It’s over!

It’s the last day of Spring Break (Saturday and Sunday don’t count, they’re not work days). As usual, I had to work during Spring Break, but I asked for a couple of days off in the middle. I mostly lazed, but I got a lot of recording done for my latest LibriVox solo project, The Scarlet Pimpernel. I have one last file left to edit, and then it can be catalogued. I really sped through this one, for some reason. I only started it at the end of February! (literally, the 28th).

I have a couple other projects in progress; Pirates of Penzance, which I’m trying to get finished this month, during March Madness; the other two are MC projects, my first two, since I was made an MC a week or two ago. Nothing too difficult yet, but I haven’t gotten to the cataloguing part yet. I’d meant to ask kayray, my MC if she’d let me catalogue Scarlet Pimpernel, so I could get it figured out, but she started before I could ask. I’m thinking of maybe MC’ing a weekly poetry project as a way of getting my feet wet instead.

We had auditions for Once Upon a Mattress last week, and I got cast as Lady Lucille (one of the ladies-in-waiting) and the Pantomime Queen (I thought I read quite well for the Queen :)). As Lady Lucille I get to hang out with Regan and Beth. So much fun! I think it’s going to be a great cast. I haven’t actually counted, but I’d say I know at least half of the people already from previous shows.

In knitting, I have this particular pattern for a little dress that I’ve been wanting to make since I first saw it over a year ago, but my friends keep having boys! I’d decided that if Meredith turned out to be having a girl, I was going to make it for her, but no, she’s having another little boy! *sigh* So, I gave her the book to look through instead, so she could pick out a pattern. She ended up asking me if she could take it with her over Spring Break, because she couldn’t decide, and she was going to make her mom choose for her! 🙂 So, I’ll find out next week what I’m making for her.

  1. Howdy! Just wanted to say that I’m listening to this right now and you’re wonderful! Cheers!

    We just finished listening to your Scarlet Pimpernel recording. It was fabulous. I don’t suppose we could talk you into recording some of the Scarlet Pimpernel sequels? Either way, we look forward to hearing more of your recordings at Librivox.

    I’m halfway though your recording of Scarlet Pimpernel and wanted to thank you for the excellent reading. Your modulation is very good and the switch in accents is admirable. I look forward to listening to other recordings from you.

    I am listening to your recording and I wanted to tell you how grateful I am … and what a wonderful job you have done. I just bought another book from a site I will not mention and paid $24 for it. I could not listen past the first two chapters. Anyways, I am on chapter 14 and loving it. I only wish Librivox hadn’t revealed the identity of the pimpernel in the introductory summary. Some of us have never read it before. Keep up the good work. Chase.

    I was going to extol your narrative virtues, and while browsing the other comments, I saw that all my superlatives have been used already. You really are an excellent reader. What more can I say? In addition, you appear to have lived a more engaging life in your 30+ years than many of us capture in a lifetime. Are you a Renaissance woman, or simply an incredibly motivated one? Either way, please keep it up; you make the world a much more interesting place, one Karen Savage at a time. Thanks for that and the readings. Geoff Houck
