Thanks for all the words of encouragement and support regarding my last post. I honestly wasn't trying to be such a sad sack. Actually, I kind of thought it was one of my more lighthearted posts! Clinton and Stacy? Self diagnosed hypochondria? C'mon, that's funny shit! No?
Things are not bad... just stressful... it'll all work itself out. In fact, this week I'll have my review at work during which I will learn the amount of my 2006 bonus AND my 2007 raise. It's going to be a good review so I am expecting larger than average numbers. I've also FINALLY made my appointment to have my taxes done, and it's virtually impossible that I won't get a decent refund. So the pressure valve will be released a little... at least financially.
In other news, P and I saw a cute play over the weekend. The Horizon Theatre Company is staging a production of Almost, Maine. Very small, very cute little series of vignettes set on a winter's night under the northern lights in the little, rural, fictitious town of Almost, Maine. Think "Northern Exposure" meets "Men in Trees." Only 4 actors (2 men, two women), all playing several different characters throughout the course of the show. Very small theater which sometimes makes me uncomfortable: Small Theater + Bad Play/Bad Actors = Uncomfortable Condoblogger. All the actors in this show were really quite good though, and I even liked the very simple stage.
Only problems were with our fellow audience members. Open mouth gum chewer to our right and bluetooth headset blinking LED in front of us.
Oh, speaking of entertainment, have y'all seen "The Sarah Silverman Program" on Comedy Central? Good TV in my opinion. NOT FOR THE KIDS and NOT FOR THE EASILY OFFENDED, but if you are an adult who can take a joke about ANYTHING (abortion, homelessness, addiction, lesbians) I think you'll enjoy it.
