based on true events

One of the Canadian ice dance teams just skated to music from Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights (specifically, the last dance sequence) ... and the fact that I could recognize that instantly took me clear back to my college years, all of us on a movie trip together.

SO convenient

I didn't feel well, so I took a nap. Woke up and felt worse. So nice of illness to wait for when I was done with work for the rest of the weekend.

Yesterday was the one year anniversary of the new theater's grand opening. This post still isn't about that.

Okay, job seekers. Let's recap (as if this will make a difference):

* When submitting digital copies of your headshot and/or resume, always make sure you've included your full name in the title. I don't care what else you have there. Just make sure you aren't sending me "MT headshot 2" or "2018 resume new" or, heaven help you, "Image 1." You have no idea the frustration it brings to have to relabel your own files ... nor the joy it brings when I don't.

* Even if you already know I like you and would happily sing your praises to strangers, tell me in advance if you're including me as a reference. Don't let me find out because of that voicemail from the ignored call that I listen to three hours later. Give me time to prepare or risk me spouting forth whatever first comes to mind.

* And, because I like lists of three items or more, don't just not show up if your schedule changes. Life happens, it's okay - but send word (before, if you can; after, if you can't). Otherwise, I assume you're irresponsible and I will indeed hold that against future casting.

(Cue the spambots.)

We changed ideas, so sadly I will not be including the phrase "children's theater sexy" in last night's production report.


[I've been to NYC and MO, and through a major storm, and *this* is what brings me back to posting? Sure, why not.]

Also, the Harvey reports have a quote of the day section is really aiding my post-its.
Absolutely crashed last night, and still feel not so great this morning, but I'll take it today if it means I'm recovered by vacation next week.

In other news:
* Hey, remember when I used to routinely post an "in other news" section?

* Ended up with store credit and a free portable hard drive after Amazon said they'd delivered (when they wouldn't for another 36 hours), sent the box to the wrong address, and managed to include the wrong product on top of everything else. I am okay with all of this.

* I teared up at the end of Dunkirk, and then teared up again as I watched the projectionist fuss with the real, live reel of film at the 70mm screening.

* I was (very last minute) pulled into a PR photoshoot project to advertise the new season, so the loopy pigtails and I may end up as the face of one of the upcoming productions. (Or not. I think they scheduled eleven people for ten shows, so we'll see who makes the cut.)

(Well, technically *yesterday* was a bit of a day, as it is freshly Wednesday.)

...And suddenly, my ankle started throbbing for no apparently reason, because today was a bit of a day.

gin, cointreau, rum, syrup, absinthe, lemon

Tonight I went to an escape room/immersive theater hybrid with two people I love dearly ... and five (who turned into six) complete strangers.

Tonight I cracked open a safe (first with tools, then while listening for clicks) ... while absolutely every other person was on the other side of the room, involved in unlocking a cabinet.

Looks like we have an even 1/1 split on outgoing/introvert Hannah.
