I saw one for ever. Now I can only see the other.

Is this a shitter or a museum?

I know it might seem like I sit at home all day long, drinking beer and updating The Blarg, but the truth is I spend much of my day writing.

Lately, most of my writing has been on long-form projects. Because of this, I sometimes write a short (most times comedic, other times not so much) to break up the monotony of those longer projects. But while these shorts are fun to write as an exercise, nobody ever really gets to read them.

To remedy this, I’ve decided to share them here. I’m doing this for two reasons:

1. I like to share! That, and it’s better than having them sit on my computer.

2. It’s my hope that someone might be inspired to actually do something creative with them. Want to film one as a short? Awesome. Interested in animating one? Go for it. Feel like performing one live onstage? I dare you. All I ask is that you give me credit where it’s due, and (if possible) send me a copy of the final product.

The twenty-fourth of Shady’s Shorts is called “Real Conversations: Towels.”

Unlike previous Shady’s Shorts, “Real Conversations” will be an ongoing series of shorts that document actual conversations I’ve either recently overheard or had with people. The second of this series is titled “Towels.”

…back in October! Mostly because of… you know, life.

After flying to Chicago with KB, Grey, Meatshake, and Heisenberg on September 26th, I then flew back to L.A. to wrap up our packing/moving, grab Mr. Fabulous, and then make the long drive back to Chicago.

When I got there, I found Beth waiting to pick me up at LAX!

Surprise chaperone at LAX!

It was an awesome surprise, especially since I had just helped her move up to San Anselmo a few weeks prior.

I was only in L.A. for an insanely hectic four days, so we had to use our time wisely. To be read: We went to Disneyland…

Disneyland surprise!

…with all of these folks, who played hooky from their jobs/lives to hang out.

Yeah, buddy!

We even went over to California Adventure and rode California Screamin’, which we pondered intensely.

California... Screamin'? Hmmm.

It was a great way to leave L.A. That is, until I went back a few weeks later.

Thanks to Beth for making the long trek to surprise me, and thanks to all of the folks who came out to Disneyland. Miss and love all you guys!

I know some pretty amazing folks,

So many choices!
