Block 223: October 5, 2013

Date: October 5, 2013

Crane: 223

Days Spent on Project: 230

Location: Apartment, Washington Heights, NYC

Person I would have sent it to: Chris P.

Chris was brought on one year to assist (although the correct NHSI term is “associate with”) Andrew W. on all of his work as the Production Manager/Director of the program.

He would become invaluable, in a way, as Andrew was starting to be torn in many different directions.

He has still continued working towards a solid career in production design and management; according to Facebook, he’s work as a Production Director at the Goodman and at Chicago Shakespeare. Both pretty amazing jobs.

And, if I’m lead to believe Facebook, he also has a French Bulldog. A blonde one; my dog and his clearly need to meet.

Music I listened to while sewing: Today, I rotated between the following McQueen runway shows… La Dame Bleue (check out those silhouettes!) and The Girl Who Lived In The Tree (check out how deep that RED is!).

Thoughts/Feelings behind the block: So, you know how sometimes your body can find ways of telling you to stop what you’re doing and slow down.

After 7 hours of costume fittings, 7.5. hours of Amtrak travel to and from Providence, and one break for a large coffee, I got back to Washington Heights on the slowest subway imaginable and picked up a very hyperactive dog from the boarder’s place. I walked home and promptly collapsed.

I’m sick. What started out earlier this week as an ever-present headache turned into a sore throat yesterday morning and then went into full-on headache and sweats and then somehow managed to make all my skin feel tender and achy.

Thank the Lord it’s Saturday and I don’t have anything I have to do. I cancelled my plans to meet a friend for coffee. Now that I’ve finished today’s Crane, I’m going back to bed.

I’ve got a half gallon of orange juice, and I’m not afraid to drink it all and buy more.

Now if only there were some good matzoh ball soup in this neighborhood…

Here’s to hoping things are better tomorrow.
