The operative thing to do one a busy week is to write blog posts ahead of time. I say this merely as an observation. I am not offering advice to fellow bloggers nor yet outlining a plan I am capable of following myself. As the expression goes, I’m just saying.
Theatre loving people such as myself tend, by and large, to be too busy. If we’re not too busy, we are often looking for some project or other to busy ourselves with. I feel a little silly even talking about it, because there are other theatre people who are way busier than I am. I don’t know how they do it, although I suspect, for one factor, they get far less sleep than I do. And I don’t get as much sleep as I would like.
I suspect some readers are nodding their heads wisely, saying, “Ah yes, this is me, too.” Others are shaking their heads in a superior fashion, saying, “Well, duh. Do you think you could find something more obvious to state?” Guess which one is the critic that lives in my head.
That is what I wrote while on a break at work today. Then I went back to studying my lines for Steel Magnolias at Ilion Little Theatre. Second dress rehearsal is tonight. I have a whole new roster of costumes, which I think will work better. One advantage will be if I actually remember all of them. Funny story: Sunday night I dreamed I got to rehearsal and had forgotten the off-white blouse for Act I, Scene 1. Monday night I made damn sure I remembered that blouse! When I got to rehearsal I realized I had forgotten the jeans and sneakers for Act I, Scene 2. As I say to others when they make mistakes, this is why we have rehearsals.
So this is my Tired Tuesday post. I must soon hurry to rehearsal. I put most of my costume pieces on the same hanger or in the same bag. This will work! And if it doesn’t, I’ll have something else to write about tomorrow. Happy Tuesday, everyone.
