Opening night

The 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

It 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

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.
