So this first week Of rehearsals has been messing with my sleep, and I think today I just got the hang of it all! Lets us begin at the begging for Julie Andrews tells us "that's a very good place to start."
7:45 My dad comes into my room with a tiny piece of paper and says "call this guy he's got chairs". Now as you may or may not know, I collect metal lawn chairs for the Casablanca. So I call they guy and he says "there's 4 of them and i'll take $10 apiece" and I ask "has anyone else made you an offer?" he says "One lady wants to look at them but no.." I say over the phone" I will buy them, I'll be there in 20 minuets cash in hand, please hold them for me" he says "Ok". My dad and I jump in the truck and away we go to a 'risky' part of town we finally find the guys house and there they are. 4 white "candy bouncer" model lawn chairs on this trailer, I jump out of the truck and this older man walks up to me and says "are you here for the chairs?" and I said "Yes" he says "Sorry I just sold them to that lady" .... I wanted to say...
"WHAT IN THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU?! WHAT PART OF " I WILL BUY THEM, CASH IN HAND" DID YOU MISS?!"
Needless to say I was LIVID. Ya know, normal i'm a real nice person... BUT I just let this guy have it! I told him "How shitty that was to say "ok i'll hold them" and then sell them to someone else" he says "well maybe if you look in my store you can find something.." And I say "NO, AND AS FAR AS YOUR STORE GOES I'M GOING TO TELL ALL MY FRIENDS AT THE HERITAGE SOCIETY NOT TO COME HERE."
And that was strike one....
Strike two came later in the day, I have been trying to sell some of my unwanted filler pieces, (nothing that was in the pictures) among these things is a desk and an "Iron cross lamp". Well a couple comes to look at the desk, and the misses wants to see this cross lamp, and as she reaches to get it off a table she in turn nocks my 2nd favorite chalkware lamp off the table smashing it into pieces "she looks down, looks at the cross lamp and says "I don't want it, sorry" leaves.... UGH ...
But then I went to Jesus Christ Superstar practice, sang danced and got into a better mood! :) I go back to my storage place to see if I cant glue the chalkware lamp back together, and then I notice a fiberglass 50's lamp shade that iv had for a while, that was far to big for any table lamp until now.
Carmen/Betty/Lola got a new shade and I think its rather fitting, unile that stained victorian not period shade it came with!
I really like the fiberglass shade!
I also had time today to think about what projects i'd like to do at the C.H.&R.! As weird as it is I really havent paid all the much care to the front of the 'World Famous' Casablanca Hotel. Since growing things in the front yard is futile I think my plan will be some little details (click on it picture to see better)
Any other ideas? I think im going to hold a 'sign making contest' on here... last summer a feirce rain storm ripped the original "Casablanca Hotel" sign off the roof (where the red square is) and I havent had time to think abotu making another. So myabe you cleaver crafty people could think up a simple font or something we could use?! Give it a shot!
