Well, dear readers, I, for one, am glad the weekend is upon us. Weekends are respite time these days. But it’s only two day, but I’ll take ‘em. Frankly, I am just about done with all the merde and very bored of dealing with it. So, hopefully one day soon it will take a damn hike. But I’m not writing about it anymore and I’m sure all dear readers will breathe a collective sigh of relief. All the most excellent vibes and xylophones took care of the majority of the merde, so many thanks for sending them this way. Finis.

Yesterday was a TGIF sort of day. TGIF – Tremendous Giraffe Is Fun. Tremendous Girls In France. Tell Grant It’s Fine. The Great Idiot Forgets. Ten Green Itinerant Farmers. Or just plain old Thank God It’s Friday. I got nine hours of needed sleep, got up, had some telephonic calls, answered e-mails, did some work at the piano, and then made about six or seven ounces of Wacky Noodles, a really good batch it was, too. It wasn’t actually too filling, it was just right. Whilst eating I did some work on the Kritzerland show, some work on the new musical, and did an event page for the Robby Awards, which is coming up in three count them three weeks. Then I sat on my couch like so much fish.

Last night I tried to watch a motion picture on the Flix of Net entitled The Daughter, an Australian film from Australia starring Geoffrey Rush and Sam Neill. Despite the lurid description (long-hidden family secrets – you know, one of those) what we actually have is a dreary, glacially paced film version of Ibsen’s The Wild Duck, something they conveniently don’t mention. I finally had to shut it off.

After that, I listened to some music – a little of this’a and a little of that’a, with an emphasis on the latter. I had more telephonic conversations, did some personal grooming such as finger and toenail trimming, and then took a hot shower. One simply must do finger and toenail trimming every now and then, don’t you think? I believe this is the first mention of fingernail and toenail trimming in the seventeen years we’ve been doing these here notes. We love firsts.

Oh, and a little warning, speaking of Netflix. I got an e-mail from them sent to the address I use for Netflix, telling me to update my payment information. That made no sense to me, but in a moment of abject stupidity I clicked on the link. As soon as I saw the redirect I knew it was bogus, so thankfully I didn’t put in ANY information. Instead I shut out of that, went directly to the Netflix site, where my payment information was just fine. Then I immediately cleared my cache and history, so I think everything is fine. So, do not click through if you get anything from “Netflix” telling you your payment didn’t go through. Even if you’re worried, just go to the Netflix site the real way. This has been a public service announcement.

Today, I must be up by eight to get ready for the ten o’clock musical theatre workshop I’m doing at the Group Rep. That lasts three hours. I think we have about fifteen people coming, which is a good number. Everyone will sing, but first I yak about singing, interpretation, having positivity and telling everyone that the person says loudly that they are really uncomfortable with singing will be the first person I cast. After, I’m hoping some of us can go eat something fun, like Dino’s pizza or Tony’s Bella Vista or Barone’s. Really in the mood for any of those jernts. After that, I’ll get a hard copy of the book printed, hopefully pick up some packages, then the rest of the day and evening is mine all mine.

Tomorrow I may or may not have a visitor briefly, otherwise I’ll just try to relax. Next week is lots of catching up, Kritzerland show stuff and release stuff, meetings and meals, and probably seeing some of the Levi video.

Well, dear readers, I must take the day, I must do the things I do, I must, for example, do a musical theatre workshop, I must eat, I must hopefully pick up packages, I must print out a hard copy of the book, and I must relax. Today’s topic of discussion: When was the first time you had pizza, where was it, what kind, and what is now your favorite pizza? Let’s have loads of lovely postings, shall we, whilst I hit the road to dreamland, happy the weekend is upon us.
