Epic Fail

Audition - FAIL! (Edit to add: there is a second call-back, but I am not being considered for the Lion.)
Voice final - FAIL!
Dating - FAIL!
Work promotion - FAIL!
Vespa repair - FAIL!

It's been a splendid week. (He said through gritted teeth, forced smile plastered on his face in a fine example of the mortician's art...)

I suppose it's times like this that real character shows through. I could wallow in self-pity and accept this streak as the inevitable arc of my life - or better, I could get up off my ass, and do something amazing. Preferably for someone else's benefit, since that's so often the most rewarding of amazing acts. On the other hand, if I try and do something lovely for someone else, and then FAIL! someone other than me is paying the price. At the very least, I want to accomplish something which ought to be celebrated with cake. Because really, aren't life's nicest moments generally punctuated with cake?

Anyway. Bowed but not beaten, it's just been a rotten week.

Baking a cake is something that can be celebrated with cake :D

And you can bake a cake for other people! Win-win!

Baking a cake FOR someone is, in fact, not a bad idea at all. Now I just need someone celebrating something that qualifies!

Surely you know someone local who is epic enough to deserve such an effort purely for being so?

You know, as a matter of fact, I do.

Thanks. Now I've got a mission.

I beg your pardon? Where are you getting FAIL from?

Audition- You got a call back. That's a win.

Voice Final- You completed a voice class and performed a solo in front of the class. Win.

Dating- I was under the impression that this time you were the windshield, not the bug.

Work Promotion- Come on. You knew the deal there already.

Vespa Repair- You tried to fix an Italian machine on your own?? But why?

You know, I haven't said this, but I have been meaning to: I don't worry about you anymore. You're going to be fine and you should just do something lovely for yourself today because you need it and you deserve it.

It's more complicated than that, basically. But yes, no cause to worry - sometimes the bad stuff comes in clumps. It's just that, in these cases, I was the architect of my own bad stuff, which makes it extra galling.

Irony, I had an epic fail this weekend that involved the baking of a cake. Or cupcakes, as it would be.

Re: Not getting a part in a show
Nah, there are good friends of mine that no doubt were cast, and I hope they do very well.
