State Of The Trout: “Just Thinkin’ About Tomorrow”

Posted in Uncategorized

Hey there, everybody! First of all, the biggest and most heartfelt thank you to everyone who left comments or contacted me via email or social media after my recent post about my mental health. I don’t respond to stuff like 97.4% of the time because I’m seriously overwhelmed by the idea of anyone caring about me, but know that I appreciate you guys and the little community we’ve made here. And I’m on the upswing again. I hope it’s catching, and you all can be, as well.

Second, if you follow me on social media, you know that last week, my daughter and I had a great time auditioning for Annie at Center Stage Theater in Comstock, MI. I’m pleased to report that both of us are in the show! My daughter is in the orphan chorus, and while I got called back for Miss Hannigan, I ultimately didn’t get the part and am playing…


I thought you guys would all get a kick out of that. I’m playing a character named Sophie.

So, if you’re in the southwest Michigan area in July-ish, come see us singing and dancing (the latter of which is a lot harder to do than I remember, but I also weighed approximately one hundred pounds less the last time I had to do it). I’ll put the performance dates, times, and ticket buy links on the “Meet Me!” page as we get closer.

When I was younger, I thought my destiny was to be a singer/actress who dazzled on the Broadway stage. Even though that never came to be, I’m psyched to be involved in community theater again, and with my daughter, who’s doing her first show the same place I did mine way back in 1996! Expect to see some musical theater related posts in the next few weeks.

Onto other news, I think I figured out what was wong with my headsetso True Blood Tuesday will be back this week with a double installment.

That’s all the news that’s fit to post. Have a Troutstanding Monday!

    I don’t normally post but this week I read an erotic novella where a woman’s asshole was referred to as her anal star and I thought that the readership here might appreciate that.

      In the 1990s, there was an Australian band named Chocolate Starfish 😉

      Oh my goth, her anal star? Which is different from her vaginal star, her oral star, her nostral star? For crying out loud, this just insults my intelligence.

      I mean, if you got to name it star, because the word anus is too dirty or whatever, just… ditch the anal. The anus is the only bodily orifice which is vaguely star-shaped anyway.

      But perhaps it’s nktit obvious to everyone? In my native language (Dutch), the anus in erotica is often referred to as ‘sterretje’, which translates to little star. So I might be a bit biased.

    That’s awesome! You and your daughter are going to have a wonderful time! I hope the rest of your family is prepared for non-stop breaking into musical numbers!

    Hooray for you feeling better! And I snickered at the Sophie thing. If those in the audience only knew 😉

    And go you for the mother-daughter activities! I’m looking forward to reading about that. I had a blast reading about the cake-vision the other day, so I’m kinda hoping to read about your daughters opinion as well. And maybe how seeing your daughters first step into theater reflects on your memories when you were her age?

    I meant to reply to your previous message, but I didn’t bc I’ve got my own mental health stuff going on, but I’m so glad things are looking up and I love your blog and your books and I miss you like a real-life friend when I can’t read what you’re up to. 🙂
