Praise God....Because that is the only way I got a role over Theatre Goddess Barbie.
I walk up to the theatre doors, where they post the cast lists (that's a little slice of humiliation sometimes, I can tell you that) thinking to my elf, chanting a little mantra, "It doesn't matter, it doesn't matter ,it doesn't matter" Knowing all the while that yes, it bloody well DID matter and that if I thought it didn't that I was a fool.
Yes, all of that went through my head. I have issues. Occupational hazzard.
Anyhow, I got the role of Shelby in Steel Magnolias (that's Julia Robert in the movie for you non-theatrical folks) and I've gotta say, I'm more than a little excited.
First read through is Sunday.
Life would be perfect if I didn't have a stinker of a sunburn on the back of my legs from the pool yesterday.. Awwww, poor Carrie, life is tough.
Life is fabulous, and you know that it is....
