I did not mean to stay up until 1:30 in the morning writing a monologue about my boobs. I swear to god I didn't. But that's the theme for ETC's fall showcase this year, and I thought I'd missed the deadline, but it turned out that they extended it until Friday, so… here I am.

1:30 in the morning, and I just sent the club president a monologue called "I Have Fantastic Tits."



…yeah. That may be the weirdest email I've ever sent. Anyway, it's obviously completely unedited, and the ending is a bit rough, but I present to you my monologue on the manifold glories of breasts.

Under here. )

And now I am very sleepy indeed, but at least I will not go to bed trying to remember the phrase "the Mary Poppinses of breasts". I may regret that more in the morning, when I have to get up and get out before everyone else gets the bright idea to go home early for the Labor Day holiday.

As expected, my mother knew exactly which monologue was mine. The Dorothy Sayers reference does kinda give me away. Luckily, she was not awkward about it.

Now I'm going to fall over, because I never really woke up this morning.

Practicing my ETC monologue (next Friday and Saturday night at 10 or 10:30, somewhere! Why yes, we are very definite). It's about wanting something—someone—you can't have.

Why no, I can't relate to that at all. I certainly did not write my own monologue about a Very Similar Subject, although from a somewhat different angle.

Ah, my life. The more things change…

I love Slings and Arrows not with a fiery passion, but with a deep abiding love. It has catchy music (see the awesome opening song for each season), wonderful acting (see the whole freaking cast, but especially Paul Gross as Geoffrey Tennant), and more great dialogue than you can shake a stick at (and more than I can list in parentheses).

If you have not heard of Slings and Arrows, please accept my heartiest recommendation that you view it at your earliest convenience. It's three seasons of 6 episodes apiece, and it's an absolute delight. There are madmen and lovers and ghosts and villains and charmingly cynical old gay men. It is, in some ways, a love song to the theater--not only to the good, the times when everything is flying, but to the banal and the times when everything comes crashing down. And, of course, it is a love song to everything Shakespeare can be, when done properly and directed by a madman.

So, I have made my return to the (very small-scale no-pressure community theater) stage without more than the usual number of hitches, and I'm glad. I haven't been in a play since Good Woman, and there was a long period when I was afraid it had put me off acting entirely. I had great fun tonight, however, and only screwed up a little.

I will just mention, for like the billionth time, that my personal favorite thing about this play is the number of times I get to scream at the top of my lungs.
