anniversary

Jan. 19th, 2009 | 10:37 am

Today is me and Lette's anniversary (5 Years!) and it's funny, but I never realized before this year that it falls on Martin Luther King Jr day. We're unfortunately not spending the day together today (she's busy setting up for an art exhibition at her school today (her paintings look amazing) and we're both working this evening). We're hoping to do dinner tomorrow night instead since we'll both be free then.

year in review

Dec. 9th, 2008 | 11:54 am

Bonnie started it, but this'll be my second year doing this.


Take the first sentence (or two) from the first post of each month of 2008. That's your year in review...

January: I had a really good day yesterday. I went to the first of my fight seminars with pastimes, and it felt so good to be out and fighting again.

February: So is anyone actually going to winterfeast this year? I just checked the lists, and with only four registration days to go there are only 4 names I recognize...this does not bode well for Lette and I deciding to go

March: So now that everything's all official and announced, I can tell everyone. The faire hired me to be fight director this year.

April: Once more my car is in the garage, though for once I took it there voluntarily. Now that my income is a little better and since faire season is coming up I figured now would be a good time to get whatever repairs are necessary done.

May: No entries in May

June: I am sorry everyone for not being at the wedding today, and most of all to Jenn. Lette and I wanted nothing more than to be there, but the 30 degree jump in temperature killed my car.

July: Fights are gonna fuckin rock this year...that pretty much sums up my feelings right now. We finished writing our last three fights yesterday (the axe fight, chain fight, and the final fight) which were the three hardest so we saved them for last.

August: No entries in August

September: Haven't posted in a long while, since before fight workshop in fact. Summer was strange this year, first time in my life I have not gone home for the summer, and it still feels a little weird to think Lette and I have been out on our own for over a year now.

October: The big 3 day weekend is behind us and given how exhausted I was by the end, I'm definitely thankful for that. It'll be good to have a nice standard weekend to end on so that we all have full energy for the last day.

November: I have been rather lax about updating of late...and by that I mean I haven't said anything since halfway through the run of faire. Life has been...hectic. I couldn't have been happier with the way CTRF played out this year from the fight end of the production.

December: I bought lunch on the way to class today at a little sandwich shop, and decided to eat outside in the park since it's actually rather nice here in the city today. I had been there for a few minutes when a squirrel approached me and sat staring at me for a minute, it then jumped up on the park bench beside me.

Sometimes nature tugs at your pantleg...

Dec. 2nd, 2008 | 11:14 am

and says, "hey, are you gonna eat that?"

I bought lunch on the way to class today at a little sandwich shop, and decided to eat outside in the park since it's actually rather nice here in the city today. I had been there for a few minutes when a squirrel approached me and sat staring at me for a minute, it then jumped up on the park bench beside me. Sitting next to me was a container of french fries which had come with the sandwich, the container was on top of the paper bag everything had come in. The squirrel, all the while avoiding making eye contact with me slowly reached out one hand and began pulling the bag toward himself a little bit at a time. I reached out and pulled it back. He slowly started working it toward him again, and I pulled it back. This went on for some time. Finally I picked up the bag and moved it to the other side of me, I then handed him a single fry, which he took and happily ate for a minute. He then ran over and climbed onto my leg (no shit, ON MY LAP)and began to tug at my shirt and make little whistling sounds at me. At this point I was pretty much done (and I didn't want to piss off the wild rodent sitting on me) so I dumped out what was left of the fries for him and left.

Anyway, I've got to give a presentation in two hours, and then I still have 2 classes to go to before I can go home for the day. Ugh, the semester is practically over, but it's dragging terribly at this point.

my apologies

Jun. 8th, 2008 | 12:34 am

I am sorry everyone for not being at the wedding today, and most of all to Jenn. Lette and I wanted nothing more than to be there, but the 30 degree jump in temperature killed my car. It was too late to have it fixed in time, we're not old enough to rent a car, and we don't know anyone in the city to borrow a car from. I hope you all had a wonderful time, and that Zanne passed on my apology. Congratulations Jenn, enjoy your honeymoon, I've got plenty of fight stuff in store for you when you get back. I think you're going to be very happy this year.

Taking a Personal Day...well afternoon

Apr. 18th, 2008 | 12:35 pm
whereabouts:: suffolk university for thirty more seconds

I spent the morning sitting through two classes in which lots of scientific bullshit was discussed, but nothing was really said. I had planned to spend the afternoon working on a presentation I'm giving next week. About twenty minutes before the end of my last class I decided I'd had enough for the day after listening to a discussion about quantum mechanics and the wave theory of motion. I left and now I plan to take a walk across the city, get lunch and probably a drink and go to the aquarium. Random I know, but watching animals relaxes me and I haven't been there for a long time. I am so done with science for the day. Homework can wait til monday when I have the day off.

Off to enjoy the spring.

quick update

Mar. 31st, 2008 | 03:29 pm
whereabouts:: boston ma
music: Flogging Molly - Requiem for a Dying Song

I keep meaning to post and then never having the time to do it. Life has just been working out lately so that whatever time is not taken up by work and school is required to complete all of the lab reports and other things I need to write up. Things are going well however, and school will be out in just over a month. I've stopped hosting at Legal Sea Foods and am now serving full time, which is a welcome return to what I'm used to. I'm still not accustomed to being tipped for such expensive meals, so I keep being pleasantly surprised.

Also, I've been thinking more and more about faire as auditions draw closer (less than two weeks now). I've got some many ideas for things that I want to do with the fighters this year, but nothing I can finalize until the casting is finished. I really hope we pick up some new talent this year, and that we get a good showing from everyone during the auditions. It's going to be really odd for me to be involved in the casting discussions this time around, but I'm glad I get to advocate for the fighters I want. Speaking of which, if there's anyone who has not fought before but is considering it I urge you to say you're willing at auditions, there are so many good parts that one simply cannot get cast in without being willing to commit a little staged violence.

Having read the synopsis I foresee good things for the coming season, both in general and for fighters specifically. My only real personal debate at the moment is what part I should audition for myself. I'm going to be a wreck for the next two weeks as I know I will be thinking about the show constantly.

Well, I've got to head off to work now, but I look forward to seeing nearly all of you very soon. With love as always,

Dustin

interview with an irishman

Feb. 25th, 2008 | 09:13 pm

Check this out, the majority of the clip is eric talking about the faire, but there's a little bit of an interview I did as Liam tacked on at the end.

This one also has some nice bits of fights in it, and again a little Liam at the very end.

And no, this isn't what I was so excited about in the last post. I'll tell you as soon as I can, I promise.
