Dear Charlie:

Holy crap! It's July!

A few random drive-by thoughts, without any bothersome attempt at logical order:

1. My beloved sister got me addicted to "hidden object" games when I was at her place last time. I love these things. Could play for hours. Not good when I have writing to do, work, and now a probable significant role in a local theater production to squeeze in. Not to mention a quilting project that does sort of have a time limit.

2. One of the games I'm so addicted to is PuppetShow: Souls of the Innocent". It's a beautifully twisted game where demonic and disturbingly humanoid puppets run around stealing souls at the behest of their wicked and selfish puppeteer, blah blah. The point is that at the beginning of the game, you get a crowbar. Man, I used the hell out of that crowbar.

3. I mentioned a significant role above, right? No details today, but I've been invited to the first read-thru on Tuesday, so I'll be thrilled to affirm my information then. Even if I don't get the suggested role, I'll still be happy. Hey, never expected to do more than set painting, so woot!

4. And just how does a night job go with two months of rehearsals, you ask? Good question. In other news, I had a great interview Thursday morning. I hope hope HOPE I get that job. It's a day job, office-y but completely different from the last one. Risk management. It's part time to start, but some benefits still apply, and I still get holidays and whatnot. Plus, they want it to be full time eventually, and I'm all for that. It sort of combines the stuff I liked about being a paralegal (without having to work for lawyers) and the stuff I liked about being a medical records clerk (without having to be a medical records clerk). What could go wrong? Heh. Heh. Ugh.

5. Oh, yeah! At the beginning of the PuppetShow game, you are menaced by a demented puppet. Unsure what to do and with Joely looking on, laughing, I... thought like myself. I hit it with the crowbar. Whaddya know, but it worked. Funny part of that story? At the end of the game (no spoilers, I hope!), you are menaced by another demon puppet. So... whaddya gonna do?

All together now, boys and girls.

Think like Geeb!

That's right. A-plus to you all. Whenever you find yourself in a twisted hidden object game being menaced by freakish nasties, always think like Geeb. Hit it with a crowbar.

Let's see. I think that might be all my news for now. I do have some reviews to link, but I gotta leave for work in about two minutes, so I'll link 'em up when I get home. For now, I think the above randomness oughtta do.

OH! One more!

6. Trade your samurai for a ninja. I'm seriously. My samurai wasn't working out for me, so I gave into the flood of ninjas and caught one, and... yeah. MUCH better luck. And so much more fun, once you teach them not to steal all your left shoes and turn all street signs upside down.

Or at least the street signs that pertain to you. Ahem.

Work! Gotta run!

That sounds an awful lot like Hell to me...or just another day for the bigshot politicians in Washington, heh.
