Also, I want to take a moment to say thanks to the members of my phorum, who are gifting me with an Xbox for my -0th birthday. You guys are the draddest. Special thanks to Sissy, for instigating and overseeing the whole thing. When I added the Xbox to my Amazon wishlist, it was really just a sort of a joke, and I never, ever dreamt anyone would be so generous. And thanks, also, to everyone else who's selected other items from the list. You will surely all make that day a little less awful.
We didn't get tickets for A Midsummer Night's Dream. Jennifer went to the box office, but they were all gone (the tickets, that is). And it looks as though it's going to rain, anyway (this is relevant, because it's open air theatre, which, in my opinion, is the only way to perform A Midsummer Night's Dream). So, we shall all stay home, and I'll cook chicken stew, instead.
