What a day!

Wowsers! When my alarm clock went off at 6:00 am on an "off" day, I was not a happy camper. After some serious pep talks with myself, I got up, made a moisturizing treatment for my hair and showered/shaved.

I'd been at a Chocolate City Burlesque and Cabaret planning meeting until around 11:00 last night and answered emails and Facebook messages throughout the night. I was exhausted, but excited. Today was the first day we'd have the overwhelming majority of the CCBC Presents: Black Friday! Performers in one room. Our group photos and studio shots were this afternoon.

Pulling this together was amazing, it was a last minute shoot. We decided to do it on Tuesday. I'm not sure how we got everyone to agree to be there, but I think it is a testament to how excited we all are about the production and the statement we're making.
