I haven’t been around because I am pretty sick. I’m not surprised, everyone around me has been ill lately. I look awesome ‘possum, don’t you think? Not at all like someone that has been giving out $5 blowjobs and using dirty needles in a rat-infested alley, right?
The Messiah closed on Friday.I don’t think I have ever felt so awful during a performance. I woke up really sick in the morning. I’m used to feeling like I’ve been run over by a train, a semi and a couple of tractor trailers in the mornings, but this was “Fever, sinus, sore throat” SICK. I also kept violently sneezing which killed my back.
It was an hour drive to the city we performed in. I am glad that my passengers, Mary Ellen and Rachel survived. As she filled the role of “Diva Dress Fluffer“, I let Mary Ellen share my dressing room. I put off getting into my dress until the last possible second and I spent a lot of my time curled up in on the floor of my dressing room in the fetal position. I had enough painkillers and cold meds to kill a horse and I still felt like major suck. I can’t complain, though. Even though I felt like shit, I managed to look pretty damn good.It wasn’t easy getting the above photo. I have weird friends.
I can’t bitch too much. I blame myself.
I don’t know how I did it, but I managed to sing OK. That was important to me because this is the performance they recorded the DVD they produce annually. I’ll post it when I receive it, but it won’t be for a few months yet.
While it wasn’t as great as last weeks performance I was still happy with it and it was still such an amazing experience. I am so glad I got to do it and am looking forward to next year.
