I got some more reading in at Barnes & Noble this morning. I checked out the first book in the Dexter series, which the television series is based on.
After only reading the first chapter, I can tell that those books are soon going into my library.
It was a straightforward three show day. The first show was almost full and the last two shows were packed.
People were still showing up to get tickets 30 minutes into the final performance; I'm not sure whether they got in or were turned away. Tavana told me that around 100 people were turned away last night and told to return today.
Ryan and I switched parts again in the first artist gag. I was not happy with my work though; I am the type of guy that scrutinzes every little thing when I am trying something new in my performance.
When I have something polished the way I like it, I am loathe to try something new; I hate to think that I am not putting out the absolute best work that I could be.
I talked with a couple of circus friends on the phone today, including Brandon Bolden, who just joined Circus Gatti as their ringmaster.
B and I were best friends when we clowned together on Ringling, even though we were polar opposites personality wise.
I'm sad to be saying goodbye to the Barnes & Noble, but I am definitely looking forward to being away from all the dirt and dust on the lot!
