Post Halloween Depression

Here's more photos from Dark Delicacies. Lorraine and I have been so lonesome since she went home. When she's here it'a none stop party. Then, I go back to real life doing housework, readings, and modeling. Hey! IT could be worse. One day we were traveling and stopped at a gas station at 6 am. A lady was cleaning the toilet and told Lorraine, "Things couldn't be better." That put things into perspective for us. Just when you think your life is a mess, there's someone there to lift you up and show you what life's about. Like last week when we were getting off the freeway and a homeless guy with one leg said, "Hey! Keep your head up! Life isn't so bad!" I felt so guilty going home to my prince and my baby bean. I will never complain again.

BTW, Where is everyone? We get used to all the cool comments and such. Oh! And we'd like to thank the cool fan who send Miss Fabulous the Rainbow Bright watch and the twinkie lip gloss. Hey, we love it!

I have a reading in an hour.... I'm just sitting around today trying not to eat my daughter's Halloween candy. It's very hard to WANT to eat celery and edamame beans when there's chocolate around. What's a corset model to do? Karolyn and I are working on getting the new corsets out. They are SO sexy. You will see them here first! I can't wait. I think it's safe to say the guinnes book of world records will be calling me soon. He ehee. I will bring a bunch to Balticon for everyone to play dress up.

Lorraine and I are already working on the next album. I've almost got Lorraine talked into doing an editorial photo shoot with me for the St. Pattie's Day EP. Think green metallic corsets and fishnets. Very Rocketts. She's such a good sport. It's not easy having a fashion victim as a best friend. He hee.

Lorraine's Boss is off on the UK tour, so "It's just me and Eve" so to speak. Remember, we are having a web party at the end of every month on the 30th! Let the corset training and chocolate eating begin.

That's an excellent picture of you three! I am making butternut squash and pear soup. If it turns out well, I'll share the recipe, if you'd like. Oh, and are you gals still wanting pictures of everyone dressed up for Halloween?

Oh course darling! Yes yes yes! Lorraine would love the recipe and so would I. Send the photos and I'll post them.

Yum, that soup does sound good -btw appleblossombeck, I tried the pork recipe (many posts back) and it was awesome - thanks!! My daughter didn't get to go trick or treating here, but aaagh...I picked up a couple bags of Christmas candy. And it's too early to I know, but the wrappers were so pretty...and they are now constantly beckoning me to join the dark side.

I would love to see the corset training! Something I have always been too chicken to wear, and they seem so glamorous and sexy. Is the time set? (So I make sure this time I don't fall asleep on the couch, I'll do it in front of the computer instead) The picture is great - and it sounds as if you had a great time!

How does 9 p.m. EST sound?

November 30th at 9 p.m. Everyone!

You're welcome, ivenotime! That recipe's one of my favorites. The squash did turn out well, so here's that recipe. Yay cooking!
Butternut And Pear Soup
1 1lb butternut squash
1 large yam
2 cups vegetable broth
1 1/2 cups water
1 cinnamon stick
2 tablespoons butter (but I used less)
1 medium sweet onion, sliced
3 large pears (it's ok for them to be a little unripe, since you cook them)
1/3 cup white wine
1/4 cup half-and-half
salt and pepper to taste

Peel, seed and dice the squash; peel and dice the yam. Put both in a soup pot with the water, broth and cinnamon. Simmer until tender (about 40 minutes). Discard the cinnamon stick. Peel, core, and thinly slice the pears. Melt the butter in a sautee pan and cook the oinion until it just begins to caramelize. Add the pears to the onion, and cook for about 5 minutes. Add the wine, cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Add the pear mixtures to the soup pot, and puree everything in batches in a blender. Add cream, salt and pepper. Heat the soup again *just* to a simmer; do *not* boil. Serve.

Now, I have to admit that I did not use the onion. I didn't have any and I don't like onions anyway. So, if someone makes this with onion, let me know how that tastes. Enjoy!

And thank you Appleblossombeck as that recipe sounds very yummy and wish I could have some now - its a dark and stormy night here so it would be a perfect night for soup and a blanket and a pile of books instead of the bills I am working on (Friday night no less, my life could be a bit more exciting!)ah well! Malena, I hope you are feeling better, its always hard to go back to the routine after such a fun and exciting week - I wish you many many more exciting and fun times!

i am buried in work. Most likely things will be like this til the end of the year. But, the fall is always my busy time, so i'm not complaining. just very tired.

For your amusement, check out what i did for one of my clients for Halloween: DA Halloween Party or DEATH!

i did all the custom art and set up the web page, and my client put the functionality in. And yes i am in there **devilish grin**

And, Malena, bringing a bunch of corsets to Balticon sounds like a smashing idea! Would you be interested in doing a corset panel??

Okay, I just have to share this, 'cause I think it was sooo cool. I was watching the remains of this storm blowing outside my windows, and then the red-shouldered hawk (I think) that lives in my neighborhood showed up and was playing in the wind, making 90 degree banks and holding still and hovering (because the wind was so stiff). It was awesome, but then the local murder of crows showed up, 5 of them, and started to harass the hawk! He tried to swoop at the crows once or twice, but he backed down since they outnumbered him, I guess. But, even better is that the word must have gone out on the Crow hotline, because then about 10+ more crows showed up to chase off the hawk! There were at least 15, maybe 20 crows swooping around and playing and cawing like mad! Crows are my favorite, although that hawk is cool too. Anyway, it was really neato and I just had to share!

You ask where we all are... we are all glued to the music...listening to the beautiful vocals.... trying to compose a proper letter to express how fantastically gorgeous the CD is. (especially "Personal Thing," "Fairyland" and of course "Dark Sonnet").. anyway... thats where one of us is.

Malena would be happy to do a corset panel. I am sure of it. Very sure. ( says her little guinea pig/poster child ) if she can talk me into wearing one she can talk anyone into it!

I so have to make this soup! Oh yes....Lovely story about the hawk and crows, they are my favourites too. Birdchick, who is off at WFC this weekend, would be proud!

I'm so glad you like the music. Now you know me a little better.
I wish I could see that! I love crows too. We have a few fake ones perched over the bookcases.
Getting back into the swing of things now. Last night I modeled 18 corsets. 8 more to go. Today I'm in bed eating yogurt and granola...and cherries. It sounds better than it was, I really wanted a cheeseburger. He hee.

I did your webgame halloween party. Very cute Diva! I need to get our myspace music site going strong.

A corset panel! Darhhhhhhhing. I am so there. With make-up kit in hand m'dear. Everyone will get Malena'd out! We could tell everyone to bring a black piece of clothing and some black eyeliner. hhe hee. (You can do alot with a pair of scissors and some safety pins. I know, I was a 80's goth in Idaho long ago.)
So, let's plan it out my fellow web weaver!

At 2:12 PM , Blogger Malena Medium Cool said...

Lorraine and I are planning to do a "Late Night with Nocturna" web party just for YOU in your part of the world. What would be good for your time zone?
I can just see this spiraling into........
"AAAAAnnnd now, the Lorraine aaaaaaaaa' Malena showwwww" (complete with vegas style announcer) he hee

At 4:22 PM , Blogger ravyn said...

malena - there is something about "goth in Idaho" that is vaguely disturbing **snicker**

The corset panel sounds great. We are fast-approaching the time of year when we set up programming, so i'll send this idea to our program coordinator.

Is the gmail address the best way to reach you? i need some registration information from you (i think i have Lorraine's info already, heh)

At 4:22 PM , Blogger Rubius said...

A web party sounds absolutely splendid. (not quite sure I know how it works - I use msn for messaging most often)...Time zone wise, I am on Pacific Standard Time (if that helps)... looking forward to it...

(I have been humming tunes from the cd all day)

At 6:03 PM , Blogger Malena Medium Cool said...

Email me at: and we'll talk. Yeah! I've already advertised it on my site:

At 10:03 PM , Blogger Rubius said...

I am afraid that my last post wasn't terribly useful.. I would make it a point to attend any web party ... regardless of time. I am (sadly) a 8:30-5ish M-F worker so (sadly) not a night owl at the moment. Looking forward to it... what day would it be?

At 7:25 AM , Blogger Malena Medium Cool said...

We'd be happy to do a web party at a good time for the day people. I know my schedule is NOT normal. What time would everyone like it to be? What day is good? Are weekends better? Let's work it out!

I emailed Lorraine a week ago gushing about "Marilyn" promising that I'd follow up with a fuller review, so here it is:

I cannot get "Me & Eve" out of my head. Seriously. Every freaking waking minute of the past three days I've found myself singing it. It's, honestly, starting to drive me a bit batty. That's what I get for listening to the cd twice a day every day since it arrived.

I absolutely *adore* "Personal Thing". I had high hopes for it when I saw it was going to be on the cd and you two do not disappoint! It's my favorite song, I think. Your voice, btw Malena, is pure magic.

I was so tickled when the first strains of "Marilyn" floated out, the first time I listened to the cd. I don't know how I failed to make the connection between the track name and the song when looking over the track listing on the site, especially given that Folk Underground played it at Fiddler's Green. I love Dan Bern and it's so, so cool to hear you doing one of his songs.

I'm reading my kids some Jane Yolen books before bed lately, and I was very impressed with "Song of the Caileach Bheur", which I'm going to have to play for them.

In short: I love love LOVE the album.

I'm glad you and Miss Fabulous got my care package! After she mentioned you calling her a goth Rainbow Bright I knew I had to find one more thing to include before mailing it off.

Miss Fabulous is, as we all know, so entirely fabulous! She went though a bit of trouble on my behalf a while back involving a miraculous tea pot and I wanted to show my gratitude.

Ah, yes, the weeping teapot, I remember it well......
