Cattle Calls

So today were the cattle call auditions for the spring shows, Airswimming and Harvey.
My monologue went very successfully and I got good feedback from both directors. The callback lists go up tomorrow so I'm excited about that.
As for other shows I'll be busy as a bee for the next two weeks. Lend Me A Tenor goes into tech in a couple of weeks and Bug is in it's blocking stages this week. Not only do I have to juggle two understudy roles, but I have to make sure all my assignments are done on time. Either way, I'll probably go crazy to the max by the end of the week.
Oh, and Lady GaGa came to Portland today to speak on the "Don't Ask Don't Tell" debate. They're threatening to disallow homosexual men and women in the military. Obviously this is ridiculously discriminatory, so GaGa, herself came to give a speech. Unfortunately I was otherwise occupied and couldn't see her give her speech, but I'm glad she stands for such great things.

Oh, and P.S.
Birthday count: 9 days!!

Um, not to inform you about this, but they've never allowed gays in the US military. "Don't ask, don't tell" was a Clinton era policy, meaning the military won't ask you specifically if you're gay, as long as you hide it too. If they do find out they will discharge you immediately. What's going on is that people are trying to repeal it, making that homosexuals can be in the military, regardless of their sexuality. But this change has been spoken out by some people, so Lady Gaga (always one for the gay rights)has been very vocal, urging people to call their representatives and make their voice heard.
