Things I Need…

March 5, 2011 3 Comments

WishListThis past week I’ve realized there’s a few things I need to add to my wish list. Aside from the usual… more time, more costumes, more money (to buy more costumes!) and a personal assistant… I have two very specific requests to put out there.

#1 A gig bag that is truly and fantastically functional.  It should roll like a carry-on suitcase but open up with two sides so I can pack all the parts for 2 separate costumes, each on their own side. That way, I can put show#1 costume away without burying show #2 costume underneath and inevitably making a mess of all my careful packing at home. While I’m at it, it should have lots of pockets for my jewelry items, makeup, hairspray and comb, dance shoes, business cards, etc.  Since I’m shooting for the moon here, I’d like a way to strap a sword or cane bag to the outside so I can maneuver just one item.

#2 I need something like a whiteboard in my shower. Why? Because that’s where I get all my best ideas! Something about standing under the water washes all the mundane crap from my mind and makes room for the creative muse to wander in. She runs away when the water goes off so I have to write things down right away – my ideas usually come 3 or 4 at a time. That still wouldn’t solve the problem of the great ideas that I get in the gym shower.

Are you listening, Santa? You’ve got 9 months to work on it!

What do you wish for? Tell me in the comments below..

    You know bath tub crayons for kids might work for the ideas you get in the shower. They’re like soap & you can write on the shower walls with them, but can then wash it off the walls once you get out & write them down on paper. Just an idea. 🙂

      Ha ha – I guess I’m not the only one that gets good ideas in the shower 😉
