Opening night

The programThe show opens tonight! Yay!

Actually, I’m not sure what I’m feeling at the moment. A bit of nerves, a bit of relief, a bit of pride, a bit of nerves.

But yay, nonetheless. And yes, tickets are still available for the rest of the run (till Sat 10th Feb), though I think this week’s shows are gonna be quite crowded.

Thank you also to the test-audience at this afternoon’s final run, for laughing your asses off even before Hossan uttered a word. This is probably the first time that manic laughter’s actually had a calming effect. More please!

Thank you!

Re-hearsing

Newater RawIt can be quite thirsty work, rehearsing for a show, even if you’re not the performer. Everything is coming together nicely. Actually, with five days to opening night, they’d better be. Thank goodness for these fizzy vitamin tablets that you put in water that make you look like you’re peeing highlighter ink an hour later.

With low-flying, washed-out colours

Passed!And so, with the dramatic, almost theatrical, gasping dash that lasted half a minute over the last one hundred metres, I passed the 2.4km run segment of the IPPT tonight, at 13:29, a full minute slower than my previous attempt more than two years ago.

But who cares? An ugly pass is still a pass, and I only have a couple more to go before I’m officially retired from all this physical stuff for National Service. Man, I’m old.

Testing time

Heart Rate Cal Right SamllSo I’m taking the IPPT today, whereby if I pass, I will not be required to go to Remedial Training Phase II.

The past few trainings have featured new gadgets the instructors call heart rake mongnitors. And they are for you to mongnitor your own cardio training, whereby you should be training at 80% of your massimun heart rake, whereby it is 220 minus your age.

Hypnotherapninny

Spelling ability not a requirementI’m really not one to speak about all this hypnotherapy hocus pocus and mind control stuff, but I can say that one’s mind can play tricks on one. Especially when one is, for various reasons, like lack of sleep, susceptible to being tricked by oneself.

See, I’ve spent a good minute wondering why, on my script notes for Hossan’s show, I had reminded myself to write Polish Dialogue for Cher and Michael Jackson. Why Polish? Why not German? Where’s the funny? Hossan can speak Polish meh? – Note: Write notes in complete sentences for the avoidance of ambiguity.

OK, I will now go and polish up the script for the Cher and Michael Jackson characters.

Tickets still available from Sistic! Get yours today!
