Insomnia & Delirium

Can't sleep. Can't sleep. Must sing and dance and write. Check e-mail every five minutes. Check other e-mail every ten minutes. What should I do? My mind is racing and I can't focus on one thing. I bought a book today. Once I finish a paragraph I have to go back and read it again because I can't stay focused long enough to retain the information.

I have tried writing several different posts and half way through I forgot what the point was or where I was going. I should have just posted several half finished ideas and waited for someone to react. My guess is that a lovely reader would directly say, What the hell is wrong with you? I would appreciate that.

I need a piano.

Or medication.

They are putting on a production of the musical Hair in Central Park right now. I HAVE to see it. One of my dreams in life is to perform in that show. Nude scene and all. I love everything about it. I have a phone alarm that goes off at the same time every night playing the song "I've Got Life" with Nina Simone singing. Every time Casey hears it he makes up the words. Not to be funny. He really doesn't know them. Anyway we both want to see the show but you can't buy tickets. The tickets are free. You just have to stand in line all day. Who has that kind of time? Turns out they recently created a virtual line. You put your name in like a lottery and then find out by 1pm the day of the show if you got them. I hope, hope, hope I'm in the park watching an amazing show tomorrow night. Cross your fingers for me. Or, do something actually productive. Whatever.

UPDATE: I did not receive free tickets in the lottery so I was pretty bummed but then, low and behold Casey calls and he GOT THEM! I can't wait!!!

I would love to go to Central Park to see "Hair."

I've never seen it on stage, but I've seen the movie a few times. Really great music.

We have something in common. I have an alarm that goes off with the Lawrence Welk Band playing, "Calcutta". Cheers Knight!!

Seeing "Hair" in Central Park is one of those things that some of us only dream of. I *know* you'll be there, and if there was any way I could stand in that virtual line with you to make sure you got there I would!

Wishing you all the luck in the world that you get the tickets...and that you remember that you've got them and that you remember to go! LOL

I'd love to see HAIR @ Central Park! Or you naked. Or you naked in HAIR. :)

Going to do something productive now!

Happy Thursday!

Good luck with getting the tickets! That would be awesome. I love seeing shows in the park. Of course, your Park is very different from my park.

I have some Nina Simone on my iPod. Sinnerman is a great track.

g-man said...

Way cool. We will have to watch it vicariously through you, take notes, bring a camera! ;)


Congrats, have loads of fun!!

Well since I saw the original Broadway production I am here to tell ya I could so see you being a part of the newest production.

And Yay! for the tickets!! Have a great time.

Picture me there - in all my 40 years ago hippie-dippie splendor!

We'll talk about the not sleeping another time - let's just focus on the JOY of seeing Hair!!

GMEyster said...

Ooooh, I love when awesome surprises like that happen - hope you enjoy!

Hope you can sleep soon. That is NEVER fun.

That is so great that Casey got tickets! I am so happy for you.I have never seen it live, but my brother had the album and I know all of the songs. I was too young to be a true hippy though :(

Check other e-mail every ten minutes.

My email program checks mine automatically every five minutes. If one comes it alerts me.

Is Hair a musical? I'm not much into them. I prefer comedy, romantic comedy is better though.

"Hair! I'm going to live forever!"

...oh, wait, that was "Fame" - sorry.

= : - )

Freakazojd said...

SWEET! You're going to post about it, yes? I will definitely check back. :)

I've never seen Hair on stage, but I'm a really big fan of the movie and the music. I even bought the CD once upon a time and then lost it and I don't usually lose stuff like that. I still have the cover and it eats me up everytime I look at it. Maybe I'm slightly obsessive...
