Behold, for I have survived the soreness! I have all of Wednesday and Thursday to feel ok before I go back out to the screampark to fall into holes, climb endless staircases, and generally fall about, hurting myself, like a ninny. I wonder if I will be this sore again after a couple more nights of spooking people for hours on end. I'm going to make my best effort to stay upright at all times while walking. Maybe if I cut down on the prat falls, I'll feel better at the end of the night.
The weather is cooling off pretty nicely. This is good. I don't like wearing the whole peasant dress get up when it's 80+ degrees outside. It's cool enough tonight to feel good out there if I had to go. Maybe by Friday it will be even cooler. Friday is my birfday. Go me.
October 1st. The day of the persistent, perfectionistic, career ladder climber.
Speaking of careers, I got another call today asking ME if I'm coming to work or not.(?!) We are not done negotiating price. I'd like to be coming to work. I'm going to track down the boss tomorrow and if he can't name me a date to report for work, I'm looking into a job opening here in town that I found out about... As a medical recruiter. I might hate that. There is potential for excellent money, but it's sort of sales oriented which I sort of hate. However, the one thing I am really good at selling is my own services and things that have to do with the medical field, so maybe I could really pull that off. I'd be a headhunter. I'm usually the quarry, rather than the hunter. I suspect you have to be braver than I am to be a recruiter, but maybe not. I don't know. This would be a good time to find out.
Did you seeeeee that full moon? Do you feel it? I always feel a full moon. Astrologically, I'm in high cotton for the next entire year. From now till sometime next October. I feel good about that. It means good things are coming my way. According to my forecast, I am supposed to get busier for the next 4-6 weeks, and I am, come to think of it, because that's about how long I have to keep doing shows every weekend, plus I think I am about to hit the road for work again.
It is going to SUCK, coming in from the road and having to go out to be the gypsy all weekend. I'm doing this whole spook-house-actor-thing to come out of my comfort zone a little. I prefer to be a creative planner than to actually be an actor, but I thought it would be good to make myself do something a little outside of the old comfort zone. I am thinking about doing some other crazy shit, but I haven't decided what just yet.
I'll keep you posted.
