Well, dear readers, we got through another big full cast sequence, then did the smaller scene that followed it, at which point Kay took over and began doing her big number in act two. I went to the lobby with my leading man and woman and blocked their short scene. So, I’m not sure we’re exactly halfway through yet, and there are several big scenes left to do, but we’ll mush on on Monday and I’m still hoping we can at least get close to finishing. We worked five hours.

I only got about six hours of sleep but that’s become par for the course around these here parts. I was at LACC around nine-thirty and we began at ten. After we finished at three, I picked up some mail and then did a run to the new house – very brief, but I now have the keys, which will make things much easier. After that, I came home, made some Wacky Noodles, and wrote some more commentary – not quite halfway through, but I’ll probably do a bit more after I post these here notes. I boxed up more Blu-rays, and then my darling neighbors (Annette’s daughter) began what is the loudest damn party I’ve ever heard. It began at seven and it is STILL going strong right now. I cannot wait to be out of here, frankly. I obviously had no time to watch anything nor did I have any inclination to watch anything. At ten, I joined some friends for dessert and that was fun. I also heard the master for our next release and it sounded mostly great – just a few little cleanups to do. It’s a show release.

Today, I pick up the LACC kids at ten then they begin their boxing. There’s no way for me to get to Richard Sherman’s today, so I’ll make that visit on Tuesday, which will be much easier. With the three LACC kids and the helper and I boxing, we should get quite a bit done. I can go about four hours, maybe five, then I have to get ready for The Federal and Robert Yacko’s sound check and show. If any of our LA denizens would like to see it, I can get you half off the cover charge. After the show I come right home and have to finish the commentary.

Tomorrow is our first Kritzerland rehearsal, which I’m looking forward to, and then from there I have to grab a bite to eat and then have our Levi rehearsal, and I have to really move that along. Tuesday, if we haven’t finished we definitely will that day, and then I begin assembling the show and figuring out how the set pieces move and who moves them. I’m hopeful that by Thursday we can have a rough run-through. Thursday is also our second Kritzerland rehearsal, Friday is our long Levi day, Saturday we have an early stumble-through followed by a five-hour Levi rehearsal, Sunday is our sound check, and then we do our show. And during all of that we’ll be moving stuff to the new house. I gotta tell you.

Well, dear readers, I must take the day, I must do the things I do, I must, for example, pick up LACC kids, box up lots o’ stuff, do a sound check, and see Robert’s show. Today’s topic of discussion: It’s free-for-all day, the day in which you dear readers get to make with the topics and we all get to post about them. So, let’s have loads of lovely topics and loads of lovely postings, shall we, whilst I hit the road to dreamland, as we continue to mush on towards the end of act two.
