RIGHT NOW and for the next hour and a little bit more ('til 3pm), if you order in person or by phone (617-666-0000, the most stoner-friendly number ever) from Eat at Jumbo's in Ball Square, Somerville, 15% of your costs will go to the Post-Meridian Radio Players! Jumbo's is good food and their delivery range is far ("this side of the river," I was told when I ordered earlier.) Of course, most of you have probably already eaten... But hey! Why not get something early to put on ice for dinner? :D

Last night, I saw MIT's Musical Theater Group perform Jesus Christ Superstar. I had never seen any performance (including movie) of this musical before, and this was a damn good show. Judas will blow you away, Jesus is right behind him (...snerk), [livejournal.com profile] usernamenumber was a great Pilate, and DocGreg's Herod was...surprising. ;)

I really suggest you go. It's playing for one more weekend, and it's so worth the $15. http://web.mit.edu/mtg/www/TicketReservations.html

[livejournal.com profile] alexx_kay is an awesome friend and is treating me to a visit to Sleep No More on Thursday, December 10, at 7pm. I say this because you should also get tickets for then so we can decompress all together afterwards!

Alexx's first post slash review of the event is here and contains no spoilers. His second post, after thinking about the event for a few days, is here and doesn't contain spoilers as much as hints on how to enjoy the most of the event if you're sure you're only going to be able to go once. (It seems to be mutually agreed by all who have attended that you will want to go more than once.) It still might be more spoilery than some want, though, so be forewarned.

So buy tickets! Come along! Art!

A little under a month ago, [livejournal.com profile] queenortart (who I know via Intercon, but am not sure we've ever been face-to-face introduced) posted to [livejournal.com profile] interconlarp with a call for help. She was looking for NYC and Boston-area folks to help her surprise a pair of honeymooning friends with special gifts without spending an arm and a leg having the hotels do it.

I have a strong romantic streak and really really really really really really love surprises, and like making the world a place where this kind of thing happens (in the hopes that someday it will happen to me.) So I volunteered. Over the weekend, queenortart emailed me saying that Mr. and Mrs. X were in Y hotel in Boston, staying until Wednesday the 7th, my budget was $100-150, and they already received champagne and Godiva chocolates in NYC. Go crazy.

This email very, very nearly got lost in the shuffle of the past few days, which would have made me incredibly sad. Instead, when my tabletop game got canceled last night but I was trying to plan with [livejournal.com profile] zapf something else to do, my eyes fell on it and I realized I had only last night to enact this plan.

So huge ginormous thanks to [livejournal.com profile] zapf for driving me around last night. We hit up the Wine and Cheese Cask in Somerville, where I got all wide-eyed and clueless at the staff in return for a recommendation on a (rather expensive, to me) bottle of rosé and a triple-cream cheese to go along, with a couple different types of cracker. We tried Burdick's next in hopes of getting some chocolate-dipped $FRUIT, but it had JUST closed. :( Stopped by Target just to get a little wicker basket to lay everything in, and while I'm slightly ashamed of it, got a small amount of Hershey's Bliss chocolates (with melty raspberry center) just to scatter at the bottom of the basket. The final piece of the puzzle was a bunch of big fat red globe grapes from Shaw's. We arranged it all in the basket and headed off to the hotel. The front desk wouldn't give us the room number of Mr. and Mrs. X, which is fine because they instead offered to deliver our basket. We dashed off a quick note (I did not actually write, "Congratulations on your nuptials!" in fancy, flowy script like I wanted to) wishing them well from their anonymous Boston benefactors, stuck it in the basket, handed it off to the staff, and considered MISSION ACCOMPLISHED! I just really, really hope the hotel in fact delivered the basket!

I got monetarily paid back for all of that, plus queenortart might bring something special from England to Intercon for me this year. But the whole plan was more about paying it forward than getting paid back.

I was preparing to leave work and head home in the rain when [livejournal.com profile] crazybone, perhaps informed by [livejournal.com profile] hakamadare of my "what's anyone doing later tonight" tweet, called me up to invite me to dinner at Area 52, which was (due to whatever) actually going to occur late enough for me to make it there. So I joined [livejournal.com profile] chaiya, [livejournal.com profile] hakamadare, [livejournal.com profile] crazybone, [livejournal.com profile] noeltheone, [livejournal.com profile] civic_oracle, and two others I know first names of but not LJ names in eating a delicious dinner and talking about all sorts of things, often ending up in the scientists in the room swapping interesting chemical and medical and beyond-my-ken stories. I found it weird to be at a party wherein someone utters the phrase, "Oh, have I told you the phenylthaline story?" and [livejournal.com profile] londo wasn't there.

Then I found out that while I was offline, [livejournal.com profile] usernamenumber snuck into my house (he has keys from back when I moved in and needed someone nearby to let technicians in when they had to come set up phone lines and things), left me food from the Garden Grille, and found the package I thought I had completely lost to FedEx incompetence.

So basically this is a post to say my friends are awesome and I shouldn't forget this.

Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] zigdon for being the first second* person to ever actually buy something for me off of my Amazon wishlist! (My sister was inspired by the wishlist for Christmas, but bought local. I support this wholeheartedly.) Now I have a real live legal and paid-money-for-to-support-production-of copy of the Firefly DVD series. Yay geekdom!

And thank you to Mystery Man [livejournal.com profile] bkdelong for being the second person, and for going the hardcore route of gifting me the expensive thing on there - the Brazil Criterion Collection 3-disc box set. It contains the rare "happy ending" version!!

Now to find some free time to actually watch my new media... can I put that on my wishlist somehow?

* Bad, bad me - [livejournal.com profile] alexx_kay was of course the first to buy for me off the wishlist, with the USB-powered blanket that I was in fact using yesterday to keep warm in my frigid icebox office. :P
