I’m Swiss and I’m spending the night

Or, in other words, j’y suis et j’y reste. The three of us agreed to sign a 7-month lease. Guildenstern will soon be living in Gainesville with a friend of ours, and we’re treating Pied’s ‘rodent ulcer’ so that she’s adoptable.

I’ve recently listened to You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown (1999 Broadway Revival Cast).  After listening to it, I looked through the booklet and said to myself, “Gee, Charlie Brown looks familiar…”  Sure enough, it was Anthony Rapp!  And who’s that playing Sally?  Why, it’s Kristin Chenoweth!  Good stuff.

Jodi and I were watching Gay, Straight or Taken? last night, and I was intrigued by the tagline, which said that it’s a game we all play anyway.  That seems pretty accurate; people like to pigeonhole each other as soon as possible.  I certainly loved the look of horror on the contestant’s face when the man she’d identified as straight-and-single said that she was a bit of a diva.  Oh shit, her expression seemed to say, straight men don’t use the word ‘diva’.  And sure enough, he won a tropical vacation with his boyfriend.

But the title of the show is wrong to begin with.  The choices presented are gay-and-taken, straight-and-single, and straight-and-taken.  And there’s so much more outside that Venn diagram.  Oh well, too many fish in that barrel.

And if you don’t recognize my new userpic, you need to watch the Windows 386 promo video.

    At the Tony awards, Kristin performed My New Philosphy as Sally just before winning the award. Her thank-you speech included the words “fastest costume change ever.”
