I do have to dry my hair and make myself presentable, but other than that I’m packed and ready to go to UCSC and opera. Yes. I meant I’m ready for both. While I have time in between, I have to be ready for both, in case I hit traffic and have to go directly to the hall. So I’m in “half black” (pants/shoes) and will bring the rest of the black with me.

A musician may not be late.

Period.

I now see that I have two 15 minute breaks along with the 45 minute lunch. So I’m not working as much as I thought; it’s only 5 hours, 45 minutes of UCSC rather than 6 hours 15 minutes, and then the 3 hour opera, which equals a bit more time as I arrive around 45 minutes before curtain. (Yeah, Mike, I know the stage folk all get there much earlier!) And of course I have to leave home an hour & 15 early to get to UCSC … it’s a 45 minute drive, but I always allow for traffic.

So there we go: easy day.
