Hello! Well, that’s enough about you. Let’s talk about me some more, shall we? Great! I know! Let’s talk about what I did today! Whoo-hoo!
First, I finished the outline for a book that, as coincidence has it, was due today. It is a thing of wonder. I’m sure everyone at the receiving end of the outline will veritably swoon as they marvel at its beneficent munificence. Which I’m quite sure are two actual words.
THEN I drove to ever-splendid Downtown San Diego in order to meet and gnosh with glamorous brainiac Jackie H., Marketing Honcho for the big, famous, long-established repetory (repretory? repetrory? repertroury?) theater down there. It seems that this October and November, said theater is going to feature as one of their really gargantuan shews The Reduced Shakespeare Company, performing their show “The Bible: The Complete Word of God (abridged)”.
Jackie, et al were wondering whether or not I might like to do a little something on their lobby stage AFTER that show–whether, as a “special guest,” I’d like to read from one of my books, or give a talk, or … whatever else I might like to do. Isn’t that nice of them? Most critically, I think, is that they said they’d feed me lunch if I came and chatted with them about my potential Special Night. So I was there like hair on a Care Bear.The lunch–eaten at a place called (I think) The Brazillian Grille–was sheer carnivorous delight. You know how Old McDonald had a farm? Well, he doesn’t anymore. I ate it. The pig, the cow, the turkey–gone. Now Old McDonald just has grass that goes, “whisper whisper here, whisper whisper there.” Poor guy.
Anyway, I’m gonna do something with the San Diego Repertory Theater on the evening of October 21. I have no idea what, yet. But something. As with today’s outline, I trust that when the time has come, I will, somehow, manage to get the job done! (For those of you who don’t know what I’m talking about there, I’ve been doing this routine for a while now about how, come what may, I always get the job done! It’s stupid, but … well, it’s just stupid. But I like it.)
And now, I’m off to clean the kitchen and then make dinner before going to pick up my wife from work. Tomorrow’s her birthday! We’re going to San Diego’s Wild Animal Park! Wootwoot!
Desperately hoping to one day be able to act anywhere near my age,
