Two Days and Counting

The Victor Continental show goes up in exactly two days, and things are running at their usual pace...in other words, I'm about to shoot myself. Actually, that's not entirely true. I'm about to shoot Auman, and flee to Mexico.
Spent all day yesterday running around on my day off, gathering props, costumes, and the like. Have noticed that people tend to look at you very strangely if you ask for a refridgerator box and a chain saw at the same time.
Almost all the sketches are written, with the exception of Shitty Deal have been written...now they just have to be memorized, costumed, and performed. No sweat, eh?
For those keeping the tally, I want this noted for the record--

For this show, I have--

--collaborated, written, copied, and organized the scripts
--tried to keep rehearsals running smoothly, and relatively on time
--typed, re-typed, copied, and then revised the bit order
--gathered the majority of the costumes and props
--been to the Salvation Army at least three times
--spent way too much time at Kinkos
--and made sure the song was finished, and the tapes of the songs distributed (sorry, hily)

Auman has
--been to Kinko's twice
--put up some posters
--called the Journal World

Now, if Auman can come through with some last minute fund raising activities, I think we'll be about even. Otherwise, I win the game. I don't care how many times that fucker goes to ACTF.
