The Full Monty

Ever have one of those months?

Where you're just absolutely miserable and nothing seems to go right and it takes every single tiniest smidgeon of energy to remain professional and not dump on people who don't deserve to be dumped on? (and even fail at that - sorry, Laura)

And then, as you're nearing the end of the month, something comes along at just the right time that makes you laugh so hard your muscles hurt and you're feeling high for hours after?

That just happened! (thanks, Coleen!)

Sorry for those not local to me, but for those that are, please hie thee hence to Toby's of Baltimore.

This is absolutely one of the best shows I've seen from Toby's in quite a while, and Toby's is a fairly consistantly good theater.

The thing about it is, because of the whole "everyman" plot thing, they had the opportunity to cast some truly phenomenally talented guys who wouldn't normally get such large featured roles (no pun intended) because they don't have that "leading man" look about them. So the cast was just tremendous.

And the show is SO funny, I laughed so hard (again, no pun...) and I cried (in the right way) and I screamed and cheered. It was totally better than Cats.

Plus, having Toby herself lean over at the end of the show and say "okay, who saw pee-pees?" would have been worth it anyway....

So now I'm in a good mood, and have most of the weekend off, with a small bit of indoctrinating teaching some friends how to spindle on Sunday, and plans to go to Indian food with friends on Monday, so it's all looking up.

I may even clean house tomorrow.

But no promises.
