Life is all about ass.

Everyone's either covering it, laughing it off, kicking it, kissing it, trying to get a piece of it, or simply JUST BEING ONE.

Hello LJ my old friend...

Before today, I haven't been on LJ in... a long time. Ages, in fact. So if I haven't known things I would usually know because you post them here, or commented on a post via LJ or in real life, that's why. Sorry... but I spend so much time on the computer at work I've started spending less and less time on my lappy at home.

Maybe I'll start reading again. Maybe. Heh.

For now, a slightly toasted (HUZZAH FOR GIN AND JUICE) Griffin is going to call it an earlyish night, methinks.

Subject:ATTENTION ALL PIRATES!!!
Time:12:59 pm.
Mood: busy.
Ahoy shipmates!

The Maritime Museum is offering a very short term job opportunity... RIGHT NOW!

We're looking for a couple of pirate characters to interact with the public at the Museum, to encourage ticket sales.


The gig would run from now (as soon as you can start) until April 12th, from 10am to 3pm daily.


Please note, as this is a family organization, the marketing director is very specific as to what she's looking for. The pirate characters will be interacting with children, as well as adults, and all attire and content MUST be completely PG.


As far as garb is concerned, there should be NO cleavage. I know some of you ladies have a lot to show off, but this isn't the time or place. Weaponry is allowed on your person, but it MUST be peace-tied, and you are NOT to brandish said weapons. They are for appearance only.


The Museum would like to present a "wholesome image". I laughed as I thought of the many pirates I know, and how many of them just don't fit that bill, but I digress... xD

So drop me a line if you're interested. I'm not aware of the finer details (payment, etc), but if I determine that you're a good prospect for the role(s), I'll put you in contact with our marketing director, and you can work out the details.


REMEMBER: As fun as this sounds, this is WORK. The objective is to encourage people to visit the Museum.
If we don't recognize a noticeable increase in gate revenue, your piratical career at the Museum will be short lived, savvy?

Subject:Heavy Hearted...
Time:11:46 am.
Mood: distant.
I feel sick.
Sick with sadness.
Sick with remorse.
Sick with regret.
Sick with confusion.
Sick with loss.
I'm having a hard time keeping myself together right now.
I'm a little short on self control.
I feel helpless.
Useless.
Unguarded.
Weak.
And yes, apparently very emo.

There's a lot going on in my life right now. I've been keeping it together pretty well, all things considered. But losing Zeke was enough to open the flood gates and let all of the emotions that I've tried so hard to hide away pour out once again. It seems like every time I start to get things back under control, something else happens that leads me to lose it again.

I know I'll pull through. I know I'll be okay. I might even come out of it stronger, and maybe even a bit more wise. But right now it's difficult for me to see the good things in life.

For the time being, I'm back to feeling distant, the world around me nothing more than some surreal landscape with too much going on and an eerie soundtrack to top it off.

I just got the news, my Zeke is to be euthanized tomorrow...



I'll miss you so much... rest in peace Zekie boy.

I'll probably do a memorial photo post or something over the next several days. I can't bring myself to look through all of my pics right now.

Mood: contemplative.
Fyi, this post will likely consist of a lot of thoughts jumbled together. I'm at work, so I can't focus completely on writing, and I'll be piecing this together over what is likely going to be a long period of time. *edit* Ended up taking two hours.

Awesome weekend was awesome. Griffin is exhausted but soooooooooooooooo much the awesome.

Friday night, saw Tragic Tantrum Cabaret at the Ken, followed by REPO! The Genetic Opera. Does anyone have any Zydrate? I think I'm a little bit obsessed.

Saturday night, saw Dannicus Live! At Thornton's Irish Pub. YAAAAARRR!!! I always be havin' a good time singin' with pirates.

Sunday night, saw The Skank Agents, One Drop, Chase Long Beach and Mustard Plug at SOMA (missed Dr. Skavra, damn). And I skanked! Fuck yeah!

Griffin is happy to report that she's coming out of her shell more and more. *nods*

And now... I'm fuckin' wiped out. But it's the good kind of wiped out.

*ruffles feathers and curls up with Newman and Renny in a pile of pillows and blankets*

NOM! *snore*

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. I go through phases like this all the damned time. I'm gonna try to start taking more advantage of them.

I'm steppin' up and steppin' out.

There are so many things that I wanna do with my life, and I just haven't been putting in any effort.

PRIMARY GOAL! Lose weight. I've made an effort a few times, sometimes more fruitful than others.
I NEED TO STICK WITH IT!

I want to spend more time on my artwork. I'd like to do something professionally (I could use the extra finances).

I need to revamp my website (again) and actually get it online this time (been workin on it since... um... 2002?).

I need to brush up on my html skills, mostly so I can make my website that much more full of awesome sauce.

I definitely want to learn to speak Irish Gaelic. If I could know any one language, that would be it.

I've also gotta work on my Irish accent for in-character purposes. I used to fool people all the time, but I've lost my tough. Gotta get it back.

I've always wanted to learn how to dance (swing, tango, ballroom, belly, etc). Just for kicks. And the exercise couldn't hurt either.

I need to pick up an instrument again. I used to play guitar, and I was first chair flute for a coupla years. I wanna try my hand at the penny whistle.

Those are what comes to mind first off. I'm sure there are many more things.

I claim that I haven't the time, but that's BS. Now, it is true that I'm busy as hell. But I could accomplish a lot more than I do, and I know it.

I also claim that I haven't the energy. Unfortunately, that IS true. I've just gotta work on getting more rest. I know I could put more effort into relaxing myself so that I can sleep easier.

So yeah... lets see how long this motivation lasts. Tonight I will work on cleaning my room some. I'll feel better about all of the above if I have a clean space in which to work on everything.

You know what's cool?

Huell Howser (of California's Gold and other similar shows on PBS) just called the Maritime Museum of San Diego, and I answered the phone.
:)

Now that's just plain nifty.

Conversation with my boss yesterday morning (Tuesday, 11/18/08)

Jim: Good morning kiddo.
Me: Mornin'!
Jim: How are you?
Me: ... Still recovering.
Jim: *raises an eyebrow*
Me: Went to a party last night for a friend's 21st birthday. *chuckle*
Jim: Oh. Long night then, eh?
Me: *nods slowly*
Jim: Drink a lot?
Me: *laughs* Oh yeah.
Jim: Good girl. So... what are you doing here?
Me: Still trying to sober up, I think.
Jim: *laughs and pats me on the back*

I went upstairs for a couple of minutes, and when I got back I found a bottle of water and some aspirin on my desk. Awesome boss is awesome.

Subject:I’ve been reading too much Shakespeare...
Time:12:33 pm.
Mood: creative.
More and more ideas for art are forming in my mind,
Yet I haven't lately found I have the energy or time
To put them down on paper. Even sketching a concept
Seems to take more than I have to spare, excepting
For those rare times when I'm driven by some force
Akin to inspiration, visions, a muse or some discourse
With an affecting friend or foe. The question now is how
To find the energy and time in which I can allow
My creative side to be expressed as it is wont to be
Without further draining the remaining life in me.

I'm cleaning my room for the first time in months. It's taking many many hours, over a period of three days, and I think I'm only halfway there. It's hard to tell.

I haven't really spent any time in my room in a very long while. I don't work in there. I don't play in there. I hardly even sleep in there. It's become somewhat of a storage area for my clothes and other crap, and that's about it. I get dressed in there, and I check on the snake and crabs a few times a day, but otherwise I spend a lot of my time at home in the living room.

It occurs to me, not for the first time, that I don't have a physical place to retreat to. I don't have anywhere to close myself off from the world, and just be. I'm gonna change that. I'm sure it'll take me a few more days to get my room squared away. It was pretty gnarly in there. Like a tornado hit... a few times. And like the room was tossed by someone looking for some information or something. And yeah.

But once it's clean and tidy, I'm gonna redecorate. I want a new bedspread anyway. I may or may not take down some of the pics on the wall. I'll definitely be digging my posters out of the closet, framing some of them, and putting them up. Gonna try to organize things better, and I'm also gonna try really hard to keep things from getting messy again.

Anyway, end of random post. Gonna grab a quick bite to eat and get back in there. Gotta keep moving while I'm still motivated.
