Gilmore Girls

I'm up for a part on the Gilmore Girls. Needless to say, it is EXTREMELY nerve racking. I taped an audition and sent it to the casting director in L.A. My agent seemed happy with the take but I can't stop thinking about it. It's consuming my life. I keep running over and over in my mind whether or not I did it good enough, whether or not I'll get it. I see Rory's face on everything I do, looking at me, judging me. "are you good enough TJ, are you?" I am completely immersed in and absolutely without any thoughts that don't existing within the Gilmorian world.

It is euphoric and terrifying.

My MySpace Profile is Original

My MySpace profile, is totally original. No one has one like it. Never. It's the most original profile on the internet, probably. And I have every reason to blog about it. I was trying to think of how to be more original than anyone else, and then I figured out how, and I did it. Sometimes it just comes easily to me, I have to be honest. Other times it's really frustrating and hard.
I taught a Level B improv class at Second City and it was really fun. I also did a set at Zanies last night and that was really fun. I am of the opinion that Andy Woodhull is a funny guy. He is a comic that went up.
Get on MySpace and verify that my profile is the most original one out there. Also, copy it onto your profile so that you immediately nullify this entire entry in one electronic foul swoop. Interesting the power we have over eachother, isn't it?

your friend,

The Possibility of a Sandwich

Tody is a pretty ordinary day. I walked to work for the seven hundredth time it seems like. I work sometimes during the day at a law firm with a bunch of comedians. I got them jobs when I started here. My boss, Grace Jewell, is a wonderful woman who is wise and funny, and could care less about working here. She is very generous to me, and I'm not really required to work any specific hours.
I seriously considered the possibility of getting a subway sandwich for lunch. The pros are all there: $2.49 daily special price, the healthy aspect of all of the fixings, short distance of commute from office. Why wouldn't I get it? I can't think of any reason. Can you? If I can't find a reason not to, so help me God by 1 p.m. today, I will walk into the Subway on State and Kinzie (abouts) and I will buy whatever sandwich is on special today. I swear it on God's face.
I'm having a party this weekend. I can cry if I want to, according to a song.
I'll go to rehearsal for second city, and a scene I wrote called points may go into the regular running order. We'll see--it needs some tweaking but boy oh boy is it getting laughs. It's my first good crack at a Second City style 2 person relationship scene. I think it's the first thing I wrote that is intended for a second city audience.

I had a really terrible Halloween. I can't imagine why I would want to post that on the internet, but it was AWFUL. Worst one I've had so far. Great. Completely miscommunicated with a girl that I was supposed to be hanging out with, went to a party that my friends weren't into at all, my costume went over much worse than I thought it would, and over all a real bullshit time. I will from now on only go to giant halloween parties at clubs where everything is expensive and I am lost in a crowd of people who are in cliche, hack cosutmes and dancing poorly to music that is appropriately themed.

I did have a great show sunday for the HBO scout for the Aspen Comedy festival and that was good.

Halloween 2005 will go down in my personal history as a bad one.
