Chicago, that is. Hello from the Windy City! I found a place to live in Andersonville, which is north of the heart of the city, with two other roommates and a pair of cats. Yes, cats. One of whom (the shyer one) has decided she loves me and wants to be with me all the time. Apparently my reputation hasn't preceeded me. I'm feeling very welcomed to this city. My roommates are both very nice and helpful--one of whom is actually an actor in the show--and I finally met the director of the Castle. Finally. So, even though I'm in a huge city, a million miles away from anything that's familiar, I'm already feeling welcomed. Today's goal is to get a CTA travelcard (which is like an Oyster card, but not as cool) and catch up on rehearsals. The show is very movement-based, so I need to go decipher some blocking notes. The ASM has been very organised up to this point, which is great. Now I just need to step up and make sure that the transition goes smoothly. One thing I've discovered since being back from London is I am definitely more assertive, whether it's dealing with store clerks or telephone call center employees. Rrrarr.
Right. Nothing much else to say. I've been hearing from a lot of Point people--so if you're in the Chi-town way, come along and see me.
