I spent the weekend first frolicing (totally don't know how to spell that word) around the Loop, dressed in all white and a light blue cape...waving a kite around and doing performance arty type stuff for some Cirque du Soleil promotional stuff. Let me tell you, putting a clown nose on someone is INSTANT happy. Srsly. There was this older guy sort of leaning against a wall, didn't look too happy to be alive...he was the first nose I gave out. I went up to him and just placed it in his hand. He got the biggest smile on his face. It was the best day ever. I couldn't feel my feet after walking around for 8 hours, and my hair was a frizzy mess from the couple of rain showers that happened (one of which I hopped up on a bench and did slow motion dancing to)...but it was awesome.
Then yesterday was the mayor's "Kite Day", and so I handed out noses and flew kites with thousands of Chicagoland children and their parents. Except for the freezing ass weather, it was also the best day ever.
Today, both knees are bothering me, and I'm *so* over it. I'm so fucking TIRED of my body not working right. I couldn't run around yesterday, I couldn't climb on things downtown...it was really frustrating. You know that feeling when you're in a really hot room and you start to feel all GetmeoutofthisroomARGmySKINisCRAWLINGandI'MFREAKINGOUTAH-AH-AHLETMEOUTNOWWWWWWWWWWW ? That feeling...that's how I feel about my body still not being back to normal.
Just rehearsal today, so that's nice.
