Yes, still can't sleep. This schedule must stop.
I was feeling tired around 10:30pm today (after doing NOTHING, and I mean NOTHING besides things on the computer between 11am-3pm...while lying snuggly in my bed), and thought to myself- why am I tired at 10:30pm? That's LAME- I should at least stay up until 12 seeing as how the only thing I've done is practice today.
I mean, sure that was productive.
I got the finale and the quartet finally memorized so now everything for next-show is ready.
Oh yea, and I updated my website with the two sweeeet reviews that the show got.
So. In conclusion- I practiced, did more things on the websssies, walked outside for about 30 minutes before a torrential downpour began, went to dinner with a guild member and schmoozed (with an amazing cream of mushroom soup and a grilled chicken with pecan and chevre salad ...((heaven)) for dinner), and then came back to the apt. for more online-ing.
There is SO much to read when I don't stop myself from just the leading articles in the Times and Spiegel and BBC. ARRGHH.. and that is why it's 2:23 and I'm still awake.
With a show tomorrow/today/in about 17 hours.
I think because the weather has changed back and forth from cold to 80 degrees to torrential rains and humid to really cold again, my allergies are going a bit crazy.
I've never had allergy problems before (I think). Each time I feel like I'm about to get sick it's that scratchy throat feeling and then a dry cough which turns into some crazy bronchial thing and I know I can NOT get to that third stage by downing Emergen-C, ricola, not singing, staying in bed, and taking very careful care of myself for 2 days.
But this is different. I wake up feeling like I've been run over by a truck. Or a moose. Or something large and painful. My eyes are red, my throat is tight, and sure, I can start singing right there and then, but the lingering headache doesn't really get better that way either.
So I think it's allergies because my eyes are also red. Or lack of sleep???? But I DO sleep a lot, it's just at horribly weird hours.
Too bad! I'm not going to take anything. I hate every medicine except for the tiny red sugar coated advils and chewable Flinstone's vitamins (of which I prefer getting a grape flavoured Barney over those nasty orange ones, but I think there's a conspiracy to package more of the yucky orange ones in the bottle).
The voice was fine today when I went to practice. I shall be fine today/tomorrow for the show and the rest of the run. I'll just continue to down water and Naked green machine juices (SO GOOD!), and all shall be once again good.
