A Weekend of Red Wine Abuse and Theatre... (Sunday) [Nov. 23rd, 2003|10:36 pm]

I've had a chaotic weekend...

Since seeing my ex-ex out of the house friday morning and only having three hours sleep before a full night shift friday night thru to 6am saturday morning...

Got home about 6:20am saturday and had the silly notion that I could stay up all morning without sleeping to do panto rehearsals from 10am to 1pm...

Consequently by 9am I was totally knackered and couldn't keep my eyes open any longer...so I rang my director and switched my rehearsal schedule to 2pm-5pm...

And went to bed.

And didn't wake up till 5pm...

I either switched the alarm clock off in my sleep/put it on longer unaware of what day it was...(as I have a tendency to do)...or I slept right through the sod...

Either way, I had to ring at 6 and make my apologies to my director:/

Following that, I was so bleary-eyed that I decided against going out to a club in the evening, and, rather stupidly, opened a bottle of red wine, on my own, alone...and sat at the comp for hours talking to friends on messenger...

Who then had to put up with me bawling my eyes out over my recent ex for an hour...and then drunken waving of my paintings on webcam...and then singing along to loud goth and worse over the microphone...

*curls up in shame*

I'm too old for this kind of solo drinking/loud singing behaviour...and it's taken its toll on me today.

Incidentally, I went to bed saturday night/sunday morning about 3am...with Marilyn Manson's Mechanical Animal album blaring out loudly on my stereo...what amazes me is I actually fell asleep listening to it!!!

This morning I woke at 9am...got a lift into theatre at half past by my dad who reminded me that it was my mother's birthday today...

Ahh crap!!! I forgot...

Got into theatre by 10am...did a full run through of Act 1 and 2...went okay except I'm severely crap on some of my cues... I seriously need to go over them...but I don't have anyone to sit and read lines with me...they're all learnt off the page whilst in my bed downstairs alone...and Snoopy can't talk...(though I'm certain he can read)!

At 1pm I went to Subway and had a tuna roll, double choc muffin and a coke...and continued in the afternoon until 5pm with Weird Cabaret rehearsals...

Worked through all the sequences...very very good...almost sold out too...only 8 tickets left...

And we are repeating the same show on the 1st of February next year...oh joy...at least it means I won't get depressed after the panto run finishes as I often do when a euphoric project comes to an end...(day after last night blues)

Had a lot of fun singing, doing sequences...though it turns out I'll have to borrow a white bra and pants from my mother as we are wearing white vests and white longjohns...with the white faces, arched eyebrows in black, red mouths etc etc.

Finished that at 5pm...dad arrived and took me up to theirs to give mother the card and box of maltesers I'd bought...

(I'm broke and it was with what was left of the twenty quid she lent me on Friday after I bought wine, tobacco, crisps and a pizza which I burnt last night:/)

Had a big dinner, and was so tired after that I lay on her sofa and slept for a whole hour and missed a documentary on Titian...which was a shame as I sat through the Inca Mummy thing on National Geographic channel or something and that was kind of american-y...and too excited rather than library-dry which is what I like about history docs...I don't like them being made up-beat and 'interesting' for da kids like all the cop shows etc...

So dad dropped me home about half an hour ago...and I'm awake again...oops! I can't go to bed too early as I can't wake too early 'cause I'll be knackered at work come 4am Tuesday morning...ho hum, coffee and cigarettes it is...

And loud music...wahoo!! I'm airing out all the corners of this flat with as much goff music of my own as possible before the neighbours have cause to complain hehe!!

*wanders off in the direction of the kitchen*

(I'm sure there's a bottle in there with one glass worth left in it...)

Thank You!

Thank you for your inclusion of yours truly to your friends list.
I shall look forward to reading your journal, as I hope you do mine.
Also, that's a great website you got there. Mine is but a basic affair, however, it is but a learning process too, albeit an uphill one sometimes!
Toodle-Pip!

Re: Thank You!

I'm sure I will:)

I started with Cliff's Notes from the library...haven't really progressed much since lol...so I wouldn't worry about it!

*hugs*

Nah. We're never too old for anything of that sort. Especially after the "recent ex" circumstances. I know the feeling all too well. Not as of lately, but I went through it about two years ago. I understand. I think we can all relate.
Hope your week is good. You can IM me anytime to talk about exes, cello stuff, or anything at all!
