Back to the Grind

By Hannah Wallace   Whew, let me tell you something, after 10 days off with no real plan for occupying them, it’s almost a relief to be back at work. (Almost.) Not so much because I wanted something to do, but because the feeling that I had things to do and wasn’t doing them began […]

The Week That Was

Celebrity deaths cap a frantic pre-vacation week.   By Hannah Wallace     Being that this is supposed to be a Gen-X blog, I feel obligated to mention the death of Michael Jackson, and add to the din my own memories of watching the Thriller video and dancing (poorly) to Bad, and trying for years […]

Summer Rundown

Worky worky, busy bee!   By Hannah Wallace   I’m kind of entertained at my mishmash of work activities this morning: I went from updating the Charity Register database with social events for next season, to calculating percentages of revenue changes for Top Companies, to researching the specs of a $30,000 home theater projector for […]

Sports Star-struck

Meet my new best friends: Wade, Luke, Dave and Mia. By Hannah Wallace   CCB, Raymond and I represent all three Tampa teams. (Incidentally, I bought my jersey at Champs the day of the event.

Past-Due Rundown

Look at all the things I should’ve told you about last week!   By Hannah Wallace Oy, sorry for the hiatus, folks. Various things wound up blog-blocking me last week. As a result, I’ve amassed quite a few events—past and future—to share with you. Discuss:   Will this be our new house? Should it be? […]

Stage Stories

The theater is still magical, even when things go horribly wrong.   By Hannah Wallace   Ma’s Winter’s Tale of disaster on Monday got me thinking about all the Asolo stories we heard from my parents and other theater folk growing up.

Monday Rundown

Bright lights, big expletives in my mother’s weekend recap.   By Hannah Wallace   Call it the Noises Off Phenomenon: Stuff going wrong on stage makes for fun stories.

The Velvet Hammer

Danny’s a winner! (And I? Am kind of a loser.)   By Hannah Wallace     Knock on wood, three boxes of Kleenex, 12 Sudafed and a can of matzo ball soup, I think I finally shook this damn cold. And maybe it was the phenylephrine, but really do see a link between the vacation […]
