Is anyone going to Tall Tales next week? My friends have bailed so I’m going on my own. Would be cool to see some friendly tumblr facesI’ll be there! Also meeting up with Zendarenn (who i just met 2 weeks ago at the JFSP recording) and some of her friends. Do come and say hello/ sit with us if you like. I’ve got dark brown curly collar-length hair and I’ll be sporting the usual bright orange satchel, so you can’t miss me.
I’ll be totally over dressed in a bright dress of some description (I’ll be coming straight from my office job) New friends from Finnemore gigs are the best :D
Went to see tonight’s JFSP tryout and it was brilliant.
Full cast attended tonight and Carrie saw me as she sat down and mouthed Hi to me! I was taken aback by that.
The sketches were amazing. Also got to see them performing the “Stoppable, the Tram Story” sketch which was amazing to watch the actual performance because of their faces and actual actions.
There was three, count them THREE animal sketches :D my fav new one of the night was probably the most high-brow and I don’t want to say any more because spoilers and you need to hear it so you appreciate the joke.
The mini wine bottle got the now usual response and the “Well, since you asked me for” was the hard-boiled detective one, which is one of my favourites. (Who am I kidding, all his sketches are my favourites). Highlights of that included John hitting Margaret on the head with his script when she said “knock it off”. Also when he giggled mid story and then commented on how tough his giggle was was.
He also asked us not to take his photo tonight as he would become a “human fountain” and the little red lights look like aliens watching them.
Spoke to Carrie and Simon after. Simon saw me and while still signing someone else’ thing kind of yelled “What have you made” at me, them apologised. He said that when he said I should nix the whole doll for him idea (https://twitter.com/slepkane/status/487418121784156160?lang=en) that didn’t mean he wanted me to not make it. I still need to make it and show him, he just won’t accept it as a gift until he has a place that isn’t his house to keep it in. Which is reasonable to me. I just have the idea in my head and I’m a bit afraid.
Carrie also said Patsy has successfully creeped out several of her friends! We both see this as a win.
Said a quick hi to John, accidentally made him think I was complaining that the show tonight contained sketches I’ve heard lots (because I endlessly listen to the episodes on my ipod) and then tried to explain that no I love hearing them again, especially when I can see them performed. Maybe shouldn’t have said that I’ve now seen him 8 times since March, whoops.
Can’t wait for the 1st.
