back pain and upcoming Performance(s)

so, I was already feeling tense and stressed and in pain all the time, and then Saturday while rehearsing for Buffy (and insufficiently warmed up) I pulled or pinched something in my back (left shoulder behind the shoulder blade) so that it hurt horribly. Chuck did a marvelous job working it back to a state of near-relaxation, both at the end of rehearsal and after we went out to see Thank You For Smoking (which was fun). I've been putting a hot compress on it and taking ibuprofen and it seems to be settling down. Both leaning backward and forward hurt, especailly if I turn my head, especially to the left. A trip to the chiropractor tomorrow, I think.

Now it's the run up to Penguicon. Buffy is at 11 pm on Friday. We *think* we have a complete cast, except for a horned demon for the openning scene. This is a *very* easy role. If you're interested, please let me know.

Exciting news of this past week is I was selected to join the cast of the Monkey Rampant Sketch Compedy troupe and I was in fact supposed to perform this wednesday (in one sketch out of about 20). I may still. We'll have to see how my back feels.

Had a nice Easter. Mom and dad came over for brunch with me and Laura and Catherine, and then Mom and dad and I went up to Grandma's for dinner and a nice visit and much viewing of photos from mom and dad's Hawaii/Arizona vacation of a month past. I had lots of sugar, which I've been off for lent, and I now feel pretty woozy, so I'm going off it again...

Also had a nice phone conversation with my mother-in-law, whose birthday it is today. maybe another phone conversation or two to go, and then to bed.
