I am enjoying a very thoroughly earned day off, after a serious whirlwind of a week.

Monday morning, I got a call from someone that I’d been going to be doing some stage manager work for, but the show fell through. “Are you available for the next 10 days, starting tomorrow?” he asks, to which I enthusiastically respond “Absolutely!”.

Next thing I know, I’m talking to the PSM (production stage manager) for this event, and he’s giving me the rundown. Then I’m emailing with another guy about contracts and schedule. Tuesday morning, I’m onsite, running around in circles because no one has any paperwork for me, and getting started with the gig - ASM (assistant stage manager) for the Invictus Games opening and closing ceremonies!

I have had a week of 12+ hour days, and I definitely don’t want to know how many miles I’ve walked. Opening ceremonies were last night, and they went off beautifully. I’m working with an absolutely amazing team of people, and just love everything. Today, especially, I’m loving sitting down and not wearing shoes.

One show down, one to go. Closing ceremonies is going to be very much a different animal - it’s all musical groups. On the bright side, we won’t have to deal with having Secret Service people everywhere!

For anyone interested, https://goo.gl/photos/fuGJrnS9kabSZRVV8 is my album of photos from stuff for the opening ceremonies. Not a ton of pictures, since, well, I was kind of busy. XD

This is amazing. Apparently, the US leads the world in Nobel Laureates and Lawnmower deaths.

Woohoo! I officially have a show!

We opened for press tonight, general opening is tomorrow. And tonight, for the first time, everything totally clicked and it was AMAZING. It's a hard piece of theatre, but utterly worth it. I love my cast, I am incredibly thankful for a crew that makes all the backstage stuff magically happen, the director is one of the best I've ever worked with, and the music is phenomenal (and very, very stuck in my head). 

This feeling right now? This is why I love theatre. I am utterly exhausted, dripping sweat (I swear, my booth is 90-something degrees), and looking forward to a nightcap and some sleep, because tomorrow? I get to wake up and do it ALL OVER AGAIN. And I can't imagine anything better.

Story
Introduction
For aid of identification, an overview of hobbies and so on:
I knit, crochet, sew, weave, spin, embroider, or do pretty much anything else with yarn or fabric.
I build things from wood or random bits of computers or whatever else strikes my fancy.
I have done silversmithing and glassblowing, though neither recently.
I can't draw worth beans, and I'm at best a passable photographer, but I love to see art in pretty much any form.
I wear Vibram FiveFingers almost exclusively, and love them dearly.
I work in backstage theatre (as you can see below this). My preference is stage managing, but I've done pretty much everything but makeup. 
I have done a very little bit for film with an art department for a webseries, but would love to do more someday. 
I read ravenously, mostly SF/F, but lots of other things thrown in.
I play video games, not as often as I might like, but I would still consider myself a gamer.
I play tabletop games when I find a group.
I do computer IT on the side, and believe in OS-agnosticism. 

If this doesn't help y'all figure out where to put me, then... well, ask me a question. I don't bite, much.
