I haven't posted in a while , but I have been reading of everyone's adventures with great interest.

R and I made a fast trip home to see the new and existing great nephews. There is quite a variety now.
We have a 4 year old, a 1 year old and a 5 month old . My step great niece is 9 years old and having
a grand time being "mommy" to them all.
It is fun to swan in, see everyone and go home.

I've done and closed another show. It was my last of the season. The cast was nice and low key.
So I was able to leave with a good one.

There have been lots of shake ups at work. The economy has affected us too. Our kick ass
end of the season musical was cancelled. It was to be one of those debuts that goes on to New York.
Well , the producers couldn't get the backing to do it . So we were left with a massive last minute hole in our season.
We ended up reviving a small musical from last season. No one knows how that will go.

The upshot of all this is that all year round staff will be taking pay cuts. And six people were let go 2 weeks ago.
There will be fewer shows next year as well . So we seasonal employees will also be making less.
In my case , not so much less. But still it does hurt us all.

But I am spending the extra off weeks doing some free lance work. I have finally decided to pimp myself out as a
seamstress for hire. So far I have some sci- fi related costume projects on the way.
And this week I got a call to work on a Lifetime Network TV series. ( for some very nice cash)
The lesson here is to get off my rear and be proactive. I'm glad I did!

The other fun thing I have going is my new technology. I have maintained my status in the cult of Steve
by getting an iphone. It is so addictive that it scares me a little. I spent my backstage downtime during the
last show reading fan fiction on my phone. It is faster to check the weather by iphone app than by computer!
I look forward to teach it and myself lots of new tricks.

Cheers!

The Lifetime tv job sounds like a great opportunity! TV always has extra money. I'm mildly jealous of the tv.

I'm sorry to hear the Alliance is being effected by this crappy economy.

Yay for grand neices/nephews though!

Well we had to have some of the pain too.
As long as the doors remain open we consider it a win.

Yeah my sister did the child bearing , and her girls are keeping on
with the tradition.

SQUEE! I was just thinking about you yesterday and here you are!

Seamstress for hire, eh? Hmmm. I've been debating a steam-punk costume, which is far beyond my limited skills, much as I love my sewing machine. We may need to talk $$, girlfriend. I would much rather pay a friend than a stranger.

Also, iPhone! WOOT! If you like unscrambling words, Chicktionary is currently my favorite game and Ocarina is just too cool for words, even though I don't play it often.
