I thought at first that I might be an exception; last weekend went very well. But in hindsight, that was because I was focused on the play reading I took part in on Sunday night. Now that that’s out of the way, I’m feeling the passage of time slow to a molasses-covered crawl. Oh, the show itself is the easy, fun part – that’s no problem. It’s the other 21 hours of the day that are refusing to elapse.
I am beginning to assert my new Tony n’ Tina-less schedule. On my first free Friday, I’ll be joining a gang from my day job on a trip to a newly-opened casino in New Buffalo, Michigan. Two days after that, I’ll be going to a party. Gee, I’m starting to sound like a real person here! Best of all, though, I already have plans in the works to go back to the Detroit area for Thanksgiving with the family. It’ll be the first time I’ve done so in 5 years, and I’m pretty happy about that. In addition, I’ll also be attending the Detroit Lions’ annual Thanksgiving Day football game, courtesy of my friend Jim and his most excellent season tickets!
So I’m happy to be rejoining humanity, as well as having a chance to work on some personal projects that have lain fallow for far too long. I’m not saying I’d never do another open run like that; hey, I’ll listen to any reasonable offer. But it’s time to do something else.
