I had a blast tonight. I think about ten people performed, spoken word and music, and it was so much fun. I’m incredibly happy that people came out to say goodbye and party with me. Carmen told me that I have more spirit than anyone he’s ever known working at the Alex. He was a bit drnk at the time, but it still made me all teary-eyed. I’m just glad I didn’t start crying.
I took many many photos, all of which will go into the photo album that Chanel from work gave me. Unless I run out of space, in which case I’ll have to find something else.
Yeah, I’m a little bit rambly. I drank a lot of cherry beers tonight. at one point, Cyn had me basically chugging as part of her set. I got a bit wobbly after that, but had some water and was okay.
It was so weird looking around the room and thinking to myself from time to time that some of the people I saw there tonight I’ll never actually see again. Sure, a bunch of them I will, but there are some that I won’t, and there’s no way I can predict any of it. It’s just kind of crazy. I tried not to think about it too much, it sort of made me feel strange if I did.
At any rate, today was my last shift at the Royal Alexandra Theatre, and my last open stage in Toronto, and probably my last drunken binge of joyousness for a long time. Now it’s time to pack up and head north, and go canoeing, and move to the west coast. So crazy. I can’t even fathom it right now.
On that note, I’m going to finish this post, post my results for a meme in the next entry (killing time, you know) and go to bed with my gatorade.
