just a little smile time...

Well, I've been quite depressing lately, so I thought I'd share something that made me laugh out loud, a lot. Elijah and I decided to paint the other day and we made a big mess and had a lot of fun! So check out a couple of the pictures here and laugh a bit.

Good review and show opening...

So Freeload finally opened. Just when I thought I'd never get everything I had to do finished for it, I did. Of course, that means I didn't sleep much the last week or so! But it all got finished and the show opened Thursday to a rave review (I'm not kidding on that part...we got a GREAT review in the local paper here). The show is awesome, the actors do a spectacular job and the tech just tries to stay on top of their cues! Trust me, there's a lot of light/sound/video cues in this show! It's just nutty. I should know, I'm running lights.

Today I did the one thing I've been dreading...I checked my bank account balance. Yikes. This is what happens when I don't have a paying job. It's sad, the state of my bank account. I'm hoping that someone will call me in regards to the dozen or so CVs I've dropped off. Someone, somewhere has got to hire me! Quickly too, I might add. I desperately need a job. It's a gnawing worry on me now. I just don't see how I can make it without a job that pays me. I have to make some money here! And whoring myself out on the street corner is really NOT an option (this is the one suggestion I get most often from my brothers...I know they're joking though). So send some good karma my way folks and hopefully it'll work out that I get some work soon!

My friend Kowoon was visiting us for a couple days this week. We used to teach together in Korea way back in 2006 and haven't seen each other since she left SK. Who would've thought we'd end up in the same country again? It was lovely to see her and spend some time with an old friend. I'm hopefully going to make a trip down to Christchurch and spend some time there with her and her family there. Hopefully soon, but you never know.

I'll put up some pictures from her visit soon, but just not now. I've got to head into town to work for a bit at the theatre trying to sort something out and then I'll be home until I work the show tonight. Until next time.

laura made me do it

ok, so not entirely true there--it's not like she's standing over me with a gun pointed to my head forcing me to do this. I digress, however. Alright- 7 random things about me.

1. I am dressing up as a kiwibird in about 1.5 hours to walk around for an hour dressed as such bird. Why? I'm not sure, but I get paid 50 dollars to do it!

2. I use more Korean than English when I talk to Elijah...this may be a problem as he begins to talk.

3. Computers frustrate me when they go kaput, and then when I waste over an hour trying to fix it unsuccessfully I get really angry.

4. I am much more anal-retentive than I care to admit. Working with two productions currently has only re-enforced that since the majority of the people involved in both productions are not organized or professional at all. It makes me crazy!

5. I still hold very fond memories of my two years spent in Korea...even though I know I had enough of the korean school politics, lack of foreign support system and ridiculous cultural things while I was there.

6. I am filled with useless knowledge. Most recently- UK royalty don't have surnames...they take part of their title as their last name So Prince William of Wales registered for university as William Wales. How interesting is that?

7. I love making clothes...but have a problem when I am trying to live in my workspace. Hence, my room is a complete disaster and there's nothing I can do about it!

Umm, I tag Carolyn, Lindsey, and anyone else who cares to do this. I don't actually know who reads my blog!
