22nd March 2007


i went to Vanderbilt University tonight for an International party.  they had all types of food and alcohol.  they even had a couple hookahs if you were so inclined.  i did not partake.  i did partake of some sort of Brazilian drink with lime and maybe rum/brandy/vodka?  it was very yummy.  i had a shot of kalua from the Hawaiian table.  had some sake from the sushi table.  and some edamame.  yummmm.  edamame.

there was also an American table, featuring southern type food- barbeque, green beans cooked until they became grey, baked beans, chicken and some sort of other meat.  it was all by itself.  it was kind of funny.

it was a surprisingly fun event.  i needed it.

i had such a frustrating day today.  i have to throw a party (rather unexpectedly) for the graduating class.  we needed to give them invitations.  i ran all over town trying to get them printed, no one could do it.  had to do it myself.

i bought blank invitations on pretty textured paper that i could print on.  i will never buy this stuff again.  half of them ended up ruined because the paper did not absorb the ink fast enough as they were being printed.  once i figured this out, i had to print them one at a time to get them to come out nice. 

i don't want to go to work tomorrow.  it's going to be a very bitchy day.  meetings all day.  some crazy kind of lunch event for the incoming students, which means i'm going to be swamped all day.  no fun for the lorelei tomorrow.  not at all. :(

okay i'm off to watch some Indian movie that my boss gave me to watch.

8:24pm: been away big long time :)

oh my, i've been away so long.  you see, i changed my e-mail address and could not for the life of me, remember my flaming password.  

password assistance only helps when you have the correct e-mail address entered.  oops.

i had a strange thought today and suddenly remembered my password.

now i am back.

left a comment or two for alteredboi.

will think of something creative to do later.

i'm just happy i solved the stupid password problem.

3:55pm: brrr. just the thought of it.
i shall be returning to my cold northern homeland in 13 days. no more cold and grey skies filled with rain. just cold and glittering snowfall and ice coated evergreens. we will slay a tree the day after i arrive, and commence the holiday festivities. perhaps i may go skiing. i get to see my grammy. i'm so excited.

i may venture up kentucky way upon my return. or head farther south to thaw out.

10:49pm: random journal entry
i've been watching a lot of documentaries lately. i saw one not long ago about the cuttlefish. those things are fucking amazing! i think i want to be one in my next life.

they have the ability to change their skin color and texture to completely match their surroundings. they don't just change color, they can imitate three dimensional texture of,say, a rock with some frondy bits sticking out of it. the scientist guys captured one and had it copying all sorts of things. they put a black and white checkerboard pattern in the tank with it and the cuttlefish matched it perfectly in few seconds. fucking awesome. it would be cool to have one as a pet and make it change patterns all day.

hmmm, what else?

since alteredboi tagged me, i'll play. here are seven songs i am into right now:

the sweetest perfection- depeche mode
witness- tori amos
the unicorn- the irish rovers

every day is halloween- ministry
burn in hell- twisted sister

10:37pm: got birthday?

Your Birthdate: October 27

Your birth on the 27th day of the month (9 energy) adds a tone of selflessness and humanitarianism to your life path.

Certainly, you are one who can work very well with people, but at the same time you need a good bit of time to be by yourself to rest and meditate.

There is a very humanistic and philanthropic approach in most of things that you do.

This birthday helps you be broadminded, tolerant, generous and very cooperative.

You are the type of person who uses persuasion rather than force to achieve your ends.

You tend to be very sensitive to others' needs and feelings, and you able to give much in the way of friendship without expecting a lot in return.

3:33pm: so, i was thinking, maybe i should update this. it's been longer than i can remember since i last posted anything.

the students where i work have me hooked on myspace, so i've been lurking there for awhile.

today is music day. i'm determined to get some stuff recorded today, dammit. i've been so bad about putting it off. i blame it on my current funk. i hate funks, my head gets so muddy and i get preoccupied with things that don't really matter in the here and now. i find myself pondering what sort of sounds i should use and then pick up a book and read for awhile. then i realize three hours have passed and i still haven't decided on sounds, then i get distracted by the lack of candles burning so i must light some then i start thinking about my place in the cosmos and maybe i ought to be doing something more important than indulging in someone else's fantasy and my own sonic chaos. so i contemplate my purpose and can't sleep or function because i can't think of one.

but i'm okay now. i've made myself stop thinking about all that. i hate time. it seems like it lasts for too long until you need it to.

7:39pm: damn, it's been awhile
wow, has it really been this long? time has a way of escaping me these days. nothing terribly exciting going on. toiling, trying to start a new career. same old stuff. hung up some pictures in the new place finally. god my life is exciting.

been writing lots of scary, depressing music lately. trying to get the cirque du gauche project going again, an idependent label was expressing some interest in our one song.

i couldn't decide on any fishies for my desk so i got a plant. and a toy snake. and i brought in the moose that use to sit on my keyboard. mooose. mooooooooose. moose are cool. it would be so fun to ride a moose. lumberjacks could put on racing silks and have moose races. maybe even have moose steeplechases. that would kick ass. buncha mooses jumping over stuff like fences and stone walls and beer kegs. maybe give the winning moose a bucket of beer and some hot wings after the race. i could talk about moose all day. i should write a book about them. i don't think there are enough books about moose. or mooses. or whatever. i'm not sure what i would name a moose if i had one. a moose needs a really good name. like agamemnon. or gladiola.

i need to go visit the fen again, i miss him.

It's been so beautiful here at night. The lightning bugs are all in the tree tops, twinkling like little earth stars. They've even been hovering low in the fields like a carpet of light. The coyotes have stopped their screaming, their pups have just learned to yip and bark.

Still trying to find me a home in Nashville, or the Nashville area. I looked at the most awful apartment on Saturday, it looked like the scene of a messy domestic dispute. I guess I need to find a roommate.

Met lots of famous people last week. That was pretty cool. Got to do lots of schmoozing, did the sad "will you hire me" puppy dog face. Had lots of alcohol (open bar with music type people, very bad for whoever was paying for it :) ) Hung around with drunken engineers after the conference, twas pretty sweet.

Sad news today. Lexgoth went away, there is a tombstone, RIP to Lexgoth. Poor old Lexgoth. :(

Decided I may start writing erotic novels. Sounds like it might be fun.
Current Mood: wistfully goth

grrrr. internet not wanting to work today, i think earthlink is fucked up. every time i get connected, i get an error that shuts the whole system down. finally got on the internet, but i can't get my e-mail, it can't find the server. oh well.

went to concerts this weekend, riverstages out in Nashville. three days of musical fun and getting financially raped. i saw wyclef jean and johnny lang on friday, and yesterday i stood in the pouring rain and got completly cold and wet watching steppenwolf. didn't make it until styx came on, i decided they weren't worth pneumonia so i left. steppenwolf was cool, the guy on keys was badass. got to watch drunken fratboys mosh during magic carpet ride and born to be wild. pretty fucking funny. wanted to go tonight to see parliment funkadelic, but it's too cold and looks like rain again :( so i think i'm just gonna go shop and see a movie or something.

9:32pm: i'm a graduate!!!
i graduated!!!! yeah!!!! i got an 83 on my pro-tools exam, which i was very upset about. i was battling a nasty sinus infection when i was taking it, so i think if i were healthy i would have done much better. i got a 96 on my neve practical. yeah!!! not a hundred, but i guess it's good. i get so upset when i don't get a perfect score.

started working at the school, for a little while i think. need to find a job in audio though, since that's what i want to do. also need to find a new home. no pressure at all. i'm absolutely broke and i need to spend more money.

not much of an entertaining update. i'll try to think of something better next time.

Current Mood: squidgy

11:50pm: one down, two to go
Just took my final paper exam at school. Two practical exams to go and I'll be another graduate without a job. Wooohooo. I've had a couple of offers to work for free (internships) that could turn into paying jobs depending on how well I do.
Everybody bitch at the chicken:

The chicken is scary, but somehow amusing. I don't feel quite right about it. Not quite right at all.

Ummmm, let's see, what else.....

How do you catch a unique rabbit?

Unique up on him :)

How do you catch a tame rabbit?

Tame way, unique up on him :)

What did the fish say when it hit a concrete wall?

Fishes are cool. They swim a lot and they don't talk back.

Okay, that's it for now. Gotta do techno remixes of heavy metal stuff for my own and the bands own amusement.
