30 Days of Me: Day 26

“What do you think of your friends?”

That they’re the best damn things since the invention of ever!!

I’ve got a group of friends where we don’t have to be drinking to have a great time. Where being different from the crowd isn’t just tolerated, it’s celebrated. Where much caffeine is consumed, much fun had and much talking about nearly any topic is had.

And, possibly best of all, costume parties with ridiculous themes and equally ridiculous shenanigans.

30 Days of Me: Day 25

“What I would find in your bag”

The contents of my bag varies hugely, depending on what I’ve got on that day.
So, because I’ve got a show on my mind, I’ve picked my standard “going to rehearsal” pile of crap.

Yes, I do need two types of caffeine!

A fairly succinct summary of the stuff you'd find in my bag for a show

This includes:

Pens, markers and pencils
Ruler & highlighters
Small notepad
A5 sketchpad
Gaffer & Lekkie tape
Mini-screwdriver set, selection of screws
String & thin rope
Paperclips & Rubber Bands
Bobby-pins, hair ties & a comb
Mini first aid kit, inhaler & aspirin
USB to mini USB converter, USB hub, Apple data cable, AUX cable, LAN cable
Phone Charger
Candy, crackers and muesli
Phone (Stopwatch, torch, internet, voice recorder, games)
Fiction Book
Spare black t-shirt, socks & stockings
MP3 Player & headphones
Script/Stagebook/Relevant Paperwork

The hardest part of being a Stage Manager is picking which things you think you’re going to need that day. Sometimes it turns out that a hammer would have been a great idea, most of the time you’ll know in advance if you’re going to need it.

Dan, however, doesn’t have these problems! Check out his short list here.
Ms Sofie has a rather special post, although not in the good way. Read her post over here.
And I’ve no idea where Briony is, I’m going to blame the snow and give her the benefit of the doubt for now. Hopefully she’ll be back into the swing tomorrow, once the snow in Welly has settled down.

30 Days of Me: Day 24

“A letter to your parents”

This is an interesting one, seeing as I don’t actually have the standard nuclear family. So I’ve chosen to write three short letters. One to my Father, one to my (now ex-step) Dad and one to my Mumski.

Onwards! Continue reading

30 Days of Me: Day 21

“A picture of something that makes you happy”


Raspberry White-Chocolate Cheesecake, made from scratch

Making delicious treats for my friends makes me happy.
And photography makes me very happy, especially when it turns out well!

I also rather enjoy writing, which is what Briony’s post for today is about.

So Cats, what’s something that makes you happy?

30 Days of Me: Day 19

“Nicknames you have and why you have them”

Oh my.
Over my years I’ve collected a great deal of nicknames, however many of them have gone the way of the original creators. Which is to say, well out of my life and the gods only know where!

There are a couple that I rather enjoyed though. Och, pronounced ‘oak’, which was short for Ochre was a favourite. Along with Blambie and Koinu.

These days I run mostly under variations my primary handle, which is Fallen Red Ninja. Some cats call me Red, others Ninja and even more call me Ninja-Pants. Continue reading

30 Days of Me: Day 18

Ohai interwebs! So nice of you to work for me today!! (The wireless connection at Mum’s is a bit shit, unfortunately)

“Plans/Dreams/Goals that you have”

There’s so many things that I want to do!
So I guess I’ll pick three. One short term, one somewhere in the middle and one long term.

Short Term

Survive the next 4 months of study, doing well enough to get offered a place in a Masters program of my choosing. Preferably an overseas one with a full scholarship but getting accepted will suffice. Continue reading

More excuses that may taste like chicken …

I’m not sure if there will be a post tonight due to the lack of interwebs that my netbook is currently experiencing and the nigh on impossibility of typing it on my phone.

Sorry Cookies.

I’ll get one up if the wireless deigns to allow me.
