Ingratitude! thou marble-hearted fiend...

“Ingratitude is treason to mankind.” James Thomson

Disease and drama.

So where was I?

Isn't that relentless barking irritating? Sorry about that.

There is some kind of lurgy dogging me yet again and if it wasn't for the persistent meatiness of my physique, you might imagine I was a tragic consumptive, what with all the snotty hacking and reclining on my fainting couch in my bohemian garrett draped in diaphanous gowns holding a bloodstained hankie to my lips, etc.

And in other news, despite all the evidence to the contrary, turns out I am not getting any younger. How very disappointing.

I'm not sure why I thought this sounded like a good idea, but to celebrate my upcoming birthday I'm going to face my fears, dance with the devil and/or frolic in the forest Thursday night. Apparently.

I'm a little trepidatious about the whole 'breaking the fourth wall' thing. Theatre means, for me, that everyone knows who is in the audience and who is performing. Because otherwise what else is there to distinguish it from real life? If I wanted to live in fear of alarmingly unpredictable interaction with strangers, I could save some money and take the night bus.

The food should be thoroughly stonking though, so that's nice.

What are you up to?
