one a.m.
So i'm sitting here, watching Brainscan and eating scrambled eggs. Too wired from the show to actually sleep. The music this crazy guy is listening to is something that I feel like I could listen to...yay for movies that play with morality and the concept of violence in video games and movies.

as much as I love this show, I'm getting tired. exhausted really. school+work+show+moving=waaaaaayyy too much on my plate.

I need fun time. If anyone wants to chill out sometime you should call me. 559-473-5688. I need to go just hang out and have fun, like I used to. blah. I'm getting run down. it sucks. I hate being as irritable as I've been getting...

well, off to try to get some sleep.

dropped teh phone in the toilet. while at the show. quite embarrasing if you ask me. it now won't turn on, here's to hoping I can get a phone in a reasonable amount of time. i'm not sure how well i'll function without a constant lifeline to those around me.

so...if you want to get ahold of me for any reason, drop me an email, I can check that at work for the most part.

not that anyone ever really gets ahold of me for any reason...meh. it's there.

show's going well, no one has really seen it (in my group of friends at least...*wink wink nudge nudge*). but I get better on a nightly basis...its kinda amazing.

pruny fingers from doing dishes...not sure if I like that or not.

well, here's to hoping i get to sleep soon.

o1. Grab the nearest book.
o2. Open the book to page twenty-three.
o3. Find the fifth sentence.
o4. Post the text of the next five sentences in your journal along with these instructions:
--Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.
--Tag five other people to do the same.

Such a dumb concept. Old enough for what? To drink, to fuck, to know better? What fathead was in charge of making those decisions? For example, Snowman himself isn't old enough for this, this--what can it be called?

Oryx and Crake
By Margaret Atwood. (Ironically one of my very favorites, but it was really the closest. I keep my favorites close at hand. It was at the end of the bookshelf.)

Tagging...Omo, Jac, Ches, Britt, and Elisabeth. (And anyone else that feels the want to do it...)

whee post!
Opening night went great! The reviewer says otherwise, but it really was a lot better than it could have been. I really only had two mess ups..which is kinda amazing for me. It's only been getting better since then and its rather gratifying to have applause when you know its only for you! So, you all can come see the show any time now. Its great. Pictures at also, on the facebook page for roger rocka's. I've got two, but they're all great.

The apartment is mostly unpacked, and its looking like a real home now! I even found my super nintendo and hooked it all up. Its great. Y'all will have to come play wii sometime.

opening night is tomorrow. tonight i have an audience. i'm scared.

the site should be up with pics of chicago tomorrow.

check it.

i'm worried still though.
