Glad you're pleased with how things went! Definitely keep us posted.

Also, so sorry about your ankle. I dunno, that stage expression for good luck "break a leg" has always bothered me. Like, when I first heard it when I was a kid, I think I thought it was a serious Mafiosi threat or I pictured thugs taking a tire iron to someone's femur (I must have watched Mafia movies when I was a kid in the seventies) and I might have clung to my mother's arm in a panic when I first heard someone wished luck this way and said: "why break a leg?! STOP THE PERFORMANCE!!!! Someone's going to get hurt!"

Yeah, it still bothers me. I don't like violent implications for luck. I'm touchy like that.

Dancers say "merde"; maybe we should switch to that instead. On balance, s.hit > violence/injury!
