When The Weather's Fine We Go Fishin' Or Go Swimmin' In The Sea

Survived our annual Day of Independence Celebration of Blowing Things Up with nary a scratch - kids in the neighborhood naturally got the festivities off to an early start by setting off a 20 minute round of ear-splitting explosive devices at around 11:30 p.m. on the 3rd, but aside from one semi-major mishap far to the north (Mt. Vernon, I believe) most of the denizens of Our Fair City adopted the "safe and sane" approach.

It was a beautiful day at the lake, and nice to touch base with old dock-mates, some of whom I swear I haven't seen in a couple of years.

And Amy, on the extremely remote chance you ever come across this blog, "hairbrush" is a lousy "safe word"...

In other news, the festival of mini-plays is going along quite smoothly. We did the piece I directed on the 4th, and it was generally well-received by the passersby, along with a few friends and colleagues who also showed up. We'll be doing a mini-marathon of all this week's offerings tomorrow, 4:00 p.m. at Cal Anderson Park on CapHill, so if you happen to be in the neighborhood, stop by.

Last night was the culmination of the other little project I've been helping a friend out with for the past couple of weeks, sort of a payback for her performing in one of the "Twilight Zone" pieces I directed back in January. She was looking for an extra set of eyes for some directorial feedback, and so I stepped in on a couple of occasions to give her a chance to be an actor, instead of just an actor/director, which can be a difficult juggling act under the best of circumstances. The pieces themselves were definitely out of the "mainstream", as one would expect for the type of organization this is, but they managed to pack in about 120 people into their little studio space last night, and the response was so enthusiastic, that they are seriously considering adding a play series into their schedule on an on-going basis. Naturally, I politely requested to have my hat thrown "into the ring" for future directing opportunities.

Otherwise, it's been a fairly slow week in Our Fair City. My theatre projects are winding down for the summer, although there may be one or two surprises that come down the pike - aren't there always? - and I'm counting down the days to next weekend's mini-vacation in the Land Of The East before four days of conventioneering; which I'm still not totally sure about in terms of my actual participation, since I'm going as a staff member, and not as an official delegate, so I have a feeling my "duties" may be relegated to mundane activities such as fetching beverages and gathering materials, and perhaps attending a meeting or two.

We'll just see when we get there.

BTW, my computer is in the shop for a sick video screen (nothing serious - I hope), so entries may be even more infrequent and/or sporadic for the next couple of weeks, depending on when I can get it back. I'll update as I can, when there is bloggy-good updatingness to be had.

In the meantime, wear that sunscreen and consume that liquid - it's a hot one out there!
