Yes He Did

November 5, 2008

Did anyone else cry during that speech?

I mean, I didn’t, no no NO – but, you know – I was just wondering if maybe any of you wusses had tears falling into your glass of wine.

Also, I just have to share – we were rehearsing hard all evening, checking Tim’s laptop every chance we got (Tim is a genius!) as we slipped on and off stage, and we began to see some sketchy news that maybe Obama had won.  Then we ran through the opening number one more time, and afterwards J the director said to Susan the stage manager, “Susan, do you want to tell them what you told me?”

“McCain conceded,” she said.

“WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!” I screamed at the top of my lungs, pumping my fists in the air – while the rest of the cast…. remained silent.

Turns out Susan needs to speak up more – but also, apparently a lot of my fellow cast members do not know what the word “concede” means.  Yikes!  Let’s get going on that education-reform, President-Elect Obama.  (Sniffle, sniffle) – What? I have allergies…geez.

P.S. – I really did not like Michelle Obama’s dress.  Love the woman, but that dress looked like it had been spray-painted by a PETA protester.

    yes, I cried – & I’m not ashamed to admit it. this is big-time stuff, people! Less than 200 years ago, most black people were SLAVES!!! And even though I can’t believe it has taken THIS LONG for a black person to be elected, on the other hand, in the grand scheme of things, it hasn’t been that long to travel sooooooo far.

    the dress? doesn’t matter to me. After all, she’s not out there to make a fashion statement. Smart people don’t need to dress up to make a point, but that’s just my opinion.
