A dear old friend of mine once said that only when you embraced your inherent dorkiness could you truly be cool. As life rolls on it resonates more. I've got a lot of dorkiness to embrace, so it takes a bit of time.
The Ministry of Flailing, Cavorting and Evil sent me this brilliant link. It reminded me of so many conversations in St Andrews, ranting and raving about substandard theatre and drinking more, utterly convinced of my and my friends' creative genius compared to the world at large. Yes it was arrogant and bitchy but it was done with conviction. And we acted on our convictions, having fun and making some great student theatre. But mostly having fun. And drinking quite a bit of beer in the Cellar.
I'm writing a play about the aftermath of student theatre at the moment. It's got an awesome title. I'm not going to tell you what it is yet though.
Embrace the dork. Go on, you know you want to.
