Another tearing round of insomnia last night - frustrating after a six show weekend, capped with an Elves rehearsal and a photo shoot.

Much upheaval with a show running, a show rehearsing, a move needing to happen by the first, and a sudden declaration from the company I gave up two other jobs to work for, only to be told several weeks later that they've decided to downsize due to the current economic climate - and will only be using their 65 new hires for the two weeks right around Christmas. I have put calls into one of my other options, offering my services, but have not heard back yet. Am supposed to hear back today at the latest.

And at this moment, of course, Murphy's law being what it is, my brakes decide to go out. That however, was Miles' fault. We were talking a week ago about how nice it is to finally be earning enough to keep an even keel for a while. He said, "Well, you know, now it's time for your car to break down."

Waiting for the other shoe to drop - as Becky took it upon herself to mention aloud the unmentionable "Scottish Play" the next night. Am fully expecting to be hit by a bus now.

Pinocchio going very well. One of my Kurts (see sidebar for that exchange) came to Pinocchio yesterday! It was so exciting to see him out there. He was in the second row but I didn't notice him until curtain call. I got to say hi for a few minutes after the show. He's going to re-audition. I'm very hopeful to get another round with him. His sister is auditioning this year, too.

The library has started sending me Buffy seasons. This should keep me busy now that I've finished all three seasons of Slings and Arrows.
