Ow.

Went to a fight practice for a game with daogre and others.
At that fight practice, I was forced to learn a country dance - a Virginia Reel, specifically. I like dancing just fine, but this kind was sort of dorky, and especially because there were substantially more lads than lasses. And then... I absolutely tore out my planar tendon. I felt a warm "POP!" sensation under my left foot, like I had just stepped on body-temperature bubble wrap. After that, searing agony.

Getting to the car - pain. To dinner? Pain. Parking at CVS to get some athletic tape to wrap myself, because I have a dance audition for Aida tomorrow? Pain.

And then, to top it off, a guy backed into me in his pickup truck in the parking lot CVS. No big deal, but he's uninsured, so if there's any hidden damage, I'm fuXX0r3d.

Walking from where I parked back home was the longest four blocks in recent memory. I stepped a little wrong coming up the steps, and it hurt so much I actually shouted, and tears sprang to my eyes. I have a pretty high pain tolerance. I mean, I fell off a mountain without complaining once. But this hurt.

Lovely day.

Very badly. Got a few bars sung - told to stop. Said a few lines of "Crispin Crispian's Day" and got cut off. "Thank you."

Nothing further. Pretty dismal.

These are the same people you worked with on Pimpernel and Thumbelina, aren't they?

The optimistic view is that they already know you and your range pretty well, so they don't *need* to see your monologue or hear you sing. I wouldn't write it off until you know for sure that you didn't get cast.

Nope, different director. The musical director knows me, but the director has never seen me before.
