Vegas, baby

J and I had been talking about taking a vacation just for us, and finally the stars aligned enough for us to be able to do so.

I am working this week on a writer's retreat that TW does.  Essentially they bring in writers with new projects in process (this time all musicals) and give them the space to work without distractions.  I'm here because we also hire a few actors for this week who are available to sing or read as necessary so the authors can here what things sound like out of their heads.  It's a really neat idea, if a little frustrating to my organized soul.  Having actors just hanging out goes against so many self-imposed rules of scheduling.

This means I will be working this Sunday during the Packers/Bears game which is sad.  I'll have to sneak a beer in at some point during the afternoon just so I feel like I'm rooting for my team appropriately.

My jaw is still sore more often than not, though it hasn't gotten stuck again.  I need to make an appointment to see the doctor next week, I'm just not sure where to start.

The LJIdol topic this week is 'Icarus'.  I have a lot of interesting ideas or phrases in my head, but nothing to build a whole entry on, at least not yet.  In my head everything feels like poetry, but I'm not so great at that so I may keep pushing until I find another shape for things.
