Right, so I should do an actual update and not just posting quiz results. Life's been hectic. School and work and Fake Mustache goodness. The show was last Thursday, and it was amazing! There wasn't a show in January, because it's always a bad idea. Everyone's either away or too busy recovering from New Year's to want to do anything. We had a pretty good crowd out, and some pretty fantastic numbers.

And I pulled a cucumber out of my pants and harassed people with it. Video to come! I'll probably also post a link to Tommy Velveeta's late show number, because it made me laugh so hard I cried. I love that man. There are over 300 videos on our youtube page now. Most of which are on my computer. It's just insane. But awesome, because I can put them on Bowie III to watch whilst stuck in transit. There's nothing like watching Roy take a flogger out of his pants on your mp3 player surrounded by commuters to start your day off on the right foot. Just sayin'.

Last night was Trevor's party to celebrate the fact that his surgery is done. I missed most of the dinner part of the evening due to work, but I got there in time to grab some yam fries and say hello to the people who weren't coming dancing with us afterwards. Then we went off to the gay bar, watched some drag queens, and danced and drank until about one in the morning. We hung out  at Bree's place until about four, talking and being stupid and generally acting like a bunch of half-drunk over-tired fools. It was grand.

I got a ride home from Sherina, and slept until 12:30. I've done quite a bit today despite that. I've cleaned the kitchen, so now I can cook in it without feeling disgusting. Also uploaded most of the videos from Thursday, pictures into my Flickr account, and I'm currently cooking a red lentil soup with coconut milk and spices that smells wondrous.

I'm going to go eat some now, I think. I'm so hungry I feel shaky and weak.

Oh. Em. Gee. Life has been so crazy! It was midterms this week, which I managed to survive. Barely. I couldn't finish my hollow construction for jewellery. Apparently I am made of fail, so much that Sarabeth (the instructor) wants to coach me outside of class on soldering. When we can find the time. Of course, the one thing that I successfully soldered was not a class piece. It was a Christmas present. Still, it's shiny.

Everything else is going pretty well. Or at least going. Still at Home Depot. Community never called me back, so I guess I'm staying at HD for now. I might transfer stores as soon as I'm no longer a temp; the one-hour commute to work is so not worth it.

Good things that have happened:
  • Thanksgiving. Went to Lyn and Bree's for food. Lots and lots and lots of food. Everyone loved the cookies I made, and we all stuffed ourselves silly. It was awesome.
  • My cold is gone. Hurrah!
  • I went to go see Where the Wild Things Are with Kait. We dressed up as Wild Things, which was amusing and cute. I need to post pictures. The movie was really good, too. Strange, though. Not what I expected, if I'd even known what to expect from a movie based on a ten-sentence (or something) book.
  • I have a bus-pass again. Hurrah!
  • I have new glasses!
All of that, plus I got over ten hours of sleep last night. And all I had to do today was work on my drawing project, which didn't take as long as I thought it would. So I had time to take a nap and do baking. Now I have bread and muffins of Awesome. (Double chocolate with orange-flavoured dried cranberries. Oh yes).

Halloween is in less than a week! And the dance! Eee!

whee!

So the show last Thursday was awesome. There were lots of people there, and the numbers were wicked. So much fun! I decided not to go to Denny's afterward and go home instead.

Not much exciting is happening, really. I've been spending almost all of my free time doing schoolwork. Soul Patch isn't doing anything in the November show (because we need to do Thriller at Rocky Horror, which I'm probably not going to). Which means there aren't any drag practices to worry about. It's sort of good and yet the socializing was kind of nice too. Not being on the board is so liberating, though. No regrets there.

I went to go see Glenn yesterday for the first time in months. And it was really cool. I filled out a survey when I got there about what I wanted help with (ie housing, work, mental health stuff). And there's nothing, really. Even with being completely stressed out, I'm still managing to handle everything. A year ago I still wasn't doing that well, honestly, but now I'm fine.

Pretty cool, actually.

And I think transitioning has a lot to do with it. It's just this weight off of my mind:  I don't have to worry about whether I'll regret it or not, even though I think I always knew that it was something I wanted to do. I'm just so much happier now.

I lost my bus-pass today, which is annoying. Stupid bus-driver bitched at me for taking too long, too. Not a great start to the day. Meh. Hoping I can get a new student ID from school before the day's out. I really need to go run errands now.

Life's been pretty quiet recently. Which is kind of nice. The end of school was uneventful, although I stressed myself out learning dates for my AHIS final when I apparently didn't need to. English was an open-book exam. Easy A+. This semester has done wonders for my GPA. I got an A+ in Art History, an A in English and a B+ in Fibre and Mixed Media. Clearly the best semester ever. Except that part where I ended up being late for my final Fibre crit, which was sort of embarassing.
Kait's birthday party was Friday. Omg Wolverine! GLEE! And then tea at Oolong, and Twisted dancing. I was about to fall over by the end of the night, but it was awesome.
I don't get living expenses now that school is done, which makes a lot of sense, but makes me really need a job right away. My plan is to work my ass off for a couple of months and then take August off. Travel and such. Kait and I might fly down to Vancouver for Vancouver Pride to visit Trevor (and Sasha and Connor), which would be awesome. And then there's Camp Fyrefly, which I need to remember to apply to, and my cousin James' wedding at the end of the month. And I just want time off to relax and do nothing, without starving to death. That would be nice.
MYN is going crazy (in a mostly good way). The Laramie Project performances are the fourteenth to sixteenth, and there's a lot of panic going on about that. People in Calgary at that time really need to go see this play. I saw the first act after the board meeting yesterday and nearly cried. It was so amazing. And that was without the lights or proper stage or anything. And we're also hosting a youth dance in June, which I volunteered to help run. My first time organizing something, really. It's pretty exciting. I'm running it with Jen and Laura, so I'm expecting everything to go as smoothly as they can. Because we are awesome and are going to attack the whole thing with lists and spreadsheets. (Exel! Yay!)
Anyway, I'm off to make posters and write lists. Oh lists.

Blarg!

Last weekend was pretty good. Saturday was Angels and Demons Carnival, which as far as I know was the last fundraiser for Laramie. Dunno. I was there just after two to help out with decorations and setting up, which was cool but made for a really long day. Up and down ladders for a couple hours, and I really don't like ladders. It ended up looking really freaking cool, though.
It was a little cool and windy for the carnival games. I didn't do any - I have very limited spending cash for the rest of the month (and the beginning of May) and then I had to eat and get into costume. Still, it looked like the wind and the not-warmth didn't stop anyone from participating, and the fire-spinner looked really awesome. The show was amazing, of course. I performed the mime number to great applause. Everyone seems to love that one. *shrugs* It was fun. I'd still have to say my favourite number was Cian performing 'Gasolina' in drag, and belly-dancing along with the belly-dancers (who weren't in drag). Videos here.
Spend Sunday doing nothing. It was nice. I've finished both my final exams, which both went fantastically. Although I didn't need to spend all that time memorizing the dates, but whatever. All I've left is the final crit for Fibre tomorrow and then I am done! It's marvelously relieving. I'm going to spend the rest of the week sleeping. And by sleeping I mean going to see Dr. J again, and then baking and generally preparing for the this weekend. I have two birthday parties, the Comic Expo, and a concert. It's going to be insane. Awesome, but insane.
Gah, I'm tired. Going to bed now.

I have new library books. This makes me happy.

Been busy. Not really with as much school stuff as I ought, though. Finals are next week and I've barely started studying. Still, I'm not too worried about them, which is almost downright bizarre. Last term was the first term where I managed to not have some sort of nervous breakdown at the end of term (or the middle of midterms, depending). I'm glad I could keep it up for this term as well.

My Dr. Horrible costume is pretty much done. In about a week and a half, because I'm crazy. I'm sure I'll have pictures of it eventually so I can show off. It's pretty good, considering how long it took and how I didn't want to spend much more than $100 on the whole thing. Personally, I'd rather it was completely accurate, but I realize that wasn't about to happen. It still looks pretty darn neat, and the bubble gun works! Yay bubbles! I was going to go to the midnight showing of Dr. Horrible and 'Once More with Feeling' but I don't know if I will anymore. There's no-one I really know that's going, and I really ought to start studying for my finals.

Plus I want to bake cupcakes. I mean, really.

The weather's been absolutely fantastic. I hung out with Jess and Taz and a bunch of their friends yesterday at Prince's Island. We threw around a frisbee until Jess fell into a puddle (which was hilarious!) and then decided she was too cold to play anymore. It's warm, but not that warm. I cleaned up the garden today, which was nice. Quite a few of the plants are coming in already, probably because they were sheltered by the massive piles of leaves on top of them. I'm just glad to see green again.

I'm also hanging with Kait on Thursday (glee), and I want to drag Trevor to a movie or something. Perhaps Coraline. We'll see. It looks interesting, and I'm always a fan of stop-motion animation.

The next couple of months are going to be insane.

So...

I'm now to stop eating all milk products entirely, doctor's orders. *sigh* I need to get bloodwork done sometime this week, which is rather unexciting.

The show on Thursday went spectacularly well. I left really early, because if I don't I have this tendency to miss all of my buses and get stuck in a traffic jam. So I ended up being there at quarter to six, or something disgusting like that. Seriously. I was there before Kait, which has to say something. Seeing Eric dressed up like a girl did weird things to my brain, and not necessarily in a good way, though it was very amusing. There were so many kings there. I remember in November, when I would go in the back to avoid having to watch Certain People doing their ever so touching love songs (puke), there would only be, like, one person backstage. It was always super crowded this time. Red showed up and watched for the first time in ever, but Tracy didn't make it. *sadface*

I'm already practicing for next show. *is obsessed*

Friday I had class, which was...normal in that it was abnormal. I'm getting my essay back Tuesday, hope I did ok. *crosses fingers* Then I ran off to Laura's house to learn how to be a secretary and had lots of tea. That evening I went swing dancing for the first time in months, this time with Sasha instead of Jen. Oh swing dancing, how I've missed you. Robert said I was still a good dancer, which was super nice of him. xD I still have this huge crush on him.

I spent most of yesterday finishing Red's present, a Slytherin scarf, because he is evil and obsessed with Harry Potter. ha. It was amusing. I managed to not get drunk (mostly by not drinking), since today's my first day as step-in secretary and I figure I shouldn't have a hangover for it. Lots of people there, most of whom I didn't know. And boobies and bad jokes about eating meat thanks to me asking for a cheeseless pizza. Parties with my friends are always so...interesting. xD

I really, really need to go grocery shopping at some point. I'm completely out of bread and milk (lactose-free!), and almost out of eggs. And I want to visit Trevor today, or soon. Also, I need to go get supplies for my next fibre project before class, and find some time to clean my house, because it's getting kind of gross.

I need another day off.

I had a dream last night about living in a post-apocalyptic city that was destroyed by these giant, super-intelligent worms that either had guns or were, somehow, part robot or something. I'd been staying in some sort of safe area, but we had to leave it for some reason, so we got on this train that had artificial intelligence to go to another safe area outside of the city. We were just leaving the safe area when there was this huge explosion, and we realized that the worms had blown up part of the train, which fixed itself, but we had to leave the blown-up car behind, with all the dead people still in it. Then we saw this sign that said something along the lines of  ' We will stop you from going to Tui - Rainbow.' Tui, being the country-side, I suppose, and Rainbow being the name of the worms. There was a lot of 'ohgod we're all going to die!' in the train, but we managed to get out of the city, and were going to look for these giant birds that were going to eat the worms and thus save the world. Then I woke up. It was bizarre.

The tuition scare was a false alarm. They sent me the letter before they switched my status over to 'sponsored student.' So everything is good, and I can buy groceries and stop panicking about my bank account.

What is it with Fridays? There are four things going on, that I know of. I'm going to try to go to two of them (RHPS at school, and then the farewell-to-Niq's-tits party), but we'll see how it goes. Is it still bad that I miss Trevor after not seeing him for half a week? I'm looking forward to this weekend so much, especially because my English paper will be done by that point. I should be working on it right now. Ahaha. Yay procrastination!

(Well, actually, I'm waiting for supper to be ready, and then I'll start working on it. Only five hundred words. I'm probably not as nervous as I ought to be.)

(I'd rather be watching Torchwood. >.>)

I got my laptop yesterday. Hurrah! And, despite Trevor's being convinced that they would make me a mistake and send me a pink one, it's green. And awesome. I'm pleased. Now I just need to transfer my bookmarks over to it, at some point, and I'll be set.

Crazy weekend coming up. I've got Lacy's party on Friday, Trevor's party on Saturday, and Laura's baby shower on Sunday. O.o I'm glad I don't have a lot of schoolwork yet.
