“What do you think of your friends?”
That they’re the best damn things since the invention of ever!!
I’ve got a group of friends where we don’t have to be drinking to have a great time. Where being different from the crowd isn’t just tolerated, it’s celebrated. Where much caffeine is consumed, much fun had and much talking about nearly any topic is had.
And, possibly best of all, costume parties with ridiculous themes and equally ridiculous shenanigans.
“What I would find in your bag”
The contents of my bag varies hugely, depending on what I’ve got on that day.
So, because I’ve got a show on my mind, I’ve picked my standard “going to rehearsal” pile of crap.
A fairly succinct summary of the stuff you'd find in my bag for a show
Pens, markers and pencils
Ruler & highlighters
Gaffer & Lekkie tape
Mini-screwdriver set, selection of screws
String & thin rope
Paperclips & Rubber Bands
Bobby-pins, hair ties & a comb
Mini first aid kit, inhaler & aspirin
USB to mini USB converter, USB hub, Apple data cable, AUX cable, LAN cable
Candy, crackers and muesli
Phone (Stopwatch, torch, internet, voice recorder, games)
Spare black t-shirt, socks & stockings
MP3 Player & headphones
The hardest part of being a Stage Manager is picking which things you think you’re going to need that day. Sometimes it turns out that a hammer would have been a great idea, most of the time you’ll know in advance if you’re going to need it.
Dan, however, doesn’t have these problems! Check out his short list here.
Ms Sofie has a rather special post, although not in the good way. Read her post over here.
And I’ve no idea where Briony is, I’m going to blame the snow and give her the benefit of the doubt for now. Hopefully she’ll be back into the swing tomorrow, once the snow in Welly has settled down.
“A letter to your parents”
This is an interesting one, seeing as I don’t actually have the standard nuclear family. So I’ve chosen to write three short letters. One to my Father, one to my (now ex-step) Dad and one to my Mumski.
Onwards! Continue reading
(Pfft, you know what helps? Remembering to POST your post before getting distracted by geekery)
“Something you crave for a lot”
Group hug time before we hit the road for my move up to Auckland for Uni. Nino is all of the confused.
“What makes you different from everyone else?”
I’m me, no one else is. Continue reading
“A picture of something that makes you happy”
Raspberry White-Chocolate Cheesecake, made from scratch
Making delicious treats for my friends makes me happy.
And photography makes me very happy, especially when it turns out well!
I also rather enjoy writing, which is what Briony’s post for today is about.
So Cats, what’s something that makes you happy?
“Someone you can see yourself marrying/being with in the future”
Why this weird looking creature of course… Continue reading
