So, I'm in Illinois.

The town is pretty much as I remembered. That's bad.
I'm also still waiting to start work. That's boring.

Good quality tiime with niece and nephew. I'm their worst nightmare as a homework coach (That's cool. I bet you could learn more about that if you looked it up. How do you spell that? The...

Time for my periodic blog post, with plenty to say!

Shortly after my last post, I went away for the summer. It was my usual summer gig, teaching acting to junior high kids at a camp in the midwest. It's the best thing I do all year, and I felt just as much in my element as ever in doing it. However, I was...

Haven't blogged in a while, but can't let this pass.

I'm wicked pissed at my employers. We're moving to a new theater for next season, as in brand, spanking-new, built from the ground up type of new. As in, when I was hired a year ago, it was with the understanding that I would help usher my department through the considerable...

It's always a good idea to get clarification on things as a matter of personal policy -- even when you don't think you need it. That way people have a more difficult time operating duplicitously.

I was poking around old threads, and I saw this one, where folks discussed their alma mater. I saw you went to IMSA - I had a buddy there, though he would have been a couple of years behind you.

Also - that's weak about yer job.

I'm through the tough part of another show (the reason for my silence of late). It opens Wednesday, but my designer leaves today. I go into "run" mode, and can step out of "run around in fucking circles keeping current shit working while finding time to make changes happen" mode.

Anyhoo - I look at the calendar, and realize I have ten days left of...

Nervous and excited.

First, what I've been up to. This week, I designed lights for a community theater production of Cabaret. Fun, but really hard. Normally, for a show like this, you'd have an infrastructure of equipment that costs, oh, let's call it $80,000, and a show-specific budget of at least $4000. (The last musical my dayjob company did had a...

It's actually making me nervous. Perhaps it's best that you'll not be there. Out of sight, out of mind - and all that?


Good luck on the womanizing! Hehe.

Shitty fucking day.

It rained in my living room. Again. We put bins back out, and collected about fifty gallons of water. After a couch and rug were ruined. The landlord is apparently sending someone over tomorrow.

Also, I discoved that my ex had taken $200 out of our old joing account a few days ago. I was already in process of closing the account...

Met some cool SG Philly people last night, though briefly. Stupid nocturnal work schedule.

Then met up with my ex-roommate, who was in town for the night. He moved to Vegas with a stripper (I think she's more a fetish model, but he jokingly refers to her as a stirpper), and was back in town for a bit. He's lighting a show for...

Yeah good meeting you too man. I've been to probably like 7 in the area and I've gotta say that that place is among my favorite. Of course I've only been there for their tuesday night special. I don't know what it looks like on a saturday. Favorite's gotta be Daydreams though if it's done right. You can bring in kegs and the girls(of which there are alot) are fully nude. That place has several side stages too so you don't have to fight your way up to the main stage. Oh and they don't come around busting your balls to get a lapdance.

Urge to kill: high.

I awoke this morning to our ridiculous and loud front door buzzer. My roommates don't tend to get out of bed to answer the door, even if it might be the fire department coming to evacuate them from a ragin blaze. So, I got up and answered the door.

It was PGW (the gas company). They asked for my apartment...

I've been a bad blogger. I'll make up for it, hopefully.

First - It will now be measurably easier for me to update, as my broken laptop keyboard is now replaced. It took several calls to Apple, to convince them to give me the damn part, without charging me $80, and to let me fiix it myself in ten minutes, rather than give up...

I stopped by Whole Foods on my way home from work today. I hadn't eaten all day, and couldn't bear the thought of crappy takeout food. God a nice sandwich (cranberry tuna salad of focaccia), some potato salad, and a little bittersweet chocolate tort for later.

None of that is really the point of this story, though.

I had forgotten how many shockingly...

I'd avoided posting because I didn't want to take that picture down. It amuses me. It's one of my profile pics, if you missed it and care.

I decided on an introspective blog tonight.

I feel like my career's a bit fucked up. I'm advancing in the ranks of what I do very quickly. I'm one of the best...
