1. Tonight was the spring term Shakespeare Showcase. They've been going on for sixteen years now. I'm going to write a longer post about its evolution in the near future, but I'm proud of what's happening with it, in part, because I hatched this project back in the fall of 1991 and it's become quite a show. We had a full house tonight!
2. The post-Showcase party was alive with good food, animated conversation, and a good buzz among the party-goers. I had to leave early because of my obligations tomorrow and, well, because of the animated conversation and buzz. It was a little too noisy for me, largely because I was tired!
3. K-Doe showed up at the house today with a chunk of Trader Joe's White Stilton cheese with apricots. She'd brought it to the Friday night English department party, I told her how much I liked it, and, wow, she showed up today to give me some more. What generous and lovely gift!
