because i'm too tired for anything else...

i feel like writing, but i'm too tired to think of anything clever from a structural standpoint or Thought standpoint, so i'm just going to write a "This is what I did today entry" without using the letter R excluding the use of numbers (as in i'm not going to use the keyboard letter R starting with the next paragraph).

i woke up at 9:30 and polished the two edits i composed one and two days ago. Then i did silly Macintosh stuff until Kim called me. We talked about nothing initially, and then i asked if she was in the mood to talk about us, and she eventually said no. I said, "that's fine," and it is, but it still made the last bit of the talk difficult, and when i hung up, my weak emotional state manifested itself in my eyes.

Then, my newest confidant who lives in LA called and helped me calm down via small talk. Once that ended, I mucked about on the Macintosh until going out to do a job application. I asked the asian woman who seemed to own the place if she still needed someone, and she said yes. The "job application" she gave me was a blank sheet. She said, "name, phone, school, anything else." Someone else had given that info above the space i gave mine. Way casual, but that's fine. I hope she calls.

Then I went to the All That and met up with Dyaus. We played that Dance game beginning about 14:00 and ending about 17:30. I played a lot of double and slowly felt at ease with PAing again, but then when I played one set of single, i was quite out of whack, playing way too fast. It makes me think I should be switching between double and single all the time, but I *do* need to focus on my double skills as an initial goal.

As we began to exit the ATAM, dyaus's ex stopped in to say "hello" to him. I could tell she was his ex without him needing to say anything, which may say something about how she felt, but maybe it was just a bout of nostalgia. I didn't know what to do, so i stayed close by but away, moving in and out of the space. I know that dyaus didn't quite know how to take it, because he's having some issues with said ex because of how she feels about Naima.

Then we needed food, so we ate at Sub Shop (since i was feeling anti-Subway). It wasn't too bad, but nothing exciting. Then I went food shopping and came home.

While doing clothes cleaning, I began making an audio edit to the tune "Changes" by Yes (i wanted to use the opening statement only, so i made an easy fade out cut) with the intention of making an SM file, but i found out that the tempo was way inconsistent, fluxuating between 148 and 150, so i tossed it. Instead, i found an old technoish song that I wanted to SM, but it needed a lot of cutting (the song is about six minutes), so i spent a good 120 minutes cutting it down to about 1'40", being a Mendel-kind-of-anal about tempo maintenance and syncing. I think i did a good job, but it took way too long, so i'm not planning on composing steps tonight. I'm exhausted. It's time to go to bed.


i must be tired. I found about seven Rs that i missed and had to reword. I usually do better than that. Out of practice.

Pretty good how you danced around my name. Well, I'm assuming it's me anyway.
