"Short" Spin

This week's topic for The Spin Cycle is Most Embarrassing Moment. Not that I wasn't embarrassed during this moment— but it reminded me of the time I got "caught with my pants down"…

Me as Judge Wilson— who couldn't trust a guy like that.

I was playing Judge Wilson in the musical 1776 and was getting fitted for my costume during one of the rehearsals. I was trying on the pants I would wear in another room when I heard that my scene was coming up. I must admit, I have been comfortable wearing boxers on stage since I played Tony in West Side Story— so going on without pants was not a bother. I didn't want to miss my entrance— so I skipped putting my pants on and went straight into the rehearsal room wearing my thick red and white striped boxers.

Being that the show was a comedy, I tried my best to stay in character and not crack up. This was especially difficult since I saw the rest of the cast who was not in the scene trying not to laugh as well. But the real kicker was when the person who played Ben Franklin shouted out "Hey Martha… I have a great idea for a flag" to which the entire room broke out in laughter and the scene had to stop.

Ever since that time, whenever I wore those boxers I had to giggle a bit.

I need a little push

I have been trying to get back on the bike and start writing more in my blog. I know that before my hiatus I had a lot of ideas that I was working on, so it isn't that I don't have anything to say. I still have ideas— but lack the motivation to put what is stuck in my head down on paper (or on the screen).

Here is a list of topics that I have been pondering as of late:

  • Ancient Spirit/
  • Being interesting by posing interest/
  • Climatology and ranges of things/
  • Conceptual Learning/
  • Follow-up/
  • Friendship Card/
  • Giving credit where credit is due/
  • Initiative/
  • Initiator vs wall-flower/
  • Inter vs Intra/
  • Intrapersonal Relationships/
  • Motion and Position/
  • Social Evolution/
  • Spiritual Callousness and Suppleness/
  • State of Equilibrium/
  • The ones we love and the ones who love us/
  • The Up, Down, Out, To, and For of looking/
  • Things take time to do/
  • Waves and synchronization/
  • Who, What, Where, When, Why, and How we ARE/

If any of these topics sound interesting, let me know and that way I will feel more obligated to oblige. Since I sometimes speak simplistically and without courteous clarity, if anything seems confusing, feel fee to ask and I will explain.

Is there anybody out there?

My apologies for putting the Pink Floyd song in your head…

I have noticed that a lot of the people who used to follow my blog no longer write on their own blogs. I am curious how many people still read. I know this seems selfish, but if you can let me know you are here by commenting, I'll appreciate it.
