Going to Oxford, UK Next Month

I feel so pleased and excited about my upcoming trip to the UK and Sweden next month. This will be the fifth time I have presented in the UK and hopefully will get to some new places including Wakefield and Nw Castle.

The Quakers in Oxford will host one of my shows. (Thanks Jon Brown for the poster. Click on it for a larger view). The Quaker meeting is right by the Eagle and Child, famous stomping grounds of CS Lewis and the gang. In fact, I believe Lewis married his wife Joy in the same building as the Quaker center on the second or third floor.

The rest of the schedule is slowly getting up on the site as I get more details. Hope to see some of you again soon!Oh, and right now I am in North Carolina with my dad at the home of family friends. He heads back North in the morning, and I have shows here before heading off to Oregon. As I type, the TV blares aways in the background (for the benefit of our friends’ Quaker Parrot–I thought Quakers are supposed to be QUIET) and an advert just came on for Thursday’s Tyra Banks Show and BAM there I was was sitting next to Mormon cutie Steven Fales. If you get a chance, check out the show on Thursday.

    Ooo…I am *so* jealous! I studied at Oxford for a while (just down the street from the “Bird and Babe,” in fact) and I’ve been trying to get back ever since!

    Have a Pims Cup for me, Peterson! And if you have any hint of interest in books, go on the tour of the Bodlean Library. I’m sure my little piece of heaven is going to look a lot like Ole’ Bodley.

    Any other performances on your UK tour m’dear? I shall look into getting to Oxford that day.

    Say ‘Hi’ to Willie for me. One of these days I’ll get over there myself…

    Yay! You’re back in the UK.

    Really hoping to catch you – maybe in Oxford.

    Thanks for the heads up about Tyra Banks. I had been wondering…

    Glad you are doing so well (and being so faithful).

    OK, I know I say this every time, but this time I really will try to drag the boys out to see you. If they stay indoors any longer they’ll grow blind, like moles.

    Peterson, are you sure you don’t need a personal assistant on your UK tour?

    BAH! Who needs to go out, and see some theatershow?
    Today with all the great things on TV and Internet, we could see what happen to Peterson without leaving our livingroom.
    Thank you Peterson for embracing technology.

    ally, really! I didn’t know. What did you study. Yes, Pims Cup for you and I will try to check out the library if I have a chance (it is a quick turn-around before I fly to Copenhagen the next day)

    CA, YAY! I get to see you. Sweet.

    Bruce, will do and Willie, it is good I am going to see you. I owe you some money for comics and I want to restock!

    freedom bound, yeah, i hope so too. I somehow thought you were up North. i will be in Wakefield as well, still working on details.

    Liz, you are welcome. Let’s see how they edit me on Tyra. Christine says I sport a funky military style from what she saw on the brief promo. Sort of my queer Quaker solider look.

    Christine, they will love you in the UK and Sweden (I imagine they already do)

    Daniel C, Ugh, we are all getting suck into the cyberworld (not that I mind–I am a youtube addict) but NOTHING, NOTHING can replace live theatre and you know that better than most! See you in Stockholm!

    I did a summer grad program in Religion and Culture at Wycliffe Hall. It was a spectacular program, and studying in that environment was a dream come true!

    Ack! I just checked the date. I have a con on 13 and 14 May. 🙁

    It’d be cool if you’d come to visit though! You are very welcome to our New Home.
