Hi, everybody!

There's a lot going on right now. I just got back from a brief (made briefer by the absolute incompetence and unfriendliness of United Airlines) vacation in Chicago, about which I'll need to post - or perhaps I can just work all of it into one of the many, many New Girl fics I'll be writing this summer.

One of those fics might be for this multifandom shindig to benefit Syria! The fandom auction is being run by the completely awesome kate_lear, which means we're in good hands, and includes a requests post, a chance to collaborate with other fans, and more. Go, join in the fun!

I still need to make a theater post, but I've got a show on Thursday that I want to include, so after that I should get cracking on it.

And the glory in my icon is Rafael Nadal kicking up the red clay of Paris as he won his eighth (!!!) French Open title. It is so good to have him back, elevating the sport and the level of excitement in men's tennis. All hail Rafa!

I hope you're all doing well! Any exciting news to share?

LOVE that icon. I squealed when he won the semi's and then was just so thrilled when he won the finals. He's so magnificent. It's so damn good to have him back. As much as I love Roger and some of the other players, I find tennis more dull when Rafa's not around ;)

Mind you I'm hoping Fognini continues to improve his game. What a pretty boy to watch :)

I actually haven't been able to see much of the play - no cable and no access to online viewings from work - so what I end up doing is watching the scoreboards live, which is agonizing! I wish more tennis were on network TV!

I watch the live scoreboards too at work and I agree, it's agonizing! I tried to listen to the audio one day during the French while at work (wouldn't feel comfortable streaming video coverage) but the buffering was painful so ended up closing out and resorting to the scoreboards.

His draw for Wimbledon is just awful, especially compared to Novak's. I so hope Rafa can make it to the final again ::crosses fingers and toes::

I had everything crossed too, but it just didn't work! Now I just want him to rest up for the US Open, because I'm getting tickets to that.

Yeah and draw wasn't even a factor this time aside from him playing a good grass-court player. I was watching the scores at work starting toward the end of the second set and was just flabbergasted. Here's hoping his knee holds up and he doesn't punish it too badly as they swing into hardcourt season.

I so hope you get to see him in NY ::fingers crossed::

Sorry United Airlines cut your holiday short - sounds like an unpleasant experience! I hope it didn't ruin the trip!

Is the Thursday show by any chance Kinky Boots? I'm you told me when you were going, but I seem to be flaking out on anything that isn't essential to remember at the moment! If it is, give Stark Sands an extra clap from me, just for the guts to wear boxer shorts and five inch stiletto boots!

I saw Kinky Boots a few weeks ago and enjoyed it tremendously - I did give Stark Sands an extra round of applause and cheering on your behalf. Tonight's show featured his erstwhile castmate - Rebecca Naomi Jones - who was fantastic in Murder Ballad. I owe you an email, and will send one this weekend.
