as the world turns
OK now, really, I have not proposed or promised to make much of this journal but I don't want it to just be a tale of woe and travails. But listen to this, I just get offered a tiny walk-on part in next Saturday's First Annual New York Burlesque Festival and at the same time my ex- finally (after months of me asking and nudging) says yes to my son returning to my custody (doesnt that evoke images of handcuffed prisoner being escorted by deputies).

He will be flying from Japan to NY and the only cheap flight I see on Travelocity arrives at 3pm. Rehearsal for the burlesque bit (just being a male prop) is to be 4:40pm after a meeting a 4pm. The world again successfully conspires against me nearly as successfully as I do against me. Alas, again the spotlights evade me. Too bad. It would have been fun. Then again who knows what changes and excitations may evolve in the next 24 hours. Maybe the travel agent can swing something better tomorrow.

Enough!

I thought i would read through your journal since i had not earlier due to the scary mask...I thought you were some scary death rock satanist or something...books and covers...oh well...but I am looking forward to hearing how it goes with your son..how old is he? how long have the two of you lived apart? I smell an edgy sitcom...bulesque shows at night kid stuff by day...I wish you much luck..tough nuts to crack are the beast ones to eat yum-yum

he's soon to be 15. he was living with his mom for the last 2 and change years. before that he was with me. the marriage ended 5 years ago.

i just showed him your web site and played some of your mp3s. the matches tune reminded him of the scariest movie he saw while watching tv unattended one afternoon years ago. me at work. his mom writing on the computer in the other room.

His movie description and your web site with sounds. lots of noises and images in my brain. better try sleep. in 3 hours halve to get up to go to the factory.

cheers.

Your son is lucky, you sound like a fun father. I bet you have many adjustments coming at you. You are a darling.
