Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow...

It's going to anyway.

For those snowiphiles among my readers, a wee chart for your amusement.

CBC Snow Chart

And now I'm going out to deal with the snowy piles.

P.S. I live in St. John's. Whitehorse and Yellowknife are considered Arctic cities. And yet, we hold the record for snow. It's an honour I'd pass on, given my druthers.

Watch this.

So, as I was saying...



No, I wasn't. I haven't written anything in weeks. My bad

So... renovations at work... much mess, smell, dust, noise and I am about to be kicked out of my office while they paint and lay the new carpet. Which works well, as I'm taking next week off as one of my oldest (as in having known me the longest - I have older friends), dearest friends is coming to visit for a week. And when I get back to work, voila! newly spruced up office.

Tonight was opening night of the first production I haven't been involved in (except to lay out the program) since 2005. It's been torture. All night long, I've been looking at the clock thinking,

"6:30 - actors' call time."

"7:00 - voice check, sound check, headset check, double check the props time."

"7:30 - ensure the stage is clear in preparation for..."

"7:40 - house opening."

"8:00 - curtain!"

It's now 10:16 and I'm dying to know how it went!

The weird thing is, this is the first winter in three years that I haven't been dragging myself to at least three rehearsals a week and I still feel like I'm really busy every evening. Granted, I've been going to the gym most evenings, which fills an hour and a half, but still... how did I ever manage?

I wonder how it went...
