Contributing to democracy...

... and my wallet.

Yes, it's blatant. I'm helping the American system and myself at the same time. Go buy one from my store. Fun for yourself, a friend, family member, etc. They're cute and go with your football attire. :)

The pancakes who must not be named...

I spent the weekend in Montgomery, Alabama to speak at the MFA Class of 2008 graduation. It was a good time and I got to see some great friends. I arrived Friday night - late - and almost immediately was swept away to Ihop with Mike, Lynn and Kerrie. Good times were had by all... but I couldn't help but sense that something otherwordly might be in our presence. Not a "wow, Ihop is haunted" kind of feeling, but a sense... a tingling... that danger lurked nearby.

It wasn't until we left that I realized what I was feeling. To the right is my evidence that this bench at Ihop is the "bench who lived." No one else seemed particluarly impressed by this, but I knew. I knew that seven books later, this bench would be a milestone in children's literature.

How many acres is this thing!?

So I went on a true excursion in Central Park yesterday. In all the times I've been to NYC (including living here now) I hadn't ever really explored it. I had of course been to the ball field, and the outer skirts near Columbus Circle... but had never truly plowed my way through thicket and thorn.

I did this time. I only WISH I had a pedometer to know exactly how far I adventured.

If you want to take a virtual tour with me, go check out the pics I uploaded on Myspace. Enjoy... and take a day to go check out this oasis in the middle of the concrete jungle. Kinda amazing!

For Sale...

So, having moved to NYC I am burdened with my 2004 Honda Accord. God Bless Ren for working on selling it for me. But... I don't want to put all the burden on him of course. So, if you're out there in the ether, looking for a fabulous car at a fabulous price CALL ME! :)

Here's the scoop: Air Conditioning, Cruise Control, ABS, Power Steering, AM/FM Stereo with built in XM Satellite Radio (service not provided in the sale), Power Driver's Seat, Power Windows, 6-disc CD changer in dash, Power Door Locks, Dual Front Air Bags, Tilt Wheel, Power Sun Roof.

Give me a shout if you're interested. It is currently in New Orleans in Ren's capable and amazing hands but it can certainly get to you (or vice versa). Enjoy!

The sky is falling...

So a piece of the sky just fell... well, a piece of the ceiling. And I'm so gay that I immediately thought of this classic Golden Girls moment.

And we're back...

So... back to this blog business. I've been in NYC for just almost three weeks now... which is ironically about how long I have not been actively blogging. So updates:

Had a birthday on Sunday... it was great. I spent the day with great friends, had good times, and enjoyed every minute of it. I also got a great care package from Ren today which made me happy and I, of course, showed off to my office mates. Not in the "you didn't get a package so I'm better than you" kinda way... but in the "I'm lucky to have amazing people in my life" kinda way.

Ok, enough sap... we also had our first set of auditions today for UNDERWEAR: A SPACE MUSICAL today. I could only be present for the last hour but I was thrilled to see some great talent come out way. It'll be interesting to see how the creative team makes their decision.

Speaking of auditions, I've been addicted to LEGALLY BLONDE: THE SEARCH FOR THE NEXT ELLE WOODS. It's so juicy and I just can't stop watching. It also makes me want to throw on some pink houndstooth, some highlights (ok, full on blonde) and storm the stage. But... that just isn't reasonable... and they're about to announce who leaves tonight so I gotta scoot! More later!!!

Sorry for the long delay in posting... more details about the new life in NYC are forthcoming. Patience is a virtue... so is internet access. But until I get to that, be sure to check out the new TKTS Booth opening in Brooklyn next week! Enjoy!
