My Way of LifeI have a boatload of DVD's that I have yet to watch. DVD"s I have purchased myself or received as gifts. There's just not enough time in the day, and even when I do have down time (which lately is more frequent), I just don't want to stare at a television screen, ya know? I'd rather sleep. DVD's on my list to watch any minute now...,
The Brain That Wouldn't Die - I've seen this before on Mystery Science Theater 3000 and even before that. I love the girls at the club the scientist picks up for spare parts. If you click on the link you can see the catfight. Is this an obvious Handbag vehicle or what?
Mulholland Drive- Yep, it's still in the wrapper. I saw it in the theater and was so tired that I fell asleep off and on. What I saw I loved. I bought the DVD so I could really study the film and look for clues, etc., This was about 2 years ago. I love the women that Lynch casts.
Charade- Tim and Timmy got this for me for my last birthday. This is one of those that I'm sure I'd like but have yet to open. Funny, I'm not apeshit about Audrey Hepburn like all the other queens are.
Stranger In the House (now titled Summer of Fear)- I just got this last week. Our discussion of ABC Movies of the Week led me to this film thanks to Kodeski and Herrera and I was shocked to see it was available on DVD. It was directed by Wes Craven (I know, so?) and features a badly permed Linda Blair telling just everybody how EVIL the new visiting cousin is. Of course, nobody will listen to her. This makes me want to get Roller Boogie if only to envision Ed Jones in lycra and roller skates.

My Way of LifeIf a fag screams in the woods while he's trying to use his new laptop has he made a noise? So, I got my laptop today and it came with practically no instructions. It was already loaded with all the features but I don't know how to burn a DVD or save it or whatever, and I don't know how to transfer my iTunes to the new laptop or connect the printer via the wireless network card I got. I think Dell assumes people should know all this by now. There is an owners manual on the computer- well not on top of the computer but inside...you know what I mean. Damn it, for what I paid I want a glossy book with pretty pictures! And this fucking tiny keypad is annoying and I keep hitting the cap button, and I am not crazy about using my index finger as a mouse. This is supposed to be a joyous occasion and it's just me getting mad because I don't know something. I hate learning. My life is HELL! Why can't everything be as easy as writing a parody?

My Way of LifeDamn, the weekend is almost over. I've had better Sundays. We had planned on attending a party but Mr. Sinus had other plans for me. Friday myself, the old man, Steve Hickson, Ed Jones and BC Kalz saw Ms. Veronica Scheaffer in The Glory of Living at Profiles Theater. The show is extended and one can see why if they attend. The cast is wonderful. Some great acting in a very intimate space which makes it all the creepier. The setting was supposed to be a trailer park but it reminded me of many crappy apartment I partied in in the 80's, right here in Chicago. I'd never been inside the Profiles space. It's SMALL. They had a very narrow little door that I just had to go through so I could walk through it. It was sort of a scary white trash Pee Wee's Playhouse set. Veronica was amazing, but I knew she would be. Afterwards we went out and gabbed and gabbed and gabbed and I got my Veroni-calendar!
Saturday...,I went to Aria Salon and BC done did my hair in a manner that I couldn't possibly replicate at 7:30am but it was nice to have a daring new do for a few hours. Steve Hickson came over and we cuddled on the couch together and watched A Little Thing Called Murder on Lifetime. Miss Judy Davis did not disappoint.

My Way of LifeSo, there's this dog that's up for adoption. He's an 8 year old blind poodle that needs a home. I'm told he's fully housebroken and he's adorable. The fact that he's 8 years and blind makes me want him because he has a couple of strikes against him and well, I love the underdog. And this fella literally is an underDOG. Our building doesn't allow pets and even if it did I'm not too sure I'm ready to adopt. My heart wants to but the busy life of NFP theater can make for many a nights away from home and that might not be fair to the doggie. Need a dog?
Last night was pretty uneventful. I went to the grocery store, saw a pretty unspectacular Law and Order and worked on my script. I came up with a new beginning/narrative so that was exciting-for me at least. Um....what else? There's that whole Hamas thing...,Oh! I watched Project Runway. I've never watched this show until this season. I like Heidi Klum's Nordic icy delivery. I happened to catch it during a weekend marathon and I got sucked in. Poor Zulema got cut last night. I liked her because she was cold and mean to crybaby Kara on one of the shows where they had to collaborate. I have to admit her dress was hideous but no more so then the collective ensembles of Santino. However, mean queen Santino makes for better viewing. I haven't watched this much television in a while. I hate getting hooked on a new show because the idea of planning your life around television disturbs me.
Oh, dont' forget to watch FAYE on CSI tonight.

My Way of LifeBefore I forget I want to wish Handbag staple and ensemble member Timmy Howard a belated happy happy birthday. Tim has the esteemed honor of being labeled as the hottest Handbagger by my mother, who asks about him regularly. My mother doesn't know it but she's notorious for developing crushes on gay men. Sal Mineo and Johnny Mathis are on her top list of heart throbs. Imagine my delight in informing her that they preferred the company of men.
I've been fairly sorta kind of busy. I'm preparing a revised draft of POSEIDON! An Upside Down Musical to be performed in Baltimore this summer, and this time around I'm actually using contracts and all that other adult stuff. I've also made a commitment to have a first draft of my new script in about a month, this commitment is to myself, just because I could probably write this for years and years, and we all know how much I like to edit my own work. Ask Derek! I actually had to stop myself from writing last night because before I knew it it was almost 12:30, and I've been actually sort of getting to work on time, so I thought I would keep doing that, because they pay me and everything. I made it to page 19!
Going over POSEIDON reminds me of how much fun we had when we put the show up in 2002 (right?), and how we got Derek, Timmy, Brooke, Brannen, Mike Miller, Clarissa, Jennifer and the Professor and Maryann involved in Handbag because of that show. I still get e-mails about POSEIDON, I still get people asking me when we're going to produce it again. I've even had someone offer to buy a house (theater talk for all of the seats), when we do. Honestly, I don't know what we're doing next. We have potential shows, but currently my hands are tied- and not in the good Falcon video way. I just write. My biological clock is ticking and writing keeps me off the streets. I think if more kids today wrote plays and put on a wig and heels and acted out their favorite films we wouldn't have all these 'teen troubles' you seem to hear about.

My Way of LifeSomebody thinks I'm shallow. ME, author of POSEIDON! An Upside down Musical, and Rudolph, the Red-Hosed Reindeer! Not just anybody but the Justin Cannon (note the rainbow artwork) , founder of a gay Christian hookup site, Gayharmony.net.
So, the next time you think YOU'RE shallow ask yourself, 'Did Justin Cannon, gay religious author /expert and the Dolly Levy of the Gay Christian set take the time to visit my pathetic little Blog after I commented on a picture that was most likely bought from an agency?' Well, DID he???? I didn't think so. I'm way more shallow then you and don't you forget it. I have proof.

My Way of LifeSo I did it. I just ordered my new computer after 8 years of my current Dell. Fausto will kill me because I didn't heed all the advise of my hipster friends and get a MAC, mainly because I'm too lazy to learn that many new things and I want to be able to just get on the thing and pound away. My current computer will still be in use, but now I'll soon have a groovy new laptop!
A laptop is a computer that looks like a purse, but instead of makeup and used tissues this contains all the imagination you can fit into it! Music, DVD burning, scripts, porn! Yes, I said porn. Why hide it when the government is going to know all about it? If they don't already...,
My Dell consultant Jan decided I needed a notebook as bold and cutting edge as I am and we agreed upon on the XPS. I think it stands for Extra Pretty System or something technical like that.

1/20/2006ABC TV MOVIE OF THE WEEK.
Since Shelley Winters death I've had her 'B-movies' on the mind.
One of my favorites is The Initiation of Sarah (Check out ultra-geek Thomas Sipos' Amazon
review- he's found time to write 100). Here's mine- Shelley plays a witchy sorority house mother for the geek girls, a bunch of real dogs. Kay Lenz stars in it and her popular sister , Morgan Brittany joins the 'popular' sorority headed by Morgan FAIRCHILD. This is a great moment in television history. The meeting of the Morgans! Of course, Sarah can't get in the Sorority so she joins a geeky one called something like Phi Delta Epsilon. I know the letters because Morgan Fairchild has a perfect moment wear she sneers at them and calls it
PIGS, DOGS AND ELEPHANTS! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
Well, the girls are mean to Sarah and she seems to have these 'powers' and Sarah does things like locks the Morgans in a shower and douses them with HOT STEAMING WATER that pummels against their hot tight flesh! To top it off, Sarah and her hot sister, Patty's mother is none other then Kathryn Crosby, Bing's second Stepford bitch wife who seems perfectly suited to play a former bitch sorority girl from hell.
Where was I? Oh, Sarah kills everybody.

My Way of LifeA lot of people have asked about my doctors visit. Well, some people have...all right ONE person (thanks Brigitte) asked about my visit to the doctor Friday. It's official. I have Restless Leg Syndrome.* I thought as much. It is what it sounds like. You feel like your legs are having a panic attack when you lay down for bed- like they just drank a cup of coffee, and you have to shake them, raise them (not in a good way), cross them, and stretch them any way you can. It would ususally take about 2 hours for me to fall back to sleep making one tired David. Now, all I have to do is take one little pill, 3 times a day, I guess for the rest of my life. Wonderful.
I also have....... SCIATICA ! This is common, I'm told, and I've read about God-awful Sciatica cases where you can barely walk. I just have a never ending burning in my left thigh and throbbing pain in left leg between my knee and still strikingly beautiful hip bone about 60% of the time, particulalry when I sit at my desk, but I can still walk damn it! No pills. Stretches. I do them at home and the gym.
SINUSITUS! I've had this millions of times. Thats why mother sounds like Fran Drescher so often. The doctor gave me icky antibiotics.
My neck was given the old adjustment by Dr. Cook, the only man that seems to be able to crack my super uptight tense body.
Doctor visit bonus! The student doctor was a fucking DREAMBOAT. Todd. We talked, we laughed. When he showed me how to do the stretches I kept asking him to do them again, because I had not quite 'gotten' it. He practically had to crawl on top of me to try and crack my body. He failed after many attempts. Many have tried, few have succeeded to crack the DaDavid Code.
'Maybe if I took my clothes off?' I suggested. 'Well, if you are, I guess I should too' said Dr. Todd... 'Doctor, is this standard medical procedure?' I caught myself blushing.
*This just in- I've already sold the story of my RLS and the intense emotional struggle it's caused me to Lifetime. We're in talks with Lisa Rinni and Mindy Cohn.

My Way of LifeLast night I celebrated King Day at the Bailiwick Theater and saw the opening of Kiss of the Spider Woman which was a good, solid show. The cast delivered but I have to admit my favorite was my pal Ryan Lanning in the role of Molina. Ryan played Tommy Ross in SCARRIE-The Musical and Ted Casablanca in The Diary with us. I'd never seen the show before, just the film and to be honest I wasn't expecting a lot since it was a BROADWAY musical, but the second act won me over. I had a discussion about this with the now cured Brooke Allen and Brannen Daugherty and I think I like the fact that fantasy movie world was more prominent. My date, Ed Jones enjoyed the show too, but not enough to put out. I would have raped and killed him, but I wasn't in the mood to play Kennedy that night. I wrote two lines of dialogue when I got home last night. I got up to roll call before lights out. In 16 days I have 10 pages. Is that good or bad? I'm not really worried about it.

My Way of LifeChewing Gum
The elusive BC Kalz gave me a CD by Annie, Anniemal about a month of a half ago and I finally fished it out of the bottom of my purse last week and haven't been able to stop playing the first half of it since. It's very early 80's electronic/Bananarama/tongue in cheek (at least I hope so)/Tom Tom Club/dance/synth/pop. The funny thing is, the song was released in 2004 and the CD was domestically released in Jone 2005. I'm sure one of you know, if it was already a big hit in the clubs, but I'm too old and busy to know or care. The video is pretty funny because it's just the way I imagined it to be. Here's the link to the song but beware, it's addictive, and the graphics are hideously appropriate.

My Way of LifeSo last night was supposed to be either meeting with BC Kalz or going to the gym. Silly me, expecting BC to call me back. He must have found something shiny in his apartment. I ended up watching the LOST recap and totally got sucked in. It was good. I never watched any of the episodes- the last time I saw it it was another recap episode, but this time the stories were completed to some satisfying conclusions. There were answers. I then watched the new episode which immediately followed while taking down Christmas decorations. Although I like LOST I can't seriously invest in a primetime TV show. There are a few I enjoy. My Name is Earl, Little Britain, Law and Order SVU, Project Runway. The only TV I watch on a regular basis our The Simpsons, Malcom in the Middle reruns and TV LAND. Bed TV. I can't justify staring at a screen for 3 hours a night. I would rather sleep or write or...,
I usually catch shows that our on when I'm inbetween things which is why I catch some the horrible shows on E! on the weekends. The Gastineau Girls is a real head scratcher. Who are these horrible people? The mother, Lisa Gastineau was married to some football player and got a big divorce settlement. She has a bunch of plastic surgery and looks like the girl from the Muppet band. The daughter is 'Brittny', a darker Meadow Soprano type and she makes Ann from Little Britain look positively Mensa-like. They don't qualify to be celebrities as far I can see and they always want stuff for free and would suck the shit out of a hobo to be on television. Remember the good old days of Anna Nicole Smith?
I ended my evening keeping my promise to write something. It was so late all I could do wa write a couple lines, but I did change a characters name from Kitty to Trixie. Wow.

Brad's the bottom
Vote for Bradley,
my understudy and pal! Yes, I know, you thought this was me. No, it's my pal Bradley. Bradley was in the extension of POSEIDON! An Upside Down Musical, and when I went to California for Chris's twin brother's wedding he understudied my role. Steve Hickson was probably counting the days for me to leave because there was a kiss between our characters at the end of the show. I think that was the last time Steve kissed a man. Well you can see the striking resemblence, and I never get tired of telling that poor, pathetic joke whenever I see Brad (I'm sure he never tires of it) . Brad's a writer, and even though he's pretty hot, he's really nice without stupid attitude, and he's political and stuff. Hey, if ya' got it, flaunt it. Anyway, please vote for Bradley for the Genre Man of the Year contest. Please e-mail your friends to vote for him as well. He's one of us, and surely he's hotter and way more complex then the rest of those meatheads!

My Way of LifeACK! I just came back from the United States Post Office and it's filled with very disgruntled people. The powers that be didn't think there would be a HUGE demand for 2 cent stamps? People are really pissed. I actually heard a woman (gathered in a circle of concerned citizens with lots of spare time) say, "I've been coming here for 10 years, blah, blah, blah". Like the USPS gives a shit. "Oh, madam, 10 years! Please, come to the front of the line!". I was on official Hell in a Handbag business; mailing Michael from Dorchester, MA his POSEIDON! An Upside Down Musical cast recording and thank God for those automated postal centers. I too, am out of stamps and I couldn't wait in the long line because the work thang. I had to wait behind one of the many technologically challenged citizens of Chicago. It's amazing anything ever gets done in this country. When I go to the Post Office I can see why our country elected George W. Bush.
Last night I met some friends for a bit and wrote. Once again I had sleep trouble and I've finally scheduled an appointment to see Dr. Cook because besides the restless legs and sleeplessness. You see, I have a sore/inflamed left leg that starts on my left ass cheek and ends on the left side of my left knee that seems to be aggravated when I sit in my office chair. It feels inflamed and I have to rub it constantly. I also have a very sore neck (this has been going on for 10 years now) that makes my big Bobble head feel even bigger and a cough that has lasted for the past two months. I'm sure it has something to do with getting older or wearing ankle strapped high heels or both. If fans only knew the price I paid.

My Way of LifePINK got married. I'm not really a fan of hers and I could probably only identify a couple of songs of hers, but reading this almost made me vomit-
Per Us Weekly, the two-time Grammy winner, whose real name is Alecia Moore, wore a cream gown and had her blonde hair accented with, yes, pink highlights. Pink, 26, and Hart, 30, walked barefoot down the candle-lit aisle to the strains of
Billy Joel's "She's Always a Woman," according to Us.
What the fuck? Billy Joel? Barefoot on the beach? Cream gown? So much for the 'punk' pop princess. Any iota of semi-respectability she may have had is gone as far as I'm concerned. At least with Britney you KNOW what to expect.

My Way of LifeThis is Judy's Scary Little Christmas last week and I'm shedding a tear as I type this. We've all enjoyed working on this show as have the audiences (with the exception of 'Martin'). I've enjoyed working in this show immensely and the producer Derek Czaplewski seems to be a born PRODUCER, although I don't know if he'd ever do it again, he's done a great job.
Onward! Last night I visited the gym , came home, and wrote for about an hour before bedtime. I decided to just jump into this story because one of the reasons I think I held off on writing was I was waiting for some magic egg to drop from the sky with an answer. You know, a neat little package that I would just solve all of my mental blockage problems. As I write I realize that one of the pleasures of writing is discovering the magic eggs were there all along and finding them as I write is one of the treats of the craft. Magic eggs? Wow, with analogies like that I'm sure to get a JEFF award this time.
Tomorrow or Saturday I'm meeting with a playwright from New York City about the possibility of doing her show in the future and gee, that's about kiddies. Sorry to be so vague but you can't discuss the details because well, you just can't.

My Way of LifeWaking up today was a little tougher then it was yesterday. My restless legs gave me a bit of trouble last night but sleeping sideways seemed to do the trick and before I knew it was time to wake up and live a normal 9-5 life.
Last night I visited some friends I hadn't seen a while and wrote for about 45 minutes before going to bed. I tried to watch that wretched 'The Nanny' show last night because Cloris Leachman guest starred but even she couldn't save that one joke piece of shit of a show. I'm typing this on my new huge flatscreen monitor we had installed at work. All of this trouble so we could see some new fields we would need to see in the upcoming year. This made me yearn for a new computer at home. My current dinosaur of a computer is 8 years old and besides being very slow, it doesn't play DVD-R's and well, it's just time to get a new one. Some of the fellas were over Sunday night and we tried to watch the Omaha version of POSEIDON! An Upside Down Musical but my current DVD players don't have the capability to play DVD-R's so that's another new thing I have to get.
We ended up watching the classic HBO documentary, Living Dolls but Hickson ruined the buzz by getting all 'disturbed' by it. Of all the times to decide he has a soul. So a new DVD player is on my list too. I should have asked Santa for one. Besides how can I make porn copies, I mean copies of Handbag shows...,
I'm also getting started on developing my personal website, www.davidcerda.com as I'm told people will pay good money for trannie Joan Crawford porn. I'm sure Hickson can be persuaded to join Chad and I for a price. What exactly would one call an X-Rated verison of Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?

My Way of LifeNow that I'm back at work I can devote more time to the Blog thing and I guess I should update people on what we're up to.
Judy's Scary Little Christmas- Is doing very well. The crowds are loving the show and we're seeing people we've ever seen in the audience before. Our biggest fans seem to be the older generation. The show has been a pleasure to perform in and the cast is remarkable. We close this week so if you haven't seen it or you keep meaning to see it or if you know certain people will remember that you haven't seen it you'd better call 312/409-4357 right now.
Future works- Pending a review of our finances I expect a decision very shortly as to what we can do. 2006 will be a tight year for us, but we've been tight before. I'll bet you expected a naughty link, didn't you?
Writing- I really and truly have started on a new project. I decided to write whether I felt like it or not.
