Run Like a Madman and Fake it Till You Make It

I'm a procrastinator by nature, and Tuesday it came back to bite me in the ass. The retoucher told me it would be done on Monday, and of course it wasn't. Tuesday I got the email that it was ready and I could have it emailed to me. Great! by 2pm I still didn't get the image, so I scrambled to Staples for photo paper (which, by the way, has more options than the tampon isle. Glossy, matte, satin, semi-gloss, ugh! I decided on satin finish, and I stand by my choice). I then spent the next few hours figuring out how to print my headshots in high quality. After wasting a few pages of my satin finish, I think I got something usable! I then went to update my resume with all of my recent projects, hit print on those and....what the hell! I only had two pieces of paper. After getting dress rehearsal ready, I ran to Kinko's (an actor's biggest asset) and printed the resumes. I cut everything down and stapled all my paperwork, powerwalked to 43rd and 8th where....

I arrived at my dress rehearsal, headshots in hand. A quick check of the email revealed that I had, just as I arrived, received the retouched headshot. Figures.

Dress went well. Our play was well received. We got a comment wondering how long our rehearsal period was. Now, this remark can go either way. As in, "how long did you rehearse because it looks like crap," or "how long did you rehearse because it looks so well put together." It ended up being the latter! He said the blocking was really tight and we looked well rehearsed. Great work cast. We fooled him! Our blocking was actually way off. Anyway, we open tonight and I'm feeling pretty good. Wish me luck!
