in full bloom

Opening Night was a blast! A sold-out performance and a standing ovation at the end! And I sang in Mandarin! How much more can anyone ask for?

Thank you for all the well-wishes. I certainly enjoyed the show and nearly broke my leg too! There were 2 photographers, and their bags, who blocked one of our exits. Actors, including me, running in and out and they refused to move. So, I tripped over their bags as I was making one of my quick exits and fell to my knees. I had just enough time to get up before 10 actors came rushing behind me. Can you imagine if they tripped over me? That was, for lack of a better word, a trip!

Tonight is the Gala performance. For me, it means Opening Night No.2. Last night had a few very minor hiccups. However, the way it ran last night, we should be in full bloom tonight. Again, I'm so excited and practically pissing in my g-string!

What are you doing wearing a guitar string? If you pee on it, it will rust!

Glad you had fun, even if you almost got ran over after tripping. Audience exits are sometimes interesting.

Oh... BTW... OUTSTANDING FREAKING PHOTO! WOW. I LOVE the tonality in the flower, then the dark shadows with just a little detail in the leaves.
