No play for j00!

Well, I didn't get cast. I'm not too disappointed about it... the woman who did get cast in the role I desired is a friend of mine, and I know she's going to do a fabulous job. I think the director and I had different views on the character, and that's OK. I am SO genuinely pleased with the person she did choose.

I did learn (or re-learn) something, though-- I was given the opportunity to read the same set twice. I read it, well, not the same, but with similar intention and with the same characterization in my head. Given the chance to go back and do it again, I'd go in with a wide open mind and allow the text to strike me in brand-spankin'-new ways the second time.*

Not that it would have necessarily made a bit of difference last night, but it's just a good thing to remember. :) I've always attribued a large part of my believability and honesty as an actress** to my ability to connect with textual elements, and perhaps I've drifted away from that a little.

Well worth the audition. Good friends seen, and a valuable lesson learned :) What more could you ask for?***

Today's weight: 153.0! I just wanted to share that :)

I seem to be losing at the rate of ~1.4 lbs / week. If I can keep up this pace, I can reach my first goal earlier than expected-- just a week or two after my birthday in June. That's fairly unlikely-- I expect to hit a few plateaus along the way, and my true goal date takes that into account (135 by 07/18/07). Still, it's encouraging news!

Paul and I are both feeling alot better already.

My engagement ring keeps slipping around my finger, so I've moved it to my right hand. I'll get it cleaned and resized in July :)

Gah, my computer just bluescreened on me-- for the second time today. This, after my mail, browser and other apps have each crashed multiple times.

This isn't good. I strongly suspect it's the motherboard, and I simply don't have time right now to deal with that.

I need a vacation. And a new computer.

Oh, and a nap would be nice, yes.

OK, I just made an appointment to audition for The Third Annual Florida Senior Playwright Festival. A lot of places have Young Playwright Showcases, but this is the first one I've seen that caters to Seniors. Hey, only in Florida, right?

If nothing else, it's an opportunity to perform on The Hipp's stage. I'm all for that!

Hm. Time to pull a headshot out my ass. Not quite sure how I'm gonna manage that one. I'll figure something out, though!

Ach, back to work I must go. Hope you're having a great day :)

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