Everything's up-to-date in Kansas City

The sentences that have made me burst into laughter this past week, with no further explanation.

* "Pretty well for a high school production."

* "Oh, Theresa, don't be downhearted."

* "Let's go see the big cat."

* "Even Jesus needed help in one of the shows out here."

* "You have neck issues."

P.S. - Did your package arrive safely?

Happy birthday to my big brother, who continues to pave the way into the twenties for me. I guess you couldn't have gotten better news juice than the Supreme Court nom, huh?

Much love and zombies,

Meet and Greet

What I've read instead: a bunch of crummy plays and two I liked but couldn't stage for various reasons

You know, for a girl who's semi-obsessed with Harry Potter, it's eating me up slightly that I'm not actually reading the book, even if I promised myself and am working on getting ahead for my directing class in the fall. I should possibly remove that countdown.

In other news, tonight is the closing night of JCS (no threat of rain like Footloose!), which means it's the last night I'll do something substantial for a couple of days. Sure, we'll be ferrying actors/techie to the airport tomorrow, but otherwise I'm basically not doing anything until tech next weekend. God bless co-producing shows.

Further Jesus sentences:

* Wow! Jesus is playing air drums!

* Jesus is taking advantage of last call. And really, if anyone deserves another drink...

* Jesus don't smell so good.

* I had coffee with Christ. It was fun.

Just now...

ERIC: So, it kinda sucks getting crucified...

For those of you [my Mom] who loved "make sure we save Jesus and the kittens..."

We in the theatre biz don't always refer to actors with their real name, instead choosing to stick with the character name, even during everyday conversations. Sometimes, especially now during "Jesus Christ Superstar," this leads to sentences with a bit more pep than otherwise. Instead of using our title character's real name, Ryan, we have the following statements (all real, all unedited):

* Can you help Jesus find the coffee?

* It's Canada Day. Jesus told me.

* Jesus is looking for a yoga class while he's in Kansas City.

* Could you just hand this off to Jesus, whenever he's on a break or whatever?

* ...He's really cute. Do you think Jesus has a girlfriend? You should go ask him.

The d is apparently silent

My work day just started with one of the random operations guys telling me "You look tire." I assume the day will proceed naturally from there.

Not like I won't make it up eventually

You're right, Hannah, you never did really appreciate sleep and the ability to sit still without wondering if there was another update to the community chorus contact sheet or collecting tax forms from equity actors or taping out the set layout in the spare pavillion or DEAR GOD DID SOMEONE REMEMBER TO FILL THE COOLERS? I'm so glad that you took the time to point that out to me, and I'll very much remember for the future.

Love, Hannah

P.S. - The day actually isn't so bad, especially since I found my checkbook. Of course, whoever was nice enough to put my checkbook in Starlight's lost and found still needs a quick moment as they apparently never looked inside to check the name (where they would've discovered my own) and instead rubberbanded it to a couple of IDs and credit cards. Anyway. Lunch.
