  1. Re: what did you think…

    I liked it. I’m a sucker for time-travel, and like the lead actor (who played Verinus in HBO’s Rome).

  2. Re: what did you think…

    So glad to know someone else liked it, too! I wasn’t sure as it started, but as things started clicking into place, it really grew on me.

  3. 3. Dropped my plan to get a theater degree when I ran head-first in the cliquish hell that is the KU theater department.

    Yeah, this made me snort. Cause times don’t change, hence why I am no longer a Theater major. Please don’t tell someone who has already done professional live improv that she doesn’t know what she’s doing in her improv class because she *gasp* wants to make things up on the spot rather than rehearse every detail. Um, huh?

  4. That was the same sort of problem I had encountered — I had done professional improv, been doing paid equity work on stages all summer long, and still I had to deal with having to take “Intro” classes and not being cast in anything because I was a Freshman.
