Boxes. Parcels. Packages.

Do those words incite the same kind of excitement in you as they do me?

And no, I am not talking Christmas here. Not yet, anyway.

But it's on parr with that, I'd say--the greatest of holidays.

It's time to go home.

To box up my stuff, tape it up tight, and mark it with my name and address.

To send it back to where it belongs and more importantly, where I belong.

And just looking at all this stuff makes me so happy.
Actually, I was rushing to finish boxing up my trunk during the Paul and Cassie scenes tonight. So there I was in my leotard and fishnets, knee deep in packaging supplies. And after getting all my stuff into five boxes, I was faced with the monumental task of carrying them to the company manager office, all the way on the other side of the theater. And then there was the added hassle of my rib and how I am not really supposed to be lifting much.

But that's when I got creative.

And found a dolly.

And so I rolled my boxes from one side of the theater to the next, making more than a few people laugh at me along the way.

I just love it when a plan comes together.

And if you know who said that, you get 5 points to be used at your discretion.

5 whole probably useless points, people. Now THINK.

My favorite part of this isn't that you did it during the show, or that you traded out your character shoes for Crocs (because honestly that's just smart). It's the fact that in the middle of all this, you stopped and found someone to take a picture of you with your boxes and the dolly.
Yay for going home!
