It was an honor to be nominated...  
...because really, it was.   The women I was nominated with all ROCKED, and the woman that did win played my mother in Steel Magnolias; she actually even looks a little like my mom.  To put it in her words when I hugged her after,

"Oh, Carrie, you just can't top a 20 minute monologue at the end of the show."

Yup.  A truer word was never spoken.  Soooooo...  I ate, drank, had hubs as arm candy, and I did win an award.  The staff of the theatre gives out "SALT" awards...  like jokes; but they're fun, everyone really likes them.  I got one for The Lonesome West (see all of March & April for my bitching and whining about that).  It's a black comedy set in Ireland with A LOT OF SWEARING.  It's a seriously funny script.  I was Asst. Director, and I had to read in lines for the actors that were missing (along with 4,563 other various duties).  There were only four characters in that show, so no one was absent much.  The first time they were I started reading, and had to stop half way through the line the language was so bad.  It had a hard time coming out of my mouth. (It's different when you're home alone and stub your toe, or are really mad - then they just roll right off ;)).  But by the end of the run, I could do it - no problem.  Anyhoo, they were proud that they'd corrupted me; I got the "Pardon my French" SALT award.  It was funny.

Maybe you had to be there.

Or have slammed back had three some  a few cocktails.

Jayme (L) and I were nominated, Cindi (C) won.

I wish the pic was full length.  It's a really pretty dress.

Sweet Jason.  He house & dog sat for us last week.

The girls of playwrighting!  The scribe, El Cyd, and the one who won outstanding student of the year!  Congrats!

The Artistic Director of the theatre wants to set up a meeting for me to teach more classes.  (Heidi's leaving - how 'bout that for an inside scoop Carlee (if you'd ever comment I'd remember your damn username) & alittleredhood ?)  Maybe I'll get theatre 3 & 4 back?  Or better yet, Junior and Senior company?  That would be awesome.  I miss teaching acting.  

So all in all, a good evening.  Not the icing, but definitely the cake.  *wink*

Thanks! It was a great evening.

Hey, you look gorgeous! I am glad you had such a good time, and get to start teaching again! It's so cliched to say it was an honor to be nominated, but it is true. Go you!

Everyone especially you look gorgeous. I saw Steel Magnolias and enjoyed it. There's always next year right?

Nice pics! I'm glad you had a fun time. And I agree, it is an honor to be nominated for awards. :)

Are you freaking serious?

No more Dr. Strickland...er...I mean...Heidi? What's up with that?

I feel like I'm doing some insider trading or something. It's very Martha Stewart.

I'm gonna miss Heidi. (But it's ok because I like you infinitely more.)

Well, Holy Snickies.
I feel as though this may merit a comment from me. You see, I am a closet reader of your LJ (ie I read and do not comment and then giggle excessively at your wit). It happens. Mostly because, like on this very occasion, I go back through and look at all the ones I have missed.

But...Oh.Em.Gee. I can't believe She's leaving. It's looks rather like we have the inability to keep a director for long. I, as well, will miss her. But, yay!!!!! CARRIE WILL TEACH THEATRE AGAIN! YAY! How very exiting the prospect is!

I love yew, Carrie.

Re: Well, Holy Snickies.
You're a big lurking lurker who lurks. It's okay. I do it, too. And I KNEW your username had something to do with clown hair. Hmph.

I don't think she's gone for good; she may still teach classes. I haven't had my meeting with Allen, yet. But still-YAY!
