The almost crying kind of tired

Wow. That was a looooong, hard weekend. After work, picking up photos from Stefan, and great Ethiopian/Middle Eastern dinner/dessert w/Paulette on Friday, I headed to spend the night with Cindy and Ivan so that Cindy and I could work on editing my VT performance on Saturday. Good lord, that was taxing. Mostly b/c their apt has too much dry heat going on, not b/c of the editing. Now that Cindy is a super pro, she edits like lightning, and does a really good job. We LAUGHED so hard when reviewing the footage - it was supremely bad, but also hilarious, like Blair Witch. It was shaky handheld camera work, dark, with a ridiculously squeaky door, and dark figures w/ski caps on (b/c it's cold in Jan in VT!). I told Cindy that she should cut a horror flick from my performance footage. But at least we were able to get something out of it.

I also did some hardcore organizing, brownie-from-scratch baking, and crepe making for them. There was uncomfortable futon sleeping and Australian Open watching and other errands. By the time I got home today, I thought I was going to drop to the floor from exhaustion. But I did come home to a new music stand, a package from Andrea (w/chalk line! Amazingly sweet, and a fantastic memory - she told me to get that a loooong time ago), and a package from Jacklyn (books that she made w/scraps that I sent to her!). I've been doing website updates for hours now and am about done.

Here is recent work.

Here are words.
Here is the performance (this is FUN).

Ooooooh, talk about dry heat! Remember VSC; that's probably why the video was shaky; Angelo was probably itching. I'll be glad to get home to the humidifier. But the paper dries quickly - when i can make it!

(I like today's Security Word: tapgoeti. Sounds like a species of small horned animal...)
