    • OJ, Port Wine Cheese, and Reach...

      8 years ago

      Yesterday I felt it coming. The itch at the back of my throat, the post nasal drip, the slightly headache kind of feeling....oncoming sickness. I also had to work for 12 hours.

      I made it through the day and today feeling a bit worse but still OK in general. Also I was done and home by 4pm. So in an attempt to keep from getting sicker instead of joining all my wonderful friends out to party on St. Patrick's Day I'm staying home. Of course I made a grocery run for OJ, and then had to get port wine cheese because it makes me happy, and now I'm having crackers and cheese and orange juice and killing people on the Defiant Map Pack.

      I medicate myself with food and slaughter.

      On the bright side I'm getting my tax return soon, and money from my new jobs are rolling in, so I'm going to actually spend some quality time this weekend buying D&D stuff for fun. I think I need metal dice.

    • How about some TWIG?

      Tonight on LateNight JengaJam: PAX East Recap with Achievement Hunter's Fragger, Jozef "Microbe" Garcia and John Sedlack!! Want to know about the wonders of PAX East? Call in!!

      But first I will, as sometimes, have This Week In Geek, a 5 minute news segment of the weird and geeky. Do you know of some recent geek news we should be talking about? Reply here, or message me, or send me smoke signals, and I'll thank you on the show as we talk about your news! It's been a while since I was able to say all the news in one TWIG episode were fan submitted, and I think the PAX episode is the perfect one to do it again!

      TONIGHT: Tuesday night at 10:30pm Eastern/7:30pm Pacific!!

    • I'm On A Boat!

      Well a Ferry really.

      Ferry1.jpg

      I had a gig out on Bainbridge Island this evening, which requires a ferry ride to get to. While I have been on a boat before I had not had a ferry ride until tonight. So before my gig I got to geek out and think to myself several times, "I'M ON A BOAT!" My car was even at the very front of the boat as I was one of the first in line thanks to being too late for the previous departure.

      Ferry2.jpg

      That cute little dog in the picture came about 2 inches away from tripping into the water, as it went trotting up past the rope line and right to the edge just as the ferry was pushing off from the dock. The lurch was sudden and large enough that I was thinking I was going to see cute little doggie life preservers appear to be thrown after the poor pooch. But he held his ground and disaster was averted.

      Ferry3.jpg

      The rehearsal went fine and I caught the ferry back. Now I don't have to go back for two weeks. I think I need to bring a fishing pole the next time.

    • Look! Another Degree!

      7 months ago I finished my Music Technology Masters Degree at the University of Akron. In the last 7 months I have moved across the country, found and lost and found a few jobs, started a new life in a new city, recorded tons of music, played a bunch of gigs, and had an awesome time with my boyfriend.

      It only took the University of Akron 7 months to print out my diploma.

      AkronDiploma.jpg

      Yeah, I'd given up on getting ANY official confirmation on my graduation or diploma. But Akron finally decided to catch up and send me a piece of paper. So now the last 7 months I've had on my resume that I graduated are no longer kinda lying.

      This is 1 Bachelors to 2 Masters degrees. I think if I get another Masters I get a PHD free!!

    • Painting, Messages, and Painting...

      Luke is still selling his B2T painting. Someone want to buy it for me? smiley8.gif

      Speaking of painting, if you've been watching my images you probably saw the finished version of Klayed the Cleric up in my images. That's a front and a back version, but here's another shot of just the front that shows off the color a bit better:

      KlayedClose.jpg

      I'm pretty damn proud. Now I'm not allowed to be another character for a while, because that was a lot of work!

      Finally if you are a fan of Fat, Ugly or Slutty you might have recognized the image that was posted today. That's because i posted it a while ago in my images...because it's from me. In fact the ones from yesterday are from me as well.

      I love this site. It's funny, it's shows why sometimes us girls stay silent in pregame lobbies, and it reminds me that I'm not alone when it comes to idiots on XBL.

    • The Colors of Klayed

      8 years ago

      OboeCrazy Freelancer

    • Stage Theaters, Dog Walks, & Carnies...

      One of these days, when I have a few hours of free time and a few bottles of beer, I will tell the complete story of my week and a half stint running the carousel at my local mall. The tale is full of hope, fear, surprise, suspense, insanity, backstabbing, and cotton candy. I may forgo the journal and just write the screenplay for the movie immediately. Spielberg may want to buy it.

      But let's not dwell on the past in this journal but push forward to the future. A future filled with employment.

      Last week began with being let go from said Carousel job (and includes said story to be told later) which was not an auspicious beginning to the week. However this week began with a much more promising start because of three things:

      1. Luke arrived
      2. Interviews arrived
      3. Fun stuff arrived (Star Wars Burlesque thanks to Ashley, parties thanks to Kitty, movies thanks to Casey)

      1 and 3 need no extra explanation, but 2 needs elaboration. The short version of the long stories are that after several interviews and hard work I managed to snag not one but TWO job offers between Thursday night and Friday morning.

      Job #1 is a part time job at a stage theater in their box office. I start this Thursday with a meeting about their subscription series going on sale. This is an exciting job because it's in my field (the arts in general), I have stage theater box office experience, and one of the perks is free tickets to all sorts of awesome musicals and bands. If you watch my Twitter and saw me tweet about an amazing interview that included the question "If you could have one super power what would it be and why?" that was for this job. Us artsy people are fun.

      Job #2 is a full time job for a large dog walking and pet sitting company in Seattle. The pay is really good, the job is awesome (I walk happy dogs all day, who'da thunk?), and the owner is so swamped with work that I can pick up as many hours as I desire. It's not quite as glamorous or artsy as working in the Theater, but I get paid to play with puppies. And get exercise while doing it.

      So this week will be spent finalizing and coordinating schedules, waiting for background checks, and peeing in cups. But if all goes well by next week I'll have more work then I know what to do with! Yeah steady happy employment!!

      Thanks to everyone who sent me love and support the last few weeks. It was appreciated more then you could ever understand. smiley12.gif

      Sadly, they don't play the entire 14 minute piece, they, like most movies that use it, stick to the exciting latter parts... but it still comes off really well. It's a version that I wasn't familiar with, and they didn't use the Boston Pops' cannons... to be fair, though, they substituted something else that's more appropriate for the film to constitute the "explosive percussion" section.
