Update on Stuff

  I know I said I was going to post on my "diet" (in parentheses because it's not technically a diet, per se) and I haven't. I said I was going to post daily for the first two weeks, and then weekly for however long I feel like it. I'm sorry, but that's way too much work. I posted one day, and I was about to finish Day 2, but I didn't have time. Let's face it, I have a life. I really don't want to take the time to write everything I eat and write all the calories down and my qualitative feelings and crap on this blog for three or four people to read. I can't do it. But I will tell you it is going really well. I've been eating a lot of veggies, and drinking only water and tea. I don't typically drink soda, and I gave up coffee because it's too acidic for my voice. As a singer/actor, I need to take care of my instrument.

  It's sad and a bunch of crap. I really want to see a study that specifically shows any long-run damages to the throat done from drinking coffee every day. But I digress...

  So, I've been eating a lot of veggies and fruit, and I've been letting myself indulge in something sweet or junkie every so often. I am never as ravenous as I used to get because of all the fiber and stuff. I don't feel full after I eat, nor am I sluggish. The only thing I need to work on is bringing food with me when I go to work or somewhere for a long period of time. I had auditions for "The Music Man" Sunday. I ate at 12, got to the audition at 2, and didn't get home till 9 (I would have gotten home sooner, but had to pick up a prescription, which involved calling my insurance company to override them not covering it at retail level and other crap. I'm going off on a parenthetical tangent...). I stopped at Jason's Deli and got a huge sandwich because I was starving. If I had just brought food to munch on during the audition, I would not have spent $7 on that sandwich. Just sayin'...

  Oh, and today I think I realized how little I really need sweets. I ate a chocolate creme doughnut that I'd been craving for about two months now. I never thought I would see the day when doughnuts would become too sweet for me. It's bittersweet, really.

  I'll be doing myself and my body a favor though...

  In other news, I kicked ass at "The Music Man" auditions. It's about freakin' time I had a productive audition. Normally I don't consider myself a good dancer, in the event that I have a disappoiting audition and people know not to get their hopes up. But I did really well at the dance audition. Like, REALLY well. I was one of four people in our group that was asked to stay so they could see what else we are capable of. And my singing audition was phenomenal as well. I don't really like to toot my own horn, but I haven't had a good audition like this in months, so I think a good self horn-tooting is in order. I got a callback, and I go back tomorrow. I really wanna be cast as Marion the librarian. It would be a change from all the whorish characters I've played in the last two years or so. Even if I don't get the role, being in the chorus will be fun, too. I will get to play a bunch of different characters and dance! I haven't done that since my sophomore year when our high school did a production of "Anything Goes." Either way, I'm in a win-win situation :)
