Five Things I Learned from Alexander, His Family and His Very Bad Day

Disclaimer:  If you haven't seen Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No-Good, Very Bad Day, don't read this yet! But do go see it. It's good!This weekend at an all-night movie lock-in for high schoolers, we got to see Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No-Good, Very Bad Day. Really, those adjectives are a bit of an understatement.  Their day was really crappy to say the least, but overall, they all survived and at the end of it, were still a good, solid, loving family. Really, that matters more than anything. ...more

O Cyrano, Cyrano, Wherefore Art Thou Cyrano?

Island Girl scored freebie tickets to Broadway's limited run production of "Cyrano de Bergerac" a couple of weeks ago and was kind enough to invite me to go along. The play stars the wonderful Kevin Kline and the lovely Jennifer Garner of "Alias" fame.
