    Quick dash in to say hello as I'm on set this week and the early starts/long drives are killing me but between doing the corset/steampunk thing and getting shut in the boot of an Aston Martin db9 to jump out again; and my more 'normal' PR job I'm having a fucking blast and learning *so* much...

    Plus there is some seriously good comedy material quietly bubbling away in my head from all this!

    going to bed now, five thirty start again tomorrow... 0-0

    Good and bad and hugs all around. Great VO workshop, insight, info, tips, tricks and work and direction for improvement. Not a lot on performance but a butt load on getting into the right places, getting seen/known by the right people, business considerations, handling auditions, etc. Good, all around. And I got compliments on my booth time as well as critical notes that I know how to work with right away. Worked in front of a casting director for a national TV show that uses a ton of talent on weekly basis and he has my info now...

    Phone died. The battery housing gave up and will not keep the battery jacked in. The phone *will not* turn on. So it's a bit of a crisis. And also it means I didn't and probably won't get to meet & hang with Robin on her trip out here. Fuck...

    Yesterday, I got two random emails from unrelated people I hardly know, to compliment me on my work.

    That was rather amazing.

    Today, I went out to meet an old friend of mine fron highschool who is visiting from San Francisco. I managed to wander into MoCCA for free, got to see awesome people, and was treated to a fancy desert afterwards. Hooray! What a fabulous day!

    On my first proper holiday since the last summer, four days at the cabin. Finally getting my brain and body to unwind after all the weird work and other mess of this winter.

    Turned 37 today and started the day on the sunny shoreline, drinking coffee and thinking about life. Somehow, in spite of temporary setbacks, things seem to be getting more and more awesome by the year. I kind of wish I could take a 3D snapshot of my life as it's now and send it to the 18 year old me with the following cover letter: "just keep at it, you morose little wanker - things are going to turn out even more amazing you could imagine".

    My fiancé's sister just got her first baby yesterday, and the womenfolk are heading over to the city to coo at the newborn (or, in my fiancé's case, look at the pink grub with a mixture of suspicion and bewilderedness) so I'll have the cabin site all to myself. It's Vappu here in Commie Reindeerland, which is the biggest festival type of celebration of the year. I think I'm going to spend it on the shoreline, burning sticks and leaves, and letting the brain stop.

    Today is a fucking good day. No barking from the dog, no smog, and I cooked a breakfast with no hog.

    Properly crappy weekend for the most part. Stupid burglar alarm in the vets under my flat going off at random, chucking it down with rain all the time, not happy with work.

    Went to see the Avengers to cheer myself up. And my word it worked.

    Paid off the credit card. Happens every year around tax-return time, but it's always pleasant.

    Spent 28 hours with the boy; had a Talk about my upcoming move and thus our upcoming LDR. Looks like it'll probably be bollocks, but it'll be For Science (who knew I'd find someone worth keeping around?), so I'm looking forward to working around it.

    Reading a bunch of BPRD issues I found in the library. Found a nice bookshelf on the street and promptly started rearranging all my furniture. Working my way through a pile of sewing projects; knitting a sweater; expecting tomorrow to be nice enough weather to plant all the seedlings on my windowsills in the backyard. Maybe building a flower bed or two out of leftover brick. Then maybe I'll write this essay. Days off are great!

    Lost my job.

    I now no longer have any excuse not to write 2,000 words a day, get back into shape, save money on gas, catch up on my reading, learn some new cooking dishes, and spend some long-neglected time on these fine forums.

    Fuck yes.

    That is a much, much bigger relief than I would have thought it was!

    Shitstock! I'm down to 0.8mg on the Subutex, in a few days I'm gonna drop to 0.4...it's soon gonna be the big, fat horror-chair of bulbous realitus for me. I will need to dredge-up every weird skill of sonic-insanity-management to survive the cellular-degradation that will assault my crappy human anatomy to survive this shit.

    I'm either going into a foul hospital to squirm and be prodded, a rehab outside the city to find God, or just do what I do best, and inflict my suffering on any bastard that will have me.

    Ahhh, let the sickness commence!

    Edit to add: Happy Birthday, Vornaskotti! I'm buying you a virtual pint.

    I have awesome people who want me to succeed and are helping where/when/how they can. Or just giving hugs and kind words when I need 'em.

    Happy freaking birthday, Vorn!!

    I went shopping today. I have pants that fit well. Multiple pants that fit well. I am so happy about this, it's stupid.

    @Vornaskotti: Happy Birthday! And Happy Vappu? Sounds like a fun holiday.
  4.  (10600.117)
    Thanks for the birthday wishes everybody!

    flecky:

    Strength, man, you'll pull through - although if you end up finding God, be sure it's one of the Elder Ones!


    /me saunters off to have a brunch of bubbly wine and funnel cakes, before picking up an axe and going to finish what got started yesterday.
