Regularly Scheduled Reminder That I Do Have A Life Outside This Blog

I didn't post today. You've probably noticed that. I do have a good reason: I was out doing things. Important things that could alter the fate of the universe itself.

...Actually, I was at the TV station. Today was the premiere of the brand new sketch comedy show, "Null and Void." It's similar to the old version of Syracuse Live, which I still work for in its new documentary format, but it's now shot entirely outside the studio, and is dedicated to sketches.

It's. Unbelievably. Funny. These guys are good. And I'm going to be part of it.

You see, right before the premiere, I volunteered to be a writer for the show. I had already worked with most of the cast members/writers last semester on Syracuse Live (more on that here and here; I still can't believe I agreed to be a lounge pirate), so I didn't have to go through any awkward introductions. It went something like this (the following is not even close to verbatim):

JOSH (head writer): Hey man, how have you been?
CD: Not bad. You know, I was going to work with you guys on the new show, but I haven't heard anything from you.
JOSH: Really? What's your e-mail address? I'll add you to the listserv.
CD: Okay. Thanks.

I wish everything in life could be that simple.

Anyway, I now work for 2 shows at HillTV. I must be frickin' insane. This should be a good thing in the end, though. Maybe if I spend enough time around comedy writers, I'll be able to expand my sense of humor beyond satire and monkeys. Plus, I might still get a chance to write the Stuffed Animal Liberation Front sketch.
