Over at Tote Bags 'n' Blogs


I have begun blogging again once a month at Tote Bags 'n' Blogs -- and the 22nd of the month is "my" day.

So you can stop over there and visit me if you want. I'm talking about the up side of research. In this case the very very very up side -- which entails a trip to New York City tomorrow.

I'm working on George's book, so I'm going to be prowling around Columbia University and, I hope, meeting with a physicist to ground George a bit (not that George isn't grounded. Dear heavens, he's as grounded as they come).

And then I'm going to a play.

Kate Walker wants to go to the play with me. She's been machinating and muttering because she's trying to figure out how to get across the pond and do away with Nancy the cat slayer and take her place (Nancy is coming with me).

Thursday I am going to see A Steady Rain on Broadway. Have you heard of it?

It's a two-man production -- over-lapping monologues, I hear. Stark, disturbing, tough -- about two Chicago cops and the night that changed their lives and their friendship.

Two Chicago cops played by Hugh Jackman and Daniel Craig.

Do you think I'll even blink?

Now you see why Kate wants to come along.

I sent her a clipping last week that said they are considering bringing it to London. So she may get a chance to see it there. Hope so.

In the meantime, I'lll be enjoying it on her behalf -- and anyone else who wants me to enjoy it on theirs as well.

When I get back we'll celebrate with a Hugh and Dan contest, so keep an eye out starting October 1st.

Sadly you won't win either Hugh or Dan, but you'll get a chance to win a couple of DVDs starring you know who and some good books and other treats.

Check back!

Those tickets are mine . . . Nancy the Cat Slayer really doesn't want to go to this production - she really doesn't. After all, it's hard work - hard research - and Nancy doesn't need to do research. She doesn't even have a book to write!

Now if I can just find a plane to NY . . .

Kate
(Have a wonderful time - but make sure you work really hard on the research!)

Dear Anne,

I'm breathless with excitement for you! Daniel and Hugh....so jealous I could weep. Please do a really loud squeal for me when the lights go down!

Lots of love,

Rach.

Hugh Jackman and Daniel Craig both on the same stage??? For goodness sake, if you manage to breathe let alone blink I'll be impressed!

Kate, I'm sure I will. The subject matter will be tricky. But watching two actors of that calibre (not to mention, er, appeal) will doubtless make up for it.

Rach, I'll do my best to squeal for you (discreetly).

Heidi, You're right about the breathing. What was I thinking?

Totally agree, Liz. Am in NYC right now -- relishing the day and looking forward to tomorrow.

Hi Taylor, It was a terrific play and Dan and Hugh turned it into a wonderful master class in acting. Lucky you to be going to see it next week!

Cheers,
Anne
