December 1

Yes, I know Blogger will apply the date for me, but this is a date that requires a header, too! It’s the beginning of the silly season (I think New Yorkers apply that to an entirely different time of year, but oh well) when shopping is a serious pursuit and everyone’s always about to go to a party and no gets anything done at work because all the key people are away on vacation. I think enough Christmas carols, or nearly enough, have now been written that we might be able to get through the season without hearing any given one (or version of one) more than eleven times, but who cares if we do?

Things are shiny in Rose-coloured land. I got out the Hannukkah hand towels last night (it has gold embroidery floss on the candle flames!)

Two things to do today, being posted way too late, but no one’s really free today anyway. But if you were, you could go to:

Friday, November 30, 2007
WHAT: City of Craft
WHO: 60+ craft vendors, community groups, installation artists & workshop leaders
WHEN: Saturday December 1, 2007, 11am-8pm
WHERE: The Theatre Centre, 1087 Queen Street West at Dovercourt (enter in the blue doors on Dovercourt).

Possibly followed by a staged reading of
THE HOUSE OF MANY TONGUES by Jonathan Garfinkel
With Hrant Alianak, Maev Beaty, David Fox, Janick Hebert, Daniel Karasik, Julian Richings
A house in Jerusalem, 2003, is home to Israeli General Shimon, and his 16 year old son Alex, who’s busy trying to bring peace to the Middle East through improved sexual techniques. When Palestinian writer Abu Dalo returns to the house he left 40 years ago, pursued by his long-lost daughter, we realize somehow these four people are going to have to live together – if they don’t kill each other first.

Whatever you do, I hope it’s great day! Really, though, it could hardly miss.

A very shiny nose (like a lightbulb)
