    While I'm having fun with my own medical oddities right now, I didn't get the spinal tap that I was sent to the ER to possibly get. Getting to keep my spinal fluid in my spine is always a good day.
    I also know I don't have Lyme's or West Nile. So hopefully this virus is just a mysterious mystery that clears itself the fuck up soon.

    Yikes @glukkake and I thought getting to remain shoeless for a whole day was setting the bar a bit low for a good day. Please get well soon!

    long day of days. Brain is a bit fried and its really kind of nice. Picked up my demo from the producer and my initial take is that I love it. I'm waiting on word from a few pros but my mom loves it! Hah. I didn't realize how good it would feel to hear that. But it really is. She's helped me so damn much, through college, through this career shift, etc, etc. And that's even though she's not really sure what to make of my love of theatre. She hasn't seen me on stage since high school (maybe earlier, I don't even remember) but largely because I never put my work where she could see it. But now I have something that I could share and so I played the demo for it and she thought it was great. Heh. that's what a theatre degree, almost a dozen years of work and more debt than I want to think about can do!

    and then I had a new improv class this evening and...RAH! The awesomeness is wiping me out. Hah. Good shit.

    Phase 1: COMPLETE

    I'm now in on running a booking agency. Bands, weird circus folk, anything interesting. Onward to phase 2, which is where things start getting insane. Do wish Lucky Productions luck, if you can spare some...

    Meanwhile I'm sending vile hugs to all y'all with ailments, mysterious or otherwise, because that crap is just unacceptable.

    Have started Skateboarding again for the nth time. I'd forgotten how good it feels.

    Over halfway done with today's shift, then begins the vacation. Which is awesome, because night before last the bedbugs returned. Had to stop a meltdown from he girlfriend. She hasn't been handling these bugs very well. Can't say I blame her, they're disgusting. They pretty much leave her alone, but she has to watch them eat me alive. Last few weeks they've been pretty much gone, but eggs must have hatched, because they're back with a vengeance. Thankfully, we're leaving very early tomorrow, and the landlord has exterminators coming while we're away. Fingers crossed that we'll have seen the last of them.

    On happier news, we'll be staying at an awesome log cabin out west of San Antonio, in Hill Country. I'm taking my girlfriend and my daughter hiking in Lost Maples, swimming and caving at Garner State Park, bat watching at Devil's Sinkhole, and horseback riding at some cowboy ranch. It's beautiful country, and I'm with my two favorite girls.

    On the way back, I think we'll hang out a little in Austin. I'm thinking I must expose the girlfriend to Ruby's BBQ on Guadalupe.

    Went to a birthday party and the birthday girl gave me a bottle of wine! Hahahah... Well the party was a good time at a new nightspot in LA - Villain's Tavern, style-y (and a little pricey) and I guess scary warehouse-district-makes-a-great-zombie-hangout-after-dark neighborhoods are the new hip thing for hot bars because the area was sketchy like whoa and by 10pm the bar had a line around the block.

    Brilliant friends are brilliant. That is all. }:>

    I swung by Goodwill this morning to donate a couple of bags of my husband's clothes. This particular center happened to have used books with a section of comics! I picked up the first 12 issues of Nextwave for $4! It made my day.

    And...on Friday I won 2 nights at an ashram in northern california in a raffle at my yoga center. This is lovely because I haven't been able to get out of town all Summer.

    I went to go see Attack the Block and then found a copy of The Thing on blu-ray at FutureShop.

    Attack the Block was really good! Also, I am writing again.

    So my photo set seems to be gaining some popularity and I'm getting many pleasant sounds in regards to a whole series of related photos (in the post). So I'll be asking DC for permission to use the names (to explain to people who killed the victims if it doesn't appear too obvious) and if I get that, I'll most likely start a kickstarter for it so I can afford things like props, makeup, locations, models etc. I'm glad that a vision in my head came to life and people dig it.

    And I just got informed that I'll have some social media work coming my way, someone will contact me regarding an album cover AND I applied for the retail area of one of Toronto's most famous brewpubs. Part of my duties will require giving brewery tours. Eee!

    And tonight...baked potato for dinner, a bottle of AUDACIOUS BITCH and an episode of Star Trek: TNG.

    Bliss.

    Hello all,

    Last night a few friends and I saw Jello Biafra live.

    He was amazing. So much better than I could have imagined.

    Despite having a new album he performed Holiday in Cambodia, California Uber Alles and Police Truck.

    Police Truck.......Could not have been happier.

    He is in his 50's and he was stage diving.

    Glasgow loves Jello.

    Startlingly good day even though it never quite went the way it was supposed to and I kinda sorta never got out of my PJs (shh that's our little secret). Sent my demo to a friend who's in radio and he gave me a generally positive review. Out of the blue got an ok from a voice pro I follow on Twitter to send him my demo for critique. His only major comment was to tighten it up (of course, he doesn't know me & doesn't have much of a metric to judge my performance, but as a friend said at least it means I didn't make any amateur mistakes). Hell, it was awesome that he made the time to listen and write back. Fuck I love voice people!! Routinely patient and supportive.

    Touched base with a couple teachers and...even submitted for a cheapie voice job I found. doubt I'll hear from the voice job again but now I know I can just plug away.

    Been a proactive day like very few I have ever had. And I'm getting slight palpitations as a reward. Well, so far, this kind of stress is alright.
