The Scythian will be spending her winter break getting some structural body work done .
those 38 weeks flew by, ..closing day was cool weather . I felt amazing strong and thin . We had been packing and putting a lot of stuff in the pick up and cookhouse had been bumming me out . I was into making pancakes for Fresia, Marshall and anyone who deserved them . I guess I was on the pancake diet . Wow I am a blithering idiot.. Back to closing day , Marshall sounded so great . All the trumpet parts he wrote himself.. he was unamplified but played sweeet and loud ! how nice.. just like the good old days. I am doing trapeze and get to have a look behind me and see/hear him blowing his horn. Fresia was so jazzed about closing day. Mostly she was expecting to have some big emotion. We talked about " how she felt " , she said she didn't feel happy or sad., just strange that she couldn't do " it " tomorrow..I think she was proud , she only missed part of 1 show, when she got whacked in the eyes with a scarf . Marshall , Mike drummer, clown Ryan and Raul were the only people that did not miss a show .
I am so loving every show . When it is not showtime you realize that performing is like watching sand sift between your fingers..all of a sudden there is no more
hot chocolate and pancakes and hot tea and electric heaters and sweaters and layers and long sleeves..we have packed up our flippy floppies.
My pumps are on borrowed time..I have newer ones but they are not so comfy..I can really move in these babies . Yesterday my heel got stuck in the mud AND it wasn't the first time either !! When I was filling in for someone on this very show in '09 or '10, my heel got stuck in the mud..Both times my heel was rescued by Johhny Moss .These pumps have been rolled over and cracked into pieces by some heavy bear props, they have been rebuilt twice.. I am always looking for good pumps.I make my entrance into the circus ring in these pumps, yesterday without a heel was pretty entertaining for those involved..it was kind of cool because it keep me laughing and I didn't thing about the cool air I was performing in..
