It's a shame, you know?

How unbelievably nuts I am?

I'm paranoid and constantly defending myself against emotional attack where no defense is needed.

I'm such a fucking baby, it's obnoxious.

And the odd part is that all my life I've dealt with my insecurities with humor and I'm only now discovering that that technique isn't always appropriate.

I really need to grow up.

Anyway, on a lighter note, my next door neighbor informed me that there was a fight in the apartment directly above us last night. The apartment in question is incessantly noisy, so I wasn't too surprised, but I was unaware that actual violence broke out. I asked her if the police had come.

"No, I no call the police. Because, you know, they have a student..."

And she kept reiterating that the apartment "had a student" and she didn't want to endanger said student. I'm assuming she meant there was a child involved, but I can't be certain. Still, child or no child, calling the police wouldn't have been the worst idea on the planet.

Oh, and another thing. Today at my audition, I overheard this actor talking to one of the casting people about his tattoo.

TATTOO DUDE: I told the guy, I said, "Look, I'm a tenacious guy..."

You certainly are.

whoa. the upstairs thing is c-razy.
i guess they took a break from their daily bang-on-the-floor routine to hurt each other? i'm glad i wasn't squatting in the living room during that.

I think you're underestimating tenacity. Maybe if you were more tenacious you wouldn't be such a fucking baby.

Ever think about that?!

Gabe said...

Good point, Davey, good point. If I'm tenacious, you're SAGACIOUS!

Have you seen this?!?!?

It somehow reminds me of your podcasts - the nervous laughter into, "but seriously folks," style.

Now all you need is to get some serious crazy on.
