Yesterday, all my troubles seem...

...right where they were the day before, pretty much.

Did my usual fruitless search for a job from my various online alerts. 

Coped with some intestinal difficulties, possibly due to the previous night's and this morning's bacon ingestion. Too much fat, not enough fiber. Immodium is my friend.

Had a haircut at the place where I get my nails done - I'd been going to Great Clips, but this place has been so friendly (and less expensive) and there is little or no wait. They did an excellent job. Will be back to get my nails done Friday.

Went to Lyric Theater's rehearsal hall ("the warehouse") to be on run crew for Carousel.  It was their first scheduled run-through. I had 7:30 on my calendar, but call was 7:00 so I missed the first set change. Will get there earlier tonight.

They have a pretty big cast for this show, lots of kids, all the major ethnicities are represented. I especially enjoyed the choreography, and the chorus numbers. The two female leads are wonderful, and the male lead looks the part and has a strong voice, but IMHO way too much vibrato when he sings. The cast is ready for prime time, and I cried at the one place I always do. But that's as much a piece of baggage from my checkered past as the fine acting last night. 

We definitely will need more crew when the show gets into the theater next week. In the rehearsal hall we can't do a lot of the set dressing and things like the fog machine. Q2Q is going to be a long night.

Home, listened to more Blood Music audio book from the iPhone's iPod app. iTunes did a crappy job of ripping the CDs, some of the tracks are cut off before the end. Very annoying.

Plans for today:

  • Sick Transit Inglorious Monday

    At work just after 9, sent the usual over-the-weekend test update to the team, then opened a calendar item from boss' boss' boss. 10 am, same time…

  • Bonnie and Clyde, The Musical at San Jose Stage

    So many conflicting things to say about this. Let's start with why I went: The very talented Cliff McCormick is playing Clyde. Cliff played Jekyll…

  • I Thought It Was Friday

    Don't know why, but when I woke up this morning I thought it was Friday, and dressed like Jay Lake in honor of his birthday. Hawaiian shirt,…
