A Shoggoth on the Roof?

Sounds crazy, no? But as the little village of Arkham, Massachusetts, suffers through social upheval, the townspeople struggle to maintain ancient beliefs in the face of modern pressures. In this super-sized world premiere musical parody, characters from H.P. Lovecraft's eerie cosmic fictions (such as "The Dunwich Horror", "Herbert West -- Reanimator", "At the Mountain of Madness", and "The Call of Cthulhu") find that balancing pagan rituals and 20th-century social mores is just as potentially cataclysmic as keeping a shoggoth (a prehistoric, protoplasmic creature) perched precariously on your roof. At least Tevye's enemies were human; Arkham's are omnipoTENt!

Opens Autumn 2003. And no, they're not kidding!

Total System Shutdown in Five, Four, Three...

"Can you come into this meeting at 2:00 for a few minutes?" I knew when I heard those words, there was going to be trouble.

There was. Ugh. I ended up missing Kung Fu due to getting out of work late. I hate meetings. :P

Also, we could only find one scanner in Fairfax that was of sufficient size to scan my strips, and it was $250. So I've got to decide if I want to order a new lamp for $27 and be out of commission for a week scanner-wise, order a new scanner from PC Warehouse for $150 and possibly have it Friday, or go back to Micro Center and walk home with a scanner for $250.

Anyway, I'm going to try to take a quickie nap now, then get up and do a workout on the Bowflex to lift my spirits. I may not be able to scan, but I can still draw, and I have a long to-do list that needs emptying.

Mmm ... Bowflex :)

Well, the nap didn't exactly go as planned ... I basically meditated for 20 minutes, but that was refreshing in its own way. But, as I've commented before, a workout really makes the difference. :) Much better now.

Except now my triceps are sore and I don't feel like drawing. ;P Oh well, I'll just take the night off and relax, then!
