And so forth.

After some initial resistance, based primarily on the fact that I am here to learn how to make films and not how to be in films, I have decided to act when people here want me to act.  I have always enjoyed acting, I seem to be relatively good at it, and I doubt that I’ll have the opportunity to act as often as I will here.

So, with that decision made, I am acting in two films over the next two weeks.  One of them is a fairly straightforward narrative about a brother (me) and sister (strange and alluring young woman) with a "close" relationship, who decide to investigate a piece of their family’s past after the death of a pseudo-relative.  The other is an experimental film based loosely on the Beatles’ "All You Need Is Love," wherein I fall in love with an imaginary woman who lives next door with a giant cat.  A rehearsal for the latter was held today on the roof of a downtown building — I screamed and saw a blimp.

If it wasn’t for the acting, I don’t think I’d be feeling as overwhelmed with work as I am… no, wait, I take that back.  I’m busy, and busy is generally better than bored, so I’m not complaining.

Umm… it was ninety degrees here today, leaving me with no choice but to use the air conditioning in April.  Air conditioning!?!  April!?!  Ninety degrees!?!  Pudding!?!  Donkeys!?!  Purple toilet paper!?!  Fu Manchu!?!  Norway!?!  Ziploc!?!  Chicken sandwiches!?!

And so forth.
