Good morning! I am still smiling from last night's good time. I headed out early to get to this valet driving job test only to find that the guy sent me on the wrong day. I'm a bit irritated because it was set for 10 am and the "Wicked" ensemble auditions start at 10:30am. Good thing I went early because I still have time to make it to sign up for the audition.
I actually got here at 10! I got to the table and signed up as #36 on the non Equity list. The line of Equity ladies is long. It looks like I'll be turning in my Headshot and leaving again but I decided to wait and see. This is too good to miss even the slightest chance of being seen. As I'm sitting here the monitor calls for none Equity to turn in headshots and resumes. So I'm thinking, here it goes again. But I'm noticing that after they turn it in, no one is leaving. So I asked the monitor "what happens after we turn in the stuff" and she says " after they finish the ones on the list the go through the headshots and pull in the ones they want to see". Can you imagine the feeling of stupid that just washed over Me?! I mean, I walked out of What, like 3 auditions after turning in my information thinking they would call if they wanted me. HA! Mind you, I not dressed yet so I rush to the bathroom to change into my dress and realize that my makeup is back at the room. Tsk Tsk Tsk. Guess I'll gloss up! No foundation or eyeshadow on me and these girls are powder pretty. Oh well. As Elphaba says "It's meeeeeeee! So if you care to find me, look to the western sky"! LOL Wish me luck!
No go. After they finished with Equity they kinda did a lottery with us none members and I didn't get picked. No need to waste the rest of the day right? I called Gerald and told him what happened and he suggested I go ride Staton Island Ferry and hit up the Native American museum. I just happened to be right near the M42 bus he told me to ride! I get off at the docks and I see boats and one huge Navy carrier! And wouldn't you know it, I'm at the wrong place. lol These are touring ferries. Smh so after snapping a few pics I decided to go back to my room. My battery was low on my phone and I left my charger in the room. Plus, I am feeling run down and tired. Especially after eating that hotdogs. BTW I got a letter from the Dr saying I'm border lined diabetic. I got no good news today.
I was got back to the shelter to charge my phone and rest because I was feeling physically bad. One of the directors asked if I wanted to go see a baseball game si I said sure, if I can get into my room and take a nap. She let me in, and I slept for about 2 hours. Got up to shower and get ready. Because it wasn't time for the doors to be unlocked, I rigged it to only close by stuffing something into the hole and went to wash up. I tried to be discreet about it. I got out of the shower and walked to my door and it was shut tight. I looked at the security guard and remembered she always watches me. She must have closed in when I was in the shower to be spiteful. I guess she thought it would be funny to have me stuck outside the room in only a towel. Smh. I always have a contingency plan. She was sitting beside the floor model tv to the right of the shower room so when she saw me coming back that way she says "oh, your room is locked"? Yep, I replied. And she she got up to go get
the key to open it I walked to the dryer next to the showers and got a full set of clothes to put on. When she came back into the bay she was shocked to see me fully dressed. The look on her face proved what I already knew. She did it to me on purpose. Fool of a girl.
Dinner was served right before the van was to leave for the game at 6pm. It was pushing it but I ate light and went to catch it. It want ready till 6:20 and the game starts at 7:30. I found out it was a minor league game. I didn't care though. I just wanted something new to see and do. As we boarded I noticed that the 4 other women that said they were going hadn't showed up. When the guy in the wheelchair rolled up and wanted a seat, I gave him mine because. I was shotgun in the front. The driver asked why I didn't want to go anymore and I said "look around, I refuse to be the only woman with these guys. They are creepy. They give me the creeps inside the building and I refuse to be alone with them". It took him a second to catch on and then he was like, yeah, good idea. DUH! I haven't spoken much on it but they watch me. I wear my headphones all the time to block unwanted conversation, even though I do not always have them on. Some pass my in the hall and nod or say nothing but others make comments about me like "sexy sweet thang"or whistle. Old men are gross. Drunk men are worse. I always keep a brisk pace and look straight ahead when I walk the halls. I never let my guard down. And with that, I'm off to my room to watch my new favorite Korean drama, "Su Baek Hyang, The Kings Daughter ".
