This is actually the first birthday I've had in at least four years that I've actually NOT had a show of some kind going on.
2004: Fiddler on the Roof performance, followed by an evening Cubs/Dodgers game in LA.
2005: Rehearsal with John getting ready for the Palm Springs Show.
2006: Oliver! performance. Parents came out to visit for the first time.
2007: Man Who Came To Dinner performance, Showcase rehearsal and parents' surprise visit.
2008: Godspell closing, Showcase rehearsal.
2009: Register for summer term. Go to library to work on term paper research. Talk to Mom & Dad. Kickboxing and tkd (yes, Mom, Mrs. S gave me a hug for you. So did Gil.) Cross my fingers for the Blackhawks (didn't get to watch the game) and get rewarded with a win AND the loot from Astarian friends who bet against them. Indulge in a glass of wine AND a bowl of ice cream with dinner tonight. Talking to friends.
It's a good day.
