Updates, updates, updates

So it’s been another while since I wrote.

In my interview post, a lot of people asked me to interview them, and I will do so when I get around to it. You have not been forgotten, only delayed.

Tonight is the penultimate performance of CST’s Macbeth, which I am in. It’s one of the last chances you’ll get to see it. Ever. The final is Saturday night, and after that, you will be stuck, weeping with the crowds and begging for an autograph, a recited line, or anything else you can get out of these wonderful actors.

Sunday marks the final audition night for another show, “Proof”, which I have read and seen, and figure I’ll audition for it, who knows what I’ll do after that.

In other news, I’m tired.
Oh so tired.
Ciao for now.

Something my mom sent me

1930’s 40’s, 50’s, 60’s and 70’s !!

First, we survived being born to mothers who smoked and/or drank while they carried us.
They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, tuna from a can, and didn’t get tested for diabetes.
Then after that trauma, our baby cribs were covered with bright colored lead-based paints.
We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, doors or cabinets and when we rode our bikes, we had no helmets, not to mention, the risks we took hitchhiking.
As children, we would ride in cars with no seat belts or air bags.
Riding in the back of a pick up on a warm day was always a special treat.
We drank water from the garden hose and NOT from a bottle.
We shared one soft drink with four friends, from one bottle and NO ONE actually died from this.
We ate cupcakes, white bread and real butter and drank soda pop with sugar in it, but we weren’t overweight because……
We would leave home in the morning and play all day, as long as we were back when the streetlights came on.
No one was able to reach us all day. And we were O.K.
We would spend hours building our go-carts out of scraps and then ride down the hill, only to find out we forgot the brakes. After running into the bushes a few times, we learned to solve the problem.
We did not have Playstations, Nintendo’s, X-boxes, no video games at all, no 99 channels on cable, no video tape movies, no surround sound, no cell phones, no personal computers, no Internet or Internet chat rooms……….WE HAD FRIENDS and we went outside and found them!
We fell out of trees, got cut, broke bones and teeth and there were no

lawsuits from these accidents
We ate worms and mud pies made from dirt, and the worms did not live in us forever.
We were given BB guns for our 10th birthdays,

made up games with sticks and tennis balls and although we were told it would happen, we did not put out very many eyes.

We r ode bikes or walked to a friend’s house and knocked on the door or rang the bell, or just yelled for them!

Little League had tryouts and not everyone made the team. Those who didn’t had to learn to deal with disappointment. Imagine that!!
The idea of a parent bailing us out if we broke the law was unheard of. They actually sided with the law!
This generation has produced some of the best risk-takers, problem solvers and inventors ever!
The past 50 years have been an explosion of innovation and new ideas.
We had freedom, failure, success and responsibility, and we learned

And YOU are one of them!

You might want to share this with others who have had the luck to grow up as kids, before the lawyers and the government regulated our lives for our own good.
and while you are at it, forward it to your kids so they will know how brave their parents were.
Kind of makes you want to run through the house with scissors, doesn’t it?!

PS – The big type is because your eyes are shot at your age

You may laugh now.

Totally another subject….

I’d like to send out a hearty welcome to a good friend who has joined LJ to be safe from harm. Props go to . w00t w00t.

Yoss and I recorded a show last week, and I didn’t get a chance to post about it. Check the feed and subscribe.

Opening night was last night for CST’s “Macbeth” and it was a hit. I only screwed up ….. Well, since I NEVER screw up, because I’m perfect, that sentence can go unfinished. Come see the show, it’s really good.
After that, we went out for drinks and such at a place on Emek called “Coolinary” – what a terrible pun. It’s big on the wine, and only have one type of beer, so I don’t think I’ll be frequenting there very often. The service was great, though, and they had about as much fun as we did.

See you at the theater!
