I'm NiNi, the lead vocalist of CORVO, and this is my personal blog [obviously, I'm an open book]!

I write a little bit about the band here, but mostly about personal and silly stuff. Although I don't blog about myself on the band's page, I don't mind if fans stumble upon this site and read it [if it's truly personal, it doesn't show up here].

The Flickr photo stream and the LastFM music feed drops many hints concerning the band's progress. Singing for CORVO and making art is my life's passion.

Iraqis march, say elections were rigged
Yep, that's American-style Democracy in action for ya. You know, a truck filled with rigged ballots was intercepted in Iraq, but that never made "major" headlines. Of course it didn't.

Does your vote count? NO. Not anymore...

I have a vegetarian "egg MacMuffins" to make, a cheezy Godzilla movie to watch and a husband's company to enjoy this early afternoon...I promise I'll come back for a new post that is way less political and pissed off.

The Where Should You Live Test
Anyone who's hung out with me long enough in blogland knows that G and I are not content in Tulsa. As a matter of fact, the search for our "new city" is going to be greatly accelerated in 2006, especially since G will have had his technical writing job for a year, and I...well...I've practically become furniture at this point in my job, so I'm more than ready to move onward and upward and away-ward.

When I saw this test at Communicatrix's blog, I had to take it. I wonder of Minneapolis would be considered adequate for a "Bohemian Gentrifier" like me? Portland? Seattle? Vancouver? [Cracking UP at that term and the quote]!

This is so true of me, though. I am always the person who is looking for a way to take a potentially bad or "ghetto" situation and spruce it up with a little paint! Flea markets and farmer's markets make me downright giddy, because I love seeing potential in things that look like they should be on their way to the garbage. I love creating something out of nothing...I've had to do it for so long now, it's actually become fun. I definitely tend to think outside of the crackhouse, which is why I'm highly adaptable.

I think it's the Bohemian Gentrifier in me that feels so at home in The French Quarter and San Francisco. I love old, old, centuries-old buildings. I don't mind a little visible decay here and there. I love signs of people taking the old and finding a way to preserve it for today and for the future. It's the misplaced European in me.

Okay so, if you in the bloop take this test, make sure you come back and tell me what ya get!

Rowhouse 'Hood
You scored 28 out of 40 on urban-rural and 29 out of 40 land intensity.

People know you as: The Bohemian Gentrifier
Quote: "That crack house just needed a little paint."

Your score indicates that you are a city-dweller of the old-school. You like a dense, finely grained neighborhood with restaurants, churches and brothels all on the same block. Although you've never spoken to him personally, you know that guy Eddie down the street is a pimp and you're sure to tell your lame suburban friends about him at every opportunity, just to freak them out.

The bad news is that as more and more people like you move into your neighborhood it gradually becomes less cool and more expensive. Enjoy things while you can, because in 5 years you're going to have to move to the next 'hood uptown.

Examples of places you should live: Baltimore, Philadelphia

The Anniversary, The Witch and The Snow
Last Night

Utica Square was beautiful and both of our meals perfect! We had a most wonderful "Anniversary Saturday." Did lots of "annivesary celebration" types of things *clearing throat* and really, really loved celebrating an almost-perfect-actually-even-better-than-perfect first 7 years.


We watched Bewitched last night, and I have to say I really enjoyed it! I will actually be buying the DVD, I loved it so much. It's not ground-breaking by any means, but genuinely enjoyable. It was written very smart, and with a cast like Nicole Kidman, Will Ferrell, Michael Caine, Jason Schwartzmann, Shirley MacLaine and Kristin Chenoweth [who's originally from Tulsa, BTW], you can't go wrong. Plus, I just love witches! Witches, witches, witches.


Speaking of witches, I've got several Wicked items on my "witch list." And I want to BE Idina Menzel. [She is so gorgeous, and has an amazing acting career]. If that musical is EVER done in town by one of our theatres, I'm SO there to audition. Useless-but-fun trivia about me: in my TV career, my voice has been utilized three different times for witch cackles in Halloween commercials/promos - including one this year]! Heeee he he he heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!

[Bonnie, if you ever get to cast Idina in anything, you'd better be ready to at least cast me in an "extras" gig in the project - hee hee]!

[I'm totally getting the acting bug again...I have a feeling I may be doing a show in 2006].

We're getting ready to go to MIL's today - she and Lissa have a birthday prezzie for G. We're gonna make our favorite Tuscan Pumpkin and White Bean Soup for dinner, complete with MIL's famous homemade bread. She's made eggnog which I cannot have, but I've noticed that Silk has a nog out right now, so while they drink the real deal, I'm gonna try the soy deal. It doesn't make me at all sad having to refrain from the real stuff...I'm just thankful there's an alternative available to me.


Just for shits and giggles, G and I are going to work on our first "cover" song over the holidays. We've started Corvo with five original songs...I think at this point, we're not wimps for wanting to create a fun cover song. I'm keeping the identity of this song under wraps for now, because I love being a tease...and I guarantee, you won't be expecting this one [it's pretty much something you'd never think a gothic metal band would cover].

I hope that you're all having a fantastic weekend! I'm so happy that G and I have OFF tomorrow. Maybe I won't feel the need to maim people at work when we're back on Tuesday.

By the way, it looks and feels like it still might snow...I hope s[n]o[w]!
