I’m trying to do this once a month, religiously and regardless of how busy I am. And since I’m, like, not busy at all right now, I figured it was time to spew some more pointless nonsense. Yipeeee!
Just got back from Wizard World in LA. Such a tease.... I was only in town two days and had no time to visit my favorite restaurants, coffee shops, shoe stores, clubs, etc. I didn’t even feel like I was really in LA at all until I experienced the rush hour traffic on the 10 heading to the airport on my way home. Something I definitely don’t miss. Anyway, a good time was had by all, as usual. Got to see some cool little Mal-and-Jayne action figures (and even got to see them kiss), some sketches of what some of our characters are going to look like all comic-booked out (cooooool), and got to see a clip with a few added special effects from the movie. My what’s-Serenity-going-to-look-like-once-it’s-done cravings are somewhat curbed... for the moment.
I know I’ve said this before, but let me shove it down your throat again, cuz I can. I am absolutely FLOORED at how much support we have from our fans. I just found out that there’s actually a Vancouver Firefly meet up group... it’s just too tempting not to find out where they’re meeting next. What do they talk about at these meetup groups, I wonder? What goes on? Is there drinking?
What else is new? Um, not much. I’m feeling very domestic lately. I’m cooking a lot, but that’s not new. Just bought my fourth pair of shoes in one month, which is disgusting. They only had one size left, a half size smaller than what I really am, but I’m too ashamed to say anything about it and have continuously paraded around the house, limping around in them, insisting that they have to be "stretched out, that’s all". What else? OH and I’ve been playing Pac-Man. Yes, life is truly exciting.
It’s so funny because whenever I’m working, I’m dying for vacation time or time to just goof off and do whatever... and when I’m not working, I’m antsy and feeling guilty because I’m doing nothing. I’ve actually started going to the gym, which isn’t right, so it’s clear that I have way too much time on my hands. Enjoy it while it lasts, though, right?
I’m singing at a friend’s show in a couple of weeks, at a bar here in town called the Oasis. Just a couple of songs, as a favor, really. He’s a "real singer" so I might regret this, but who cares? Something to do, and my husband’s emceeing it, so yet another excuse for me to participate. It’ll be fun. Hey, you Vancouver meetup people, come to my friend’s show! It’s on April 3.
That’s the latest.
