Not-Reports of Last Play, Gatsby and Magee-cha  
Got home from a fantastic day in Mura to find that despite leaving my TV on all day, I had not in fact taped Kimu's Cafe Break. At all.

Sadface! But does not ruin my day, of course.

Which started with toujitsuken-ing for Tsukigumi. The play still frustrates me a lot, but I'm glad I went again. Because if I hadn't, I wouldn't have seen Yuuma-chan holding the antique helmet that Maya-san pays 500 francs for. Or Shimon buying cigarettes. Or Karan-chan being super srs about winning the silent auction (and when she didn't, she was all "this sucks, I quit! D:<" and gave her seat up to let someone else bid. XDDD ♥)

Plus, the revue, in which Shimon is all *charmcharmcharm*, except when she's doing onnayaku fail XDDD And Karan-chan is all *energyenergyenergy* and is amazing 100% of the time even when she's doing rocker fail XDDD And I got to see Yuuma-chan singing in the chuuzume this time! ♥ And gained new appreciation for Ran-chan's costumes, wigs and dance partners (Shimon and Masaki at times ;D ♥) AND this time I actually WAS watching when Ahi tangoed with Asako. XDDD;;

And... er... felt really bitter again at the Kiriyan x Ai-chan dance, but we'll leave that for now.

Audience members! Susshii-san, Ayumi-san, Yuuhi, Sumika, Tomu, Tomochin, Masako, possibly Micchan and others. :D

Afterward, spent almost three hours in Cafe Terrace with Manda chatting, writing letters and watching basically all of The Great Gatsby, which was playing on the TVs. SHIMON WAS AMAZING IN IT AND I NEVER KNEW. (Ahi, Ai-chan, Morie, Yurino, Chiwawa-chan etc I already knew about, at least kind of.)

6PM saw four out of five Magee-cha-ers meet up, and by 7PM the 外人部隊 was pretty well-represented by sumire_no_hana, arlecchinic, gummical, faux_semblant and myself. ^___________^

Magee ochakai was amazing of course -- at first she told us hilarious stories of "playing doctor" with Kiriyan and such, then highly increased her awesome points by taking 15 minutes to explain her paintings, which were displayed around the room. Why she started doing them, what they mean to her, the particular details... God, she's so COOL ♥ ♥ ♥

Plus we got to take pictures of her :D And Manda was highly embarrassed rewarded by winning signed and personalized wear from Elisabeth.

At handshakes, Magee learning how to pronounce all of our names was super funtimes ("Tegan" was the best X3)

K-san and another woman from Aran's had also been there, and we had a sort of conversation circle that formed outside Silver Room, then moved down to the first-floor lobby when we were being too loud, then outside when even all the staff and Magee had left. XDDDDD;;; K-san ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ I wasn't trying to sweet-talk her when I said the evening was made 最高に楽しかった because of her ^_________^ Apparently we're all (hopefully) getting together again in a few weeks for her birthday :D

...And, er, to make a long story short, that is why missing Cafe Break could not possibly ruin my day. ;)

Gatsby redeems itself with all of the amusing side characters. Not to mention Ahi being amusing, Morie being sleezy, and most of all Ai-chan being sexy ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

I'm glad that you were able to sit through Last Play twice. Even if it's not the best show ever, I'm hopeful that I will be able to find things that would amuse me.

Audience members! Susshii-san, Ayumi-san, Yuuhi, Sumika, Tomu, Tomochin, Masako, possibly Micchan and others. :D

I'm curious, did you see someone and you weren't sure if they were Micchan or not? XD

Magee-cha ♥ ♥ ♥

Picture this: I'm sitting in the last row of B-seki. A few minutes before the curtain goes up, everyone starts standing up in their seats and craning their necks over the balcony to look at the second row on the first floor. Aka typical behavior indicating "there are stars in the audience". With my opera glasses I deduced that Susshii-san, Ayumi-san, Yuuhi and Sumika were there, and figured that was it.

Then during the revue half when Asako was in the audience, I realized that Tomu was sitting right there across the aisle. Again, using my opera glasses I could pick out Tomochin and Masako, but the spotlight was on Tsukigumi, not the audience members. ^^;;; So there were two other people in that lineup that I couldn't identify, and I kind of wonder if there weren't others in rows that I couldn't see.

RE: Last Play, you will undoubtedly see things that amuse you. The question is whether you'll come out of it feeling satisfied and fulfilled or not.

Mmm...it sounds like Kiriyan has a pretty good role, and I'm really looking forward to that. What does disappoint me is Ai-chan's treatment :/

I dunno, I haven't seen tsukigumi in a year and a half, and I have no idea when after this I'll be able to see them again. Putting my feelings about Ai-chan aside, I mostly feel really lucky that they're playing at the same time as soragumi.

I just checked a cultist blog (forgot to do this before). The girl was at this show near the front of the second floor, and she said for this show it was all of the above plus Mii-chan and Kacha, so, no Micchan, I don't think.

That's adorable. I dreamed about Magee again. There was some sort of post-show competition with a long retired OG as judge and Magee was performing (as Mephistopheles, I think?) And then afterwards she was sitting next to me and I touched her shoulder to ask her a question and she got really really angry with me. Odd that I dreamed of Tsuki since I was watching NSG before I fell asleep.

YAY! Can you imagine how awesome the Ochakai will be, just as soon as we convince her to do it? *Very Big Grin*
