Contrary to what I said in my last post, I did not work until 6 today. I was reminded by my supervisor and my iTouch that I was working until 9. No big deal. I guess my brain figured that I worked until 6 every day. Tomorrow I am most definitely working until 6, no question about it.
I scheduled my physical for college, so all is well… oh! I gotta register for classes! Must save draft! … Well, I tried to register but my account isn’t functioning for some reason. I shall call tomorrow morning and get to the bottom of things. Tomorrow is also the day I perform for a bunch of drunk gay people! I think I’m going to play the following:
- Mika Nakashima’s FAKE (without vocals but with awesome jazz piano because no one will understand Japanese) Ohhh… I encountered a bad rendition of some poor cos-player “singing” it at a convention of some sort. I should really go to one of those things to perform. I would kick serious ass.
- Sarah Slean’s Day One (bad sound quality, sorry). Got to have at least one up-beat song, right?
- Emm Gryner’s Blackwinged Bird (with vocals of course) to close the set. I’m going to dedicate this song to my Katima-people.
I’m looking forward to performing on a piano again which I haven’t done in quite a while. Not only that, to have a microphone with the piano for once? Sweet jesus.
Holy shit. I actually felt that thunder hit something close to the house. I didn’t mention it was storming outside but… it’s storming outside. Now you know. That photo post I talked about will come later on in the week. Friday seems like a good day to do it as it is a day when I do not work. To make up for the wait…
Here’s an -Ing Thing!
A couple of days ago I bought (so it isn’t really buying at all. A false -Ing Thing) 2 types of CK Underwear and a blue silk shirt (which I am debating on wearing tomorrow for the performance or for the party… if it’s nice out, it’s going to be worn at the performance… one of the new pairs of underwear too) from my work (something that fits?! WHAAAAAAT?!). I know I’m not supposed to buy anything but I enjoy having underwear at my disposal (that sounds terrible, but what I mean to say is that I enjoy underwear the same way that women buy shoes or purses. Maybe I should of applied at the CK Underwear store again and forced them to only interview me for there and not for the Calvin Klein store that is in a mall that I can’t drive to) and the shirt was cheap.
To work out more. I need to up my reps in everything: push-ups, sit-ups, going to start these ab exercises (be warned, there is bad music afoot and a minute of a useless intro)… We’ll see how that goes.
I’ve started to play Final Fantasy Tactics when I’m bored of everything else (which won’t be the case in a few days with all the lessons and whatnot). I’m not a huge fan of strategy games, but I do like FF, so it evens out.
Oh god. I remember when I first read about this group I told myself I wasn’t going to listen to them because they’re just so… Perfume? I figured I wouldn’t enjoy them, but as I was working today, a song came on that was similar to one that I heard a 30 second clip of (you can even learn how to do the dance!). Now I can’t get it out of my head. I think I’m going to have to download their album now.
However, if there’s one J-Pop artist that I don’t intend on listening to, it’s Leah Dizon. I’m sorry, her voice is too soft and quiet (they drown her out with the backing track). I’ve seen her live performances and they are just terrible. Granted, it is difficult to sing and dance at the same time, but there’s better than this. She’s trying to be the next Britney or something by impressing everyone with her dance moves and it’s working. If a Race Queen/Model turned singer can make it big… It gives me hope for my music career in Japan (you won’t see me dancing though).
Now I’m going to practice for tomorrow. The best thing about not having anyone else in the house? I can perform in my robe and no one can stop me.
