The rounds were long, but back-to-back. Which meant, when I had two no-shows in the first round, and one in the second, that I was judging and changing rooms constantly from 8:30 til about 1:30pm. Good thing I scarfed down the quiche. When I got back to the judges lounges, there was still chili left, so I had a nice lunch. Then I got picked to judge in the finals for solo acting.
All of my rounds were a close call on talent; we had a batch of really great kids. In solo acting, all three of us were disappoint to have to DQ our first place pick, based on her being over on time.
I had predicted to Flar that I'd be worthless after the tournament, but I didn't expect to fall asleep as soon as I ate my dinner. I fixed a chili omelet for dinner when I got home around 6:30, then read LJ & email. I was getting a bit sleepy, so I napped in my chair. Apparently, while I was sleeping, Flar joined me in the family room, and read his book to my snores. I woke up around 10:30, and moved to bed to sleep for the night.
On the bright side, I was well rested when my alarm went off this morning. :)
