yay...

It's been *absolutely* *nuts* this week, yet again. Adrenaline don't fail me now.

We had our Mercury auditions last week, Tuesday and Thursday, and a few have spilled over to this week and possibly next, since we're flexible that way. But, *O*M*G* our cast is going to be awesome. I just came home from an music-gasm...do again! do again!

Friday, super early, [livejournal.com profile] jonah777 and I flew to Orange County to get the low down on the history of the Rites of Eleusis in the early O.T.O. in North America. We have stories on video tape and photographic evidence! Bwah ha ha! It was an amazing time. I worked hard to archive and scan, but left feeling happy in a "I just had a vacation" way.

I made my work deadline, only to have CBL and I decide that we need another month to make my awesome work even BETTER. So, I'm tweaking the finer points this week and continuing to work extra hours. This is a good thing on payday, but makes it hard to get to other things like memorizing 3 different scripts that are on my plate right now, finishing my ROM notes, and getting organized in a handful of other projects.

BUT, this weekend is less scheduled than others. I'm deacon for Mass on Saturday...that's pretty much it. So I'll be spending a lot of time getting caught up on things, including housework, since we have house guests next week for Kaaba.

That's right. Next week is Kaaba Colloquium and out of town awesomeness! I'll also be doing a lot of Mercury work and at some point trying to fit in a trip to Olympus to soak my aching bod.
