I’ve always loved that character from Moulin Rouge. I think the funniest thing is in the beginning when he keeps falling asleep during rehearsal. 🙂 Little things like that really make a character memorable.
I’m feeling particularly narcoleptic today. I’ve been fighting sleep for the past 8 hours, hoping to stay up long enough so that I get to bed early (if that makes any sense at all). Except, I’m fighting a losing battle. Even as I type, I’m yawning and rubbing my watery eyes.
I’m not complaining, mind you! I’m thrilled. Because, I have even more good news. You know how yesterday I was thrilled about having hit 20k?! Well, just last night I wrote another 3k! PROGRESS! *does happy dance* I was up wayyyy later than should be allowed for me, especially cause I get silly if I don’t get enough sleep. But I managed to pull it together for work. In fact, I had a really great day. (Sidenote: Melissa if you’re reading this *waves hello!!*).
But you know, you pay for those dream nights with miserably long days. Ha ha. Is it awful that I’m wishing a nap might bring the muse back for round two? I can take her, you know. I’m not afraid of her madness. I AM however, afraid I won’t wake up in the morning. I have an 8am curtain call. The last thing I need is to look like death warmed over. It’s not particularly appealing to customers. Plus… we just got points for being ‘well groomed’ (whatever that means). I don’t want to disappoint. 😉
I’ve gotten into the nasty habit of wearing hardly any makeup when I’m really tired. Which is a BAD habit ,by the way. I mean, if I’m really tired, wouldn’t you think I need MORE makeup? To hide the hideous dark circles? Note to self: eyeliner is your friend.
My tummy just rumbled so I believe I will go have one of those yummy cheesecake pudding cup things I like so much. I will leave you with this. My favorite scene from Moulin Rouge. Where the Argentinian plays a more intense role. *Oh come on, anyone who knows me at all knows that I enjoy humor like the next person, but I’m a goner for the melodramatic. Give me angst anyday.*
