For the first time in a week I can kick up my feet and do nothing. I bet heaven is watching Lost season two while eating Campbell’s Bean w/ Bacon soup and wearing basketball shorts.
2. Texas Chainsaw Massacre
- As an “adult”?
- As a child?
- What’s your favorite?
I’m thinking pipe cleaners for the stink lines?
Remember in elementary school when all of the lunch ladies and recess moms would wear oversized Tazmanian Devil t-shirts?
Chances are tomorrow’s show is going to be a spectacular failure, but it’s beyond my control at this point. I’m not going to lose sleep over the fact that the audience will most likely be EMPTY, but instead focus on making sure my three sketches are fan-fucking-tastic.
The cancer benefit went off without a hitch, but for some reason I’ve had a bitch of a time getting performers for this one. Let that be a lesson to you. It is hard to find performers unless they are either getting paid, getting good exposure, or doing it for charity.
The top of my piggy bank says “Invest In Yourself.”
I have been moving nonstop from Friday morning until right this very second.
Get up early, go to Huntington Beach for lunch.
Do stuff with mom.
Drive through rush hour to get back to the theatre.
Work the mainstage, get home late.
Get up early, go to rehearsal.
Go to class.
Go shopping for show.
Go to show.
Put on awesome show.
Wake up to drive back the Huntington. Pick up mom.
Disneyland with Jim, Alison, Megan and Mom.
Leave Disney at midnight. Drop off mom.
Drive home. Get in at 1:30.
Wake up at 8, sit in three hours of traffic to get back to mom.
Go to breakfast.
Take mom to airport.
(I didn’t take my real camera to Disney so I only have cell phone pictures. Good ones will be posted after mom emails them to me)
Willy Wonka (via balltillifall)
***More accurately, Wonka is quoting Gwendolyn in The Importance of Being Earnest. But it’s one of my favorite quotes so I wanted in on the action.
Thanks to everyone who came out and voted for my sketch! I love you and appreciate it! Come see episode II at the end of November!
My mom is in town and will be there.
Come watch my sketch compete at Serial Killers. Then vote for it so it continues on at the following show. That’s how it works.
“The Mysterious Affair at Mr Bendernagle’s Luau”
Written and Directred by Steve Szlaga
One by one they got lei’d. One by one they got slay’d.

THE PREMIERE OF 30 ROCK IS ONLINE. YOU CAN WATCH IT ON NBC.COM RIGHT NOW
I will not be a movie extra because I did not give myself two hours to go less than 20 miles. This city makes my soul ache.
Tomorrow I get to be an extra in the new Judd Apatow movie. I’m not a fan of being herded and sitting around for seventeen hours, but it sure seems better than whoring…or the time I went to a live taping of New Adventures of Old Christine (which is essentially the same thing).
I’m helping Fat Rock put together a screenplay competition for female writers. So far it’s just been going through colleges and getting contact information. I’m down to Idaho and was going through the website of the Journalism Department at University of Idaho when I found this guy.
This is Abubakar. He was the TA in my Communication Theory at Western Michigan University.
Is it weird that I randomly found him, or weird that I actually remember the TA from my Communication Theory class, Spring 2003 at WMU?
I checked my old blog, but apparently I wasn’t keeping up with it last October. Although I did write about seeing Frankie Muniz at work once. So…I guess that’s one difference from last year. Less Frankie Muniz.
Creatively, I’m going strong. I love my UCB classes. I am putting on two shows in the next two weeks. I’ve written a script that’s been optioned by an independent producer and we are working on an animated web series. I’ve decided that I’d rather be creative and funny than have a lot of money.
I can’t really say if my work situation has gotten better or worse. Better because I’m not a corporate slave. Worse because I’m back to a strict diet of turkey sandwiches and wheat thins for lunch and dinner every day.
You need to run a marathon next so you can call it a Meredithon
it’s 6:18am on Sunday. It’s still dark out. and I’m about to make myself run that 5K in an hour. What the eff am I doing to myself?
The best thing about having shitty bosses is eviscerating them in sketches you get to put on stage.
This’ll be good.
Come see it on the 30th.
I want to go camping.
And back to Vegas.
And Northern California
speciflcally wine country
And buy groceries.
I am going to cross off at least three things on my to-do list today.
I have a subscription to Rolling Stone. Why? Well, clearly not because I’m into music…not that it matters because Rolling Stone has pretty much steared clear of that topic for a while. I subscribed because a subscription was on sale on Amazon for five bucks, and if I paid five extra dollars I got free shipping on the stuff I was already ordering.
This pissed me off.
I don’t mind that Rolling Stone has a liberal tilt and supports Obama. So do I. But I can’t believe I’m the only one who takes issue with this cover, considering…
That’s three covers in seven months. There’s a difference between journalism and dick sucking. While I’d certainly prefer more Obama covers to anything Sarah Palin-related (less so for my actual distaste of her and more just because I’m just sick of hearing people talk about the woman), it is important to remember that Rolling Stone should NOT be your social and political reference guide.
