Rocky Horror Review

little leaf
Saw a stage version of The Rocky Horror Picture Show last night. OMG, it was so much fun! All of the actors did a good job of making the iconic roles their own, and the audience participation actually really added something to it instead of distracting from it. The Criminologist even made a jab at Gov Good Hair running for president again that had the audience rolling in their seats!

And there was something cathartic about throwing toilet paper, confetti, and playing cards and watching the stage crew clean it up after spending the last 3 years cleaning up after B...Squirting other audiences members with water guns was also fun. Some people liked to throw things, others liked to dance. I'll sing until the cows come home but there is no way I'm dancing. I don't even know my left from my right for starters....

thrill you, chill you, and fulfill you.Collapse )
Life has been rough lately. Every child care support system we've had in place has fallen through this year, and these past few months it seems like we've been scrambling from one thing to another. And while things are going real well for me professionally, I'm seeing/hearing more and more disturbing things from clients that are disturbing and disheartening.

Let's just say faith in human goodness and the ability to rise above circumstances is being challenged hard right now. And that's a pillar stone of my belief system.

Anyway, at least it's Halloween. I got a pumpkin decorating kit to do with B and we had a blast with it! He even carried around the pumpkin with him everywhere he went that afternoon, though all the stickers fell off. We'll just have to get another one! Anyway, pics below.

Two Sentence Horror Stories

Saw this today, and loved it! Here's my two sentence horror story below the cut.

boo!Collapse )

Anyone want to leave me a spine tingler?

Things Change

I'm going back to work full time mid-October. First there was the excitement and back patting, relief that I would be able to space clients on my over packed schedule less densely. Then there was the worries of OMG, less time with my kids! Will it warp them for life!?

G is a bit younger than B was when I went to work full time, which adds to the anxieties. At the same time, I know I'm lucky to have been able to cut back to part time till I got her to the 6 month mark and was able to easily get my full time slot back. I was fine with it all until I learned that my dad might not be able to watch them much longer (a whole big mess of a situation in and off itself), which adds a whole new level of complexity to it, especially with getting B to and from his therapy appointments. And leaving her in daycare for so long when she is so young makes me nervous.

So a mix of good and bad and a nebulous feeling that things are about to get a helluva a lot harder.

Horror Movies

Is it Halloween time already!? So excited for G's first Halloween! Can't wait for the weekend! Got plans to find costumes, go to the pumpkin patch, turn my garden into a graveyard...

I've not gotten a terrible amount of scary movie watching in this year, but there were a few movies/shows. Nothing that's become my new favorite thing though. Most was rather bland. There may be spoilers below.

For the first novel as well as information about how I organized this and the purpose behind it.

There was a lot of interest to analyze in this novel! So grab your favorite drink and a bowl of popcorn, because this is long! Read on to find out how long! So long that I've had to divide it into two parts! And it is thanks to amildcaseofraughnatrushavna that we have this translation!

Part 2

Good Things

After a hellacious Weds and Thurs and a Friday made hard by lack of sleep (I like my sleep), things have settled down. AC is still broken but it's bearable with all the windows open and fans going full tilt. And some good things have happened.

1. I got a raise! Got a letter Saturday telling me I had a raise. Strange way to get the news, but I won't complain. After Weds and Thurs I damn well deserved it!

2. Emma Watson! Emma Watson! Emma Watson! Such a role model for both G and B! We spend so much time on child celebrities who went "bad" I'm glad to see some attention paid to her and the incredible work she is doing!

3. Rejected Princesses! I am LOVING this site! I about fell out of my seat laughing while reading about Corn Maiden. Also learning a lot.

4. Googling "people having a worse day than you" is always good for a much needed laugh...even if I feel like a horrible person for laughing.

5. Earlier today, B and G were watching "The Laurie Berkner Band." G was in her bouncer and Andy started dancing and she just started bouncing and "dancing" with him. Then B. grabbed this small drum we had left out (um, yes, we just have random musical instruments lying around the house, because we like music) and started drumming with one of the songs. I have the cutest kiddos.
