  1. You forgot to mention that you’re the best person that’s ever lived. But I guess to some people that would be blasphemy. (Theatre people, I mean: one mustn’t mess with the glorious pantheon of Broadway divas…but I bet they’d let you in if Kevin McCafferty came to see Midsummer and yelled out a sloppy drunked “Jackie LaVannwayyy!” when you first entered a scene…!)
