A big day of theatre today. Two plays before lunch!
The first I was invited along as a reviewer and was a really a real treat, the second was an interesting bag … THEY WERE OUT TO OFFEND … and they did. I felt like my Grandma at a Slipknot concert.
I’ve been seeing a whole bunch of ex-RSVPers knocking around the place! And I’ve seen a lot of their shows! It’s great to see so many out doing what they love! REPRESENT
This lifestyle is hard to maintain. I feel tired all the time and my mind is fit to burst with the amount I’m trying to cram in it. NOT TO MENTION THE BOOZE. It’s like a constant party and a constant lecture all mixed into one. Especially when you have agreed to review. I see about two shows a day that I write about; drunk or not, I am awake at 2:00 every morning at my laptop. This blog is the closest thing I get to down time here.
The show went really well again and afterwards I went to see an absolutely stonking play involving singing taxidermy. WHAT A HOOT.
I was on my way home when I bumped into the charming Oli Forsyth who quickly sat me down and put a pint in my hand. Before too long, the tequila came out and I was going off on one about ex-girlfriends … SMOOTH MOVE BAKER, SMOOTH MOVE

I couldn’t leave my room. I ordered a Papa John’s the second it turned midday and sat in there like a fragile husk of a man; like shed skin. UURRGGHH
Part hungover, part exhausted, I tried to write but couldn’t so watched cartoons instead. IM SO GROWN UP.
I finally came to my senses, took a couple of multivitamins and went to see a friend’s show. The acting was incredible and the play was very touching. I DONE A CRY (but this might have been the result of how sorry I was feeling for myself as much as the play itself)
I was sloppy in the show tonight and I lacked focus. Feeling guilty, I tucked myself away for the rest of the night to finally finish my reviews and lay off the sauce. I hope I feel better tomorrow…
