You know, like “One of these days…” I thought it was an acceptable play on words. What else can I do on Wuss-out Wednesday but play a little bit with words? Yes, Wuss-out Wednesday follows Tired Tuesday as inevitably as… as inevitably as I begin a simile and can’t think of a good way to finish it.
I tried to write a blog post while at work today, but it was only another I Can’t Write a Post post, and I thought, why am I writing such a thing in advance? Should I not be composing at the keyboard at such times? So that is what I am doing.
We are doing complete run-through on Steel Magnolias, last night, tonight and tomorrow. We must be in full costume by Monday, but the director would be delighted to see costumes any time between now and then. With that in mind, I put on the skirt I think will do for me in Act I Scene 1. I purchased a jacket I think will coordinate with it last Saturday at New 2 You Consignment Shop in Ilion (perhaps you read my blog post about it).
Regarding the rest of my costumes… I’m working on them. Quite frankly, I thought I had more stuff than I in fact do. Oh dear, I suppose some of my cast-mates might read this and they will look sternly at me when they see me in.. yikes, less than an hour! At least I looked over my lines today. And other people’s. I learn my own lines first, so for the first couple of rehearsals off book I sometimes say them at the wrong time. How embarrassing. Other actors learn their lines and where those lines go at the same time. I’ll have to try that one of these plays.
