....I'm thirty-three years old, believe it or not, and have been so for one hour and forty-four minutes. Hell ought to be freezing over shortly, but it'd be hard to tell given the usually-intemperate Chicago weather report, which promises freezing nights within a week anyhow.

Historically, for those of you coming in late on the wyrdness, I don't always make it this far -- or necessarily last overlong after. Quality over quantity, one might as well say.... So, just feel free to tell me if you think I ought to be more paranoid than I am.

Further and more-detailed thoughts where such thoughts are likely to be secure....in the meantime, here's a load of quizzery to cover my escape....apparently, I'm a glam rock omelette. :-|

You Are an Omelette

You are an outrageous and bold person. You enjoy taking risks, even if you end up falling flat on your face.

You are very open to the world, and you love to mash up the different things you love.

You leap before you look, and you try to leap as often as you can. You believe in embracing opportunities.

You are a fascinating and colorful person. You've lived an interesting life, and you have lots of stories to tell.

What Kind of Eggs Are You?
Blogthings: We're Not Shrinks, But We Play Them On the Internet

Yep, nailed me there alright.....except that I do look -- and still leap -- because sometimes it's a dirty job that someone's gotta do. If I think I can catch an opportunity that's worth catching, I'll throw my hat into the ring, credentials or no.

Your Taste in Music Says You're Philosophical

Your musical tastes are reflective and complex.

You are intellectual to the point of being cerebral.

You are very open to new experiences, and even more open to new ideas and theories.

Wisdom and personal accomplishment are important to you.

You are naturally sophisticated. You are drawn to art, especially art by independent artists.

You are likely to be financially well off... and not because you were born that way.

What, me cerebral....? Perish the thought! *scoffs*

You Are Lightning

Beautiful yet dangerous

People will stop and watch you when you appear

Even though you're capable of random violence

You are best known for: your power

Your dominant state: performing

This I have to agree with....I think I've at least begun to come to terms with the fact that I'm a dramatic ham (mean streak as provoked) who wants all the attention I fully deserve in life. But I'm also a Libra, so I tend to be overtactful and diplomatic about it....:-S...

You Are Glam Rock

You are flamboyant, outgoing, and even a bit freaky. You are a natural entertainer.

You like music that rocks hard and doesn't hold back. You appreciate inventive musicians.

You are an unusual, eccentric person. You have some very interesting ideas about the world.

You like songs that echo your offbeat views. It's hard for a song to be too weird for you to enjoy.

I'm sure I could name quite a few that I find insufferably annoying, but "weird" in itself....not a problem.

You Kiss Like a Man

For you, kissing is a very sexual act. It's all about physical attraction.

You tend to take the lead with kissing. If you're attracted to someone, you want to kiss as soon as possible.

You prefer aggressive kisses. You like to test limits and see where a kiss goes.

Kissing makes you feel closer to your partner. You see kissing as a fast track to intimacy.

This above here is some fairly important personal information..../:)

Your Height Says You're Daring

You are a true adventurer, and you live for the thrill.

You have a lot of charisma, and you're good at convincing people to join you in your schemes.

You are open to the world, and you make connections easily. You have lots of friends.

You are likely to have many life paths to choose from. There are many possibilities open to you.

You are about as tall as the average British man.

In case you're wondering, my height is 5'9"...:-|

The Key to Your Life is Wisdom

Anything good in your life comes from your vision and clarity.

You're able to see above all the small things in life and wisely understand the big picture.

Anything bad in your life comes from sinking to the level of those around you.

Remember to lift people up, and refuse to participate in anything petty.


Your Life Path Number is 3

Your purpose in life is to express your unique self.

You are a creative and artistic person with an interesting view on life.

Witty and outgoing, you enjoy sharing your crazy ideas with anyone who will listen.

A total social butterfly, you're the life of any party.

In love, you inspire and enchant your partner. You are often an object of fantasy and desire.

While you are very talented, you sometimes lack the ambition to put your talents in play.

And while your wit carries you a long way, you occasionally use it to mask your true feelings.

Your natural abilities can bring you all the success in the world ... if you let them

Just like that fortune cookie said...I'll be fortunate at everything I put my hand to. Necessary first step -- put my hand to it.

Your Birthday's Wisdom is Thought

You believe a mind is a terrible thing to waste, and you try to exercise your brain as much as possible.

You are intrigued by almost everything, and you are curious about the world around you.

You want to travel to foreign lands, read lots of books, and master many subjects.

You love to go on all sorts of adventures, especially the kind that don't require you to leave your room.

Heh....no argument there. I've had a fair amount of fascinating journeys without leaving the room I was in at the time. No passport, no borders, no limitations.

Been stressed to the hilt lately, but that should be relieved now, or at least shift into all the other stresses due to crawl up my back with deadlines and such. I have a play to copyedit and gank audition sides from, and the auditions themselves to attend and evaluate next week. This time, I'm co-directing. >:) Plus -- oh bugger, I just remembered this -- I have to email a half-size audition flier out before I can go to bed. No rest quite yet for this wicked polymathematical johannes factotum.....

I'll be back online tonight, and less frazzled, one hopes...

Thanks for the music! I might have been kinda weirded-out by TMBG, if I hadn't heard that one before and gotten the joke of it. :D

Oddly enough (or totally not), I have very little sense of my age at this age -- it's rather bereft of "normal" life landmarks, and therefore entirely relative/subjective. Which is the analytical way of saying that I kinda do tend to act like Peter Pan......

From: [identity profile] aureantes.livejournal.com

:D Yeah, and about time, one would think.....now all I gotta watch out for is Opus Dei, the Sanhedrin and the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Or something like that...:P Maybe I should start riding giant sandworms -- though, I think I'm in the wrong region. Most impressive thing I'd be likely to get is giant earthworms..... :-|

Thanks muchly...:D I'm still enjoying the festive fallout from it, seeing as mid-week birthdays don't lend themselves to one big party so much as to a protracted splattering of gifts and occasions.

Best wishes on your birthday. Enjoy the rest of your third decade...it's the best 'cos you're "mature" enough to know better and still hot enough to enjoy it. Rock the house. ; )

From: [identity profile] aureantes.livejournal.com

I'm agreeing with you on the decade so far -- though I still get pegged for younger due to my not having a clear idea how to "act my age" consistently (Peter Pan type, not frat boy/Judd Apatow character).

Actual house-rocking will probably have to wait for the weekend, though I did get in a repeat viewing of Wolverine the other night on DVD -- have had dinner and lunch engagements with various family members, but no full-scale partying with friends and accumulated family. I think I'll wind up putting some of my partying instinct off till the weekend before Halloween so as to make as big an occasion as possible (little sister has her birthday the 28th, so we can share a shindig)....at least by then I should have the house decorated. (>:)....)

Thank you! It most often seems to fall on Yom Kippur, and occasionally on National Depression Screening Day, but I have apparently caught a reprieve this year.

From: [identity profile] aureantes.livejournal.com

Aww, thanks! I suppose it's only natural that I am what I enjoy making the most -- I'm famous/notorious in my family for what I'll toss into an omelette, so I should have seen it coming.

From: [identity profile] aureantes.livejournal.com

It's another one of my late stepfather's plays (little surprise there, I suppose) which he'd called A Christmas Story and I'm/we're just calling Christmas Story to avoid any confusion with better-known works. I'd expressed some possible interest in directing it when he was alive, and so now I'm going to be co-directing it along with the guy who directed the musical I was in back in January 2007 (otherwise known as the show that had to go on even though I was in the jagged throes of acrimonious breakup with Litha at the time).

It's a somewhat-melodramatic piece of "Miracle in the Middle of Nowhere"-ness, set in a remote rural train station with five stranded passengers and a fortuitous benevolent stranger who makes none-too-veiled asides in the direction of heaven -- unheard by the other chars, naturally. It has some good heartwarming possibilities, esp. if the lines are given pacing and nuance and the time setting is maintained in the early 1960s at latest -- which for all I know was "the present day when he first wrote it down, though that catchall generalization certainly doesn't fit the script now.

I have fairly high hopes for the production, actually, once I get the editing gone and rough out how to place more Christmas carols in around the action. It opens Thanksgiving weekend (Friday & Saturday at 8 pm, Sunday matinee at 3) and runs the following Friday and Saturday only -- we'd have had the previous weekend too, but rehearsal time was running a little short by the time we settled on play, directors and audition dates.
