Since I don’t smoke, I decided to grow a mustache – it is better for the health. However, I always carried a jewel-studded cigarette case in which, instead of tobacco, were carefully placed several mustaches, Adolphe Menjou style. I offered them politely to my friends: “Mustache? Mustache? Mustache?” Nobody dared to touch them. This was my test regarding the sacred aspect of mustaches.
– Salvador Dalí, Dalí’s Mustache

Spanish Painter Salvador Dalí was born on this day in 1904 (died 1989)

I shall refrain from the “Hello Dalí” and “I mustache you a question” jokes.

It’s Monday and we’re all back to work. Well, most of us.

Truth is, I worked a good portion of the weekend. Actually, I worked a good portion of a three-day weekend.

I took annual leave on Friday to stay home to get caught up on projects. I accomplished quite a bit. Yet this morning there remain stacks of things still needing attention.

I’ll get to them. But not today.

Today, I’m back at the day job where a whole different world of stacks await. Tonight, and tomorrow night, I have auditions.

You’ll hear about them…if I’m cast.

I wish I had a cigarette case full of mustaches to hand out at my auditions.

Seriously, I wish I had that much style.

Don’t get me wrong. I have style. It’s just not Salvador Dalí passing out mustaches style.

A lot of my time this weekend was spent working on things for CAT Theatre. I designed logos and wrote a press release for the announcement of the Bifocals at CAT season. After years of association with Virginia Repertory Theatre, the Bifocals Theatre Project is now making a home at CAT. That’s a good thing.

The rest of Friday was assembling, editing, and then editing again the Playbill for CAT’s next production, Quartet, which opens on May 22.

Saturday was the CAT Family Picnic and that evening off to see Capitol Opera’s production of Iolanthe. We performed with them last year and we had friends in the production this year. It was nicely done and a lot of fun.

Sunday morning church. Then brunch at The Speakeasy. It was great, complete with live entertainment. For the first time I tried chicken and waffles. I’m not sure it will be a favorite, but I’ve now had the experience.

Then home quickly to pack for the week and head off to rehearsal for The Nieces of Lady Bumbleton.


You thought I was going to forget to mention that didn’t you? But, in case you didn’t know, tickets are on sale and more complete information is available on the CAT Theatre website.

It’s Monday now and the new week has begun. I’m not going to whine about being too busy, because I’m busy with things I want to do.

Okay, except for yard work, and I wasn’t very busy with that over the weekend.

Give me a break, it was SUPPOSED to rain.
