Question by DCLoneyBoy: Any Single, Shakespeare-loving ladies in the Washington DC area free next Friday?
I’m going with some friends to see the DC Shakespeare Company’s production of King Lear next Friday, and we have an extra ticket, so I’d love to take along a fellow enthusiast.
About me: 27, swm, and as you may have guessed, very much a literature/theatre buff. I wrote and directed my own show in college and I once played Hamlet on the Globe in London (you’ll have to message me for that story.) I’m currently working on a documentary film and what I hope will be my first published novel. I’m what you might expect int he “Artistic type” creative, intellectual, left-wing, spiritual-not-religious. My favorite pastimes include reading good fiction or non-fiction, bowling, card games, amusement parks, driving around with no agenda and karaoke (bonus points if you’ll sing with me.)
If you’re interested in the same things and would like to see one of the greatest works in the English language, drop me a line.

Where did you come from?
The young women, say the Gen-Y types, are too busy dying their hair black, playing with there cell phones, or buying some really really cool Pink clothes at the mal.
The Gen-X types are out spending more money on shoes and cars and other stuff that they really can’t afford, but simply must have to rationalize their very existence on this planet.
The Baby Boomers are sitting at home, wondering where they went wrong in marrying their husbands (or, why they never found the right man to marry).
About the only women of intelligence and class are the ones that were born before 1940. But, they are busy working another job whilest semi-retired, so they can support their ungrateful kids that are busy spending money they don’t have.
We live in a society of well trained (by Madison Avenue) consumers that place very little value on anything like arts and literature.
