Two more weekends of faire, and we can wrap KCRF 2013 2012 (apparently it's still 2012) in a bag.

Tomorrow's projected high for Bonner Springs: 54 degrees and cloudy. *sigh* Not as cold as 2009, when it was in the forties. Damn, that was miserable.

I have the fantastic body stocking that [ profile] tama_grey loaned me, but I won't make as much in tips if I'm wearing a body stocking. Also, I'm worried about dollar bills causing snags, etc. Tonight I'm touching up my roots (good god they're nearly an inch long), so will be stuck in my house for six hours. I'll spend some time digging through my old faire stuff to see if I still have any of those foot warmer things to stick in the toes of my boots. Too bad I don't have access out there to a water dispenser that has a hot water reservoir.

At least the cold weather gives me an opportunity to wear my awesome leather cap!

I am still tired tired tired. I'm pretty convinced this is more allergy- than adrenal-related. We're talking serious snoreway here, and it never lets up or cycles through the day like my cortisol-affected fatigue does.

Kiva put in some ear tacks yesterday on adrenal points, so I have four pretty gold studs in each ear for the next several days. Fun!

I'm going to do a WITL for real starting on Sunday.

Dr. Burt confirmed some sort of bacterial infection, so I'm on a Z-pack with a Diflucan chaser for the respiratory/sinus stuff. I'm also on massive doses of Allegra for the hives, and a big old tube of steroid cream for topical treatment. Here's hoping those all kick in by Saturday morning.

[ profile] mckitterick and I have had the unfortunate opportunity to engage in several recent conversations about systemic misogyny. Here is another example. This sort of thing happens every day, and it happens to women you know. I haven't experienced this sort of thing on a regular basis, but it's happened to me on several occasions and it never gets any easier to deal with. When are we going to stop telling our daughters "don't dress like that," "don't go out alone," "don't do this don't do that don't don't don't" and start telling our sons "don't do horrible things?" Will this ever happen in enough numbers to change our culture?

New Tumblr Collection. Wednesday, September 5: Black and White.

I'm not going to be able to keep up with the WITL project this week. It seems silly that I wouldn't have the energy for such a small thing as photos, but my health is really in the shitter right now and I barely have the energy to function, much less remember to take photos during the day. Sorry, y'all.

Update: Oh dear. One of the medications is not sitting well at all. I'm not sure that everything is going to stay down. Perhaps I should have eaten more with lunch? Less? Ugh. This is...unpleasant. I wish I wasn't at the office.

Update of update: Okay, everything stayed down and I'm feeling better, but exhausted.

Sunday and Monday's WITL posts are up, backdated.

Sunday here

Monday here
clevermanka: default (fullbody)
1. You must take between 6 and 8 new photographs per day.
2. Your WITL must be consecutive. No skipping days.
3. You must post your photographs at the end of that day, sometime after the last picture is taken. Not going to happen. I'll post mine the next morning.*
4. Each photograph must have the time taken beneath and a title, with no other explanation.

You must post these rules at your first entry, then link back to it for the other six days so that people will know wtf you're doing.

* Or whenever I can. Job duties come first!

Your post must say "A Week in the Life of [your name/username], Volume [whatever day you're on]." That's just silly. What? If you're looking at this post, you should know who's posting. And Volume? What?

And now, photos )

Sorry for the sporadic posting of the WITL photos. I'm not gonna edit photos on my dinky little netbook. Since I posted them as backdated entries, they probably won't show up on your F-page today. If you want to see them:

Pictures from Monday are here.

Pictures from Tuesday are here.

My Week In The Life photos are up from this weekend, but backdated. Saturday's entry is here. Sunday's entry is here.

We had such gorgeous weather out at faire this weekend. I was paranoid that my one weekend of dancing both Saturday and Sunday would be wet and miserable. But no! It was sunny but not too warm, and I got to wear the Anarchist Pirate Coat both days. I also wore the New Coin Costume which got rave reviews and I think I might just wear it (perhaps with switched-out skirts or something) for the last two Sundays I dance. I love it so much and it's just...sigh...perfect. I feel really good dancing in it.

Both days had great-sized crowds at Smoker, but Saturday's group was super stingy with the tipping. We had 120 people in attendance and my first set I made eighteen dollars in tips. Oh hell no, bitches. During the Musical Interlude between my first and second set, I told my drummers not to start until I signaled, because I had an announcement for the audience concerning their insultingly low tipping. I relayed the same information to [ profile] purpledumbass, who introduces me. When we were up for the next dance set, I delivered something along the lines of the following in my Big Theater Voice (which I never use anymore since I don't do theater, but some things are like riding a bicycle, you know?):

"I want you all to know that I have performed for audiences half the size of you all and received more tips than what you all delivered. So all you cheap bastards had better start tipping or I am not doing a third set. Understood? And to all my beloved consistent tippers..." and I kissed my zills and spread out my arms. "Got it?" Then a cocked a serious eyebrow at them, signaled my drummers, gave a big smile and started the second set.

I got more tips than I've ever received in one single set at Smoker ever during that set. I made thirteen dollars in bra tips alone (delivered by the serving wenches). The next day, people stopped me in the lanes to say they'd heard about my fit and thought it was awesome that I'd called people out on being penny-pinching assholes.

And yes, I was serious about not doing a third set.

I was going to write up an experience I had this morning that made me think my gaydar is strong enough that it functions on even a subconscious level. But this entry is already long enough, and what with the time I spent putting together the WITL posts, I'm gonna have to save that one for tomorrow. Come back tomorrow for the next exciting installment of My Life.

Edit: [ profile] indigodreamer just informed me that she found my Facebook page and was able to fan me. Heh. Heh-heh. Fan me. Anyway, apparently she could find my fan page, but not my personal account, so that is awesome. If anyone does find my personal account, please don't friend me. I won't be friending back since I'm not going to be using it for anything other than managing my Public Figure/Entertainer page. Thanks!

Holy shit, it's October. October, people. October.

I'm finally starting my WITL today. For serious and real. Pictures won't post until Monday, though.

I woke up early this morning, despite going to bed late, taking two Benedryls, and sleeping with my eye mask. I woke up early and I woke up hungry. Not cool. I'm a little swollen, too. Frustrating. I have a couple moxa sticks left, though, so I'm going to give myself a quick moxa treatment before I get dressed for faire.

You know what I love best about working Smoker? Well, besides the awesome Smoker crew and the tip money? I'm sitting here on the couch in my PJs, doing my Internets, and KCRF morning meeting starts in two minutes. That, my friends, is a good feeling.

I am excited that it's going to be cool enough today to wear the Anarchy Pirate Coat for the Saturday of Pirate Weekend. Tomorrow's probably going to be too warm for it, alas. But I get to wear it at least once, so yay!

I've had this song in my head since last night, so now I think you should, too:

I might do another Week In The Life, starting on Sunday. Anyone interested in doing one with me?

Edit: God. Looking back at the last WITL that I did? I was still drinking coffee. SOB

I didn't feel like futzing around with downloading these to and editing them on the laptop at home over the weekend, so the weekend's photos are backdated here and here.

Rules are here. Today's photos are here )
