    @Fauxhammer:It's a bit funny this.Well,for me,that is.On the new Open Mic it seems you got my name mixed up with Flabyo's.

    So when i read "I do my wife's ears all the time"i found myself thinking "What's going on here?"

    I immediately heard a line from LUST FOR LIFE by IGGY POP in my debauched skull.

    I think he say's "Of course i've had it in the ear before" and,being a sicko,i envisioned a grown man having intimate relations with a woman's ears.Yes,i know-childish toilet humour-i accept responsibility.And when i read "You will be amazed at what comes out" my thought processes went right beyond the u-bend.

    I pictured the obvious but also a sorta ear-baby mutant that amazes and makes people shudder in revulsion as it is forced to do tricks in it's little sawdust strewn enclosure at some awful and struggling Victorian travelling circus of curious oddities and manifestations of mating mishaps.

    Sorry about that.I can't control what goes on in my head.Nobody want's to hug me tonight.

    I've had a night of being social. I like these nights, where I feel like I live in NYC for a fucking reason. I slept for about 15 hours, making up for the activity I've had earlier in the week. I woke, showered, dressed, headed out to meet up with Oldhat and Bankara, headed home, then took a detour to visit a bartender friend on the LES and closed the bar, got a cab home with a fellow I'd just met at the bar who lived near me, then ran into a neighbor as I arrived home at 5am and chatted in my kitchen till after dawn. Now, I sleep! When I wake I shall have the mental oomph to be productive and awesome!

    Today:

    - The city under a blanket of snow, like PROPER snow.
    - A festival of light, with a fire show and goshdarnit all too cute random lanterns all over one of the parks.
    - Hot chocolate.
    - The Skin I Live In, which was a wonderfully twisted movie. Semi-scifi thrillers might not sound like Almodovar's genre, but. Yeah.
    - And I guess that was a date? (I'm new at this.)

    Yesterday:

    - CAEK. A terrible horrible amount of cake. Pal's wifeyface has her birthday at the Christmas eve or something, she turned 30 and decided to bump the celebrations to January. They've had cake parties earlier (as in: everyone brings cake) but I think this one was the best so far.
    - Bubbly. Those who didn't bring cake, brought bubbly. Had just enough of it, until the sister of a pal started pouring drinks which were 1:1 vodka and mixers. My hair is screwed on a bit tight now.
    - Pals. New acquaintances and interesting conversations.

    Today:
    - Waking up to the smell of fresh bread, again. <3
    - Probably the last workday in my current job. Feeling kind of wistful, but relaxed. New adventures await.

    Oh, and @taphead - you go, girl!

    Last night was the lady's birthday.

    Last year, we had a big Sushi dinner, with like 6 other people, and while fun, we wanted a more low-key dinner.

    We went to this little place called Baba Yega's, and I had a fantastic tuna steak, just perfect. The lady had grilled trout, also very good. Walked home, hand in hand, no one followed us or tried to rob us this time, very great evening.

    It's funny the things you start being thankful for.

    So, yesterday was my last day working on Iron Sky, and now I'm unemployed for the first time in... shit,15 years or so. Feeling a bit weird about the fact, and about life in general. Good kind of weird, though. I'm feeling relaxed and serene in a way I've never felt before - ever since I got to the university in 1997 I've been driving myself far too hard, always scrabbling up and forward or away from something, but for the first time ever I'm feeling I don't have to do that. I can just... be.

    I see some lifestyle changes in the near future, as well as art. A whole lot of art.

    This made me smile, thank-you Vorn. I don't want to know, FYI, if it was a typo or not.

    ETA: Since the thread for it sank, I'm pleased I managed to mail my gifts out to all the White Chaplains on the list for the xmes card exchange this year! (They went out Saturday. . . >.> >.<)

    In a similar vein to @Vornaskotti, I've just officially applied for my "leave of absence" from college. I'm not sure if or when I'll return, but good god, the idea of having some breathing room to just... sit still for a moment; to feel safe and be able to just breathe and not be frantically feeling guilty for not doing a million pressing things; to be able to actually enjoy and be able to focus when painting, drawing, exercising, READING, socializing.... wow.

    I've already been gathering my things for future projects, been doing the small things like making my bed each morning, and have started drawing and photographing again.

    Also, the Reznor soundtrack to TGWTDT is just... so perfect for my brain in every conceivable way. Oh Trent, you are so superb at making seething chaotic tension! Mmmmf!

    Taking a leave of absence is a good idea if you need it. I wish I had when I was super depressed in late 2009, but instead I decided to stay because I thought that was what I should do, and I ended up failing a bunch of classes and destroying my transcript :/

    I saw Tekkonkinkreet last night as per Whitechapel and a local friend's request, and I LOVED it. Such a good movie.

    I still have a jar of stilton from Christmas. It's pretty much sentient now. And that's the way it should be.

    Had a good weekend, mostly sober, lots of free food, some photography, much cuddling. I'm finally developing some time-management skills as regards under- and oversocializing. And apparently the boy and I are going to take dancing lessons?

    Also I might have a copyediting job offer. Don't wanna jinx it, but, yeah. Would be amazing if it worked out.

    @JP Carpenter Eat its brains! Consume its power!

    @allana *crossed fingers* for the maybe thing. In the past, I have found dancing lessons to be a great way to spend time w. a s.o..

    I found a drafting / drawing table in the trash yesterday evening. Well, left out by the trash. A "deep discount moving sale," I call it.

    Sturdy. Clean. Looks intact. And damned if I know what to do with it.

    I used to draw a bit. Mostly descriptive and mechanical drawing. Maps for roleplaying adventures. Model rocket plans.

    But while I haven't totally gone over to computer-based drawing and layout, I don't know if dedicating a significant amount of floor space in my little office to this thing.

    If there's a Portland OR area Whitechaplainer artist who wants such a thing . . . .

    Mhh theatre. I love my theatre peeps. I love hanging out with them and I love just working at space and reactions and talking about why we do it and... ah... I love it. My chosen art form, plus excellent people who share my love. Always makes a good night.

    Okay, so... uh, that was a brief unemployment, then. Quit my work on Sunday, had a work interview on Monday, this morning I got a phone call "can you start tomorrow?", and I've spent today in briefings and handling the paperwork. Guess I'll be the communications co-ordinator of this, then, for the next year or so. :)

    Happy wallet is happy, and the department of industrial design seems like a really interesting place to work in.

    Blogged about the movie job, too: Leap Into The Unknown – Farewell to Moon Nazis
