MefiNYC: Who wants to go see Grumblebee's play? There's already a meetup being planned for the 11th, so maybe we could go then, or another night altogether? The show opens Thursday.

Cool, Grumblebee! Break a, erm, stinger.

Thanks for the kind wishes, everyone. If any of decide to come, make sure you stop say "hi." By the way, the show is only an hour and 15 minutes long -- not too taxing. This is strange for us. We usually do uncut, five-act plays.

Astro Zombie, break a leg with your show!

Gracias! You too!

I say, let's go on the 11th, and then go to Revival! Who is down?

The problem is that the show is on the UWS and Revival aint. I was thinking of going to the opening anyone else game?

Hmm, good point.

god forbid I not be the only one to journey from the UWS to downtown.

oh wait, i forgot. after i bitched about this month upon month, a group of you planned an uws meetup without actually discussing it in metatalk at all until the date was set, and i was out of town that weekend.

At least you're not bitter about it.

No, I'm a glass-is-half-full kind of guy.

When I was your age, I'd drive from Connecticut to go to a meetup.

Traffic both ways

Yaaaaaaaay nomad.

(So you'll come to Revival on February 11th, then? I'm gonna bring Valentines. And candy hearts.)

woo-hoo to the invincible chauffeur.

I'd tell Astro Zombie to break a leg, too, but I'm not sure a broken leg means much to a zombie. He'd just go right on stumbling forward with that same lurching gait. How do you wish luck to a theatrical zombie? "Take a headshot," maybe?

Whatever it is, Astro Zombie, consider it wished!

Tickets are selling FAST. The theatre only seats 30 people, so if it sells out, I won't be able to let people in at the door. Strangely, we've sold almost no tickets for opening night (tomorrow), but other nights are doing brisk service.

I don't go to plays anymore - too many freakin' snobs. Oh, my rainbow-fro is in your way? Sorry princess, I didn't see any "no clowns allowed" signs when I came in. heh. I'd wear a hair net, but they don't make 'em this large. Ya know, People talk about freedom, but when they see a dunk-tank clown exercising it, they act like their freakin' heads are on fire. hehe.

Oh, you don't like the smell of stale-water? I smell like a tadpole, do I? You don't like it - go do some lines of baby powder, yer majesty. hehehe. Maybe I don't like the smell of cinnamon sticks, hazelnut coffee, Gold Bond and Snuggle, ever think of that? hehehe. Hey you're no Joan Collins, lady. hehe.

What tha!? Hey kid, do I throw gum in your hair? No, this isn't a god-damned wig! Go tell a stranger you'd like a kid-nap...hehehe. Better yet - go stick your pee-pee in a Hot Pocket, eh? heh. Freakin'...

So yeah, I buy my plays off the street now...hehe.
