Still alive, and after Symposium it's a miracle. That kind of pre-show theater mood, the "aaaaah, we're all going to die, this show's going to suck, we're going to lose our charter, this is terrible!" atmosphere right up until the last minute, is really, really bad for my health (no surprise), even though everything went off almost without a hitch. Our Agathon was pretty plastered (dude, you are a tragic poet) and our Diotima was very anxious, but performed beautifully. And I was apparently the very best Glaucon in the whole business, from how much praise I've gotten from just that tiny scenelet. Or maybe they're humoring me, fucked if I know, I'm just really glad it's over. I was not meant for the stage -- the actual acting is fun and fine, and I'm even fine working with a deadline, but the cast dynamics and having to keep track of who's mad at whom for what goes right over my head and that's the bulk of the actual rehearsal time for me. I've been sick all of the three days I've been home, but am recovering! I'm also at work, which is the best feeling in the universe after like six months of "aaaaah money where did the money go aaaaah".

Got my Yuletide fic written! It's not my usual genre at all, as I'm sure my recipient will see when they open up their fic, but it was so, so fun to write. One other treat also finished -- not super long, but I am proud of it. I just wish I could do more, it's driving me absolutely mad to be so unable to write, even if I know the only way to get past that is to write like a fiend.

I've also been reading all of the R&J fic (ALL OF IT) and am now getting started on Pargoletta's Caro-verse. Aw yeah.
