Year One of The Empire
My blog has been a little bit DOLL obsessed since I started making dolls a couple of weeks ago. But I have been doing other things besides obsessively making two dolls a day. For example on Sunday, Jon and I went to see Year One Of The Empire at the Metropolitan Playhouse in the East Village. It's a three act play about America's occupation of the Phillipines at the turn of the 20th Century and it's a very good play. The venue is very intimate. The theater is one room with bleacher seating on three walls. My friend JM is in the show. I wanted to support her. And I felt comfortable doing so because the NY Times gave the show a good review. That doesn't happen often when going to shows to support friends. Oft times, whatever your friend is doing is JUST awful, unless of course you're friends with Harold Pinter or Beyonce for example. But you know what I mean. I recommend this play but hurry up and see it because it ends March 30. I still made a doll in case you were wondering.
I went Athena's Nails yesterday and got a manicure/pedicure from a sweet but sickly woman named Marisol who kept coughing on my toes. If you're a regular reader of this blog, you may recall previous rants against Athena's. As much as I hate some of their practices, they still provide the best manicures and pedicures in the neighborhood. My complaints have always involved their poor customer relations and long waiting times. But if you go early enough in the day you can avoid these problems. While my nails were drying, I took a couple of pictures of their nail tip samples. They are both strange and wonderful.
I still managed to make two dolls yesterday. I also made a chicken soup and roasted an delicious chicken.
