So, tech started at noon today. We were done with the show at 3:30. We ran it again this evening just for shits and giggles, and will do the same tomorrow evening. Then we'll run it again, mostly in the evenings next week, open Friday, and call it a running show. It's a good show, but I've seen it too many times already, even with the tech. Socks will most definitely be worked on during the runs of this show.
I can't believe how bored I've been lately. I know I'm super PMSy, but normally I am just fatigued. Totally wiped out with no energy whatsoever. Not this time. Right now I, unfortunately, have lots of energy and can't focus or be entertained by any one thing. The show doesn't interest me. Everything at work seems so trivial. Seriously, my job is to smooth feathers and make sure everything happens on time...so someone else can be entertained. It's not brain surgery. The games I normally play don't interest me. The only thing interesting me right now is knitting, House, and, for some reason, exercising. This week I've been to class, gone running twice, done pilates and balance ball, worked on my form and some drills I remember at home, and have done pushups and situps more frequently than usual (meaning, at all). Weird. It feels good, though. Unfortunately, I've also been insomniac lately. It's driving me nuts. I hate sleeping so late in the mornings and wasting them. And Teddie has suddenly decided that my closet floor is now his litter box instead of his real litter box. Weird, gross, and more than a little frustrating.
On the plus side, I've done five increases on the Short Row Pullover sleeves. I've done several more repeats on Tumbling Blocks. That pattern is so damn easy, it's almost absent minded, but it looks so cool. I've also been working on Mom's socks at rehearsal, and, given the brainpower that is necessary for that particular show, maybe I'll get them done by the end of the week.
Oh, and Colleen, congrats on opening The Full Monty! Are there links to any production photos from your show?
Ugh. I want to go to class. And I've pretty much decided that I'm going to try sparring - but I can't start until after Feb. 11 and I'm going to talk to the instructors and some of the other students first and maybe get some idea of what to expect. Of course, I still have time to change my mind, but hey, that makes two nights a week I can get out of the house and out of the theater!
