French Comedy

No, not Jerry Lewis. That's comedy that the French like. (Sorry, Charlie.)

Instead, daisy_knotwise and I went to Chicago's City Lit Theater this afternoon along with Jerry, Sam, and Bonnie to see their adaptation of two one-act plays by Moliere, "The Doctor In Spite of Himself" and "The Pretentious Young Ladies". The tickets were a Christmas gift from Sam and Bonnie which worked out quite nicely.

The first bit was, I think, stronger than the second, propelled by the lead actor whose performance reminded me of Jackie Gleason. The second bit was still funny, costumed in 21st century funky and really, really frightening at times.

Afterwards, we grabbed dinner at Gulliver's and headed home. If we're really lucky, we'll start addressing Christmas cards tonight.

  • Reporting In

    Gretchen and I went to the doctor for a fasting blood draw this morning. We'll see how the results are. This afternoon, Gretchen went *back* in that…

  • Steps

    Today is better than yesterday. Still short on solutions, but maybe I can get some time to sort things out. Thanks, folks.

  • Well, That Escalated Quickly

    Today could have been better. Much better.
