AMEN. Yesterday was completely derailed by a low key Katie thang followed by me coming back home and folding up in a ball. Yes, I can haz post Conflikt letdown, happens every year, now I am expecting it. It is time to do things. I have THIRTY FOUR airs, songs and melodies on my new [...]
… Or I should say squawking, according to Jeff. I bought and brought back two packs of specially blended tea from Friday Afternoon, the Serenity blend and the Inara blend. The Serenity blend is extremely tasty (I’m consuming it right now) and the Inara blend we’ll have to wait to drink. Jeff and I have [...]
Several items of good news – I am meeting with a new bookkeeper on Thursday. I’ve applied to Alpha, where many of my former colleagues including Tom U. work. I have posted three new songs to youtube. I’m off to another WorkBC workshop, this one on the hidden job market. I have been greatly cheered [...]
A Christmas Duck not for eating. Went to the job hut yesterday and I’ll see a career counselor today at 9. I know how to write a resume and get interviews but since I’m not finding employment I’m obviously doing something wrong. And when you’re doing something wrong, you have to stop doing it [...]
Jeff was looking at the drives pOp gave him and there are slide shows. Oh, yeah. Here’s the best out of the lot. Bean with bacon soup is simmering on the stove; I don’t have to cook any more today, yay, as there is lots in the fridge to eat and the soup will be [...]
Wonderful meeting with Bareld; I am now feeling MUCH better about being a treasurer. He said “I’ve seen it all” and he shared. We often end services with “You are not alone” as the benediction, and he provided coffee chocolate and sage advice so I really felt the benediction! Also got to see Marylke briefly [...]
Alphabetically arranged for your convenience after the cut. So no, I haven’t written a song on all conceivable topics, but I certainly have given it a fucking whirl, in the immortal words of Doc on Deadwood.
This is the Ravensong, for one of the lead characters in Midnite Moving Co.
It’s like a slap in the face to get up and realize there’s NO MORE SUN. But hell, it’s October. And October is SOME OTHER PLANET Month. (Obligatory Joe Hall reference). I’m off to put gas in Ziva, maybe even for the last time as the plates expire at the end of the month and [...]
See, the great thing about filk is that other people get their hands on your stuff and add to it. Sometimes they add to it by being MUCH BETTER GUITARISTS than you and sometimes by polishing the lyrics, and sometimes by singing it better, and sometimes by playing it on a completely different instrument, in [...]
Steve Brust wrote the lyrics and I wrote the choon a couple of days ago. Here’s the link. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Y_gNvDU2Hs&
So I completely blew the interview yesterday – fell apart during the test. I solaced myself with beer and lobster afterwards, so thoroughly downcast was I, and my Lumosity score fell like a rock this morning subsequent to me having two beers, so, note to self – alcohol does make you demonstrably dumber, please avoid [...]
One of my filking fen has this to say on facebutt this morning: Insurance lawyers were put on earth so that we would learn to love the honesty and ethics of Plaintiffs’ lawyers. Made Peach and blueberry glop for pamcakes. Which reminds me I should make them. Happy sigh. Katie over yesterday, and as [...]
Much shredding yesterday. Jeff said I had centuries old stuff, but nothing I shredded was older than 2009 when we moved in here, so neener to that. More shredding today. Then all clothes either sent off to Goodwill or put away, finding a home for the papers that didn’t get shredded, vacuuming again because more [...]
