1. I'm going to see Tom Stoppard's play The Real Thing at South Coast Rep tomorrow afternoon (it's a matinee, natch) and my date cancelled on me so now I have an extra ticket. Anyone wanna see The Real Thing? The first person who calls me asking for it, gets to be my matinee date. (This is New Thing #95: I solicited a date through my blog.) (Maybe "solicited" is the wrong word for it.) (And this doesn't have to be a man-date.) (I would love for it to be a friend date.) (I just don't feel like making phone calls to offer up the ticket and thought that it would be fun to see if anyone would read my blog and then call me and be like, "yes! i'm in!") (So we'll see.) (Obviously, you have to be in Southern California to take me up on this offer.)
2. I'm working on a new play and one of the characters in the play only speaks Spanish, which is kind of difficult since I, um, don't speak Spanish at all. Right now I'm just writing her lines in English, and I'll have them translated into Spanish later, but I wanted to put some feelers out...anyone out there in my blogging community know Spanish well enough to do some translating for me, somewhere down the line? Thanks. (This is New Thing #96: I asked for a favor via my blog.) (It's seriously not a huge favor--it won't be that much dialogue.)
3. and this isn't a question, it's just a new thing. New Thing #97: I wrote something under a pseudonym. I can't say what it was that I wrote because that would defeat the purpose of it having been written under a pseudonym, but I need to at least record the fact that I did it because I've never written something under a pseudonym before and I've gotta take credit for each and every New Thing that I do because I am SO FREAKING BEHIND on my New Things! Like, holly cow! I have to do two New Things a day for the next god-knows-how-many-days just to catch up!
