I'M BACK!

I'm the first to be back in our apartment... as usual. Ah, the peace and quiet, and relative cleanliness! Who knows when the rest of them will arrive, probably while I'm gone, which is unfortunate.

I almost died on the way back since there was an insane lull in conversation and I was ready fall asleep at the wheel. I'm surprised I didn't end up careening into oncoming traffic or something. Thankfully there were Wint-o-green Lifesavers in the back seat to keep me awake. Other than that... apparently there are endless versions about 10 different Christmas songs that the local radio station has chosen to play ALL month long! I was initially excited at the idea of Christmas songs, but with the lack of any snow here it just seems lacking somehow. I'm hoping that we'll get a major snow storm here and remedy the situation immediately. It's always fun when the Friday night Christmas Concert comes with a snow storm.

Pity me )

Off to rehearsal, 3 hours of standing and pretending to know music I have no clue about! Absolute torture! Fun!

I'm feeling fine about the story, actually, I feel pretty damn good about the story.

The choir concert:
If you're interested in my insights )

Marin is supposed to be back tonight, and apparently bringing a friend with her for the week. I'm not sure how I feel about it, because in the past I know what guests mean. They mean messes that no one cleans up, Marin skipping class because she was up all night with her friend, and a complete loss of my TV time (and everyone should know by now that I have some strangely symbiotic relationship with my television sets). So, what should I do? Kick up a fuss about it, or do nothing and stew. I know what my sister would say - "Be direct!" And she would be right. But... I don't want to be mean to my friends... and I don't want to be a crab about these things. Just watch, two weeks from now I'll have some complaint about Chloe. It's just like we can't catch a break, because somehow at a point last year we managed to work out a decent understanding among the four of us. And of course I'm only remembering the good times at this point, so I don't exactly remember when that happened. Was it earlier or later in the year? And why does this matter?

The light at the end of the tunnel? There's a new House this week, and there's a new CSI, which looks to be totally awesome! Its going to be dark, but I'm looking forward to that. We get to see WP do the criminalist-killer thing that he's done in the past. I'm wondering if there will be any similarity to Manhunter, or if that's just wishful thinking.

Alas, Will is trying to sleep before her 3:30am-6:30am shift, so I should be courteous and get off of the computer. I'll probably go write for a while, since I'm still living on pre-daylight savings time and that means my brain is basically scrambled.

Guess what ranting got me yesterday? Nothing except feeling guilty about all the whining I was doing. It turns out that after midnight my muse decided to return. Thank God! So, my story is almost finished, and I have a couple of days to spare right? Of course, a beta is probably in my best interest so, we'll see how I feel about it later. I feel good about it now, but give me a couple of hours. I'll be in the middle of the choir concert and suddenly realize that something is horribly wrong with what I've written. But, until that moment, I'm pleased with how it's looking at the moment.

Now, it's time for me to make myself pretty for the choir concert today. I'm not looking forward to this... at all. My parents, as well as Becky's, are going to be here, and as much as I want to be able to dinner with them after, I get the feeling it will be out of the question because it's going to be dark by the time the concert is finished. The thing no one tells you about northern Minnesota is that it's the middle of nowhere, but there are deer everywhere, waiting for you to use them to demolish your car. It was creepy driving back to school on Friday night, because they were all eating in the ditches and on hills besides the road, but the only thing I saw cross the road was a weasel or a fox or something small like that. I'm glad I didn't hit anything, because Mom would have had a fit if I had. Chances are I won't do something like this again, because she was really apprehensive about me driving alone so late at night. I'm a college student, late nights don't phase me. Still, she was worried, and I felt bad about that.

Okay, off to get ready, I have a ton to do, and 2 hours to do it.
