Alaskans for Global Warming

Another Day in Paradise

We finally got some more snow yesterday. Just a couple inches but still, snow! Of course it is supposed to get up ro 36 degrees today, which has been the way of this winter. Butt-numbing cold for weeks, then it warms up to snow for a day or two, keeps warming up until there is a good layer of slush and then back in the deep freeze, now with extra ice! *sigh* I want a really good snowpocolypse so I can have a guilt-free snow day. Did you know I have lived in Alaska for about 15 years and I've only seen one blizzard?

I am house managing two school shows again this morning. The performance is a one-woman show about Harriet Tubman. I got to meet the actress yesterday and she is incredibly nice. I had a great crew of ushered yesterday too. They were all sitting on the benches across the lobby from my station and, when I tried to gather them up for orientation, I was met with moans of "No! You come to us! We're old!"

That is about the news here. So thrilling.

Little Miss Giggles


This may only be funny to those who have done or heard a post -show Q-&-A with students but...

Part of house managing the show has been getting to cue the actress playing Harriet Tubman for her first entrance. I get to feel all stage manager-y.


Just as the executive director of the company who brought up the show was telling the kids that there would be a Q-&-A after the performance, the actress turned to me and says in an overly-eager tone "How old are you?"

I replied gleefully "How long did it take you learn all those LINES?"

And we giggled madly.
