There are moments in which a person's growth is done voluntarily. And then there's the trial by fire. With job hunting, I don't have the luxury of being wary of calling people on the phone. It's one of my least favorite activities. I dread it at every opportunity. Had to shrug it off to survive multiple phone screenings.

This is for [livejournal.com profile] rigel, since our LJ friends lists do not overlap completely. It used to be my old place before I moved in with [livejournal.com profile] hammercock:

EDIT: I have been informed that the opening in this part is still a huge maybe. They're trying to see if they can work something out.

One bedroom possibly opening in beautiful apartment in heart of Porter Square. All residents friendly, responsible, fun and geeky! Rent scales based on bedroom size and would be (I believe) either $750 or $800/month. If this happens, there will be a move-in date of September 1. Link to pictures included.

Please feel free to point others at this page! We'd prefer people we know if at all possible.

More about the place )

If this sounds like your cup of tea, please feel free to reply to [livejournal.com profile] rigel. Thanks for reading, and they look forward to hearing from you!

ABOUT THE PLAY: "Dracula"
Original novel by Bram Stoker
Adapted for the stage by John Mattera
Directed by Michael Babish

Theatre@First is proud to bring an adaptation of the 1897 Bram Stoker classic Dracula to the stage this February. A dramatic presentation of the gothic tale, Dracula tells of the tale of an ancient foe whose charisma hides a horrific evil. Can the efforts of the few mortals who know the truth stop him before he takes not only their lives, but their very souls?

The performance takes the audience from the mountains of Transylvania, across the seas and to the very heart of Victorian London. The story weaves action, horror and romance together with a surprise or two.

The cast includes the very talented newcomer Ronald Lacey as Dracula, Jamianne Devlin (Proof, EMACT Dash award nominee) as Renfield, Marty Seeger (Big Broadcast of 1938) as Lucy and Somerville’s own Tom Champion as Dr. Seward.

Reserve your tickets early! Seating is limited.

My friend taura_g is still trying to make her goal so that she can join [personal profile] hammercock and [livejournal.com profile] kimberlogic to participate in the upcoming Breast Cancer 3-Day in Washington, DC, over the Columbus Day weekend.

[livejournal.com profile] treatsfortits is a joint project to help this.

We are running a baked goods auction with a silent auction format. Each item will have its own entry in this journal. Each item has a minimum bid. If you're interested in purchasing this item, put a bid -- at least $1 above the previous bid, if any, please -- in the comments. Bidding will close at 10a. on Monday, September 28th. Winners will be notified via email & LJ comment.

At the close of the auction, we'll notify the winning bidders and ask them to donate the price of the goods via taura_g's donation page, whereupon they will be free to pick up the goods at the GLSE on Wednesday, Sept. 30. (If you are not local and would like to bid, talk to us about mailing the items to you, which should be fine as long as they don't require refrigeration.)

Bid early and often!

So far you can choose from:

2195: "Ponyo": I found about this at Worldcon. Saw it with all of GLSE at the Kendall Square Cinema. It's not Totoro, but at least it had more plot than "Steamboy". What concerned me was the lack of backstory on some of the underwater characters, especially Ponyo's mother. Also, it was probably a poor decision to have Liam Neeson voice an androgynous character. It's still cute.

Rather betray fuck buddy, flunk math, and embrace status quo than have my face gnawed by rats. So there, already.

I should probably core dump this while I still can since memories are fading.

I still remember 2007 in Yokohama with [livejournal.com profile] hammercock, in which we partied with the Montreal bidding committee. It was no contest between Montreal and Kansas City for 2009. Having said that, we prepared for weeks to have a great time since we missed last year's con in Denver.
This time, I will be with more people I knew in a more familiar city. I was in Montreal over 8 years ago and fell in love with the environment. A few things have changed since (like the exchange rate and my marital status).

Thursday:
We left early in a caravan with [livejournal.com profile] noire and J to avoid any rush hour traffic before hitting the border. NOTE: Always fill the fuel tanks in Vermont before crossing the border. Unfortunately, we were near the Montreal city limits by 5pm, so it took over an hour to travel 5km. Nonetheless, we were able to check in to our hotel by 7pm. We had the luxury of having our hotel right across the street from the convention building. It was convenient for panels and lectures but not for parties since the official party hotel was blocks further away.
After check-in came the common problem of trying to catch-up and coordinate with everybody at the con. Too many schedules; too little time. It ended up being a small dinner mob of 4 with [livejournal.com profile] hammercock, [livejournal.com profile] noire and J where they were kind enough to indulge me with a piece of nostalgia. One of the places I remembered eating 8 years ago was a Polish restaurant called Stash Cafe in the Old Port. It introduced me to pirogis, and I fell in love with the area. Very European with wonderful food. With each sight, smell, sound, and taste, an old memory resurfaced. There were a lot of, "Oh yeah, I DID THAT!" Try the duck, beer, and wine there. Stay for the old-style architecture. After that, we parted for parties until 4am.

Self-deprecation should not be made into an artform.

2193: "Coraline": I saw the Friday screening at Worldcon. In theory, it was following an introduction by Neil Gaiman. Unfortunately, [livejournal.com profile] hammercock and I missed that. (I'm still trying to remember what we did that evening. Dinner? Where? I remember what she was wearing. I remember the afternoon with [livejournal.com profile] noire, but not much else. Reminds me of movie #2194.) The screening took almost an hour long due to technical difficulties. If there was such a thing as an anti-ad, it would be for a Blu Ray player. Thankfully, someone got the DVD version before the entire audience stormed out.
To be honest, this was the most I've been immersed with Neil Gaiman fiction with the exception of seeing [livejournal.com profile] sweetmmeblue as Death. Almost like a reverse Nightmare Before Christmas. Remind me never to piss off the cat.

2194: "The Hangover": I just saw this less than an hour ago. It's so wrong, but in a good way. Between this and "He's Just Not That Into You", Bradley Cooper perfects the Smooth Operator role. This movie brags not one but two Daily Show alumni. Ed Helms handles the Nerd-coming-out-of-shell role well. I fear that Rachael Harris will be typecast as the Frosty Bitch for a while. Even Mike Tyson was funny.

Eventually, there will be:
A core dump
Detox
A sanity check

Now, off to my squishy bed.

2191: "300": I finally saw it as it was saved on our Tivo. It did look like a video game

2192: "Harry Potter and the Half-Blooded Prince": Though I never read the books, I knew enough of the story to know already how it ended. Now, I'm just trying to wait until 2010 and 2011 for the final films.
trowa_barton101: (Default)
2189: "Boys and Girls Guide to Getting Down": Funny. I saw this on cable. The format reminded me of Hitchhikers.

2190: "3 Blind Mice" Chewie film with Edward Furlong. Imagine witnessing a murder via webcam. Not going into details due to personal kinks.

Never read literary criticisms of a play before seeing said play.
