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 […]

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 […]
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 […]
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.
I am so looking forward to it, but no Otto, sadly.
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. […]
This is what Play it With Moxie played at the Banquet at GAFilk.
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 […]
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. […]
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 […]
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 […]

( Burn Notice Filk) That Michael Westen is a pain in the ass Thinks he’s a hero and his friends are no better Oliver Peoples with the shatterproof glass Fi’s drowning so he’s gotta go and get her Average day, situation normal Enemies smile and loved ones frown Don’t need to be very formal They’re gonna […]
Everything went fine at rehearsal in the morning… but when I went to Tom and Peggy’s for tea, treats and a run through of my set list after supper yesterday, this is what I found out. I do have performance anxiety, and I performed considerably worse in front of people taking pictures of me that […]
