I just became a godfather! Little Alicia (hope I'm spelling that right) came into the world yesterday in the wee hours, and proud papa Jim called me shortly thereafter with the happy news.
I'm looking forward to meeting her myself before too long, and keeping my fingers crossed that her parents don't figure out that they given influence over their daughter to an inveterate punster. Heh heh heh.
It's audition time again. I'm in the midst of prepping to try-out for one of my favorite shows of all time, Stephen Sondheim's Into the Woods, this coming week. Once again, I ask you all to keep your fingers crossed for me.
In other god-I-hope-I-don't-get-rejected news, I'm on a mission to get into a rather exclusive club, and I'm hoping this helps. Several months ago I made a brief mention of my wonderful, gorgeous, talented and utterly fascinating friend Jennifer. While at dinner with her a few days back, I found out she's got a "Quicklist" on her PDA where she keeps the names and numbers of all her bestest friends. Devastatingly, I'm not on it.
Since my ego is barely holding up under the weight of my continued unemployment, I know it would be a great boost if I could somehow finagle my way onto that list.
So here's my plea: Jennifer, holder of the Quicklist of Honor and Fame, I humbly beseech you to consider me for inclusion amongst that hallowed roll call of glory. Though I do not deserve it, I appeal to your abundant benevolence and charity, that you may overlook my many faults and grant me this boon.
That enough sucking up for you, Jen? Because I've got buckets more if necessary.
