in which I try to get a grip.

I’m glad some of you enjoyed yesterday’s post. While at lunch today with my posse, we noticed that snow was falling ONCE AGAIN. I threatened to end it all with a plastic knife, just so I wouldn’t have to walk back to work in the never-ending flakes, but my friend Dwayne talked me off the ledge.

I obviously need to get a grip, since there are still a couple of months left of winter. And while a girl can wish that all of the snow is over, it just doesn’t look like that’s going to be true (if the 10-day forecast is at all accurate).

SO, yesterday I was emailing with my friend Jen. Our mutual friend, Shawna, who we both used to work with, moved down to North Carolina a few years ago. We decided that, instead of blowing a couple hundred dollars on tickets to go see Billie Joe Armstrong in American Idiot, we were going to put that money towards plane tickets to go visit Shawna in March. Rumor has it, it’s in the 70s in North Carolina in March. And that sounds pretty darn delicious right about now.

Speaking of Rumors, I have a cast! The second night of auditions on Tuesday went great, and I am SUPER happy with the group I have. It’s made up of some new people that I’ve never worked with before, and others that I have. We have our first read-thru of the script on Sunday night. Can’t. Wait. Plus a production meeting on Monday night. So we’re definitely gearing up now.

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

PS I really encourage you to read the poem about the snow that my blogging pal Elizabeth wrote in yesterday’s comments. I only wish I wrote it myself.

I think you mean "friend and #1 commenter (as judged by both quantity and quality) Dwayne."

And in all fairness, I just suggested that you would have better luck sawing through your thigh with the plastic knife than you would stabbing yourself with it. But hey, if that's all it took to change your mind, then I will happily accept the title of hero.

You were right, New England isn't for the weak! But good for you for planning a vacation. Sounds much needed! :)

Posse... I love that word. Do you all break windows on your way between the deli and the UPS store?

Yeah, those plane tickets sound like a good idea. Although the way you portray your mounting hysteria is hilarious, I am worried that you're going to snap and take a blow torch to the white stuff lol
