A series of fortunate events

Today I begin to see the fruits of my rockin' general audition last week: a phone call inviting me to audition for a show at a theatre in the French Quarter that I've wanted to work with since I've moved here.

While at the library today I glanced over the shelf by the door that sells used books, CDs, etc - as I always do before departing. Today the book Eat, Pray, Love - which has been recommended to me countless times and is rumored to have a SIX MONTH waiting list for check out from the library - was sitting on that shelf. I bought it. For a QUARTER.

My search for piano music for auditions led me to this site, which not only yielded some of the music I was looking for, but entire musical scores that I once loaned out and lost... now I have them again! Hooray!

Wow - that's a pretty new book to get for 25 cents!

You're definitely on a roll, buy a lottery ticket quick!

Holy smokes! I would have passed out if I were able to get that book for 25 cents! (I had to pay full price).

Enjoy! :)

Reading Eat, Pray, Love now. It sucks. Don't start if you'll feel obligated to finish.

Rima said...

I love it when the stars align! And I KNEW there was a reason you didn't get that other part - and now you might get the chance to work at the FQ theater! Awesome.

I love finding used books I was actively looking for cheap. I recently (finally!) found the Time Traveller's Wife for £1. :-)

Now I just have to find time to read it.

That's so cool! Hope you stay on a roll.

Can I borrow some of that luck? Please. I'll give it right back. Promise.

It is a great book. And you my dear are apparently meant to read it.
I never find these bargains. You lucky girl...

HEY! send me some of that good luck. I think I'm done with the string of 3 BAD THINGS... argh.

OOH, and tell me what you think of the book...

JCK said...

You have the magic touch for finds for a quarter. I'm reading that book right now.

Congrats on getting an audition for the theater in the French Quarter! Way to go!

Sorry you didn't get the other part, but maybe this is a sign of something else to come.
