[don't be afraid; it's only me]  
I ran around in a pretty purple dress for two hours survived my first rehearsal of Midsummer last night! \o/

I love Puck. Srs.

Uuuummm... I shouldn't have gotten so worried about feeling awkward jumping into a production that's been rehearsing since... March... and has been performed half a dozen times.

Well, it's still pretty obvious that I'm like HAI GUYS I DIDN'T DO ANY OF THE WORK AND NOW I'M HERE FOR THE FUN PART, but this company is way too all-around wonderful to mind. Which is why I'm doing this in the first place, of course. :3

Anyhoo, anyone with a good memory would be able to run through the important scenes twice and be set to do what I'm supposed to, but I can barely keep track of my social security number, so eltea has promised me a cheat sheet. I may yet survive. :D

And getting through all the vine-draped doorways while one is wearing wings isn't quite as bad as I expected. It's all in the part-them-before-you maneuver. Y'know.

And I get to make lots of funny faces. 8D

Anyway, opening night is Saturday, and I'll be flipping out by then, given that I haven't been on a stage in front of an audience since April of 2008.

Then again, I had a bunch of lines in that show, which was a one-act (for those of us who are new to the Life and Times of Tierfal), which does make a pretty considerable difference me-wise. Mostly because public speaking is the devil, and acting is the greatest pastime since... writing.

ANYWAY, that's super-exciting, and I'll try to give you guys lots of pictures of the amazing makeup and our frigging aweome giant stage and stuff. :D

In other news...


I think Peanut ties with Achmed for my favorite of Je-fa-fa's friends. XD

Also, the FML alternative: mylifeisaverage.com. I LOL'D A LOT. XD

Good luck for the real thing, darling. :3

Thank you! ^^

Don't check the computer for a couple days, and suddenly you're a fairy!

Are you Puck him/herself? Or are you Mustard Seed, et al?

Be spritely and puckish, my friend!

Puck is one of my dream roles, but the guy who's Puck in this show is so amazing that I'd never want to take it from him -- he does it exactly the way I envision it being done, which is just awesome. :D I myself am Moth. ^^

If I think about them, and my bank account, and my student ID, I honestly can't remember them. I have to rely on muscle/reflexive number memory something sketchy. XD

Eeeee, ♥

Hahaha. I'm all over the brightly-colored, vaguely-disturbing funny shit. 8D

Aaah! Jeff Dunham is awesome! xD Peanut is my favourite. My aunt, bro and I are constantly imitating him - much to my mum's chagrin - and he's just AWESOME! 8D

I can't tell you how many times we were all "Je-fa-faaaa, dunhaaaaam....dot cooooom"-ing in the car to Singapore. XDDD

YAY TO PURPLE DRESS! 8D Seriously, costumes are half the fun of plays. :3

Hee, Peanut wins!! 8D

And hahahaha, I'm sure she loved that! XDDD

I never grew out of dress-up. 8DDD

It's going to be awesome if I don't screw it up! XD And yeah, since I'm in a cluster of fairies almost the whole time, and all the other members of said cluster know what they're doing, it's a lot easier than having an entirely independent role. :D

Acting <3 Funny faces are awesome. Vines and wings do sound really difficult, but...apparently they're not? Also, cheat sheet ftw.

Walter's probably my favorite of Je-fa-fa's. Or José Jalapeño on a Stick.

It's all in the technique. My major wing problem seems to be the rest of the time, when I forget I'm wearing them and try to duck under set pieces. XD

Walter is awesome as well! 8D
