the craziness experienced by she who does the program (in pink and orange text, for editing purposes).

Last night, I was attempting to have a hot bath and drink hot cocoa and read a sad book, but our hot water heater crapped out, so I had a chilled bath, and drank hot cocoa and read a sad book. I've already read this particular book, The Time Traveler's Wife, so I know how it ends. I wonder, does knowing how something ends amplify the emotional effect? We all know that Romeo and Juliet are gonna die, so does that knowledge make it more tragic? What about happy endings?

If we knew how our lives were going to turn out, would that make living them a more enjoyable experience, because we no longer had to worry about the unknown...or is it the surprise that makes things worthwhile?

Just pensive, on this, the day before Friday.
