Opening Night!!!!

Well, the day has arrived. Opening night is here!!!
Last night's rehearsal wasn't the best we've had, but by the end of the night, spirits were high and everyone was (is) SUPER excited to get the show in front of an audience. I'm very excited to see how it's going to be received.
Fingers crossed!!!

Needless to say, I'll be sure and let you know how it goes.

In non-RENT news, my training at work has taken a very interesting 'turn'.
As I assumed, my manager is soon going to be the 'owner' of the application we've been learning about. Once the training is finished (ASAP) we'll be in charge of the entire thing, which includes the managing of all the off-shore folks that do all the 'hands-on' work (developers, testers, etc.). None of that was a surprise to me - but what I didn't know was that we were essentially taking the application away from someone who APPARENTLY is not too happy about losing it.
Hooray for conflict!!
She found out yesterday that she was 'losing' the application and from that exact moment she began bombarding us with emails regarding any and all issues that are being sent to her. In other words, she's being a huge baby about the whole thing. Rather than dealing with it like an adult and helping us with the transition, she's doing her best to make our lives as difficult as possible.
Thankfully, I'm not the number one person in charge of the application, so I don't have to deal with the brunt of her idiotic and immature behavior, that's for the V.P.s to deal with. I just have to restrain myself from losing my mind when reading all the idiotic emails she sends.
My boss assured me that things will get better as soon as we take everything over completely, but until then, it seems that we'll just have to grin and bear it.

So, my friends....that's the latest news.
Please send positive thoughts my way around 8pm (EST) tonight!!!


OH - I also heard that there was indeed going to be a promo video shot for YouTube. As soon as I get my hands on it, I'll be sure and post it. :-)
