i should have asked my two facebook friends to shop with me. because i am invited to be on a new talk show and have been instructed to wear a bright color, no prints. i opened my closet sunday morning and there was a black dress, and another, and another, punctuated by an occasional black skirt. i think i have been in mourning for my life.
instead of shopping, i went to a brunch at vinci’s on halsted street, right next to the steppenwolf theater. after brunch was a performance of clybourne park. the play is about what happens when the first black family moves into a home in an all white neighborhood and what happens twenty years later when the first white couple proposes to move into the same home. i believed f2fb friend #210 lynn sanders would enjoy the brunch and the play particularly since the playwright bruce norris would stop in at the brunch and say a few words.
the brunch wasn’t my doing. it was organized by f2fb friend #211 nabil foster, who is a fellow northwestern law school alum and a partner in a law firm.
unfortunately, lynn wasn’t feeling well and we ended up coming home before the play was performed. at least she got a chance to speak with the playwright as well as the artistic director of steppenwolf. if you want tickets to the play, here’s a link:
tomorrow, i will write about the taping. the producer from the show promised me a surprise. i hope it’s not a snake!
two thirds of the way through this project and this year–it’s time for me to think about what next year’s resolution will be. to try to lose five pounds? puh-leeze. nothing is worth doing if it at first does not appear to be impossible.
what’s your new year’s eve resolution going to be???
