This is my brain on….What?

15 Nov

It has been awhile since I blogged. So I thought I’d throw down a Happy Hour blog.

I am still not drinking, which is a good thing because lately I have become convinced that I do not have even one brain cell to spare. You’ve heard of dragging ass? Well, I have been dragging brain. I am even more disorganized than usual. My mind is all disheveled. I am a mess.

I will not recite a full catalog of my recent moments of mental malfunction, but just to share a few examples: I let my auto insurance lapse
because I just plain forgot to pay it. Fortunately, the insurance company was kind enough to notify the state of Florida who, in turn, was kind
enough to send me a little letter explaining how they were going to go ahead and suspend my driver’s license if I didn’t get myself some
insurance real soon.

Who says the folks at the DMV aren’t helpful and attentive?  Fortunately, I did get that all straightened out.

In other brain-failure news, I am still looking for a CD I checked out of the library before I went to Paris (in June!) and I pretty much
completely misplaced the month of October.

Gay Pride was in October. I was planning to go the very next Sunday when Gay Pride was happening. Imagine my surprise when I looked at the calendar, put 2 and 2 together and realized, the Sunday looming before me was in November. “November,” said I. “Why is it November? I haven’t finished with October yet!”

Well, October was finished with me.

So now it is the beginning of November, but it isn’t because Thanksgiving is next week.

It is a miracle I remembered to vote. That only happened because Florida has early voting and I happened to be in the neighborhood of the
Supervisor of Elections office downtown and saw people standing in line. “Oh, yeah–voting. Let me do that right now!” And so I did.

If I had put off voting until the actual first Tuesday in November, I would no doubt have wandered into the local community center where I am
registered to vote on the day I believed to be election day and found myself crashing some Christmas party for under-privileged kids or
something. “Where are the poll workers?” I might have asked. “You mean the North Pole workers?” the Rent-a-Santa might have replied, Why, my elves are in their workshop making toys for all the good little girls and boys!”

It isn’t 2013 yet, is it?

Actually I know what day it is (give or take 24 to 72 hours) because I keep showing up for work on the appropriate days at the appropriate times. God only knows what I am actually doing when I am at work, but hey, showing up is half the battle,

Also, I have committed to be in a play on November 30th. So far, I haven’t missed a rehearsal, so maybe I am doing better with the whole time thing. I am in a production of 8, which is a dramatization of the court case against Proposition 8 in California that banned same sex marriage. There is a great video of the Hollywood production available on You Tube. The cast is amazing—Martin Sheen, George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Jamie Lee Curtis, Christine Lahti, George Takai, Jane Lynch and others. I am playing the role played by John C. Reilly. It is really a fun part. Our cast is not quite as famous as the Hollywood cast, but they are all amazing, as is our director. I feel very fortunate to be a part of yet another exciting theater project,

Fortunately, the show is done as a reading–meaning the actors have a script in hand. I believe folks in the biz call that “on book.” It is a damn good thing I am playing this role “on book” considering my recent mental lapses. No telling what might come out of my mouth on stage otherwise.

A blog or two ago, I was celebrating the fact that I have just begun my 55th revolution around the sun. Turning 54 didn’t bother me. Really, I don’t feel old at all, Despite the apparent senility, But really, I don’t think I am senile. I just think my brain is just so full after so many years, I can’t quite work my way through the clutter.

That’s what I tell myself anyway,

P.S. If you are reading this blog, then I must have remembered my WordPress password, I will take that as a good sign!

Happy whatever day this is!

    I love your blogs! Don’t worry about being forgetful; I am lately too! It must be a 2012 thing…

    I have the same problem. I wonder where the months have gone. I don’t even enjoy putting up decorations anymore because it seems like I just have to take them down in a few minutes.

    They say time flies when you are having fun, I think it just flies.
