I am missing the monthly dinner meeting of Ilion Little Theatre Club.
OK, I just sat here with my laptop for what seemed like a long time before I typed in the above sentence. Then I backspaced it out. Then I hit “undo” and put it back. Then I sat here and tried to think of another sentence. As you can see, it is not going well.
In my defense, I have not had a post that was purely about How I Can’t Write a Decent Post Today (I just added the word “decent” to that phrase, do you like it?) in a long time. I’m not saying all my posts were decent, and I certainly added in enough whiny excuses for why they weren’t as good as I wished they were. Still, how long has it been since I posted pure foolishness? I’m too lazy to click back to my dashboard and check.
Tomorrow night is opening for Splitting Issues by Sam Bobrick. We had our dress rehearsal last night. It went pretty well. I was glad. I don’t like to invoke that old saw that the worse a dress rehearsal the better the opening night. I don’t want an opening night miracle, meaning I don’t want to NEED an opening night miracle! Well, we don’t in this case. The show is good. I think the audience will get a lot of laughs.
Well, there you go. This post was not pure foolishness; I gave another plug to Splitting Issues at Ilion Little Theatre. That’s Friday and Saturday, Oct. 21 and 22 at 8 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 23 at 2 p.m., at The Stables, 13 Remington Ave., Ilion, NY. Tickets available at eventbrite.com or at the door.
As for this post, I think I’ll slap on a silly headline and call it a Non-Sequitur Thursday.
