THE STAR

The Star is one of the most unequivocally bright spots in the pantheon of the Arcane. She is a show-off, but without the characteristic arrogance of the Sorcerer, performing half in order to get a pleasurable reaction from the audience, half simply because she enjoys the performance. The purpose of any showboating the Star does is to get a laugh or a smile out of her friends, those around her. She is at her best when amongst a crowd of people, familiar with at least most of them, engaging their attention in some way.

Stars are most often connected with the performance arts, utilizing these gifts to entertain their friends and keep a certain amount of levity in their lives. A Star may be a musician, an actor, a comedian, or a dancer; if she does not use these skills in her professional life she may well practice them in her private life. Sometimes a Star is involved in a social profession that, while it involves no actual performance as such, offers her an opportunity to mingle with and meet a number of people from a variety of walks of life. She may act as counselor or devil's advocate to her friends in need, offering a pragmatic or down-to-earth view so gracefully that it does not abrade the emotions unnecessarily. Usually following a talking-to, she turns around and offers comfort and cheer.

Stars are generally low-maintenance and require only a little time to vent or rest or otherwise dispose of the stress they have built up over a period of caring for their friends. However, a Star who gets too little of this may fall into a deep depression or, worse, an almost psychotic malaise. Fallen Stars often become Sorcerers simply out of taking too little time for themselves, the stress of bad situation after bad situation clouding their judgment until they start midway down a Sorcerer's path. Already possessing the charisma and social skills, it isn't that far from manipulating emotions towards happiness and ease from manipulating them any way the Star chooses.

He wants to marry me. And is thinking about kids.

I'm going shopping. Retail therapy and some serious spa time is most definitely called for.

...Possibly copious amounts of alcohol in the form of margaritas, too. I don't care about the carb count.

ETA: ...And I said I'd move in with him. I have strict no living with guys rules. They leave toilet seats up and socks lying around and I have way too much stuff...

Yeah, those margaritas are so a go.

So...my agent woke me up this morning at like 7, and told me I had to be downtown by 9 (who the fuck gets anywhere by 9?) because she'd gotten me an audition as Fiona, for Shrek the Musical.

I mean, Meg's a good role and all, but she's a supporting character. Fiona's a lead.

So, we'll see?
lumieredetoiles: (Stronger)
Ok, filming all day is exhausting. I don't know how people do this all day every day five to six days a week. I mean, when we're in rehearsals it's long, and I'll admit that the shows themselves are more demanding than filming acting-wise, and my Saturdays are always long, but God.

It's like stop and go and do it again and then do it again this way for the other camera and pretend the camera is your partner instead of another person so they can get close up reaction shots, and it's just ... yeah.

Day 1, and I think we got like five scenes done maybe?

Ok, shopping accomplished. Baileigh, you were a live saver, seriously.

Packing done.

Off to Miami for a couple of days.

Kee, I left out an extra couple of bowls of food for Calypso, but would you swing by on Tuesday to check on her and change her water? Thanks, bb. *smooch*

See y'all when I get back.
lumieredetoiles: (...What?)
Okay, fuck...um...

Right.

I need at least one new bikini. Maybe two.

A couple of things for dancing.

And it's not like I can't take things I already have because he hasn't seen them or anything? But, hi. I want new.

And lingerie. Clearly. Which obviously has to be all new. So.

And I need it by Monday.

This was not my most brilliant timing of a plan, ever.

No time tonight, as the show won't be done before 11, and I won't be out of here before midnight, so. Tomorrow it is.
lumieredetoiles: (Sensual amusement)
Because I just picked these up today to go with this, and I really want to wear them.

WTF, why is it still February?

Unacceptable.
