I just read this joke aloud to [ profile] hakamadare, using the ramping-up technique that [ profile] herooftheage taught me. I started out with a level of 1 (the question), ramped up to a 3 with the beginning of the answer, and was screaming the end at a reasonable roar (my 9.5). Except that last bit, which was back down to a 2ish.

Q: How many women with PMS does it take to change a light bulb?

Woman's Answer: One! ONLY ONE!!!! And do you know WHY? Because no one else in this house knows HOW to change a light bulb! They don't even know that the bulb is BURNED OUT!! They would sit in the dark for THREE DAYS before they figured it out. And, once they figured it out, they wouldn't be able to find the #&%!* light bulbs despite the fact that they've been in the SAME CABINET for the past 17 YEARS! But if they did, by some miracle of God, actually find them, 2 DAYS LATER, the chair they dragged to stand on to change the STUPID light bulb would STILL BE IN THE SAME SPOT!!!!! AND UNDERNEATH IT WOULD BE THE WRAPPER THE FREAKING LIGHT BULBS CAME IN!!! BECAUSE NO ONE EVER PICKS UP OR CARRIES OUT THE GARBAGE!!!! IT'S A WONDER WE HAVEN'T ALL SUFFOCATEDFROM THE PILES OF GARBAGE THAT ARE A FOOT DEEP THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE HOUSE!! IT WOULD TAKE AN ARMY TO CLEAN THIS PLACE! AND DON'T EVEN GET ME STARTED ON WHO CHANGES THE TOILET PAPER ROLL !!!!!!

I'm sorry. What was the question?

Steve says this is my dramatic monologue, the next time I audition for a play. ;)

Wonderful [ profile] goldsquare gave me his boyhood dressers after all, so I have stopped scouring Craigslist. I was going to sand and refinish them today, but it's chilly and looking rain-like. We'll see. They are exactly what I was looking for, though, which makes me happy.

The house is still very much under construction. OMG. It will be an entirely new house by the time we're done. Y'all should come see it then. Not now. I should post pictures now, but don't have brain.

My inbox is back down to 900ish. This is awesome, and represents a bit of work. I know, I know, not done yet.

We do have a new housemate for the short-to-medium term, Kirsten. She's in her last semester at college. Seems to be going well so far, and that's saying something, given the stress the construction has added to our household.

[ profile] lightfixer might come over soon and finish setting up the music server. Then I might be able to upload all my new music from Falconridge and Campfire. I have so much good music to catch up on! Yay!

There was brunch this morning, sort of. It was nice, despite the construction dust factor. I think I hang out a lot with the Arisia geeks, lately. And I talk a lot about Arisia stuff. I swear, it's not my whole life. :P

I went to the Big Party yesterday. I swam, and hugged lots and lots and lots of people. Saw tons & tons of y'all. Then I left with [ profile] noeltheone to go see a drag king show in the evening. Which was also awesome. :)

Going backward, went to [ profile] naufiel and [ profile] mtolan's for Shabbat dinner Friday night. Fabulousness. We had some good geeking and some spectacular eating, and it was midnight before I realized it. Given how tiring my week was, that's saying a lot.

In general, I think I like being social again. I wish we could do it more at home, though. Soon!

(I ended up doing the Gerry Frikkin' Express monologue. 'Cause, how could I not?)

Now we go sleep! :)

I keep meaning to blog this before it escapes me.

While working on the Twelve Goddesses show, I was cast as the goddess Vesta. As in, vestal virgins. As in, ohmygodmylinesareaboutchastity!

[ profile] herooftheage (the director) said he was relieved to have me in the show because I would be willing to play this part. I am astonished he didn't burst out with an evil laugh as he said this to me. ;)

The actual lines I was supposed to deliver were, "Next Vesta, with her flames of zeal, presents herself clad in white purity. Her book the soul's sweet comfort doth reveal by the ever-burning lamp of piety." Show the audience the book (actually a copy of Dante from props mistresses [ profile] dreda and [ profile] rising_moon), get back into the line, go on with the show.

See, the scripted version of my lines was kinda a mouthful. And so I found myself tripping over it in rehearsal, the first couple of times. So it became "Next Vesta, with her flames of steel ..."

Which later became "Next Vesta, with her buns of steel .."

Thank God, I was able to deliver the actual intended lines during the performance. But [ profile] hakamadare and I had a lot of laughter (uncomfortable, on my part) over the idea that I would recite the wrong version in front of those 130 people at the event ...

I got home from the event yesterday at about 6 pm, and thought I'd just take a nap before going to the cast party/postrevel.

I utterly failed to wake up for my alarm at 8 pm. Instead, I woke up at 6 am. And then I thought to myself, hey, I could sleep some more, since I've likely missed the party. So I went back to sleep until 10:30 this morning.

But hey, I think I'm no longer sleep depped from getting 2.5 hours Friday night! :)
