Over the weekend.
Family was about, so that's partly the reason.
It's also partly due to being absorbed in two different books. 1. Another in a "murder mystery" series I've been reading, it's the Agatha Raisin series. She's a 50-something retired PR lady in the Cotswolds turned murder mystery solver. Somehow it makes me feel more connected to my former home. Plus I LOVE how vividly one can live in the imagination of another. I used to "hate" reading books when I was a kid, in school, all those sup lit books. I think it was because I was being forced to read something without anyone trying to make it exciting at the same time ... 'cause some of those stories - I didn't really read - are great stories! 2. The second book is "Julie Taymor: Playing With Fire" ... and I'm beginning to feel like my mind works very much like hers!!!
I also got another phone interview, this will happen this Friday (the 21st) while I'm in the midst of my 24 Hour Project, thankfully it's during the Playwright's writing period, so I'll be free to take the interview. It's for a place I applied to before I began this blog, on January 7th I sent an application out to XRT in Los Angeles, for either (or both) an Equity SM job or a Drama Instructor's job. We'll see what happens. It would be grand to live out in the sun shine for a year ... or so ... or something.
And I've found a few more places to apply too ... that is my task for tomorrow. Take the job descriptions I've got and apply for them.
Ok ... boring blog entry ... sorry ...
Peace, Love and Hair Grease!
