So this is the third time I’ve put pen to paper attempting to write my blog post ahead of the time I type it into the computer. I still don’t have a clue what to write. I suppose it is still All Leading Ladies All The Time, but I think I’d rather talk about me.
As director, one of my jobs is to give the curtain speech before each performance. I welcome everybody, tell where the fire exits are and introduce the show. It is a classy touch for the director to dress nicely for this. Oh dear.
I know I have spent many blog posts on my wardrobe ills. When dressing for anything other than work, I struggle over What To Wear. What fits this week? What would look good? How is the weather going to behave? Will I be over- or under-dressed (regarding style OR weather)? I know some people do not agonize over these decisions and, oh, how I envy them. Then again, do they ever have the utter satisfaction of finding the perfect outfit after great effort? Oh, they probably have it more often and without effort. I can’t worry about other people!
With opening night just over a week away, my concerns are coming to a head. When the production was just a blip on the horizon, I had big plans to become small. You see, there is this little purple dress I purchased in 2011 and have never worn. Wouldn’t it be delightful to give my opening night speech looking all hot and awesome in a little purple dress?
I have not tried on said dress so have no idea how far off I may be. However, I am trying to take off weight. Having no time for exercise (I know, that makes me TOO busy), I have been concentrating on eating less. I’ve heard where eating less without exercise will lose you more weight than exercise without eating less. I must say, I find exercise more fun. I mean, I like fruit, I like salad, but…
I WANT POTATO CHIPS!!!
There, I’ve said it. That was as far as I wrote earlier today on my lunch hour. Now I am frantically typing prior to hurrying to rehearsal. I did not eat the potato chips. Yay me.
