The October People

Me and Murgatroyd
Last Saturday I helped Cliff Lowe, Tony Morris, Cindy Lowe, and Sean Orlosky tape some scenes for our Halloween show, Chiller Thriller Theatre with Basil Q. Mylk-Bone. The premise of the show is that it is actually a horror movie marathon hosted by Mr. Mylk-Bone (Played by Mr. Orlosky). Our two plays, Cliff's Vampire in the Attic and my Two Guys and a Pearl, serve as the horror movies. Since Sean will be on vacation during the show's run, Basil's bits were recorded to appear on an actual TV that will be played on and off throughout the two acts.

It was a lot of fun taping the host segments and it brought back fond memories of those good, old days when I used to work on my public access sitcom years ago. Plus I got to be the voice of Murgatroyd, Basil's spider co-host! How can you not have a good time with great friends and a spider puppet?

Three Day Weekend

Things I did over Labor Day weekend:

1. I did some housesitting for some friends who were out of town. Besides watching over the house, I took care of one cat, three dogs, six chickens, and assorted fish.

2. I did some work on my play, Two Guys and a Pearl. It will debut as part of the Halloween show, Chiller Thriller Theatre with Basil Q. Mylk-Bone, at the Farmland Center in October. I'm getting closer to the finish line with Two Guys and I'm very happy about that.

3. I broke my friends' futon.

4. I was attacked by a rooster.

5. After my friends came home (They were very understanding about the futon), we ate some pizza and watched some movies. One of the movies was Voyage to the Planet of Prehistoric Women which featured a robot named John, a few leaping lizard men, and narration by director Peter Bogdanovich. Lots of laughs!

6. I slept most of Labor Day away. Thankfully no nightmares about roosters.

7. Found out there's no word for "smile" in Latin.

8. I made a birthday card for my niece Madi who turned fourteen on Labor Day.

Who knows what new adventures will await me as I return to work on Tuesday!
