I have been very slow to post lately

And update on the audition was that I was not cast. Which is fine, it had a really huge potential to screw up all of the rest of my life for a part in a play that meant I would probably never act. Although the director had seen work of mine that I had written myself and performed in the Tim Miller workshops and that was awesome for me. Possibly as awesome as not being recognized and getting the gig.

I did get promoted at retail job which has pros and cons. Pros are I have a set schedule that never involves flex shifts that I may or may not work and I am paid quite a bit more an hour. Cons are that there is more responsibility on me when I am at work (which I am not against just that I am leery of this for me fluffy part time job as it might leech out the fluffy) and I have to do truck which means getting off work at 1:30am one day every other work and then taking public transit home.

I also got put on an advisory committee for the Lincoln Park Zoo education department which means I get to spend the next two years MAKING UP our new carts and curriculum! I am stoked. It is volunteer but super fun.

Also wedding planning is moving forward. We are working on not having it involve yelling. That might need some more work (from me as much as Sam).

Please cross your fingers

Because I have an acting audition with a not BIG big deal theatre company here but a really awesome second tier theatre here to be a PAID understudy to a supporting role on the first show of their season. Which means it is totally likely that I could get that job and never actually act.

But it would be an awesome experience, and it is for the Sarah Ruhl play In the Next Room (or the Vibrator Play) so please cross fingers, and certainly at least pray that I totally don't screw it up.

Wedding Planning makes me want to shoot myself in the face

I mean, not really but kind of. It is just so much work and so many people and so many dictums that make is SOOOOO complicated. And it is just too hard. Especially from looking at it on this side of the to do list.  Instead I want to cover my face with my bed sheets and skip it.

Also other people are soooo excited that we are getting married. I mean we were always getting married. We just didn't know exactly when. Now we know. Calm the heck down. Also maybe they are excited because they won't be planning this shit. UGH!
