No sooner than it starts, it’s all over!
The shows on Saturday went fabulously, and although the crowds were modest in the afternoon, they were both very receptive, and we absolutely performed our best. I was so proud of us (and the others.)
Afterwards was a huge (and I mean HUGE) party at Charlie’s Ale House in Andersonville (Yay, just stumbles from home!) and a chance to celebrate our wonderful show. Indeed, we should all be proud of what we are bringing to Montreal this year. It will be a very good showing.
Today I am attending my first-ever gay wedding. In fact, I am singing a song and performing with the Slickers. The wedding is for the board chair of Windy City Performing Arts. I’m excited because I get to sing, of course, (where I will get the voice to do it I have no idea) but also because I’ve always wanted to witness an affair such as this. Of course it is not a government-sanctioned WEDDING, as those are not truly legal in Illinois (yet), but just the fact that these two people have decided to commit to each other for the rest of their lives and do so in front of friends, family and the like is so wonderful and so moving to me that I could not say no. Of course this begs the question, what on earth do I wear!?!?
Well it’s not happening for a while, and I’m only awake because the cats wanted food. I will sleep on it further and see what comes to me.
