A few weeks

It's been a pretty amazing couple of weeks. I made a few awesome costumes - both that can and will be used for multiple occasions throughout this and every year. Awesome. I'm really proud of my work... even though in the middle of the costume making my sewing machine broke and the repair shop said it would cost more to fix than it would to just buy a new machine! So. I bought a new machine. And I complain about it (the buttonholes are automatic; at first I thought that would be amazing, but now I'm not so sure. When the buttonholes didn't work.) but everything's okay, and I seem to have a way to compensate, so that's all wonderful.

Hindsight: should have taken some pictures of the process and posted them.

Anyway, to complete my ensemble, I need me some suspenders and a tie tac. And also I'm probably going to try and make a holster for my steampunk gun. AND I MADE A STEAMPUNK GUN. Wow, stream of consciousness much?

Aaand the real reason I'm writing here is that I need to get back into practice; shows later this month. Also, writing is cool, right?

Because I am a wasteful American, I am typing on my laptop while my other computer sits in the other room. It's strange to have more computers in my household than some people ever have.

Also, I had a little bit to drink tonight, some bad wine here at home, and some wine back at my mom's house. A good end to a pretty terrible day of not finding a place to park and having some awkward interactions with people during the show. It's weird, some days you really understand and like people, and it seems they like you, and other days, it's like everybody's being a dick. Sometimes there are just days of perfect storm assholery.

The good things that have been happening is that the weather has been cooling down, and they've started playing Halloween movies on TV... don't tell Monica, but this really is my favorite time of year. Unfortunately, Monica is sick tonight, so I'm keeping her company at a safe distance. But hey, at least there was scooby doo and horror movies made for kids.

Call Me Madam continues to be fun and successful. It's so much fun to be in a show I believe in and am having a blast with. So fuck yes. And my part gets goofier and goofier, and that's always excellent.

Working on my new computer is pretty awesome. And that it was cheap, awesome, and super duper fast equals even more amazing. I do love me some computing. And later, I'm going to install another partition and have some gaming fun! I am such a geek.

Holy fuck! My computer came super early! I was going to use today to back up my current computer and set everything up on my external hard drive. I'm still going to do that today, but I can't stop drooling over this new thing. The gaming capabilities... oh man! And also it's just joyful. So joyful.

And the play's going well. I'm actually liking going out with my castmates. I usually hate my castmates!
