unchurch was delightful

/// but I still had to wash dishes, LOL. I am feeling kind of icky still but definitely better than late last week, when all I wanted to do was take to my bed. I’ve been practicing a lot. Otto sounds great.  The housefilk on Saturday evening was fun even if I bailed early.  If […]

My inner racist got taken for a thorough run this morning, when I received a barely literate and yet pun-enlivened email from the Taxi company subsequent to my angry complaint. I can’t repeat it because that would be racist.  (Oh look, a really bad pun, which ties into the race of the person writing it, […]

The world on the slowdown

Saturday, February 8th, 2014

Katie came by yesterday to cut my hair and listen to the message Keith left (so burbly!  So full of enthusiasm!  and his pa will join him soon!) so it was a brief but useful interaction.  We’re obviously still pretty sore with each other, but life f*cking well goes on. No word count yesterday; it […]

today, church and other things

Sunday, February 2nd, 2014

I’ve got to deal with revision 5994 of Mt. Washmore, Yesterday I baked banana bread (with orange zest, cardamom and almond butter, lordy but it was good) and took it to the house filk at Tom and Peggy’s, which was so poorly attended nobody else was there so I called Rob (who apparently is not […]

I woke up super early this morning

Saturday, February 1st, 2014

So I took out some trash and put salt down on the back deck so Jeff doesn’t skid down on his ass, cause it be icy out there. Jeff is off to Victoria this morning.  He will be watching the Superb Owl with pOp. Otto is back from the shop.  I paid because it was […]

I had a good time at Conflikt.  The end. Okay, more details. Princess Bob taught me to crochet. Cindy fed me chocolate.  Peggy brought me tea.  The Tinneys, all three of them in diverse ways, completely and totally kicked ass.  I got a Darth Vader plushie blanket and a couple of CDs and a couple […]

Happy sigh

Friday, January 24th, 2014

I am so happy to be going, and very happy to be getting a lift with Tom and Peggy. I’m just finishing up the packing.  I probably won’t be posting that much.  I’ll be back Sunday, inshallah.  

Off to Conflikt VII tomorrow morning!

I am so looking forward to it, but no Otto, sadly.    

Filk Band Camp Weekend

Friday, January 17th, 2014

I would like to have a weekend recording songs with my filking buddies. 1.  Ask a bunch of my favourite filkers if they would set aside a weekend to record.  Anybody who didn’t want to come didn’t have to, but it would be best for 10-12 people so there’s enough tracks for an album. 2. […]

Niccolo song

Tuesday, January 14th, 2014

I have followed lots of men to hell and halfway back again but you’re e-ffic-ient Your critiques ring in my ears and you play on my every fear and make me feel somehow deficient I will follow you and hand you gear when trouble’s brewing I will follow you When a brand new ship needs […]

I am home from the warz… GAFilk 2014!

Monday, January 13th, 2014

SO many awesome things. Met a lovely man, skated right up to having FEELINGS, and then sensibly consulted girlfrenz on those things I might want to know about in advance. So I had 12 hours of hope, and have gone back to my usual thinking guys are, well, you know – strange, difficult and clueless. […]

Leaving for Georgia soon

Wednesday, January 8th, 2014

I will be keeping a trip diary and posting irregularly… I have decided not to take my computer because I simply cannot afford to have it confiscated by the US government.  I have NOTHING on the computer which would warrant that, but I’ve been complaining under my real name about the US government for 10 […]

Catching up

Tuesday, January 7th, 2014

It’s been a lively couple of days.  I’ve been writing hard, practiced almost enough, played at church to sincere and life affirming compliments, showed the shop, made the decision to hand the keys over to the landlord, got into last minute negotiations with guys that came in at Christmas, had a spider drop onto my […]
