Instead, since I haven't done a 'life update' lately, I can do one of those instead. All in agreement? Yes? Then onward!
The cats know that it's going to be a tough winter. Even Gooky has been acting extra-nice in an attempt to get inside.
Tonight is also when a semi-legendary football game is to be played in our town. Since I have no interest whatsoever in football or its ilk I have plans to stay home and watch WALL-E.
WALL-E trumps football ANY day of the week. XD
Cookies are goooood, man.
The cookies, unfortunately, are not for us...they are for Will and his marching band tonight (they're playing for the football game). But that doesn't mean that I can't snitch the occasional glob of dough or cull out the imperfect cookies.
Absolutely decadent mac-and-cheese on steroids. Or something. I was starving this morning/afternoon and couldn't find anything prepared to eat, and my other choices were beef ramen and oranges. So I made this.
I should get hungry with nothing cooked in the house more often. XD
These all have differing materials/amounts of certain materials in them, so from left to right: (1) mostly paper with a tiny bit of denim; (2) all denim, roughly blended; (3) all denim, finely blended; (4) equal amounts denim and paper with a handful of grass tossed in for color.
I'm not sure how much I like the grass one--it smells very grassy, and not pleasantly so. I really like the finely blended denim, but it takes about 5 solid minutes of pulsing in the blender to get it that smooth. The paper with a tiny bit of denim is the best as far as texture/thickness/color goes...I dunno. This is only my second batch, so I have plenty of time to experiment.
So today I saw a guy at Walmart that looked freakily like M. He was parked two places away from me and followed me into the store--I was going to take a good look before going into the store, but when I glanced at him he gave me this funny look and I looked away.
I didn't see him after entering the store, but for the next couple of hours (even while driving home) I kept looking over my shoulder, feeling like M was there watching me. I'm sure it's all mental...but it feels like the guy has been haunting me lately. Which is weird, because I haven't seen him all summer.
I'm...not sure what the point of that little digression was. Isn't it weird, though, how another person can totally forget that you exist, and you're still thinking about them occasionally? It's such a peculiar feeling...
Tomorrow is the Renne Faire...it's a couple of towns over, and the first one we've had in this area. As a result, it's very small, will only span two days, and is free of admission. Mwee hee hee.
I was asked to be in a pirate skit, so I'm in two showings for that...Saturday morning and Sunday afternoon, to be exact. I'm going to get a friend to film the skit, (a) because I have no idea what we look like onstage, and (b) I MIGHT put it up here. Maybe. If we're good. XD I have speaking parts for a role that was originally meant for a guy, so I can't vouch for how great I'll be. *shrug*
I was also asked to be a vendor, and I seriously thought about it (mostly because as a performer I wouldn't be charged to have a booth). But I don't have very many items, so that idea is out. Maybe next year, right?
And...I guess that's about it for life-related updates. Unless I forgot something. (That's a valid concern around here.) I'm going to assume that this is good for now...happy October 1st! There's only one October 1st, 2010, so make it a good one!
