What do you do when your project is done?
Practise make-up for Hedwig, of course! Our costume designer was looking a little frazzled, so I offered to take on the task of designing and doing Hedwig's makeup. Hopefully it will look better on Angus, since he's blond and his eyebrows won't show up as much. But I had a lot of fun, regardless. Note: If you are ever in London and need make-up, the Charles Fox store in Covent Garden is a HAVEN of COSMETICS.
It's been really rainy and chilly here lately, so I have been spending a lot of time en suite. (that means in my room) I finished my dramaturgy portfolio and handed it in this morning, and I've been revising "The Glass Eye" and, in my free time, doing laundry and CLIMBING THE WALLS. I watched TV for about ten minutes this morning, and it informed me that Iraq was on the verge of civil war, so now I am also having angst about that. (it's a testament to how truly multi-faceted my life is that I was talking about Hedwig and the Angry Inch and now I'm on to Iraq...)
Sometimes I feel very disconnected from what is going on in the rest of the world--which is odd since I'm here in the newspaper capital of the universe. It's hard to remember sometimes that America is AT WAR, even if it hasn't been formally declared. I feel like I should be planting a victory garden...or donating my pot (I only have one)...but then the President says the best thing to do is to buy stuff and get the economy going...to which I reply, "But Mr. President, I want to buy a Japanese car because it gets 30 miles to the gallon..." and then I feel guilty because I am taking jobs away from the American people by not polluting the earth. This being a liberal, it's a problem.
