Slugs & sex. Icky.... Like seriously icky. Fascinating, all the same. lol. But I figured some of you might enjoy it. ;)

Trying to live in Paris on $4 a day, Greg Kotis slept on park benches and often had to choose between eating and using the city's pay urinals. One rainy afternoon while making such a choice ( He chose food), a thought occured to him: What if a single evil corporation-- The Urine Good Company -- controlled all of the pay urinals in a city? "I just stood there maybe fifteen minutes. In the rain. Thinking it out." he says. Inspired he wrote a show called Urinetown The Musical. After a sold out off-Broadway run it opened on the Great White Way in Spetember 2001. Highlight: A song called "It's a Privilige To Pee."

And I recommend Urientown for everyone. It's amazing. :) Run Freedom Run is my favorite song. :)

( Oh, and I have an interview today. Don't want to jinx myself and say for what, but good vibes and crossed fingers would be super appreciated.)

It is great. I got to see it on Broadway and didn't even really want to go see it. The title kind of grossed me out. LOL. But I had a friend who had done a show with the Director and so he got us free tickets, and I loooooooved it. Hunter Foster was incredible!! That is one talented family.

And thanks, love. *HUGS*

The story reminds me of a sketch that someone did for high school Forensics about how this student's school was restricting usage of toilet paper after someone had TP'd the school... by having the teachers keep a roll at their desks, forcing students to go to the teachers when they need to use the bathroom (and in some cases having to describe what they're going to do so they get the proper amount). This ends when the protagonist, having chugged a bottle of Dr. Pepper, ends up grabbing the whole roll and running out of the room screaming "FREEDOM!!!"

Nice! That's a good way to earn ten bucks. ;) Thanks darlin'. It was a good interview, but I think I'm highly unqualified. There's peoples who have ten, and fifteen years experience who have applied. Honestly, learning about my competition, just made me more proud to have even gotten an interview. Even if I don't get the job. lol

This entry does remind me of how difficult it can be to find a place to use the bathroom in Europe. Many establishments don't allow people off the street to use their facilities. Most charge for their use.

It's ironic that Europe is at the forefront of human rights, yet establishments are allowed to prohibit people from using their bathrooms, or as a minimum charge for such.

Yeah, that's the one thing I don't miss about living there.

Yeah. Scandinavia was pretty cool about that. France was the worst, England wasn't a problem at all the time I was there.

Good to see you back! I know you never skip unless you've got really crazy stuff going on in your life, so it worries me a little when we don't hear from you for a stretch!

Awesome tidbit! The pay-pee thing has always baffled me. It's not like you can choose to NOT pee, like you can choose to not eat or not sleep in a certain place. So what do you do if you have absolutely NO money, but your bladder is screaming? Especially if you're female??? Seems like it should be a fundamental human right, right up there with being able to drink water...

Maybe I just don't understand because I'm American. :D Foreign concept, I guess...
