Where the Hell have you been?

It’s been ages since I’ve written here. Partly because I’ve been busy, but mostly because I’ve been on Twitter. So much has happened since the last entry. I’m not even sure where to start. I suppose I’ll give it a try, though.

  • Michael Jackson, Farah Fawcett, Ed McMahon, Bill Mays and a few others died. Those that I named all died within a one week period, which made it kind of rough on everyone that cared. I found myself getting a little choked up whenever I heard a Michael song on the radio. And I ended up watching the funeral online while I was at work. My coworker and I cried through most of it.

  • Tracey and Amol now have an official wedding date and venue. We also have Tracey’s dress. Now we have to send out the “Save-the-date” and invitations. There’s so much more to do… but in their defense they did just buy and move into a new house. They had the housewarming last Saturday. We had a wonderful time! It was interesting considering that Erin was invited and actually showed up. Seeing as it had been more than a year since we’d seen each other, it was definitely different.
  • We’ve finally launched the website. It’s in blog form, but that’s fine as almost everything is these days. I’m not really writing for it right now as my schedule doesn’t really allow me to submerse myself in the social and stylized world of much outside of my immediate life. I will be doing light editing, though. I’m working on back editing as I was having issues logging in for a while. So I’m going backward before I go forward. If you get the chance, check us out here:
  • School has kept me pretty busy outside of work. Since I last wrote, we’ve done two plays. One was “Antigone”, a Greek tragedy in which I played the role of King Creon. Contrary to the name of the play, though Antigone is the title character, Creon is more so the lead. We then performed a Commedia dell’arte entitled “The Imaginary Autopsy/Doctor Arlecchino”. I can basically describe it as a more slapstick comedy. I played the role of the bumbling Il Dottore (the Doctor). That was probably the most fun I’ve ever had working or even performing a show. Right now, we’ve begun working on our Shakespeare play. We will be performing “Much Ado About Nothing”. We have yet to be cast, but I do know what part I want. We’ll just have to see if I get it.
  • I’ve apparently sparked enough interest with my coworker and his wife as they’ve invited me to join them for her for the third annual celebration of her 27th birthday. Their cool and interesting people so I do believe I’ll join them. I’m very much for expanding my social circle.
  • I’ve been writing fiction again and posting it online under a pseudonym. I won’t be revealing it, but I’m not disappointed about any of it.
  • It’s possible that I’ve had two accidents since the last time I posted. I can’t remember when the first one was. Regardless, that means I’ve had a total of three accidents, with only one being my fault. Luckily, my premium hasn’t gone up that much as a result of them not being my fault.
  • We went to see “The Color Purple” at the Kennedy Center the Sunday before last. It was okay. They changed some parts from the Broadway show, but left some things out, too. That definitely left me feeling not totally fulfilled. Like the things they added were good, but the things they took out, I thought added more to the story. Also, I wasn’t totally thrilled about the casting. Whoever played Shug over-sang everything. And Fantasia wasn’t bad as Celie, but she lacks the ability to really hold a note properly.
  • I know there’s more stuff, but I just can’t seem to think of it. My office has become cluttered with other people’s shit because we’re having the main part of the office redone and they need a place to store stuff for the weekend. It’s so fucking distracting and what really irks me is that no one really asked if they could, except for Camille. So because I can’t focus, I’m going to go play video juegos until some actual work comes up.
