Here I sit, laptop on lap (and if you just said, “Duh,” hey, some people put them on tables), searching for a blog topic. I push my wet hair out of my face and remember that I can get it cut now. I kept it “long” for Steel Magnolias. I put “long” in quotes, because it was not exactly all the way grown out. It is long enough to get in my eyes and drive me nuts. With help from fellow cast-members, I made it do for the play.
And why am I not running to the Hot Spot, where I usually get my do’s done? Well, I have rehearsal for He Laughed Himself to Death, the murder mystery Ilion Little Theatre is putting on at Morning Star Methodist Church in Ilion on April 1. Yes, this blog may become All Murder Mystery All The Time very soon. For one reason, I have another one coming up April 22 (Who Shot JS? at the Elks Club in Herkimer, to benefit the Herkimer County Historical Society).
In other news, a nor’easter is expected in the Mohawk Valley tonight and tomorrow. I read a Facebook post from WKTV Weather saying it was a nor’easter not a blizzard, citing the specific conditions to earn the “blizzard” designation. I was moved to comment that “nor’easter” does not sound like a real word. It sounds like something the old timers say is headed this way, basing their prediction on their corns or bunions. My bunions say precipitation, by the way, but they do not seem to feel strongly about it.
Well, I must go. I need to photocopy the scripts for tonight’s rehearsal. I am counting on the nor’easter NOT to start till after my actors are safely home from rehearsal. I am going to call this a Monday Mental Meanderings post and hit publish. I hope to see you all on Tired Tuesday, although I will perhaps be less tired now that Steel Magnolias is over.
