I Seem To Be Alright For the Moment

Hello. How's it going? I have been busy. The play is going wonderfully, I am truly NOT looking forward to the last performance. It's been very fun working with these people, shocking them at times with my really completely inappropriate sense of humor and such.

Not much else to report. Work has been busy. My parents will be in town for the last show, which is great, but also provides the horrible question "How do you let your parents politely know that you would rather hang out with your cast on the last night of performances?"

I will still get to see my parents on Monday, but I just know there will be guilt involved.

I guess that's all for now. Sorry for the lack of updates, but I don't have much going on outside of theater right now.

Today's Forecast: Grumpy with a side of Damn It!

So, the meeting yesterday turned out to be really nothing big (in my eyes at least), so the worry was for naught. Our office is moving and while I know that it's not going to be fun, I look forward to the change.

You have to understand, this is coming from someone who moved once as a child, 300 feet to the house next door. I don't really remember it much, but I loved my new room with the pink shag carpet.

When I moved to college, I discovered my love of moving. I love the newness of things, even if it's just your same old crap you're hauling with you, it's somehow new again as you re-discover things you've forgotten about. Or you realize how much crap you have that you don't need and so you sell it or give it away, all the while relishing in the release of having said crap around you at all times.

Sorry, I'm rambling.

But anway, my love of moving and new places is how I am approaching this office move (and since I can't seem to convince The Boyfriend that 5 years is way too long in one apartment and we should move just for the fun of it, this kind of gets him off the hook). Sure, I will lose my little office type space, and sure, I will probably end up in a cubicle, but man, try working in an overcrowded, never cleaned, always too warm call center for awhile. A cubicle is heaven compared to that.

So, I will let you know how opening weekend goes on Monday. My boss is coming. So are a lot of my friends/co-workers. I'm not nervous yet, but I probably will be a wreck tomorrow!

I Am Grumpy

I know, you're probably thinking, so what's new, you are always grumpy. But I haven't been grumpy in awhile. Tired, yes. Annoyed, yes. But not grumpy. I don't really have anything to be grumpy about.

I got to see "Fantastic Four" today. I went in with no expectations, and was pleasantly surprised. Other than Jessica Alba being the dumbest casting decision, the movie was a great summertime blockbuster type movie. I even would have paid to see it.

So, we have a department meeting today. Can I just say that after being through a business going under twice (yes, the same company, no, it wasn't my fault) and having to twice sit through the announcement that the company was folding, I really dread announcements like "Please gather for a quick meeting". It makes my stomach turn. Nothing good comes of this announcement. It's like the person you are dating telling you that "we need to talk." NOTHING GOOD COMES OF IT.

The show opens this weekend. I am very excited for it. Although I will be sad to see it end. I have truly enjoyed working with my director and cast. That's the problem with theater. The horrible casts/shows always drag on into eternity, and the good ones end too soon.

Such is life.
