I didn't make anything today. I sort of just had one spontaneous outing after another. Nick had to be at school at 8am. His school's drama department hosted a competition. There were five school drama teams participated in putting on a one-act, 35 minute play. He was to go on stage at 10am, so rather than go all the way back home, I decided to hang out and find a store. Nothing was open until 9, except K-Mart (a department store) so I went in and looked around. I picked up some little things I thought I would use for my chunky book pages but when I got them home, I changed my mind. I also bought a couple of t-shirts. They were half-price. By the time I checked out it was just after nine, so I went to Books-a-Million and looked around a bit until time to go back to the school.
I was so proud of Nick. He's been getting sick; lots of coughing. But he managed to keep it together for the show and really projected. His character was "tragedy" and he was very dramatic, with big arm movements. He and "comedy" had a little argument which was really funny. One of my favorite lines, though, was delivered by another actor. She was "opera" and argued with an instrumentalist who happened to play the flute. The flautist, in her frustration, asked "What makes you so SURE of yourself?" to which the vocalist replied, "I'm a soprano." I'm an alto (well, mezzo soprano) so I laughed really hard.
When they were finished, I came on home and hung out with Michael, took him out because he wanted to buy a hat, came back and took a short nap and then cooked supper. Then Michael and I went back to the school to see the awards given out and to see who won. Oh yeah...one of the judges was a guy I went to college with. The last time I saw him, I was pregnant with Nick. It was so fun when he asked if I had a student in the play and I was able to point Nick out. He said "Oh, he is a really good actor. He's very talented." (This was after the judging and everything was over).
We've just been hanging out tonight. We watched "What about Bob?" which was filmed near here. Richard Dreyfus and Bill Murray...funny combination.
I am so sleepy. Changing the clocks back sure makes bedtime welcome. Sorry I don't have any pictures to share.
Huh? What's that? Ohhhh Who won????
