Well, dear readers, why are certain days so disquieting?  Why are there never dislouding days?  Always disquieting.  Yesterday was such a day and I have no idea why really.  It just felt disquieting rather than relaxing, which is what I needed it to be.  But noooooo, that would have been too easy and so we had disquieting instead.  We’re still without a leading man, since the fellow we offered it to decided he’s got too many other things on his plate.  I’m finding this whole search vaguely irritating. But we do have to find someone and soon as we start music rehearsals in a mere week.

I did get nine hours of sleep, so that was good.  Once up, I did the usual things – some work on the computer, some telephonic calls, mostly about this final casting we have to do this week, making some adjustments to the sheet music of another A Carol Christmas song, and other such things.  Then I decided I’d do In ‘N’ Out for my meal o’ the day and drove over there at three o’clock to find the drive-up line was a block-and-a-half long and inside the restaurant jammed – at THREE O’CLOCK.  So instead I went directly to Taco Bell and had that as my meal o’ the day – the same exact amount of calories actually.  I brought it home, ate it all up, and had some of the toasted coconut almond chip ice cream – still great after all these hours.  I listened to some music, had to deal with a little haineshisway.com drama that thankfully went away pretty quickly, and then I finally sat on my couch like so much fish.

Last night, I watched a very poor thriller on the Flix of Net entitled In Darkness, about a blind piano player gal.  It had very arty pretentions in terms of direction, and then after the initial blind girl thriller stuff the film goes into a whole different direction, stays there for a while, and then finally offers up one more completely absurd side road, which makes absolutely no sense considering what came before it, and then it whimpers to an end.  It’s an English film and it has its share of mumbling actors so that I didn’t really understand half of what they were saying, and the whole thing was just pretty bad.

After that, I listened to some music, ate some more ice cream, had some more telephonic calls, and that was the end of the disquieting day.

Today, I would appreciate no disquieting day whatsoever.  I have to choose two more songs, then do a show order and write commentary, I also have to prep a new release or two for announcing maybe at the end of the week, I’ll eat, I’ll hopefully pick up packages, and then I’ll just come back here and do whatever needs doing.

The rest of the week is filled with meetings and meals, a work session for the Kritzerland show, more auditions, and preparing to begin our A Carol Christmas journey, which begins the following week.  I have to also order more checks, we’ll be shipping out Porgy and Bess orders on Wednesday and the other two titles should be in by Friday or possibly the following Monday and then we’ll get those shipped out, and I’m sure there’s more stuff my disquieted brain is forgetting.

Well, dear readers, I must take the day, I must do the things I do, I must, for example, choose the final two songs, do a show order and write commentary, eat, hopefully pick up packages, prep a new release, and do whatever needs doing.  Today’s topic of discussion: What are your favorite movie and theater songs with a sci-fi or horror theme?  Let’s have loads of lovely postings, shall we, whilst I hit the road to dreamland, hoping that all disquieting days are in the past, and I’m looking squarely at you yesterday.
