Only yesterday did I cancel my registration for the NY08. And that was not easy. I mean, there is no possible way to actually run it, I wasn't in denial about that, but actually pushing the button, well, it didn't feel good.

Next year I can reapply before May 1 and I will be entered automatically into NY09.

Thursday night was the first time in a couple months that I had the time and peace of mind to take another look at the script, and I made several changes. Minor changes. I need major changes. But certain elements came into focus during the original writing process which changed what came before - motivations for running, the status of certain relationships as presented in the show.

ATYD is my second solo performance, the first was I HATE THIS about my experiences with stillbirth. That one was much more accurate, with this one I am taking liberties with my life. It's autobiographical, but I lie a lot. I am meeting with director Ali G. on Sunday.

Not that Ali G., a different Ali G.

I'm relieved. Because, you know, the other Ali G. would be an awful director.

I'm so sorry to hear about the Marathon. I'll call soon.
