Still... nothing I'm procrastinating... All I've finalized is where we'll be living; some
large apartment near "the meadows" with an extra room where my dad can
stay if he visits. I hope he does. If my bk spot begins running soon,
perhaps jessie can come and visit for a week, too.
It's all fucking moot if I don't write this thing.
We leave in 30 days or some shit.

carving away There is so much to cut and so much that I want to keep. I find myself cutting all of Victor's stuff and being "precious" with my stuff.
It is Byzantine and unwieldy.
I look to the show we have now as a model of near perfection, which is what lazy people do. There is a great structure in the show now that I need to replicate for the longer version. The big annoying thing is that the longer version will not actually be any longer. It needs to contain more. That's what's longer.
I may end up pulling a Michael Moore and switching shit around chronologically, even though it's not true so it will make a better show.
Only 6 more weeks or something.
Sending this via email doesn't seem to be working. That blows donkey cocks.

Here we go Today, I shelled out a couple of grand for plane tickets for me and
victor from LAX to Edinburgh. It has begun. We'll be leaving in about
six weeks and a lot of me is completely not looking forward to being
gone for that long. I will miss my new wife and I will miss the United
I'm sure that there will be nightly "The United States Sucks My Ass"
harangues from various drunken theater types. I think that's what I'm
looking forward to least. Let's pick on the Yanks. It's easy, and if
they defend their country, we can call them names.
Anyway... After we get back from Scotland on the 1st, we have a few days
to rest and get ready for the show at sacred fools which begins on the
5th. Though no one's officially announced it.
The most important thing is that I don't have the script yet. I have the
version we've been doing since last year, but that's just the first
month of the correspondence and there is sooo much more.
I am procrastinating. I am good at that. Very good.
I have been meaning to work on the thing all day today and have managed
to find other things to do instead.
Ahhh. Writing. I've missed it so very, very much.
Jon Keyes sent the article from the London Times:
http://www.spamscamscam.com/include/times_online.php and that is fucking
cool. Very fucking cool.
I need to find out if donations to Sacred Fools can get back to me
somehow to pay for all of this.
