Just post when you feel comfortable and if you are in the mood to do so and it will be fine I think
Most interesting of your post was because I wondered "wow, she was in Germany and that's how she 'discovered' Kiwi". How did that happen? Did you see him playing on TV or reading a German tennis magazine? Maybe you can explain that a bit more in detail, I'm curious for it
I was so confused..... cause I'm a "he!" (Perhaps that's why I've never posted here. I think I am the only man!) I was in Dotmund for a production of a play of mine, "Pterodactyls" (for some reason I am VERY popolar in the German language market-- and the Scandinavian market) and I was watching TV and saw Kiwi playing. This is YEARS ago and, although I'd been a tennis fan, I hadn't seen him yet. And I became a fan. It's not, I fear, such an interesting story really.
Since I write for a living, I have periods where I am INSANELY busy and long periods where I can fill my days watching the numbers change on the internet scoreboards. That's why I'm so aggrivated that I have to go to LA for a couple of days during the open. It's not so bad that I have to have meetings. I've managed to schedule them in the morning, so with the time difference, I can be back at the hotel for most of the play. But, I'll be stuck in the air for two days (going & comming).
Mind you, I wouldn't go to the open anyway. First of all, the matches go on for hours and that's WAY to long for me to go without a cigarette! (sad, I
know). Bad enough I can't smoke on planes. And secondly I need to see what's happening on ALL the courts. I need to be home, in my office, pacing and smoking and cursing (my dog finds this most amusing). And, even if I did go, as I said, I don't think I'd approach Mr. Kiefer. First of all, I fear he'd find it an intrusion. Secondly, I work with well-known actors all the time and I feel like I've learned to lay low. thirdly, as I said, I named the family in a TV show I wrote last year "Keefer." Well, I sent Mr. K a copy, when he was in Halle. And, well, now I think, he might think I'm well, nuts. (To be honest, you have to name them something. And you know every name you submit is run through a legal department. The central characters name was originally "Calvin Collins," but there is, it seems a "Calvin Collins" living in Philadelphia, where the show was set. So the legal department tells you you must come up with a new name. Obviously, I wanted an alliterative name, so I went with Calvin Keefer-- there is, it seems, no one named Calvin Keefer in Philadelphia.
Is any of this remotely interesting?
