Vote for "Clown Doctoring" [Oct. 26th, 2009|02:24 pm]

Hi Chaps

It would be really kind if you could vote for this very worthy cause to help Fools for Health gain a grant to continue their work. They do "Clown Doctoring" (Patch Adams style) to cheer up sick children and poorly adults in hospital.

It does not matter if you are outside Canada, your vote still counts. Vote everyday, it all helps.

Many thanks for your support.

Hugs

Me – back from Kiltland, had a brilliant holiday. Gill and I found Doune castle by accident, they filmed Monty Python and the Holy Grail there – Terry Jones does the voice for the audio tour with lots of Python references and clips for the film. And they let you borrow coconut shells so you can do the horse clip-clop sound effects for yourself – all very, very silly and great fun. http://www.undiscoveredscotland.co.uk/doune/dounecastle/



Went to a pagan festival, very much like any other fandom, but with Earth worship.

Had Reiki healing, gods know how it works, but I felt better afterwards.

Also got shat on by a seagull in Glasgow outside an art shop – I felt sorry for Gill who had to clean all that green slime off my hair/me.

Got the tattoo I’ve been meaning to get for 36 years – very pretty butterfly on my thigh… and it hurt! Don’t ever let anyone tell you it doesn’t.

Ate lots of haggis (I do actually like haggis, so this is a good thing).

Bought lots of Scotch butter tablet (crystalline fudge), which was wonderful (note the word “was” is in the past tense… have munched it all!)

Watched lots of Christopher Lee Hammer “Dracula” films – gods that man was sexy.

Introduced Gill to “The Murdoch Mysteries”, she is now hooked (thanks Donna for lending me the DVDs).

Gill showed me “On the Moon” which is a totally nuts animation series, you gotta see it, really funny, here’s the Wikipedia notes http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/On_The_Moon

Saw lots of Goth shops in Glasgow. Lots of alternative culture to be found in Glasgow, and much nicer than the city’s old reputation.

Drove my SatNav insane in Edinburgh, they are building a tram network, so lots of roads closed, poor SatNav could not cope… not good when we were trying to buy petrol and it found 2 petrol stations which had been demolished. New holiday rule, when you pick up the hire car, fill it up with petrol before you go anywhere!

Could only understand about every 3rd word of Glaswegian… even after 9 days away! I need subtitles!

My pretty tattoo:

Huzzah, Break Out the Champagne, Free at Last [Feb. 13th, 2009|11:21 am]

The decree Absolute has finally been issued... the court got the decree Nisi wrong the first time.

So I am finally free of that squalid little man. Now just waiting for the tight-wad to pay up (considering the court agreement was for him to do so last May, don't hold your breath).

Time to party.

Will be organising lots of fun things this year to celebrate my 50th birthday. Paris was lovely last weekend, saw lots of stuff I have not seen before and some stuff I had not seen for 30 years.

Wanna go to the Spring event in Wincanton.

Time for fun, fun, fun and frolics.

Oh, and I made my first stage appearance last week in our production of "Wyrd Sisters". I can now officially put "crowd" on my theatre CV along with foley artist (for "Table Manners" I had to drop a bunch of noisy things to recreate the sound of a tray crashing, continuity person (prompt), publicity officer, assistant armorer (chest plates made out of papier mache and chain mail made out of garden wire), costume maker (4 shirts and 4 cloaks - the cloaks are brilliant, they really swish when you walk), prop person and stage-hand.

The props were the hardest job - I volunteered for that one before the director told me he wanted to serve 4 (count them, 4!) meals on stage during the course of the play...the memory still gives me the eeeks! Thank god I had some super help from Lynne & Nigel.

Also, Stage Hand is very stressful (especially with me being accident prone) trying to move furniture and props around in the dark silently is tough, however our Anne did a brilliant job, even though she is quite petite she was lugging the wooden stocks off and on stage single handed. Adrian, the guy who is an angel and volunteers to be our Stage Manager each time is totally wonderful at keeping us all organised and getting the right thing on stage at the right time. I will not be volunteering for stage-hand again. But I feel I need to get experience in all these areas before I direct, so it will be sound and lighting next, and I am going to audition for a speaking part - but am dreading learning lines... and forgetting them immediately. One of our actresses used to be a pro, and she teaches acting so I am going to ask her to give me lessons in voice projection etc.

All great fun. Hope you are all well and happy.

Big hugs
Karen

Had a wonderful time a the Discworld Convention and at Wadfest, it was absolutely wonderful seeing everyone again. I miss you all lots and lots, hope you all got home okay.

I have been trying out Facebook, but basically it is not as much fun as LiveJournal, all the best people are here.

Hearing very positive reviews of Terry Pratchett's Nation, once I finish my Dresden Files: Fool Moon book by Jim Butcher I'll be reading Nation.

Last Saturday I went to see the Dr Who Exhibition at Earl's Court (for the 2nd time) and it is even better than I remembered. Lots of brilliant stuff from series 1, 2 and 3. And they have extended the time it is on, so if you haven't had a chance to see it, do go.

I've got a varied week this week: Thursday I go to Wendy, my best friend from school's graduation - she junked her IT career to take a degree in horticulture and got a 2:1, so we are all incredibly pleased for her. Sunday Wendy and I are going on a 50km sponsored bike ride... for which the weather has been too bad to train (or we've been too bad to train), so Sunday is going to be a little bit challenging.

Next week we have open auditions for our next production, Terry's Wyrd Sisters, should be pretty entertaining... especially if my legs are killing me after the 50km biking!
