Had a brilliant time in cleveland this weekend with [ profile] rose_whispers for [ profile] avengangle and Ben's wedding. And, of course, no trip to Cleveland is complete without Ben and I discussing Ubuntu. Even if it is at his wedding reception. *coff* [speaking of. Steph, tell Ben that the update went through fine and the two weird issues my laptop was having are gone after I did the update. And ask him where the all-black theme he's using came from. XD]

So Rose is on the bus for the way home -- and I'm sitting here all asquee. Not because she left (because WOE) but because of what happened at the bus terminal.

I'm wearing my "Producers" sweatshirt and this guy comes up to me and asks if it was from the National Tour. I explain that it's from the Playhouse production. He says he always asks when he sees people wearing show shirts/sweatshirts because he's with the national touring company of Cats. [insert HOLY SHIT here]. Start talking about Andrew, as he had played piano in that pit for a year.

To make a long story short, he took my name, number and email. And said he'd pass them along to their music contractor. The guy (his name was Jerry) that I spoke to is the massage therapist. So it's not like he's just an actor, he's part of the production staff. AND on top of that, said that violinists are in demand for tours. HIGH demand.

So... uh... law school might get pushed back for a year. I have no idea if anything is going to come from this. And it's very, very possible that nothing will. But there's a chance.

Holy. Shit.

First of all, thanks guys for the comments on my last post. It did help in the cheering up. I have to go back and comment to you guys, but really -- just know that you all rock in the cheering-up category. ♥

And it's official! I now have Ubuntu! *dance o'joy* thanks to [ profile] avengangle's boy, I now have two pretty shiny operating systems on my computer. And really, I cannot see myself going back to XP. I know I'll have to in order to run certain programs of mine (Like Finale, Sims if I ever start playing again, etc...) but I simply love the interface and the functionability of Ubuntu. It's... an OS for computer geeks and when you need help with something, it's other computer geeks helping you out. It's simply brilliant.

Also -- if anyone knows of a client a la Semagic that can be used to update LJ/IJ (even simultaneously)... please pass it along!

In other news, am currently sick as a dog. I called in sick to work yesterday which I was thankfully able to do as we're basically caught up with editing. My head is still stuffed up and I feel like I'm coughing up a lung. YAY SINUS INFECTION!

Only... not.

So... last week was an absolute blast. Officially -- [ profile] avengangle you and the boy are NOT allowed to laugh.

I attempted to install ubuntu. And in the end... completely uninstalled my computer. I missed the little thing in the install that was about partitioning my harddrive. Yeah. Missed that. Totally uninstalled XP. And it took about 3 days to get it back. Especially as I nearly had a heartattack trying to find the drivers for my video card, sound card and wireless card. Not so fun. Really, really not.

In other news... theatre is going off... somewhat without a hitch. We open tonight and I'm going to be very glad when this week is done. It's just... sucked. Patrick still can't conduct.

So a question to the flist. Have you ever felt like no matter what you do, it's not good enough? Yeah. That's how I feel right now.

To my flist -- tell me something good that's happened to you this week. Hopefully everyone else has had a better week than I have.
