When I first moved in my apartment, five and a half years ago, my landlord immediately started talking about converting my front hallway into a porch. If you've visited me, you've walked through it--a small cruddy area that leads to my actual front door to the left and a Mystery door that I don't let people go through under any circumstances that lead to a walled off Room of Clutter. Since then, she has talked about it a lot, like every year, but nothing ever seems to happen. And as the years went on, the walled-off half of that area became a vast repository for Things I Do Not Want to Deal with Just Now.

Apparently she is serious this time, since she has actually brought a contractor in who is doing actual work on the area. Last weekend, noting an actual possibility that something like this was truly happening, I spent much time clearing out nearly all of the stuff that had accumulated in that area since 1999, which if you know me, you can imagine it must have been a lot. And it was. Tuesday, the work began, and yesterday, I came home to find that the dividing wall between hallway and Late Storage Area had been torn down. The outer wall has been pretty much decimated in order to make room for some large storm windows that will be going in within the next couple of weeks. And it looks promising--this could be a really cool place to hang out come this summer, when it is ready.

Bat Boy: The Musical closes this weekend, after which I will probably not appear on stage until September at the earliest. Everybody who has seen it so far has loved it. Nobody who has seen it has made nearly so much fuss as I do about...um...the liberties. Last weekend, we had our first sold-out house, and I have no doubt that that trend will continue this weekend, so if you want to see the show, and you've not made reservations, for God's sake go here or call (608) 661-9696 x3.

bellanotsoblu, sueg, littleevening, and groucho_z, this does not apply to you; I think I've told you that I already made reservations for you, and I did not lie. And I know that fountainal has already made arrangements of his own. If you would like to join that particular group of revelers, let me know...

Speaking of littleevening and groucho_z, there was a very enjoyable poker night at their house last night, including such luminaries as fountainal and angryclown. This game had the novelty of groucho_z sitting out the games altogether and hosting a "Loser's Lounge" downstairs. Arguments are still being weighed on whether it was more fun to play cards or lose all your chips so you could hang out with groucho_z. To be fair, more laughter was heard eminating from downstairs than from the dining room.

Still, I am not terribly sorry that I finished in the money both games.

I can't wait to see the new and improved Chez dampha!

I'm looking forward to seeing Bat Boy!

Yes, Poker last night was fun, even though I was one of the earlier visitors to the Losers' Lounge in both games.
