Not about knitting...

Parents got in about five hours later than expected last night, but are here safe and sound. Apparently they spent the day exploring the beaches and restaurants up north, since I have two shows on Saturdays.

Steve is finishing up a gig and then driving up here tonight. He's anticipating getting in around four in the morning. I'd ALMOST rather him stay down there and sleep, but then there is no way he'd make it up here in time for the show. He's already seen it once, but we have had plans for about three months now to take my parents out to dinner at a restaurant we've been DYING to go to, and the only day he could possibly come up is tomorrow, and this is a very nice, last-minute gig. Send safe driving and staying-awake thoughts to him tonight, if you get a chance to read this.

One of our YPs broke his ankle hiking with friends this morning, so had to figure out how to cover his track (none of the YPs except Oliver are understudied, which I SAID was a bad idea from the beginning!) before the show this afternoon. It takes three people to cover his track. Only in theater. (If you're taking notes, this is why it is a BAD IDEA to understudy from within, btw.) At least he broke it somewhere other than at the theater - the insurance and paperwork would have been a nightmare!

Starting the heel on the Column sock. That's all that has gotten worked on lately because I can work on it during the show =P

It's kind of comforting to know that it happens at other theatres too - the "no understudy" thing. Everytime we try to do a run without understudies, all hell breaks loose!

I hope you have a great weekend with your parents and your guy!
