Audition: The Importance of Being Earnest
Today I auditioned for the Columbus Civic Theater’s winter production of Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest. I’ve always been a fan of this play—I read it in my college drama class, the movie with Colin Firth and Reese Witherspoon is one of my favorites, and I generally love Wilde’s writing. So when I got this audition notice in my inbox, I thought, why...

Review from the London Film Festival Savannah Film Festival Another hot contender in the race for Best Picture is Danny Boyle’s 127 Hours , based on Aaron Ralstrom’s Between a Rock and A Hard Place, which details his harrowing hiking ordeal where he was forced to amputate part of his right arm to extricate himself from a canyon. (Yeah. Gross.) James Franco plays Ralstrom in the...
Girly Products :)
It’s really irritating when all sorts of grooming products run out at the same time, but when you’ve already planned a Sephora trip…it’s not so bad. :) The haul: 1) Philosophy’s Gingerbread Man body scrub. Every year, I say I’m going to try this, and every year, I miss it! Not this year! Squee! 2) Philosophy’s Chocolate Bark shampoo, conditioner, body...

that is when I’ll be excited about going to the Cleveland Clinic for a visit. I’ve only been there a few times, before NCH had their transplant program up and running. Well now that we’re “in between” lung transplant directors, I have to go make a trek to the CC to “touch base” so that if “anything comes up” I will have a transplant center,...

You know, I work in politics. I’ve worked on some campaigns. And I know that they can get…volatile. Tetchy. They can hit below the belt. But this stuff, out of Minnesota…this is super low. And I gotta ask—if these ads attacked Jews, or Muslims, or even other Christians—what would the public be saying?
A dress for Jane
And Elinor. And Marianne. And Elizabeth. And Fanny! And Julia! And Emma And Harriet And Anne… So, I just ordered this dress last Friday…and I got it today. Shabby Apple. Do you know about them? You should! If you like dresses, you should run over to their site, oooh and ahh, and then order your pretty Christmas dress from there! The fabric on this dress is divinely soft. The...

from The Barefoot Contessa at Home I’ve never really been a panna cotta fan. Some restaurants make it so bland it’s like eating gelatin-y mush. And some make it so firm it’s not really enjoyable to eat. So I was never really tempted to make me own—plus, you needed unflavored gelatin powder, and that sounded unreasonably exotic to me. Well, I got over it. And I am so glad...

Emily Cooks: Chicken Salad Veronique
from Barefoot Contessa at Home I’ve always liked the look of this salad: it’s a pretty pastel-y green, thanks to all the greenness in it, with little diced chicken bits. But when a recipe calls for bone in, skin on chicken breasts, I usually say, no thanks. Ugh. More chicken to buy and mess with. Then I changed my tune, and now I am not afraid of said chicken. In this recipe, I was...

Seven Quick Takes Friday XXIX
1) This post brought to you by Caribou Coffee and my lunch hour. :) And the letter “F”, since it’s Friday. :) 2) Trying to decide if I want to go to the Symphony tonight or tomorrow. I’m feeling really perky today and my hair looks good…so I’m thinking tonight? It’s an all-Baroque program. (I just love that scene!) 3) A beautiful fall day here in...
