devilish

(no subject)

i did end up calling in sick this morning, and now sit here in mismatched pajammas, with a hot rice bag on my lower back. dunno what in the world i did to it, but i haven't been able to bend over for the life of me for two days now. wah, wah.

thankfully, found my other boxes of holiday cards, as i was getting low on the ones that i had been using. i had thought i miiight have one or two other boxes, maybe, but i came across FOUR. so i have plenty to shower upon you.

so, again, i ask (for those that missed my first hundred requests, or for those new on my friends list) to please email me your address at aubkabob@comcast.net, kthnx!

yay for such great friends! i got my gift in the mail from eternitywaiting - it was such a pleasant surprise! i'm still grinning, and i opened it a half hour ago :D. i was beyond touched, i was (it was a raven (a la teen titans) tshirt - fantastic!) i'm not like belenen in the whole anticipation thing... i stared at the package for about .5 seconds (after reading the beloved card, of course!) before ripping it to shreds to get to the creamy goodness inside! EXCITED.

i also received my first Christmas cards, too, from wendywoowho and dbaxdevilsfan!!! yaay! i need to continue to work on mine, i do. and postage. i need postage.

i got a form in the mail from clark college for my financial aid, saying to please fill out form and return to the admissions office no later than october 7, 2005, in order to attend winter semester (ha ha, almost typed solstice.) hrm. maybe problematic? i filled it out, anyway, now just to get it down there. i assume that mailing it is an option? although with as much stuff going through the mail right now, it would make me nervous to just toss something that is so important to the usps. maybe i'll bus it, then.

because i'm so freaking behind on my email, and to get in the spirit of the holiday season, i present to you:

aubrey singing "Jingle Bell Rock" for charity!

for those of you that weren't on my friends list for 2002, or that may have missed other ramblings about it, the place i was a travel agent for in phoenix held auditions for a Christmas charity album. my coworkers and i recorded the album in june/july of 2002. now, i had just joined my first band at the time, The Vacant Stairs, (i sang and played guitar, stacebass played bass and trumpet, norsican played guitar, and scrumbles played accordion and other things.) and had taken part in many o karaoke contests, and had performed at several Christmas parties at work. i was mostly confident in my singing ability, though nerve-wrackingly nervous whenever i sang in front of someone for the first time.

in case i haven't told you the story 298374928 times already, the whole thing was massively nerve-wracking. the auditions were held in the president's board room, with the record producer, vice president, and another high-head-honcho sitting at the other end of the table, staring blankly at you and taking notes. the lights were bright in the board room, and as you sang, you knew that anyone waiting in the adjoining room (and the receptionist for the company) could hear you belting out your song. it was all a very surreal experience. i auditioned with "O Holy Night", which they ended up giving to someone else (after hearing HER sing it, i totally understood, but sheesh, she was cocky about it, saying she was just singing 'some song', when i had wanted to sing a song that to me was very emotional, that meant something to me, i guess.)

they called me back and said "yay, we want you! but um... would you mind terribly possibly maybe perhaps singing a different song? like jingle bell rock or little drummer boy?"

i WAS going to go upstairs to grab the cd and scan in the group picture of us. however, i know that some of yous get pissy about posting other people's pictures without their permission, for one (not necessarily YOU, but i've seen in other forums people get angry "OH MY GAW, DID YOU GET THEIR PERMISSION?!?"), and for another... hell, it's ALL. THE WAY. UPSTAIRS.

due to self consciousness and a bad case of morning hair, i wasn't going to post these, but inspired by my dearest belenen (as i use a phrase that is being used so much on my friends list lately! i keep TELLING you that you inspire, girlie!) i decided to do differently.

i was afraid that the shirt wouldn't fit over my knockers, but it did, hooray! i'm sure that you would have been able to see the picture of raven better had i been wearing a bra, but sheesh, wearing perjamma like clothing is so not a bra wearing situation.
