I watched ‘Medea’ last night at the U of R Theatre Dept. Main Stage. The play was written 2500 years ago by Euripides, a Greek poet. In the story, Medea and her two children are dumped by her husband Jason (of Golden Fleece fame) for another woman, King Creon’s daughter. Medea plots her revenge by killing both Creon and his daughter, and just to spite Jason, their own two children as well. The play was not very funny.
It was good to see former classmates on the stage for the final performance of their university careers. We had been through a lot together and I wish them all the best through the budding stages of their acting careers.
On a geeky note, I’ve plucked my domain name from the aether and landed it on my MobileMe account. I am happy about that. It is now possible to copy and paste the addresses to individual articles for your reading pleasure, rather than having to crawl through my whole blog to find them. It’s a small thing, but a big thing too.
I’m also pleased to say that I have joined the real world. It took me a couple of days, after landing in a fog on Wednesday. I went out and did things, but I wasn’t all there when I did them. I also took delivery of the Christmas present I bought for myself. It finally arrived – surface area in the form of a fold-in pine wood bar. I needed a place to put my plants (and doesn’t hurt that it also stocks booze). Another cool feature is that I can sit at it in my director’s chair and use it as a desk.
Like this article, it’s three things for the price of one.
