You know what makes me feel better?Â Josh Groban, that’s what.
This is what happens to your eyes on Fairydust.
Just say no, kids.Â Just say no.
I apologize for my silence yesterday and today.Â I’ve just been on the okay-edge of sick all week, and I came home Tuesday night to be sick and haven’t had a breath of rest since.Â Que c’era, c’era.Â
Tech week is going well, I suppose.Â Bryan asked me last night what I thought of our show, and for the first time in a long time, I didn’t care.Â I told him.Â We’re just at a point where the show is what it is, and I’m happy with what I’m doing, and that’s all I can control. (The show, by the way, is actually very sweet.Â And quick.Â Sweet and quick.)
So I got, perhaps, one of the greatest compliments EVER the other day.Â From Rankin.Â Now, keep in mind that Rankin was very much a fatherly-figure to me since his son and I were attached at the hip growing up.Â And although he is a very sweet father, he and I were never very affectionate to eachother.Â The other day he told me that I have improved onstage 150% since high school, and that I was one of the smartest actresses he’s seen.Â “Keep that up, kid,” he said, “And you’ve got what it takes to make it professionally.”
It really meant a lot to me.Â Just thought I’d share.
My eyes are huge today.Â I think we’re going to have to forego stage makeup on my eyes.Â I hate that; it makes me feel like a diva.Â Like my precious skin is too good for the dollar-store makeup.Â But when I can’t open my eyes.. well, I think it’s worthy of diva-ness.
If Will & Grace ever makes a stage play, I am SOOOO Karen.
Enough rambling today.Â I’m off to play nurse.
