I’m not totally easy. Actually, I’m not easy at all. I’m very picky. Just ask my buddy Jenni. She had to work seriously hard to talk me into going to see a production of Taming of the Shrew once. You see, Shrew is a wonderful play which is also now in the category of “It had better do XWandZ to me or I refuse to subject myself to it again.” I’ve seen it too often. I was in it as Kate for 4 years, for crying in your soup. Well, she arm-twisted me into seeing it at Milwaukee Shakes and I was happy she did. But, boy did they have a personal mental hurdle to overcome.
I love The Tempest. Angela jokes at me that I’m easy. I joke back that, Yes I could be a paid professional shill. It’s all true. When I love something, I love it all the way. Once something earns my love, that is. I don’t give it away. But once I give it, there’s no holding back.
So, even clock-watching, check-listing, laptop-trolls have passion.

Update… Right now, my passion takes the form of a great attitude and a strict adherence to the lists in front of me.
