Last night, I saw MIT's Musical Theater Group perform Jesus Christ Superstar. I had never seen any performance (including movie) of this musical before, and this was a damn good show. Judas will blow you away, Jesus is right behind him (...snerk), [livejournal.com profile] usernamenumber was a great Pilate, and DocGreg's Herod was...surprising. ;)

I really suggest you go. It's playing for one more weekend, and it's so worth the $15. http://web.mit.edu/mtg/www/TicketReservations.html

A few hours ago I broke up with [livejournal.com profile] usernamenumber.

I ask that if you know him, go offer him some hugs. Then, if you have some to spare, I'll take a few too.

It's hard to figure out how to start this post. So I'll go with the trite and simple: today something momentous happened to me. It was a fairly normal day as far as actual events go, but as far as me internally, this day needs a big black X on the calendar. I don't know if relating it will make sense to anyone else, but here we go:

My Sunday D&D game ended early, meaning I could show up to [livejournal.com profile] faerieboots's a cappella group's concert only a little bit late instead of missing most if not all of it. I got there about 30-45 minutes in. There was a song or two, and then two of the members, the lead female and the only male, stood up front and announced, "This song is about the future," and began singing.

It's hard to describe the next few minutes. At some point early on I realized there were tears running down my face. Someone took me and who I am and my hopes and dreams and worldview and understood it all and wrote it into a song. I write and erase over and over here, and maybe I should just stop there with that description and link you to the song.

http://adapalmer.com/sassafrass/somebodywill.html

When the song ended and I had dried off my tears, I turned to usernamenumber and said, "Well, I'm done." I consider the $14 I paid to get into that concert to solely to be paid for that song. (I still stayed for the rest of the concert, and it was pretty awesome stuff, but I had been put through the wringer by that track and nothing else got as close.) When the show ended, I checked their CD's tracklist, saw the song on it, and ran out of the venue to find an ATM so that I could have cash to purchase the CD. After I returned, I found out from [livejournal.com profile] faerieboots that the female vocalist of that performance was the one who wrote the song. I approached her. I told her that the nearly-$30 I had just spent I considered solely for the purpose of that song, and that it was not nearly enough in comparison to what that song existing means to me. She responded immediately with, "Would you like the sheet music?" So now I have the arrangement for alto and tenor. Just... bampf.

I am sad to find that the album cut is a solo version and not as powerful as the live duet, but I can still sing along to it, and with the music and Ada's blessing I can take it and make it my own, and I am a different person for having this opportunity.

So that's what happened to me today.

Good things:
  • I found a DVD copy of Cast a Deadly Spell for $25 thanks to a probably ten-year-old alert list on Half.com. This makes four copies of the movie I own now, but this one is the most permanent+legal.
  • I woke up early on time this morning and took a long, luxurious shower instead of the rushed ones I normally take, and have time to sit and write this LJ post.
  • In two weeks from today, I will be financially recovered from the move at least as far as various payments causing me to live paycheck-to-paycheck, and will be able to get back on my (now slightly modified) plan to Get Out Of Debt By the end of my 30th year.

    I was preparing to leave work and head home in the rain when [livejournal.com profile] crazybone, perhaps informed by [livejournal.com profile] hakamadare of my "what's anyone doing later tonight" tweet, called me up to invite me to dinner at Area 52, which was (due to whatever) actually going to occur late enough for me to make it there. So I joined [livejournal.com profile] chaiya, [livejournal.com profile] hakamadare, [livejournal.com profile] crazybone, [livejournal.com profile] noeltheone, [livejournal.com profile] civic_oracle, and two others I know first names of but not LJ names in eating a delicious dinner and talking about all sorts of things, often ending up in the scientists in the room swapping interesting chemical and medical and beyond-my-ken stories. I found it weird to be at a party wherein someone utters the phrase, "Oh, have I told you the phenylthaline story?" and [livejournal.com profile] londo wasn't there.

    Then I found out that while I was offline, [livejournal.com profile] usernamenumber snuck into my house (he has keys from back when I moved in and needed someone nearby to let technicians in when they had to come set up phone lines and things), left me food from the Garden Grille, and found the package I thought I had completely lost to FedEx incompetence.

    So basically this is a post to say my friends are awesome and I shouldn't forget this.

    There was Intercon! Intercon was really great for me this year. I was only in two games and enjoyed them both (though definitely one more than the other), I had a fantastic birthday night thanks to [livejournal.com profile] etherial's hosting skills and a slew of friends who showed up to wish me and [livejournal.com profile] shadowravyn and [livejournal.com profile] rosinavs happy birthday, I got a surprise card in my con packet from someone anonymous and a surprise present from [livejournal.com profile] usernamenumber, and today [livejournal.com profile] londo organized an amazingly fun Dead Dog followed by naptime with usernamenumber and then some celebration with online friends.

    I am feeling so happy and lucky in my friends right now.

    This was an amazing Arisia.

    I didn't have a night I got to bed before 5, and each morning I had to start my staff shift at 9. A couple of naps Saturday and Sunday evenings supplimented. Glad I'm not driving or operating heavy machinery today.

    I didn't go to a single panel. I went to movies and dances, circus performances, and my own performance with Second Shift. I reconnected with old friends and connected for the first time with new ones.

    More later as I decompress and discuss. <3

    This'll be quick - it's time to head to Arisia!

    Repo last night was awesome yet again. I love being in a crowd that gets so worked up over something. I caught a lot of things in the movie I hadn't previously that made it flow better, too. No amazing shouts from me this time, though a bunch of people now stole my line-of-awesome from last time. And there were a few awesome new ones from the crowd, too.

    Unfortunately it's hard for me to gauge how awesome my outfit was because I pretty much walked in and walked straight into someone wearing a version that involved about 10x the amount of money I put into mine. Hers was NOT borrowed boots and sewn-by-hand feathers, and it looked amazing and pwned me completely. So all sense of my badassery just kind of melted away - I mean, sure I still looked good, but not like THAT. But don't worry, I still got pictures and I will share them. (And when I went up to Terrance, the writer, in the lobby, he still immediately knew which character I was and was enthused by my prepwork. So there ya go.) I think I'll be wearing it Sunday night at Arisia for the Repo showing then, but not doing Masquerade with it. As I said, sense of badassery gone.

    Heading off to Arisia now. Today I'm working Info Desk from 12-4, then taking a little break, and then in the evening.. I'd like to have time off to enjoy the Circus Dance and other fun things, but I HAVE NO VOLUNTEERS COVERING INFO DESK. Growl. So I might be stuck there instead. Come say hi!

    Last night, pre-pondered but not pre-planned, I had a date with [livejournal.com profile] usernamenumber. We both had a good time. At some point there will be another.

    I wish it were that simple.
