Watch Me Entertain Myself!

Sacha Guitry once said, "You can pretend to be serious, but you can't pretend to be witty." Oh yes, I'm the great pretender.

Move Over, Lovapalooza!

Tomorrow is the time of the year again, when red is the color and heart is the shape. And like (most) every year, I will spend it with the single guys and gals in TA.

We started this tradition more than five years ago, when we realized after a Feb. 14 performance of “Macbeth” that the couples in TA were excitedly flying off to their dates, leaving us singles behind. So we thought, “Why not we singles have a group date?” Through the years the TA couples, jealous that the singles were having fun—and free pizza, thanks to the TA alumni—during Valentine’s, managed to invite themselves over; we generous singles welcomed them with open arms.

Well, this year we decided to make it exclusively for-singles once again. We’re going to a member’s house after dinner, and we’re going to pile up the beer, chips and pizza. We’re going to have an “all about love” group counseling session, and we’re calling it “LOVE-A-PADUSA?” It looks like I’ll be playing Joe D’Mango for the night, since I suspect I’ll be the oldest one there. I promise to rein in my inner cynic and espouse the true, the good and the beautiful about love. Okay, maybe just the true. Or at least what I know is true—for the moment.

This is gonna be fun. Ehehehehe.

NELZ: Notice the question mark that's part of the title? We want to keep it an open-ended question. :-)
