Talk about burning the candle at both ends - I'm knackered, and have a stupidly busy week ahead of me.
Was a good weekend though. Dan and I were up until 4.30am Friday night playing WoW - only reason we were on so late is because I had started making my Lekku
, and needed to wait for the latex layers to dry.
Consequentially got up late-ish on Saturday, pottered about doing more on the tails, re-dying my hair red, and playing WoW - then stayed up silly late (3.30am) again whilst Dan did some paintwork on them.
Sunday I got up earlier, convinced that the Star Wars game started at 1pm, found out that it didn't start until 7pm, which was a bit annoying as I had to cancel plans I'd made with nortysarah
- really sorry Sarah!
Didn't do much on Sunday, except find stuff for the game, then about an hour before going to get reindeerflotila
I got the worst headache. Finally found some drugs about 10 mins before, so took them and headed out hoping it would go - I'd spent most of the weekend making the damn Lekku there was no way I was going to miss it.
Got to game after a smooth journey into London (I decided to drive all the way in), and after a pint of coke the headache started to fade. Was struck by severe self-consciousness when in make up and with the Lekku on my head, but managed to leave girls loos and integrate with the others.
Soon got over my fear when I had loads of positive comments head on me, and got XP award for costume before time in was even called. Game was a lot of fun, lots of politics (like Vampire only less fangs and blood) and a good laugh. I didn't do or say much as I was finding my feet - but I will go again.
Got a bit concerned on the drive back that my GPS was trying to abduct me - by leading me south over the river, instead of north, but eventually it got me home. It turned out it was set to avoid the congestion charge areas, which is why it took us the long weird way.
Got home at 12.30, crashed out by 1am.
This week I am out every night - Monday to Wednesday is the Dress/Tech Rehearsals, then Thursday to Saturday is the Performances, finally Sunday is take down.
I want a rest!
