Now I woke up with a hangover...
So life for the few days has consisted of @AOTS, play revision, & “Fringe.” But tonight I will be social! (Then go home for more “Fringe.”)

Wow, this 1stweek of writing-for-live-TV has left me Tweet-less. But it’s been crazy fun. If y’all have any Qs about it, I’ll try to answer.
Question: Would there be interest in me reading “Eat, Pray, Love” for the 1st time on Sunday and live-tweeting it? I hear it’s snark-worthy.

In which I do something new.
So I was going to maybe go on vacation this summer — someplace cheap and low-key, with umbrella drinks and a beach. Instead, I’m taking a two-week leave of absence from NewTeeVee, starting Friday, to go write on G4’s Attack of the Show. This will be… different from that.

British politics are fascinating on a number of levels, but most interesting for Americans might be this: Right now the balance of power between Conservative and Labor comes down to which side can convince the Liberal Democrats to join them. This is what one three-party system looks like.
