Catnik, Sewing

Good Weekend

Saturday night I went out and saw Coraline with my roommate and 2 other mutual friends.  Everyone must go see this movie.  It is fantastic.  The end.

Tonight, my roommate and I went to see Cirque Du Soleil's Saltimbanco, and HOMG WAS IT AWESOME.  It was much funnier than the one I saw in Vegas; I was laughing so hard I was crying at some parts.  Also, the acts tre more traditional circus acts: juggling, bike tricks, but of course they had that wonderful Cirque twist to them that made them that much more amazing.  AND the vocalist was WONDERFUL.  She had a very clear soprano voice, not at all opera-y or strained sounding.  Her high notes were pure with very little vibrato.  In essence, she has the soprano version of my voice type (not saying I'm as good as a singer as her.  Most likely I'm not.  But this shows that Cirque likes to recruit people with my voice type: clear, bell-like, classical).  All the acts were amazing and, holy crap I wish I were in Cirque right now.  One day, my precious.  One day.

In other news, I'm totally getting a laptop this this weekend!  My roommate's boyfriend is coming to visit for V-day, and since he is a computer engineer, and I've been saving up for a few weeks now, AND he rarely comes to St. Louis, I feel this is as good a time as any to drag him to Best Buy to help me pick out my new computer.  I'm thinking I want a Toshiba.

In other, other news, my shiro JSK is (for reals) almost done.  I think 1-2 more hours on it, and it will be officially finished.  Then, I will make another petticoat, as all of mine are dying slow deaths of deflation now.  THEN I will start designing my Anthy gown.  Or maybe by then Chi and I can start on Val's dress!  Or SOMETHING, I just need to stay BUSY so I don't fall into a work-sleep-work rut.

In other, other, other news, there is a job fair at SLU coming up.  My dad has my resume (helping me work out the kinks) so maybe I'll take off work that day and start handing it out.  I can't work at the cafe forever, and the elementary school job ends on the last day of school.  Come May, I'll have to compete with all the other recent graduates, so I need to get my job NOW before it gets REALLY hard to find one.

In random news, I miss my lolita girls!  Who knew you could bond so quickly and completely with random strangers over a fashion?  The idea that one day soon we will all have to go our separate ways fills with a kind of quiet despair.
