I hope it goes well for you Bob.

My audition went well last night. I'm quietly confident but you can never be sure.

I had an audition for a role in an amateur production of Alan Aykbourn's "Role Play" yesterday evening deldaisy. As I said above I think it went well. I'll know if i got the part in the next couple of days.

Hang in there with the heat wave. I hope that your air conditioning system pulls you through.

Spent many an hour in the Sportshall doing Exams so i've symapthy for you. In my first year they hadn't Semesterised the main exams yet so all exams where in May / June and i had to go trough 3.5 hour exams. That year the History department had 4 hour ones . Thankfully they changed in my second year and the time is much more manageable :D
Good luck with em :D

Bob, hope the exam goes well. Oberon, break a leg!

Tomorrow I will be doing my most hated chore - paying bills.

Tomorrow evening I have to persuade the rest of the committee of one of the Am-Dram groups I work with to let me direct "Maskerade" in November. It won't be easy. Some will say we won't be able to cast it (we are only a small society and like many similar groups consist mostly of middle aged women). I will argue that I managed to cast "Wyrd Sisters" a few years ago. You can always find actors for a Pratchett.

I do have some leverage. The group want me to write a one Act murder mystery for them for production in June and I help to run their junior drama group. I've also sounded out some of the committee already and I think I have enough support to swing it.
