My new business cards for Indy Theatre Habit arrived in the mail today!
They look a little different from what I imagined when I filled out the online template, but I am still delighted. Now I will have something tidy to hand to people who ask me to repeat the name of my blog, rather than tearing off a corner from a theatre program and scribbling down the url.
I have another housekeeping chore that I am going to accomplish in this post: I am going to list all of the shows that I saw in 2007 with the names of their theatres, playwrights, directors, design team members, cast, and crew. This way, whenever I am trying to remember what other show I have seen someone in, I can use the “Search” thingie at the top of my blog theme to find out.
I am sorry that this makes for a somewhat long and boring post, but what can I say? The librarian in me insists upon it. Ultimately it will be a help to everyone, I think, so I ask your patience.
Also, I will not be able to complete this job before I have to leave for the theatre tonight. I am just going to get it started in order to lock it in place at this point in the blog. I will fill in the blanks over the next week or so, in between working at my day job and, of course, seeing and writing about more shows. Yay! More shows!
