It's sold out, and I have an extra ticket. $6 if you want to pay me back, but that's not really the point. Want to come?

 

Harvard Square, 6:45 (waitlist seating begins at 6:55)

(I found it first, but rmd beat me to posting it. But LJ is sluggish enough at the moment that it's easier to post via app than get to her post.)

It's our first time using the

electric snowblowerCollapse )

Still a lot of work (she's still out--I'm inside the door letting my toes thaw)--but heaps faster than shoveling.

We have a drip. In the third-floor ceiling.

Well, now we have a hole.

there's a hole in the ceiling, dear Liza, dear LizaCollapse )


It's been enlarged since this pic.

EDIT: So yeah, a little repetitive sound while we were watching TV turned out to be a slow drip onto my laptop keyboard (which appears to have sustained no damage). One drop at a time was seeping through a hairline crack in the plaster. We moved cruft and furniture, rmd cut into the ceiling (which I would not dare do, but hey, I'm not a former electrician!) pulled out insulation and stuff, and found what *appears* to be a small leak of wetness driven sideways by the wind, as opposed to a serious roof problem. We hope. A bucket is in place.

ObSubjectLine: And we left the TiVo paused shortly before Gene Wilder says, "The name! Is! Frankenstein!"

today's Woot shirt. If you're *really* sentimental, don't read the write-up.

For those unfamiliar with Woot, the shirt is $12 today and $15 thereafter until they don't sell enough of it to keep it around. For those *familiar* with Woot, note they've changed where they get their T-shirt blanks from recently and the fit may be slightly different.

in the life of every Gilbert & Sullivan fan *not* born on the 29th of February...

when they realize they have passed Frederic in number of birthdays and there is no going back. It was his 39th today.

EDITED to linkify review.

Two shows left! Tonight, and Saturday matinee. Claudia-Bob sez, check it out.

Theatre@First is in the second week of its performances of Equus, and it's a fantastic, intimate production. No giant horse puppets, no nudity... this is an up-close psychological drama that fits the intimate performance space (a church basement). I got home last night quite overwhelmed by it.

dpolicar directed, lillibet and a newcomer to T@F co-star... And this is the point at which I forgot I wanted to post before leaving the house. Hurray for restore-from-draft, but I won't be elaborating further while thumb-typing on my phone.

There's an excellent review in Bay Windows that I think really "gets" this production. Reserve tix for 8pm tonight or 3pm Saturday, and catch it before it's gone!

Hey, Boston folks. I volunteer at Recording for the Blind & Dyslexic (books on tape, only, you know, they haven't been on tape for a while). I pop into a recording booth for a couple hours at a time and read books that become part of a national library for students with disabilities. I really enjoy it--I've been told I have a good radio voice, and I'm actually probably more anal than they'd like about fixing flubs (they'd actually rather you just repeat the word and move on).

This week is their annual Recordathon, where they try to fill every recording booth for 12 hours a day straight. If anybody would like to join me, there are still some time slots where you could. Or if you're truly heroic, you could replace me tomorrow (Monday) from 4:30-6:30 where I just realized I have colliding dinner plans. Oops.

The reading for Recordathon week is really easy and enjoyable--mostly novels and biographies. In general it's dryer, and lots of text books. They'd love more math&science folks to do books you need math&science clue for. To become a regular volunteer you need to learn how to read diagrams and such, but that's not necessary during the Recordathon... generally all you need to do is remember to say "page 5" and click a mouse, at the top of the page, and they mark each page to remind you to do it. ;-) So if you'd like to try it out, and you can make the times there are still slots free, let me know! I'll be going in Monday afternoon and can write you into the schedule for any timeslots later in the week.

RFB&D is located just outside Porter Square: 2067 Mass. Ave., 3rd floor (there are elevators)

For my own reference, I'm recording:
Monday: 2:30-4:30
Tuesday: 4:30-8:30
Wednesday: 12:30-4:30
Thursday: none at all
Friday: 12:30-2:30
Saturday: 12:30-4:30

I may add more time slots, especially on Saturday, but figured I'd wait and see what time slots other people didn't want.

As of Friday afternoon shortly before they closed, so probably still accurate, they still needed people for:

Updated Friday 2:30pm
Monday: 4:30-6:30, the vacancy I just created (eep)
Tuesday: 8:30-10:30, 4:30-8:30
Wednesday: 6:30-8:30
Thursday: 8:30-10:30
Friday: 12:30-2:30
Saturday: 12:30-4:30

I'll definitely do some Saturday time, I just haven't chosen when, yet. If you'd like to go in with me, that could make up my mind. If you want to go a time I'm already going, that'd be Tuesday 4:30-6:30. ;-) Or ping me and we can figure out another time.
