Real Busy w/OUR TOWN
Friday, February 03, 2012
Sorry, sorry, sorry - I have been so busy that I have NOT been domestic. I was offered a part in a distinguished production of OUR TOWN at the Broad Stage in Santa Monica, CA - directed by the reknowned David Cromer (he won a genius grant in 2010) - & I could NOT turn it down....
Great experience - did I say it starred Helen Hunt? Boy, once again - they are ALL so miniscule - any of you out there who have any doubts - or those teenagers in anguish - please be reminded that people in show biz nowadays are TEENY! Not an OUNCE of fat anywhere! (Not me - but then I am a character actress, no?)
One of the pleasures of the play was the opening party - & I WAS able to take out that long pink ultrasuede vest I had bought, which had just been hanging in the closet - I wore it on top of a sweater & my blue corduroys with a blue velvet scarf - & I was one of the warmer ones at that patio on a chilly Santa Monica roof restaurant! Hubby came & enjoyed the glitz - it's nice to have a chance to wear one of my bargains & show him the overall purpose of my wardrobe! (Gee, I spent less than $20 on that vest....)
Domestic hints? I see people on the net complaining about touching up grey hair & using hair mascara - but I usually use a combination of red blonde Roux tint dabbed at my greying temples - or put on HOT strong coffee (also covers grey) - Finally back on the computer catching up -
Hubby's taking piles of my freebie magazines to school to distribute. Apparently, even the kids like to look at the pictures when they come into his office & it calms them down to leaf through them. As they are inner city kids, I am sure that they don't get to look at magazines that often....
Through my freebie sites I also always look out for freebies for school. Just signed up for a Lego magazine today because I thought the kids would like it. I also send for posters and other materials which hubby can bring to school....
Also looking at the pix to see if there are images I could use in my homemade Valentine....It's getting close. There is a coupon giveaway I put up on my Facebook page (I often share deals there) - It's at pamelaruthmunro - because there are loads of "Pamela Munro"s in the USA. Who knew?
A musical friend tipped me off to FREE tickets to see a little opera by the L.A. Opera at the Cathedral - This time I called in and actually managed to GET them. (They go very FAST.)
Oh, hubby is home from work - gotta go, see ya!
