Yay!

I am cast in the play. Whoo hoo! We'll be having a really light rehearsal schedule for the first few weeks, so it won't occupy ALL my time, but will definitely give me a focus and an outlet. I am most pleased. (Thank you, Julie, for not keeping me in suspense.)

In other news, I actually talked to Male Me a couple of times yesterday. I decided that, since I couldn't email him (due to his profile being removed) in response to his "I hope you're not offended..." email, I would just leave him a quick little voicemail assuring him that I was in no way offended, that I wished him and his family well, and he should feel free to get back in touch whenever he felt like he could.

Which was, apparently, about four hours after I left the message. He just had to call, he said, "because your message was so sweet and sincere...and somehow also funny--how do you do that?" Well, Male Me, that's sort of me in a nutshell. Heh. We talked for a while, and then again for a while after callbacks...talking to me lightened his mood, he said. Awww....

Of course, we still haven't MET, so I don't know if he'll pass the "physical chemistry" test (or if I will, for him), to say nothing of the "stubby fingers test" (hee), so...verdict still out, but he at least seems somewhat...captivated. Which does feel good, I must tell you, for someone who was rejected out-of-hand by the entire speed-dating community. (Okay, I know it was only those particular seven guys, but who doesn't love some good hyperbole? I know I love it more than anything else in the whole world!)

And in other news...well, there is no other news, really, except we all got free turkeys at work today. What does a vegetarian do with a free turkey, you ask? She gives it to her parents, as usual, and wonders why that vendor can't give out free broccoli-rice casserole or something. Hee.

Congrats on being cast in a play! Of course Male Me will come and see you in it, but then think HE could've done a better job. That's the tough thing about dating yourself...

Congrats on the casting! And the free turkey! There's nothing like a wildly inappropriate gift to make your day special!

Congratulations on the play!

Every time you refer to him as Male Me, I picture you dressed up as the Prom King. As a result, I'm finding it difficult to root for this relationship.

Yay, congrats! That should be super fun. Maybe you can cook the turkey for your castmates?

Happy Turkey Day!

Coconut, thanks! I guess we'll see about Male Me, IF we ever actually meet in person. Though maybe it's better if we don't--might set off some sort of weird rift in the time-space continuum.

noelle, thanks! Yes, wildly inappropriate is nearly always good. Heh.

flurrious, oh my. I haven't actually seen him in person yet, and now I'M picturing him as the Prom King. Oh, dear. ;)

stef, thanks! And that shirt IS perfect. Maybe the most perfect shirt EVER MADE. ;)

npw, thanks! I'm kind of giggling at the thought of bringing an entire roast turkey to the first read-through. "I brought snacks." Hee.

Male me sounds very nice. So does free turkey.

didn't you know on sunday that you were already a sure thing to get cast? i did. then when julie called me on monday night and confirmed it, i was quite happy. can't wait to see the show.

does the turkey for you come as a sign that i'll get chocolate yet again for my birthday from someone?

3car, free tofurkey would make me happier, personally...but I'm happy to pass it on and make my parents happy. :)

george, I did NOT know. I mean, I thought I read the best, but you can never tell with you weird director types. ;)
