Updates at the Ass End of the Two Thousand Eights

Well, I haven't blogged here in a while. Writing, directing, and producing this play is consuming my life, and it may have something to do with the fact that I've never really done all three of those things. We just posted our second webcast video, and I think you'll get a bang out of it. I also just posted another journal on the site about Jack Frost trying to f' up my shit, and that should go live any minute. It's been a lot of work, but it's really exciting. I hope to have at least 2 of my 7 readers make it. You know why I have no readers these days? I don't comment on other people's blogs anymore. I'm so sorry about that. I will try to make the rounds while I'm off of my real job for the next two weeks.

In other news, Gancey Girlfriend is in another state with her family for Christmas. We thought it would be a good idea to do a Separate Ways (yes, like the Journey song) Christmas, since traveling to both would be an impossibility. Well, as it turns out, being totally alone for Christmas was depressing, but having someone and not being able to see them is way, way worse. We'll have to muddle through somehow . . .

What are my Seven Readers doing for NYE? I'm spending it at a small gathering at a couple's house in a remote suburb where I spent this Halloween and this NYE back when said couple lived in Chicago proper. In years past I would have rather drank 25 vodka red bulls at some crowded bar with a bunch of young idiots. This year an intimate gathering sounds good, especially since I'll be with Gancey Girlfriend, my Heterosexual Life Partner (who I just did a blog about on the Liars Club Blog), and a good friend who moved away, an experience I wrote about here. He actually inspired the whole gancing phenomenon for those of you who know what that is.

Well, happy holidays to all of you. I'm going to pass out, get up early, buy a bunch of crap at Toys R' Us for my nephews, drink too much wine with my old man, drive out to my sister's, wake up the next day, and see what Santa brought my nephews. Jeez, I bet the oldest one doesn't even believe anymore. I hope he's one of those cool big brothers who keeps the younger ones believing. I know I'm that type of guy . . .

Sounds like you have some good plans, even though the GF won't be there. I'll be in Belize for NYE, have a good one!

Drunken Chud said...

Here's wishing you well with that whole legitimate theater thing. I remember there was a time once when I also tried, but then I learned giving up was so much easier.

New Year's Eve is always a cluster eff because it's rookie night at every bar in town. I'm sure I'll end up toe up on the floor in one of them, as is my wont.

Hope Christmas wasn't too lonely. I think everything was going great until I screwed up the peas! :)

Dr. Kenneth Noisewater said...

'Nut: Belize sounds nice. Chicago is cold and shitty these days. My car keeps getting stuck in the snow. "Lucky!!"

Chud: The play is January 9th through the 11th. Www.woodsugars.com for information. If a Chud were in the audience, I'd say the whole thing was a success.

Pistols: If you end up drunk on the floor, just don't try eating a cheeseburger cause you're daughter will get it on tape and put it on youtube.

Anon: Sis, it wasn't lonely at all cause I was with you guys, but the peas did fucking suck. Real bad.

Drunken Chud said...

heh, her peas, the gift that keeps on givin.

JerseySjov said...

haha chud, "her peas" nice one.

i'm going to be in caribbean for nye!

i only have a few people who read and comment on my page, and it's def bc i can't be bothered to read any more blags than i already do.

Dr. Kenneth Noisewater said...

Chud: I wonder if there's ever been any misunderstandings like that . . .

Jov: Glad I'm one of the only ones you read! Hey, you enjoy that Caribbean. "Lucky!"

Zen Wizard said...

I hate to say what I will be doing for NYE because I don't want to be a buzzkill.

radioactive girl said...

I'm still trying to figure out if I can get to your play or not. My girls have a swim meet that weekend, and I'm not quite sure how to be a good mom and ALSO go to the play. I will try to figure something out though.

Dr. Kenneth Noisewater said...

Zen: Come on! Tell us! You won't bum me out. I'm sure I've done worse.

Radio: I would say bring the kids, but it has some four letter words. Not a lot, but enough.

Heff said...

My New Years Resolution is to continue drinking. Anyone care to join me ?

Zen Wizard said...

@chud--The election kept you from commenting?

Were you running for sheriff?

(Visions of making Sheriff Joe Arpaio look like a pussy...)

I have neglected my doctoral thesis so I will be TYPING on NYE....and I won't stop typing till approx. March 2009...

Drunken Chud said...

@zen well, in short yes. no i wasn't running for office, but i didn't really read or comment on a lot of blogs because i didn't want to get into fights on the intarwebs. not that i was afraid of losing but because i was already sick of all the debates i had with empty headed followers that had my blood pressure up already.

oh, and ken, shoot me an e-mail if you get this tonight, i will be in chi-town tomorrow (nye) and then leaving after i get done cheering on my wings at the winter classic.

Dr. Kenneth Noisewater said...

Heff: Mine is kind of the opposite, but best of luck to you! Keep rockin'!

Zen: Good luck with doctorate! Dr. Zen!!

Chudly: I love when my comments section turns into a dialog between Chud and Zen. I'd be hard pressed to find two funnier fellows, so I can't say as I mind.

Sorry I missed you, man! Let me know the next time you're blowin' through town. You could have came to my NYE party, but I wouldn't have remembered it. Another time, I hope!

radioactive girl said...

Just wanted to not forget to say break a leg this weekend. Not literally please, just in the theater sense of that. I won't be able to make it but I really wish I could and that has to count for something, right?

Mr. Shife said...

Well good Doctor I wish I could make it to your play but I am under house arrest by the fat basset. He is under the weather and I have to let him in and out to pee since he can't make it through his doggie door. And I am really not ready to let him redecorate our carpet with his urine. Anyway good luck with everything and look forward to hearing how it turns out. Happy New Year you magnificent bastard.

Ms Smack said...

I knew you were a spunk...

Dr. Kenneth Noisewater said...

Radio: Sorry you couldn't make it, but it's nice that you tried. : )

Shife: Fat Basset Hound. I like that . . . Happy NYE to you, too.

Smack: Thanks?
