Just put me in the car and drive so far…

Head still hurts, but I’m waiting for my Tuesday evening class to start, so I am bored.

Last week was much busier than I had anticipated, hence my general absence. I had rehearsals Monday, Wednesday and Friday nights, and I spent all of Saturday at the theatre for tech rehearsals and the play itself. I think it went pretty well; Mom and her girlfriends liked it, and the Boychik and Dante seemed to like it well enough.

School is getting tougher; I mentioned earlier that finals are only a few weeks away. This is a great thing because it means that soon enough I’ll be out of class for about three and a half months. It’s less great because it means finals are coming. eugh.

Power that can smash even the souls of the gods…

So I didn’t get a post up yesterday. I know. I’m sorry. To be fair, yesterday was painful and involved little down-time. My shoulder is killing me, and I am finally getting over a nasty allergic flare-up. Today’s a bit better… less sniffling and coughing on my part and therefore less shoulder pain. Still, I am at work. That’s not a terribly bad thing… Fridays are pretty quiet, and I generally LIKE my job. I just have a whole list of things I’d really rather be doing. For example, today is a perfect lazy day. It’s getting darker out… a storm’s on the way in, I hear. I would love to be at home, in bed or curled up on the couch, and playing WoW.

After work, I’m thinking I’m heading over to Dante’s for a little bit to watch some anime. It’s weird to write that… I’ve been out of anime for years. But Dante made the mistake of buying me the box set of my favorite season of my favorite anime, and he decided he wanted to watch it…. And suddenly I’m back into my favorite shows. Slayers, Oh! My Goddess, Ranma 1/2… I was really into the anime and manga scene in middle school. I generally got out of it when I started high school, though I’ve always held onto that love for certain series. Slayers holds a special place in my heart. I told Dante about it one night, and, lo and behold, come Christmas… Slayers Next on DVD!

We finished watching it last night. He just ordered Slayers Try, which comes out in two weeks, and in the meantime he’s going to see the Oh! My Goddess movie, and we’ll probably start watching some Ranma. That, and working on WoW. I want another 70, and I know the Boychik is dying for a tank. We’ll see how much leveling we can get done this weekend.

A lazy Saturday.

So this morning was cool. Sister and I got up and went to the Fox for breakfast. It’s been a long time since the two of us did anything together, so it was nice to get out and chat. I got a massive waffle, and she got the pancakes, and it was all fantastic. The Fox is my absolute favorite greasy spoon diner ever. Their breakfast and their burgers are fantastic.

We also hit the tanning beds, me for the first time. I’ll be going a lot for a few weeks, since I have to wear white for the Vagina Monologues, and white on pasty white just doesn’t work so well. I’d rather not be blinding up on stage, you know?

I got some homework done this afternoon, but I think I am going to spend my evening playing World of Warcraft. It’s been about a week since the last time I logged on… far too long. I miss shooting things in the face, you know?
