The past week

So I finally made it to LA in one piece. My alternator went out before Flagstaff but fortunately I made it to Chino Valley okay. I was delayed three days as Roger from Roger’s Automotive found an alternator but fortunately my warranty policy covered it all. I left Chino Valley 0745 and arrived at Troyland 1415. The next day (Friday) I made a trip to pick up some of my stuff from Canyon Country and ended up seeing a David Lee Roth concert at the Universal Amphitheatre. I crashed overnight at my 2nd cousins’, drove back to South Central picking up a $35 microwave enroute, carried more stuff up the stairs, and went to a party at Greg’s.

Blackout(s)

Does no one else find the blackout in the Northeast hilarious? For some reason, I do.

Back to School

I’m finally thinking about starting to get ready to go back to school. I have a lot of packing to do. I think I’ll make it a three-day drive, as I did this last Winter break, and go back to LA via Albuquerque and Chino Valley, AZ. I conveniently have family in both cities which splits the drive up into three 7-hour days instead of two longer days if driven via Utah and Nevada. If I get my digital camera back/replaced in time for the trip (I better, dammit), then I’ll take lots of pictures enroute.

A Return to Normalcy

So the show’s over and life returns to normal. i.e. doing nothing. I go back to school in a couple weeks so I’m taking things pretty easy right now, being unemployed and all.

And thus begins hell week

So I’ve been doing this play over at Englewood, Bye Bye Birdie, and I’m playing Conrad. Anyway, this week is dress rehearsal week as we perform on August 1st, 2nd (my birthday), and 3rd. Tonight is the first dress rehearsal. We add costumes, makeup, lights, orchestra, and scene changes into the mix tonight. Wednesday we add makeup and push back the call by one hour. Should be fun…!
