So I did more auditions this weekend. I could only go to callbacks at Carpenter Square because I worked all day on Saturday. Usually this isn’t really a problem. It’s kind of a relaxed atmosphere. On this day however…flop. I read once. Three lines. Gah. It was depressing and gross and I just thought, fuck it. I’m done for the year and will get my head shots done in NYC and come back and just try it again later. My friend got cast, and while she and I are in the same age range, she’s playing a 60 year old mother. So who knows. anyways, she told me about more auditions and I went last night and got called back for tonight!!!
At least it’s something, ya know? I’ve been out of the community for too long it seems, and getting back in is HARD. But maybe. Hopefully. Possibly. Maybe. I will let you know how it goes.
After the audition we went up to watch the comedy guys. Funny night. I love it. Just as I was leaving however, a car full of other actors showed up and I got lured back in for one more drink and about a million more laughs. It was nice to get to know some of the group, and I feel a little less like an outsider now.
I JUST WANNA DO A SHOW!!!!!!!!
In other news, on my own little Mayberry experience, my neighbor next door (who was tack to me when I first moved in but isn’t any more) came over and invited me to join her and some of her other retired teachers in a book club!! They are reading Willa Cather’s One of Ours. They are working their way thru the Pulitzer Prize winners. I think this counts for my “read more classics” on the 108 in 2008 list! We will meet at a B&N close to my house Tuesday after work. I LOVE this.
It seems good, this life I’m living. I feel like I’ve expanded my circle of friends, started moving outside my comfort zone and experiencing new things. I actually got a handle on a place I might try for church. Gert and I have been tossing this idea around and wanting to go for a long time now, even talked about it this weekend. Turns out the redhead is going there and he really likes it too. So maybe…
Speaking of the redhead, he’s up this week at our local comedy club. Anyone local want to join me in a viewing Saturday night??? Let me know and I’ll handle the reservations.
Speaking of funny…check out the guys and their new venture into the podcasting world.
I might be finished feeding you stuff this morning.
I love ya! It’s a very fall day here in the great state that I live in, which means that we’re in the “in between i have no idea what the hell to wear” time. Gah. I’m off to pilfer and piece together something black.
Have a great day!
