Early September

September 1, 2009

We are currently living in a telephone-less, internet-less hell. Damn you, phone company. Apparently they won’t even be out to see what’s wrong with our line until a week from tomorrow. Damn you, phone company.

So anyway, we’re moved. Big shout out of thanks to the A-Train for coming to help us out on Saturday. All in all, it wasn’t too bad; we’d gotten all the big stuff moved and unloaded by 12:15pm, and after a tasty pizza lunch the Jeanners and I spent the rest of the day cleaning our old Charles Village place. Which took awhile. We’re not tidy people.

Then when we were all done we decided to go out for dinner in Hamilton (our new neighborhood) and we walked to the Hamilton Tavern, which isn’t too far from our new place. We had a damn tasty meal, and then got caught in a hug rainstorm on the walk home. Got tremendously soaked. The rest of the night was uneventful until we were awoken at 1am by two ladies arguing out in the street in front of our house. Damn you, phone company.

Sunday we went to a CSC gathering down at Ian’s house, which was pretty great. A perfect day to spend outside, lots of cute babies, and I didn’t get painfully and obnoxiously drunk.

Had a production meeting tonight for Julius Caesar. Work on the show seriously begins next week.

Still no word on the house.

Here are some interesting things:

1. At two separate times today, I seriously thought I might have shat in my pants. Once this morning as I was leaving for work, and once this afternoon while I was preparing to leave work. Both false alarms.

2. The other day I saw a guy with copious amounts of ear hair. Veritable tufts. It looked less like hair growing out of his ears and more like he had stuffed wads of hair into his ears for hearing protection.

3. This afternoon I drove to the Julius Caesar meeting on the highway, with the windows down, blaring first Phoenix’ “Rome,” and then Phillip Bailey/Phil Collins’ “Easy Lover.” Both were awesome in their own way.

I want to get caught in your hug rainstorm.
