well, now i can’t say that i’ve never run out of gas before…

a couple of days ago, on my way to altoona for the dracula dress rehearsal, the empty gas tank light came on. i stopped at a gas station in port matilda, about 15 minutes away from state college, only to realize that i didn’t have my purse with me or any money. i was pretty pissed because i was running tight timewise already, and going back home would add another 30 minutes to my 50 minute trip. but there was nothing i could do, so i went back. and even though i should have been good for another 20 miles or so, i ran out of gas on the expressway, about 3 or 4 miles from home. on one of the coldest days of the year. luckily, my dad was able to bail me out, without first going the wrong way. i guess my answer of “a sign 2 miles penn state state college woodycrest hampton south go to sheetz” to “where are you?” didn’t help much. i didn’t cry, though…i think i was too shocked to cry. but we got some gas in, it started, and i took off with my parents’ car. i was really expecting to get pulled over for speeding, since i was flying down the highway trying to make up time, and i didn’t have any id on me. or, since i was driving my parents’ car, i figured i might hit a deer, while gong 90 miles an hour. luckily nothing else happened carwise. and, i even made it to the theatre before they started! but, because i was dilly dallying, i missed the entrance of my first scene…it was so embarrassing.

so, not the worst night of my life, but definitely in the top 10. but hey, at least i was in state college and not in the middle of nowhere, i had my phone and my dad wasn’t on the internet, tying up the phone (yes, we have DIAL UP at my house).

anyway, it’s opening night tonight! gotta go!
