Playwriting

SO I went to the staged reading last night of my play, “1-800-273_TALK” which is the number of the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline and the topic of my play.  It’s about a suicide hotline counselor that has started to think the callers have the right idea and how she’s talked out of it by a fellow counselor.  It’s really a cool play and was even cooler with actors and some blocking last night.  The director did a fine job and the actors, particularly the girl playing Angie, the suicidal one,  were really, really good.

I got to answer a few questions during the talk back and got to meet and see a lot of people–I saw Kris and Dr. Pischel, who I already knew, and I met the head of the  theatre department and our newest MFA professor, Dr. Wilson.  So that was fun.  Me and Candy had a good time traveling up yesterday and back  today so we were simpatico the whole trip, which was nice.  All in all a great experience and lots of fun was had by all.

Now I need to go to the grocery store and start laundry and do schoolwork this afternoon,  I don’t think I will have a lot of trouble getting it all done–I am motivated to start on this diet and see what I can do for it.

We finally got phone service back right before I left yesterday, which I’m sure was good for Bob and will be good here on our for us.  I’m so glad it got worked out finally.

I am so sleepy.  I didn’t sleep well last night and I want to either go take a nap or get the last Coke out of the fridge.  It comes down to do I want that last Coke for tomorrow morning or to get through this afternoon?  I guess I will save it for tomorrow morning and start caffeine withdrawals over the weekend when I don’t have quite so much to do in the morning.  We will see.  Hope everyone has a good end to their week and a good weekend!
