Once again I'm in a sort of limbo, purgatory, a halfway house of waiting...

And things happen. Got some stuff going on at the mo, or at least I should have.. kind of procrastinating about 4 different things right now but tomorrow I have to get onto at least one of them.. probably should try for at least minimally dealing with another one of them as well.. I shall see.

back to work, I spose. Of course, I don't have a traditional work week myself due to being employed in the tourist trade, but I am working tonight, after quite a few nights off due to rehearsals and other things like.. well, after a few nights off.
Tellurian \te-LOOR-ee-uhn\ , adjective:
1. Of or characteristic of the earth or its inhabitants.
1. An inhabitant of the earth.
We must keep in mind that we are, or should I say have become, hybrid personae, part tellurian, and part extraterrestrial.
-- Robert Silverberg and Karen Haber, Universe 3
What special affinities appeared to him to exist between the moon and woman? Her antiquity in preceding and surviving successive tellurian generations…

I used to have a bit of a series running of this sort of thing, you know, those little things that "everyone" does, or that we "all" have to deal with every day in normal life and is annoying, minor, mundane things, things that are so insignificant we would be embarrassed to write about it and seem like we're whining whiners who can't get through a day without complaining about tiny little things that kinda annoy you for a second and then you go and write anyway..
rambling on like an idiot is one, and over use of quotation marks is another..
ok those aren't what I'm focusing on today.
So, I did some shopping earlier, got my stuff, got in line to pay and the people in front of me were taking their time, #1 annoying thing, like most people I don't like being made to wait.. and they had all this stuff, and were taking up all the counter with it.. so they were done and I paid, but they were still there with all their stuff fiddling around with their change and chatting, not trying to be quick about it or anything, and I paid, then had to move on the other side of her to get my change and didn't have room to put my stuff away..
that was annoying. This in general is kind of a pet peeve. I really like to get all my stuff in a bag and out of there before the next person in line comes bearing down on me, I dunno.. I just feel like I'm taking up time and space if I'm not out of there quickly.. so, the sooner I'm done putting purchases and change and whatnot away, the better. I generally do it pretty quickly and don't have to worry about the next person breathing down my neck, not that they usually are, I reckon for the most part people don't care but I just like to be out of there quickly ok!!! I just do.

You know, we're lucky, I'm lucky to be surrounded by such talent, such genius, people who are willing to work with me and who are so eager to do so much... such greatness.
Now if only one or more of these people could ever be bothered to be like, around, and not too busy or too whatever to actually meet with me and do something.. that would be really great.
*doesn't grumble or whine or anything*

12 hours (or thereabouts) of daylight.. and then 12 (or something kinda closeish to that) of night. I think it works. Well that's what we should have today, it is the spring equinox (in the northern hemisphere) and well the other equinox in the other hemisphere, so pretty much everyone everywhere should be getting the same hours of light and dark.. not just us on the 50th parallel or whatever.. isn't that nice?
It's also pretty awesome that it's spring, officially.. or so they say and it was actually warm today. And I saw flowers.. little yellow blossoms, they're out. The yellow ones bloom much earlier than the others, I've found.
Happy Spring! (or autumn if that's what it is where you are, or happy another hot day if that's what it's like where you are).

It would be easier if I knew what the next step was.. there's so much still to organize and put in folders and update lists and...
scripts to be written, a backlog of stuff to be filmed which.. I'm still waiting for certain circumstances in my living condition to be changed before I do that.. I know, excuses excuses it's a poor one but it makes a difference! It makes a difference.
Ok, script writing. *wonders which thing to start with and what things do I have anyway*
I need to sort out all the things that need scripts, and I need to make a list, multiple lists, and put them in folders.
*wonders where to start with all this*

As part of these rehearsals I've been going to for this play that's on that I'll be in, we do a series of warm up exercises. I kind of like them, while sorta not liking them, but I like that I'm doing them. We do mostly the same stuff every week, with a few variations, and I've bee trying to do at least some stretches and whatnot every day, and only this past week did I succeed in doing them every day, I think it's helping.. slowly, but it's helping.

I haven't done this for a while, on the odd occasion I actually jot something down here, it's something personal and pointless, but, I used to have this thing, where I posted stuff that was er.. not so personal and pointless. One of them is a word.. you see, there are these words, and every day there is one. It's the word of the day, or as I like to call it..
dowager \DOU-uh-jer\ , noun:
1. An elderly woman of stately dignity, especially one of elevated social position.
2. A woman who holds some title or property from her deceased husband, especially the widow of a king, duke, etc.
1. Noting, pertaining to, or characteristic of a dowager:
Deeda Blair rhapsodized about the exquisite atmosphere of La Grenouille and La Caravelle, two of the leading temples of fine French cuisine, where she’d lunch with the dowager philanthropist Mary Lasker or the ubiquitous Nan Kempner in the early 1960s, when her husband, William McCormick Blair Jr., was J.F.K.’s ambassador to Denmark and they’d stop in New York on their way home to Washington.
-- Bob Colacello, "Here's to the Ladies Who Lunched!," Vanity Fair, Feb. 2012
She trusted the dowager, and respected her deeply. But that wasn't the issue.Which world was she living in? For the time being, that was the point.
-- Haruki Murakami, 1Q84
Dowager stems from the Latin word dotare meaning "to endow." In the middle French, it came to mean "pertaining to a dower," or the gift/payment that a wife's family gives her husband when they are married.

Another rehearsal today for one of the things I'm doing. I say one of the things I'm doing because I'm doing things, that is, things, more than one thing, thing plural.

You know, I'm almost getting used to this, this 3 humans 1 cat household, as opposed to the usual 2 humans 1 cat.. I have to make myself think about it to really think about it, it's just, how it is now. After a few weeks, almost a month, maybe a month.. it feels like something just always was, and will be for a long time still.

So, no new material to present as of yet, might be a while for a combination of a few different reasons, however.. large things are on the horizon. We've like, talked about it and made notes and planned meetings and everything! So watch this space. I mean, not now, I'll let you know when it's likely that something will be coming up but.. you know.
