Put those gold stars all over my forehead. I did good.
Not only did I ‘get up off my ass’ to do laundry and errands, I also tackled garbage, recycling, and dishes, jumped thru the ring of fire for my pharmacy and ordered new injections, and updated the theatre website.
Feel a bit bad about the last; L actually sent me a note yesterday asking for the password for the website so she could put up a notice that we were NOT doing my trilogy in 2019. I apologized to her; that’s my job. She must have received one too many messages referencing the production. I mean… Great that people got enthused over my story and my write-ups. But she shouldn’t have to be the one to explain to everyone that we’re not doing it and regrouping. Down came the graphics, down came the long thought over write-ups. *sigh* It was the last nail on the coffin for me, the final confirmation that my dreams of a European premiere will not happen in 2019. Posted in the blog, too. Kept it light-hearted. Wound up with a final mention of L’s play on Saturday. She deserves it.
Looking ahead: M is gonna be very busy after his first child is born. He certainly won’t be performing in anything for at least 6 months, and he may find it difficult just to make board meetings. T, the director, is not officially listed as a board member. He comes to all the meetings and his opinion matters because he’s the one who has to head every production, but in reality it’ll just be L and me. I won’t be too much help with venues; despite everything said here, you’ll only get an earful of Dutch when you talk to anyone in the city. You need fluency, and I don’t have that. Once again, I find myself determined to support L in any way possible. She’ll have to work her way through venues and dates and tussle with a lot of behind the scenes problems. She needs to take the lead, too, due to the language thing. Plus, she’s the senior member. I want to be her right hand, the person who steps up and takes care of what needs to be done as quickly as possible. That’s why I worked hard to update the website yesterday, and why I was so pleased to send her message saying it was all done by 3 in the afternoon.
Haven’t heard anything about filming L on Saturday, so I don’t know. Haven’t bought a ticket online. From what I can see, if I did that I’d get an E-ticket to print up. I don’t have a printer right now, so it would be a pain in my ass to try and send it around and get a copy. Easier to pay right at the door. I don’t expect the show to be sold out.
The weather is just getting worse and worse. Snow by the weekend seems inevitable; everyone expects it. Happy to say I already bought a new pair of snow shoes when they were on sale. Not the best on the market, but certainly the best option for me at the time.
So…bring it on.
