There is a Brand New!! item on Amazon.com and it is the new number one, all important, desperately desired item on my wish list. (It is the same thing on your list too, you just might no know it yet.)

What is this wonderful thing?
High Midnight the first novel from up and coming writer Rob Mosca
Rob is a wonderful man and a brilliant writer. I have been following him on LJ for years and his creative ramblings never disappoint.

You should click links now to make this book your purchase for my birthday and become my new favorite person. While there you should also purchase a copy for yourself or you will be sad. And you should purchase copies for everyone you like. Then you will also become their new favorite person as well.

Something you might not know is that Rob delayed the release of this publication so it would deliver near my birthday. Granted, he will tell you that it was due to formatting issues and a few other technical things. But we all know better. ;-) *






*Yes, I totally made that part up.

Opening night went pretty well. Of course, I awoke Sat. morning feeling awful. Today I feel worse. But, it is nothing that rest and lots of fluids won't fix. We have 3 more shows and I want them to be stellar and fun and dynamic and so many other things. I am working with a great cast, we have a wonderful director and our AD is super dedicated so I think it will just keep getting better. I really hope I didn't get any of them sick.

Dad asked me what I wanted for my birthday...
So, my biggest wish is that I will feel better fast, do more great shows and have some amazing auditions in the interim so I am move right into the next project.
Since those things are really up to me here is a bit more of my birthday wish list which others can help me with since I don't have the means to do them for myself...

I have an Amazon list. It makes things easy. And don't forget that lots of the things you see there you can probably find cheaper on ebay or half.com.

A more specific list...some from the amazon list but I really really want them so I am pointing them out. Some of them aren't on amazon. I call it The Easy Dozen

1) Dead Sno  It is funny. It is gorey. It is Nazi Zombies.

2) Pontypool  It is creepy. It is gorey. It is the power of language.

3) Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters and Android Karenina- They are from the same brilliant and twisted mind that brought you Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Do I need more of a reason?

4) I want to go Skydiving. In Chicago...in Atlanta maybe. I just want to go. It would be such a thrill and it would certainly count as something for my "Grand Adventure" goals.

5) Tickets to see EvelynEvelyn/ Amanda Palmer/ Jason Webley in Chicago. Sure, the event is long after my birthday but tickets are on sale now.  In that same light I would really like Deluxe Double Vinyl EvelynEvelyn set. Since I am one of the few people on the face of the earth who actually still has a working turn table it just makes sense.

6) An appointment for massage or acupuncture. This place is educational so they have rather inexpensive options.

7) Gift cards. Target, PetCo, Fandango/ Kersotes theater- there are tons of options. Target and Petco are more practical but I rarely get to go to the movies (and there are several out now I want to see) so that would be a wonderful little treat.

8) Tires for my car. What can I say, I need them. I can't afford them. They would mean safety for me and for others....

9) Headshot prints. I still really need to get back to the ATL to get together with [livejournal.com profile] moonbird and/ or [livejournal.com profile] smithrunt to get some color headshots taken. But, in the meantime I really really could use copies of my black and white ones.

10) Bath Bombs. One of the indulgences I like so much is quality time in a long hot bath. Lush Bath bombs make them so much more relaxing and delightful.

11) A telescopic shower head. I had one of these before and it was amazing. It is so much better than a normal fixed shower head. I just...yeah. It is a good thing.

12) These boots. Or one that look pretty much just like them. (black, lace up, low/ no heel, rounded toe...) Size 7. :-) It's spring. That means baggy dresses and boots. Or tank top, cargo pants and boots. These are the perfect boots.  (Speaking of that, [livejournal.com profile] thefairygothmom, did you ever unsurface the post-surgery dresses you were working on for me when moved? If they are around I would still love them. :-)  )

So, there it is...
Now, my sickie self is back to bed.

So, my birthday is on the 26th. I worked things out so I have the week (25-2) off. I was hoping for a lovely stay-cation followed by my friend's wedding.
Instead I get long distance planning of my mother's wake, then my friend's wedding and then my mother's wake.
Really, a shitty birthday week.

In light of that I am going to play the pity card and declare that I have earned the right to ask for stuff!!!
Two lists. The easy list and the wish for the stars list. Almost all of it is on my amazon wish list.

1) Mostly, I want my friends. I want to be surrounded by them and laugh with them and all that good stuff.
2) Acupuncture/ Massage. It is a school so it is only about 30.00 per appt.
3) My very own not-bootlegged copy of The Mad
4) Mani-pedi day.
5) Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog
6) A juicer. I really want to dive deep into the Raw Food thing and this will help immensely.
7) This Showerhead. I had one before and I LOVED it.
8) Small Yoga Balls. Joke about my huge balls may now commence.
9) Repo! The Genetic Opera
10) Bath Bombs. (Special thanks to Jolie for the Sympathy gift. It will be used to its fullest potential.)
11) AMC or Regal Cinemas Gift Cards.

And wishing for the stars....
1) Headshot reprints.- They are cheap here
2) New headshots. I need some in color...
3) A new laptop. My little Veger is holding up well given her years but that isn't saying much.
4) Website/Online portfolio. I know how much it would cost me if I had to pay someone to do it so it is in the Wish Big list.
5) Tickets to some big shows here in Chicago. Really, anything. There is so much good theater here. I need to see some of it...Wicked, Spamalot, Jersey Boys...whatever.
6) Classes with the NeoFuturists. I don't think I can do this session but next session...
7) Gym Membership. Seriously, I'm fat and out of shape. I need this.
8) Self cleaning litterbox. This is something I think my kitty sitters would also appreciate.
9) Skydiving. I really need to jump out of an airplane.
10) Ink. Several of you know Loki. If you don't want to do then for me then do it for him. :-)

So, there you have it. My all out wish for it all lists. Because really, who ever thought I would make 36....
kittenspeaks: (wrong era)
My birthday is in a week. I have the week of my birthday off as "vacation time". I did have all these grand plans for a dinner or two, a day of beauty, an evening with the NeoFuturists... Sadly, having missed over a week of work to deal with the first stages of Mom's death all the money squirreled away for those things has to go to other stuff...like bills. But, all things considered, I really need to celebrate.

Thanks to the wonderful and amazing Crazy Larry I still get to do one of the the things I had planned-
3 RINGS OF HORROR ZOMBIE PUB CRAWL!!!!
Now be careful- there are 2 Zombie Pub Crawls that day. Scroll down to the information about Weird Chicago's 3 Rings of Horror.
You have to sign up in advance and you can get the tickets here. Again, scroll down to the 3 Rings of Horror and not the regular tour. (Although the tour is definitely worth attending.) It is only 15.00 and this gets you a ride from bar to bar as well as drink specials, movies, Misfits Cover band and a ton of other fun stuff.

And you should join me. I mean, it's Saturday Night Zombie Goodness. Do you really have anything better to do?

I'll post a wish list later. Or you can just click on the link for my Amazon Wish list that is in the sidebar of my LJ...

Since it is officially April- the month of my birth I thought I would post my "All out wish for the Stars Birthday Wish List". (I am also posting this now since part of it is kinda time sensitive.
I know this is a list of expensive items.
But, if everyone on my F-list pitched in just one dollar then I could get a couple of them.
Imagine, for less than the cost of a cup of coffee you could make the dreams of a snow-bound Kitten come true....Where is Sally Struther when I need her?

1) Eddie Izzard Tickets. He is in Chicago May 15-17 (I would want tix for Thurs or Fri.) Just two little tickets (so I can try to find a "date").

2) Headshot Reproductions. This place offers great prices and bonus cards. 100.00 for 100 prints....50 of each of the ones I have...

3) The new Lip Service Hollywood Geisha Dress in Black. I got so many compliments on the old one I had. Alas, it is about 5 years old and was worn to threads and I have gain many pounds since then as well. (There are several places that have the dress cheaper than the Lip Service site.)

4) A new auto cleaning litter box. Sadly my litter robot isn't functioning the way it should. Time to replace. And with a more size limited option.

5) Cordless Drill. Something on my wish list for years. It is practical. I am not posting a link as there are TONS of options. Yes, my dream is a Makita. But DeWalts are great too...

6) A day of pampering. Hair, nails, massage...Again, no link as there are lots of options.

7) Color Headshots. All I have now is B/W. I need to move to a new standard for submittal to agencies for commercials and such.

8) Nice Pots and Pans. Yes, I have pots and pans. But they are all cheap and old. I love to cook. I want to cook on something nice.

9) Teledyne WaterPik Flexarm Shower head. I used to have one of these and I loved it SOOOOO much. Sadly, it was installed and removed so many times it finally got stripped out.

10) Skydiving. I want to go. I want someone to go with me. Again, no link as there are tons of options. I can fly anywhere United goes so I can come to you for the event. :-)

11) Tattoo. Send me to Loki at his new digs. I has art. I will travel.

There you have it. My 11 High Dollar "Wish for the Stars Birthday Wishlist" items.

Now, I am going for a long hot shower. I get to play with the doctors early tomorrow.
If I feel ok after then there will be laundry...oh yes- There will be laundry....

Today I want to say happy birthday to two very important and influential men in my life. Hampton and Scott .(geez...what's with me and the Pisces men?)

To both of you...thank you for being a part of my life. Thank you for loving me and letting me love you. Thank you for letting us get past the bad times and remember the good. Thank you for letting us build a friendship to make new good as well as building a love in that friendship. One that is perhaps even stronger for the bad times we had.You are very important to me and I am glad we have weathered the storms..even if we created them ourselves. You showed me love,friendship, passion, creativity, dreams and stories that have helped to make me a stronger and more confident woman.

I have had the love of many men in many forms. From you- I feel I have had the love of some of the best men...and in the friendship we have now I still do.

I love you.
I hope you have a brilliant year filled with happiness, love, success and passion.
Know that you will always have a piece of my heart.
And know that I am always here and your friend.
