I got the book. I wanted to find something new to read that didn’t really relate too much to my life. So a story about a 30 something dude and his ex-girlfriends is pretty unautobiographical, so meh, I went with it. Scott recommended it highly — especially if you want to know how guys think/work/etc… well, that is something I REALLY DON’T WANT TO KNOW, but I’m reading it anyway. I don’t think it will ruin my worldview entirely, but maybe. Nah, probably not. I think it’s easier to inhabit characters if there’s a book about’em so there.

Enjoy the frontloading of the blogposts now people while the bloom rose is still on the rose flower. I should be able to keep up as long as the posts are short, though!

I also am pretty stoked that I have 3 comments! I’m writing real provocative and didactic stuff here, there are arguments a’plenty already happening. Sorta!

Also, thanks to Scott for clueing me in that the whole #5 with a bullet isn’t about a guns and shooting, etc… b/c I was really confused, and now am a lil’ embarassed that I didn’t catch that from the script.


Finally – I can be a backup singer April 16, 2008

Hey fellow rock/musical enthusiasts, I’m Lori, I’m in High Fidelity, I play Sarah, and I’m pretty much really excited to:

1) be in a bona fide musical after a 3+ year hiatus…dang was it really that long since college..whoa.

2) get to sing backup on like, a lot of songs. I have always wanted to be a backup singer, and I will still want to be a back up singer when this whole “show” is said and done.

3) get to have Robin as my choreographer again! OMG that woman is a genius/changed my life for the better. My sister and I (we’ve both experienced The Robin Effect) talk about her whenever we’re together.

4) there are all these new people in the show and I don’t know them! whoa.

5) My character was played by Lili Taylor in the High Fidelity movie — I really loved her character in Say Anything (John Cusack connection, anyone?) singing “Joe Lies” and “That’ll Never Be Me,” so I’m feeling in really good brown-haired company.
