^ I don't know if they look like that, but I understand that, in Japan, you can buy alcohol from vending machines on the street.

A friend and I went to the zoo a few weeks ago. Our new mutual friend:

About 10 minutes into this there's a brilliant vending machine bar as found in Japan...

I trimmed my Novembeard today, feeling a bit lighter albeit not as warm in the face area.

I was thinking specifically the "mix your own drink" aspect of it. So you could say pick a diet coke, with cherry and lime and bourbon or a half seltzer half tonic with vodka and lemon and have it all mixed in perfect proportion by the machine right into your glass. No bar tender to wave at or throng of people to fight through.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

My wife and I went to a little show yesterday.



The set:




Intermission. Note the old shoes in the spotlight. These are the shoes worn by Ian McKellen's character and placed there by him at the end of the first act.





After the show we waited near the actor's exit.

Billy Crudup (Dr. Manhattan in Watchmen).




Shuler Hensly.



My wife and I got separated while we were waiting, but here's a little selfie of me with a certain knight you might all recognize




By the time he go to my wife I was able to catch up with her and was able to snap this picture of my wife and Sir Ian.






Unfortunately, although he was the first one out the door, Patrick Stewart did not stop to sign autographs. It's really too bad because we would have had our Playbill signed by the whole cast if he had stopped. Plus I would have gotten to meet Patrick Stewart.

It was a bit of a bummer but it was still a great time.

Edited to add:

Here's a short clip from the curtain call. Don't worry, I wasn't so rude as to film during the performance!

Probably, since he died in 1989.
