Picasso at the Lapin Agile

Wow, that was fun! Hours later, I am still buzzing.

20-something years ago, when I saw Picasso at the Lapin Agile at CanStage, I would never have dreamed that I would have the pleasure of playing Albert Einstein, especially in a cast with such talented actors and director.

Wednesday

Back in rehearsal for Picasso at the Lapin Agile. Later tonight I get to travel to Minnesota for Writing Circle led by one of my favourite poets, Neil Hilborn. We write, and share and gush and laugh into the late hours of the night.

My card of the day says, “My life works beautifully.” I guffawed when I saw it, but as the day progresses it is feeling more like it fits.

The package with the financial reward

So about two weeks ago, I got a phone call from a market research firm called Numeris. I like doing surveys and was disqualified for all the years I was with Brian because of his work. The guy asked if I received the package in the mail with a financial reward for participating. I had not and told him so. He said they would call back again in a week because mail has been delayed recently.

The next week, I get a call again. Same question about whether I received the package with the financial reward. I had not. He said that they would send another package with the financial reward and call again in a week.
Today I received the package and I was so excited and curious to see what the “financial reward” was. I opened the envelope and pulled out this:

And then I started howling with laughter, nearly falling off my chair.

Thanks for the laughs, Numeris. I’m looking forward to your next call.
