Mr. Blue Sky

Something so wonderful about having signed off on the book, having *gulp* paid for the printing of the book, and waking up to a gorgeous, blue sky day.
Fun fact: my first concert was ELO at the Omni in 1980. I wore my (hand-me-down) red Gloria Vanderbilt jeans and a rainbow-metalic belt (on loan from my cousin). I was soooooo dang cool. And, man, what a GREAT show!
Now, what I’d love to do is go outside and enjoy this lovely day. What I must do, though, is schedule a hundred actors (out of 3500 actors who submitted on this film since the breakdown went out late Monday night) for auditions next week, meet with a magazine editor who wants me to do a piece for him, write next week’s column for Showfax, finish my SAG Life Raft course proposal, send press releases to college and university drama professors for Self-Management for Actors, get early sales materials to SCB for both of our 2005 books, update Roxbury‘s website, read Blake‘s film script, contact the EIGHT actors waiting to hear back from me about career counseling (sheesh, I’m ashamed to have let that go so long while in Book Mode), figure out whether I can do anything social (Faith‘s bridal shower, rockstar karaoke, ARK benefit BINGO, Eric‘s LA memorial service, wrap party for the last film I cast, hanging with a friend who’s in town for a graduate showcase, another friend‘s acting class visit), and maybe–just maybe–catch up on at-home admin stuff like paying bills and cleaning the kitchen.
Okay… now I’m depressed, overwhelmed, and exhausted. Can I just go outside and play? Pretty please?

    if you need any help with any of this from now until Tuesday, I’m pretty much off of work at this point. I have Kelly’s bday party later tonight and an audition at 1 tomorrow, but otherwise, I’m more than happy to come over, run phones for you, file papers, bring you stuff, be your gopher, whatever. call me. maybe we could still find you some time to play.
    Also glad I got my counseling session when I did (it seems so long ago too)

    I grant you permission to go outside and play. I’m older, so you have to mind me. 🙂
    Afterwards, I would suggest that of all the things you have lined up to do, to make sure you go to Faith’s shower since you can’t make the wedding, and then also try to attend the memorial for your friend. His family will appreciate seeing a lot of people, whether they know who you are or not.
    Oh – and probably pay the bills. Forget cleaning the kitchen. It will just get messy again and you will have to start over.
