The past few days...
Over the past week I've spent quite a lot of time working on the WAM O Solo Festival that I am stage managing. I worked Tuesday - Thursday for Drama Kids (some days with 3 classes). And on Wednesday I chaperoned the local HS's Drama Club field trip to see a college production of "Cabaret". Oh, and last night I went to see another fairly local HS's production of "Oliver!" This was mostly because I'm directing "Oliver!" this summer with kids and partly because I went with a friend. :o)
And I've read some, sure, I love to read.
And I've been working on a few different things that I'm trying to write.
Oh, and I spent a few hours on phone calls catching up with two of my best friends, one who's in London and one who's in Seattle. Sigh...I miss the days when they were "just around the corner" and we could go out to the pub to hang out/catch up.
But I digress. Right now I'm working on a book ... writing it not reading it, though the one I'm reading isn't that far from my fingers.
:o) And that is all for now.
