highs and lows


I thought I would share some highlights with you guys...
  • Drew is still here.  We're tooling around this beautiful town in a convertible--need I say more?  
  • Today was bagel Sunday.  I LOVE bagel Sunday.  See, what happens is our magnanimous stage manager, Ray, buys the cast and crew bagels and cream cheese every Sunday.  This means I don't have to get up any earlier than need be to hunt down some food before a 1 o'clock matinee.  Or it means that I can save a bagel for lunch/dinner between shows.  Sometimes it can even mean both.  Also, Ray gets the good stuff--none of that grocery store crap (no offense to any grocery stores that read this blog).  He gets us bagels from places like Bruegger's and Einstein's; places that only do bagels and so have gotten it down to a science. I love bagel Sunday.
  • Between shows today, me, Drew, Clyde, and Derek had some delicious barbecue at what is, I guess, a famous restaurant here.  I had corn on the cob which I could eat everyday, all day, if it's made right. And it was made right at this place.  Clyde and Derek are both very cool guys; combined with the coolness of me and Drew, you can imagine how cool the lunch was. 
  • I completed another five-show weekend which means that a day-off is in order.  This also means that I do not have to wear heels tomorrow.  My feet are very angry at me, so maybe they will not be so mad tomorrow.   Here's hoping. 
And now for the lowlights...
  • Drew is still here.  HA! Just kidding--this is not a lowlight; I wish he was here all the time!!!!
  •  I just might be growing a mullet.  Since I have gotten this short haircut, I have learned that I need it cut every 4 weeks, but last time I went to a stylist, he decided to just leave the back a little longer.  He said it looked very bad***.  Well, since he was the one with the asymmetrical hair (a la Christian from Project Runway), plus the styling know-how, I figured I would leave it up to him.  However, a few weeks later...well, it is looking suspiciously similar to a mullet.  Oh, well--I am due for another haircut the beginning of next month.  
  • Drew and I went to a birthday gathering for my friend Clifton at a bar after the show.  We ordered some much-anticipated lobster, crab, and artichoke dip that came with pita bread and chips.  There was a man in a wheelchair who parked himself right in front of where we were eating--and proceeded to try to manipulate us into giving him our food.  It worked (he was in a wheel chair!). He told me he had never had pita before--while looking longingly at mine.  I gave him some. When I was downstairs, he asked Drew for a chip; when Drew gave him one, he scooped as much of the dip that can possibly fit on a chip and shoved it into his mouth.  Drew and I concluded that he ate about 50% of our chips and dip.  
  • And lastly, this occured:

Miss me much this summer, Drew?!?!?!

It's NOT what it looks like . . . I was just trying to kiss a dude. That's all.

Peaj said...

Um... that's kind of exactly what it looks like.

You guys have got odd things on your heads that I can't identify? What?

Jason Latshaw said...

I'm glad you've had such a great time! Why did you highlight Bruegger's in yellow the way you did?

And Drew... what's up with that plastic thing in your ear?

Jason Latshaw said...

I'm a little confused about the story of the man in the wheelchair... was he homeless? What kind of man just asks people for their food while they are in the restaurant, and what kind of restaurant lets them!?

Jessica Latshaw said...

Drew and the other guy in the pic (Jonathan) are both wearing microphones.

I don't actually know why bruegger's is highlighted-it was unintentional.

The guy in the wheelchair...well, he was sort of a groupie, I guess. He had seen 5 of our performances--since wednesday--and had hung out with some members of our cast. Because of this, Cliff had invited him to his bday party. Last night was the first time I had met him, though I had heard about him from others. He told me that he had fallen in love with us on stage--and then that we had become like family off stage. He said that he felt a specifically close connection to John and Kevin (it was hilarious watching John answer him when he said that...).

He also told me that he was loved all of our shows--except the saturday matinee. Why? Because WE had no energy, he said. He was like, maybe you guys were tired, and I was like, yeah, maybe.

Anyway, he had cornered me, John, and Drew (this is when he started the manipulation tactic with the chips) and John jumped ship saying he had to go to the bathroom--so I followed suit, leaving him with Drew...By the end of the evening, the guy had given Drew his number and told us that we could stay with him next time we were in San Diego. He actually said that, since we had honey mooned here and if we wanted to take a 2nd honeymoon, we could just stay in his one bdrm aptmt with him...

Does that make it any clearer to you--and sorry for the uber long comment!

BIZARRO!! (the guy in the wheelchair, not Drew...no, wait...Drew, too)! ;-)

Jason Latshaw said...

Sounds to me like Cliff owes you half a lobster crab dip appetizer!!!

Note: For future reference, you shouldn't hang out with psychos. One second, you're missing half of your dip. The next, you're missing half of your cast.

Jason Latshaw said...

And if the guy can afford to watch ACL 6 times he can afford to buy his own dip, and even treat you!

Jessica Latshaw said...

I know-it was a very strange situation, which is why, when John said he was going home, we immediately offered to give him a ride and accompanied him out the door!

Wise move, Jess!
