Monday is the New Tuesday

Remember how I said I was going to stop assigning myself projects until I could handle them? That's one of those things that I say knowing I don't mean it, kind of like "I'm going to be more productive this year" and "I swear to God I will never drink again." I got an e-mail about cold readings for the campus production of the Vagina Monologues today. I love the show, and although I haven't been onstage for years, I secretly miss it.

"Andy," I asked, "I'd be crazy to add another activity, right?" Knowing something was up, he asked what activity. "Talk me out of auditioning for the Vagina Monologues," I said.

"Actually, I think you should go for it," he replied.

One reason I love my first mate so much is that he realizes that half of the time I ask to be talked out of something, I'm really waiting for someone to talk me into it. He reserves the right to talk me back out if I can't handle the schedule, but as it stands, I have an audition on Wednesday or Thursday. Wish me luck and judgment, people. God knows I naturally lack both of them.

If I had a nickel for every time I said I'll never drink again, I'd have fifty cents.

Good luck with your projects; you have the mettle to see them through awesomely.
