krazy kat

All the world's a.... GARBAGE CAN! Yeah! That's it! And all its people merely banana peels.

...or something...

Trying to start up a Drama Society here at AUS. The first meeting has been an unmitigated disaster. We spent the last month or so going arround and finding out who was interested. And went to all this effort to find a time when pretty much everyone was free. And out of 25 or so people, we had a total attendance of 4.


And to top it all off, most of the meeting was spent bickering over whether or not we should put on a play written by one of the students here (who does not, I might add, speak English as a first language; it's obvious the play was originally written in Arabic, and then translated -- poorly -- into English). This as opposed to getting a "real" play from the library or off the net (several samples of which were brought to the meeting).

Besides which, this homegrown play requires 10 actors. Which we most emphatically do not have.

But still they argue.

O well... maybe someday this garbage can will actually fly.
