The time has come again. Tomorrow night I’ll be doing my third annual performance of “A Christmas Carol in Prose, Being a Ghost Story of Christmas”, by Charles Dickens. It takes about 3 hours, including brief breaks between the staves, and I’m expecting about 8 people to show up. At least, that’s how many people have told me that they are coming. Others have indicated that they might, so hopefully they won’t show up 15 minutes into the reading.
I’m rather less prepared that I was last year – there’s a lot more going on in my life now than there was this time last year, and I still haven’t unpacked from my trip last weekend. But I think it will be enormously enjoyable. At least, for me. And, after all, this event is for me. I just let people show up so that I can have an audience. 🙂
Somewhere, there is a DVD iso image of last year’s performance. I don’t know where it is, or if I even have a copy, but I know Skippy has a copy somewhere. And there are mp3s of last year’s performance too. I’m pretty sure that the story will turn out the same way it did last year, so if you want to attend virtually, you can listen along, starting at 6:30pm Eastern time.
Yes, I know it’s not Christmas. Christmas was even more hectic than this month, and so I postponed a few weeks.
