Well, that went not at all as planned. Apologies to all involved for screwing up the drive-in plans; poor communication and unfortunate circumstances ruled the day. Damn cell phones for not getting calls, damn stupid drivers who rubberneck and bottle up traffic, and damn me for not being more clear with direction. As it turned out, Harrison fared no better and wasn't able to round up people for his crew either... so the whole thing fizzled out.
I salvaged my evening by going to the Price Chopper and picking up some dessert items for Ren and Justin's pot-luck-drink-the-rest-of-the-wine-dammit dinner. Got to hang with friends, drown my sorry lightweight ass in boozy goodness, and later hook up with the people I disappointed who would have attended the drive-in trip. I fully intend to reschedule a drive-in trip... and next time there will be much better preparation, having learned from the mistakes that were made.
Also - please recall that this coming Monday night is MASSIVE-SUSHI-NIGHT. I know a bunch of people would like to attend all you can eat at Zipango this coming week... look to Noah and send him your name; we'll need a head count so we can call ahead and let Wilson know we're going to inundate him.
And so, today, though overcast and cold, will be a brighter day. I'll be heading out to Jen and Aaron's for a barbecue shortly, and we're going to go see Shakespeare on the common tonight (Henry V). Should be much fun, I don't get to see Jen and Aaron nearly enough!
In other news - I have been cast in a musical! "Return to the Forbidden Planet", a retelling of "The Tempest" in the setting of a 50's sci fi movie. I am most excited about this. I haven't done theatre in some time, and I'm really psyched that I've made the decision to get involved with it again. I'm even a main character, and get to perform a song with Steve Dupree's little sister (yes, Stan-who-just-got-married-Stan). Tom Russell has been cast in one of the two male leads... it's going to be an amazing production with the talent pool we've got. Keep the weekend of October 3-5 open - I'm not sure where we'll be performing yet, but it's an MW Rep show so it'll be somewhere on the WPI campus!
Apparently a lot of people tried out, and I got picked over a bunch of other folks... I really want to do well now. And I know I can, so I really can't wait to show my stuff. :)
