My rehearsal schedule has been relatively light again this week, but I’ve enjoyed the rehearsals that I have had. We started working on a new show set to music from movies, and a majority of the numbers I’m in relate shockingly well to my life. The common idea seems to be “You shouldn’t have let me go”. At the risk of sounding arrogant, I’ll admit that I’m dancing to the words that I want to say, but won’t. I get to dance as a strong, sexy woman, and am able to be a bit cheeky.
Monday evening I had an uncontrollable chocolate craving. Those of you that know me well know that I am a chocolate snob. I convinced a cast mate to drive me to the store so I could satisfy my craving, and ended up going on a 2.5 hour field trip to the mall to get good chocolate. It was wonderful to get out of the apartments for a bit, listen to some cheesy pop music, and chat. And, of course, I was thrilled to get some yummy chocolate (dark, of course).
Tuesday was a comparatively long day at the studio, so when I got home, I joined some of my group at the pool. I was also able to Skype with a few of my friends from SF. What would we do without Skype?!
Wednesday I wasn’t called to rehearsal. I was a little disappointed, but have been assured that I’ll be busy at the end of the show. Now I’m just trying to enjoy the free time! I toyed with the idea of going to Miami, but cloudy skies and a long bus ride dissuaded me from making the commute. Instead, I had a “me” day. I was listening to more “take that” type music all day, dancing around the kitchen like a lunatic. Here’s a sample for you:
I gave myself a long workout at the gym, ran errands, talked with more friends from home, and spent a good lot of time in the kitchen. It was strange to have space to myself for awhile, but was also refreshing! I have a bunch of leftover spaghetti sauce (and wine) to enjoy over the next few days.
Today I have the morning off, then am going in to run the Broadway show. I have a little homework to do to make sure I’m at the top of my game, but I’m looking forward to the run through. Hopefully the end of the week will be as enjoyable as the beginning… with more movement!
