RL and fannish update 
8th-Dec-2013 07:51 pm
Jared blah blah hair
I did an audition today and just found out that I got the part. :) There were 4 others going for the role so I'm pretty happy to have won that one. It's for a play called Brilliant Lies. It's by an Australian playwright - David Williamson. It looks at the issue of sexual harassment in the workplace. I will be playing an anti discrimination mediator (who has a few issues of her own).

I wasn't going to do another play so soon, but I really like the director's work and I know she'll do a good job of directing. It does mean I'm back to limited time for fannish stuff (boo!), but acting is like therapy for me, so I think it will be worthwhile.

School finishes in 2 weeks. YAY! 5 weeks holiday here I come (boy, do I need it…). I'm going to spend a week in Queensland in January, which will my first "proper" holiday in about 12 years (how did THAT happen?!)



I am currently working on my xmas gift vid. I am really worried I won't get it finished on time (haven't done one past 3 minutes in AGES!), but I going to give it my best shot. Even if I don't finish it before Xmas, I will still finish it and gift it. :)

Thanks to counteragent, deirdre_c, d0llface_h00ker and caffienekitty for donating to fandomaid. I promise I WILL get your works complete - it just might take me a while. Sorry.





I've been up and down about the show this week. I've gone from being quite positive to feeling rather negative. It's taken me a while to figure out what exactly a lot of my flist have been unhappy with this season and when it finally sunk in it made me sad too (I'm not going to rehash it here, but it's in some discussion threads in my last reaction post).

Having said that though I am going to remain cautiously optimistic for the second half. At the beginning of this season I said I was going to watch and try and be a little more detached than I had been in the past (ha!). It's not been easy because this season's storyline has totally sucked me in. I've loved it. It's the way it's now going to play out that worries me (and what they are going to do with Sam). BUT! 1) no point worrying over something that hasn't happened yet, 2) it's just a TV show (and it's ridiculous that I actually have to remind myself of that and 3) the pretty won't let me stay away (yes, I shall resort to being completely shallow ).



Hope you are all well and surviving the lead up to Christmas. The world's kind of a mess at the moment so I'm hoping we figure out ways to consume less and take the time to appreciate humanity more.

*hugs*

Congrats on the audition! That's awesome. And I look forward to your vid, as always. I know what you mean about Show. I decided I was going to be a little more detatched this season but dammit, that Sam/Zeke storyline sucked me right on in. Plus, y'know, THE BUNKER!!! Now way to stay neutral I'm afraid, hon.
9th-Dec-2013 08:53 am (UTC)
Thanks hun!

And I look forward to your vid, as always.

Ha! So do I! (It will mean I have managed to finish it!)

but dammit, that Sam/Zeke storyline sucked me right on in. Plus, y'know, THE BUNKER!!!

Yes! Sam/Zeke has been damn interesting for sure. I hope we get some scenes that show us the effect it's all had on Sam in the 2nd half...

Thanks hun!

And I'm sure I will. I always manage to make myself feel positive about it somehow. :))

Congratulations on the play! It sounds interesting.
9th-Dec-2013 08:54 am (UTC)
Thanks! It is pretty interesting (and fairly intense - though it is a black comedy)
8th-Dec-2013 05:57 pm (UTC)
Hey, bb! Congratulations on the play and on your soon-to-be proper holiday! \o/ (As far as Show goes, well, there has been a lot of negativity and flouncing going around, but like you, I'm willing to wait and see what happens in January and beyond.) I DO hope you get your happy feelings back!

the pretty won't let me stay away (yes, I shall resort to being completely shallow ).

The club. Welcome to it. ;D
10th-Dec-2013 01:22 pm (UTC)
Thank you honey! (and I'm sure I'll get my happy feelings back soon. In fact…I'm already feeling it! *g*)

I'm in the club! YAY!
8th-Dec-2013 05:59 pm (UTC)
Congrats on the audition! Knock their socks off. And good luck with the vid--you haven't disappointed (well, *me*) yet.

As far as Show is concerned, I'm in the wait-and-see boat, just far enough offshore of mainland fandom, detached enough to retain some perspective...

Oh yeah, that metaphor creaks badly. And is a lie, besides. (sigh). Can't quit 'em.
10th-Dec-2013 01:24 pm (UTC)
Thank you honey! (and thanks for the luck for the vid…I think I'm gonna need it!)

Ha!! And I like the idea of being offshore from mainland fandom..:D (I can't see that happening to me in the near future even though I sometimes wish it would!)

Congrats on getting that part! \0/ Sounds like an interesting role, too. :)
10th-Dec-2013 01:25 pm (UTC)
Thanks hun! It's going to be an interesting play. Quite dark actually- but touches on some really important issues.

Thank you! <3

Oooh, good job on getting the part! I hope you'll tell us more about it as time goes on. :)
10th-Dec-2013 01:26 pm (UTC)
Thanks! And sure…I'll do some updates as the show progresses (we only have 6 weeks before it opens so there will be some pretty intensive rehearsals).

8th-Dec-2013 09:54 pm (UTC)
Congrats, Hun! : )
Looking forward to the new vid! x
10th-Dec-2013 01:27 pm (UTC)
Thank you!

(and I'm looking forward to it to as it means it will actually be finished…;D)
8th-Dec-2013 11:30 pm (UTC)
Congratulations! I'll try to make sure I see this one!
10th-Dec-2013 01:27 pm (UTC)
Thanks hun! (it opens on 30th Jan…;D)

Congrats!!!

Oh yes, staying detached when it comes to Show....does that ever work out for anyone? It doesn't for me. I simply cannot be even a little bit detached when it comes to those boys. Dammit. :)
10th-Dec-2013 01:29 pm (UTC)
Thank you!

I simply cannot be even a little bit detached when it comes to those boys

Neither can I!! I sometimes want to be but their messed up, tangled, FULL ON DEVOTED love is just too addictive.
9th-Dec-2013 10:48 pm (UTC)
Hooray for you!!! And please don't worry one bit about getting those fandomaid vidlets done. Whenever you manage to get around to it will be fine, fine, fine!! (Goodness knows I still have a charity fic that's unfinished from LAST YEAR. *hangs head in shame*)
10th-Dec-2013 01:31 pm (UTC)
Thanks bb!

And you'll have to let me know what you'd like for your vidlet! I'm going to start on them as soon as I finish my xmas gift one (hopefully early next year…)

*hugs*

Thank you hun.

Thanks awesome, hon!!!!

Thanks sweetie. Though it means I gotta learn lines now…(and er ::koff:: in my youth that wasn't so hard. These days.../o\)
