Tick-tock, tick-tock

As I think I've mentioned, at least obliquely, I'm understudying the Widow in Shrew, because Kate is getting married one of the performance weekends, so the Widow is understudying Kate and it made sense to have me understudy her instead of trying to hire in another actor for a small role for one weekend.

So, as Murphy's Law would have it, I was asked last week to go to rehearsal tomorrow and Tuesday. And of course am heading for Toronto (or rather, the waystation known as my uncle's house in Detroit) Wednesday night. Ergo, today was packing day.

Costume stuff is as ready as it's going to get (it's not a proper costume unless the last details are finished at the hotel! *g*) and packed. Regular packing will take place Tuesday (since it's a telecommuting day) between work and rehearsal. Wasn't able to borrow the Hoffmann windup key, as I haven't had time for a voice lesson the last three or four weeks so I haven't seen Solange to ask for it. Is okay -- the last two clockdroid presentations went over fine without it -- but I was hoping.

Possibly will hit the hardware on lunch hour tomorrow to see if I can find anything that will read in a ballroom as a clockwork key, but not holding my breath. Got both wigs (red for Friday night's reception, blond for the masquerade) washed and set yesterday, thus avoiding a repeat of the last two clockdroid presentations, when the wig wasn't quite dry and there were a number of bobby pins involved in hiding the fact that the curls weren't quite doing what they were supposed to. (Note to self: pack hairspray.)

Also want to hit Hobby Lobby for a fan to go with the black-and-white ensemble for the vampire reception. Which looks pretty damn good if I do say so myself, despite having been thrown together in about four hours Friday night with highly safety-pin-intensive construction methods. ;-) How much do I love that bustle drapes look terribly impressive when in fact they are the easiest thing in the world to completely fudge?

Need to print flyers for thanatos_kalos' Who conference and label with LJ icon and username to put on my badge. Am thinking some combination of the above errands may get done in Detroit Thursday morning.

The rest of my Sunday evening? Is SO downtime...

*chuckle* Well, that is easier to do when much of one's extended family is there, but I really won't be there long enough to do much. :-)

And you're welcome. I wish I'd looked at the files before last week to see that they were color, or they'd be ready by now, but it's all good.

If you wander through Clawson, wave at the ACR on 15 mile-- my old teaching job. :)

Ack! Sorry-- I should've said. :(

The problem with skimming posts? Is that suddenly you have to stop and re-read because you can't possibly have read that right the first time. I mean, why would they have clockdroids in Shrew? :-)

Ha! I'm surprised I haven't dreamed anything to that effect yet...

I feel so vaguely unprepared for all this. I haven't been on a trip in so long that it's crazy to think I'll be -going- somewhere instead of working.

Do you think dress for the blast-off party or no dress?

I'm doing dress. Or possibly skirt. But dressyish.

Generally one gets everything from jeans to cocktail dresses at such things, so I wouldn't worry about it.

I think I shall bring two options. I don't exactly have a large dress assortment and precisely 0 skirts, so...

You're pretty amazing. Have I said that lately? :-) Have fun!

Spare FK a thought while you're in TO. :-)

Thank you! And even if I weren't on a panel involving FK, it's still the thought as soon as I see the CN Tower on the horizon. :-)

You're going to be in Detroit? Overnight? Will you be completely busy visiting family? Because, well, do you remember where I live?

I'll really just be crashing, unfortunately -- even the family won't see much of me. :-/

Come September, I will have been at Office of Doom for five years, and my PTO will double. Traveling will become a very different proposition at that point. :-)

For values of amazing that = completely whackadoodle insane. But "amazing" sounds better. ;-D
