She Kills Monsters [May. 16th, 2015|12:16 am]
We went and saw a play tonight with Douglas: She Kills Monster at the Aurora Fox. It's about a non-geeky young woman getting to know her deceased 15-year old sister by playing a D&D module the sister wrote. We enjoyed it.

It's a good story -- though a little cringe-y to watch at times because there's a lot of naked adolescent id on display (some of it in the audience) -- but it takes some cool turns, and it actually made me choke up a bit near the end. The production was good all around, and some of the monster costumes were downright excellent. It closes tomorrow, so I feel like it's not a spoiler to tell you that there was a beholder done with footie pajamas that brought the house down. And it was funny. Quite funny.

Walking back to the car afterward, we came across a tiny baby bunny in the road who had a hurt paw and was having difficulty hopping. I was able to pick it up, and we took it to the nearest place we could find that had grass for eating and tall grass for hiding in. I don't know that it'll make it, but I figure it has a better chance there than it did in the road. So today I learned that baby bunnies are amazingly super-duper soft. Good luck, little bun-bun!
