Dozens of Balls of Paper

During the last couple of hours, I’ve been wadding up pages of newsprint from the local free weekly — packing material for our physically large yet unprofitable eBay sellings. I wound up with inky black hands, but now at least I know the ads of every gentlemen’s club from Glendale to Apache Junction. And how are you?

I’m just writing this because sometimes I have this feeling of futility, like I’m working on a whole lot to accomplish a whole little. So I was thinking it might help if I wrote down the things I accomplished in the last three days — important things, minor things, whatever. Here’s what I came up with:

  • Worked — finished the first draft of a local children’s theatre playbill; revisions on a couple of Viz projects. They’re not done yet, but we’re close.
  • Finished a book — Ethan Mordden’s Make Believe: The Broadway Musical in the 1920s.
  • Played so much of the computer game Alchemy that now I’m seeing colorful zodiac symbols and a disembodied wizard head saying “game over” everywhere.
  • Saw the DVD of an Asian thriller, One Missed Call. It was okay, but we’ve seen so many of these kinds of films that they’re starting to blend together. All Asian thrillers have to have two of these three items : a) modern electronics gone amok, b) dirty, mildewy home or apartment, c) creepy ghost child. If a particular film contains all three (like One Missed Call did), you hit the jackpot!
  • Watched a few repeats from the Benson marathon on TV Land. It was here that I noticed that all Susan Harris sitcoms from the ’80s (Benson, Soap, It’s A Living, The Golden Girls, Empty Nest) have the same look and feel, even down to recycling the same musical cues.
  • Packed up four of the aformentioned eBay sellings, Russel Wright pieces which sold too cheaply and gave me black, inky hands.

    Pathetic? You want pathetic. The High Point of my day (besides MORE RAIN) was doubling up extra grocery bags for recycling.
    Oh, yeah, I put some grass clippings in my mulch pile too.
    Seems like the whole world’s eyes are squeezed shut, trying hard to sneeze,
    but just can’t do it.

  2. Brad, please send some of your excess rain our way. Thank you.
