Day One-Hundred Twenty-One: Brace Yourself for the Mediocre

So, you'll notice I didn't actually updated yesterday's post later at night.

That's because I went to bed at 9:30...and I actually FELL ASLEEP! And I stayed that way until seven this morning! It was a miracle! I have felt so good all day, it's ridiculous.


Summary of last night's happenings:

Don't use UPS. Ever. Do not give them your money ever again. Tell your friends, tell your family. Don't. Use. UPS.

Last night was a night for incredible hockey games (barring the Aeros' 7-0 drubbing, forcing a game seven tomorrow night in Milwaukee). Caps and Pens going 7 after Washington's 5-4 OT win, and Chicago takes out Luongo's Canucks with an amazing 7-5 win.

Now, for the meat of today's post: It was announced this morning at company meeting (and we already have the kids' brochure out), so I suppose it's safe to announce our season for 2009-10:

On the mainstage:

Myrtle: A Melodrama, by Jeannette Clift-George
O Little Town of Bagels, Teacakes, and Hamburger Buns, by Jeannette Clift-George
Ret., by Jeannette Clift-George
The Little Foxes, by Lillian Hellman

Note: Spike Manton? Anything written by a Spike Manton has GOT to be awesome.

On the children's stage:
The Secret Garden, based on the book by Frances Hodgson Burnett, adapted by Marion Arthur Kirby
Do You Hear What I Hear?, by yours truly
Laura Ingalls Wilder: Voice of the Prairie, by Kathryn Schultz Miller
Alice Now!, adapted from the book by Lewis Carroll, book and lyrics by Jeannette Clift-George

So, there's that.

As Robbie says, "GO PENWINNNN!"
