Well today was really quite nice, I slept in for the first time in forever and enjoyed doing little but pilates, practicing and watching tv. Until my 6 o'clock call that is. Sang opera scenes tonight, they felt really good, especially the role that was written for me... er well, written for another gay light lyric tenor, same thing. I actually feel pretty good about singing right now, which is good. Another round of opera scenes tomorrow after breakfast with Nate, who's visiting from California until tomorrow afternoon.

Not that my life is really working out, but I have had a nice weekend of trying to forget about it. Tomorrows the dreaded V-Day, and I'm in a great mood. Bring it on Cupid.

Current Mood: tired, but happy

some thoughts on the rest of my life (somewhat long-winded)Collapse )

In other news, in the past two weeks I've seen an amazing number of wonderful friends that I've missed. That has been at least a good thing.

I need to stop adding to this post, goodbye.

Well, thankfully my blood pressure was normal today, 120/80, so that's fine.

But, my hip is killing me!! I have been letting out yells while walking down stairs... that's not me, I can usually grin and bear pain. Well I have another appointment tomorrow... the saga continues.

I hate doctors, yah sure they're helpful and they cure shit.... whatever.

For some reason they see me and think "nope, not this one... not going to help him at all."

So after we talk about how it hurts to walk, she says "You may have gout, I'm just guessing... Now about your blood pressure, you should exercise." After the initial shock and awe that I was experiencing I calmly said "I was exercising, but now it hurts to walk."


"how about swimming? you like to swim?"

and her advice when I told her wearing shoes hurt:
"where wide shoes"


So after a useless visit with her where she told me the following things could cause the gout: Alcohol, protein, salt, and sugar, I went to the hospital lab to have x-rays done. I'm not even sure why. To make sure I don't have a bone spur that only hurts once every 26 months?

n;vainvqeir sick? kadlgnieo
So, I'm taking it easy today. I've had this sore throat since I got back. It has been accompanied by some delightful headaches...

At first I thought I was dehydrated, then I thought I hurt myself singing. I still sound bad.

Today I woke up feeling awful, and I fear I may actually be sick... here's hoping all I need is some rest.

Current Mood: sick

jhnaiqer auditions airbveruvb
I just found this theater that is auditioning for three things, Sweeny Todd, Ahmal and the Night Visitors and a traveling theater group for school shows. They are all paying gigs, and I think I could book any of them...

The theater is in West Kingston, RI. Which, for those who don't know, is basically the southern most part of RI... As much as I would love to be in those shows, I really can't see driving over two hours for rehearsals and shows, it's a shame.

I'm off. I have a concert tomorrow with the Illumination Opera Company. Illuminationopera.com

dskfb napless weekend auibqer
So when I updated on Friday I said that I would nap on Saturday.... total lies. I worked, then Steph, Joe, Maggie, Kelli and I went to Mambo for food and Monkey's for ice cream. Then I sat around, got ready and went to the show. All three nights went really really well, Saturday and Sunday were virtually sold out. There were 5 empty seats between the two nights. Saturday night mom, dad, Gayle, Hannah, Sarah, Susan and Derek came to the show. After Sarah and I went to Gayle's for pancakes and wine. Awesomeness. Sunday was a marathon of singing, and awkwardness abounded in Lynn. It turned out okay. We went out after to a Chinese place called "Green Tea" (I think.) Food was good, service was slooow. Lara and I enjoyed our final Mikado carpooling, and I slept. Monday I had lunch with Elizabeth at noon, taught 3:30 - 6:30 and then had Westford Chorus from 7 - 10. I only ate the chicken strips basket and ice cream yesterday. Today I opened and then sat around and had tech rehearsal part 2. Its actually shaping up. The concert "Boogie Nights" is on Saturday at 8pm at the Parish Center for the Arts in Westford, MA if anyone wants to go. I'm conducting 3 choral pieces and singing, "Yesterday Once More"(back-ups), "Teach Your Children," and "It's Too Late." Tomorrow I have to work and then I might get to pick up my new glasses and my contacts. Thursday.... I have a day off! Friday, opening at sbux and teaching 3:30 - 7. Saturday, open and then "Boogie Nights" at 8.

So In case you wanted to know my schedule for the rest of the week, there it was.

I wish I wasn't so out of practice conducting, this pop stuff is not easy. Every entrance in one of the songs is on the and of 4... awkward. Except one entrance on the and of 1, guess how well that goes over... "Waterloo".... damn you ABBA!!!!!

Current Mood: a little stressed, and tired.

avnqievn nap anve
nap, as in, the thing I want to be doing right now... but alas I have wasted too much time... need to shower, shave, battle my hair, do my stage make up, and be out of here around 5.


Tonight should be a good show. It's actually just for the residents of Southgate, the retirement community we're using for rehearsals and tomorrow's performance. Tomorrows a public show in Shrewsbury and Sunday's show is in Lynn at a facility called LynnArts... I haven't seen it yet so we'll see how that goes.

Tomorrow I have to open, then I will be napping, guaranteed.

Current Mood: tired

Tech week, good times. It actually is, unlike many of the shows I've done recently we've been running the shows for the past few rehearsals and today is the dress rehearsal. Make-up, ridiculous costume and ridiculous hair.... I have just the top pulled back and the rest left down... yah.

I bought contacts and glasses today, so I should have them by next wednesday, which is cool. I've spent a lot of money lately, but it's all stuff I need, and most of it are things that will last for a while.

I had a lesson today for the first time in a while, it went really really well. Really well.

I guess that's it. I have an hour or so to chill, then off to meet Lara and head to Shrewsbury.

Current Mood: calm

qienrvuioeqnr oh netflix abiuqebr
Netflix thinks I'll enjoy Michael Moore's "Sicko."

Michael Moore sets his sights on the plight of the uninsured in this eye-opening, Oscar-nominated documentary. In the world's richest country, 45 million people have no health insurance, while HMOs grow in size and wealth. Moore also explores the widespread use of antidepressants and their possible link to violent behavior. With his trademark humor and confrontational style, Moore asks the difficult questions to get to the truth behind today's health care.

Which, I may or may not enjoy. The reasoning is what makes me laugh.

Why is This Recommended:
Brokeback Mountain
Super Size Me

What on earth does Brokeback have to do with a movie about HMOs.... is there a typo somewhere in the Brokeback description? Someone forgot an o?

nviqn random funny story andgaer
So I left my work pants at the gym yesterday with my work keys attached... oops! I went back this morning around 6 am to retrieve them. When I got them I held them up and someone had taken my keyring off of the pants, removed my keys and put them back stealing only my key rings... what?!? Who does that?
