Friday Free-For-All – 06/16/17

I was not cast in the professional show I auditioned for last weekend. Honestly, it’s just fine with me. I knew going in that it was a long shot, as I’m technically too young or too old for any of the roles. It was more about taking a good opportunity to be seen by a company I’d always wanted to work with than actually thinking I might get in. And having worked on two shows in a row through the spring and summer, I know I’ll be glad for the break from rehearsals. And maybe, just maybe, they’ll keep me in mind for future shows.

This cold really derailed my week. I missed two scheduled runs and two CF classes, not to mention a day at work. Blergh. It’s looking more and more like I made the right choice in deciding not to register for the Stowe 8-Miler too far in advance. At this point, it seems unlikely I will be running it.

I’m currently obsessed with the TV show Once Upon a Time. I know I’m really late to the party on this one, but I LOVE it. After I finished watching Buffy, I needed a new guilty-pleasure binge watch, and Once Upon a Time fits the bill perfectly. I will be the first to admit it’s not perfect (inconsistent timelines and plot holes abound), but one thing is bugging the crap out of me: no matter where they are or what’s going on (war, destruction, camping in the jungles of Neverland for five days), Mary Margaret and Emma ALWAYS have perfect winged eyeliner. I’m sorry, I call BULLSHIT on that. Not possible. But I will continue to watch anyway. Because FAIRYTALES!

Someone recently found my blog with the search term “hangry,” and it couldn’t tickle me more. I’m always happy to know I’m not the only one who suffers from the debilitating effects of this horrific condition. Maybe we should start a support group…

What TV show are you currently loving?

    Sad that you have felt like crap – it is always the worst when the weather is nice and warm to feel lousy 😦 At least you saved money 🙂

    Oh well on the audition – as you say, it was an experience, and hopefully one you will repeat and eventually land a great role with them!

    On search terms – my post on ‘runderwear’ for men continues to gain traffic and comments about 3.5 years later … you never know what will bring someone! Hangry is a great one! 🙂

    As for Once Upon a Time – we watched some of the first season, but really hooked more into Grimm, and watched it through the season finale. Even in the first season there was too much of the stuff you mention, and every time since then we tried to watch there was even more – oh well.

    And I had to laugh about the makeup comments … we lost track of the show Quantico after the mid-first season break. Part of it was despite being on the run, hiding in woods, and so on … Priyanka Chopra always looked completely gorgeous and put together with flowing hair and so on. Um, no.

      That always kills me! I’m like, I don’t even look like that when I TRY, let alone after being in the woods for three days. It’s funny where I draw then line at suspension of disbelief. Like, ok cool, ya’ll are fairytale characters, but I’m NOT on board with how your makeup is always flawless, lol!

    I actually haven’t watch much tv in the last month or more! I’ve started from the beginning with Grey’s Anatomy for some reason and just finished watching 13 reasons why. I’m hoping I find a summer show that I can enjoy soon!

      Grey’s is on my list to watch eventually, but the world is so serious right now that I’m on a comedy kick. Ben and I are also watching Parks and Rec together, which is great.
