Week 40: Winding down

A light weekend as we start winding down the Sunday classes… Saturday night I had dinner with Todd and we talked about the twins impending arrival amongst other topics. I love getting the time to talk with him because he’s extremely intelligent and it’s always a great conversation. Kudos to Todd for his choice of …

Week 39: Coast to coast

Melinda’s shower was Saturday and it was very nice. Thanks to Lisa for her hard work, I appreciate it. (Don’t forget my JL stuff). I stopped by for a couple minutes at the start and got to see some familiar faces and some old faces, especially Melinda’s friend from college, Jena. I had to buy …

Week 38: Feeling defeated

Note: The week number in titles of my travelogues are about my Second City travels, not the twins. The twins are roughly 6 weeks behind me. Friday brought the inevitable – cleaning out the room that is the soon to be nursery. I couldn’t believe it took that long to empty a small closet, but …

Week 37: Ah, the joys of pregnancy…

Friday, my babies mama went to see her doctor for a headache that wouldn’t go away. Her doctor sent her to labor and delivery for her high blood pressure to be monitored. Around midnight, Dr. Jacobs ended up deciding to hold her overnight to give her shots every hour to try and curb what was …

I’m headed underground

I have been extremely busy lately and I need a break. I had over a dozen auditions the last 3 weeks and 3 bookings last week. I have decided to take advantage of the holiday weekend and stay close to home and recharge. I’ll be out of touch for a couple days catching up on …

Week 36: 2 weeks until the season starts

This weekend started with my Fantasy Football draft at 9:00 am in Denton. I had the #1 pick, so I took LT. It’s always good to see everyone and the season starts in 2 weeks. After the draft, we had a quick lunch at Hooter’s in Denton then I had to rush to Carrollton for …

Week 35: Back to 1

Hurricane activity in the Gulf has sprung bad weather on the Metroplex and this weekend started off with the threat of some severe storms. That’s fine, I’m used to it, but I had a print shoot scheduled for Dick’s Sporting Goods downtown on the top of a parking garage. I had was scheduled to shoot …

Twinfo

My babies mamas wanted me to let everyone know you can keep up with Dirk and LeBron at their website.

Week 34: It can only get better

This week’s travel started just like last week’s, through Austin again. Upon arrival in LA, I headed straight to Sherman Oaks for a lunch meeting with Paul Ryan. I met Paul a couple of years ago at a workshop and we’ve stayed in touch since. I’m going to help him with a redesign of his …

Week 33: Job Opening

What started over a year ago last July is now heading into the home stretch. The final 12 weeks of The Second City Conservatory started this weekend and it started Saturday with this note on my suitcase: Dearest Actor, When I learned that you’re going to be taking the red eye back from Level 5 …

The 2 ends of the auditioning spectrum

On Monday evening I auditioned for a national print ad for a skin care drink. This audition required women to be in a bathing suit for the picture and men in a speedo or briefs. Models would go in one at a time and be photographed in a secured, closed off area. So I waited …

Week 32: When one door closes…

I decided for this week’s trip to take Southwest to LA, and thanks to the genius Wright Amendment here in Dallas, I had to go through San Antonio. As luck would have it, San Antonio was experiencing severe thunderstorms and flooding so I got to land and take off in that weather. Thank you, Congressman …

Week 31: Vested Interest

Saturday night was spent playing a “friendly” game of poker with my friends Drew and his wife heather, Jim, Esteban, Josh, and Drew’s neighbor, Jerry. I was the big winner of the evening and we all decided that we should make this a bi-weekly event. I always love getting to see those guys individually, but …

Week 30: One and done

This weekend was low stress, but high creativity. Yesterday, I spent the afternoon running errands with my driver in the afternoon and enjoying the rare sunshine after several straight days of Noah’s Ark type rain. The evening was saved for the Dallas Desperados arena football playoff game against the Columbus Destroyers. Let me set it …

Week 29: The lady is a champ

(I thought I had published this last week, sorry it’s a week late.) Friday, my driver took us to Austin with my mom, sister and grandmother. We were on our way down for her cousin Jim’s wedding and my mom and sister were going to catch up with an old friend. We had a short …
