Bought second hand specifically for bookcrossing.

Fellow bookcrosser ORNOT is currently in rehearsals for a play at the Ngaio Marsh Theatre, so I'm hoping between us we can work out some sort of opening night themed release for this book.

Released on Wednesday, May 21, 2003 at Ngaio Marsh Theatre, University of Canterbury in Christchurch, Canterbury New Zealand.

Released on the Opening Night of Cosi, an Australian play - you can't have everything (at least it's antipodean) - in the auditorium of the Ngaio Marsh Theatre!!!!! Whey-hey! Wow, yeah yeah yeah!

Anyway, I pretended that part of my warm up was to run through the theatre naked carrying a book.... No, that was a dream I had. I pretended to be warming up by running up and down the steps in the theatre, then sitting down in row G, seat 14. I left the book on seat 15. This is significant.

I thought I got away with it, but another actor walked on stage just as I was standing and also pretended that part of their warm up was to run up the steps to row G. Why haven't you journalled the book!!!! Just as well it hasn't been journalled, yet, because the book would have been found before it was released.

FutureCat was right. We did release it under a theme: Copacabana. We draped the portrait of Dame Ngaio Marsh with plastic fruit, and drew sunglasses and a bikini on the picture-glass in fitting places. Tight fitting. Like cling-wrap, but looser. Like a child's pajamas on a bear, or a tall elk. Or a beer - God, I could do with one right now.

Anyway, it was all very exciting and the butler didn't do it, which I thought was a wonderful twist. And so unexpected. It was the second act dresser. Mahogany with brass fittings. Who would have thought. The Dame at her best. And so theatrical. I can't wait to see the Musical.
