Everything is splendid

Oh, everything is just so wonderful right now! Portland is filled with a fresh east wind and yellow leaves and slanty sunshine and horse-chestnuts.

After a perfectly fantastic visit from vampirefan (during which she got me addicted to both "Glee" and "Drop Dead Diva" because she is an evil fangirl and drives the crack van), I spent a whopping one day at work last week, not nearly enough to ruin my high.

Yesterday I treated myself to some new bed linens at IKEA: plum, raspberry, bronze and pumpkin, all stripey and cozy boudoir-ish, and they're out flapping in the breeze right now, enjoying their freedom from captivity in plastic wrappers. They make a nice (and probably meaningful) change from the taupe-black-white-gray I've had for the last couple of years.

I rode Clyde to Fred Meyer (local everything-store, two miles away) for a couple of small items yesterday, and it was so much fun that I did it again today. It's chilly enough to warrant riding gloves, and I have this vintage pair of hot-pink leather dress gloves, so I wore those. You know, for visibility. I forgot something and darn it, I need to go again!

I completed recording on the first chapter of my Podbang entry on Friday night. Since it's a "secret Santa" kind of thing, I can't say much about what I'm working on, but I can say that it's in the SPN fandom, it's VERY long, and there is music involved which I'm having indescribable amounts of fun with, all fading in, fading out, lining up--gah! I'm just in geek heaven!

So, life is good! Happy Autumn to my northern hemisphere friends.

:D! Yay! I love happy posts! And I'm glad everything is going well for you!

Such a lovely image. <3

I don't know quite what came over me. I just painted two walls in my bedroom purple for the hell of it. Things are VERY colorful in there now!

ha! never meant to get you addicted to drop dead diva!

i just watched all of glee again last night, with lunda. and now my sister and karla want to watch! lol!

there was one thing i noticed on this last rewatch! remember how henry (just say it in french) cut off his thumbs? and then ended up in the emergency room later when he relapsed (which is why he couldn't perform that night)? check out the audience when the guys are performing "i wanna sex you up". henry is over to the left and omg! he has a hook on one hand!! poor guy!

i can't wait for the podbang!

It's good to know that Glee is worth rewatching. I watched all 12 eps of DDD over the last few days--it just rang a bell with me I guess, because I can see its many flaws clearly, but I enjoyed it all the same.

Podbang is going to be AWESOME. There are 70 participants, multi-fandom, and the one criterion is "over 30,000 words". There's gonna b a LOT of good long podfic out there real soon.

It is--and it's a brilliant way to get more longfic out there in audio form. I learned a LOT doing yours, and it was my trial run, so next time I record one of your stories (if you'll let me), I'll do a MUCH better job.

Ooh really? I hope you give it a whirl! Most computers have a built-in microphone, and you could try recording with that, just to test. I don't know what sound editing software is out there for Linux, but I'm sure there's something. I'm just finding the whole process incredibly rewarding. It would be very cool to share it with you.

Somewhere in there, there are almost certainly microphone gain/input volume settings, and I'm guessing yours are turned off.

Hee! I think I might have gone a little overboard in the color department. The bedroom is like a seraglio now.
