Along with my good friend, Miss Ross, I headed to Curve tonight after work to see local university students perform The Laramie Project, a play about the aftermath of the murder of Matthew Shepard, a gay university student in Wyoming who was killed for being gay in 1998. It was an excellent play that exceeded my expectations of a 'student performance'. For my full review, check out Issue 253 on Friday March 23rd. I have since discovered that the play was turned into a movie in 2002, starring a whole host of famous people including Christina Ricci, Steve Buscemi, Laura Linney and Joshua Jackson; it's well worth a watch and I'd highly recommend seeing a production of the play if one is ever in your town. It stayed with both Miss Ross and I long after we'd see it!
Look what arrived in the post this morning! I was a huge Backstreet Boys fan as a teenager and will never pass up the opportunity to see them perform live - they're about the only 'boyband' who actually sing live at their concerts, rather than miming. I'm looking forward to seeing them live again, along with New Kids On The Block in April - I'll more than likely tell y'all about it!

I woke up this morning to thick fog, but by lunchtime it was a glorious late winter/early spring day :) The fresh air and warm sunshine were much needed on my lunch break; however, as I was at work until 7:15pm, I didn't have the pleasure of leaving work whilst it was still light!
