Where did June go? Seagull review

Wow, was that June? I guess I should't complain: I was hardly here for it, so it was bound to sneak off while I wasn't looking. Between Copenhagen and Pitlochry I've been so busy travelling I've hardly managed to see any theater. Last theater trip was two weeks ago to the Arcola's Seagull, which went beyond the usual Russian play whinginess and into the realm of the Truly Fucked Up Family. As a bonus there was a Victorian Goth girl, wearing black to "mourn my life" (at 22 or so) in proper Morrisey style; how perfect!

Well, to be honest I went and saw Blink Twice at Above the Stag last night. I haven't written it up yet as my schedule of mostly 4 day weeks at work hasn't allowed for as much fooling around on the clock (what is this "working at work thing" about anyway?), but they did do a nice disco medley that included a song from "Saucy Jack and the Space Vixens," and their sendup of Umbrellas of Cherbourg (the musical) was so right on I wished the whole night had been Forbidden Broadway style rather than such straight versions of the songs. Maybe next year ...

I had this idea that come July 1 I was going to make some massive changes in my life, but I find myself with little appetite for major changes after my massive depression last October, even though I want to kick myself for approaching my life like a coward instead of like a field marshall. Still, as long as I'm making incremental changes, my life is progressing, but I want it to go like a lion and not so much like a lamb. Lamb seems too much like no change at all, and I worry that I'm not doing what I ought to to be where I want to be in three years because I'm afraid of how I'll deal with where I'll be in three months.
