Went to the theatre with Leah last Wednesday to see Denzel Washington in Julius Caesar. Very disappointing performance. You can read about it more on Leah’s blog.
Got the second instalment of the promised bonus from work this Friday. About bloody time too since we’ve slaved our winter away for this piece of ultra exciting (not) tax software.
I also played our first game of softball at Central Park this Friday. Managed to get two real good hits of the ball, both to the outfield. The first one got caught out so I didn’t even make it to first base. The second one didn’t but I was too ambitious while my legs wasn’t obeying commands from my brain to sprint faster, so I got tagged out near second base. Then when I was fielding first base, I caught this fast ball from second base and tagged out a guy. Felt great when it all came together, which can be rare 🙂 I also took my camera with me but my sport photography instinct must have been on vacation as I was more concerned with watching my team’s action than taking photos of it!
This afternoon (opps, yesterday afternoon) Leah and I went to a free taping of a HBO comedy show called ‘One Night Stand’ at NYU. Ok performance from Caroline Rea and acceptable from Omid Djalili. We’ve seen Omid Djalili before last year at the West Beth Theatre so many of his jokes are not new to us. One interesting thing though, why does people has the compulsive desire to give standing ovation? Isn’t standing ovation reserves for the exceptional performance? Or is this, as Leah calls it, an American Idol thing where everyone should get a standing ovation so they won’t feel left out? I am all for fairness in life but this borders on delusional for the performer. Anyway, so we may be on TV sometimes this summer around June/July, even for a briefest moment. Surely this must be a slightly longer appearance than the one my friend Paul and I made on Canadian’s equivalent of MTV last summer when the camera paned very quickly over our heads as we watched from the street.
Was going to play tennis tomorrow in Jersey City but the rain and a late night Halo gaming put pay to that…
