I was hoping for once a week. Apparently I am bad at this. I am unsure exactly how I am doing at the moment, but I am alive...and feeling better than I was at lunch. Tonight's plan is pretty simple : people watching at the mall...where I also hope to find bath & bodyworks with things I want. I have a coupon, after all, and I would love to use it. :)

I have not typed up a post in a while. Obviously. I am not taking much time to do so right now, either...but I plan to post soon. I have a lot to talk about, and not the time to delve into it. So I will be back, I promise. I have been doing well with writing in my journal practically every day, so I should be able to get into the habit of doing this at least once a week.

Yeah, that is literally what this short little blurb is about. See you soon.

"God rest ye, merry gentlemen, let nothing you dismay! Remember Christ our savior was born on Christmas day to save us all from satan's power when we were gone astray...Oh, tidings of comfort and joy - comfort and joy! Oh, tidings of comfort and joy!"

"It's a long way home, and all I see is darkness - an angel in a dark dress - don't you leave me here. It's a long way home, and all I see is darkness - I'm in a sea of darkness, so don't you leave me here!"

I'm swinging back and forth between being crazy-happy about the holidays and such, and crashing down wondering what the f**k I'm going to do with myself. I've been out Christmas shopping, and it's all done (except for the dog and some candy for stockings). I have yet to manage to finish trimming the tree. I mean, there are ornaments on it, but not all of them are up yet. I also haven't actually wrapped any of the presents I've purchased. It's like "Yay, Christmas! I have presents for people!", but the idea of wrapping those presents is...exhausting? I don't know. I am so glad that I have tomorrow off, and that I get a day off next week, too. My plan is to wrap stuff. I would very much like to not fall apart when I do so.

I miss my mom.

So, I was expecting it to be a rainy, miserable day today, as it was kind of bleh out yesterday. However, when I woke up this morning, it was bright and sunny out!! Whoo-hoo!! This makes me happy. (Also, Happy Thanksgiving!)

Saw Hugo last night, and it was pretty awesome. :)

Apparently, however, I don't feel much like posting anything useful. ::laughter::

I am writing a new scene that's taken over my brain, though. Makes me happy. :)
tricksters_queen: Beautiful picture, which looks very much like it's title "darkest night", makes me think of dark dreams. (darkest night)
It gets dark pretty early now, and it's not even at the point of the shortest day. I'm feeling sick right now (anxiety), but I'm posting to lift myself up a bit.

A random aside about Kevin Hearne (The Iron Druid Chronicles author): It would appear that he worships Neil Gaiman. This makes me like him So. Much. MORE! Seriously, it made me squee - which is also a subject brought up in the third book, Hammered. ::laughter:: Seriously. It more than made me smile, it made me laugh out loud happy. Also, there will be another book, so that's good. :)

On the subject of the mixed cd's I've been working on, I have 4 filled up now, but I think I might have a little work yet on the song order of 2 or 3 of them. Still, I'm pretty happy with the progress. Music is a good thing.

Although it won't be possible to write it for NaNoWriMo, I am happy to be working on my "Souls of Winter" story. I've started on the second pov, which is a little more difficult to write, but I think I'm going to like the challenge. I'm still debating if there will be a third pov or not. I'll have to see how the flow of the story goes. If it fits, then yes, if not, then no. :p It is a somewhat convoluted plot, I admit, but if I can pull it off, it should be pretty awesome. :)

It's gonna be a long, crazy, fun weekend. :) Must remember to breathe. :)

A Good Day

It's been a good day.

I'm off for three days in a row this week - huzzah for Jewish holidays when I work for a Jewish-run company!

My mini-vacation started today, and I did very little that might be construed as constructive. ::laughter:: Which is pretty much what I wanted to do today. I've been finding music, and paying attention to lyrics, and working on my "assignment" for my next music therapy session, which is next Monday, but I didn't do anything around the house. :p Tomorrow, I'm hanging out with a friend. Thursday... I don't know exactly what I'll do on Thursday yet. Friday is the usual group get-together. :)

I'm excited because on Saturday I have a concert to go to, and next weekend, I get to go to the Ren Faire again, which I wasn't at all sure I'd get to do. :) It'll be a later start than usual, because my dad wants to see the joust, which is pretty much the last thing that goes on during the day. I need wine, and lip balm. ::laughter::
tricksters_queen: (foxgloves)
Okay, I have some time and the inclination to post. At the same time even!

Last weekend was good. I saw One Day with a couple of friends on Friday - predictable, but enjoyable, and I like Anne Hathaway. She, along with the idea of watching two people on the same day throughout different years of their lives were the two reasons I wanted to go see a Romantic Drama, because I'm not usually up for those. It made me cry - and that had rather little enough to do with the movie. I've got good friends, though, and it was probably a good thing for me.

Sunday, a couple of friends, my dad and I all headed up to NYC for the day! We went and saw another friend of ours in her production of A Midsummer Night's Dream! (Come, now, you're not even the least bit surprised by that, are you.) ::laughter:: It was a great time, and Puck and I got our picture taken with Puck. :) Fanatic that I am, I was also wearing my Puck shirt, so yeah. Funnily enough, since our friend had warned the girl that was playing Puck that I was coming (well, not me specifically, just a friend of hers that was really enamored of Puck), she wasn't even disturbed by my fanaticism, which was nice. (I think I might have kind of freaked out the guy playing Puck from the Wilmington Drama League a few months back...) ::laughter:: Anyway, had some good food and enjoyed the play, got to see our friend...and we had an adventure (that we could have done without!) on the way home. Our train stopped for a bit over an hour. There was "police activity" at one of the stations ahead of us on our way home. Speculation by another passenger who rode frequently was that "police activity" meant a jumper; I don't know, but I rather hope not. ::shakes head:: Not much of a pleasant thought for that.

I don't recall if I've mentioned before, but Dad and I have been going to grief counseling. We were doing private sessions for a few weeks, and now we're doing a twice-monthly group thing. I think it's a very good thing for us. It's a little weird for me being the only one who's not grieving the loss of my spouse, though. Well, okay, weird is not exactly the right word. It's just a rather different kind of loss. Still, I really like the other people in the group, and it's nice to have understanding and share stories and hear others' thoughts and feelings.

I'm not singing as much as I used to - even when I'm feeling really good. I'm listening to plenty of music, but I still feel as though I'm missing music. All I can think is that I miss singing, or playing music (on the piano), but I don't's like I'm just not quite in the mood to sing. As for the piano...heh, well, that would require having one, which I no longer do. I think I'm going to save up for a while and get myself a nice keyboard - I'll have enough room for a keyboard, and they make some that are meant for piano players who don't have enough room, with weighted keys and everything. I'll have to look into it, because I'm apparently not much for singing of late.

Ah, and then there was the earthquake weirdness on Tuesday. What the frell? ::laughter:: Some people thought it was fun, others were terrified. Me? I was too startled to think much beyond "We're having an earthquake? What do you mean we're having an earthquake? We're in Delaware...we don't get earthquakes..." and the earthquake was over. It took me the better part of an hour to get a hold of my husband. Got through to my dad almost immediately, and he hadn't even felt it where he was. Just plain weird. And now we're going to have a hurricane. Yippie skippy. :p Lots of rain and wind. I'm going to...I have no idea what I'm going to do. Not work, apparently, though. ::laughter::
tricksters_queen: (foxgloves)
It is so gray outside today! It's kind of getting me down - I have to walk home. Bleh.

I have house cleaning to get done, so I'll be leaving the bookstore shortly, to walk in the rain. ::laughter::

I'm waiting for a good number of movies to come out this year - Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger, X-Men: First Class and several others. It's the Marvel year. ::laughter:: Though there is also Green Lantern, which is DC. Next year should give us the final installment of the Batman trilogy, and the next Star Trek film, which I really am excited about. :) (It would appear that the entire cast will be returning for it, which makes me incredibly happy.)

I want tomorrow and Thursday to be done and over with - trying out for X-Factor is not stressing me out the way I was when I tried for America's Got Talent, as I now know what I'm getting into - but I can't wait for it to be done so that I can get on with things. :p

Besides, I'm really looking forward to the weekend. My cousin is coming to visit, I'm having a party, and we're going to go see A Midsummer Night's Dream on Sunday. Friday needs to be now! :)
tricksters_queen: (twas a romp)
First day of training: the 19th of this month. Yay for me!

In other news, I'm insane - I'm going to try out for X Factor next week. :p

Also, my cousin will be visiting next weekend, and I really can't wait to see her! ::bounces::

Can't wait, can't wait!! :D
tricksters_queen: (Default)
Oh, goodness. It's been more than ten days, and I really hadn't planned on waiting so long to post again. ::laughter::

Oh well. We're getting into the holidays, which means that soon, I shall have no life of my own. My life will consist of work, sleep, and - if I'm lucky - food. :) (Speaking of which, I will need to do something about that today, too... ::laughter::)

I have managed, somehow or another, to get a majority of my Christmas shopping done all ready. Which is awesome. I usually try to do this over the course of the entire year. This year, I've had no money. It sucks. ::laughter:: However, I'm pretending to have money for the holidays anyway, and life goes on. :) I'm very pleased with what I've managed to do. I just need, uh, well, wrapping paper. ::laughter:: Wrapping paper to wrap stuff in would be good. :)

The Chef has given me a Christmas Mix cd. It is awesome. :) And very weird, which is partly why it's so awesome.

Jessica Saunders has managed to talk a lot of late, so I think the third part just managed to get itself made into a 3rd and 4th part for Puck's Interview. I'm enjoying the storyline, even if I have no real point to what I'm writing it for. ::laughter:: Someday I'll go back to real work with my writing. But not just yet.

In other news, a friend of mine got married recently and some of the pictures are up on Facebook, and they're fantastic. I can't wait to go to the reception on December 12th! :D I suppose I should figure out what I'm expected to wear... and I want to call Thessalie, too.

In case I don't manage this later : HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!!!!! :)
