I'm in my kitchen listening to Jolie Holland while frying a complete package of thick sliced ham (and boiling yams). . . . and before you ask, no, i'm not drunk (i only opened that bottle of rum a minute ago). Miss chaoskitty
is helping. . . from one country away, but helping none the less. . .
i promised an update, and since i have a few minutes of time, here we go:
I have been enjoying some very nice employment from both my home theater (DMT) and also some small stints at Berkeley Rep. Both have been marginally lucrative in the ever-joyous past time of Putting Food on the Table. I've also been working for a private client building her faire booth (all 1000 sq. ft. of it...) I have been taking days off now and again, mostly to just do absolutely nothing besides hang out at home and enjoy a few pints with friends.
I haven't had much time to work on myself lately. . . I am still grappling with the ideas of love and intimacy, trying my best to hammer out something that makes sense and doesn't leak when I throw it in water. I don't need a battleship, I just want something seaworthy. Luckily there have been a wonderful amount of people in my life who'll let me speak to them about things objectively and be my sounding board for things. I am very blessed.
Things at the house (chez chaos we're calling it) have been very wondrous. . . . With Stanley Cup season upon us we've been spending many fine evenings either watching (or in my case listening while carpentering) the playoffs. I swear I've missed the fun and joy of certain sports and Hockey is definitely one of them. There has also been loose talk about getting me out riding on a motorcycle. . . we'll have to see how much the side work pays but it should be an interesting time this spring/summer.
I'm also bartending Absinthe parties again . . . check this out if you're interested in attending the next one: www.absintheparty.com Seems that the first 100 people get in free. . . can't beat that with a stick can ya?
More when the mood hits me. . . . thanks for playing along and reading.
Goodnight, and joy be with you all...
