Elayna has been cast in The Shakespeare Project at school. She's one of the Kate Sisters, performing the wooing scene from Taming of the Shrew as a tag-team wrestling match.
They're also letting the kids insert other Shakespeare scenes as long as they can modernize them and keep the flow of the play - so she and her friend Emily will be doing Hermia and Helena's fight, set in a modern high school. Perfect.
Also, this weekend is the MIT Great Glass Pumpkin Patch - not that I can afford a pumpkin right now, but I like to look - and a party, and then on Sunday we'll be cleaning the basement living room finally (the basement is an in-law apartment), in preparation for omnisti's impending visit. Also because the mess makes me itch.
Remember to see if you can help people - also, there are job offers in that thread! - and go forth and compliment people!
