chasing shadows again











{August 22, 2009}   from the edges of dream and dusk and dew-tipped eternal meadows

Today is full of things.  Carlos-the-Jackal and one of my other common people to babble at at random are gone.  Carlos-the-Jackal will return and demand I tell him things (even though he is the one who just went away!) so this post is so that when he returns, if I am out of words, he can still have them.  (And because anyone still reading this blog does indeed deserve both updates and cookies!)  Newer, excited, more boisterous words!  They will continue to frolic here.

Today I prepared a resume for an open casting that was abjectly ridiculous.  If they call me back, I may question some sanity.  Writing it was some of the most fun I’ve had here in Mississippi (it was fun, and that was during the euphoric phase of the month, which generally lasts about seven hours max, and is a great time when it happens).  I left with my mother and brother and headed down to casting (where we waited in line to fill out a form to be placed with a picture in a box) and then went to lunch.  On the way to casting we crossed the Mississippi River to Louisiana, a place I had never been until today.  It was for less than three minutes, but it was awesome!  Louisiana and I will see each other again, of course, because I will see New Orleans.

I am working on a lot of projects and am very excited!  I need to come up with a schedule, and then I will share some of these plans.  I am in a creative phase, but my creative phase begins with CHAOS!!! so some of these projects will likely not ever be completed, and I think it would be good if I waited until I knew which projects stood the chance of a snowball in a very hot fplace.  Hopefully creative will equal more blog.

Twitter is proving both awesome and distracting.  I have stumbled across things that have been awesome.  I love it when I can’t sleep.  At least until people are mostly sleeping and I have no updates and then start searching for more people to follow before the world ends because I am half asleep and must be distracted or creatures born of nightmares will twist their way out of the shadows.  This is a very real danger, and you should take it seriously.  I have very dangerous nightmares.  Post more on Twitter, or they will come for me.  For you.  For all of us.

Should you need to better understand what kind of world that would be, watch the Amon Saga.

Note to the universe: Ruby Tuesdays makes a tasty Pomegranate Lemonade.  The slight extra bit of something not perfect should be drowned in vodka.  It is served with vodka.  I recommend this.  (Just not with one’s family.  Unless you drink with your family.  As a general rule, I don’t.)  In the event my dreams do claw their way from shadow to substance, these drinks could be substituted for rum in the event of a rum shortage – or even for variety.  Consume many such drinks.  Duct tape, torches, rope, and cats are your friends.  Suspect everything else.  Sometimes suspect even those things which are your friends.

Good Luck with your creative endeavors, I’m definitely agreeing with that last paragraph, too.
