- Remember how we were going to slowly relax the flea fighting measures? Well early last week they just stopped dead, due to my tech and having no time. Over the weekend I got a few bites on my lower legs but they didn't so much look like flea bites (and I was home so little it seemed unlikely anyway). This morning I woke up with a bloom (a rash, a pattern?) of a dozen bites on my right lower back, right around where the waistline of a pair of pants would be. Dammit. I'll be vacuuming later today.

- Previews start tonight. Technically this show is in good shape, though the director still has tons of acting notes. Which is annoying at this stage when we should be polishing the show that already exists, not trying to bend it into a new show.  (Also, if you want the show to be shorter you shouldn't have added 15 minutes of stuff.  Taking the unnecessary pauses out isn't going to equal 15 minutes.)

- I got five words from tigrkittn and I am acknowledging here that I have been lax in finishing them (I have two written) but I wil do it by the end of this week.

- Apparently the west coast had something to prove and there was also an earthquake here last night, J felt it at the apartment.  Turning on news radio yesterday was fun all day.

- The actual professor for my class is still out this week, so we're only having class two of four days when another prof can cover.  I think that may be saving my sanity this week.

Alright, I need to go for a run and then pul the calamine lotion back out.

Ugh, my dogs have fleas. And we put frontline type stuff on them, and yet they seem to have MORE fleas. The good news is the fleas are sticking to the dogs and not biting us, and since it's now been 48 hours since putting chemicals on them, we get to go a less toxic route and give them a bath!

We actually felt the east coast earthquake a bit in Maine! My friend was leaning on her car when it started shaking, and she actually assumed someone had gotten locked in her trunk! (she works in a pretty rough neighborhood) And then she found out later that we had some earthquake vibrations.

When the flea issue was at its worst last month I was seriously considering frontline - or at least a flea color worn as a fetching bracelet - for myself. They're tenacious little buggers. We shouldn't have to do the full shock and awe spectrum again, just get back to vacuuming a few times a week.

Wow, that someone was locked in the trunk being a viable alternative is crazy. I can usually tell there's an earthquake out here because I get quesy - motion sickness.

Dude, I feel you on the "noooooooo! The bugs!" front and on the "play not getting any shorter" front. Suddenly our next show has two acts, but was previously advertises as 90 minutes no intermission. And ants decided they like my bathroom. A lot. Booo. Toxic chemicals to come.

I hate it when one acts become two - it's no good for audience expectation. This show as written is around 2:10 - the director added 15 minutes of frou - and is then astonished that the show is 2:25 (without intermission).

Ew, I'm sorry about the ants. Hopefully your adventure with toxic chemicals will be entirely successful.
