creative time vampire

so i'm on a drug for the depression. and it seems to have also conquered what i used to call simultaneous multitasking, but in reality, ADD is prolly what it is.
this is good. it allows me to focus long enough to clean. but it's also bad, because doing one thing for so long wears me out. and organizing is tiring.

also, i'm not remembering my dreams anymore. which is fantastic because my whole life i've had extremely vivid nightmares and unpleasant dreams. i was waking up anyhwere from 6-10 times a night, usually frightened of the demon i was just hangin' out with in the bar, or the dead body i'd discovered under my car which was only the head of a baby and a body of a snail. stuff like that. it'd take me hours to fall asleep at night, and once i woke up, more time to fall back asleep.

so that alone is great. but i haven't had the desire, or the time it seems, to sit down and MAKE. and the days when i don't make anything, i feel a little funny.

i've been seeing some really amazing things out there on the internet that make me feel like a suck for not keeping up with my jewelry and yarn spinning and collage and what have you. so i'm going to try to set aside creative time once again. an hour a day that cannot be spent cleaning, rehearsing, working, eating, walking etc. can only be spent MAKING.

contest! whoopee!

The super cool glampyre is having a design contest. Here's my entry-a kimono style sweater made of lace. I think it'd be gorgeous. I dig the deep colors, and it's unusual to go from light to dark on top. As the pic says, it's inspired by two things I found on Knitty-the Kyoto Sweater, and the Branching Out scarf. Could I knit this thing? Hope so.

rainy days and mondays always get me down

it's monday. it was rainy today. bummer.

we cast our fringe show over the weekend, but then some peeps dropped out.
that's not as bad as the other show i'm werkin' on, where the stage manager, assistant director, and 4 actors have dropped. oh, and it opens in less than a month. whoopee!

the rain seems to have stopped. i'm going on a walk.

oh. but this is the funniest thing I've seen in months.
