Have I mentioned that I'm feeling a mite distracted today? Hm?

Tonight is shooting a couple of scenes at Casa de Bruno. I need to remember the glass. Looks like it's going to be raining tonight, so lighting may be a bit funky: I need to light from outdoors coming in.

Wednesday & Thursday I have "off". Wednesday looks like it's going to be raining all day so I may not get to work on the porch, but Thursday looks to maybe hold off on the downpour.

Depending on circumstances, I might use Wednesday to do some cleaning. The Big Broken Box™ could use it, though it's a bit like pissing in the wind.

Consider that:
  • Barb is moving out in the glacial sense, so there's still a bunch of her stuff left

  • Rick has moved out, but there's still some of his stuff left

  • Sasha just moved out this last weekend, and there's still some of her stuff left

  • A lot of stuff from the garage sale didn't sell, and is still in the living room

  • I moved in a few months ago, and I still haven't unpacked all of my stuff

And then there's the several months of pets having more or less the run of the house. It's not a pretty sight.

Truthfully, I haven't felt like it was home since I moved back. It's still just the Big Broken Box™, and it's midstream to a whole lot of flux. And I've been a little rudderless since I got back, too. Lots of reasons I suppose, but none so big as me just not grabbing the big stick and steering.

I've kinda been putting off a lot of the indoor stuff until winter, seeing as the front porch work is a touch more critical, and the concrete needs to be poured before it gets too cold. But you know, I'm gonna be having company over at some point, and I'd really like for them not to die.

Eventually, I'm going to need new furniture. The college-dorm-frathouse stuff that I have now is serviceable, and actually works quite well when it's primarily supporting small furry critters, but when we're talking about humans, it would be nice to have something a little less white trash.

And I need a real dining room table. And curtains.

I suspect that I will be doing a lot of sewing in the next year or so. I should probably consider getting a real sewing machine instead of the cheapie toy one that I picked up at Target last year, but you know I'd have to get a man's sewing machine and not one that's all girly frou-frou.

(Yeah, okay... sewing curtains isn't exactly brain surgery, and my machine will work just fine. I just had to poke a little fun at my manly sewing friends. But really, the Pfaff is just cool.)

And I know that I need to create an artwork for the final touch above the fireplace. Not sure what it will be quite yet, but I have an idea or two.

As for now, I'm in quite a state of flux. Lots of stuff happening, lots of stuff changing. It's kind of like I'm morphing into the next level or something.

Now if I can just keep it happening.

    So I get home tonight, and I think I hear the phone in the living room ringing. Funny, because it's on the same circuit as the one in the bedroom,…

    It finally happened. It had to, really. I was in the bottom two cut from LJ-Idol this week. I made it to the top 50, from some rather larger…
