Not much to update other than I’m under a rock called rehearsal and production!
Everything But the Cat… is coming along nicely and soon enough I will be in rehearsal for The Parliamentarians in May.
What do I do to unwind from all the scheduling and memorization rehearsals? This: archery. I have been a few times this year and both times have been cold! But really I can’t get enough.
Hungarian Horsemans Bow: anchor at the chest, not the eye.
Here’s a video of me trying a Hungarian Horsemans bow:
notice that it anchors to your chest and not your eye! That messed me up so much! But it’s really interesting to feel the different approach to mounted archery – it’s true, anchoring to your face/eye (Hunger Games style) makes for a very bouncy shot once on the horse. If you anchor to your chest it is much easier. I can’t wait to try this on a horse!
Today I hit the archery range with my friend Adam and hit a 9! A 9! That means I was THIS close to making bullseye. And I broke an arrow for the first time… eep! See:
Opps broke an arrow for the first time!
I have to live up to my Merida claims – keep working on my Scottish accent, get on a horse whenever I can, and get to the range:
I also brought my 6ft nylon whip and gave it a crack or two – my arms were happy campers after a few hours changing between the two 😉
I am beyond excited to play dress up for
Toons on Tap on June 4th at The Rhino as MERIDA!

I hope to see you there! I will have my hair extensions, my “brother bears” and of course my bow and arrows 🙂
You can also hire me out to be your – I would love to be the invited guest of a little ones birthday party! Brave friend
Here’s a trailer to get you in the spirit – as I will try to use my very underused Scottish accent: http://www.imdb.com/video/imdb/vi678863641/
And finally, here’s me at the range recently: *note the near bullseye!
