Life is good and bad sometimes. ^^;

I titled this post I am so drunk right now because I am.  So, so drunk.  :)  No, that calls for a very happy face.  :D

So I'm posting for the first time in months, even, because I love ethnomusicology.  LOVE it.  And I wrote my first paper in that class on Stephen Collins Foster.  You know the guy, Oh Susanah, My old Kentucky Home, Beautiful Dreamer, Camptown Races, etc.  And I am up tonight because I feel like it.   And I feel like being drunk right now, so I am.  And while I've been up, drunk, I'm watchin anything on tv that catches my eye.  

Right now it's Phil of the future, on Disney, because the guy is cute and the theme is catchy.  And while I was watching, the guy ended up singing while taking a bath, "Way down upon the swanee river"  and proceeded to sing the entire first verse.  on national cable.  WTF.  That is the fucking impact Stephen Foster has had on our society.  :D  I feel so validated, especially since the kids in my class, when I gave the presentation, didn't know him but of course knew his music.  SO VALIDATED.  

That is all.

Christmas cards went out today.

Also, thank you, Andrea, for your previously prolific recommendations for froufrou.  I saw an amv that used "Must be dreaming" a week ago and on a whim looked up the group.  I remembered what you'd said about them before, and I bought the Details album.  I LOVE IT.  That is all.  It is truly a musically freeing listening experience.  :)

Love to you all.  *mwah*

In light of recent happenings, I thought I would let you all know of a book I've been reading.

I never really thought of myself as a feminist; I consider myself more of an advocate for women's rights.  That may be the modern feminism, I don't know for certain.  But more and more, with all of the fog surrounding our college (and we can write it off all we want, R-MWC will always be a part of us-not RC, but the school it was and what parts of it that won't change- beloved professors, classrooms, buildings, grounds), I have found a fire within myself that I did not know was there.  It's a fire to be more and do more so that someday I can be of help to my sisters.  

And so I bought a little book.  It is little, too, but its message is big.  It's red and thin and written by a professor of philosophy and women's studies, Linda Hirschman.  Its title is Get to Work: A Manifesto for Women of the World.
The book is fascinating.  I'm gobbling it up and I'm hungry for more.  But, I have to warn some of you, much like my faith does for me (and I do not think that faith should be some easy lovey-dovey comfortable thing to believe and do), it makes me itch.  I mean that it makes me uncomfortable.  I don't agree with everything she says, but for most of it I feel like shouting, "Right on!"  And because I find myself agreeing, I also find that I feel I should be enacting the changes she advises and encourages.  Unfortunately, I really like where I am right now, too.  So what to do?

All in all, it is a good and thoughtful read.  For the most part I find it encouraging.  And I want every woman I know to read it.  And every man.  And I think any girl worth a damn will find herself nodding at most of what she says.  :)  Have fun, friends.  Read up.

I totally want one.  I am spending my money without recourse to grad school.  Whatever shall I do?  

*sigh*  This sucks.  

On another note, Brandy, Amy, expect packages (albeit small packages) very soon!

I have ordered my ren garb for the wedding of the year!  So happy.  A will be wearing a kilt and I will be in a French overdress.  Our couple will be a la Braveheart, except a different time period.  :)  I'm pretty happy.  More updates to come.  Love!

I am so saddened by all the changes I see happening around me, especially to my friends.  I felt like posting these lyrics.  I feel they describe what's been happening to some of these people.  I apologize for the presumption, and I love you all.

Where do we go from here?
This isn't where we intended to be.
We had it all, you believed in me.
I believed in you.

Certainties disappear.
What must we do for our dream to survive?
How do we keep all our passions alive
As we used to do?

Deep in my heart I'm concealing
Things that I'm longing to say.
Scared to confess what I'm feeling,
Frightened you'll slip away...
You must love me.
You must love me.

Why are you at my side?
How can I be any use to you now?
Give me a chance 
And I'll let you see how nothing has changed.

Deep in my heart I'm concealing
Things that I'm longing to say.
Scared to confess what I'm feeling,
Frightened you'll slip away.
You must love me.
You must love me.

You must love me.

You went trick or treating as Orco.
Detritus gave you AMagicEightBall.

No one who rides the metrorail is any great lover of humanity.

I have a date to talk to my bestfriend tonight. The one I haven't seen in five years. Suck. But I'm excited. I called her at work last night so we could set up a time and I think she was miffed. She didn't say she loves me. *whine* I miss you, Leia.

I have two months until I move out of my first apartment and leave my first big person job. It's poignant to think of things that way, especially in this season. After all, I moved in during this season, my favorite but also one of the most emotional for me, was proposed to in it, heard the news about my grandmother and Chandler, and started the growth into adulthood process. It's been a big year and I'm sorry to leave it, but I'm going onto to even better things. Grad school is going to kick ass. :) I started to cry thinking about it the other night, but I was crying because I'm happy. Even though parting will be bittersweet, it's for such a good reason. I feel like maybe my emotional maturity is finally catching up to the facade of my outer personality and presentation. Cool.

My mom totally posted money to my bank account after my sister blabbed that I was worried about paying for groceries. I love my family. <3

I am also excited about upcoming events: my dress is almost finished, Sarah's b-day, Halloween, visits to SU, and finishing my first knitting projects. So awesome. I think I'll be a Disco Bandit for Halloween. :) Also, to my Circle friends, I would like to celebrate Samhain. Are there any little things I could do that would be easy for me to do on my own? Special foods, music, small rituals?

Thank you, Andrea, for this introduction to spontaneous stupidity. I'm looking forward to it. My handle is "bushy."

A and I will be in the Burg this weekend, arriving approximately 10:00AM Saturday and leaving Sunday morning. We don't have solid plans yet because I'm going to try to meet with some profs, but keep an eye out for us. If you want to see us, comment here and I'll try to keep a running tally. I know we're both extremely popular people. (Whatever. :) )

Friend me!

Hey, everyone! I am now on facebook. I'm excited about it, anyway, although I still won't be able to join the RMWC network (which it will soon be impossible to join anyway, right?). But enough gloom and doom.

It's been 2 years. Happy anniversary, Darling.

Happy Birthday, Liz!

I hope it's a good Fall day for you. ^^

Also, last night my sis and I went to see the NSO. So pretty! They played Walton, Brahms, and...Copland! I got to hear Appalachian Spring live. Very, very nice. And the concerto they played was a violin, with Gil Shaham playing the solo. He is quite the performer. Wonderful energy, facial expression, and movement. He actually jumped around a few times while playing! It was bizarre, but good.

In addition, I am sick.
