Holy lord. Anyone outside the network of people who know I’m still alive would come to this blog and think, “Dang, she had nose surgery, ran around in a moustache-bandage, went back to bed…
and was never seen again, y’all.”
Never to fear, the nose recovery went swimmingly and I came out of all that just fine. My disappearance from Blog Land was due to a cacophony of activity, more than anything else. Since that fine moustachioed morning I have:
-Recovered from schnoz surgery and experienced a 12-year-old’s delight in the crazy shit that came out of my nose during all of that.
-Rehearsed and memorized lines and prepared for an Avistrum show in Colorado.
-Travelled to Colorado for the first time in 2 years, and had an epic reunion with many beloved tribe members, who I also have not seen in 2 years.
-Returned to New Orleans with two friends in tow, who were here for their annual Halloween visit. Had many fun times over the course of a week with them, including but not limited to a visit to the last year of House of Shock, the Krewe of Boo Halloween Parade, their first Saints game with pudding shots at the Upper Quarter, Halloween at a vampire event dressed as the Cheshire Cat, and much FQ carousing.
-Taken a 2-day hermitage to clean my house (it so needed it), to ready the abode for some visitors, who I ALSO had not seen in 2 years.
-Passed a whirlwind couple of nights catching up with these wonderful gals.
-Attended the first of many meetings to establish more plans with the new marching group – we WILL be hitting the streets during Mardi Gras!
-Paid a visit to Ren Faire up in Hammond
And of course, I’ve been working profusely at the day job through the course of ALL of this.
Truly, an epic whirlwind that I would never go back and change, not for the entire universe.
Of course, this means that there is much to write about and much to share.
So I better git on it.
