Got up at 9:50am this morning after about 3 hours sleep and had to get a taxi to theatre...
Today was Tech run day...that is...a lot of going over scenes for lighting/sound/fx/projection cues etc etc...it took a LOOOOOOOONG time!!!
Was in full costume for the first time today...I have a HUGE belly made out of a pillow sewn into a T-shirt, over which I wear a black velvet and gold robe, with a huge black velvet/gold fabric turban...it's really really huge, and heavy...and the hat it's sewn onto is rather tight...but looks good...so I will have to get used to it. Very very hot under the lights in all that...I shall sweat off at least a stone with all the performances this month hehe...
Had a half-hour lunchbreak at 2pm, went to Subway and had the usual choc muffin and tuna roll...drank way too much coke...then we continued teching until 6:15pm...got to the end of the show too!!!
Walked home, but was tailed/walked alongside all the way from town to nearly millbridge by an iraqi guy, who kept asking for my phone number and if I wanted to go for a drink and that I was beautiful etc etc...was a bit edgy really, but was friendly to a point, and then a bit offish, lying that my 'husband' would be waiting at home for me...ok so I got a bit nervous...he eventually apologised and left...but I needed a cigarette when I got in.
I nearly rang my ex to pretend I was on my way home and that his dinner would be ready/mother was coming over when I got in or something daft...*rolls eyes*
Anyway...now I'm at home, going to go over my lines later and catch up on some laundry as I've been neglecting housework for a week now and it's beginning to look like a hovel in here...empty wine bottles...that sort of thing lol
I'm into work an hour early tommorrow, as Dress Run on Tuesday is liable to make me late for work...so I have to make up time just in case. Bah!!!
*runs for a wine glass*
BTW...anyone here remember Joey Deacon??
