The show was wonderful. Deeple was great! People seemed to like it. I had much fun. Then I got home and slept 12 hours. I had wanted to go to a friend's BBQ really badly, but when I woke up, I found that breathing was really rather difficult. I think it may have something to do with pollen or ragweed or something else utterly annoying because my eyes are all icky and yucko. Walking across the house left me winded. And there's another show tonight, so the choice was push self and go to BBQ and possibly wind up a big FAIL for the show, or try to rest and get over some of this and be relatively fresh for the show. Show it is.

Therefore, you MUST SHOW UP and see it :-). See how I suffer for my craft. Or was that wait! This left shoe.... Never mind :-)

[ profile] calvinthedeeple says YOU MUST GO.

Greenbelt Arts Center. Go early to get parking due to festival going on. Better yet, go to festival and then go to the play. Is wonderful and fun, so GO! Get you hence.

Greenbelt Arts Center. TONIGHT! 8pm. Also, tomorrow night, the 11&12th, and 18&19th. It's a great show, and you should come, if only to see [ profile] calvinthedeeple in his most Diva. (Actually, the cast is fabulous, providing much more entertainment than viewing the Deeple, but don't tell him I said so, k?)

Note: If you're attending this weekend, please come EARLY as parking will be at a premium due to the Greenbelt Festival thing they're having for Labor Day. Be prepared to "hoof it." It would be kind to drop those who have difficulty walking at the door before you go in search of parking.

Your last chance for a bit to see ME on stage with the [Bad username or site: @]Rude Mechanicals for the really cool and nifty fun presentation of Julius Caesar at the DC Arts Center in Adams Morgan. After this, I must take a break for an undetermined time. I will miss it, but the break is necessary.

I am privleged to be working with a group of professionals who CARE about the group dynamic, the individuals regardless of how small a part they might have, and the play itself. There is no "I'm more important than you, so out of my way" that is so prevalent with some other groups. I feel honored to have been given a part, and for all I've learned from people who have no problem giving. The ability to take a play that was blocked and designed for the huge space we had in College Park, and moving it to DCAC which is really tiny, without crashing into each other, instinctively knowing when to move and get out of the way, was an amazing feat.

And of course, nobody could have done anything without the amazing [ profile] chickenhat who put up with all of us, as well as his own crazy life to bring this play to light.

So if you want to go, I'd advise you to get your tickets NOW, as the venue is small and doesn't have a gazillion seats. It would be very nice to go out with a full house I guarantee you won't be disappointed. (Wait, a guarantee...from a LAWYER no less? :-))

I hope to see you there.

And so it was that most of yesterday was spent sleeping blissfully, and upon waking finding my brain had been scrambled by others running in tight little circles, not unlike the Tazmanian Devil of Warner Brothers fame, to which my "zen-like" response was: "Whatever." The day was then punctuated with lovely BBQ'd burgers a la [ profile] dogpooh.

Later that evening, the [ profile] exsmof called to inform us of his transformation into a decapod crustacean of the family Homaridae in its cooked form. I am hoping to cast my eyes upon this amazing sight when I go to dance class this evening. For those who missed it, more followers are needed so get thee hence.

The rest of the day shall be spent watching the Dow plummet as investors run in tight little circles, more job hunting/product shipping/loose end nipping/etc. with a nice early bedtime planned after dance. Rehearsal tomorrow night, A visit to the doctor and then [ profile] badmagic Wed., (I wonder if the two have anything in common :-)), NOTHING Thurs. night (what a concept) then more rollicking tragic fun with Julius Caesar on Friday and Saturday nights and then Mabon on Sunday to round off the week. *phew* I get tired just looking at it :-)

[ profile] disc_sophist where are those PICTURES you spoke of? I just MUST see if my stoga is on straight. Heh.

We had a wonderful show last night, and a great audience too. 5 shows to go, so your chance to see Julius Caesar hasn't passed you by yet. So get going and buy your tickets now. After the show, [ profile] exsmof, [ profile] badmagic, [ profile] dcseain and yours truly went out for a few beers, which was nice and relaxing.

Although I got home relatively early, I couldn't sleep til about 4, likely due to a late email I got from the FCC saying no to me for the job I had high hopes for. *sigh* All of this seems to be pointing towards my doing my own thing without depending on someone else to hire me. I must do some more contemplation there, but not today because I am committed to the idea of having fun :-).

Hope to see as many as possible at Caesar tonight. Theater critic [ profile] calvinthedeeple says, "There was bliss and there was woe. Then some more woe. Why couldn't they just get ALONG?"

Yes, it's Shakespeare. Yes, it's a tragedy. Yes, you've likely seen it before. But I'll guarantee you, you've never seen it quite like THIS! Tonight is opening night of Julius Caesar in 2044, with the AMAZING direction of [ profile] chickenhat, and a phenomenal crew, as well as a cast I am privileged to be a part of.

Dress rehearsal went great. You are going to love this show, promise. Tonight and tomorrow night at 8pm, St. Andrews church in College Park. 9/19 and 9/20, same same. 9/26 and 9/27 at the DC Arts Center. Ticket information available at The Rude Mechanicals Web Site.

Once again, the Rudes amaze me :-). See you there!

*POOF* the week went by. And what a week it was. There were some high points, including a WONDERFUL Rude bringing me BRANSTON PICKLE from a trip to England. I lived off that stuff (the rest of the food was really pretty bad :-)) and still love it to pieces. Yay Richard and yay PICKLE!

Recalcitrant Child is back in school in her senior year. I find myself wondering about the world she will graduate into. The good news for her is that she has two relatively stable jobs that will hopefully continue. Her grades aren't really good enough for a great college, but she can always go to NoVA (where the "N" stands for Knowledge..yeah, it works better when it's not written) and then to a VA state school if that's what she decides on, WHEN she decides to actually toe the line and get work done well and on time, which is basically her only current school problem.

I've applied for yet more jobs, tried to come up with yet more marketing strategies for a small law firm, and have even accomplished some house cleaning. I've also had fun with rehearsals for Julius Caesar with our ever so brilliant director [ profile] chickenhat and a fabulous cast, wonderful crew, amazing costumers and everything :-). It's nice to be a part of something so cool.

No weekend plans thusfar. Had some but they changed and now either inertia or flexibility will win :-) Not quite sure which.

You'll really like it...promise :-)
