  • Wow. @KBOO is wacky late at night. #
  • Oh. Duh. I don't know why I didn't think of using Textpander. It's so much quicker than switching from document to for frequent clips. #
  • And, my package arrived in the mail, but it wasn't enough to distract me from my new project. I've been going 10 hours so far today … #
  • Okay, theatre peeps, it's quiz time! Which gel was it that we used all the time at LCC so we looked good without stage makeup? #

  • @royalbananafish That 'bastard' is a No. 4 gel, by damn. And, it looks about right! You rock. in reply to royalbananafish #
  • @royalbananafish Oh, I don't doubt your wisdom, strength or beauty. I'm just wondering if it's _exactly_ the same as the one we used at LCC. in reply to royalbananafish #
  • @royalbananafish You know, for some value of "exact" which matches the memory of someone that remembers better than I … in reply to royalbananafish #
  • Greg Pattillo beatboxing the theme to Sesame Street … on a flute! On a flute! Sesame Street! http://bit.ly/XH8yk #
  • So, a wiki is actually more like an intertext than hypertext. Or, social media is intertext. #
