From: Alycee Absess, Assistant Head of Theatrical Productions
I just got back from Spartanburg, South Carolina, where I was directing a really exciting production of Annie—we got Norman D. Golden II, the kid from Cop and a Half, and a really nice notice in the Herald-Journal that asked “Why is a 34-year-old black man playing a red-haired orphan girl?” But all six people in the audience really enjoyed it, except for the four people who brought torches but couldn’t get their lighters to work to ignite them.
While I was traveling back to Karismatiq Omnicorp, my very good friend Chadwick St. Malore from Karismatiq Omnicorp Filmworks texted me a photo. It was an amazing multi-tiered Hungarian Dobos torte in the shape of Dolly Parton that he picked up in a five-star cukrászda that he managed to find in Siem Reap, Cambodia, while scouting locations for Karismatiq Omnicorp’s newest film production, Linda-Sue Hoggreaser: Princess at Large. He said he was planning to ship it home to share in the break room.
I thought that was really neat and generous, but down in TP, we love being super-generous too, because we love everyone we work with, and we REALLY want you to love us too. So I figured I’d bring something in as well.
On the way home from the bus depot I was kicked off the city bus for nonpayment because my card started fizzing in the reader, but that turned out to be really lucky, because I happened to be just outside Captain Garbanzo’s Day-Old Discount Baked Goods on 49thStreet. Captain Garbanzo’s can be a bit pricey, though, so I ran around to the back and talked to the guy living in the Dumpster. He hooked me up with these assorted mini brownies that were two whole dollars off!
I hope you all love them as much as I love you. Please, please, please, please, please love them. Please.
