The last few days have been busy, and it's really just the precursor to what's coming in the next month.
First, to all my fellow Cubs fans: JUST WAIT 'TIL NEXT YEAR! How in the WORLD one of the best teams of this season could blow it in the first round of playoffs is beyond me, but the curse lives on.
We are now twelve days until opening night of School House Rock Live - Gillian's show. She will be very busy with rehearsals this week, then the weekend off, then next week will be dress rehearsals and the show. I'm not at all involved with this one, so I really don't know how things are shaping up, other than the bits and pieces of rehearsals that I do see, but I think it's going to be a great production!
Next week, Wednesday - Friday, I will be at the Iowa Library Association's annual conference. It's in Dubuque this year. It's always a good event, and great to network with librarians from all over the state. It's just a little crazy this year, as Gillian will have dress rehearsals Wednesday and Thursday, but I won't be here. Dan will be taking her to those, and then I'll be home Friday afternoon, just in time for opening night!
This Friday, the 10th, I'm hosting an amazing program at the library. Duffy Hudson is a Broadway and film actor, and he does a one-man Edgar Allen Poe show. He's coming to perform the evening of the 10th, and I'm very excited!
So, last night, we went to see Kathy Griffin in concert. Of course, she was hilarious and irreverent and naughty, and it was a riot! She didn't make fun of Sarah Palin as much as we expected, but she spread her snarkiness far and wide so as not to leave many celebrities unscathed! We were home in time for Saturday Night Live, however, and whatever Kathy Griffin didn't mention about Sarah Palin, the cast of SNL, including Tina Fey, certainly did! Their mocking of the VP debate was fantastic!
Fall is slowly making its way to my part of Iowa. Some of the trees are starting to turn colors just a little bit, and many more trees are thinking about it. I hope to take some pictures and post in the next week or two. But, the weather is gorgeous - this is a great time of year to live in Iowa!
