07:36 pm - Like elephants we is
I am sitting at audition callbacks last night, and it's been a nice evening and I have been handling myself with the utmost social grace and ease as befits a show's director. I have been conducting with aplomb one-on-one interviews of total strangers and have been especially good at not saying anything stupid, because I often default to stupid when I open my mouth for a non-breathing reason.

After the interviews are over, I am in the main room sitting around with folks and I turn to an actress who has worked with us before and I say that I'm glad to see her auditioning for the show and such.

And she says she's happy to be there and all.

Then I say that I heard she had been doing voice work for The Mask of Inanna, the PMRP's new podcast series, and she says yes, she has. I mention that I got to voice a part in one of the episodes-within-an-episode and recorded it with the crew on Saturday and that it was a lot of fun.

And she says yes, she knows, she was in the booth too.

It is very difficult to accomplish something this advanced, but I've had years of practice.

Have you read the John Varley s-f novel The Golden Globe? If not, you really, really should.

I have done this, only involving a court proceeding while talking to the lawyer who had represented one of the parties and been there for the same hearing I was at.

Mumble something about Einstein, implying that you are a distracted genius and then humbly say that you are so happy that she remembered little old you and then back away slowly.
