Friday the 13th showed up a day late

| | Comments (7)

Because during last night's performance, every possible thing (and things that I had never even considered!) went wrong for me. Yes, including the bloody television and remote.

And it was a packed house.

What can you do? The show must go on. And so it will. Tonight. And I will. And I will probably survive it, yet again. Albeit not in the least bit unscathed...

Psst. Just sent you an email. Don't worry about stuff going wrong. You're not on Broadway and it makes for good blog fodder! :-) xxx

I'd say "break a leg," but uh ...

kim said:

you'll do just fine. and i would come and check it out if i were anywhere near baltimore ;o)

and since you asked: don't know when he'll finally come here (he's still not quite better) and i am thinkin' about taking a few weeks of unpaid vacation to come in november/december. he doesn't know about the plans though and i just made that up in my little head last night. so we'll see (oh, how i hate that sentence!!!).

and don't worry about the not-so-frequent updates. we want this to keep being fun and not become a duty, don't we. and i'll be back (now you have to imagine that with a schwarzenegger-accent of course ;o))

it's like murphy's law... the more people that are in the audience, the more likely things are going to go wrong, and the more horrible it will be when they do.

Hey, you pinged! Does this mean you fixed your computer?

martha said:

I'd offer a break a leg too but just saw a friend in a performance in which he twisted his ankle - we all told him he'd taken our encouragement too seriously.

So I'll say kick ass! instead.

Helen said:

Sweetie, they will remember you. And even if things went wrong, chances are a lot of people didn't notice. If they did, but they still come back, then it's proof that the show did go on and you can still kick ass.

I know it.

about
is a South African girl living in South Africa. That doesn't sound very original, we know, but you might find it remotely interesting when you learn that she has only recently returned to South Africa for the first time after a nine year, one month and two week (non-stop!) stint in the United States where she accidentally became an outlawed alien (also known, especially in immigration circles, as an 'illegal immigrant.' We prefer the term 'outlawed alien' ourselves). During her reversed exile from her homeland, she kept herself occupied by winning this website (but only after shamelessly bribing the judges) and thus being unleashed on the web where she slowly, leisurely became the World's Laziest Blogger; by being a nanny and by attending sci-fi conventions in search of other aliens. In the US, she also made her sailing debut, her international acting debut, tried and failed to learn the piano, and never learned to cook. She is hopelessly addicted to coffee, dogs (especially Labrador Retrievers), how-to books (with a particular fondness for her copy of the Time/Life A - Z Medical Encyclopedia), and she tends to grossly overuse parentheses (we're not kidding) during her attempts at writing, which you may - if you really have masochistic tendencies - subject yourself to by reading the words to the right of this column. If you REALLY and truly STILL want to know more, you can read her C.V. here.
Or you can stalk her send her some love via e-mail at: redsaid[AT]gmail[DOT]com

The Wish List (Because yes, she really does need more how-to books. Honestly!)
