Our last big shows in the main theatre were last night. Fortunately they went well, especially the last one, so we felt we went out on a high note. Next week we’ll be doing a handful of improv shows for the charter cruise, so I guess we’re sort of weaning ourselves from our cruise routine.
It’s been great having Colin back; not just because he’s a lot of fun to be around, but also because it’s back how it was when we first started here 4 months ago. Coming full circle and all of that.
Tuesday I got back from some Sonic work in New York, and Paul, Sue, and Kevin picked me up at the airport in a rental car (they had rented it to do some other stuff in Orlando that day). We had plenty of time before we had to be back on the ship, so we played some mini golf and made a stop at the mall. Yesterday in Miami we all went over to South Beach for some lunch and a walk around. Today we’re at the private island, and I think we’re all planning to go over at some point. It’s been a while since we’ve all done stuff together as a full group (other than eating), so it’s been nice. Last night after the show we sat around Star Bar and took turns asking questions about the ship and our time here that we all had to answer, like “Where’s one place on the ship that you’ve still never been?” or “What’s the most embarassing thing that’s happened to you since you’ve been here?” I’ve never been to the crew gym, and my most embarassing moment was when a new crew member complimented me on my beautiful voice, confusing me for the woman who sang in the opening night show that week, and I decided to just take the compliment. Later that week I saw her again and it was clear from the look on her face that she realized her mistake. She came up to apologize, but then I had to explain that I knew she thought I was someone else, but that somehow I had decided it was easier to just smile and nod.
