Well, dear readers, there are days and there are days and yesterday was barely a day and here’s why: I fell asleep around two in the morning and set the alarm for ten-thirty. Check. But, as has been happening more and more lately, the cell phone rang with a spam call at around eight. Somehow, and I should figure it out, it rings on my iPad and when it does so it screws up the alarm, which then doesn’t go off. I heard it ring and fell back asleep and the next thing I knew is I woke up, thinking the alarm probably hadn’t gone off and that it was most likely around noon, which wasn’t going to make me happy. But it wasn’t around noon – it was four in the afternoon. Fourteen hours I slept and in so doing missed almost the entire day. I couldn’t believe it.
I got up, got dressed, and caught up on a whole slew of e-mails. Then I entered some fixes, had a brief visit with Grant Geissman and paid a bunch of bills, but not all – got to pay ‘em all and hopefully I can do that today or tomorrow at the latest. Then I caught up on other stuff, then went to Gelson’s rather than go sit for an hour in a restaurant. I got the ingredients for faux chicken stroganoff, came home, made it, ate it, and then spent the next four hours entering fixes, maybe 100 pages of ‘em.
I listened to a lot of music whilst doing all that. I took a couple of breaks, too. And that was that. And that is why section one of these here notes is so damn short – I missed an entire damn day. Damn them, damn them all to HELL.
Today, I’ll arise by eleven at the absolute latest, I’ll enter fixes all the livelong day until I get food, then I’ll mosey on over to the theater at seven for our put-in, just for blocking tonight. I’ll leave by nine, I hope, and then come home and enter more fixes. I need to finish this batch because the next batch has arrived and that’s yet another six hundred-plus pages to do. I gotta tell you. We’ve gotten more nice reviews for the show and here’s a nice little quote sheet of them for your mental delectation.
Tomorrow, I must settle on a piano player for the Kritzerland show. Everyone has schedule problems and it’s driving me crazy. I gotta tell you. Otherwise, it’s entering fixes all day, and then maybe attending our show in the evening. Oh, and wishing everyone a Happy Valentine’s Day. The weekend is all fixes all the time and definitely attending the Sunday matinee for our talk-back. Then the hope is that next week we can start designing the book – prior to that I have a ton of stuff to scan that we’ll use to illustrate stuff in the book. I also saw several cover ideas, one of which I quite like right off the bat. So, I sent all those to Muse Margaret for her opinion.
Well, dear readers, I must take the day, I must do the things I do, I must, for example, be up by eleven at the latest, enter fixes, hopefully pick up packages, eat, enter more fixes, and then do a put-in, after which more fixes and relaxing. Today’s topic of discussion: What are the most hours of sleep you’ve ever gotten? Let’s have loads of lovely postings, shall we, whilst I hit the road to dreamland, hoping there will be no more disappearing days for a while.
