Macbeth the Usurper


The film last night was Gerard Depardieu's version of Cyrano de Bergerac.

Jen's job situation is up in the air. Her work, the Advocacy Insitute, is going through tough times and will be laying off. She doesn't know if she will stay or go. Poor thing. Tough times for her.

For some unknowable reason, I dreamed about Heather last night. I really can't fathom it, other than I just miss that crazy woman sometimes.

Dead Russian Composer

I *love* random live journals. I just found this little test:

If I were a Dead Russian Composer, I would be Dmitri Shostakovich!

I am a shy, nervous, unassuming, fidgety, and stuttery little person who began composing the same year I started music lessons of any sort. I wrote the first of my fifteen symphonies at age 18, and my second opera, "Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk District," when I was only 26. Unfortunately, Stalin hated the opera, and put me on the Enemy Of The People List for life. I nevertheless kept composing the works I wanted to write in private; some of my vocal cycles and 15 string quartets mock the Soviet System in notes. And I somehow was NOT killed in the process! And Harry Potter(c) stole my glasses and broke them!

Who would you be? Dead Russian Composer Personality Test
