Got a call last night from Tim Murphy. He was wonder how my first day as a non-smoker went and I kinda replied that I'd let him know when I had one.
Okay, so Vicky held onto a couple of smokes for me and gave them to me last night so my first day wouldn't be so bad. She's a gem, what can I say? So, I smoked them with Tim (which will be ironic if I really do quit, seeing as how I had my first smoke with him, too) and that was that.
A lot of stuff has been bugging me lately. I don't know if it's the smoking or what - but I'd guess not since my last cigarette was less than 24 hours ago. I'm feeling antsy - out of place. It's not an unusual feeling for me; it usually comes when I haven't done anything in a while or when I feel I need to do something.
I'd like to act again. Honestly. I'd love to! The problem at present, though, is I just can't find a part. I'm not saying I can't get a part - I can't find one I want to audition for! Things are pretty dry right now... it sucks. I'd like to find a show before the end of the month because theater schedules usually have six weeks of rehearsal with 4-6 weeks of performance. This would put me at the beginning of next year and then I'll be returning to school.
Yep, Vicky is all for me returning and I think it's probably time, too. I don't know how "New Ken" will do, but...
And, that's another thing. "Ken."
I've been going by "Ken" for quite some time now. I'm a bit sick of it. I was "Kenny" until nearly high school. Then, for the past 25 years or so, I've been "Ken". But I started using "Kenneth" a few years ago, in my writing mostly, and I kind of like it.
I don't think I'd mind being "Kenneth" for a while.
Think of it this way. "Ken" was tied to Rosa (one way or another) and smoked. "Kenneth" is married to Vicky and doesn't smoke.
I kind of like the idea... What do you think?
Anyway, if I don't get into a show, I've got a lot of writing projects - mind you, one actually has to commit one's self, you know?
In the meantime, Vicky and I have our first weekend without any plans (in at least a couple of months) coming up in a few days.... Ahhhhhhh....
