Yesterday we had a little meeting on how much space we get in the show determined by last weeks hanging crit.
On one hand Foz said he dreaded this time of year because people tend to get paranoid and start reading into things too much (for example if someone gets more space in the show and someone else gets less.)
Unfortunately when he was later backed into an uncomfortable corner by an angry and overly emotional student he said quite frankly
“Well you’ve only got 2 meters instead of 3 because I don’t think you have enough work to put in the show”
So…..what shall I say? I feel paranoid already
Onnalin and Georgina accuse me of taking pleasure in other peoples misery.
I find this unfair in the extreme (partially true but still unfair). I do not consider getting stroppy about having 2 meters of space in the show as opposed to 3, reasonable grounds for ‘misery’.
Cancer is misery or perhaps losing someone you love (like a dog) but amateur dramatic were designed to be mocked. Of course this includes me missing my flight and burning down the kitchen. I was highly melodramatic at the time but in retrospect it was hugely funny, therefore logically I do not see why others should be spared.
I reminded Gerogina and Onnalin that many crits ago we (especially us 3+ Foz) all sort of made someone cry. Georgina looked absolutely aghast with horror,
“We made her cry?? No no! What are you saying??!! No I didn’t oh my god!!”
Now that was funny.
