last week i wrote a very long, detailed post describing what my tour is about, how things are going, my feelings about my fellow castmates, what it's like interacting with an audience of college students, how i feel about the subjects of our shows (dating violence, and aquaintence rape), what it is like to be attacked onstage, what living out of a suitcase is like, going from hotel to hotel, vermont after a blizzard. this was a long-assed post and as i was spell checking the computer at the bed and breakfast i was staying at froze and after i spent about five minutes swearing and yelling at the screen and hitting ctrl alt delete, ctrl alt delete, CTRL ALT DELETE!!!, i had to take a deep breath and let go of that post and try not and think about it for the rest of the day.
we had a long week last week. three shows in six days. we drove through a major blizzard and a not so major snowstorm. we had audiences of about fifty, to six. i don't understand why a school would spend all of the money to get us out there and then not advertise the show, and act all surprised when only six students show up and three of them were our student hosts... but hey i get paid either way.
kpr and i had a dinner party on friday night when i got back. we invited over a bunch of friends we hadn't seen in a while. we had people from pennsylvania, argentina, france and israel at our table. kpr cooked everything- mixed green salad, with fresh beets, cherry tomatoes, mango salsa, yummy garlic soup with parmesean cheese and lemon, sauteed shrimp with garlic and tilapia with a ginger lemongrass sauce. it was all delicious and everyone had a great time. saturday was spent inside watching movies and snuggling with champ. we watched super size me and ohmygod i'm never eating mcdonalds again! yuck-fast food gross yuck.
sunday was kpr's nephew's first birthday and we went to nj for the party. kpr did all of our laundry at his parent's house- aren't i a lucky girl?
