butterfly girl : where she goes when she

the end of another week...

Saturday's, 5pm. That's my favourite time of the week, because it's when I finish work (well at least - that's when the shop closes. I don't actually finish work for another half an hour or so after that, but that's beside the point. Anything that doesn't involve dealing with customers, in my opinion, doesn't constitute as being work. At least, not the work that I'm used to). Anyway, so 5pm signals the end of the working week for me. Most people get excited on Friday afternoons, because it means their weekend is close. My weekend doesn't start until Saturday night.

Anyway, so it's finally the weekend, and I'm quite happy tonight to just stay at home, and watch tv, and really do.... not very much. It's cold outside, I'm somewhat broke, and I'm tired. But that's not to say that I'm unhappy... because I'm not. I'm content right now.

In less than 2 weeks time, we perform the Opera, "Waltzes from Vienna". 10 days later, we finish with this show. I'm already beginning to wonder what I'll be doing next.

I read in the paper today about auditions for another musical, "Jesus Christ Superstar". Just in the last few weeks, I've been saying that I want to get into more traditional musicals - as opposed to Opera - simply because I sing better when the song doesn't require an Operettic vocal range. So I feel like this is a sign. It's the first time in months that I've looked in the weekend section of the Advertiser, looking for audition notices. The theatre isn't too far from here - it's closer to uni, actually, but it's not like, hours away from where I live. And I know this musical - I have the album at home, actually, which I think I'm going to start listen to.

I'd like to audition, at least just for chorus. I need to ring up and book an audition time. Auditions are next weekend. The timing of this is pretty much perfect... so maybe I should go for it. God knows that after "Waltzes" is over, I'll be looking for something new to sing.
