i agree lol
well thats what happens when you date someone as wonderful as trillian stars lol...you should have known when she ignored you at the first meeting
she totally did completely ignore me the first time we met. she was like "begone little flyfan."
well when someone is loved by so many one must be careful of who they allow around lol
this post made me ache with love for you!!!! aaargh! I can't stand it!!!!
no doubt because I shook hands with Susan Giddings!

See, it worked just as you described!
you had a fan girl moment :D except I guess it was a fan boy moment....
you and trillian both make me want to see this play!
>a fan boy moment....
srsly, i thought my head was going to pop.
Thank you for sharing this bit of your life. I sit here, grinning like a fool, because I know the same blabbering moment in my own life...
and WiA has it right! That is one giant leap of a non-sequitur! Love it!
i'm glad it's not just me....
Ah, but now your love for Trillian must grow! She is the 'darling favorite actress' of Susan Giddings!
I have been OUTED as probably UNWORTHY! or at the very least some sort of buffoon.
Nah, I'm pretty sure you're worthy. A buffoon? Perhaps. But in a lovable way.
I haven't heard of a play that could invoke that kind of reaction in a long time. This play is only near to you guys? Boo!, for your entry has made me want to see it!
Do you or Trillian have a picture of Miss Giddings in your collection, so others might know what she looks like?
And nice swamp. :)
If you click on Kyle's link to the play, her face is on the advertizing -- she's a magnificent English actress of infinite talent.
in my DREAMS. i'd love to have photographed for that play. it's got such great staging. i brought a point and shoot and could possibly have gotten a photo of the back of her head as she and trill skipped down the street, but the battery died as soon as i pulled it out.
I'm sure they'd love to have you take photos, even now.
I went to college with Maggie Edson, the author. She was my hero when I was a gawky freshman. :-) An awesome, awesome person whose words are pure gold.
God, I wish I were in your neighborhood to see this.
Oh, nice swamp!
come on down and see it! you can stay on the sofa. roswell will sleep on your head.
Roswell on my head! Trillian right there! and Susan Giddings.... *swoons*
Ya know seriously.... I may take you up on that.
Boston's not too far to come for great theatre!!!! And to have Roswell as a pillow!
heh heh great to have someone else entertaining roswell at 4:30 in the morning! "i saw a bug! rub my belly! is my nose cold? can you warm it with your ear? does this hurt? this is my half of the bed!"
we're serious, come on down. you can sleep on the amanda palmer sofa. or the brian viglione sofa. your choice.
Oooohhhh... Decisions! Decisions! *squee*

It must be a bit strange to play a role that gets to the audience that thoroughly. Particularly when most of the audience is seeing the play, or at least the performance, for the first time, whereas after a while the performer is doing it for the umpteenth time; that alone makes it different.
and here's a swamp.
the only version of this i have ever seen is the emma thompson version. it was wonderful.

Wit is indeed very moving
When I was in nursing school some years ago, one of my first classes involved watching the movie of this play. Emma Thompson (swoon) played the lead. So. Powerful.
I think watching that film helped shape my career as a nurse/nurse practitioner. I still get chills thinking about that film. Oh how powerful it would be to see it live. But CA is a long ways away from PA.
Thanks for sharing!
(BTW I think they were in just as good company as you were in theirs)
my heart was racing just reading your review! what a great writer you are!
thanks so much! hope all is well in florida!
No tornados, hurricanes, or floods...just oppressive heat :) nothing we cant handle!
"And thus I am reduced to the whimpering simpleton I am.
And here's a swamp."
you see, sir, being hopelessly outclassed is something you'll just have to get used to. i had thought that being identified by an anonymous someone on the street, in passing
no less, as "Roswell's Dad" would have been enough. sadly, i fear those author interviews and long lines of people at BEA waiting for you to autograph their newly-purchased copy of "american arms, legs, hands and feet" must have pushed your ego back over the edge.
well, if being seen with trillian_stars
isn't enough to remind you of your proper status in the world, i will humbly recommend carrying Roswell around with you wherever you go. maybe that might help, too.
well, we have known that since you first started posting images of her and describing what an interesting person she is.
i'm glad to see you're finally realizing that as well.
Hahaha! XD Love the swamp. ^^
