It's one of those days folks. today in Mark's head we are mostly pretty bored. I apologize for what every happens next. I can't be held responsible. I'm over caffeinated and under engaged. What's a boy to do? Blog I guess. So what's been going on in the world of me? I do realize that it's been quite some time since I've actually done more then just post weird pictures and video clips up here.
Well, it is December in Chicago, so that of course means that it's cold as all get out here. We've been getting a fair amount of snow recently which is really only serving to annoy me. It is pretty when it is falling at least. Life has been picking up a bit for me recently. This week i began rehearsals for the remount of "The Book of Liz". This time around I'm getting to try my hand at being a Stage Manager. So far things are going well, and I actually think that the show will be stronger this time around. Some cast changes will result in a strong show being even stronger. The thing that I am the most excited about is getting to work in the new Chemically Imbalanced Comedy Theatre. It's a great little space. A nice 50 seat theatre that has just been freshly renovated. I must admit that I don't know how well I am going to do as a Stage Manager. It seams to require paying attention to a lot of things. (A skill that I sometimes am not in great supply of.) Things look pretty good for the show to be a success. Apparently tickets that were released to one online ticket broker have already sold out through the month on January. I can't believe how successful this weird little show appears to be. It is really refreshing to know that someone actually is interested in seeing a show I am involved in.
I will say, that in spite of how much I dislike the cold, December is one of my most favourite times of the year. Thanksgiving kicks off the holiday season and work slows to a crawl. Which is great for blogging. Soon I get to go back to the B-Lo for Christmas and I really can't wait. It's been a bit to long since I've seen my family so the days can't pass fast enough. This Friday we are having a bowling party for work which should be LEGENDARY!
On other fronts, my video game time recently is still being dominated by Team Fortress 2. I really havn't found a compeling reason to put it down yet. It easily is my game of the year. I've started to branch out into a few other classes besides Medic. Recently I've been trying to play as the Spy a lot. It's a very interesting change of playing style. You certainly need to rely more on being sneaky. On the DS I also recently picked up one of the Pheonix Wright games. It's a pretty funny game, but I feel stupid, because I am so stuck on one part and I can't figure out how to get past it. I thus far have resisted the urge to look on line for cheats. I feel like I ought to be smart enough to figure out what to do on my own.
Well, I think I am going to go now. Perhaps I'll work on a new "Where's Donny."
