We finished our final run of the MSTT show on Saturday. I was not in the show on Friday, because the Sweetie and I went to the Opera to see The End of the Affair. We had purchased these tickets at the Seattle Choral Company auction, and had overpaid for them, so we weren’t about to miss it. This meant the show was missing both of our presences (he has been playing bass). The Opera was, well, interesting. The performances were excellent, and the scenery was well done. However, the music, while not atonal or disturbing, was just, well, nothing much to write home about. It was all very minor and very depressing and just not as good as I’d hoped.
After the Opera (and a fabulous pre-show dinner at Ten Mercer), we stopped by the cast party for the evening. Two friends of mine, who are not in the MSTT but who I know through my former employer, went to the show and were hoping to come to the party because I had told them how much fun they are and how many single women there are! Well, the party was sort of low key that night, and not as fun as I had hoped (although I looked pretty darned good cause I was all dressed up). It just was a mellow evening, but even so I didn’t get home until 3.
Saturday, it was the final night of the show, and the Sweetie had a gig so he was not playing once again. His presence was indeed missed, but even though we had to cut two numbers cause a lead lost her voice, I think it went over OK. Then, we had to strike the entire set. We do these shows in a cafeteria, and we have to get it back to being a cafeteria before we call it a night. The upshot is that we didn’t even start partying until midnight. This party was quite good, and my two friends showed up again, but as they had already been partying for hours, one of them was 3, 4, or even 5 sheets to the wind, so I spent most of the night just making sure he didn’t do anything terribly embarrasing. I got home at about 5 (Standard Time, thank you).
Meanwhile, the nice things that people, particularly other straight women, are saying about my appearance continue. Apparently I have a great rack, and I’m gorgeous and my hair is to die for. Who knew? It’s nice to hear those things…perhaps this is why I like theater so much! 🙂
Sunday, I finally got some chance to relax, but Monday I was right back in the thick of things. I had a new client (a very sweet older couple whose computer is full of viruses), and I had a final phone interview. Yes, you read right, a phone interview. For a contracting position at aforementioned former employer.
Long story short, I have taken the job and I will be working mostly from home. I start next week. I am apprehensive, but excited to be making money again, as we found out last week we need a new furnace, and money seems to be flowing out of here rather quickly.
Oh, and we start our performances in the Ballet this week. Tomorrow I have two rehearsals, and then shows start Thursday night. Oy, am I busy!!
