I'm busy. But at least it's 'happy' busy, not 'kill people because I'm so stressed' busy.
Here's another quick recap. Sorry no scintillating prose today. Of course, one could argue that I've never really provided that. If one wanted to get bitch-slapped.
Saturday - Our rugby game against Danbury. We lost 42-10. This is absolutely amazing given the point spread the last two times we played them. We will be having our first rugby union win some time this year. I hope it's this coming Saturday. Drink up at the Eagle. Fun.
Sunday - Errands, laundry, all the other fun stuff that I've put off for ages. Got together with Frank to write, but due to my tight schedule, all we did was chat. Very nice. Afterwards, I went to see (hear?) the Red Bull Theater's reading of The Knight of the Burning Pestle by Beaumont and Fletcher (a couple of Shakespeare's contemporaries). I studied this play back in grad school and was really psyched to see/hear it performed.
It was a brilliant production with remarkable cast. Go to their website for more information.
This is part of a weekly series of play readings. This Sunday's production will be Women Beware Women by Thomas Middleton. Can't wait for it. If anyone wants to go with me (I was all alone for Knight), let me know.
Monday - Painbringer, PT. Work. Home. Work on stuff for my not-for-profit. Work on stuff for the other not-for-profit. Musical Monday at Splash with a couple of rugby buddies. Sweet!
Tuesday - Not feeling up to snuff. Call in sick. Sleep. Sleep. Sleep. Get up. Go see Shaun of the Dead, despite my zombie issues. Hilarious and scary. Well worth seeing, especially in the theater. Come home. Cook dinner (Sweet Asian Chicken with rice). Cook ham (something for sandwiches this week). Sleep.
Wednesday - Painbringer, PT. Work. Invited to board meeting for the other not-for-profit. Get asked to join board, which is very, very cool. And hopefully won't be too stressful.
Today - Work. Work on my n-f-p (I think I have a name for it). Work on the other n-f-p. Now it's time to go home. Maybe go to the gym. Maybe not. We'll see.
Well, that's basically it. Tomorrow night, some of the ruggers and I will be heading to Marie's Crisis Cafe for a pre-game sing-along. Nothing really gets one psyched up for a game like showtunes, right?
Everyone is invited. We'll be there at 8 p.m. (which really means 8:30 or so).
Also, our game this weekend is against Suffolk RFC. If you're out on Long Island and would like to watch us play, info is on our website.
