Saturday morning

Yikes a person can get really behind, reading their Friends List on LJ if they just skip a few days. But I am reading everyone’s entries, even if I’m not commenting much.

Tonight we’ve got tickets to see “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum” at the Shakespeare Tavern. I’ve never seen these folks do a musical before. It promises to be entertaining.

I’m up to fourteen crits on Critters now.

I always feel obligated to comment in the author’s notes when I submit a children’s story what my target audience is. I’ve stopped asking people if they think the writing style is age appropriate because I always end up with such contradictory views, but apparently, even the presence of the comment impels people to give me their opinion on that matter. It wouldn’t be problematic, except no one agrees. Sigh.

And I always end up going with my own instincts anyway.

In other news, next week is Superbowl Sunday! I don’t normally follow football. Actually, I only watch it once a year as we have a traditional shindig to watch The Game on the big screen. dude_the and our friend Patrick from New Orleans are coming down for the festivities. Alcoholic goodness and men in tight pants that accentuate their butts. Woohoo!

    everyone’s going to have different ideas of “age appropriate” because no one agrees on what that is for them anyway. some people think PG-13 should be PG-15, others dont care if their 8 year old watches it. it’s good to get an idea of what others think, but generally go with what you think it’s appropriate for. now, if everyone agreed that it was for a higher age group, *then* i’d consider it. 😉

      Yah, that’s pretty much where I’m at. If I got an overwhelming consensus one way or the other, I’d go with it, but I usually get a pretty even split of “it’s too young for your age group,” “it’s too old for your age group,” and “it’s perfect for your age group.”

      Me and Goldilocks, a couple of chicks hoping for “just right” . . .
