It’s Stuart’s Birthday today woooo hooooo!!!

We leave today for our friend’s wedding up in Vermont so had to get all this done early before our 1pm departure and deal with tenant drama, office drama, crapporama…so once again no sleep and early rise! UGH!

What I would give for sleep!!!! And Netflix!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I can’t believe its June!!!!!!!!!!!!

Although last day of May was annoying – between the office drama (that’s still ongoing), to picking something to wear to this wedding tomorrow and everything looking like I ate a whole cow, to losing pregnancy clothes in the laundry that I wanted to pack with me. Schmleh!!!!

You know, really the whole of May was annoying!

Every month has been annoying!!!

Can we tell I just need a break!!!!?????!!!!

I guess the fact that I am still standing is a token of success and a miracle!!

Let’s just focus on Stuart – HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABY!!

I know what you are thinking? How crazy is she? Two Beatles songs in a row!! Woah!! Wowza!! She gone crazo yo!! – clearly I am after that remark!!! HAHA!! These songs both just popped up by themselves on my ipod shuffle – you think I have time to choose songs????!!!! I don’t even have time to pee!!!!!!!!!!

It must be a tribute to Stuart since he is out-of-town on work in Chicago until Saturday and The Beatles are his “thang” so perhaps the ether misses him?? Or I miss him?? Or my ipod misses him??

Soooooo…..

Crazy crazy crazy day. Crazy crazy week, or 10 days (or YEAR…don’t get me started!!)

But yet another crazy crazy day.

What is it about being so super busy and then getting MORE stuff on top of that, all at the same time?! Huh??!! When you think that it’s just not possible to get any busier and boom somehow it happens!! Things always happen at once, I know. But, this is happening a lot so somewhere there needs to be a break or a “normal” day or at least “semi-normal”….whatever that means. It just can’t be crazy EVERY day, you know??

Although, it’s starting to get to that shake-my-head-with-tight-mouthed-smile place as there just is nothing else I can do but that.

I was on my blackberry through-out the whole of rehearsal today. Literally. Sadly. I was on my blackberry so much that it died before 2pm!!!!!!!!!!!!! That’s how much!! Luckily, I thought about bringing my charger with me today otherwise I would have been screwed. The last two days it died at around 7pm so was do-able so I made sure to pack the charger on me today – and thank god I remembered!

And of course it’s just lucky that I am the queen of successful multi-tasking! Or able to be. Or also good at sneaking me doing work while in rehearsal.

Although this is actually kind of sad and frustrating to tell you the truth, as this is supposed to be an amazing opportunity for me to be working with the one and only Jose Rivera, and I’m already splitting my understudying hat with co-producing hat, and that is okay, but then to also be soooo relied upon for office work is just a little sad. It is frankly a little unfair. But I see no other way around it unfortunately. I feel too guilty, I have a new employee that just started and needs help, and rightly so, at the office when I am in rehearsal, and I am just better at dealing with the multi-tasking then my boss is and just know more or able to help out better, especially in the times of panic today!!!

Every day cannot be a crisis though, as literally over the last 10 days, it seems there is always something with a deadline, that’s life or death in nature or that is how it is presented, at work….

I can’t say ‘when will the drama stop’ as I thrive on drama being an actor 🙂 BUT….I have enough drama all over and around and coming out of my armpits (yup, crazy!) that the office drama on top, right now, is just…..like…..

No words really.

Just this…

First day of Jose Rivera rehearsals today!! WOO HOO!!!

An exciting day in terms of it being the first day of an amazing opportunity but the day was just hectic to say the least.

It started out with a slow boat to China…the trains today were soooooooooo slow….and not just in the morning it turned out, it was ALL trains ALL day!! The train system was just out to get me when I had such a busy day! Had to go to work and then dash (or slow boat it) to rehearsal, then be on call with calls forwarded and my blackberry flashing on the table in front of me for five hours and dealing with that, and then dashing (slow boating) back to the office to deal with things and catch up….and still here!! Sooooo sad!!! I am guessing the train back home will be a slow boat too!! Boo 😦

(this guy looks peaceful at least though!!!)

And you know what slow boating meant….more friggin’ tip-toe time!!!! As if I need more of that, seriously!! And more standing time! Ugh.

Next up, the escalators didn’t work at Grand Central and they are loooooong! Now granted, I always walk up them but at least they are moving!! It makes such a difference, and you can’t stop to rest as you have to keep up with the crowd in front and behind or you’ll get schmooshed! I had a flashback to my stairs cardio at the office the other day – miserable!

One of those days….and it just continued and continued!

My boss is out of the country, my intern has finals for law school, the new employee is in the Bahamas getting her visa, and daytime rehearsals started today……….

So the best I could do was watch my blinking and flashing and call forwarding blackberry, and every break I got in rehearsal, (and some sneaky under the table moments),I checked and responded and dealt with office life that was still going on around! Which should normally be fine but this week has been CRAZY!! I mean, talk about drama – there is always drama around me, and with me, I know I know – I am a drama queen – but I fully accept and take responsibility for my OWN drama but I am not causing the office drama! Just bad timing week with everyone out but little me to fend off everything! Which is fine….just complaining…thank you blog 🙂

And thank you kind ears…or eyes…reading 🙂

I did have to change my cell phone voice message as the calls were being forwarded and I realized I couldn’t have them be ringing the office and then getting transferred to me singing “Za-Za-Zoe”!!! So have an odd professional message now…which I apologize for…BUT it will be back hopefully over the weekend, after another day tomorrow that will be exactly like this!

So don’t fear folks the singing message you all love so much will be back in no time!

Okay, need to get out of here as been working like a crazy woman for over 12 hours now!!!!!!!!!!!!!
