the future! the fabulous future!

So the present is a bit hard for me, and I'm self-medicating in the finest ways I know: endorphins and gin. Six days a week I've been going through a grueling workout at my gym, lifting weights and doing lots of cardio, and it has a huge impact on those around me. "Have you been to the gym yet?" inquires the Sober Husband over the phone. "I think you should go to the gym." Evidently I'm much more pleasant and relaxed on my gym days, and I have to admit, endorphins make a person feel perkier. [It's time to rewrite the description of this blog, since for the past eight months, I've been working out like a fiend. I get enough exercise for 2-3 people].

 I'm also looking to the future. Burning Man is at the end of the summer, and it's a wonderful, crazy relief from everyday life. And! The Aurora Theatre in Berkeley is putting on a play by one of my two favorite playwrights next season. June is a long time away, but a Neil LaBute play is worth some anticipation. I could use a few things between now and Labor Day, as well as between Labor Day and June, for purposes of anticipation. Help me out with some suggestions in the comments for Things To Hang On To See (flying cars? Zombie apocalypse? Election of Iris ├╝ber Alles as president?]

"[You] get enough exercise for 2-3 people". Good -- you are covering for me, I presume? Glad somebody is......

I've been wondering how you've been doing. I'm so very sorry about Al.

I hope your existence improves soon---at least you can take solace in the fact that you are an excercising machine now. The 2-3 people will have to also include me. ;)

Personally I am looking forward to fresh blueberries and cherries at the farmers market and to the next Rick Riordan book (out in the fall).

HTH- Thx for exercising for me!
