I have been invited to watch one of the football world cup quarter final matches next Friday lunchtime at the house of one of my colleagues. I have absolutely no interest in football but on the other hand I am flattered to have been asked and it might be fun to hang out for a while with the guys eating pizza and drinking beer.

I am torn between listening to the voice in my head that says "life's too short to spend doing stuff you're not interested in" and the other voice that says "go and do something new - it might be fun".

If it was the final and England were in it I think I'd definitely go, but as neither of those things are true I'm less sure. I will leave it up to you, my readers, to tell me what I should do.

Mongol Rally

From that perennial source of entertainment, the Welcombe Village News:

3 people were banned from Turkmenistan for a year. 1 person was detained by police in Azerbaijan and threatened with a beating from a dwarf. This followed an incident with a cow.

Those guys really know how to have a good time.

Cash on Delivery!

Wednesday, June 7th, 2006

I'm coming out of blog hibernation briefly to plug the show that I'm in (which starts on Friday). It's a hilarious and fast moving farcical comedy called "Cash on Delivery". I hope all my Seattle-area friends will be able to come and see it (though those that do might never see me in quite the same way again...)

Where? Seattle Center House, Theater 4 (on the 4th floor)

When? 7:30pm on 9th, 10th and 13th-17th of June, 2pm on the 11th of June.

Who? Next Step Theater

How much? $10.

No, I meant how much will I laugh? Oh, I see. Lots. It'll probably hurt you'll be laughing so much. But in a good way.

How (to get tickets)? On the web at or by phone at 1-800-838-3006.
