  • @ingenthr you’re in the wrong city! in reply to ingenthr #
  • @pizzocalabro don’t worry, Pratchett is an avowed atheist. in reply to pizzocalabro #

  • got a travel-sized white noise machine, because we both snore these days. That plus ear plugs, maybe we’ll both get some sleep! #
  • @pizzocalabro yes, loved it, though I enjoy Discworld more for pure escapism (though it’s rather more than that, too). in reply to pizzocalabro #
  • http://johncleesenigerianlottery.co.uk/ “an understandable reaction to the talent, intelligence & height that is John Cleese.” RT@JohnCleese #
  • NB: John Cleese really is tall. My 6’3″ dad stood next to him at Heathrow once and had to look up, for once in his life. #
  • still feel like crap. On the upside, Enrico should arrive soon, and we have tickets to Wicked tonight – 20th anniversary celebration! #
  • @nonstick earplugs or no, I have rarely slept really well since last trimester of pregnancy, 20 years ago. in reply to nonstick #
  • @nonstick thanks. We get to celebrate twice – had a civil wedding in January, party wedding in May. in reply to nonstick #
  • glad I was able to enjoy the renaissance of Disney when Ross was small, but also that we missed out on the “Princesses” phase. #
  • @danilop congratulations! in reply to danilop #
  • @MissExpatria ? Wicked didn’t exist 20 years ago, are you thinking of Into the Woods? We did see that just about exactly 20 years ago in reply to lskrocki #

  • @shawnferry the masked lawnmower man? rides into the suburbs and rescues innocent people from weeds! #
  • About time to take our seats. Excited. I love musical theater! #
  • Wicked was pretty much as good as I had hoped, but the ending was a shock. (I read the book when it first came out, long before the show.) #
  • @shawnferry white noise machine is a small, standalone electronic machine. Prob with recordings is they loop and you hear it. This doesn’t. in reply to shawnferry #
  • @silverguru stop by and see us on the OpenSolaris tracks too! in reply to silverguru #
  • have a feeling I’m going to be amazed by how many Sun people I meet this week that I actually already know. I lose track of my own travels. #
  • @missbhavens I think your garden needs a plaster Michelangelo’s David that you can dress up according to season in reply to missbhavens #
  • @dave_enz argh! no! I had enough of that in Colorado already. #snowing #Wellington I’m getting this hemispheres thing all wrong, apparently in reply to dave_enz #
  • @ajkeen Italians are amazingly non-digital. It’s very possible the photog didn’t have backups. Doh! in reply to ajkeen #
  • spent much of 1st act of Wicked trying not to cough. Discovered that whiskey after cough drops tastes really foul. But it stopped the cough #
