Today I have a terrible cold, which is not so great for me, but possibly a blessing for *you* who are thus spared a long and tedious discussion of Fullmetal Alchemist Volume 8, and why the manga is so much richer than the anime, since I am much too congested to manage that level of thought. Whatever that level is.
I have Lucy with me at work today, and she is keeping my head from falling off, though I’m sure she’s incredibly bored. I have finally taken a real break, just an hour before my day is done. Fortunately, New York auditions were much more successful than they have sometimes been, and we have a lovely handful of folks to call back next week. It is starting to look like I may be attending callbacks on Monday, which I didn’t intend to do, and which will make for a very long week, as I’ll be leaving Wednesday to hold auditions in Nashville and Atlanta at the end of the week. With four tours going out in January, we’re trying to expand our files a bit, so we sent our PA to SETC auditions this year, and these auditions are a follow-up to that.
I’m feeling nostalgic this week, after seeing Christian (and even Mark, briefly!) on Monday in New York. I drift away from old friends much too easily, and that’s something I need to fix. Old friends, if you’re out there, don’t give up on me!
Lucy is growling at shadows, and I must get back to work.

You got to see Christian? How nice! Glad auditions were good and very sorry you have a cold.
Drink liquids and rest.

Hee! Yes, I hired Christian to be our reader for auditions, so I got to spend the day with him. Mark dropped him off in the morning, so that’s how I got to see him for a few minutes as well.
I may stay home tomorrow (or Friday), especially if it looks like I have to go back to NY on Monday. We’ll see how I feel.

Ahhhh. I should have remembered you were looking for a reader you knew.
I hope you get to have a day home. You do need to get well!
