I'm pretty sure that, no matter how much I bitch about it this week, I actually missed the insanity of working on a show. I missed the frustration and the pointless rehearsals where I have NOTHING to do. I missed that look we all get on our faces when we're two broken threads/lamps/microphones/deliveries/PROPS away from cracking and committing acts of depravity with the script pages. I missed the gallows humor. I missed miming 101 ways to kill yourself and your fellow actors/technicians. It's ridiculously fun doing this shit and complaining endlessly about it. No promises, guys, but I feel like I may have come home.

That being said, an abbreviated list of things I could have done today instead of slaving away needlessly at the shop:

I could have...

...celebrated Michelle's 21st with wild, parent-sponsored Bacchanalia in Chicago.


...become an alcoholic and moved to Morocco with some guy named Kurt.

So, things have could have been better, but they could also have been much, much worse.

Fortunately for all concerned I am now at home, eating real food (no more free pizza to gum up my insides, whee!) and basking in the incandescent glow of my new 100 Watt light bulbs. Like Blinkin, I can see! *trips over the landmine of frilly things and papers in the middle of the floor* Nope. I was wrong.

Also, unending ♥ for Ryan who is the fairest of the fair and loves me deeply for who I am... no matter how many times I mooch rides off of him in his unfortunate little car. *hugs ^ infinity*

Tonight the moon sees someone I want to see. Several someones. I wish you were all here, my lovelies. It just won't do without you.

ETA: So, it just hit me that I have rehearsal on Tuesday at the same time as my Stats exam.  Fuck.  Hopefully Spitznagel will let me take it Wednesday morning after class?  PLEASE?  *cries*

I think that Statistics exam was the first test in the history of my Wash U career that I honestly haven't been able to finish. When the 30 minute mark hit, I just started writing random crap down for the last five (approximately) questions because I didn't have time to answer them like a rational human being. *headdesk* Hopefully I didn't royally fuck-up the rest of the bloody thing. Partial credit is my friend. *pets the shiny*

Speaking of shiny, my Cleopatra dress sucks. Fortunately Bonnie canceled costume class today and I have time (NOT REALLY OMG SO MUCH WORK TO DO) to fix it. I think I need to add the pleated train, fastened to the top of the band with a falcon pin. It doesn't work without it. Unfortunately that means another rendering (low quality?) of the back of the dress. I might as well add the shoes too. Bollocks. In case you were wondering, the dress is this beaded lotus-like creation that is pretty, but perhaps a little boring for Cleopatra. Like all of the Ptolemy line, Cleopatra lost the Alexander the Great Gene Pool Lottery like you wouldn't believe. I refuse to imagine that she didn't make up for that with political savvy and a totally fab wardrobe.

Color-wise I think I should stop fighting the image in my head. This dress is going to be gold. Very gold. Two shades of gold with gold beads. The only accents of color are going to be in her jewelry (earrings, necklace, cuffs, and the pin) and the beading on the straps. She's going to look like a Goddess when I'm done. She commissioned many a portrait of herself in temples all around Egypt, filling in for the deity du jour. The least I can do in honor of her memory is a little more of the same. I just have this sinking feeling that this time she's going to look more like St. Prada, Our Lady of Accessories. *sheepish look* Oops? Oh, well. There are worse things to be...

Like me. I have to go study for an Econ Quiz which means reading two chapters of the most boring history book ever to bore me, followed by a chapter of the textbook. BOLLOCKS.

Oh, before I forget, I'm doing two independent study projects for design/tech credit this year: I'm the wardrobe coordinator/costume designer/reprising my role as Costume Goddess for one of the Wash U Dance Theatre pieces (which I will see for the first time on Oct. 6) and I'm going to be the assistant designer for Hamlet in the spring. *hands* I'm actually really excited! The projects sound crazy/fun AND I'll have 2 out of 5 required design credits already in the bag! I'll never sleep again, but there's a possibility that it'll all be worth it in the end.
