When you've gone over something AGAIN and AGAIN and AGAIN and AGAIN like I have, certain questions get answered, OTHERS SPRING UP! You mind plays tricks on you, YOU PLAY TRICKS BACK! It's like you're unraveling a big cable-knit sweater that someone keeps on knitting and knitting and knitting and knitting and knitting and knitting and knitting..."

theatrical weekend

went on for my actor last night and friday. it was a little nerve racking at first, but it was fun and it went well. i remember why i got into this theater mess in the first place. b/c it's the rush you can't get anywhere else. saw Streetcar named Desire on Saturday and actually quite liked it. john c reilly is an excellent actor who i got to see do some excellent acting. odd choice for stanley, but hey. what a pleasure to see that play done so well and in its entirety. makes you remember the play is a star, not just brando and leigh. and my friend in the cast mentions me in his bio. my broadway debut!!! had first readthru of the play i wrote on sunday. needs some work but it's exciting. for all the grousing that i do, i realized yesterday that i get to be an actor, playwright and director in NYC and that's something to be grateful for.
boyznite was very fun last week. crowded. check out jon's blog http://www.thejonblog.com/knit/ for more details and an interesting poll of a question that came up (so to speak). finished the front of the loop stitch pillow (which looks alot like a shag rug). the back, which is a bias garter stitch is my portable project. my home project is the branching out lace scarf from the new knitty http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEspring05/PATTbranchingout.html . am a laceaphobe so this is good practice. i think i've gotten to understand the pattern after two tries and four repeats of it. it's actually starting to look like the picture! when i'm done with it, i'll wrap it around a vase. i'm completely obsessed by it so it's not the greatest netflix watching project.
