Like A Whirlwind, It Never Ends
I apologize for the dearth of postiness this past week, but fear not, although it seems pretty clear the whole "blogging craze" has peaked, I'm not giving up on the online journal thing quite yet. I've just been rather busy, that's all.
Yesterday the office decided to play hooky (otherwise known as "staff retreat day"), and motored north to La Conner, a former sleepy fishing village turned arts colony/tourist destination (also known around these here-parts as the home of a Famouns American Author), about an hour's drive North of SeaTown. Ostensibly, we went on a staff retreat, and to plan the Boss' impending retirement party, but I think it was really a clever plot by our Freelance Coordinator to wangle a free trip up to Tuliptown. Unfortunately, it appears we missed the boat by about a week, because, aside from a little display garden, all the fields had already been topped for the season. That didn't deter co-worker, however, who still managed to spend an inordinate amount of time wandering around the two-acre site, bulb catalogue in-hand, scoping out potential purchases. I took some pictures of pretty flowers - I'll post a couple later, just for fun.
Still, we had a pleasant lunch at one of the town's innumerable riverside restaurants, before heading back to town, although it was something of a challenge to weather co-worker's non-stop backseat travelogue; some people have a knack for providing interesting and colorful anecdotes regarding the local scenery, history, personages, etc. - co-worker just rambles on about anything that happens to pop into her head.
And of course there's more show work to be done. Theatre A has a show opening on the 15th, and we're in the midst of assembling all the various and sundry technical elements (for example, last evening was spent hanging all the lighting equipment and electrical cabling). And we had our first reading for the new round of "Twilight Zone - Live!" episodes at Theater S on Sunday, with my first actual rehearsal this coming weekend. Toss working a fundraiser for a local Cinemateque, seeing a couple of shows, and trying to cram in gym visits, yard work, laundry, and a brace of more mundane activities over the next few days, and well, you can see how something like blogging might get relegated to the back burner.
