What happens when former best friends get back in touch... :)  
If you've been on my friends list for a while, you'll remember this post about my best friend and former roommate in college and how I was saddened that we'd drifted apart over the years before attending her wedding in 2006...

Well, amazingly, out of the blue, I got an email from her the other day suggesting that we go out for lunch next week! :) I truly haven't seen her since her wedding, nor have I seen her in the 5 or so years leading up to her wedding. It was SO nice to hear from her and it'll be SO great to see her!! :)

I have to admit that I am a little apprehensive about it, just because so much time has passed... I know we're not the same people we were in college - far from it actually... But my hope is that we'll be able to build a different friendship, based on who we are right now... Our lunch is next week Thursday, if you can, please think good thoughts that things go well.

On an LA theatre note, I wish the Rubicon wasn't so FAR away from LA! :( I would give anything to be able to work this show into my July theatre trip!! It's been FOREVER since I've seen David Burnham on stage. :(

Doing the weekend (no vacation) theatre trip again in late July... So far, this is my tentative theatre schedule for that trip... If anyone is in the area and would like to meet up for one of these shows, please let me know - I'd love to see you!

Saturday, July 25th (mat): Little Shop of Horrors at MTW (to see Lowe) :)
Saturday, July 25th (eve): The Andrews Brothers at Fullerton CLO (to see Bets)

If I had even ONE more day in LA, I'd head over to the Rubicon to see David's show! :( Drat. lindasings, I envy you!! :)

Speaking of which, my favorite straight play of all time - "Trying" - will be playing there over the Labor Day weekend! :) Not sure if I want to try to fight the Labor day travel rush to fly out to see it... but it could be SO worth it!! No Alan Mandel, but I still adore the show and would love to see another variation of it...

Finally, I've been hearing such great things about Violet last night. I really wish I could've stayed in LA just one more day this time to see it... Hoping there's at least one MTG show that I can make it down to next season... :(

I'm excited for your theatre trip already - I'm eager to find out more about Andrews Brothers. It'll be amazing to have Bets doing a new show. :)

Good thoughts for that lunch with your friend, definitely!

Andrews Brothers is another Roger Bean show and it played for a while at MTW some years ago. I'm really excited that Bets will be back on the West Coast!

Thanks for the good wishes for my lunch!

Without getting too heavy on her, I think you have the right to ask 'what gives" with this bungee chord friendship.

Part of it was my fault... we just tended to drift apart while she was away at med school. By the time I saw her at her wedding, it was like I didn't even know her. She and I have been trying to get together for some time now and hopefully this lunch can be a new beginning of sorts. Thanks for your comment.
