Another lovely sunny day! Baxter and I are still hanging out. His owners should be home in a few hours. I'm mustering the brainpower to make coffee.

I dreamed about working last night. I hate those dreams! Just when you get away from it all, suddenly you fall asleep and you're back at it again. This time I was in my costume shop sewing on the costume set that I'm refurbishing. Arabian Nights was completely falling apart. I had to whip up 15 pairs of harem pants over a weekend just so the group had enough costumes for everyone. I finished another 5 in the interim, and bought fabric for more girls' cropped tops, boys' peasant shirts, and a few sparkly veils. I'd love to remake the zillion vests that were made out of snuggie material, but I may not have time this round. They go back out again the 2nd week of march.

I had my first night alone in a while. I don't like it. It's funny that I lived by myself for so long, and now that I don't have to, I don't want to, either. I asked Alan yesterday if that makes me pathetic and co-dependent. He said, no, it's cute. And better than, "O crap,him again."

We went shopping yesterday. I had a show in Auburn, after which Alan and I went to the Supermall. There were a few things we'd been needing to buy. We went to Bath and Body works for new hand lotion (me) and new candles (our house - they alleviate the smell of decaying rat filtering up from the foundation), jeans (Alan), and T-shirts from Old Navy (both of us, on sale, just for fun). Mine is a Guinness tee for St. Patrick's Day. Alan got an A&W Tee - his initials, and an old nickname, and a cute henley for me on the final sale rack. On the way home we stopped for Pizza at Shakey's - Alan's old family hangout, with great thin crust! We stopped at home for a minute or two, and then I went back to the Logsdon's.

I have an audition today for Into the Woods. I'm working on a new monologue hoping to make it work, but if not, I'll go back to my old standby. Usually that's safer.
