I get to be the heroine in the first melodrama of the summer up in Cloudcroft because I was in the right place at the right time. It may not be real theatre but it's about as close as we get here. Also get to play Judy Garland in the celebrity murder mystery for the Kiwanis club. Might be fun. Wish we had more than a month to work on it though. Oh well... we'll do what we can.

|you know you needed a vacation...
when you don't want to come back. Of course it didn't help that most of you that I saw while in Indy didn't really want me to leave either. I appreciate that. Thanks to dayzdark
for another wonderful party, and for giving up your bed to a very travel weary person. All together I had too much fun. There were only a few instances when I didn't find myself beaming because I felt like I was finally home again. Didn't get to RP as much as I wanted due to said weariness but all things considered I had a lot of fun. Wish I could have spent more time with one person but hopefully that will be remedied in the spring. Didn't go ice skating this time due to weak ankle concerns but did get out bowling and saw people I haven't seen in years and watched Wall-E and bought dice, so overall the trip was pretty productive. Only problem is that now I'm really homesick. And I really miss people again. But now I have different choices to make when I move back. We'll see what comes of that. Anybody want to have lunch in Lafayette on June 27th? I might be coming back for my cousin's wedding. :)
Think that's all for now. Current Mood: pensive

|really can't afford to but...
I'm coming to Indy for New Year's. Why, because I miss people and I don't want to be alone. So I get into the airport at 3:06 pm Tuesday Dec. 30 and leave the airport at 4:45 pm Sunday Jan. 4. Hope to see quite a few of you while I'm there at least for a little while. So anyway, yay, I get away for five days or so. I really need it. :)

|I have named the kitties
may I present Viktor
. Anyone who hasn't played Suikoden really should. Viktor is so named because he's a bit bigger and has a tendency toward rash actions like trying to catch bees. Flik is so named because you can't have one without the other. So there. :P

but I'm getting new glasses so that should help... of course I won't get them until next Thursday or so... and the opthalmologist wants me to take another eye test but that's not until early Feb.
I haven't been feeling particularly well either, mostly nauseous for no reason.. but I go to my normal dr. on Tuesday so I'll bring it up then... silly nonfunctional body..
that's about it..

|tornadoes are not something I miss..
Apparently one of my second cousin's houses was completely demolished and my mom's cousin's house was 70% demolished. They weren't even there, they were in TN at the time. What's mildly amusing is that both live in the same neighborhood in Nappanee.. also, had the twister stayed on the ground it would've hit my aunt's house as well.. fun fun fun
How did everyone else do?
Yesterday I actually managed to do things like repotting plants and putting the rest of my cds in the computer so I can listen to them if I so desire... now I just need to work on my Europe pictures, and eventually other pictures.. probably not today though..
just wondering why my body woke up so damn early.. Current Mood: tired

|wee bit of a storm last night..
is what's left of the timer for the well on the property.. it's about 50 yards away from the house.. methinks the lightning was a little too close this time.. :P

Got a few responses about my playwriting contest. One from a student who wants to participate, the other from a lady out on base who wants to spread the word about it. This makes me happy. I sent the first the rules & the second the rules & flyer for the contest so she can distribute them. I hope we get enough good scripts by the end of January for this to happen next summer. :)

probably not since I'm sunburned, but I just got back from a retreat that included yoga, qigong, tai chi & reiki.. so I now have contact with a reiki master who is willing to work on some things with me & hopefully sort out some of my issues.. also met someone who's only a year older than I am but everyone else was from El Paso, so visiting will be a 1.5 hour trip each way. Not too bad when considering that my aunt & uncle also live there. In fact, my aunt talked me into attending the self defense class taught by the man who organized the retreat.
I do feel more relaxed.. just hope I can keep this going... right now I'm tired and nearly incoherent.. tomorrow I'll be really sore.. rofl.. wheee for new things that twist your body in ways it's not used to..

no time on stage for me this fall... guess I simply can't compete with someone the director already knows whose child is chosen as one of the leads & therefore she makes the perfect mother...
can't figure out if this is incredibly bad luck or if I really suck at the only thing I consider myself decent at... either way it's annoying as hell

|glutton for punishment..
One more play to try out for. "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever" is going on in Ruidoso. The plus side is that I've played the role I want before, the minus is the one hour drive each way. My mom will be auditioning as well for a smaller part. I already talked to the director. Just need to go blow them away.
I also got an extra bit in the weird movie they're making around town. Get to go do that tomorrow evening. I don't get paid, but maybe I'll get some screen time. :)
Now if I can just manage to sleep through the night tonight. That might help things a bit. Current Mood: sleepy

|up too early
so I will be going to a martial arts seminar (don't know if that's accurate considering it's completely participation, but it's called the Ruidoso Roundup & that's a bit too southwest for me) the first weekend in October. Mom thinks it will be therapeutic & is therefore helping with the associated costs. Thank goodness. But hopefully I'll be able to get in some sort of shape other than round & pudgy by then.
I auditioned for a movie but I doubt I'll be cast as anything. There's some nudity in the picture so that made me a little hesitant to begin with. Still, I could take some vacation time from work & get paid for the movie on top of that. Wouldn't that be lovely? Still need to get back to the lady at the college on the community ed thing. But I haven't had any brilliant ideas & I keep getting caught up in my non-life.
Today we have Cottonwood festivals in two places, Alamogordo & Cloudcroft. Also planning on hitting one of my friend's exotic pet shops. She's having a baby in Dec. after years of trying, so I'm really excited for her. Mom also wants to see the new Hastings that opened earlier this month. It's new & shiny & doesn't seem to fit in Alamogordo.
In sad news, the mother of my babysitter from when I was little just passed away. Wish I could go to the funeral, she was like another grandmother to me. Have to be content with sending flowers or something though. She was a phenomenal person.
Think I'll go try to cheer up & wake up now.

woke up just in time to see the last few minutes of the total lunar eclipse.. and two shooting stars.. you can see so many stars out here, it's amazing.. the red moon tops it though..
maybe it's a sign, full moon & total eclipse on my b-day.. or maybe it'll just be a really wacky day since it was an allergy attack that brought me in.. :P

|have you ever seen a house fly, a house fly, a house fly...
my dad has now seen a police car fly
, unfortunately the landing was a bit off..
I drove by and noticed my dad's car in the parking lot next to all the vehicles with flashing lights on my way to wally-world & drove back that way while my prescription was being prepped to see if he was involved at all, so I got a pretty good look at this end result.. fortunately dad was only an eye witness as opposed to being more actively involved... but yeah
