Dinner at sauced, enough said!
Twenty five years ago at At 4:31 a.m. on Jan. 17, 1994, I woke up to a rumble then my bed dropped like it was in a free fall in a elevator shaft. Then it hit bottom and rolled. The force of the earthquake threw me out of my bed and face first on the floor. I got up stood in the door jam and held on to the frame. When the shaking stopped. I could hear the sounds of my roommates Jonathan Tazewell and Peg Tazewell we’re trapped in there bedroom. The glass door to the backyard had shattered and they could not climb out of the room In bare feet. They road out the earthquake guarding their new borne baby,Conor. Our house dog funky had a plastic collar around his neck, because the dog was chewing its fur. Funky was trapped in the debris in our family room. I ran down the hall to help peg and Jonathan get out the bedroom with the baby. It was pitch black and you could smell Gas in the air. I ran face first into the hall closet doors that had swung open it’s the quake: I got the their bedroom door open and they climbed out into the hallway. We got Funky and all of us went out into the street and huddled with our neighbors. The smell to gas was everywhere. We had to wait until daylight to see the damage. There was cracks in the walls of our rental house and cracks in our street. As the day progressed Derek Webster showed up at our house and we Walked a few blocks to CalArts to see the damage to our School. Thank god we were in the school at the time because they had s plan of action and were able to feed us. The overpass highway 5 had collapsed and Valencia was cut off from the outside world except for one access road over the mountain pass. The school was Red Tagged as uninhabitable and after a month out of school we continued our semester at a Lockheed Martin military defense base on the edge of Valencia. It took almost a week to make phone contact with my parents. It was scary times lots of aftershocks and we would place a glass of water on tables to see the ripples for early warning of another aftershock! It was a crazy time but we all pulled together and that was how I spent my last semester at Grad School at CalArts. #CalArts #nothridge25 #earthquake #25years

ON ACCOUNT- Mike unexpectedly shows up at Louise's house with his newly purchased Green 1968 390 V8 Ford Mustang fastback. She sees the car and his spur of the moment purchase as a sign that he wants his freedom and wants to break up their romance. Little does she know that could be the furthest thing from the truth. This is a cute little Romantic Comedy that I wrote with the idea for Valentine’s Day Festival submissions. It's simple to stage two chairs and a few car sound effects. Short and sweet with a few good laughs along the way. #theatre #playwright #newplay #10minuteplays #valentinesday #romanticcomedy 🎭✒️ #Comedy

Since I can’t convince Congress to fund my wall and I must appease my shrinking political base. I’m declaring a National Emergency, tonight. Men in jumpsuits our poring over our boarders. The walls are so small that they are diving and tumbling over them! It’s a National Epidemic, the Wall must be build to stop these men in multi color jumpsuits. 😂😂😂 Just who is he kidding? #idottest #desparatewhitehouse #fool #notmypresident #trump
