TMI. That was my brother who said that.

I know, which is what made me laugh. Not much from Len in this interview, unless I was mistaken.

You have a neat family.

Looks like Len didn't show up for that interview event - he's into very very different things now - but I just happened to drop in on my mom and he was talking to her on the phone. I grabbed the phone and asked him if we could get together. I thought I'd run through my play for him. He said he'd look over my one-woman birthday show ("Every Marriage Is a Good Marriage -- Even the Bad Ones") providing I mail it to him on paper, large font, double-spaced so that he can write comments on it.

I thought about kleinbl00's statement, "Don't half-ass anything!" originally thinking I would half-ass this, but now thinking that if I'm going to invite my students and dearest friends and actually do this . . .on August 19 in Ontario, with a preview in Vancouver on Monday, August 7, then . . .

I need to put together clips of sound effects, phones ringing, dial tones, and glass smashing. Do you know anyone with some ease in putting together sounds?

"Don't half-ass anything" also means "don't think for a minute that you can learn an entirely new trade in less than a month."

Do the best of what you can accomplish in the time you have available. "Don't half-ass" also means "play to your strengths."
