Journal Entry 2 by ORNOT from Christchurch, Canterbury New Zealand on Sunday, June 1, 2003
I just noticed that they ask you, when you make a journal entry, "What was your experience with the book?"

That's rather personal. I didn't know it was that kind of site. We barely know each other, and the rumours about lap dancing are all just the figment of overactive and trite imaginations set on ruining the reputation of a respectable book. Neither I nor the book have been to Scandinavia.

Back to the book in hand. A friend gave it to me. I think it was a hint. Reading the back cover I think I know all the acting techniques it covers already, and use them frequently, sometimes off stage. (which is not at all like Off Broadway.)

"The coarse actor:
One who can remember his lines, but not in the order in which they come."
Example: 'To be or not to be, whether tis nobler in the slings and arrows of opposing end them.' - As You Love Not of Athens, or not.

"One who performs to sparse audiences in Church Halls amid lethal props."

"The Coarse Actor's aim is to upstage the rest of the cast. His hope is to be dead by Act Two so that he can spend the rest of the time in the pub."

"His problems? Everyone else connected with the production."

Well, that's what you get for working with amateurs, isn't it?

Will read. Big queue now. Must go, words, hard.
