Stage Beauty Update

Forgot to mention that Samuel Pepys is a minor character in Stage Beauty, madly scribbling little notes to himself (the subject of one of my other favorite lines in the movie).

Pepys' famous diary is being blogged day-by-day here. It's great fun, and an excellent look at life in those times. It's currently at 1661, so it'll be a few years yet till we reach the Great Plague (1665) or the Great Fire (1666). Currently, he is apparently trying to suck up to a rich merchant uncle.
