silly

current mood: silly

Today I am feeling altogether silly.

I'm also sitting in the office of a client who needs me to complete a certain amount of work that I'm not specifically interested in, but such is the nature of work, I suppose.  

Anyway, that's why I'm sitting here updating my LJ.  I'm killing time for the moment.  

Oh, did I mention that this work that I don't want to do is probably only going to take me 2 or 3 hours today, and I'm obligated to be here for 6 or 7?  I guess that puts the killing time part into perspective.

I guess this whole post would be a lot more useful if I had anything interesting to say or any funny anecdotes to share.  But I've only had one cup of coffee so far this morning and I'm still not really clear headed, so nothing's coming to me.  It's moments like this when I would love to be filling out a survey so I didn't have to try to be creative.  

But on a happy note I was at church in Queens on Saturday morning and I happened to overhear one of their drama people saying that they were working on the "cell phone skit" for this weekend.  That was a skit that I wrote two years ago comparing prayer to a cell phone plan.  It was a really cute idea that was thrown together at the last minute and very poorly executed, and I've never been able to find the time or place to do it again.  But to hear that another one of the churches is going to use it just made my weekend.

It's not every day that I manage to come up with a skit idea from scratch and develop it all the way through to a script and performance.  In fact, most of my skits are based off of other people's ideas, skit concepts from christian drama websites, or adaptations of existing scripts.  So to have one of my few forays into skitting from scratch randomly find a use to someone else makes me happy

boredom

Yay! That sounds like an awesome skit!! I was a salesperson in something a little similar at church a loong time ago. Actually, Yonette was in it with me as the shopper. I want to read yours!!

I think I have a yes/no survey that I can email you. I read it on another friend's blog. You can email me whenever you feel bored in your 6-7 hours today. ...I thought you got rid of clients who obsessed about time blocking your presence. What happened with the disgruntled client? Did the Lord give you an answer?

Did you get my other question about the silver platter? I'm currently obsessing over tracking it down :(
