- Today is the first day of rehearsal for the new show.  It's kind of amazing how much this always feels like the first day of school - meeting new people, wanting to make a good impression, remembering to bring your lunch and pencils and things.  You'd think after nearly ten years this would just be work, but there are always a few butterflies on the first day, as well as a lot of running around.

- I'm still on track with my February goals.  No fast food is getting a bit harder, now that I'm in rehearsal and busier it seems more attractive.  More the speed than the food though.

- I'm planning to go for a run tomorrow, for the first time in months.  It will be good to go faster again, though I'm nervous about how much I may have lost.

- I went roller skating yesterday for a friend's birthday.  It was so much fun!  I did lose skin on the insides of both of my ankle bones - I'm not sure if it's the rental skates or my feet.  But the muscle memory from grade school was amazing, after a turn or two around I was feeling steady again.  I've also discovered that as I've gotten older going in circles in one direction for hours is a lot harder on my hips and knees than it used to be - guh.  But I really enjoyed it.  My inline skates are a bit too small so I don't use them very often, and I'm thinking I should get new skates and get out there more.  But I might want to be quad skates next time.

I hope your rehearsals and the show go very well for you! And I can imagine how it would be like the first day of school all over again... even ten years later! That has to be a big nerve wracking! :-)

Good luck with your run... don't push yourself *too* hard... be careful with you!

Glad you had a good time skating and didn't break yourself. :-)

It's always interesting to watch how actors react to each other, and see who already knows each other. It turns out one of the actresses used to be a showgirl. I really want her to start telling stories.

Stories? I want pictures! :-p

I keep forgetting you're in CA because I thought, "RUN? IN THIS WEATHER??". Yeah, not everyone lives where it won't stop snowing and/or get warm!! Hee.

Hee! It's 50 and foggy at the moment which is practically perfect running weather. I do not think I am so committed a runner that I would attempt it in the weather you guys have been having.

It was interesting, the rink rented both in-line and quad skates. Someone asked me why I had chosen the quads and I looked at them a little blankly. I was at a roller skating rink - you skated with quads, duh (my age was showing just a little). I think derby would be tons of fun, though I would have to get better on my skates than I am now.

good luck with everything. just letting you know that i added you to my friends list! hope all is well with you!

Lovely, I'm in favor of new friends. Tagging you back.
