  1. I want to come to your costume party.

    Come to the Boulder Fringe Festival. Just missed this year's, it ran at the end of August.

    And let me know if you need an interpreter on your trip through South America, especially if you're planning on going to Machu Pichu.

    Re 17- I like it! I'm impressed at the variety. Keep it up...

  4. I think you'd be a great partner for Sundance. You're welcome anytime you want to come. I will warn you. There's no sleep if you go with me. I go full-tilt, balls to the wall, for the full ten days. Last year I saw 42 films. AND...I was going to WORK in between. Crazy.

    I also adored TRIBECA and will be coming back. So if you want to go, I'll be your film festival partner in crime.

    And Edinburgh. Sigh. I need to go back. Yes, please.

    p.s. how awesome to bring a show to the NY Fringe?! now that? totally fab.

  5. i love the new site. i think it's brilliant. i am encouraged to make my own list...right now it's just so daunting.
