1. Boo, I missed your play. How was Sunday night? I was so disheartened by Saturday night that I couldn't get myself out the door Sunday, despite at least three tries. Also I was in bed by nine. I'm a lame-o sometimes.

2. Veggie curry with raisins, cashews and lots of cilantro over brown rice. Yum.

3. 4 or 5 times a day, easy.

Well, all in all I was mostly just bored. I thought Schatzie and Paul B.'s scripts were both really good, but got muddled up with poor directing and acting. (With the most major exception of Laura Carpenter in the Paul play; she cracks me up.) Ann's I thought wasn't bad, except by the end I still had no idea what her point was (and I suspect, neither did she, though I could just have been being blonde and missed something profound. Jon M. was pretty damn cute in that one, too.)

Shane's...oy. Although it had a few funny lines in it, I did not go to the Overnighters to be preached at. And the thing is I really LIKE Shane and I think he is very talented on all fronts, and I don't mind his Mormon values (for him) but it didn't make good theatre for ME. (And as everyone knows, it's all about me.) On the whole, I generally just felt that the song gimmick plus the silly costumes created more of a burden than an inspiration for the playwrights, and some of the hammy and amateur acting and low-grade directing just kinda made the end product, in my opinion, not very good.

And the thing is that I was totally aware of being a minority in the audience; people were having a really great time and laughing a lot, all be it at that I didn't think was very funny. And Rodney and I sort of disagreed on the point that I think that all participants in the ONs should be more concerned with what ends up onstage, rather than just being there to have a good time. Which begs the question, are the ONs just about the players having fun and being together (not that thats a bad thing at all - but if thats the case then I think admission should be, like, $2), or is everyone there in an honest effort to create some good theatre for a paying audience?

I'm still kinda bummed I missed Sunday night though. Any gems in the bunch?

2. Leftover hamburger helper for me. But I made pizza pockets for everyone else.

3. All the time.
