God Bless The Whole World. No Exceptions.

I happened to see this in Time Magazine and it really struck me…

Last Vigil

Last Vigil
On the eve of the funeral, Katherine insisted on sleeping next to Jim’s body, so the Marines arranged a bed and offered to stand guard through the night. She fell asleep to music she and Jim had planned to play at their formal wedding celebration when he returned.

That’s right, we don’t care about nothing!

No, no. That’s not really true. And I love fluffy kitties….

Well, here’s the thing. I’ve been busy, busy, busy, and I’ve been emotionally drained as well. So, I haven’t written. And the longer it takes me to get an entry entered, the harder it is for me to start.

So if you are still here, buckle your seat belts, ’cause here we go!!

As you may recall, I’ve been a busy actor of late. We started rehearsing Zoo Story right after Night of January Sixteenth opened. Both Raven & I have had health and stress issues that have taken some time and effort to clear up.

I’m really proud of my work on Zoo Story. It’s my favorite play, and I’ve done it once before, but I still feel like I was discovering new intricacies with each performance. When ZS closed, my attention turned full-time to the preparations for Raven’s 3rd Annual Golden
Birthday Party and the return of the Fire Inspector who apparently has too much free time on his hands. It was also around this time that my co-worker who’s position I am assuming actually left the company.

This also coincided with Raven and I having what I can only describe as our most difficult time during the 6+ years we have been together. We had a couple of real long nights, and I had a couple of really bad days. I think it’s fair to say that we have persevered and are even stronger now than we were. It hasn’t been a fun few weeks, but it’s worth the effort.

In other news, It looks like I will probably only have a day job through 12.31.06. Our parent company was acquired, and our product is no longer being sold. So we are providing support through the end of next year. At that point, I may try and find another position witihin the parent company, or it may just finally be time to pull up stakes and try out a new locale.

Speaking of, we had our Movioke Idol trip to Los Angeles last week which was a great deal of fun. It was unfortunately, painfully brief, but we were able to visit Travis, hit up the Bondage Ball, and see U2! Ironically, the part that almost didn’t happen due to scheduling conflicts, the hanging w/The Trav-man, may have had a longer lasting effect than anticipated.

See, Chicago has been the next step in our plans for a long time. Now, we’re starting to seriously consider Los Angeles. After all, if we’re going to try and be movie stars, we should go while we’re young (or young-ish) and we know we’ll love Chicago, maybe even want to settle down there for child-rearing and such. Therefore, maybe we should give the west coast a try?
