Well, I'd say my accessorizing is having the intended effect. When I walked into rehearsal last night the director said, "Oh, don't you look smart. As always. And also artsy, somehow." If I had to encapsulate my personal sense of style into two words, those might be the two I'd choose: smart and artsy. I was tempted to whip off the scarf and say, "how do you feel about the outfit without the scarf--does that still work for you? 'Cause Coco Chanel says to take one thing OFF, but I ADDED one thing instead--what do you think?" But I didn't, because I am not completely insane. Not yet.
Rehearsals have been lots of fun, in general. I think I've laughed more in the last week than I have in the last year. I'm a little worried that, just as we're really getting rolling, I have to take the next week off and go do the "Fridiron," and then the next week after THAT I need to be off-book for the play, and I'm not quite sure how all that's going to happen, but I'll figure it out, I suppose. I did once learn an entire script in 4 days, as a last-minute replacement, and still got the best review of anyone in the play, so perhaps I just work best under pressure. Heh.
At least I have plenty of stuff to keep me busy and occupy my mind, since New Guy seems to have to have done a little back-sliding this week on his vow to be more considerate. Oh, it hasn't been terrible, but it hasn't been all that great, either.
And life goes on.
