Hallo fronds. Do you like Cirque du Soleil? Are you free on Friday, November 2nd? Would you like to join me in seeing Saltimbanco at Agganis Arena at 8 PM?

If so, comment or email me, as I very, very much want to go, since I adore Cirque du Soleil, and the music from this show in particular, and would love company. :)

I constantly think in the back of my mind somewhat wistfully that I wish I were doing more of certain activities.

Included amongst them:
- walking (though I do generally do this a fair bit when I'm not freezing)
- reading
- composing
- cooking
- planning (and executing (and oh dear, that is such a project management phrase)) social activities
- sewing (mostly costuming)
- visiting people (somewhat local folks, but also farther afield folks whom I do not see often enough)

I am going to try to keep some sort of notation when I'm doing these things, I think. Theoretically a journal is not a bad idea for a place to put it, and heavens knows I'm not using it for too much else...

So in that spirit:
This weekend I cooked my bastardized (vegetarian) version of chilaquiles (which I should make a note to finish more of off in the next couple days before I leave for NY).
I also read Mastiff (by Tamora Pierce) (which I need to give back to Lynne).
Yesterday I did a small amount of composition (for Stranger Ways as we work on our next album - yay :)) that should be possible to flesh out into a complete song... providing we can lyricsify it, which I am the suck at.
And I've done some walking... maybe I should start trying to carry a pedometer with me or something to work out exactly what I'm doing here.

On the less successful front... I tried to rally a bunch of us to go do a dinner out for Restaurant Week and failed abysmally. Comedically. Ridiculously.

Basic summary:
Last week:
Me (to Beth): We should Restaurant Week.
Beth: We should! Haz free times?
Me: Buh? Um. Next Monday, Wednesday or Thursday, possibly?
Beth: Wednesday could work.
Me: OK! *sends email to five people, asking about freeness on Wednesday*
Person 1: I can't do that!
Person 2: Unfortunately, I'm now sick!
Me: Wait, I actually can't do Wednesday either, now!
Beth: And me neither.

All: Uh. Victory?

*headdesk*

So yeah. In the future, I really need to cordon off some Restaurant Week time in advance and actually plan with more than just one possible day available.

So I am on a boat, and will be wandering the Caribbean for the next week. I know my online presence isn't usually a whole slew, but thought I would mention there will be radio silence from my end once we disembark later today.

I will be having an awesomesauce time concerting and singing and generally being ridiculous. :D

Hope you all have a lovely week while I am away... and watch for octopodes. (I hear they're back.)

...but this is not it.
 
I did, though, want to mention that I made it through Arisia and its two concerts. Arisia details )

Oh, and now that Stranger Ways' new album is officially released, allow me to link our bandcamp site for it: http://strangerways.bandcamp.com/album/guilt-angst-fairy-tales

As with everything, I have a hard time not listening for flaws (and I particularly have a hard time listening to my voice), but it's really neat that there's a CD out there that I'm a part of.

I had a wonderful and lovely Thanksgiving, and was extremely happy to spend time in the quiet of Vermont, surrounded by excellent company. While intermittently pulling catering reports for work. As one does.

New job flailing and panicking + general happiness )
Anyhow. If I haven't said it lately - in between all the frustration, flailing, and feelings of being too busy to cope, I love my life and the people in it. :)
