|FOR SALE, Texas-style
||[Dec. 7th, 2013|02:20 pm]
All right, so here's the deal: I'm going home to Texas for the holidays in two weeks, and then I'm going there for good at the end of January. And I have a whole lot of stuff, and I would very much like to take as little of it with me as possible.
Therefore, from now through January 18th, if you buy something, I'll get it to you for free. No matter where in the world it's going, no matter how big, no matter how small, the cost of the shipping is my gift to you. There will be surprise deals as well! It all depends on what you order!
Here's what's for sale: whatever's listed on the posts linked to from here, plus a bunch of things listed in my more recent sparkle posts and/or fuzzy posts that I haven't had a chance to list here. (Keep in mind, however, that this is just me and and a bunch of LJ entries, so it's entirely possible that someone might have snatched something up between the time you saw it and the time you asked for it. It's a first-come, first-serve economy here.)
There's still time for custom pieces! However, that time is getting shorter and shorter as the end of the year draws closer. The sooner you ask, the better your chances are of my having time for that.
If you have want to order something or just have a question, you can message me here on LJ, email me at ladysisyphus(at)livejournal, tweet at me @ladysisyphus, send me an ask on tumblr, or just shout really loud and hope I'm nearby.

After rounds of applications, interviews, and phone calls, drmoonpants has finally found a place that accepts the marvel that she is, and next semester, she'll be starting a job as a super-cool librarian at a large university in Houston! She starts in early February, so in a few weeks, we're going to be doing our usual drive south for Christmas, and then in about two months, we're going to be hauling our butts south for a very long time to come.
I have a lot of mixed feelings about going back to Texas, most of which I'll probably be vomiting here off and on over the next few months, but: this is a good move and this will bring many good things, and even though the feelings are mixed, they come down overwhelmingly on the side of 'yay!'

A year or two ago I decided to try to make a list of all of the theatre that I've seen in London. I combed my records, as well as lists of shows produced by various west end theatres. At present count I'm up to 49, but I can't actually swear that this list is accurate. I probably missed something that I've seen, or included something that I think I saw but actually didn't. There are a few regrettable and forgettable shows on the list, things like Fame, Witches of Eastwick, Loserville, and god help me Love Never Dies which I saw primarily for the trainwreck aspects, but also to put a checkmark on it. There are also some underrated ones like The Beautiful Game. In all honesty, I left Bog of Cats at intermission because it was slow and done in a barely-understandable brogue, and I was falling asleep.
Also, I was looking at lists of west end theatres last night trying to figure out which ones I'd been to and how many times. There was one that seemed like I should have been there, and I couldn't figure out why. "Oh, right. It's been running the Lion King for 15 years, and I've never been that desperate."
