so it's been a while

Hot 'n Cole opens Wednesday.  I've been busy learning music.  started dog walking again though, the weather has been nice. well, maybe not so nice today (windy and cool and cloudy).  managed to read a book, Trying to Save Piggy Sneed, it's a collection of stuff by John Irving.  anyway, hoping I make it til Saturday, my throat is a little bit ticklish today, I think because the hall we rehearsed in yesterday was cold and I was too stubborn to go get my sweater out of the car.  oh well.

too busy

well, Appointment with Death opened. and I'm already rehearsing for my next show, Hot and Cole.  It's a lot of music to learn in, um, four weeks.  so reading has been almost non-existent. Finished Oryx and Crake and now i've got a couple magazines to read. I'm ready for fall!  c'mon!

what now?

got cast in a show, Appointment With Death.  It opens Sept 11, so I've been in rehearsals for a few weeks now. It's a very different role for me, very dramatic.

I guess we're on dog walk hiatus as well.  I get the odd walk in here and there, but mostly it's too hot to walk them.

reading has been a slog.  Mozar'ts Sister took me forever, she was so whiny. and On Repeat was dense and mostly about how we really ought to study why we like repetitive music and listening to the same music over and over again.

anyway, that's it for now.

whole lot of nothin goin on

I did go to Florida for a week while RTO has been at AT, but other than that it's been reading and recording and walking dogs.  got entered in some mapmywalk/purina challenge so I could win free dog food maybe. just have to walk 20 times in 45 days. easy. well, unless dog walk hiatus hits during that time, which it could, but so far we're staying relatively cool. low to mid nineties for the next week.  I don't usually quit til it's hitting 100's, I think. We can handle low nineties.

so today we're just waiting for RTO to get home. reading The Mists of Avalon.

I'm a snob....

maybe.  got offered an ensemble spot and turned it down.  Mostly because I don't want to worry about all that while I'm on vacation. and I haven't done ensemble anything for free for years now. not that I do a lot (any)of paying gigs, cause I don't.  so I'm still not planning on doing any theater for a few more months.

in the mean time, RTO fixed the bedroom shelves last weekend and I've been doing about a record a day and trying to stay on top of reading.  cutting trash out for a while I think, mostly because it's not easy to get to on my kindle and the series on the night stand is 27 volumes some of which I'll have to buy on kindle (which is great because before they were available on kindle they were going for 80 to 100 bucks on amazon). but I'm putting it off for a month or two. We're trying to put me on a budget for books. har har.  this month is shot, but there's always next month.

the shelves we installed in the front bedroom closet fell yesterday.  They were holding all my craft stuff and candles, so there's broken glass, yay!  It's been difficult to get to that closet for a while now, guess we'll have to clear a path.
