v2, d260: Debacle...ARROW'd!...debauchery

"Debacle." Not the same thing as "debauchery."  And as funny as it is when you accidentally use the latter instead of the former in a sentence, it could lead to some fairly uncomfortable ramifications.

Hope everyone's doing well.  I've had a pretty good week.  Had a last-second workshop to plan on Thursday morning, but I think it went pretty well.  It helped that the class (7th and 8th graders) was respectful and well-behaved.  You really never know what you're walking into with a middle-school theater workshop.  It could be a delight, it could be a debacle. 

But not the other word.

Stayed up late the other night looking up writer-type stuff.  Most of the opportunities out there require you to have finished something or other. Dang.  I gotta get on that.

Hey, The Hobbit is really pretty good.  You oughtta come.  I just finished reading the book. Turns out, it's hard to read a book for leisure when you're working on it all day at your nine-to-five. Partly because you already know how it's going to end.  I devoured the last couple chapters, however, because they were exciting and don't happen in the play.  Though now I have a fun visual of trying to stage the War of Five Armies with seven actors.  It looks more like a cosplay-inspired WWE royal rumble, only with no scantily clad women.  Because Smaug apparently ate all the women.  Possibly because they were scantily-clad, since that's how both cosplaying women and WWE girls dress.  Conclusion: Smaug is basically the network censor for middle earth.  The Black Arrow, then, represents the moral degradation of society? 

Hey, what to you know?  We've sorta worked our way back to "debacle" vs "debauchery"!
