Stupid personality tests

Why do I bother? Collapse )

In Flagrante Gothicto was great, a fabulous combination of Rebecca, Jane Eyre, and Wuthering Heights. I loved the moments of hysterical incongruity, like when the costume ball was happening and Our Heroine showed up in a grass skirt with a coconut bra. And the stage craft was so on target -- I about shot the pooch when the singer at the party did a series of scales and then just sat there with her mouth open while the sound of dogs howling in the distance came over the speakers of the theater. What a great time!

Had a nice chat with Debbie and Dave before, during, and after the show. He is apparently the same personality type I am, as he yelled at the people whose cell phones went off during the show (I don't in live theater because I think it disturbs the actors more than the phone does, although I will in a movie). She said the contract at *$$ she submitted me for would start some time in mid-August. I imagine they would be very busy with the WaMu project at Quardev, but they've been so flaky I just can't imagine that it will actually happen when they say it will. We'll see.

Otherwise, I more or less finished my article around 6:15, we got to Jai Thai to meet the wedding party at around 6:40, then wrapped up the night at Doc Watsons, where Worthy Opponent met back up with us after going to the airport to pick up his brother. They're at Linda's now, and I'm home because I didn't want to drink anymore and I didn't want to push them to go out to eat when they were feeling all social and drinky, plus my eyeballs were sticking together and that's a sure sign it's time to go home.

Post Bon-Odori

Today was one of those days that make me think I'd rather live in Seattle than anyplace else in the world. I'd like to add that I resent that I wasted so much of yesterday writing the Tablet story when it was equally as beautiful then as it was today, and for that reason I will keep this entry short.

Worked on my story some MORE today after a waffly breakfast (cornmeal pecan) with the brother in law and his pal. When I wrapped, we went to Denny Blaine beach, which had lots of people there but didn't feel crowded - just friendly. I was in the water three times and almost fell asleep on the grass between times. Then we were going to go to the Locks, but got distracted at Ivar's long enough to make me think heading back for Bon Odori was the way to go. (Did you know you can boat in to Ivar's? It was just crazy seeing people docking behind the restaurant! And the view of the lake was just awesome. Too bad I don't like fish!) Bon Odori was pretty as usual, and my Beef Donburi and Yakisoba was very tasty. Now we're home and B-I-L is off to Broadway to drink. Me, I'm ready for ice cream and Carcasonne!
