“I’ve got the copies covered, no worries. I haven’t taken a look at the attached doc yet, but I’ll let you know what I’ve got as soon as I come up with some cuts/edits!
Also, OH MY GOD SHERLOCK. Love it, love it, love it! Stephen Moffat is my HERO. We’re definitely talking Reichenbach theories ASAP.””All right, this is what I’ve got. One major thing: I’m so sorry I wasn’t very clear– the sides are supposed to *total* a page in length, so I did some significant cutting (and possibly also a little creative margin work) on the showmanship passage. Also, the Powers that Be weren’t so keen on the idea of having to manage props in callbacks, so I think the origami/list bit is out. 😦
Second thing: one of the passages we picked last week got chewed up in my new draft, so I included both versions of the passage and figured it was your call which one is better suited to being callback material.
Third thing: Here’s how I figure this is going to work: one version of the sides will have passages A and B; the other will have A and C (depending on whether the actor showed more showmanship or defeated-ness already). If Lisa doesn’t want to deal with that, I can just print the copies.
Fourth thing: Dolphins shed an entire layer of skin every few hours.
Fifth thing: I have an exam from 3:30 to 5 in tech; I will be at University ASAP when I finish and ABSOLUTELY by 5!
Sixth thing: Yes, attached is a .doc. My version of Word is from 2004. Shut Up Shut Up I don’t like change!
Just wondering if there’s anything you can’t/don’t like to eat, and letting you know that I’m totally serious about having you over for dinner Thursday after tech!
See you tomorrow,
“Hey there, awkward ‘I don’t know who you are yet’ emails 🙂
Sometime soon: celebratory cider and movie night. Yes? Yes.”
Magic. Where is it in my life? So i watched the prestige on my last
night home. Then i read Dangerous Laughter on my flight home. Now i
don’t remembered what you said about millhauser but i think im in
love. Not only did he write the room in the attic ( a personal
favorite), but also eisenheim the illusionist and is just wonderful
and dark and magical and hysterical.
So what im trying to say is that i still havent seen Hugo. Movie night?
P.s. its been a long first day back”
YES. This needs to happen.
In other news, you probably don’t remember what I said about Millhauser because I didn’t know anything about Millhauser until I just wikipedia-ed him just now. And now I’m immensely intrigued. UGH and I was so proud of myself for nearly clearing out my entire to-read list over spring break… WHY IS THERE ALWAYS MORE?!
PS – I ran into Amanda Scherker (playwright of No Man’s Rabbi) today after she recently watched some documentary or other on Melies (the title of which she has promised to tell me as soon as she remembers what it is)… and she told me “WOW Emma I totally GET your PLAY now. And Melies — what a BUMMER life. I mean, like, TRAGIC.”
PPS – It’s been a long first week of classes. Wait — what did you say? It’s only halfway over? Wait, WHAT?!”Then the relationship happened. Man, those were sometimes.
