So I'm starting to realize how hard it is to keep a blog while working a full time job.

I've been going non-stop these past few weeks. I've been working the midnight shift (this will change to day shift when we get closer to the show) and I get off at 7am. I go to sleep around 8 or 9 and wake up around 4 to take a shower. If I'm good, I leave my (north county) house around 5pm... giving me an hour to get to rehearsal. Since the city is pretty much isolated due to the closure of Hwy 40 and the Big Bend bridge out of commission... my only two options are going 270 to 44 or taking 70 through downtown to 44.

Much to my surprise, the 70 trip takes less time. Highway 270 is a BITCH during rush hour.

Anyway, I get to rehearsal and we've been doing pretty good with time. We get a ton of work done, still being able to stop and laugh at ourselves a couple times each night, and we've been getting out around 9-9:30.

I have more than enough time to get to work, but not enough time to go all the way back home. So, I usually stop and get something to eat and arrive at work a good thirty minutes early... which my coworkers love. I get off at 7am and start all over again.

Mike and I are living at my mom's place and saving for a house. I realize now that I really would like to find a place in the city... or close to it. I miss being so close to everything. It really puts me in a terrible mood when it takes me fifteen minutes to get to a damn highway.

And in an even more terrible and pissy mood when I have to make a loop of the St. Louis area in ninety degree temperatures in a car with NO AIR CONDITIONING.

I totally yelled at my Dad because I left him my car for two days and still no air conditioning. God, and I yelled at him on Father's Day. I'm such a terrible, pissy, daughter.

I think the only people subjected to my abuse have been my family. I haven't smacked anyone at rehearsal. I haven't had any need to (ha, ha) and St. Marks has A/C. :0)

But rehearsals are going very well. We are almost done blocking. I've put together a props list and I've started to gather some things. There are a lot of things I need to get done soon... like the cards for Rona and Panch, the kids' placards...

I've emailed a guy about a trophy. We may get a free trophy. Keeping my fingers crossed on that one.

I've been able to take a couple rehearsal photos (and some videos but I'm not sure if the cast would want me to post that...). If I can ever find my USB cord for my camera, I'll be able to do some uploadin'.

One of my duties during rehearsal has been to be all three guest spellers. I can spell if I can see the word. So, my technique has been to take my pencil and write the word out on my hand. Sometimes it works... sometimes it doesn't. I get pissed when I miss "easy" words; although I haven't missed the easy, easy words... I can't explain in any more detail because I don't want to give anything away. But for anyone wanting to be an audience member, don't be embarrassed. It's rigged. Totally rigged. There is absolutely no way you are going to take home the trophy. So don't even think about it.

Hey, at least you'll get some free juice.

It is an awesome experience to get up there and be apart of the Bee. So I do encourage everyone to try to be a "guest speller."

Alright. I have updated. I'll leave you with another clip. After watching this, I kind of wanted to punch this kid in his face... I wonder what he'll be like when he's thirty.
