Audition and traffic and schmoozing, oh my

Reasonably pleased with Horror Academy audition. I did end up using Paulinka's black-poodle-that-might-have-been-the-Devil monologue, and it was kind of interesting to watch about six different people giving varying levels of reaction as it went along. As usual, no idea what they were actually thinking. :-} I guess I'll know if and when I get called back.

All the way there and most of the way home I was like, "What the hell is with the traffic? Why is the entire North Side a zoo on a Sunday afternoon?" Only this morning did I realize, gee, it probably had something to do with the HUGE HONKIN PARADE. *facepalm* Clearly I need another weekend, as this one did nothing to recharge my brain.

Props to the Babes: They did in fact slip me in early, so that my originally scheduled 2:45 slot didn't make it impossible to get home and into black-tie-diva-schmoozing mode for the voice competition finals. I swear schmoozing is harder work than singing. And I love that this opera thing means actually doing it up to the evening-gown nines on a fairly regular basis, but that doesn't make me any less glad to get out of the gown and into PJs. Which happened with half an hour to spare before the hour of pumpkin reversion, which is always appreciated on a work night. 6:15 comes awfully damn early.

The singing was great, the food was great, the turnout was great, a good time seemed to be had by all, and hopefully we'll get some of these kids in the summer Training Ensemble session. All in all, not bad for a first annual event.

....there was a parade?

Congrats on getting in early, on getting noticeable reactions, and on the black tie thingie going well.

There always is this time of year. And it's not like I didn't know it was this weekend; I had seen people posting about it and stuff.

I never know the dates, and this weekend was all about "beebalm is moving and we have lots of extra kids and then a bday party at mtgat's..." ...so I missed it like I miss most general knowledge information anymore.

Keep us posted... I agree, BTW - schmoozing is very hard work, and 6:15 comes VERY damn early.
