What if instead of Tired Tuesday I had Tirade Tuesday? I could rant and rave over something I feel strongly about. I could make my point loudly, or at least all in capital letters, and describe the accompanying gesticulations (“gesticulations” is one of my all-time favorite words). It would be a powerful statement. Well, don’t get your hopes up (as if any of you were). I don’t have that kind of energy. It is once again Tired Tuesday.
Last night I participated in Much Ado at the Zoo at the Utica Zoo with LiFT Theatre Company. I thought it went pretty awesomely. I guess there were some line glitches. OK, I screwed up one of my Friar speeches. I recovered my poise and continued. I neither stumbled nor lost my shoes in my Second Watch scenes (yes, I have done both of those, who do you think I am, Sarah Siddons?). More importantly, the audience loved it. We got all kinds of compliments after the performance. I must agree with our director, Matt Powers that bringing Shakespeare to the Mohawk Valley is a noble endeavor.
Unfortunately these noble endeavors wear me right out. I couldn’t even stand up in the shower. I had to take a bath or stay dirty (don’t worry, I chose bath). I hope I can find clean clothes for work tomorrow, because I am way too tired to do laundry as I had planned. As for writing a decent blog post, well, once again, I ask my wonderful readers to bear with me. I’m still in the midst of All Much Ado All The Time, but tomorrow I hope to at least come up with something less… tired. I hope you’ll stay tuned.
