Happy List! – April 10, 2011 (AND April 9… oops!)

So… I might have fallen asleep early last night. It was a long day! Without further ado…

Things that make me happy… RIGHT NOW!

Getting back on the horse

Auditions. Can’t live with them, can’t live without them. They never get any easier! I was recently asked to audition for a local production of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. Great, but there really aren’t any roles that fit my vocal range. I went into it with the idea that I might possibly be able to use the comic chops to play the littlest speller (lisp and all!) but was surprisingly called back as the host/moderator/local realtor/former spelling bee champ… who is a… wait for it… SOPRANO!!! WHAT?!?! I have only recently accepted that I am now, whether I like it or not, a strong alto in every sense and *BAM!* Back to high notes. Funniest thing was, the character supposedly won the spelling bee 22 years ago and several of the girls also called back were 20 years old. (They won before even a twinkle in the eye!) 😉

Who knows if I’ll get the role or not… after all, I haven’t sung that high in a long time, but it didn’t go horribly and I *think* I read really well, so we’ll see.

  1. I LOVE that Damask print!! You have enough creative juices in you for thousands, I’m sure but here is my input when it comes to bracelet colors!

    *Red/purple (my favorite, and most under-rated, color combo!)
    *Navy blue/silver (for the space cadet in all of us)
    *gold or bronze/black (for heavy metal! woo!)
    *black/white (goes with everything)
    *sea foam green/baby pink (spring at it’s finest)
    *purple/anything! (purple rocks with gold, black, silver, you name it!)
    *orange/green (for the unique person in your life!)

    Variety is the spice of life. Come paycheck time, I’ll be buying one for me and my friends! (I have a lot of less-than-feminine lesbian friends, so some un-flowery options would be way awesome)

    My happy thing today is recovering for this awful virus. Still only at about 70%, but 100% is visible on the horizon 🙂

    • I’m not really the flowery type myself, but the pastel flowery ones already all sold out! Craziness. I was totally thinking about all of my less-than-fem lesbian girls out there too! It’s tough dealing with current stock & trying to dig up start up funds. Ribbon sales ended today… EEK… but stocks were short anyway (most likely due TO the sales). Still trying to find more options… 🙂 (I did make some shiny royal purple/emerald green ones. I LOVE them. Of course, jewel tones are great for redheads, so what’s not to love?) 😉 I’ve got some funky cold/allergy thing going too… perfect for auditions/callbacks. *Can you see my eyes rolling?!* :p
