I need to lose 25 lbs in 10 days– any ideas?
Yeah, I find myself stressing about my upcoming LA trip, mainly because I’m not thin enough for California. Technically I’m not pretty enough either, but I can always wear a ski mask.
Not this coming weekend, but the following one, I’m heading to LA to sing with the gay men’s chorus out there. They are performing “I am Harvey Milk” and I will be lending my voice for it.
Because it’s L.A., you can be sure that everything will be tarted up “Hollywood style”. It’s taking place in the Disney Concert Hall. They have an Oscar winning producer “producing” it. The guy who wrote the piece is singing the role of Harvey. Full orchestra, natch. And they want a 500 voice choir, so everyone who had performed the work was invited to sing.
I’m going mainly because I think it will be a spectacle. And I do love a good spectacle!
Plus it helps that I do like the piece quite a bit.
However I am concerned that I’m too heavy for Hollywood. I don’t want them saying, “Oh, I guess they took a chance on the smart, fat girl….” Or “Um yeah. We’re going to need you to stand in the back– behind the risers.”
Or worse. What if they have shaming weigh-ins for the chorus members before rehearsals– like a southern sorority?!?
I know I’m over exaggerating, but I really am a bit worried that I’ll be ignored because I’m not pretty or built enough. This event has the potential for making friends in other choirs from around the country. It would suck if I’m not good enough for the Cali-gays.
Well, perhaps if I don’t eat anything. And when I feel like I’m going to pass out, I eat a cube of cheese…..
