>Yaaaaayyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!

>I got the part of Stella in A Streetcar Named Desire (Imperial Theatre, May 27, 28, 29th)!!

I’m currently posting from Sue and Jed’s place in Halifax, NS. I got the call from Stephen on my cell earlier this evening and I’m just starting to calm down now. Wow! Yay!!

I’ll be working with Brian Dobblestein (Stanley), Scott Thompson (Mitch) and Martine Branwell (Blanche).

OK – I’m off to go celebrate! Yay!!

>A new show for StuckTV!

>Yesterday I had a great lunch with Lisa and Kristi. Later that evening I met up with Lisa to brainstorm ideas for a show that we could do for StuckTV. We came up with a format, a name, and we even wrote the script and shotlist for the first sketch! Talk about a productive meeting! I am very excited about it!

We’re calling our show The Uptown DownLo and within it we’ll have a skit, titled Stuck in Heels with our character “Holly”, who deals with a varitey of things (something different for each show). The skit will be related to our rant. Last night, Lisa and I wrote the first skit and created the shot list. Then we’ll do an interview with a local artist/musician/performer/business person… and that will lead into a little chat about what’s going on over the next little while in Saint John that peak our interests.

It’ll be interesting trying to squeeze the time in to do the show because we both have pretty busy schedules over the next little while, but I think we’ll be able to do it no problem. I can’t want to get started!!

>Where do you rank?

>Survey Results Linking Dangerous Driving Habits With Occupation

>Mellow

>I tried to relax last night. I needed a mellow evening. Even though there’s a ton of things I could or should be working on, I figure I deserve a night off every now and then. So, I had a nap after work, then went to Churchills for dinner with Renny and Colin, then I read for a bit and hit the hay early. I felt quite well-rested when I got up this morning.

>Hmm…

>A new way to view London: from a toilet

>Need Coffee

>I had a very full evening last night. I went to the callback for “Stella” and did my audition. I find auditions pretty stressful – and I hope this is the last of them for this part.

After the audition, I met up with Colin for supper at Churchills Pub, and we had a couple of delicious burgers. By the time we were done, it was time for me to head to the Somerset Pub to cheer on my friends who were doing Comedy Knights (their improv troup). They were quite funny, and I was pleasantly surprised to see a lot of folks there that I knew. I didn’t stay for too long, since Renny was coming into town. He didn’t make it to Saint John until about midnight. We hung out for a bit and then I set up the futon for him. He’ll be pretty busy today doing rigging and then lighting for Nickleback at Harbour Station.

I made it into work very early today. So between that and the late night, I’m already thinking about going home and taking a nap at lunch. Zzzzzzzzzzz…….

>Another Reality Show !?!

>Good grief!

SCIFI.COM’s Mad Mad House starts March 4th.

>A Quiet Evening

>Monday evening was nice and quiet. I had a nap, a healthy supper, watched Las Vegas, and then worked on my lines for tonight’s callback. It sounds terribly exciting, doesn’t it? I am looking forward to trying to relax a bit once I get this callback over with. I’m trying not to let it stress me out.

I guess I’ll be heading over to the Somerset Pub later this evening to cheer on my friends who are doing a Comedy Knights reunion show.

>Snowy Weekend

>Friday evening, Colin and I had supper at Taco Pica and then stopped in at Quality Convenience to rent a movie. We wound up renting season 1 of “24″ again, and we managed to watch 4 more episodes, bringing us to 3 PM. Only 9 more hours to watch….

Saturday I slept in then cleaned my apartment and got groceries. Colin came over for supper and we tried to watch the original Italian Job but found that it was way too slow. So we watched most of season 5 of Sex and the City instead.

Sunday morning I actually made it to the gym and did a full workout with weights. Then, breakfast at Reggies with Colin, then we headed upriver to hang out with Cliff and Shannon (and all of the pets). They went snowshoeing while I went over my lines for my Tuesday callback. Shannon made an amazing supper and we spent a bit of time in the hot tub before Colin and I came back into the city. It was only 10:30 PM and I was totally exhausted. I don’t even remember falling asleep.

I came into work this morning and the social committee had a breakfast thing planned. I managed to make it in time to score some free food and a lovely gift (yep – more swag: a leatherbound notebook and pen – very nice stuff). I am super sore from my big workout yesterday. I’m also very tired. I plan to go home and sleep at lunch. Tonight will be a quiet night in as I work on my scene once again so that I’m more comfortable for the Stella callbacks tomorrow. I’m trying my best not to get too stressed out about it.
