Oh yeah, the blog.

Haven't been writing much, because.. well, because.

Haven't been doing much. That's easy to explain, I'm lazy. Sure, work, some of the time, and yeah.. other stuff like.. er. Well I went to a meeting, met up with some people in the film and theatre community here. Have some auditions coming up. Well probably one, the other coincides with a night I have to work. Guess I'm too busy, huh..

And that's about it.

All on my lonesome..

Apart from the kitty of course. Ok,so I'm not all alone. Wen you've got someone constantly bothering you for food, you can't feel too alone.

So.. a certain member of the household, obvs not me, or the kitty, has gone to London for the weekend.. yeah, I know, right after a weekend in Paris, some people get all the breaks, anyway, the result is I'm here alone.

It;s been uneventful, so far. I mean, I made some soup, I've cleaned a bit, wasted time the various ways I usually do, oh and I spilled water on the keyboard which made it work kinda funny, with all sorta of extra characters on some keys.. not this one, I swapped it over for the other keyboard, which I don't really like, the shift key doesn't seem to work very well.. anyway, hopefully that one will work properly when it dries out.. much check on that..

what was I saying.. oh yeah..

I've done this before, for much longer periods so I can handle it. and I'm pretty busy anyway. Ok so I'm not, the night of the theatre and night of work have been changed to 2 night in a row of me being here alone, with the internet, and my videos and books and the kitty.. due to me still nursing a cold and it being damn cold out there.

Is it sad that this is my idea of bliss?

The Gloom.

I should be grumpy, really, the weather is, well.. constant rain, I have a sore throat which probably means the next few days I'll be going through the whole set of cold related symptoms, there's not so much food in the house despite me doing a big shop last night, which I was able to do because I stupidly went early for my tour.. got the schedule wrong, and had 2 hours to hang about, probably contributing to the way I feel today, though it was actually relatively warm, and not raining at all.. and I didn't end up having a tour anyway.. *breathes*

well anyway.. it's not so bad. I just like the excuse to be totally lazy. Got a few nights off due to a few schedule changes.. which I need at the mo, going out in the freezing cold and probably wet night will not help me recover quicker, not really worth the showing up and not getting a tour fee, which I would undoubtedly be earning...

so yeah.. very lazy day, I can watch it rain outside in the knowledge that I don't need to go out there...

except to run out for a few foodstuffs.. might need to do that in a bit..

I'm in Prague now..

but earlier on I was in Paris. Over the weekend I went..

It was good. I might write some more details at some point. Probably not tonight though. I might take this opportunity to tell you that the weather was lovely though, as that seems to be an important detail.

Going tomorrow..

To the fabulous city of Paris..

still need to organize a bit.. but it's tomorrow so..

hope the cam works ok.

It's over..


My camera's acting up. It started a few days ago when I started turning off randomly.. I mean, when it shouldn't.. when I had the feeling the batteries were charged well enough thank you very much. Well.. I charged them again and this happened a few times.. so I figured there's something wrong with the batteries or the cam.

I tried both of them, and it seemed as though it was doing it with each set.. and this is a problem for obvious reasons, of course, but especially since I'm off to Paris this weekend and I NEED A FUCKING CAMERA THAT WORKS FOR FUCKS SAKE.. well.. not I put in the other set and they seem to be working, so far. Of course, if they're only sorta working, that is, let me take a few photos, even what might be classed as a lot, but not as much as they should.. it's a problem seeing as I don't have any spares now.. and I'M GOING AWAY FOR THE WEEKEND AND NEED TO TAKE LOTS AND LOTS OF PICS.. so you see.

Might need another cam, but what.. and for what money? And do I need one need one or do I not need one. I have 2 days to figure it out.

Told you life was hard.

I'm going to Paris soon.

For the weekend. Next weekend. Just been planning stuff, something I don't usually do, I mostly just show up at a place and wander around.. hope there's some accommodation available :) ok, I (or more likely whoever I'm with) usually take care of that.. but otherwise.

Well.. the other person this time has made sure that we planned it well, so we'll see lots of stuff, but hopefully there'll be plenty of time for just wandering and stuff.

Speaking of elements.

It's raining. Yeah.. nothing interesting has happened since the last thing so I'm talking about the weather. It changed.. well not really so much the other day when I lamented the unseasonal weather being over, it got back to being quite nice, and tolerably warm. And then yesterday. I knew it was colder, so on my way out I wore more layers, warmer clothing than I had done for some time. I was still too cold.

Now it's raining, and freezing. Relatively. Winter is coming.

Elements and elephants.

There are way too few occasions that the title sentence is appropriate for, but I just realized, that there is one, was one. I wish I'd thought about it 3 weeks ago just after said occasion but I didn't.

So now I'm using it. Sad, I know. Anyway, it relates to the day o Vinobrani which I wrote about just after.. and as you may remember, there was an elephant. Now, I rarely get to be anywhere near an elephant on it's own, but you may not be aware, that at this wine harvest celebration there were also elements. Ok, so I hear you saying, "there are always elements! it's always raining, or windy, or sunny or something!" Yes, I know, and I don't mean that, I mean that the 4 elements were present, that is Earth, Wind, Fire and Water. Or ladies dressed up as them.

So yeah.. elements and elephants.

I think it's over..

this spell of beautiful, unseasonal weather we've been having, at least today it was a little colder, and a lot greyer than of yore.. yore being the last week or so.. probably 10 days, at least all of October up til now. Oh well.. we had a good run.

That's all.

Something from the weekend..

it's a video of a bunny dancing. Yes, it is. From that thing I did on Saturday.

Sooner or later I'll do something else interesting.. and thus have another subject.

I have to say..

it's been very warm for October. Rather pleasant really.. actually, a little too hot sometimes, when one isn't prepared.. but overall quite nice.

Follow the bunny!

Happy October all... it's been quite a nice start to the month here.. a lovely warm day, almost hot actually, especially for following a conga line down a major city square in the afternoon, though not so bad if you aren't wearing a furry bunny suit, which one person actually was. Oh.. I did that, btw, earlier today, following a bunny. Well it was a guy, in a bunny suit.

Yeah, that's the kind of thing I've been getting up to lately. That and some drinking. Well.. some work as well.. though not as much as the summer months. I can live with that.. drinking and following bunnies staging ridiculous stunts suits me better really. Doesn't pay so well but.. sometimes you have to do stuff for the love of it.
