Bruce Kimmel Photograph bk's notes

Well, dear readers, I think it is high time I write these here notes, don’t you? Certainly, it’s not low time to write these here notes so it must be high time I write these here notes.  I have been dilly-dallying and shilly-shallying, not necessarily in that order.  I have been in the shower and I have been listening to music.  Of course, all that was after a rather full day of writing, but we’ll get to that momentarily.

Yesterday was rather an okay day.  I got about seven hours of sleep, arising around ten-thirty.  Once up, I answered e-mails and did a few things on the computer, whilst getting coherently coherent.  Once coherent, I began futzing and finessing and I must say I did a whole lot of it, like about two hours of it, ultimately writing one new page after finishing the futzing and finessing.  Then I went and picked up some packages, then stopped at Taco Bell on the way home, got some foodstuffs, brought them home, and ate them all up. They were okay, but I think I have to be done with fast food for a while now, save for maybe In ‘N’ Out and Subway, and I won’t do much of those either.  I need to eat good food and not too much of it.

Once I was done with food, then I began to write more pages and did a total of six by the time we had our work session for the Kritzerland show.  That went well and quickly, less than an hour.  I went back to writing and got up to ten pages but was still on the first chapter, so without question I believe this is the longest chapter one I’ve ever written, save for GEE whose two halves consist of lone long section each.  Then I had to go to Gelson’s, as I needed Chapstick and whilst there I also got some toasted coconut chip ice cream.  Standing at the next checkout line to my right was none other than Mr. Robert Morse. I came home, had a tiny bit of ice cream, then listened to music and caught up on stuff other than writing.

Then I did an additional four pages, then a bit later, a final page, which brought me up to fifteen pages.  I have no doubt I will be majorly futzing and finessing this morning.  Such is the way of things.  Then it was high tie to write these here notes, after the taking of a hot shower.

Today, I’ll be up by ten, I’ll futz and finesse and then write as many new pages as I can, hopefully somewhere between six and ten, I’ll hopefully pick up some packages, and then I do the first of four coaching sessions that people took as a perk in our last Indiegogo campaign.  That’s a three-hour thing and we do that with Alby Potts at the piano. I don’t know this girl or her mother, so it will be fun to meet them and work with the young person. After that, I’ll go get a nice meal somewhere – real food, but not too much of it.  I haven’t been to Jerry’s Deli in a while, so that’s a possibility, but I also haven’t been to Hugo’s in a while, or Corky’s, or Barone’s – all possibilities.  Then I’ll come home, write more pages, and then I’ll relax and listen to music or watch something.

Tomorrow is an all writing day, save for eating and picking up mail or packages.  I’ll take music and watching breaks of course, and I’ll also finish up writing the Kritzerland commentary.  Sunday is also an all writing day and then I’ll Xerox however many pages that is and get them to Muse Margaret for a look-see.  Monday we begin our Kritzerland rehearsal week. We start late due to it being an all young person show, so I have a meeting prior to that for a little concert we’re doing towards the end of the month at the Gene Autrey museum, basically a put-together of two shows we did at film score fan Henry Stanny’s house in the last couple of years.  There’s some new material, but mostly I get to recycle the already-written commentary, so that’s good.

Well, dear readers, I must take the day, I must do the things I do, I must, for example, futz and finesse and then write new pages, hopefully pick up some packages, and then do a three-hour coaching session, which I’m looking forward to, and then I eat and write more and relax.  Today’s topic of discussion: It’s Friday – what is currently in your CD player or your DVD/Blu and Ray player?  I’ll start – too much to contemplate, frankly.  Your turn.  Let’s have loads of lovely postings, shall we, whilst I hit the road to dreamland, as it will be high time I get some sleep.
