#2 Mr. Crane and I went to A Klingon Christmas Carol and it was so fabulous! It's an adaptation of the Dickens take done entirely in tlhIngan Hol (the Klingon Language) with English supertitles - a "classic tale of ghosts and redemption was adapted to reflect the Warrior Code of Honor."
I was really impressed by how the Dickens tale translates to another culture, and works across values. The play was funny and touching, and super clever with the trekkie references and diction - full of just the kinds of stuff Klingons would say, and it didn't take itself too seriously. The Klingons were fab actors, and there was a wonderful Vulcan narrator (who incidentally, made me realize that Obama is a bit Vulcan-like, and I mean that in the best way). And, in parts the play was totally touching; in fact, a tear came to my eye when the ghost of Christmas future showed little Tim Tom's grieving mother holding his little battle weapon. Actually, I'm not being funny. Read more on my post here. Photo courtesy of Commedia Beauregard.
#3 My website is done! Well, actually, I'm still tweaking and adding to it - every day I think of three new things to do to it. But that will probably be the case until a sunspot lays waste to the electrical power grid or whatever it is that's supposed to happen. It's done enough. www.authorcarolyncrane.com
