I decided tonight to finish the play I started writing. I had reservations about the material having gross elements that might make me look sophomoric, which I am, and then when my director left the state, that gave me an excuse to sideline it. But I can't just let the piece waste away in half-finished obscurity forever. No, I need to produce it in a small Chicago theater to seventy people at best, so that it can live on in finished obscurity!

Tonight I did the character bio for the female lead, which was helpful because I write so poorly for women because I don't understand them and never will. This is frustrating because they seem to have me figured out perfectly upon meeting me. In any case, I think Maya Mayorga Bosley is shaping up to be a pretty rad chick.

I have to study to take a licensing test a few nights a week, but I'm going to try to set aside a night or two a week to finish this sucker up and hopefully take it to the stage before next summer. Anyone know any directors who aren't assholes?

In the meantime, since this shit is likely not interesting to you, here's that picture of a monkey faced piglet.

I'm really curious as to how you found that rather fucked-up pig video.

Heff: A coworker of mine from South America somewhere said to me out of nowhere one day, in his thick accent "Hey, do you want to see a pig with the face of a monkey?" I was like, "Hell yes I do!"
