“It is hard to adapt to chaos, but it can be done. I am living proof of that: It can be done”
― Kurt Vonnegut, “Breakfast of Champions”
Today is the birthday of comedian/actor Eddie Izzard. About twenty years ago, I sat directly across from him at a group dinner after one of his shows; he was a very nice and down-to-earth guy & I remember his sparkly blue fingernails. I had a contact with the theatre management & that’s how I got in. I wasn’t very familiar with his work at the time, so I wasn’t super starstruck. It was only in retrospect, years later, that I sort of marveled at the entire thing. Since then, I’ve seen him in several live performances.
