    @Sellmeyoursoul: The only vacation that includes strangers feeling up your cock and balls should be the secret long weekend in Ibiza.

    @Anchorbeard: Yee gods, that's a long drive! I think the reason the flights are so expensive is because they're international. I don't know if it would work, but perhaps if you could figure out a way to fly to a city near the border (like Buffalo and Rochester) and then somehow magically have a car to drive over, it might be cheaper? That's just crazy ideas I'm throwing out, mind. Though I gotta say, damn, Oldhat is lucky. I'm totally having a woobie moment. D'aawwww.

    As for me, I'm looking at an apartment tomorrow, and if it sucks, I'm going to make phone calls to people that my mom has found out about. Apparently they don't put ads in the paper here, you just have to be in the know.

    @trini, yeah...I'm a pretty lucky gal. :)

    Tonight I decided to walk in the freezing rain for three hours and spend one hour in a record shop. In the end I bought two vinyls; a Long John Baldry album and Zola Jesus' Conatus. BOTH are amazing. And the Zola Jesus album came with a digital download, so hooray!

    I got my steam copy of LA Noire working by downloading MS NET for another game, and by the gods it worked.

    47 years old.Legs wrecked from the needle.Mental skills deteriorating.Can hardly spell.Ventricle going to lung enlarged from methadone and smoking crack.Chronic hep c.Manic bouts of depression.Suffering from valium withdrawals.Still detoxing from opiates.

    I could go on and on.

    Yet for some perverse reason i'm happy to be alive at this exact moment in time.It's a fooking miracle.

    This hard northern bastard is hugging the nice warm teat of Whitechapel and is pumping it's leg for relief.

    Niiiceee !!!

    Japanese presentation on samurai clothing & gear went pretty well. Comments from lots of students including a girl who told me mine was a presentation that was of the quality she expected from everyone and almost didn't get. Prepared, organized, clear in my points, and projected my voice. That feels good. No idea how good my Japanese was, though. }:>

    And with just a couple of books from the public library. Take that PowerPoint!

    @ razrangel: Excellent.I love it when a plan comes together from a minimum of source material or whatever.It reminds me of when i used to be a drama teacher and just blagged my way through it by using what i'd been taught in wanky mime workshops,a few books and a lot of passion.

    Proud and happy for you.Keep it up.Hug.

    @Rachael - Woot! Like an early birthday present from the gub'mint, if birthday presents are what you were owed a while ago.

    Two cool things:

    Cool thing 1 - improv teacher encouraged us to invite a friend to watch tonight's class, the last one of this year/series. I convinced my friend to come along for it. He worked his schedule over so he could and I drove him to and from. So a good four hours of hanging out with him, including time at the class where I goofed off onstage and he watched and was entertained.

    Cool thing 2 - Late in the summer I started reading Ann Bogart's A Director Prepares. It's a book of essays on theatre by a prominent individual in experimental/expressive theatre. From just a couple pages into it I was loving practically every thing she had to say. But I lost track of the book somewhere in October - my life was so mad I didn't even notice until I had absolutely no idea where it was the last time I had seen it. I had spent October helping a lot of people move house and finally had to concede that it could have disappeared into the ether in an awful lot of places. such a bummer to lose a book that was setting my creative mind on fire. I even dreamed of finding it and being overjoyed. Bummed again to wake up and still not have it.

    Then today I was gassing up my truck when I happened to look into the gap between the cab and the bed and spied what looked like a book stuck between a kind of a rubber sheet and the bottom of the cab. It was actually trapped there and it took a couple of minutes of wedging my hand in under the cab and working it loose to get it out. YAY I have my Director Prepares back!!! Worse for the wear - it would have been out in the rain more than once - but still readable! Kill the fatted calf, my book that I once thought was lost has been returned to me!

    My Bubonic Ebolapox is starting to relax its iron grip. Still ravaged by plague and toxic snot, but not quite so bad.

    @ Rachael: Excellent.I was concerned about you last night so that's something good.It's $ you well deserve so enjoy.

    I did a drop in my detox this morning and i am ok.If i come over crazier than usual on this site over the next whatever then it will be due to a toxic overload of noradrenaline overstimulating my rancid brain and central nervous system.

    I like a pain you can chew on.Perverted yet good for a laugh.

    That's me.

    Met up with my old nemesis the scale this morning, and discovered that after going to a gym at 5 in the morning three times a week, for six months......I LOST TEN POUNDS!!!

    @Rachel. Yay!

    @ Mostly Harmless:Now that's some impressive shit,it really is.Just shows what's possible with a bit of commitment and a hard attitude.I wish you all the best in your battle against The Scale.Soon you will be able to stand on the bastard and it's evil measuring power device pointer shall have no effect on you at all.It's ability to mess with the mind will will make you laugh as it is sent packing to the retirement home for mechanical monstrosities most mean.The place no evil gravity device can handle.That cold,dark place we all pass daily yet wish was not there...

    Who knows the horrors...what lurks within...THE CUPBOARD!!!

    I had a good fest of films over the night.Finally saw that £45 zombie one called Colin.Poor Colin,it's not his fault he's a crap zombie.Still,if you let your girlfriend bite you...

    So, last night, I found this:



    That's right. 24 straight hours of the ambient hum of the TNG Enterprise.

    With my new speakers and my subwoofer CRANKED, I left it on and slept like a baby. I found a girl I was friends with as a freshman in highschool (and haven't had contact with since, really) on facebook and sent her the link. She was a trekkie, and had always wanted that sound. She wrote me back, quite happy, and astonished that I'd remembered such a thing. Which is odd, because finding her to share it was the first thing I thought of.

    Rachael: YES! Alan linked that to me on Saturday, so I found a download of it (only loops for 1 hour 45 mins though) and then transferred it to an mp3 and put it on my speakers on repeat. Slept like a baby.

    Though my problem was that I read H.P. Lovecraft before I went to bed, so nightmares of death and madness happened. Lesson learned!

    Lovecraft dreams are the best. I once sat on a train with a backed-up toilet, the stench of which my subconscious sampled and replayed in a nightmare where an Elder Horror was squatting atop the Prudential Building.

    Earlier that week: Godzilla vs. Cthulhu, done up like a mid-90s Toho joint. It was pretty badass.
