So, 2008. You mostly sucked as a year. I was thinking about it, and I have almost nothing to show for this year, despite feeling incredibly busy all the time. I only wrote two things all year (for [livejournal.com profile] yuletide and [livejournal.com profile] popoffacork); I sang some shows with some groups, but didn't do any theater; I have the same job I started the year with (albeit with a raise) and am working more hours for what feels like running in place. I did have a very nice vacation to Alaska with my family, though, so I'll count that in the plus column. But really, this just feels like a lost year.

For 2009, I have a few goals, but I'm not going to call them New Year's Resolutions because I will inevitably break them if I tie them to the year.

1. Lose 30 pounds from my heaviest, preferably by the time my college reunion rolls around in early June. I want to weigh somewhere between 165 and 170 pounds, down from a high near 200. I'm about 190 now, so this is doable, but it's going to take work. There are some related goals here, like cutting back my soda intake to one can per week (it's not *that* much higher than that now, but I need soda to disappear from my life and gradually is easier than all-at-once), going to the gym as often as possible, and getting at least eight hours of sleep a night. Some of them seem mountainous, as goals go, but I will work to get buy-in from coworkers and my roommate to try and keep me on-track.

2. ONLY ONE SINGING GROUP OR SHOW AT A TIME. This is going to be nearly as hard as (if not harder than) #1. I am a sucker; I say "yes" way too easily. But I have to remember that I get flustered when I'm doing more than one group at a time, and it means I end up not going to the gym enough, not taking care of myself, etc. I do enjoy it, so I'm not cutting it out completely, but it will take careful management to do #1, and this is part of it.

3. Take the GMAT and decide about business school. My new boss guy is actually helping here, because he really thinks I should go, so he's been nagging me about signing up for the GMAT. As anyone who knows me well will know, nagging (i.e. constant reminders) is one of the ways to get me to do things. I am still not 100% sold on the idea of going to business school, but I have some time -- applications to start school in the fall of '10 (i.e. class of '12) will be due in the fall of '09 -- and I should be able to figure it out by June so I can start working on applications. Part of this decision will be based on career trajectory, so we'll see what happens there.

4. Get laid. 'nuff said. Well, not exactly. I mean, I'd like what I've wanted for years -- a reasonably-attractive member of the same sex who's within a few years of my age who happens to like me back and isn't boring or crazy. Sounds easy, right? Right.

And that's a wrap. Seven concerts in a month. Not bad, if I do say so myself.

Now to all the things I put by the wayside during concert season -- like writing, cooking, and the like. Still thinking hard about [livejournal.com profile] yuletide... and trying to assure myself that I can really get this done by Friday (because I have this horrible fear that the database is going to crash on Saturday, so I have to get it done early!). I will not default. I will not default. I will not default. ::mantras::

Reprint, now with bonus writing actions for myself:
W10: work, help A+J move
Th11: work, dress rehearsal
F12: work, concert
Sa13: help other!J move, 2 concerts

Su14: climbing, concert (attend, not sing), caroling, a little bit of work
M15: work, cookie-baking party, WRITE

W17: work, gym, WRITE
Th18: work, holiday party for work, WRITE + REVISE

ONE MORE WEEK. Holy crap.

I'm also wishing I could rant about some work stuff, but, you know, nondisclosure and whatnot. Sigh. Suffice it to say, my boss and her boss are being incredibly stupid about some things lately and it comes from not knowing our systems or the data nearly well enough, in addition to not understanding where my time goes. I feel like I keep, for lack of a better term, whining about work *at* work, and that's not the best recipe for success :-|


The weird thing, for me, about Folie À Deux is that it is immediately recognizable as a Fall Out Boy record. And part of that has to do with it being a lot like Infinity On High, but IOH wasn't all that much like From Under the Cork Tree, so, you know. I have only listened to the first half of FÀD, but I already knew Patrick's vocal tics and where he would take the melodies even before he got there. This is kind of weird, but also kind of comforting, like a really old comfortable t-shirt. Maybe some of the orchestration is new and different, but this is not a New And Different Fall Out Boy Record the way IOH was. Am I wrong?


Now is the time on Sprockets when we write [livejournal.com profile] yuletide.

a. My FRE is here! <33333333333

b. I was really, honestly trying to make a joke about having known [this] all along, and man wasn't it annoying that I kept having to explain it to women... but then I realized I would be run out of fandom WITH BURNING PITCHFORKS. So, yes. I hate to keep apologizing for my gender around here, but. Sigh.

c. Work? Really, really insane right now. I realize I keep saying the same thing, but honestly, I'm not sure how I'm managing to do everything that I'm doing. And the thing is, most of it is just random bullshit that people keep asking for and at some point I should just say "no", but I'm not that kind of person. Blah blah blah career developmentcakes.

d. Thinking about moving to the city. Yes, again. Logistics and whatnot need to be figured out first, though.

In related news, OMG WWDC TOMORROW. That + fiscal '09 planning = nobody sees much of me these days. I feel like I'm doing good work, but at the same time, my non-work activities have dropped-off significantly. I have two rehearsals a week, I play bridge (yes, bridge; yes, I am 80) on Wednesdays, I have friends over on Fridays, and I go rock climbing Sunday mornings. This is actually a fairly busy life, but it has taken me some time to get over that whole college thing of overextending oneself. I do miss performing more often, though.

FRE's boyfriend is here, for WWDC purposes, and FRE is flying in next weekend, so I will get to see her! I am not sure what this means for Thanksgiving (she came here for the last two Thanksgivings), but I am just happy to have my FRE around before her thesis locks her in a closet somewhere.

There is not enough Bob/Spencer. The universe should get on that for me.

I love my roommate about 80% of the time. 10% of the time she annoys me by leaving crap all over the living room, but I kind of resigned myself to that a while ago. Another 5% she's angsty or in tears, and I get annoyed, but I know how to deal with that, so it's not *so* bad. But the other 5% she gets even more hippy-dippy flower-child than normal and sings (in her high and breathy singing voice) and plays either guitar (badly) or ukulele (even worse) along with a whole variety of folk songs and Beatles tunes and some indie-pop, but she always picks *the* most annoying songs and I can hear her high, breathy voice and her high-sounding ukulele going "plink" in the other room and AIIIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE. Maybe it's time to start rethinking my living situation :-/

Um. In other news, I am fine. Work is work and I am trying to figure out how to break up with one of my singing groups. Over the weekend I made some rice with chicken stock and dill and lemon juice and it was lovely, almost risotto-like in its consistency. And then on Monday a bunch of us went to Santa Cruz for a cookout and I got some nice pictures. I think I'm getting the hang of my new camera, which is good because I leave for Alaska four weeks from Thursday.

This Friday my team is having a barbecue at my boss's boss's house, which, it turns out, is five blocks from my apartment. WEIRD. But it's partly to welcome my real boss back from maternity leave and partly to bid farewell to my temporary boss. And that same day I get to interview my first person; should be interesting! And then the following week I have my first one-on-one meeting with my real boss in... nearly five months. I will have a lot to tell her, including the fact that there are some shenanigans on my team currently in re: power games.

It is Tuesday and it feels like Thursday already. Oof.

Guys, I started this thing seven fucking years ago. SEVEN YEARS. Christ. I've privated everything before 2006, because I was really even more of a whiny, self-indulgent mess back then than I am now, but. SEVEN YEARS. Was I really nineteen? Wow.

I really do love you all (oh, except you, since you're a total bitch who wouldn't give me the time of day) and it has been a pretty awesome seven years.

1. Guys, I don't understand. Boobs are weird. So why would I want to see *more* of them...? (All of which is to say Open Source Boob Project WTF? Seriously, some people's kids...)

2. I got a mysterious t-shirt! It's [this] and a size too big for me. If this is from any of you lovely people, please own up! It didn't come with ANY indication of who sent it!

3. Tonight was apparently American Idol-does-Andrew Lloyd Webber, so, um. Kind of the apocalypse? Makes me SO glad I stopped watching two seasons ago.

One of the best things about being an adult is that if you find yourself wanting ice cream for dinner, you can have it. Yeah, you'll be working it off for the next week, but you can have it. AND I DID. (yum)

In other news, I have been reading stuff *voraciously*, to the point where I'll click a link and can't always remember whether or not I've read it. [livejournal.com profile] bandom_recs, I loooooove you. And you know, I keep thinking about these groups and how in most good stories I end up envying whomever winds up together at the end -- not just because they're together and I'm single, but also because they're *professional musicians* and they're doing what they love and making good money from it and, you know, having a damn good time (uh, mostly). And I have to remind myself every once in a while that I made a choice not to go to grad school for voice, not to make music my profession. It's easy to look at successful groups and get envious of them, but for most of them (I think Panic is the outlier here -- not that they didn't work for it, but they got signed and on a pretty big tour almost right out of the gate, IIRC), getting where they got took a fuck of a lot of work, lots of sleeping in vans and playing for audiences that were probably super-tiny at the beginning, and that's all stuff I'm just not willing to do. I like knowing where my next paycheck is coming from, having health insurance, having a bed and a shower and clean clothes every day. And while the whole "touring in vans" thing doesn't really apply in classical music, if I really tried I could probably get cast as a bit part in a national tour of some musical and there would be similarities. But it's a choice I made. And remembering that only a very small percentage of artists actually achieve the success of the groups we read and write about is something that I don't know if we are very good at -- I know I'm not.

So congrats, boys and girls, for making it where you have. I'll never be there, but it's fun to read about what we think might be going through your heads while you're at the top.

(as a tangential addendum: why the FUCK do I have rehearsal in the middle of nowhere on my BIRTHDAY?! this is NOT ON, world. grr.)

For the tl;dr crowd: bandslash makes me feel sixteen again; pretty pictures!; thinky thoughts on my relationship with LJ and LJ's role as enabler/inhibitor.

Lately, I've been reading a lot of bandslash and not much else. I've been systematically going through del.icio.us and looking for things that are tagged with pairings I like and then kind of wandering around the LJs and sites of the authors I like best. It's kind of cool; I feel like a fandom baby all over again, just devouring all I can and picking up bits and pieces of canon along the way. I've also been listening to The Black Parade and enjoying it more than I did several months ago when I first had a listen -- apparently Gerard's voice grew on me in the interim. It's also surprisingly good for the gym; most power-rock (or whatever you'd call them?) is fairly midtempo, but the beats in most of their songs are fast, which is very good for chugging along when your body keeps saying "STOP, PLEASE!". Also: Bob/Frank is kind of a happy place for me, and Mikey got DAMN hot when he lost the glasses. Less cute, but way hotter.

I have also been playing with my new camera! I took these last night: cut to spare your browsers )

So, you know, life is speeding along. I miss you guys; in some ways I wish my life hadn't become so busy, but in others I'm kind of glad that it has. At times in the past, LJ had been the majority of my social interaction outside of work and a couple of close friends, but LJ is a space where things can be blown out of proportion very easily. For example, if someone who posts a lot doesn't respond to you almost immediately, that can feel like a slap, when in fact it probably has something to do with that person being busy (doing things like posting!); similarly, the friending tendencies of people can be fickle at times, and if you suddenly find yourself defriended -- even if it's for perfectly legitimate reasons, like diverging interests -- that almost never goes down without some kind of hurt feelings. So while I really miss the tightness of the LJ community and the magnification power groupthink has on my levels of happiness related to fandom, I'm glad to be spread thinner if it minimizes the magnification of seeming social rejection. Much as LJ encourages fannish behavior, it also punishes the casual fan, at least in my experience. Or, hmm. Maybe that's not entirely accurate. Perhaps what I mean is: LJ makes it easy to be involved at a high frequency of involvement. At a lower frequency of involvement, it can function as a barrier, making those infrequently involved actually have to work much harder. I wonder if anybody's done any research on this question in social networks. All that said, I doubt I will stop reading fanfiction anytime soon, you know?

All of which is to say I feel like I've moved, and started at a new school: I've made new friends, but I still find myself wanting to spend time with my old ones. Life being what it is, though, my time ends up spent more with the new kids because they're always around; then I try to keep in contact with my old friends only to find they have new inside jokes and new stories and they're doing just fine without me, you know? And it's HARD to keep up with all those old friends, what with having all these classes and all the activities I did at the old school, only with these new kids...

SO. I have returned. What have you all been up to in the last, uh, six months? I'm kind of overwhelmed by the insane amount of posts that I will have obviously missed. I'm going to try to start with today and go forward; fill me in on anything I missed in the past?

I am currently battling some kind of weird sore throat / queasy stomach thing where neither problem is particularly pronounced, so I tend to forget about them until one of them flares up, and then they both start getting out of hand. Plan for tonight: chicken broth and crackers.

Going home for Christmas was nice; my uncle even came for most of the holiday, which was surprising given that his partner's family is in SoCal and with my grandmother no longer with us, he had no really strong tie to stay with us. But it was nice that he came; he and my mom still have a lot of Memée's stuff to go through. Books, mostly, and lots of correspondence. The woman was a letter-writing *fiend*. It was kind of weird that I didn't miss her as much as I thought I would -- side-effect of being on the opposite coast most of the time, I guess. I mean, it was still a little strange to sit where she usually sat at Christmas dinner, and to have only six of us at the table, instead of seven. But... I dunno. I guess being with the little bit of family I have somehow never managed to make me think about the bits of family that weren't there.

Working for an online retailer can suck during the holidays, but it was nice to have the discount: the brothers both got products my company makes, which they were happy about, and it ended up that I only had to work a little over the holiday, so I was happy too. My team came out well ahead of our plan for the quarter, so that means very good things for those of my colleagues who are paid for performance. The next month or so is also going to be rough, as we head into some announcements and then the run-up to Valentine's Day (another big promotion for us). The second half of February should be nice and slow.

I have a couple of auditions in the future, but that's the future; who cares about it right now? ;)

My sincerest apologies to everyone for my continued absence. The spirit is willing, but there are only so many hours in the day, and my new (ha! I started there NINE MONTHS AGO) job actually requires that I do work and not goof off on LJ all day, unlike my last job. Infinitely more rewarding, but infinitely less free time. Plus, you know, all those performance-y things that are STILL GOING ON. I thought I was done after the show closed before Thanksgiving, right? WRONG. Eesh.

My life between now and Christmas:
Today (Monday): work, a cappella gig
Tuesday: work, Alexander technique lesson, a cappella recording session
Wednesday: work, gym, social time with my roommate who I haven't seen in weeks
Thursday: work, a cappella rehearsal
Friday: work, a cappella concert
Saturday: holiday baking, caroling party
Sunday: prep for and execution of holiday party
Monday - Wednesday: work, gym, [insert tiny bit of free time here]
Thursday: work, gym, pack
Friday: fly back east
Saturday: Dad's birthday
Sunday: general family time, tree decoration, present-wrapping, etc.
Monday: Christmas Eve
Tuesday: Christmas Day

Presumably when I get back here after my annual Christmas pilgrimage to the homeland (er... where my parents live) I will be less busy, but I have now begun postponing get-togethers until early January, so...

That said, there have been some majorly excellent things in my life recently. Thanksgiving was a smash hit. Work has been extremely busy but continues to be rewarding professional and personally -- our new analyst is this hilarious girl who I get along awesomely with and we've been making some good structural changes to how things are reported as well as managing expectations about what can and cannot be determined using our existing systems -- it's like a great big jigsaw puzzle. I get to go to the gym again! My out-of-town friends were here and it was SO good to see them. I have a [Christmas tree] (yes, that's the picture from last year, but this year's tree looks eerily almost exactly the same). My roommate and I have been watching Project Runway. My a cappella group has been wonderfully supportive of my external endeavors (i.e. the three shows I did in eight months) and welcomed me back with open arms. I think the only thing missing right now is a boy, but that's been the case before and I didn't keel over and die. So, you know, we'll see how things go, and after the first of the year I will attempt to leverage friends' connections (including my ex's) to start going on dates.

To all of you who celebrate something around this time of year, may it be a good and peaceful time for you. To [livejournal.com profile] dine, who sent me a holiday card: thank you! I always enjoy mail from you, and this one was no exception. To those of you who have long awaited my return, patience! Soon, grasshopper. To everyone who is writing for [livejournal.com profile] yuletide, yay! I will enjoy your stories all the more for the happy accident that meant I didn't have to write one at this insane time of year. And finally, to all those of you who enjoy cheesy "Frosty the Snowman"-type Christmas carols, I will send my minions to destroy you. And then maybe I'd get these godforsaken jingles out of my head! Gah. How weird is it that I only like the religious carols? They have such better melodies! And some of them are even modal!

Things what have happened since I last updated:

* I got together with J for Sekrit Recording Projekt part the second, then had dinner with The Ex, then had to go back to J's because he'd had a setting wrong with the mic or something and everything I recorded sounded like ass
* lemon pound cake is in the oven

I'm downloading s2 of Project Catwalk because I'm chomping at the bit in re: Project Runway s4. Please, please let it not suck. (Both of them, really, but PRs4 more than PCs2)

So this weekend was wonderful except for two things: mild sunburn (seriously, I was outside for like, half an hour, tops. why can't I be Mediterranean olive instead of this ruddy cheerful German/Irish boozehound color?) and a head cold. I've been slugging back water nonstop for *days* now, but I feel constantly dehydrated, and I think I need a bath in a tub full of aloe and skin moisturizer. Ugh.

In somewhat happier news, I got email that a friend of mine passed on from a singer friend of his looking for people interested in having a sing-through of "Into The Woods" this summer. Sweet! I'm hoping she lets me sing Jack -- not that I couldn't sing the baker or Rapunzel's prince, but Jack is really more my voice part.

I'm trying to get up the guts to just go ahead and message these two guys on okcupid. What can it hurt? I dunno. I'm just... I prefer to be gone after, not to do the going-after, you know? Of course, when I got my weekly "these are your best matches" email from match.com, my ex was at the top of the list. Heh. "100% compatable" -- RIGHT.

So this is the weekend of putting my life back together. Last week nearly everything that could go wrong did, with a couple of notable exceptions. I eventually got to work, put in some time, and didn't have *everything* blow up in my face, but there were a lot of speedbumps. Now Roommate E has shuffled off to the east coast for a month and a half, and I am left in ye olde apartment. I cannot tell you all how good it feels to be home.

The plan for tomorrow:
* recycling center
* library
* farmer's market
* grocery store
* vacuuming
* make something nice for dinner that will last a couple extra days

I am also really looking forward to hitting the gym on Monday. Exercise, w00t!

In other news, next weekend I'm going to a Fall Out Boy concert with some LJers. I was going to say that I may be trampled alive, but then I remembered that scene/emo boys are twigs in girl jeans I can lift with my little finger. Still, this will be An Experience, that's for sure.

Hi everybody; I'm back! (now with real uninterrupted internet access!) There may be some Europe pictures, but not until I've had a chance to edit them.

So, if I told you I was auditioning for another show, one that starts rehearsals while I'm in Italy (and thus I would hit the ground running when I returned), you'd think I was insane, right?


But! Gay Cinderella story! I'm meeting the director tomorrow for a reading/singing, since he's cast most of the show already but is still looking for one of the leads. I already know all the upsides and downsides of being cast; fortunately, that's not a decision I have in front of me yet.

How are YOU, friendslist? I heard there was an, um, [spoiler] Heroes finale (my new boss is a Heroes fanatic). I also heard some rumors about that scary show. You know, the one with the brothers and the car and the demons and whatnot? Yeah.

Things Wot I Have Done Since We Last Spoke:
* Went on date. It was non-horrible, but gave guy "let's be friends" line. He seemed okay with it.
* Went to the gym yesterday! O, it was rapturous. And I'm not just talking about the eye candy.
* Worked 392846365 hours. Whatever, that's what it feels like. Lo, I am crush'd.
* Cooked actual dinner with real (newly-)dead vegetables for the first time in quite a while.
* Wrote back to director guy about this play thingy.
* Not revealed remix authors, because I am a bad person (that's coming tonight).
* Thought about beta-ing for [livejournal.com profile] phaballa. No, really. No, REALLY. Shut up; I mean it.

Things I Have Yet To Do:
* Reveal remix authors.
* Beta for [livejournal.com profile] phaballa.
* Read more of JPod, Douglas Coupland's newest (I think), which was my birthday present from FRE. Decided to save this for the plane rides back East.
* Ship FRE's birthday present ASAP so it gets to her before she leaves the country.
* Berate the US Postal Service for not being open later in the day.
* Some other stuff I'm not remembering now.
* Learn Italian.

Because I am congenitally insane, I auditioned for another show last night. Fortunately (?) I wasn't called back, probably because I'm going to be out of the country for two solid weeks of the rehearsal schedule.

In other news, when this show closes, I have two weeks until I leave for Italy. Wow. My life has gotten interesting all of a sudden!

Note to self: stop eating. You will put on 25 pounds in Italy from the gelato alone, and you have to be able to at least fit in your shorts.
Note to self #2: buy lightweight long pants to wear in Italian churches, some of which don't allow shorts.

Three days of no talking ends tomorrow. Thank merciful whomever. It has taken more discipline than I knew I had, frankly, but I'm glad to know that when pressed, I can do that.

Today kind of sucked as a birthday -- the cue-to-cue ended up being about 10 hours long, with me on my feet most of that time. The only really good thing about it is that it's now DONE and we can start with dress rehearsals: mics + costumes + wigs + props tomorow; makeup Tuesday, I think; more stuff Wednesday; final on Thursday; previews Friday; opening night Saturday; holy SHIT this is going to be a long week. Anyway, as to the whole birthday shennaniganation, it was mostly postponed due to laryngitis, so I call do-over, and I'll have my birthday next weekend. That's legal, right?

I have a boatload of email and comments to return, and I will get to that as soon as I can, but know that this week is going to be CRAZYPANTS and while I love you all, my sleep, my health, and my sanity are a wee bit higher on the priority list at the moment. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
