Just another average Wednesday

Wow okay so my dad and sister left the other day, my show closed and oh yeah it was Easter. Jeez.

I am finally settling down again into a semi-normal routine.

Now I just have to pack for Utah, have a birthday/housewarming party, visit both sets of parents and go on a riverboat cruise before I leave for Utah on April 25!!!!

Not too much to do, eh?

I have to go to LUSH before I leave. Miss Rose turned me onto this place, if you like cool beauty treatments, you gotta try it!

OMG, I went to Flea World the other day with my family. Damn if you live in the Central Florida area you should go there. It is insane. There is so much junk it is crazy, but there are a few cool things worth looking at.

Well I guess that is all for now.

Well it went and happened...

Helen and Justyn moved away.


They took their baby Samantha too.

How rude.

This weekend was a blur of craziness. Packing and running and working and consoling and stuff all at the same time non-stop for 3 days. I think I got 10 hours sleep total.

I promise I will update more later.

Oh yeah, I am glad to be working at Utah this summer, even though I probably should have waited to see if I got PSM for fall. BUT I think Lorenzo and Zak might have killed me if I didn't do summer. AND Camelot will be such a freaking bitch that I will be super good at traffic patterns and fly cue sheets. OMG! Zak just got back from March meetings and I saw the drawings. I have more than one fly that weighs 1000 lbs. Guess we can't hit anyone on the head with them.

What else?

Oh yes lovely Murphy's law. We got our wonderful tax refund only to see it flit away on the arms of a new garage door. Good bye money! It was nice to see you for a few days in my checking account.

On a happy note, we did get to pay off Matt's laptop and buy a deep freeze with the remaining money.


Well McKenzie moved to Lake County. It's like a freaking hour to get there and then another one to get back. But she loves her new school and that is a wonderful thing. She used to hate school and would say nuh-uh when I said "School is fun." This weekend I said that and she agreed. YIPEE!!

My dad and sister are coming to visit. I am excited and freaked at the same time. This will be the first time they see our new house. We have enough beds, but I have to put someone in the living room and I hate that idea. Because Matt has to work 2 of the 5 days they are here and he leaves by 9am. Oh well. I will figure something out.

Today when I normally would have been IMing Helen, I re-organized all the closets in my house. And made a meatloaf. And food saved a crap load of hamburger. Plus I did some laundry.

No, I don't need to occupy my time with anything......or anything....

Actors Returning to the Utah Shakespearean Festival

Hey I pulled this off the Utah Shakes web site.

Click for Photos
CEDAR CITY, UT - “Hang out our banners on the outward walls; / The cry is still 'They come'” (Macbeth, 5.5.1-2). Excitement fills the air at the Utah Shakespearean Festival as actors for the 2005 season are being hired and prepare once again to grace our stages. Several actors who have performed here before (and whom audiences have grown to love) are contracted and ready to return. They include the following:

Leslie Brott, a Festival favorite since 1992, will be playing Holofernia, in Love's Labour's Lost and Nurse in Romeo and Juliet. Past roles include last season's Katherina in The Taming of the Shrew and Ida in Morning's at Seven. In 2003, she played Mrs. Hedges in Born Yesterday, Queen Elizabeth in Richard III, and Mistress Overdone in Measure for Measure. Other past roles here include Judith Bliss in Hay Fever, Martha Brewster in Arsenic and Old Lace, Louise Seger in Always . . . Patsy Cline, and Titania/Hippolyta in A Midsummer Night's Dream.

Joe Cronin is returning for his fifth season with the Festival, and will be playing Montague in Romeo and Juliet, and Egeus/Fairy in A Midsummer Night's Dream. Last season, Cronin played Gremio in The Taming of the Shrew, and Theodore Swanson in Morning's at Seven. Other past work here includes the title role in Julius Caesar, Sid Davis in Ah, Wilderness!, and Leonato in Much Ado about Nothing. Having worked at theatres in the United States, England and Scotland, he is one of the founders of Portland, Oregon's Artists Repertory Theatre.

Phil Hubbard will be playing Dull in Love's Labour's Lost, Capulet in Romeo and Juliet, and several roles in Doctor Faustus. Last season he played Sir Walter Blunt/Owen Glendower in Henry IV Part One and Lord Boxington in My Fair Lady. During the 2003 season, he played John Dickenson in 1776. Other roles in six seasons at the Festival include Governor/Innkeeper in Man of La Mancha, Corin in As You Like It, McComber in Ah, Wilderness!, the King in The Shoemaker's Holiday, the Doctor in A Streetcar Named Desire, and Buckingham in Richard III. Hubbard heads the acting program at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

David Ivers will be playing Berowne in Love's Labour's Lost, and will assume what is perhaps his most challenging role, as he plays Jake in Stones in His Pockets. This season will be Ivers's eleventh at the Festival, and he has been seen in a wide variety of roles in over twenty productions. Last year he played Polixenes in The Winter's Tale, and Homer Bolton in Morning's at Seven. Other favorite roles include Truffaldino in The Servant of Two Masters, Caliban in The Tempest, and Gary in Noises Off!

Ben Livingston will portray Don Adriano de Armado in Love's Labour's Lost and the nefarious Mephistopheles in Doctor Faustus. He last appeared at the Festival in 1990, when he played Algernon in The Importance of Being Earnest and Sempronius in Titus Andronicus. Since that time, he has appeared in six major movies, including Bruce Almighty and Dracula, Dead and Loving It; numerous network television sitcoms and dramas including JAG, ER, Dharma and Greg, and Frasier; and numerous stage productions extending from the Pasadena Playhouse to the South Coast Rep.

Melinda Pfundstein will appear as the Princess of France in Love's Labour's Lost and Lady Capulet in Romeo and Juliet. This will be her seventh season at the Festival. Most recently she played Eliza Doolittle in last season's hit production of My Fair Lady and Lady Percy in Henry IV Part One. Past roles include Martha Jefferson in 1776, Clarice in The Servant of Two Masters, Belle in Ah, Wilderness!, and Gloria Thorpe in Damn Yankees.

Brian Vaughn will take on the role of Arthur in Camelot, and will appear in the challenging role of Charlie in Stones in His Pockets. Vaughn appeared last season as Hotspur in Henry IV Part One, the son of the shepherd in The Winter's Tale, and Smudge in Forever Plaid. Vaughn has assumed more than twenty roles over the past eleven years, including his 2003 portrayals of Benedick in Much Ado about Nothing and Edward Rutledge in 1776

Hair and Make Up suffered a loss today....

Well I just talked to Clark and it seems he decided to turn down a Hair and Make Up Crew head position to take one at Utah Festival Opera in Logan. Well at least he will be in the same state as us...

Cara Hannah-Frye will be returning.
As will Katie and little Katie and Charlisa.

That is all I know in the land of beauty and curlers.

I heard from Karen today and Trudy yesterday. I only need to know who 2 more P.A.'s are and I will have the whole list.
Look for a post tomorrow or the next day.

Ode to Ivetzita

One of my dearest friends.
Gone into the urban jungle to be seen only on video and sometimes at Christmas.

Spicy hot and full of that Puerto Rican passion I am so envious of.

My only tie left to Karl and to Jason....who are near and far all at the same time.

Who's Pappi is one of the funniest bikers guys I have ever met.

Who just yelled loud enough that I heard her all the way from Brooklyn.
(she wants to know why her photo isn't on my blog, you see)

Who's blog can be found here.


I wish I had a digital photo of this grrrl who you should all love and adore.

But, I don't have one OR a CD of my wedding to pull a still photo off of.

HMMMM.....I wonder where I could get a CD.....

Oh YES....

From Ivettza, my dearest Ivettza.....

Okay I stole this off of her blog so you can at least have some idea of who the hell I am talking about.....
