Bamberflambie and Flub

Sigh...it's Thursday, spring isn't in the air, and June is around the corner staring at me.

I went from having too much time on my hands that kept dissappearing before I could use it up. Suddenly, I have a plate full of shite, and not enough time. It seems like things should be more evenly paced, but I have yet to find a way to accomplish that. Oh well, I'd rather have too much going on than be bored.

Last night, I wanted a nap, but instead I went to rehearsal. Now, to backtrack, the fact that I am in the show at all is a miracle. I had a seriously crappy audition. I wasn't as prepared as I should have been, and to top it off, totally had a panic attack on the way there, due to the location of the audition. I was surprised to be cast, and was skeptical of the whole shebang. I thought, at first, that the director was going to be one of those way-too-serious directors, all about filling out worksheets and shite. However, he is a ton of fun. So far, this has been a blast to work on. Last night's rehearsal was fun. It helps that in between readings and runs, we chat about bizarre movies, and funny shows, and highly intelligent plants, and that the lead singer from Survivor is now doing real men of genius ads* and that Orson Welles' ** last film was Transformers: The movie. We also went to Houlihan's after rehearsal. I spent way too much, after having 3 bacardi diets and an appetizer (Hey, I wasn't driving). It was fun to chat with the director and his wife. Their anniversary is my birthday, and only two weeks after our anniversary. They obviously have great taste. We capped of the evening by watching the first episode of Chapelle's Show. I laughed my arse off. The first episode contains my favorite skit, the one with the black white supremacist. Good Times.

I am totally pimping the show, so you all had better be at the Bryant Lake Bowl on Tuesday night (that's this tuesday, the 1st).

*I think it's a sign that maybe a new career is in order when your band goes from playing stadiums to company holiday parties. (G was able to see Survivor at his company's party several years ago. )

**A Sconny?? Really????
