Also, thanks to the Toasties who gave me many wonderful recommendations for my trip to London; I wasn't able to hit them all, but I waited for an hour for a table at Dishoom and it was 1000% worth it.

Let's all take to the sea together.

SCREAM-GASPING AND CRYING

WHAT THE ABSOLUTE EVER-LIVING FUCK IS THIS WORLD WE LIVE IN?????

As sad as I am, and as sad as this is - I'm glad the ending of the Toast is with a final, decisive period. So many sites and communities I've loved have had the slow drawn-out death of a bad opera, or been swallowed up by their hosting services crashing, or we've all drifted away. At least this is ending on a very high note and we had fair warning.

J/K I'M STILL SUPER SAD. At least I have all the snack food I bought on vacation to console me. Anybody want a Jaffa cake?

I dropped out of my program after my MA for various reasons and I have survived! I have a career on the admin side of higher ed that I quite enjoy (even though right now in the thick of orientation I am ready to throw things). A lot more people do this than you might realize.

ACCEPTABLE ANSWER. I made myself start getting teary out of nowhere the other day thinking about the finale!

My three times were as follows:
1) Philip's death
2) Burn (trying not to GASP FOR AIR as tears stream down my face)
3) Hamilton's final soliloquy to the end

Oh, wait, 4) Meeting Lin-Manuel Miranda in the lobby and trying to explain how much In the Heights and this piece and his entire career mean to me (did NOT sob uncontrollably, got some amazing selfies with him, highlight of my life)

Nicole, I had the same worry when I went to see Hamilton at the Public back in April - what if I'm the one person who doesn't like it? What if the hype is too big? What if it's ALL hype?

It is not hype. It is not too big. This show is a magnificent achievement and everyone on stage is working to the fullest capacity of their talents. (I saw Javier Munoz as Hamilton rather than Lin-Manuel but he was spectacular and also a total sweetheart when I spoke to him in the lobby afterwards.) Soundtrack's out in 26 days and I cannot wait.

How many times did you cry? I cried three times, although the third time was "the entire finale".

Personally, I commend AaM on not just going "Holy shit, dump this weirdo and let him drive his own go-kart straight to hell."

If you give a Randian a joke post, they're going to want a mug of shut-the-fuck-up.
