Now, there's a man after my own heart. I couldn't describe myself as a 
web site *designer* because I have diddly squat design sense, but 
*developer*, yes, that's what I do. No television, check. Play music 
(accordian, piano and just had my second lesson on the bassoon, but... 
). And lots of theatre.
I've never seen Annie, but I've never met anybody who performed it 
because they wanted to do it: societies seem to put it on because it's a 
sure-fire money-spinner.
