All sorts of fun shit going on with me right now. Here's a sampling:
As I mentioned earlier, I wrangled some tickets to this week's Colts game. One of Dee's friends has season tickets - that's where we got our tickets last time we went to a Colts game - and he found better tickets than his regulars. He called up Dee to see if I wanted them. I said yes. Unfortunately, Dee won't be able to go with me because she'll be in Moline with her mom attending a Dancing With the Stars concert (or whatever you call it). Instead, I'll be taking my brother. My favorite part was Drew's tone on his voice mail. He's was shocked that I was able to get playoff tickets in Chicago when he can't even get regular season tickets living in Indy. I'll fill you in on the details of the game when I get back.
I've been good about my resolution to write something every day. Frankly, I think the fact that there's no new TV shows has helped. It's funny that the writer's strike is helping me get more writing done. Some days have been more successful than others, but I've managed to pound a little something out every day. I have a feeling that my weeknights are going to be spent getting out the stubs of ideas while the weekends will be spent fleshing out those ideas. We'll see. I'll keep you updated.
The Sketchfest show I was in went very well. The audience loved it and Dee thought it was the best version of that show that we had ever done (she saw it a few times during the original run). A few of us went out for drinks afterwards to celebrate the good show and my birthday.
I've been busy in the kitchen the past two nights. Last night, I made some baked crusted salmon that Dee and I enjoyed very much. It was a nice change of pace from the crappy food we had been eating over the holidays. Tonight I decided to make some homemade eggnog. I pulled up a recipe from foodnetwork.com and got to work. I enjoyed a cup just before I started typing this. Delicious. So much better than store bought eggnog. If you like eggnog, try it.
I've been reading a book about the Devil. It's called I, Lucifer. It's interesting and clever. Basically, God invites Lucifer to return to Earth as a human to live out his life until the apocalypse. If Lucifer lives a clean life, he can get back into Heaven. If not, a fate worse than Hell. Surprisingly - or maybe not so surprisingly - it is a faith affirming book and has really made me think about the God/Devil dichotomy. I've even had an idea for a sketch thanks to this book. In fact, I'm going to go finish it right now.
My Dad and I had an interesting email exchange about the Presidential candidates. I promised him that I wouldn't reveal the details on my blog, so I won't. However, it was interesting to see that we're both of the same mind on the pros and cons of each of them. Of course, we don't really have much to go on since no one is really saying anything.
I'm sure there's all sorts of other fun stuff happening in my life, but I'm too tired to remember now.
