answers to polite questions

I am overcaffeinated and undermotivated.  Thus, BLOG TIME!

So, lately older married people are like… “How’s married life?”  And I’m like, “awesome.”  Sometimes, when I feel like telling the whole truth, I say, “I married THE MOST AMAZING MAN IN THE WORLD!” And I really wanna ask, “how’s your married life?”  But that sounds awkward.  I mean, nobody asks you that anymore when you’ve been married 20 years.

People also ask, “how’s the house?”  In case you were wondering, I’ll tell you.  The foundation and roof are quite stable.  I like all of the walls, though there are no pictures on them yet. I’m still figuring out which light switches do what. It’s a little messy.  I still haven’t unpacked 12 boxes that are sitting behind the sofa.  We ought to invest in bookshelves. I don’t dust and that’s ok.  The music room is doing particularly well, though.  I like that question.  I can give good,  concrete answers.

Then people ask, “what have you been up to?”  And I say, “work and stuff.”  And they say, “ahh… yeah. me too.” And then we’re both terribly bored with each other. But here’s the real story:

I’ve been…
hanging out with my man
teaching some classes
rewriting certain scenes from “The Pastor.”
planning the spring theatre class schedule and curriculum (get excited)
developing an arts mentorship program for advanced students (basically, everything I wished for when I was 17)
picking an elementary/jr high musical (get even more excited)
taking voice lessons again
learning about synthesizers
praying about “church” and “community” and what that means for us.
reading Pagan Christianity, The Second City Improv Handbook, and The Tipping Point.

Anybody want to tell me what you’ve really been up to?  Because I bet your work or school is more interesting than you think.

And now a delicious quote for your consideration:

When you break the big laws, you do not get liberty; you do not even get anarchy. You get the small laws.” – G.K. Chesterton.

It has nothing to do with the rest of my post except that it is quite true.

  1. So, I read this over, and my favorite part is you learning the synthesizer.
    I’m a Electronica freak…thus a synth is my favorite instrument.

    What’ve I been up to:
    I’ve personally been working a lot, and playing video games.
    …and I’ve been remastering music for this DJ (Electronica Musician) who’s just recently brought me on as his remaster-er. lolz
