RE Flood Index - I know the interval is 90 sec, but 2 minutes makes for easier maths. I could have done a scale of one to four arks, but couldn't figure out how to draw them in ascii!

Um, hate to be a bother, but I'm a bit worried over Chief Shepherd's being upset with my middle-classness and my having a same-sex life-partner (Rowen).... may be forced to sue or something if I get emotional about this... unless it is actually in the script, and not just Chief's prejudices coming through....

Fear not, Spare Shepherd, we are an all-inclusive politically-correct bunch here at the Theatre. And anyone who doesn't agree will be taken outside and left with the other wasters, wussies, welshmen, and wimps.

Besides, do you know what goes on in some of the dressing rooms while you lot are busy on stage? Good grief, if my granny were alive she'd turn in her grave.

Very sorry, Black Angel.

My only defence (and it's a poor one) is that I was writing while at work, pretending to be in an IT meeting, and getting slagged off for something that someone else had failed to do, so checking facts was a little tricky.

Sorry.

Fellow thespians, I wish to bring a complaint on behalf of my alter ego, kingsfold.

Herod has moose-napped Sven (scene 8), who was supposed to be visiting her. This is not.on.

I just hope Sven drinks Herod's palace dry, and misbehaves with all his concubines [Snigger]

I just stumbled across the critics reviews.

Harsh, dude.

I did learn a new word: solipsism. Kewl. Didn't know there was a name for it. I quite like the idea of having my own parallel universe.

But, as for Mr. Critic's harping on showing up on time and all, YOU try organizing a herd of cats across 1/3 the world's timezones. The curtain goes up in early afternoon in my part of the world and there's a paycheck to attend to and traveling to do and all that. So what if the action doesn't kick in for 4-6 hours. At least it happens.

Final Deputy Report

The Cast

Miss Molly, Honourary Magi in memorium

And the following 59 performers, in order of appearance: (those who appeared in 10 or more scenes and/or posted 100 or more times are marked in bold; those who appeared in every scene are marked with a star]:

*Musical Director - ChrisT; *Narrator - Chapelhead; Virgin Mary /Mother Mary - Smudgie; *Sheep 3 - jlg; *Chief Stage Manager - Bessie Rosebride; Dragon - Welsh Dragon; Gift of Gold - Annie P; Director - Miffy; Fourth Angel - Inanna; Tour manager - Eutychus; Stable Cat - Nicolemrw; Angel 1 - Jenny Ann; Herod - Stoo; *Rudolph the Red-nosed Sheep - Mrjuice; Tealady - SpO-On-n-ng; Chief Comic Shepherd - Moth; Joseph - Jesuitical Lad; Spare Shepherd - Rowen; Sheep 2 - Woozle; Angel 6 - Rossweisse; Sheep 1 - Jack the Lass; Jesus' Evil Twin - Erin; Deputy Chief Shepherd - Madferret; Chief Wise Man - IncurablyGeek; Angel 3 - Duo Seraphim; *Passer-by 3 - W; Wardrobe - Eanswyth; A very naughty boy - Strathclydezero; bee_of_good_cheer - Zephirine; Phil the Wise Guy - kenwritez; Evil Henchman - Sarkycow; Jedi Knight - Jedijudi; Techie 1 - mysticlisa; Lowly Shepherd - Busyknitter; Angel 2 - Huia; Gabriel - Gabriel; Assorted Strings - kingsfold; Camel Driver - Rhisiart; Miss Ship of Fools 2002 - Clare; Angel 5 - sophs; Lowly Stage Hand - flev; Lowliest Shepherd - Robert Miller; Fairy Godmother - Nanny Ogg; St. Elizabeth - Elizabeth Anne; Understudy - Mrs Tubbs; Chief Angel - WorkInProgress; First-aider - Quincy; Wise Man 2 - Alan Cresswell; Wise Guy - Kelly Alves; The Star in the East - Erin; The Cow - Jonah; Mrs. Herod - Jemmi; Third Singer - Nightlamp; Baby Jesus - Beethoven; The Donkey - Lady A; Even Lowlier Shepherd - Seigfried; Black Angel - Peronel; Pontius Pilot - Simon; Equity Deputy - Joan Rasch

These folks, by my calculation, made a total of 3784 on-stage posts.

In terms of number of posts (which combine appearances on and off stage), Smudgie as Virgin Mary/Mother Mary was number one by far - reaching nearly 500 posts! Nobody else managed to get much past half of that. The remaining top 10 (all who achieved at least 100 posts:

Musical Director[ChrisT]; Sheep 3[jlg]; Chief Stage Manager[Bessie Rosebride]; Dragon[Welsh Dragon]; Director[Miffy]Herod[Stoo]; Rudolph the Red-nosed Sheep[Mrjuice]Chief Comic Shepherd[Moth]; Joseph[Jesuitical Lad]; Angel 6[Rossweisse]; Deputy Chief Shepherd[Madferret]; Evil Henchman[Sarkycow]; Fairy Godmother[Nanny Ogg]; Wise Guy[Kelly Alves]

(Yes, I know that's more than ten, but let's call it statistical license and a desire not to leave anyone out).

Most posts by category: Random Comedy Parts, Traditional (around 700 each)
Also productive: Angels, Backstage, Shepherds, and the miscellaneous category containing villains, flyers, lumps of gold, etc
Most productive category for small number of members: Wise Men, Musicians
Most unexpected high number of posts: The Shed

The Dumbledore Christmas List award for performing with a pair of socks goes to Smudgie for doing the role of the BVM under two names and to Erin for ably performing both the Evil Grin ^h^h^h^h Twin and The Star.

Finally (you can stop cheering now), I've had a blast following this project and compiling statistics. Thanks to all of you, and thanks to The Management for all the hard work which made this possible.

In terms of number of posts (which combine appearances on and off stage), Smudgie as Virgin Mary/Mother Mary was number one by far - reaching nearly 500 posts! Nobody else managed to get much past half of that.

One could almost believe she's addicted, n'est-ce pas? [Two face]
I think that is beyond any reasonable doubt now...

Um, could someone direct me to the room where the Ship 12-Step Program is having its meeting? I was told that anyone with a star by his or her name is required to attend. Something about "getting a life"?

Yes, I hardly know what to do with all my free time since the play's run has ended! [Wink]

Curtain time every evening was only 3pm in my neighborhood, so I didn't get a lot else done either. Especially on those days I was supposed to be working! [Razz] A few nights I didn't get to sign on til late night for Ship time.

Now that I'm thoroughly addicted, I suppose I'll have to visit the Cafe more often. [Smile]

I am contemplating suing Simon, Miffy and the Ship of Fools. I had resisted all hint of addiction until some pusher conned me into the nativity play and forced me to spend hour after hour at my computer night after night. Were it not for them, I would not be logged on now, but it is in danger of becoming a habit. I shall be consulting with my lawyers.... Moth, where are you?

Miss you, Erin.
