Day 4: Thanks, Idiot!

After only three days of rehearsing, we had our first day off to spend Thanksgiving with family and friends.  I had high hopes of going to parade this year, but instead, I rested my sore body and ate mashed potatoes for breakfast!   Then a little Turkey Time with the Loh's, Fung's and Cheng's (Yup, Chinese Thanksgiving) of Greater New York.

 "I Don't Feel Any Shame, I Won't Apologize"

Today, I felt like a million bucks, which leads me to be sincerely nervous about next week when we don't have a  mid-week recoup day.   This show is not for the feint of heart!  It was a Lorin and Johanna day and they kicked our asses royally.  Looking around-  everyone is loving the abuse!  :-)

Ou! We added our guitarist and drummer to rehearsal.  Our opening number is STAGED!  What?!  It sounds flippin' amazing to have these guys here and I'm looking forward to sharing the stage with these awesome musicians.

And now what you all must be dying to know-  What am I THANKFUL for w/ American Idiot?

-Gaby's Brittany Spears Impression
-Ability to cancel my gym membership
-Jarran's Pecan Pie that he "made"
-My body not crumbling beneath me
-Tom Kitt.  Period.  End of Story.
