We had our final dress rehearsal of the cut version of Escanaba in Da Moonlight tonight. I'd like to thank Mr. Mike Greene for providing our rehearsal space at Sierra Interiors in Bristol. Tomorrow we (and when I say we, I mean the other guys, not me because I have to work) load up the truck and drive it down to Muncie. We'll get there sometime in the evening, Steve and I, after work and such. But tonight we had a solid 56 minutes with an audience, so I'm really pleased. I think we're in a good spot, and I'm excited about our performance Saturday morning. If any of you can make it down to Muncie Civic Theatre, our performance time is 11:30 a.m. and we'd love to have you cheer us on. A great big thanks, also, to my friend BILL!!!! who is going to be there sitting next to me :)
I started and finished an audiobook in the past week. "Strange Angels" by Lili St. Crow. I picked it up because the cover looked interesting and it was sitting on top of the youth section as I walked past. It was NOT a youth book. Well, it was about a teenage hunter (hunter of vampires/werewolves/zombies/etc) but the language was atrocious for being in or even near the youth section of the Middlebury Community Library. I didn't even know people in Middlebury knew some of the words in there. At any rate, the story itself wasn't bad. It got a little weary in parts, but any book that starts with a seventeen-year-old girl who has to kill her father because he's a zombie rates right up there in my book. I enjoyed it. Today after I did my huge ton of grocery shopping, I left it in my CD player of my car while I unloaded and put away groceries and had it turned up full blast so I could listen to it from the garage. The dogs were befuddled. Doobie also does not like my birthday card from Steve, as it plays the Charlie Brown music. He runs from it in fear. I think he's intimidated because he is not as cool as Snoopy.
It's time for bed. Actually, PAST time for bed, but I drank a Mountain Dew recently and took a nap earlier, so of course I'm not tired even though I have to wake up in less than six hours. Let's see if lying in a dark room will put me to sleep. Doubtful.
Wish us luck at festival!
