From Last Import

I dressed a famous person tonight.
Went well no big deal. HOWEVER. Here is: Lesson #2 from an idiot.

When you have to dress people and it involves bending over and working on their shoes. DO NOT wear your jeans that show a little too much butt crack. When you are dressing someone famous, onstage, at a dress rehearsal, in front of an audience, with television cameras and a JUMBOTRON DEFINITELY DO NOT wear jeans that show too much crack. AND if you do - DO NOT BEND OVER NO MATTER WHAT.

Yes I think I gave a LARGE supersized plumber butt to several thousand people tonight.
Your welcome.

The blue - the stage I was standing on. The screen below the rings - the jumbotron my ass was on.

Working on closing. Costume wise there are more - we did have some done before opening but we only have a week left. Long days again. The volunteers who were so great for pushing out the big numbers of stuff have all but dropped off. we used to get around 20 a day, not we are lucky to get 10.
I went to see STARS last night though. I love them.
Taking a slow morning into work so I can deal with my car insurance at 10:00. I'm sure the pups will enjoy their little walk.
Whew I have nothing exciting to say.
To tired.

Oh yah - diet still going amazingly well. I am now so incredibly sick of the sandwiches I am hardly eating at all. HA. So healthy. I know. But hey I'm fitting into clothes I haven't worn in 2 years. I'm sure I have enough fat stored on my body that I could stop eating for a month and not waste away. When I am allowed to bring my own food in again and have a chance to buy groceries I'm sure some of it will come back.... Wish I could market this diet though. I'd make millions. How to lose 20 pounds in one month.

So there you have it. I must say it has been fun - good people, even with the crappy pay. NOW I can tell everyone what I was doing. Mostly the costumes with the lights in them. Just figuring out how to hide the wires and such, how to stitch the lights in and then I'd pass them off to the electricians. There was ALOT of those lights....
But we all touched every area of the show, placard bearers to audience leaders to the torch bearer outfits I was doing this afternoon. And yes I saw Wayne Gretzky again.
I get a day off tomorrow. Think I will mostly rest. I need to get over this cold I've had along with everyone else.... It's going but it is still around...
Hope everyone enjoyed the show...
I LOVED the whales. I could watch the whales for hours every night. So magical when the surface turned to water.......

Ya I saw Wayne Gretzky tonight. 2 feet away from me. And the two Australians I was with didn't know who he was. Not even a little bit.
I'm not the only sick one. We all seem to be getting the same cold. My boss aka'best friend' lost her voice today too. We are all smuggling in bottles of cough syrup. Such a sexy group.
Two more sleeps to go.

have today off because of my Capilano University duties....
I went to 4 fittings and then I slept. And slept and slept and slept. I just ate but now I might go back to sleep. I am still fighting my cold and lost my voice last night. It isn't completely gone but it didn't come back this morning....

Our first dress with an audience was last night - apparently it went well. Everyone is talking about how much they liked it. The didn't even do all the cool stuff last night. We even saw some of the headline talent. More and more are arriving everyday.......

I feel guilty being at home but I also know I need to get well.

My diet is going well. We can't bring food into the stadium and I'm there 14 hours a day and all they feed us is the same sandwiches everyday. Needless to say I AM SICK OF THE SANDWICHES.... down 15 pounds since christmas and I haven't even really thought about it.... Probably also accounts for why I am sick...

Ok. I've been up for an hour now probably time to go back to bed....

still alive.


Getting sick. Everyone is getting run done.

A few of us are doing 14+ hours.

Tomorrow is our 3rd dress rehearsal - the first full one. It will be a long night. So much left to do. YOu don't understand the pressure of a dress rehearsal with 1000+ costumes until you have been in one. There is only maybe 8 of us doing full time sewing. That makes us each responsible for over 100 costumes. That is alot. Imagine 100 pant hems. ALOT... And of course it isn't just pant hems.... That would be easy.....

Going to have a hot bath and start sleeping for tomorrow

Got my haircut and new udies to help me feel a little bit better about the next week of H E L L
