three. You’re a real hit at parties, but you’re
SO above karaoke.
What people love: You’re instant entertainment.
Unless you play the obo.

What I’ve discovered in my lifetime:

1. Campbell’s soup is nasty when undiluted.

2. Trucks are fabulous, and I look hot in one.

3. I cannot choose my favorite word, song, or movie.

4. Going to RU one can find a party any time, day or night.

5. That’s not always a good thing.

And last but not least, my most recent inane discovery…..

6. I seem to be forever ensconced in a world where I can only meet gay men.

Yeah, so about that last one…. I love my boys, more than you can know. But, sometimes you just want to have a man hold you who would go to bed with you, if you both consented. But no, I am locked into the “eternal fag hag” (good Lord, I hate that term… but here i guess it’s the only word that truly fits) role. Every man I know either is gay, has experimented, or will soon come out of the closet. Five men in the past month have come out to me. I must wear a sign on my forehead that says: ‘C’mon, here I am guys, the safe haven for all ass-revelers.’

You know, this entry is probably going to piss of most of my male friends, and if it does, sorry but too damned bad. You all know I’m opinionated, and not afraid to tell anyone like it is, and that’s why you love me. And you also know then, that I would never change a thing about any of you, but if any of you know any straight boys… really straight boys… would you mind sharing and not trying so damned hard to convert them? I swear at the rate you guys awaken people to their sexualities (or convert, as that has become the popular term), if you were all Mormon, you’d take over the freakin’ free world.

Ok, enough bitchy rambling… and that’s basically all this is. The hormonal rantings of a woman who just had her only real romantic interest just tell her he’s freakin’ gay… Man, every guy I’m with either hits me, leaves me for another woman, or tells me he’s realized he’s in love with one of my gay friends. I am just a winner. How great am I in bed? Lemme just tell you… I can turn ’em off of vagina forever. Alright, now I’m just feeling sorry for myself. Oh well, it’ allowed once in a while I think 🙂

The grass is always greener…

wherever I’m not. It’s wierd how much I miss SU. I miss random music theater majors belting no-name musicals in the halls. I miss being woken up by a drunken rendition of the “Queen of the Night” aria by a devo man. I miss going to Ruebush and not being able to find a practice room, so you sit on the green couches and talk to Peter, and feel better just because you got to commiserate with someone. I miss the stupid geese. I miss the smell of the campus before it rains. I miss walking to Apple Blossom Mall. I miss my Books-A-Million buddies. I miss small campus life. I miss not having to ask for directions on my own campus. I miss my sisters. I miss my small SAI chapter. I miss having a good relationship with the PMA chapter on campus. I miss my friends. I miss musicianship. I miss not being the only one wearing a scarf when it’s only 45 degrees outside. I miss walking everywhere. I miss Samm, and DJ, and Will. I miss musicals. I miss performance forum. I miss grad student recitals. I miss instrumental music. I miss being only five hours from New York. I miss going to D.C. once a week. I miss Mr. Shafer. I miss being in a good choir.

Yeah, I know I sound pathetic right now, but it’s just kinda sucky right now. Do you want to know what we’re doing in choir? The same shit I did in high school. “The Hallelujah Chorus,” “Alto’s Lament,” and some other stupid piece written by our director, that has absolutely NO harmonic integrity. Fucking I6 chords everywhere. Oh, IV-V-vi-V-I, cute. How orignial. And these people are a joke. If I have to hear “Ave Maria” sung in english one more f-ing time because they can’t do it in Italian or German, I am going to scream. Oh and did I mention that there are only five vocal practice rooms. But no matter cause there’s always one open. But they don’t have windows; so when nosy people want to know who’s singing, they simply open the door, effectively destroying whatever modicum of concentration onto which you were threadily hanging.

Oh well, it was my decision and I shall live with it. But I think I am going to be making a visit up to Winc. for Bach Handel. I miss real music. If any of you from SU read this, please send me musical thoughts 🙂

It’s been a while….

And I’m sure you all missed me so much. Didn’t you? Come on, humor me this once! Please? Ok fine, so not too much is going on down here in STD land. I’m finding out that RU’s reputation is well earned. But the boys are Cuuute!!

Umm…. what else? Oh yeah, if anyone from SU reads this, I would love to send some money or a blank CD to someone to get a copy of the Faure Requiem performance Matt directed last year. I never made a copy before I left. (PS, I’m planning on visiting sometime or another, so maybe I could just get someone to burn it for me while I’m up?)

Anyway, I got a new tattoo! I forgot about that. It’s a celtic knotwork square with a red and a white rose intersecting. And it’s on my very upper left thigh. I gotta tell you too, I’d rather get a tattoo than stub my freaking toe. I love ’em! And I can’t remember if I mentioned I FINALLY got my truck! I’ve been waiting a long time to pay this bad boy off… and I did! It’s a white F250, super duty with a utility body and a pipe rack (which I plan on removing when I can get a hold of some of my friends from high school who know how to do that kinda sh-tuff). So I am stylin’, and I gotta tell you guys, I feel so hot when I climb out of that thing in my pink stilettos!

So I guess I lied. A lot has happened since my last entry, but I can’t really find an eloquent way to relay them, so there you have it. No flowery sentiment, so intricate sentence structure… ‘just the facts, ma’am.’ (Did anybody get that? What? Nobody watches old sitcoms anymore? Dragnet… come on people!) OK, so I’m going now. Have a lovely day… I know I will, I have tomorrow off!!

Tonight I got to speak to an old friend… Rick Ingavo. And I am on cloud nine! So far, he’s been the only person truly supporting my goal of enlistment. I mean some people have tried, and they are being “supportive,” but I don’t think anyone really expects me to do this.

And Rick’s doing great! I think. I really hope he’s not just trying to put on a brave face for the people at home. But he says he’s fine, and I’ll believe him until I have reason not to. And the guys from Winc. Co. were from his unit. And he knew them, so I had reason to be worried. And a great big “so there!” goes out to everybody who thought that couldn’t have happened anywhere near our Winc. reservists.

I gotta tell you, I really needed that encouragement. Not that  my resolve was slipping. No in the slightest. But it’s hard to go against the wishes of everybody you know. So knowing someone out there is rooting for me helps. Ya know? So Rick, thanks. And take care of yourself. Come home safe.

Besides that, I guess things are going ok around here. I’m having a hard time accepting the fact that so many of my ‘friends’ don’t believe in me. So I’m trying to distance myself as much as possible. Which won’t be hard, because I left almost all of them in Winchester. I still want to talk to my sisters, but even that is hard, because I don’t know how the new me would be welcomed into the sisterhood. But I think I may be underestimating my sisters. That after all is the definition of sisterhood: it brings together people who otherwise wouldn’t ever become close.

So now after all that meandering from subject to subject, I am finally going to bed, before I spin into another disconnected thought. Goodnight all, and once again, a big thanks to Rick for showing me that some people still believe in my potential.
