15 November 2021

I had to laugh reading answers from Sunday Stealing.  One of the "favorites" was "favorite letter" and everyone talked about the letter of the alphabet.  As a pen pal-er, I only thought about letters that come in the mail!

Theater is back and we went to review Titanic, the Musical on Friday.  This was the second production of the Davis Musical Theater Company.  Everyone in the audience had to wear a mask and show proof of COVID vaccination.

All the cast wore masks too and this time several in the cast wore this new kind of mask, which covers the face, but leaves the mouth visible. It was kind of cool. If masks are going to continue to be needed for theatrical productions, I hope that more actors get this kind of mask.

Titanic was produced in 1997 and took 5 Tonys that year, including best musical.  It is nothing like the movie and concerns more the various individuals and couples who are taking the cruise, in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd class.

While the stage is pretty bare, the sight of all these people checking out the ship is impressive.

We didn't stay for the opening night party--too many other people around--but came home to have a piece of the pumpkin cake Marta had made for dinner the night before.

I have been sleeping lately, getting 6-8 hours of sleep, which is amazing.  I am somehow able to go right back to sleep after getting up for the bathroom in the middle of the night.  And if I can't go right back to sleep, it's nice that it's Sunday becase there is a Monk marathon every Sunday from 3 a.m. until about 7.  I know Monk so well that I don't even need earphones (I mute the sound on the TV at 10 p.m. so it doesn't bother Ned and Marta).  I just read the captions without sound and it eventually puts me back to sleep.

Today I spent the first part of the morning writing the Titanic review (and surprised to find it published on the newspaper's web site in the late afternoon!) and then getting a couple of pen pal letters written.  I also watched the movie Elf in preparation for next week's musical, Elf, at the theater in Woodland.  Then I'll be without theater for several weeks until Titanic and Elf finish their run.

I spent the evening checking in on Hulu and Apple+ shows, plus Call the Midwife, which I love.

I was going to sleep when I remembered that in my list of subjects I have lots of books about I forgot to add elephants, so I had to get up and edit yesterday's entry...and of course, that has led to an hour of web surfing.

NOW to try to sleep!


How's THIS for a trophy?
