I can't actually believe it's February already...and almost Half Price Chocolate Day! It's nice to have something to look forward to! My mother's birthday was Feb 13th, and she'd be 112 if she were still alive today. Damn, I'm getting old. Addy Mags has a birthday on the 17th...The Big Three!
The Austin Theatre Project project [Title of Show]
I'm working on closes on the 18th and RKJB Entertainment's For the Love of Mahalia
opens on the 23rd, so this is a busy month for me. The ATP play requires little of me besides my presence, as it has a cast of four, one costume per actor and contemporary, so I'm just there to make sure their buttons get put back if they pull a kamikaze move. Mahalia, on the other hand, is a 1960s period piece, with an occasional foray into the past from there. Including one of her iconic (damn, I hate that word, but sometimes it works) concert gowns. Fun.
Both daughters have moved out, so it's just The Teen and myself, trying to dig out of my Hoarder's Paradise with the help of four cats and the boxer.
Speaking of Fun Times, a man got murdered to death at a local convenience store...something that indicates Round Rock is truly a Big City, and on its way to becoming the Crime Capitol of Texas. This is in spite of our police cars being repainted from their former white with purple and gold letters
to fierce black with big white letters.
I'm reassured about public safety now. Aren't you?
