This weekend, Wendy and I are at the annual TNT conference, held this year in Beaumont. As a part of this festival, our theater put on an excerpt from one of the winning entries for the play writing contest, since we'll be putting on the full show some time in the next year. The play is called "The Lost Tribe" by Jeff Stolzer.

Yesterday, Facebook suggested that I might be interested in becoming a fan of the coffee party. So I checked it out. The name is an obvious reference and counter to the TEA party movement, which is a movement I definitely don't support.

I just spent yesterday evening and most of today at training for the next Houston Presbyterian Cursillo weekend, which will be April 14-18. I'm going to be on the music team. This will be the third time I've served on a Cursillo music team, but the first time that I'm going to be playing an instrument (bass guitar) instead of just singing. I'm somewhat nervous about it.

Well, it's official. As of this morning, Wendy and I are now both on the "South Beach" diet. It felt like we were buying out Kroger's entire produce section last night. I wish we had a more convenient, better stocked produce section near by. That, or I think we need a second refrigerator to store all this stuff! I cooked the first item this morning -- something called a "Cheesy Frittata."

That last video I posted got me thinking -- I think I need to "up the ante" when it comes to my geek factor. Sure, I program computers. I play World of Warcraft. At one time, I even had an official chess ranking (though not a very high one).

Dork, and proud of it. ;)

Wiesenthal Center accuses Presbyterians of declaring war on Israel.
I find this very disturbing. I certainly agree that the Jewish people in general, and the state if Israel in particular, have faced enormous challenges to their existence. But to say that we, as Presbyterians, are declaring war on Israel because of this document is ridiculous!

Wow. The last time I posted something here was when the producers was going on, almost a year ago! It's been so long, I didn't even realize that this site had become infected with a worm. Not that enough people visit this site to matter, but that's pretty bad none the less. Nothing here about me taking up the motorcycle, and nothing about the resulting accident.
As I've been feeling that a little introspection might do me some good, maybe I should see about reactivating this thing. Does anybody actually READ it?

We've made it through the first weekend of "The Producers" at Baytown Little Theater. There was a great deal of doubt among the cast about whether or not we'd be ready in time, but we made it. The show has been going really well, and audiences seem to be receiving it well.
