I promised myself I would blog tonight. It’s going to have to be very quick though! Remember when I worked on this? Well it’s back and it’s bigger than ever. It’s playing Wednesday thu Sunday, 2 shows a night for the whole month of JANUARY. I am back doing the makeup effects for it and it is going to keep me quite busy for the whole month. Check out one of the reviews here.

It’s playing at the Hudson Hotel in Columbus Circle so come and see it!

It seems like I’ve forgotten about this poor old thing huh? Well, I have not and I do not have an excuse for not writing except for the fact that I am ALWAYS so busy.

I’ve been trying real hard to keep up with my training for my HM that is in 2 1/2 weeks, but I’ve been having trouble finding motivation. This weekend will be my last real LONG run before the race, so I better make it a good one. I am going to shoot for 10-12 miles and hopefully it won’t be 900° again like it was this past weekend. I attempted an 11 mile run this past Saturday and it was just not happening. It was impossible to battle the heat!

I’m hoping this weekend will be a lot better!

I’ve been real busy with IRLF lately, but in a good way. There are new interns writing for the site and they are all doing really great!

I’ve also been training at work, I am going to be a full time logger on the night shift. My new hours will be 6pm to 2am. I was a little bummed out at first about the hours, but now I’m over it and I have come up with a list of all the good things that they could possible bring. I honestly think I will be able to write a lot more with these hours. My mind is way more focused and relaxed in the morning than when I get home at night. The only real negative thing that does kind of suck, a lot, is that it messes up my running schedule. My main time frame will be the middle of the day when it will be the hottest and it’s going to be real hard to run in the heat. I’m sure it will all be okay and I will figure something out.

Derek has been working like crazy this past week, I’ve barely seen him at all. Most nights he doesn’t even get home until after 3am! I miss him.

This is my last free weekend for the month because the last two weekends in June I will be traveling back to NH. The weekend of theh 19th we are going to the American Craft Beer Fest. We are going with Kerri and Scott and I absolutely cannot wait! These festivals have kind of turned into a tradition for us, I’m not sure, but this is maybe the 4th year we’ve gone? It’s held in Boston and it is always such a fun time. The weekend after is back to Boston for my second half marathon!

I’ll be back soon I promise.

I leave you with a picture from my favorite restaurant…ever!

So, I know I haven’t blogged in more than a week, but it was nice to have some time off to catch up on everything else. A lot of exciting things have happened over the past few days and it’s been a pretty great week.

I finished working on a play called ‘Green Eyes’ which was an unreleased Tennessee Williams play that was put into production along with several of his other unreleased pieces. The plays were put on by the company Target Margin and they were held at ‘The Bushwick Starr’ in Brooklyn. I’m not sure how many different shows there were, but they were all around 30 minutes each and every show did real well.

I did the makeup effects for my show, which consisted of scratches and bruises on a woman after a night of sexual escapades. ‘Green Eyes’ sold out every single night and it was a huge success. I wasn’t even able to get any tickets for my friends! It was a little disappointing because the show was really good and quite intense. It starred Erin Markey and Matthew Coyle and their chemistry on stage was fantastic. I was proud to be working on this show and I had a great time with everyone involved.

I really don’t have many pictures to share of this. I couldn’t really take any pictures of the show obviously, but this is a cool mobile that was hanging in the hallway outside of the stage.
I finished the play up on Saturday night and then I woke up bright and early on Sunday to help Isabelle out with her headshot makeup. I met her during the play, I showed her how to do some makeup effects and she was kind of like my assistant. She is really cool so I did not mind getting up on Sunday to help her out. I’ve never done headshot makeup before, but it was pretty simple and I had a good time over there. I met some cool people and I had a really great weekend overall .
I also went to Timberland on Sunday evening and purchased some awesome new shoes and clothing. My good Erin works there and she had given us a friends and family coupon worth 55% off our total order so we of course had to make good use of that. I think we saved over $400!!!
This is what I bought:

And I also bought three pairs of smart wool socks of course! They are still buy two get one free so how could I resist! I am determined to turn my whole sock collection into smart wool socks. Let me tell you though, that rain coat protected me amazingly well yesterday in the monsoon that was NYC! I had no umbrella because I left it at someone’s house last week so this is the only thing I had on to keep me dry. Yeah, my legs go wet, but this coat kept my upper half completely dry, it was great timing to purchase this coat.

I have a meeting on Thursday night with Eugenia to discuss the end of my internship and the position of head editor for the IRLF site!!!! I’m really excited 🙂

I am currently blogging through Ecto for the first time, I’ve decided I need a program like this because it makes blogging sooo much easier. I am using the free trial right now but if everything continues to go well then it is definitely worth the investment.

See ya’ll later with my review of Ethiopian food!
