*Being told a day before that I'm helping Stage Manage with the British Academy of International Arts LAMDA Ceremony. Quite easy... when I knew what was happening!!
But it was lovely to see all the people I have worked with this year getting such fantastic exam results with special and well deserved commendations.
Lizzy, Yousef and Emily reprising their roles in the Railway Children.
*Karaoke the next night with the BAIA Kids - sang horribly - but apparently not horribly enough. Alison still wants me to sing in Les Miserables 0.o!!!
Hamad and I - obviously not singing!
*Getting Star Trek the Next Generation DVD box set.
*I helped organise a surprise bridal shower for this lovely lass! It turned out well =)
*I managed to not get my Noshad taxi driver in trouble for an expired licence (it takes months here to renew it, and he is leaving on holiday this month - trust me not worth the hassle) by scaring a police officer at a check point... I cheerfully offered him cake... he look mortified and apologised to me!
Finally, my HUZZAH moment! After much struggling, learning a lot of stuff (except fucking slip stitch - you impossible stitch!) and many wounds - making me look like I'm an junky injecting through my hands!
I finished Raggedy Anne!
Next for Raggedy Andy.
Now what a great week... but still I have some Not So Noice-ities - so here are my NERKS for the week:
*I got a haircut for the LAMDA ceremony (because I had to wear a pretty dress!) the cut was nice (when I unpoofed it!) but the colour was meant to be DARK RED - no matter how many people like it - i'm not impressed.
*My main taxi man Ali - who has kept me and Tris safe on the crazy roads in Kuwait was fined a huge amount of money because his path met with a cranky police officer. He has been asked to stop at a Bacalar (little shop) so his passenger could pick up a recharge card. The police man couldn't pass - so instead of asking him to move - he took Ali's papers and fined him the equivalent to $220 Australian dollars for an maximum $8 taxi ride. Good on you Mr Police Man! (FYI - why I feel so good for my victory against police this week!)
*I have been helping manually edit reports for The Sunshine Kindergarten. This has been hours of work. This would have been avoided if a certain designer did some handover - GRRR!
*The Star Trek boxset which we brought for 250US on the Amazon Market place is a very good fake.
We thought something was wrong when an episode froze. Then when an episode of NCIS and not TNG started playing, we thought - 'shit'. Then I looked and realised there were labels on the CD - they were not printed on. I wouldn't mind too much - but it is a lot of money - and if you are going to do a copy... DO IT RIGHT!
We will see what the seller does before lynching them...
