Choir

I joined a workplace choir a few weeks ago and we have our first performance a week on Saturday. It;s weird singing in a choir because I'm used to everything being about MY vocal and no-one else's! When you sing in a band you sing in the key which is the most comfortable for your voice but in a choir you have to kind of pick the nearest range. I'm a mezzo soprano so the soprano parts are a little bit high for me and the contralto parts are a little bit low. (We only have soprano parts, contralto parts and men's parts because we're a small choir).

Also some of the arrnagements are different tunes than the traditional versions, and they're pitched really high for some reason so it's harder than I thought it would be. Oh for the luxury of having the band fit around you!

Help me and pledge to do a Random Act of Kindness

Dear Beloved Compatriots, Sexual Deviants and Beans, 

I'm taking part in a Guinness World Record attempt where we're trying to get 100,000 people to pledge to do a Random Act of Kindness before the end of 2012. It's called GISHWHES and the website is http://www.gishwhes.com/ 

Cost = nothing. Time = 4 seconds. All you need to do is comment with your email and I will email you the link to pledge to do a random act of kindness before the end of the year. Comments will be screened.

As my personal act of kindness I will do, when requested, any one of the following - 

write a 500 word mini fic of your choice
make you a graphic or icon
send you a lovely Christmas card 

I love you!



Mood keep calm

Dear UK Flisters,

I know I'm preaching to the choir with you guys when it comes to LGBT equality, but believing something is fair and actually getting off your bum and doing something about it doesn't always follow like it should. So here's a little (and slightly preachy) reminder!!

Three things I'd like you all to do before you go to bed tonight (if you haven't already)

1/ Go here and sign the C4EM's petition for marriage equality. This is the simplest and probably most visible way to show your support. It currently has 60,000 signatures -- the petition against (by C4M) has over 500,000!!!

2/ Go here and fill out the government's consultation. It might take a little bit longer, but you can bet that for every pro-person who doesn't find the time, there will be dozens of 'anti' people who will.

3/ Email your MP. There's a handy template there for you to use so you don't even have to think of what to say. Also, you can go here to see where your MP stands on the issue. A hugely important thing to do because the majority of MPs will be voting with their conscience rather than following the party line, so make sure you let yours know your feelings.

4/ Okay, so I lied. There's actually a fourth thing. And that is simply spread the word. The consultation ends in two day - it's our last chance to get as many people mobilised as possible. So tweet it, Facebook, blog it, beat your friends and family around the head with it until they give in!!! And if you want to repost to your own journal (and please feel free to edit), here's an ever-so helpful button

ONTD GOT?

Is there an ONTD journal for Game of Thrones? I've tried all the usual names but they've either never existed or been purged
