Where did the time go? Between plays, working out, rehearsing, studying, and just trying to have fun the blog apparently took a month-long sabbatical. It has been quite the month though and there are plenty of new things to catch you up on.
Most recently I got the opportunity to fire a starter pistol. (I was unaware that in my current production of The Purse Thief I would actually be shooting a gun off stage). So it was quite a surprise to me when they handed it to me at our last rehearsal. I was terrified…….OH MAN…… I had no idea how loud it was when you were actually holding the thing that was doing the firing. My ears were ringing and my lungs did not appreciate the smell…. so if you want to see the last person you ever thought would be handling a pistol come check out my show……. at the Renton Civic Theatre……Tonight…….and tomorrow and next week.
On Thursday we had to say goodbye to some awesome friends as they start their next awesome journey of their life!
At Rena’s goodbye party I was reunited (and it feels so good) with some coworkers and I got to see this beautiful baby for the first time.
Was a fun adventure. It makes life a little easier, although pay millions for properties instead of $500 takes some time to get used to. You can choose to be a cell phone, race car, jet plane, cheese burger, roller blade or a skate board. The properties have sky rocketed, the pawns are technology, food, and money based AND it is very easy to lose track of how much you actually have spent on your “credit card”. I think this version of monopoly really shows how times have changed. But all in all I still had fun.
We have also watched some great movies including:
MARIO PARTY 9
Jaryl and I were unaware that this was even coming out. So when we found out last-minute we rushed down to game stop and traded in some unwanted games for it. This is the first Mario Party where they tried to do something new. And I see why they might want to do that but it sort of failed. Not only did they take away the awesome way of rolling the dice by lifting the wii remote up, they completely changed the goal of the game and they way you get around the board. Now everybody is in the same “car” and moves towards the end at the same time. There are mini stars and negative “ztars”. Mini games are not played after everyone has had a turn, but only if someone lands on the space. Save your fifty bucks and get a classic Mario Party.
WE finally got to see our long-lost friend Robert! The silly boy bought plane tickets for this month instead of last month and so it landed him here in the MIDDLE of the week. Which made for an exhausting week! But we did get to go to the AWESOME Hot dog stand Dog in the Park at the Bellevue Mall. Not 1……not 2…but FIVE different kinds of veggie dogs. SO delicious (for veggies and meat eaters alike). This is a must go! And then we discovered a NEW self-serve frozen yogurt place in Juanita. (my favorite kind of dessert) It’s calledChilly Wave Yogurtand they are PENGUIN themed! (Which is Jaryl’s Favorite).
So there it is. A brief overview of some of the activities we have partaken in…..OH and I ran down the up escalator. That is all.
