November is starting off pretty hectic. Jeni is producing Same Time, Next Year
at Workshop Theatre
and it opens on Friday. She's also doing props, and anything else they need, while also serving her role as interim director of the theatre. So right now she's spending more time there than home.
We got so busy that on Halloween we didn't even get a chance to carve our pumpkins, and that's a big deal. But things'll have to slow down eventually. But we did have about 50 trick-or-treaters, so that was nice. Just not as many Tootsie Rolls left over as I would have liked.
The treadmill and I haven't connected lately. It's been about a week and a half since I was on it last. It's my fault, although I'd like to share the blame with the treadmill somehow. I had the best intentions this morning, but the time change has somehow managed to make me MORE tired instead of giving me more rest. Go figure.
I taught a juggling class tonight for an improv group at Workshop. The female lead in the show teaches the class, but had rehearsal tonight so I stepped in. There were about 12 or 14 kids there, in a warm tight space (oh, the smell of sweaty kids). There were a handful who really showed potential. I'd love to get them in a smaller group and teach them some cool stuff. I pushed their skill levels, teaching them a lot of partner tricks. There was a lot they couldn't do, but I wanted them to have at least attempted the throws with me there so they had some kind of muscle memory of the pattern. Hopefully I'll be able to work with them again soon.
I looked up the old Star Wars Holiday Special
online today. It was one of those things that came on when I was a kid, but then as I got older I somehow convinced myself that I had made the whole thing up. So I'm happy to see it resurface online like everything else does -- even if it looks a lot worse than I could have ever imagined.
A reference to the Star Wars Holiday Special was made on one of the comics on this page, but not this really cool one
here. I have to say, I can't imagine the work that went into this one. (This is the one
that referenced the holiday special.)
OK, this post is getting way too long now, and I'm not really saying much, so I'll end it here.
(OK, I wanted to post something else here that was funny, so I could end it here instead, but had nothing funny to post, so instead you get the concept of a funny-haha.)
