Wednesday Matinees… joy!

Nothing really exciting to talk about with work, I was just pretty tired by the time I was done with it. I biked in this morning, and it was extremely humid and the air quality was nasty. Because of this, I decided to take my time on the way in. It was definitely a good idea, I was still sweaty and exhausted by the time I got there and I wasn’t pushing on the trip at all. Bad air is so tiring. The trip home wasn’t quite as warm, but just as humid I think.

By the way, if anyone is looking for a Toronto job, the Theatre is hiring ushers left right and centre. People keep leaving for other jobs, and to move to Vancouver, and that sort of thing. It’s been strangely better lately, the environment there.

Adam and I were talking, and we decided that I’m going to leave the theatre a week earlier than I was planning on. This is good for me, partly because I suddenly only have 3 weeks of work left (woohoo!) and because this way I’ll have time to organize the packing and moving and might get to see people that may not be able to make the August 8th Open Stage Farewell Party at the Renaissance Cafe. (no, I’m not promoting, not at all!!)

I was getting a bit tired of the Toronto LJ community again (seems to happen when I’m reading it for a while,) so I dropped it from my reading list. It’s not like I’m a Toronto person anymore in my heart anyhow. I’ve been reading the Vancouver community for a couple of months now, and I have yet to see any of the weirdness that happens in the Toronto one.

It’s amazing to think about, that I’ve got less than three weeks of working at the Theatre to go…

It occurred to me today that I’m leaving Toronto, and Toronto is the first place I’ve felt right calling home. I’ll be leaving my first real home, the city where I grew into myself and became who I am. I love it here, but I don’t feel wrong or sad about leaving, really… it’s time to go.

      Sure…

      The Royal Alexandra Theatre
      260 King St. West
      Toronto, ON
      416-872-1212 (not sure what extension… see below)

      The House Manager is Elizabeth Morales. She doesn’t know I’m leaving yet, she’ll find out on Sunday when I give my two weeks notice. The best bet is to actually walk in there with a Resume, rather than phoning. Ask at the box office (or if it’s during a show, ask an Usher) to speak with Elizabeth Morales (or just ask for the house manager, they’ll tell you whether or not she’s in.)
