family plug alert!

Last night leedy and I went to see our sister Planet of the Apes (not her real name, you may be surprised to hear) make her stage debut in an adaptation of Dario Fo's Can't Pay? Won't Pay! with the action moved from 1970s Italy to early '80s Dublin. And to our vague amazement, she was fantastic. Seriously, she stole the show. And the show - about a bunch of working class Dubliners who take matters into their own hands when food prices rise - was very, very funny. It's on until Saturday in the theatre at the Teacher's Club on Parnell Square, just across from the Rotunda, and I strongly recommend it. You can see photos of Planet in action here (she's the tall one in the spotted shirt and jeans with the big, big hair).

I saw a reference to you on leedy's journal and I just wanted to ask, is your username a mention to Greg Bear's books "Darwin's Radio" and "Darwin's Children"?

No, not at all! I've never heard of either book, I'm afraid.

Ah, you should check them out. :) One of the main characters is named Stella Nova. I won't go into more detail than that because it would involve spoilers and they're great books. :) Darwin's Radio is the first one and the other is the sequel.

Off the point, but well done with Tubs Ryebready this morning. His voice every morning, where Marian's should be, sets my blood a boiling far too early. Nice one for reminding him that he's a real live homophobe. Must stop or I'll end up ranting, that's just what he wants...

Thanks very much! I did my best in the face of pure muppetry.
