Friends Only

I've finally switched my journal over to friends only. If you'd like to add me as a friend, go right ahead. I only ask that you comment on this post so that I can friend you back.

P.S. Despite what it looks like, this is a regularly active journal. I have become a lurker in the extreme. I'm perpetually signed in to LJ but I very seldom post anything these days. I'm trying to get better though. Please don't be discouraged by the perceived actual lack of posts. :-)

That multi-week period of time where Opera eats my life


This whole "post once a week" thing hasn't been working out so well.

In my defense, last week we started our daily rehearsals for the yearly January opera performance at my Uni. These rehearsals are five to six hours long, and have been starting late in the evening because the Spring semester courses for this year also started last week. Personally I think the timing/scheduling for everything could have worked out a lot better, but nobody ever asks the students about it, because it's not like we're the ones who are actually affected by everything.

This semester's opera has been both easier and harder than usual. It's been easier because it's Mozart, and timing-wise, there are large periods of time where people rotate on/off stage, so not everyone has to be on stage all the time. So there's a decent amount of downtime between times I'm actually singing, given that I'm only in the chorus this year.

On the other hand, since we're doing The Magic Flute, the chorus is only on stage 3 times, and all of them are at the end of each Act, so I get to spend roughly 45 minutes after the start of Act One doing nothing. And the same thing happens during Act Two except the chorus is on at the halfway point for a teen tiny period of time.

So, I'm frightfully bored when I'm not prepping to go on stage, and there's only so much homework one can do without access to hard copies of books that can't leave the library.

EDIT: And it's been use a long fucking day I can't spell. Also I'm about to punch a bitch because she won't shut the fuck up. I brought up a valid health concern about a business that allows smoking and she keeps say it's not a big deal. We're singers, it IS a BIG FUCKING DEAL.

It's not a resolution by any means; more like a vague idea-ish sort of thing

In order not to drop off the face of the internet/Earth again, I'm going to do my best to try posting something (anything) at least once a week as I am severely out of practice.

It will probably be 'yo, still alive here" kind of stuff, but that's better than nothing, right?

SO, in order to give this thing some substance, for today's post I'll report on the local weather.


We've been consistently below or right around freezing for the past few days where I live. The last time I was this fucking cold, I voluntarily went to Chicago in January to meet up with my best friend for her birthday. And cold was totally expected there. I am however, grateful that all I am is cold, unlike the poor people everywhere north of me in the United States who are both cold AND buried under a fuck-ton of snow. My state has no idea what to do when we get half an inch of snow; I'd hate to see how bad it would be if we got any real accumulation.

Hmm... I should probably put up a warning or something. I've gotten WAYYYY more vulger/prone to swearing in the last couple of years than I was before.

Well that wasn't scary at all...

 I find it oddly coincidental that the power at work just happened to go out right after I made that last post. Thank goodness it was only out for a minute or so.

Hopefully my apt didn't lose power as well.

Just a quick post to prove this thing is still active. Since it's been something like 3 frickin' years since my last post....

My Bedroom

I finally got bored enough to start culling my bookshelves on Saturday, then on Sunday I decided it was high time I got around to building the two bookcases my Mum bought me at the beginning of summer. Much cursing and furniture rearranging ensued, but I finally got everything sorted last night. I also took pictures because this is the first time in a long time that my room has been so decluttered. Also, I can't find a damn thing now, lol. But at least my room looks nice.

Beware: this is going to be insanely pic heavy.
For a limited time only... )

Meme Time

I posted a prompt for [ profile] amuly , so I guess it's my turn now.


The first TEN people to comment in this post get to request that I write a drabble/ficlet of any pairing/character of their choosing*. In return, they have to post this in their journal, regardless of their ability level.

Last Call for Christmas Cards!!!!

I really want to do Christmas cards again this year; here's the original post about cards (it's f-locked) that I made before Christmas.

Long story short, if you want a Christmas card from me this year, comment on this post (or the one I linked) and then PM me with your contact info (Name, Address, that sort of thing). If you want to sent me one in return, just let me know & I'll give you my info as well.

Oh! and because it occured to me that not everyone celebrates Christmas (sorry, I am seven kinds of moron, I know) PLEASE let me know if you celebrate a holiday that ISN'T Christmas and I'll be sure to get a card that's appropriate.

Please let me know if you want a card by December 13th so I can get them out in a timely manner! :-D

Was February really the last time I posted here? I really need to consider linking this to my LJ and f-locking it so it looks active. Then again, I hardly post on LJ either....

Ok, I'm just trying to see if this works. If I screw it up and you catch me, I'm sorry. I am somewhat technologically challenged.

Hmm... I seldom manage to post overhere on Dreamwidth. I really should learn how to do that nifty linking thingy that most people have already figured out.

Being a tour guide an old historic home on the seldom visited north-end of town has got to be one of the best possible jobs ever. Only had one tour yesterday, no tours so far today, I'm getting paid to sit here and surf the internet!

I love this job.

College hunting is fun... not. Whole thing sucks like hell and I can't get a straight answer out of anyone re: the music program at the six schools I've emailed in the last week. Hell, I may just stay at my two year college until they kick me out.

Making an entry because I just might be logging on more often.

There's still nothing to see though, so just keep moving.

First Snowfall

In honour of having our first snow fall of the season, I dug out an old, unfinished fic, dusted it off and finished writing it. Enjoy.

Title: First Snowfall


Author: Analia (aka Analia_the_1st)


Beta: None. All mistakes are mine, and I’m sure there are a lot of them.


Characters: Elladan, Elrohir, Celebrían, Elrond, Erestor and Glorfindel


Pairing(s): Erestor/Glorfindel, Elrond/Celebrían


Rating: PG-13 (for implied sexuality, slash, and snowball violence)


Warnings: none


Disclaimer: None of these characters are mine. I’m only doing this for fun and I’m not going to make an ounce of profit (unless you count the reviews). Everything belongs to JRR Tolkien, Tolkien Estates, New Line Cinema, and all those other lucky buggers.


Summary: The twins want someone to play with outside in the newly fallen snow.


Author’s Notes: This is a one-shot fic I started last January (I think) and finally getting our first “real” snowfall where I live inspired me to finish it. I didn’t bother rereading what I’d already written, so keep that in mind as you’re reading because some of the minor details may be slightly off. I am planning on going back through and fixing any major problems. If you see anything that really needs my attention, please let me know.


Review: Please, please, please? I love reviews. Good, bad, indifferent, critical. I’m not picky. I'd prefer critical reviews, but anything and everything is welcome.
