A classy broad's life... with footnotes.
Randomly scribbled notes between randomly scribbled work
Yesterday marked the end of another six-week semester for Paul... an occasion especially worthy of note, as it ends his twelve-week doubled-up-on-classes hell.* His next class will be challenging (Environmental Psych), but at least it will be his only class.

Tonight I have auditions for a local production of The Crucible. Auditions were last night, too, but I missed 'em. I swear to G-d, I thought they were next week! I'll have to thank the director for sending out a reminder notice. (Does so.)

What else? Work's kicking my arse. I'm two weeks behind on Battlestar Galactica. But I did catch the first part of Planet Earth last night, and DVR'd the other two. All I can say is "WOW." I'm seriously considering picking up the entire series (11 episodes) on DVD.**

Like I'll actually have the time to watch 'em. Well, a girl can dream, can't she?

I have gotten to spend a little time playing KoL, after two months being AWOL... I'm somehow doing consistent 5-day hardcore teetotaler runs (to 13, no less). I'm sure I could do 4 days with a little RNG help (and a little extra time, but I guess that's out of the question).

bornofdivinity and some friends are coming to Orlando in a couple weeks-- I've managed to finagle two days off (even though my workload is such that I can't really afford them). I'm psyched. I could really do with a few days hanging and laughing with friends. Maybe we'll do Disney or something :)

I'd better get back to work... hope life is happy, wherever you are!

~Hugs to those who need 'em, those who want 'em, and those who don't run away quickly enough~

* Did I say "his?" I meant "our."
** Usually, these things are sold per episode, and cost a a small fortune. The entire series is $79, which ain't bad, really.
*** I'm down to 153 pounds-- losing at the rate of 1.5 lbs per week. I should be my old self by July :)

I'm feeling all kinds of: quixotic how can I win the lottery?

It's amazing. They replayed them all late last night... they might yet be on again.

And thank You for the well wishes!

I'll see you at auditions tonight! I have a callback and will be there at eight. :)

I'm glad you got that email! In my most perfect of worlds I'd love to do another show with you.

Hooray! I'm so glad :)

I'd love to do another show with you! And if we could actually, you know, interact with each other-- wow, that'd really be something!

I can't believe I missed it last night. I was so convinced it was next weekend-- I even mentioned it to someone in passing today.

Pat gets big thank yous from me.

How was the turnout last night?

We interacted! I splashed LOTS of water on you! *g*

Turn out was pretty good. There was unsurprisingly a LOT of teenage girls. There were some adult women, but there definitely could have been more. We got some good guys. We need more kids for Betty, and some women to audition for Tituba.

Originally I was going to audition for the adult women roles as well as the teenage roles. It looks like I'll probably just be considered for the teens though. While at the auditions I realized I look too young to be a grownup in a show with teenagers.

It'll be good to see you tonight!

You can do a wide range, and I think that's evident to everyone. I wouldn't write off the adult roles so quickly (though I am just a little jealous that you can still pull off the teenage stuff!).

I'm enamored with Ann*, though I'll take anything I can get. If things don't pan out, there are auditions at the Hipp for the Senior Playwright's showcase coming up soon.

Regardless of what happens, I get to see you tonight! Hooray!

* You know how sometimes, when you read a play, you can just feel a complete character jumping off a page? I'm not describing it very well... but I like Ann. Elizabeth is great, too, but she didn't hit me over the head with a mallet like Ann did.

Anns a good one!

I'm equally enamoured with Abby and Mary. Abby's more flashy, and isn't the type of character I'm usually cast as. Mary is just this wonderfully complex girl who has this great arc in the show.

And yes I know exactly what you mean about characters jumping off the page. :)

And the term "break a leg" comes to mind! Hope it helps. ;-)
LUCK! *hug*

Oh, and congrats on the weight, I'm so impressed by you and all the hard work you've put in to this. *nods*

My friend has been wanting to send me Battlestar on DVD as I have never seen it, but she thinks I will love it. Hopefully I'll check it out soon.
