Today is my last day at work before the two-week winter holiday. Yesterday we had our annual office luncheon and Secret Santa gift exchange (thank you, Carmen!). I missed that part of it because I was doing our first-ever live webinar in financial training.
This week has already been interesting. On Monday the transmission in the Mustang basically fell apart, so I’ve been driving the Pontiac all week. (At least I know its transmission is in good shape.) I’ve been in rehearsal for a one-act play that I wrote for the New Theatre’s Miami 1-Acts Festival winter season. Normally the playwright isn’t involved with the play after the first reading or so, but in this case the director couldn’t find an actor to play one of the roles, so for the first time since 1995, I’m performing on stage. I’ve never acted in a play that I wrote, so this is an interesting learning experience as I occasionally wonder who wrote this shit?
I’ve also had a play selected for the Miami version of the national One-Minute Play Festival that goes on in January, so I’ll be meeting with the director of my offering for that sometime in the next couple of weeks.
This is my roundabout way of telling you that things are going to get a little quiet after today until New Year’s. Posting will be light and variable through the break, but I will be here when I’m not doing something else like working on another play still in the works or one of the several other projects, plus a crossword or two.
