Howdy, y'all!! I'm playing with new templates and trying to get Blogger to actually post things the way I type them instead of one huge, squished-together clump of verbiage, so please feel free to comment on the appearance, format, etc. of The Corner.
So this week has been something of an auspicious one. Our friend Z, who has been babysitting Sharon since she was just a couple of months old, moved away so we enrolled the baby in a nearby day care place. As I am the morning parent I feared the first day I dropped her off as I expected heart wrenching tears. As it turned out she didn't seem in the least bit phased by my leaving her there, but that has been slowly wearing off all week, and today she just stood in the middle of the room crying 'Dada! Dada!' I know she was most likely fine within a few minutes of my leaving, but it left me feeling a bit like a monster. I know we'll both get over it soon, but it is a bit wrenching.
In the world of work we start tech rehearsals for our next show, Fuddy Meers, tomorrow. The set is nearly finished, so I am anticipating a boring time of it for me, which is a good thing.
I don't want to say that I feel guilty about not being that moved by the death of Roger Ebert, though it is sad, but I wasn't a huge fan. I didn't dislike him or anything like that, I just didn't really pay much attention to him. I can say that were it not for him and Gene Siskel giving Robocop two thumbs up, which if you saw the trailers at the time came as quite a surprise, I don't know if I'd have bothered with it. So there is that.
Ok, time to make the donuts. Later, gators.
