21 from II i:

As per usual, feedback is love, comment/take/credit.

It may seem like an odd time to bring it up, but since I'm writing about it right now, I'd like to acknowledge the courage and inspiration of the crew of the USS Challenger, killed January 28, 1986 73 seconds after liftoff. My grandmother was a finalist to be the elementary school teacher aboard the final flight of Challenger. I don't have much to say, but I felt like it needed to be mentioned.

Okay, this is the "I need Goth music and the internets are failing me" post.

I'm looking specifically for Bauhaus. And the Cure. And New Order and Danse Society and Sisters of Mercy and UK Decay and Christian Death. Tell me what you've got!

::edit:: 8:23pm
In the continuing tradition of "People Are Stupid", I requested a book through interlibrary loan. I gave them lots of detail, right down to the ISBN of the book I wanted. They ignored everything but the title and thus sent me entirely the wrong book. *Pouts* People are stupid.

Oberon won't let me upload the BRAND NEW SHINY costume sketches that I have. They are so pretty! I did little glee dances all the way home and now I can't share them. Poot.

In other news...

There is no other news. I am newsless. Well, my brother is having his wisdom teeth out on Friday, but they know from my experiences what to do and what not to do, so that'll probably go pretty smoothly, for a surgery. My baby brother's first time under general anaesthesia...Awwwww...

Whee! Study guide meeting went very well. Everyone adored my first draft, so I'm basically done there, now I need to load it onto Oberon, which will probably involve more formatting than I really want to deal with.
Now I'm sitting in the Theatre Office chatting with my wife and waiting for my costuming meeting.

Have now completed a fifteen-page study guide for Fourth and Fifth graders on Midsummer.

Am going to try the sleeping thing again.
bardic_lady: (shakespeare)
*Sigh of relief*

Did a mockup cover for the study guide, polished my Shakespeare bio, and wrote up a play summary and a bit on the Globe Theatre. That should cover my bases for tomorrow. Now I can go back to happily rooting through history...
bardic_lady: (midsummer - ill met)

Thank goodness Geoff reminded me that I have a meeting tomorrow about study guides with Morlie and Lori or I would have ended up really embarrassed. On the other hand, now I have to put together some kickass materials for tomorrow's meeting.

Also, I now have an outline of my conference presentation, so now I need to flesh it out with my own notes and what have you.
bardic_lady: (midsummer - doves)
Oh the insanity...

It ought be noted, for the sake of giggles, that the tale of Theseus includes a Hell pig, a man-eating turtle, kidnappings, wife-swapping, and pirates.

P.S. It's amusing (to me) how, when your finger slips. "Ares" becomes "Arses".

Okay. I turned off the lights at 1am. I think I fell asleep around 4, which is still four hours earlier than Saturday night. I woke up at 10:42, 11:30, and 3:40. Same deal tonight, I AM going to reset my sleep schedule to something closer to the norm before the conference. I have to. Got up and went marketing, I now have many beverages and lots of fruit. I spent about twice as much on produce as I did on entrees and beverages...*sigh* I have a BBQ beef sandwich to nibble on all evening. I took my shower. The goal for tonight is to get Theseus done, and Hippolyta if I can swing it. I also want to put together a recommended movies and maybe books list. I meet with Geoff tomorrow for acts II and III. My plan is to talk conference presentation. I want to get all the cuts and punctuation set by conference and at least the first couple acts marked up with links and pictures and stuff. Less than two weeks, guys...I want to knock their socks off.
bardic_lady: (midsummer - doves)
There is really very little funnier than Greek myth. I'm working on Midsummer background information, starting with the story of Theseus. The boy is 16 and I'm already at multiple children and the giant pig of the Underworld...Once again, you can find all my wackiness at Oberon...
bardic_lady: (midsummer - take pains)
Well done, me. Managed to get through punctuating Act III in under four hours, which makes me readyish for my meeting on Tuesday. I do want to get some of my other notes done as well, though. *Swearing* Two weeks from now, I'll be back in Washington after the conference. Aiiieee. I think I shall reward my good work with wacky fun tv. Maybe Twitch City. Or Due South. Or Slings & Arrows. Or Nero Wolfe...
bardic_lady: (Default)
11 on a theme. If anyone wants to see other people represented in this collection, let me know...
bardic_lady: (midsummer - ill met)
Another day, another meeting with Geoff. Went fairly well, we added some more cuts and set up another meeting for next week. I also got some possible poster graphics to play with...

My two Weird Al CDs (Weird Al Yankovic and Weird Al in 3-D) and Jersey Boys showed up today. I really like Jersey Boys, but I think that has a lot to do with the fact that I liked the music before and very little to do with the actual show. Which is why I still think Drowsy Chaperone should have won the Tony.

Before you ask, no, I'm neither eating nor sleeping well. Oops.


It's weird that at the moment the Four Seasons' "Who Loves You" makes me a little teary.

Fourteen from Midsummer Act II, scene i, lines 1-64:

Comment, take, credit.
bardic_lady: (midsummer - doves)
Midsummer icons, Act I scene ii.

Yours for the ganking, comment and credit, s'il-vous plait...
bardic_lady: (glinda after wicked)
Ah, everyday annoyances...

My housemate apparently came home, had sex with his ex-girlfriend (the bathroom is right next to his room and they were...not very quiet), cooked a large pizza and ate about a quarter of it, leaving the rest out on the counter to rot, watched part of a movie and then got up and left the house with the movie still running. WTF?

Longish meeting with Geoff, Jac, and the people who write University brochures and are in charge of guest artists and stuff. Apparently part of my scholarships next year is to be "dramaturg" for all the visiting artists, of whom there are about 15. Whee.

Worried about the mouses, they're hardly drinking any water and it's rather warm for small furry creatures not to be consuming liquids...
bardic_lady: (masks)
And she returns, as from a voyage rich with merchandise!

Meeting with Geoff went very well, he's pleased with the glossary and now I have new assignments. Went to the library and picked up 1950's lesbian pulp fiction for fun reading. It's about 90 here so I'm holding off the mouse feeding run until it cools off a bit, maybe 7 or 8 tonight.
bardic_lady: (shakespeare lives)
One last entry for today.

Midsummer gloss is DONE! YES! *happy dance of dramaturgy*

Now I can actually play with research and shit!

Gonna go watch 4400 now and eat shortcake.

OMG SQUEE! OIS hath writ me a brand new and snazzy wiki extension to do what I want and it works and and and and...SQUEE!!!

(Never thought I'd say this) *loves on OIS*

January 2015



I Cannot Hide What I Am

I must be sad when I have cause and smile
at no man's jests, eat when I have stomach and wait
for no man's leisure, sleep when I am drowsy and
tend on no man's business, laugh when I am merry and
claw no man in his humour...
I had rather be a canker in a hedge than a rose in
his grace, and it better fits my blood to be
disdained of all than to fashion a carriage to rob
love from any: in this, though I cannot be said to
be a flattering honest man, it must not be denied
but I am a plain-dealing villain. I am trusted with
a muzzle and enfranchised with a clog; therefore I
have decreed not to sing in my cage. If I had my
mouth, I would bite; if I had my liberty, I would do
my liking: in the meantime let me be that I am and
seek not to alter me.
