I went over to Shawn’s last night to pick him & Brad up for a beer at O’Hanlon’s. Upon entering (O’Hans), Carl saw me and called me over. Big hug (in a manly way). Jeanette Stewart was there too. I directed her in the Vagina Monologues a few years back. Another big hug.
Catching up with Shawn and Brad was great. We ate pizza and drank beer. Talked about grown up things like, how to deal with our kids having sex some day in the future. Afterwards we went back to Shawn’s to join Cheryl and Beth.
Table reads in Toronto gave me the idea that a table read with this group might go over alright. We read the latest version of my ‘Dick’ play. I made changes to two scenes in the coffee shop earlier in the night and was keen to hear them.
It was a big hit. Everyone was drunk and had never done anything like that before. I didn’t learn much from the read because everyone was too busy laughing at each other (and the script) for me to really hear the rhythm and pace of the piece. We’re going to try again with a different script on Thursday. I hope we get more laughs with that one too.
Jazzy and I are having a great time too. We just hang out and ‘be’. Lots of laughs, hugs, love and foot rubs. Well… the foot rubs are rather one-sided, but I don’t mind.
One more week to go, and then I’m Toronto bound again. The city is starting to feel like a 2nd home to me. I miss the place, and the people living there. In the meantime, I have a whole lotta Regina to pack in.
