Stop Losing Things!!

Wednesday, December 23rd, 2009

Well, I’ve gone and done it again. The last two buttons for my sister’s gift are languishing sneakily beneath an auditorium chair in Dexter High School. At least they’re together, and therefore not lonely? I’m hoping to retrieve them after the break, provided that the janitors don’t toss them unknowingly. It’s embarrassing to admit how upset I was upon discovering their truancy, so we’ll just skip over that bit.

So, here I am, impulsively starting a new project. I’m still in the gleeful beginning stage in which I severely underestimate how much time I’ll need to complete it…

It’s going to be awesome. I can feel it. So what if I just now drafted the first element of the design; I’m invincible!

*small voice from the corner* Isn’t that what you said about not taking your broken foot to the doctor? Doesn’t it still ache 18 months later??

Common sense is for ninnies.

Yay snow!!

Uhm, I’m alive, by the way…

Picasso* was quite successful in November (yes, it’s been that long). I’ve rarely worked with a company I liked that much, so the last few weeks post-show have been rather strange. I’ve managed to get together with most of the company, but it’ll be nice when we have a full reunion.

Not to skip over a lot of time (not that I normally do a lot that’s worth discussing), but I now have a new show. In March I’ll be Prudence in Beyond Therapy with PTD productions. They are native to the Riverside in Ypsilanti.

Speaking of which, I had one of those really strange coincidental moments last night where something happens completely out of order, and everything goes screwy for a few minutes. I went to see PTD’s current production, and as we were leaving they were calling people’s names from the entrance. Apparently they had a drawing for “two tickets to see Beyond Therapy in March”.

I was standing five feet away from this, feeling totally disconnected. We’re cast, but we haven’t had a company meeting yet. I know two cast members by sight, but I won’t even meet the group until the end of January when we start rehearsals. So, these people are winning tickets to see me in a show that doesn’t exist yet, having no idea that I was there or that I’m involved. It was kind of frightening, but also kind of awesome.

Okay, that’s a good start. Somewhere, I have finished knitting. Next time!!

*Picasso at the Lapin Agile by Steve Martin. I was Germaine. It’s been long enough that I should probably clarify.
