Unexpected Interest

I haven't been blogging much this summer (or, for that matter, this year). I could blame all the addictive Facebook word games for taking away valuable blogging time, or all the sturm und drang of modern life for making me less motivated, or the knitting projects because I can't type and knit at the same time, or Doctor Who for filling my brain with all sorts of ideas which I hesitate to bother you with since you probably don't watch. Except Scrabulous has been removed from Facebook, stress was never a problem before, I should have more to show for all the knitting I am allegedly doing, and your lack of interest in Doctor Who has never stopped me from yammering on about it before (not to mention that I know of at least one person who is waiting to hear my thoughts on love, loss, and series/season 4).

So I was surprised that Michelle, fellow blogger, mom who likes to argue, and Word Twist competitor, gave me a shout out on her blog and an award. An award which, for some reason, I cannot seem to upload here. Thank you. And in accepting this I must share the love. Tracy has resurected her blog--if you haven't read it yet, go now. She is brilliant and wonderful. Judy always awes me with her SuperMom powers. Francesca is still doing her own stunts, though under a different name.

The only thing I am doing less than blogging is acting. Haven't done anything remotely like acting in forever (unless you count hogging the stage at a Karaoke bar a few weeks back, which I don't). I haven't even auditioned for a theatre in over a year. So I was completely and utterly gobsmacked to receive a callback audition (I mean, don't you have to go to the general auditions first?) for next week. I hesitate to discuss it in detail because I am superstitious and the more I learn about it, the more I find I really want it.

Well, thanks for the mention, and that means now I have to blog about something. Preferably something interesting. Which means my brain needs to function. MORE COFFEE!!!

I'm trying to remember all the theatre superstitions and whether I should wish you luck on your call-back, or phrase it some other way. Definitely excited to hear how that goes!

I love reading your blog, no matter what the frequency!

Good news about your audition! Break a leg! (right?)

Seriously, the only thing I'm doing less than blogging is checking on my friends' blogs.

I wish I had managed to visit sooner and wish you good luck. I was just holding the lovely shirt you gave me, wishing for colder weather so I could wear it.

Life is changing all around me. I'm trying to change with it. What is then is not now.
