The awards function is May 5th at the theatre. It's their equivalent of the Academy Awards. I don't think I have a prayer of winning but it is nice to be nominated.

I'd forgotten all about making the costume.
Will we see you on the Red Carpet?

That is SO COOL! Congrats, Katie!

No. I never thought to take any pictures. I suppose the theatre has some somewhere. All I can tell you is that the costume involved lots of knitted gold lame fabric. In fact, when the house lights were out, you could still see the actress on stage. That's how "bright" the costume was.

The running commentary was always, "Where's Shannon?"

"Oh, never mind. I see her!" That was with everything dark.

Worked 12 hours 3rd shift at the old job place, then been up all day with one hour of a nap. Crazy I know.

Oh, I hated days like that. Really messed up my sleep schedule.

I am listening to the news about The Tintanic.

Tomorrow is Marathon Monday. The temps are supposed to be in the low to middle 90's. Not good weather for running 26 miles. They are setting up extra medical stations. There will be a lot of dropouts along the route.

Right now Boston is crazy. There have been activities going on for Patriots Day. It is a Massachusetts and Maine legal holiday. The Red Sox playing, the Bruins playing the playoffs for the Stanley Cup, and tourists galore. I am so glad I am not in town. I can't believe that there are idiots who make it a point to go there to be in the middle of all the craziness. Prices get jacked up. Some places are charging $3.00 and up for a bottle of cold water. The gouging police are out in full force. I remember when I was single and worked in town. I used to be part of that crazy crowd.

I'm not looking forward to the evening news where we will be treated to repeated shots of runners passing out on the course, being carried away on stretchers or laying down in a tent receiving medical treatment because they pushed too hard in the heat.

I hear ya Andy. The Marathon it seems is the only news. The folks who run the Marathon are asking the people who don't run a marathon on a regular basis to pass it up this year. But they won't. They all think they have super human bodies.

Some of the amateurs have been training for months to run the marathon so they can say they did it. Waiting until next year would mean training all over again. They won't want to make that investment.
