Sometimes, I amuse myself



A person who knows how to laugh at himself will never ceased to be amused.

American actress, singer and dancer Shirley MacLaine was born on this day in 1934, right here in Richmond, Virginia. Her brother, Warren Beatty, was also born here.

It’s a beautiful, but chilly, spring Friday. I’m teleworking today. That’s good because the interruptions are less likely. I struggle because the Keurig is further away from my desk. Then again, the bathroom is closer.

I’ve a full weekend ahead, as I suspect you do as well.

Mine is full of yard work, and writing, as well as theatre, both on the production side as well as preparing for my next round of auditions.

Oh, yes, they’re coming.

Theatres around town are announcing their new seasons. I went to one announcement on Wednesday and am heading to another on Tuesday.

I’m also in the process of preparing to announce the next season for CAT Theatre. That involves graphics, and press releases, and brochures and more.

No, I’m sorry I can’t tell you what the season is. Not even if you pay me.

But, hypothetically, how much would you offer?

See how funny I am?

No, seriously. How much? I’ve got big expenses coming up this summer.

I digress.

Hopefully I’ll find some time this weekend to focus and prioritize, because right now I’m all over the map.

I’m sitting here with four electronic devices going and just found myself staring intently at the raven up in the dead tree branch that refuses to fall.

Rather than take you off on another tangent, I’m going to post this and get back to work.

Right after I watch this tribute to Shirley.
