Thrown (Ţâpat) in , , ,

Am avut un week-end destul de plin, si ca de obicei, mi-au iesit numai 30% din chestiile pe care mi le-am dorit.

Trec asadar in revista / blog tot ce s-a-ntamplat, inclusiv chestiile care-as fi vrut sa se-ntample dar nu s-au. Deci tot ce mi-a facut cu okiu’.


DavidBoycePrima, fostul meu prof de improv, David Boyce, se producea cu trupa sa la Comedy on Danforth - Timothy's World News Café la 9pm. Alterneaza reprezentatiile cu o alta trupa, dar vinerea trecuta era a lui, Better Than Nothing. El e un tip nu tocmai inalt, gras si cu chelie, gen Arhi. Atata doar ca-i mai in varsta si are ochi albastri. Pe vremea cand luam cursul sau, venea la colegiu calare pe bicicleta, pe care-o aducea in clasa. Cand ma produceam in fata clasei, el radea cel mai cu pofta la poantele mele, poate fiindca si chiar se prindea la toate. Si daca ConD nu se poate, exista intotdeauna Bad Dog Theatre, unde se-ntampla intotdeauna improv.

A doua, CINSSU a aratat Children of Men cu scenaristul in audienta, care ar fi luat si Q&A la sfarsit, 7-10pm. Astazi arata si Adventureland, un advance screening pentru un film care va avea general release abia pe 3 Aprilie.

A treia ar fi fost lectiile de Swing / Lindy Hop care se-ntampla aproape in fiecare Vineri, dar nu si asta care a trecut. Da’ nu-i nimic, c-or sa mai vina.

Pan-la urma, am renuntat la toate optiunile de mai sus si m-am intalnit cu niste preteni la Future Bakery, de unde am mers la BierMarkt. Am stat nitel acolo, apoi mi-am abandonat prietenii si-am plecat insotit la Reservoir Lounge, unde se producea Jake Rude & His Swing Sextet. Unde a fost superb. Atata doar ca eu mi-am lasat accesoriile de paparazzi, inclusiv telefonul mobil, in masina unui prieten, cu care n-am mai reusit sa ma intalnesc in seara respectiva.


Un prieten foarte – foarte vechi si-a celebrat ziua de nastere cu urmatoarea invitatie:

Hello boys and girls, this is not spam, believe it or not you know me, please read to the end,
considering that the tilt of the Earth's axis is inclined neither away from nor towards the Sun, the Sun being vertically above a point on the Equator on the Vernal Equinox or more precisely the length of day is exactly the same as the length of night, and me being such a balanced person, I've decided to throw a belated birthday party for myself this upcoming weekend. So, you are cordially invited to bring your distinguished satelliting presence in direct orbit with mine, the Helios, to celebrate my reaching of the spring of my life, or fail that, just spring in general... ;)
Date: Sat, March 21, 2009 just in time for the vernal equinox (check it out if you don't believe me)
Time: eh, anytime after 8ish sounds good, but after about 11PM I may no longer be able to recognize you or speak any human languages
Dress-code: as long as you come dressed and plan on dancing a bit, it's all good
Amenities: a roof over our head, a balcony and not much seating space. What more could you ask for? Oh yeah, booze and some finger foods on the house. BTW if you are picky about your music bring it along as the Internet connection is rather slow and my aging tastes in music may have not kept up with the latest and greatest. Abba anyone? :)
Location: --. Nearest subway is at Yonge and Eglinton about a 15min walk away and there are buses running all night along Yonge St. For those of you driving there is free parking on the street and also on Keewatin Ave. Google and you shall find!
Please let me know if you'd be able to homologate attending this spacial encounter of the 33rd degree, or you're just crashing and burning astray along another path through the Universe,
Muchas gracias,

Inainte sa ma duc la ziua prietenului meu a trebuit sa ma-ntalnesc cu prietenul unde-mi uitasem poseta. Care, din pacate, si-a luxat piciorul jogging. Mai bine zis, nu facand jogging ci incalzindu-se, si nu l-a luxat ci aproape si-a rupt muschiul. Dupa cum este stiut, nu faci incalzire (stretching) inainte de jogging, dar el era c-o tipa care i-a pus pe toti sa faca asta, si fiind un om de treaba, n-a refuzat-o.

Este complicat sa explic unde am petrecut noaptea de sambata, asa ca nici nu-ncerc. Iata insa cam ce alte evenimente ma mai asteapta primavara asta:
