St. Louis so far

my life west of the Mississippi...

Life has been pretty interesting so far. Mostly I've spent my days / nights working at the theatre getting the first show, Thoroughly Modern Millie up and ready. It went into Previews on Friday, and it officially opens on Wednesday. Even with the show in Previews, my work load has dropped off quite a bit, for now.

My first week was pretty bland. When I wasn't working, I did a little exploring to find the necessities... y'know, Grocery Store, Wal-Mart, Post Office, Best Buy, etc. And past the first week, if I wasn't working I was sleeping (or at least trying to). We had work days that ranged any where from 10 hours to 20 hours. I'm still recovering.

I live near a town called Kirkwood, which is only about 40 minutes away from downtown St. Louis. My drive between the really nice 3 bedroom apartment Stages set me up in, and work is really easy. One of my favorite parts of the drive is passing this one Fire Station... it looks like an old cottage out of a fairy tale or something. One of these days I'll stop and take a picture of it. Oh, and there are 7-11's everywhere!

St. Louis has most of the comforts of home, but I haven't had too much down time that doesn't include sleep to really explore past those things I needed sooner rather than later. On one of my days off, I plan on finding a decent Disc Golf course for some outside fun. There's also apparently this place called City Museum that has what can only be described as an adult-sized equivalent of a McDonald's Playland.

Oh! And I almost forgot... I'm now in the land of Anheuser-Busch! I think I'll have to find the plant and take a tour, too. Maybe they'll hand out some free samples!!

Last but not least - I miss all my friends who are starting to become scattered across the globe at an alarming rate. Send me mail (e or otherwise) and definitely come visit when you get a chance!

That's all for now!
