Mental Flotsam, Mental Jetsam

Because the only thing that beats going crazy is going crazy with somebody else

Lights, Camera, Action

(If anybody can think of a different cliche' to use for a title regarding the topic below, I'm all ears.)

I got a new acting gig. Wednesday through Sunday, I'm shooting a short flick for the American Film Institute. It should come as little surprise that the character's a bit of a goofball. I can't wait.

If this weren't enough, the gal running the sign-up desk this afternoon was someone I knew in High School. Haven't seen her in eight years, but we recognized each other right off. Small world.

Later this afternoon, I saw a wonderful production of A Midsummer Night's Dream in Baltimore. (Kate was kind enough to invite me to use her extra ticket.) Just wonderful. It was outdoors, and they had this rigging set up with a hoop, and another one with some kind of silken-fabric hammock, but the actors using it were pulling some near-Cirque Du Soleil maneuvers with 'em. Considering they were fairy characters, it was a most appropriate choice. If you've got the time, I highly recommend you go see it.

Kate and I had dinner after the show. I really enjoyed catching up with her. She's already heading back up to NY.

It's going to be a fun week, folks. More to follow.
