Quick Hits & Quotes

So I’m doing this Warrior Dash thing in July, and started my working out/training to get in shape for it.  My son, who is 11, is very excited about it, wants to be my trainer.  So, yesterday, some of my training involved jumping on the trampoline with him until I couldn’t take it anymore – and when I’d fall down and just lay there on the trampoline, he would stand over me and shout drill sergeant stuff like COME ON TUBBY!  DO YOU WANT THE NEIGHBORS TO SEE YOU LIKE THIS!?  IS THAT ALL YOU GOT?!  IS THIS ALL YOU ARE?!  DO YOU WANT THIS RACE OR NOT?!  DO YOU?!?!?!?  GET YOUR BUTT UP AND JUMP, MAN!!  MY MAMA COULD JUMP MORE THAN YOU!!  (Editor’s Note: this is technically true.  I know his mother, and he’s correct.)
Of course, the problem with this was that it made me laugh so hard I couldn’t really jump anymore.

Today we had a great event for the theatre, our Signature Society threw a get together.  They are the incredibly supportive group who give a good deal of money to the Williamston Theatre every year and help keep us alive.  It was a really wonderful chance to hang out and chat with a big chunk of the family that help to make the theatre what it is, and a nice reminder of how fortunate we are to be able to do what we do for a living. 

Speaking of the theatre, today we got some nice news:  The Lansing City Pulse announced the nominations for their annual Theatre Awards, and the Williamston Theatre received 20 Nominations!  We don’t do what we do for awards, but it’s always nice to be recognized and have folks say "Hey, we really enjoyed this!"  So congrats to all the WT Nominees, and to all the other nominees as well!

So my daughter, who is 13, said she’s saving up for a car.  Oh Lord…

And last, before I head to bed, a couple of quotes: 

"An opinion should be the result of thought, not a substitute for it."
Jeff Mallett

"Fight for your opinions, but do not believe they contain the whole truth, or the only truth."
Charles A. Dana

"Nothing exists except atoms and empty space; everything else is opinion."
Democritus, 460-370 BC
