Today is the Greek Festival of Maenads.
It was recently brought to my attention that, as of late, in general, I haven’t been my “jovial” self – more withdrawn and sullen. A phase I guess. We all have our phases and assorted masks. Jovial Josh got a lot of play during college because Sad Withdrawn Sullen Josh got way, way, way too much play time in the years preceding and I was making up for lost time, balancing the books. Sometimes I have to fill out the black clothing right, make use of the Byronic accessories. Just a phase.
But hey, fun times in Eureka and improv (so I guess I better be jovial). From there, who knows…maybe Impishly Mischievous Josh or Carefree Josh or the rarely seen Pissed Off Josh…Aqua Josh, Kun-Fu-Grip Josh, Night Vision Josh, Camo Josh…
I noticed that, but you told me it was just lack of sleep on a particular day… so it’s an all-out phase now? Hmmm…what does pissed-off Josh look like? Dude, you need one of those rotate-and-click heads that that one He-man guy had. Man-at-arms, I think? My posts are beginning to sound like the text message I sent Jake on Saturday. He asked me what it meant, and even after reading it again I wasn’t quite sure.
Sleep deprived posts are great. They have a foggy clarity of vision, full of insanity and gigling truths.
I got your post though. I’m well versed in He-Man metaphors. It’s not man-at-arms though…I don’t remember his name. He had the happy human face, the cold robot face, and the scary reptile face.
i say that your attitude will improve with more rum…so, we should get on that, eh?
he slices, he dices, he makes julian fries!
It sucks that you’re sullen, but you’re listening to Kansas, so here’s a free pass!!
If you recall….
There was a time, perhaps a year or two ago, where I was in the same kind of mood, for quite a while. Happy, Goofy Dave has been in full swing for quite a while, but Stoic, Pensive Dave lurks beneath the surface, as well.
Get out your nunchaku, work out with some angry music for an hour.
I assure you, somehow, it makes everything better.
And if that doesn’t work….
The Pajama Jammy Jam IV is now officially set for April 23, 2005.
Come have some Absinthe and be cool and sullen at the same time. =)
