This weekend I had a guest come visit me for the weekend. My guest was Jaisan. Jai is from San Diego and a fellow performer. Currently, she is performing on the Star of India.
I haven't seen Jaisan since Pennsic War XXX, last summer. Jaisan was one of the dear friends who became a member in high standing of Andrei's Harem. (Thank you's to Ari, Jaisan, Ko, Elisssabeth, Alexandria, and Aelfwyn for the marvelous company you were at War)
Now, I suppose I should correct myself. Jaisan didn't come up to L.A. I dragged her kicking (nothing) and screaming (so quietly that she wouldn't have awoken a librarian). It turned out she had a free weekend and I'd just had a horrendous week (which is due to an NDA that I'm not allowed to comment about)
I beg...anyone who knows about my flight this past week, please do NOT comment about it here. You can email me offline if you are curious about the reasons for not discussing it.
So here was my Saturday. I *ahem ahem* flew in from *ahem ahem* and landed at about noon. I called over to Blue Horizon Camp new temple and asked if there was space for an extra person for the maiden mass at their new temple at 3pm. I was due to pick up Jaisan in SD at the ship at 8pm. So it looked okay to do both.
I bailed from mass at about 5:30. It would be tight. I made it there at about 8:30pm. Just as Jaisan was heading out. She dropped into the car and we went back to L.A.
We tried to crash shortly after getting back to L.A. but such was not to happen. Jaisan (also a Fight Club Fan) turned out to be suffering from insomnia. So...we talked a while and I showed her some anime from my collection. This was the Second OAV from the Urusei Yatsura series...Beautiful Dreamer. I also made some of my home brew tea and added some catnip as an herbal sedative. After the film we both conked right out.
The plan for today: Shop for gothie clothes, hit the hot tub and sociallize with Jai, hit the club in the evening. Well after a failed shopping trip the weekend before this one (With all respect to abnrml who was unbelievably patient as we discovered closed stores, vagrant winos who looked like winodw displays and an unfortunate toy and leather store for gyzzz (I think I'm going to see if I can get this as popular as grrls) I had a great deal of luck while *ahem ahem* away at (of all places) Hot Topic.
Last week I picked up this awesome pair of faux-Victorian blouses (one white, one black). And a fantastic, full length coat that matched right along with it. So, Jaisan and I head for the Glendale Galleria. We get there about 10. The place doesn't open until 11. By 12 or 1 we'd found boots at Hot Topic for each of us. Unfortunately, the floor model that fit me was a left shoe only. They couldn't find its match. They called around and found a pair of both at the store out in Arcadia. (15 miles Easy) We went. The boots were perfect.
Back to my place for some Hot tubbing. Warm water makes for great conversation. We caught up on each other's lives. Not tired, so we watched some of the Season 1 Buffy eps. on DVD. Then we headed out for the club. Sunday Night Goth Night at the Blu. Each night is a different theme and they rename the club for the theme. So, the club we went to was The Dungeon
More on the Dungeon in another post another time...But to finish off...here is the long awaited picture of Jai and I before we headed off to the club. The picture here is a thumbnail. Click it for the full sized picture. Note: this is me hunched over because the boots gave me 3 inches. I decided to give off my best Toreador, dramaa queen, victorian vamp thing that I could....
