I dearly love my friends.

(10:37:22 AM) Lydia: ... I kinda wanna see Zombieland. >.>
(10:37:53 AM) Regan: i've already been informed that we WILL go see it in the theatre ;)
(10:38:09 AM) Regan: i can't resist anything with woody harrelson in it though, esp if he's got a cowboy hat on
(10:38:56 AM) Lydia: I know, right?
(10:39:15 AM) Lydia: I just saw a commercial for it and I was all.. 'ooh, is he wearing Wranglers? *head tilt to admire tight end*'
(10:39:28 AM) Regan: HAHA i think i did the same thing



So there we have it. I think Woody Harrelson (and cowboys!!) is/are hot. And he has a really nice backside. >.>

And [livejournal.com profile] gypsypet continues to rock my world for being my secret soul-sister. <3!

Serenity


Take my love, take my land, take me where I cannot stand...
I don't care, I'm still free. You can't take the sky from me...
Take me out, to the Black, tell 'em I ain't coming back...
Burn the land and boil the sea, you can't take the sky from me..
There's no place, I can't be, since I found Serenity.
You can't take the sky from me.



As [livejournal.com profile] duncandahusky or [livejournal.com profile] takaza mentioned, we got studio goodies last night, along with some other fan stuff from Serenity.

Since Bren and I share just about everything, we really didn't need two of these.

SO... I have the following available to folks that wanted to go to the preview that couldn't (Feren gets first choice, since he was going to go, but his workplace is Evil):

- 1 Serenity pin with the original release date of April 22, 2005
- Temporary tattoo of the 'logo' of the Serenity (the gong with 'Serenity' on it)
- Temporary tattoo of the cartoon Serenity that fans are hoping for (er.. what? :P)
- Glossy release poster (8.5x11) from the studio


There was a keychain too, but I'm keeping that. :P

Serenity in less than 5 hours.


God I am so excited.

One piece is 80% complete. And it's... gasp.. COLOR. And it has a background! I'm finding it a little frustrating to get a good solid swatch of color from colored pencils without making it look flat. I think I may try acrylic/watercolor next time.

I've got vague ideas for my next piece, as this one's a gift and not for sale. I know I want to do something snakey, because snakes aren't done nearly enough, and they're really pretty. Hopefully I can get Snark to pose for some photos for me. ;)

Hopefully too there are enough herp fans that I can sell it. :P

Yesterday we went to see Bourne Supremecy. It was... good. I haven't read the book yet, but I noticed that there were some discrepancies from the first book, Bourne Identity. I haven't seen the movie for Bourne Identity yet.. so I'm sure they took some artistic liscense and changed a few things.

Either way, very good flick, don't expect religious adherance to the novel. I really liked some of the cinematography; at first I found it jumbled and confusing, then I sat back and just... watched instead of trying to figure out what was going on, and it really drew me into the action. Very nice.

We had dinner from Baja Fresh and watched a Discovery special on Imhotep for a while before the art bug called me back to work. I love watching stuff like that. I find ancient Egyptian history utterly fascinating. And I thought it was really neat that they think that Imotep may have been performing modern medical procedures long before Hippocrates. Of course, they suspect that the Aztecs and other South American peoples may have been doing similar, so... who knows? It's fun though.

Tonight (I think) is a thing on the true identity of Christopher Columbus. So don't expect to reach me during that 2 hour time period. I'm gonna be in front of the tv. ;)

This afternoon, we're gonna mosey up to Antioch for no particular reason. We were up in Salem earlier in the week, and we really like the area. So we're gonna do a bit of exploring. We'll pass on hellos for you if we see your family, Jim. ;)

Today really promises to be a relaxing day, and God knows, I really need one. The past few weeks feel as if we haven't stopped moving, and the rest of the coming week doesn't look much better. (Bren, remind me to call Rob and tell him that we're doing Renfaire on Saturday, and to email Glenn and Joe about... the concern we had.)

So anyway. Enough gab. I have a fennec to cuddle and art to complete.

Later folks!

(and by the way. Those that haven't listened to Carbon Leaf, GO. NOW. They have samples of alot of their music available for free download on their website. If they are touring in your area, GO. I'll refund your ticket price if you don't like 'em.)

Had a great day at Summerfest yesterday.

We went to see Troy today, which was fun. I really enjoyed the movie, even though I knew the general gist of the story. I want to reread the Illiad now, and brush up on my Greek mythology. I was ashamed to say I couldn't remember who Hector was until we were in theater.

After reading a recent entry of [livejournal.com profile] saribou's regarding the usage of the term 'fanboy', I've been making efforts to exclude it from my vocabulary. I've found, to my chagrin, that there are a couple of folks of my aquaintance that.... well... no other word sums them up quite as well. I don't mean it in a derogatory sense; I actually feel sorry for this particular friend.. but... yeah. Being with him is sometimes unpleasant due to his.... lack of proper socialization.

I've been in a bit of a funk since we got home. We got to talking about dietary issues after lunch (I ate waay too much today and yesterday) and.. after the movie, my mind just started zeroing in on negative things. I don't think it helped much that my own efforts for better health have pretty much stalled since I saw the nuitritionist. I don't know if I was always this way, or if my body and tastes have changed as I've gotten older, but... geez this is really getting annoyingly hard. :P

Added to the self-depreciation, I found myself angry about a situation that's out of my control. I want to scream and rant and rave at the source of the frustration, but I know that it would be counter productive, and the best thing for me to do is just let it go, and let that person make their choices and deal with the consequences thereof. Even though it's really hard not to yell at them, 'Is this what you really want? Do you see what you're doing?!'

Feh.

I wish I had a more up beat entry tonight. I think stress and fatigue are just catching up to me to the point where I am just not really myself lately. I've been sleeping alot, but I don't really feel like I'm resting. (And yes, I know I'm a very good candidate for sleep apnea. I just.. don't have the energy to deal with another medical problem right now)

I really need this vacation.

New art up.

Saw Harry Potter tonight.

Got possible bad news at doctor.

Don't want to talk about it.

Going to bed now.

Lane Bryant rocks my world.

I ordered my new jeans (along with several other items) late Monday afternoon. They said it would take 1-2 days to process my order and 6-10 business days for shipping.

They arrived yesterday. Booyah!

I didn't get everything I wanted, but I didn't want to spend too much money either. I'll probably go back in a payday or two and order a few more things and pay cash rather than use my credit card.. poor thing saw enough action this month.

Movie night last night was splendid. We took in Fargo and Harold and Maude. Nothing really prepared me for the oddness of Harold and Maude. Even the back blurb synopsis on the dvd case made it sound a lot less... well... strange. It was a fun film, traveling along the transition from rich spoiled child to... er.. rich spoiled man. It's definately worth a watch, I think [livejournal.com profile] chebutykin in particular would enjoy it. It's very easy to forget that the film was made in 1971, and while I thought the ending was a little odd (much like the rest of the film), I rather liked it.

I made stroganoff for dinner, and while it wasn't nearly so good as when [livejournal.com profile] points made it, it definately came out well! The pasta was a bit underdone, and I used too much sauce, not enough cream of mushroom soup. Ah well. Things to keep in mind for next time.

There aren't words to express how happy I am to have friends and a social life. Yes, it's been a bit busy lately, but... There's a lot less drama in our lives, and that is utterly wonderful.

I have new art to scan, I'll probably do so tomorrow morning. Sounds like we're meeting [livejournal.com profile] doomsey and [livejournal.com profile] nekosensai for lunch, which should be fun! :) I have gaming this evening, and we're going to help out AFA tomorrow.

Whee!

It's been an interesting few weeks.

We've had guests galore, and we're heading to Wiscon next weekend. I'm really looking forward to being able to take a breather in June.

On Friday, we attended the first local Movie Night, which, incidentally, we had no hand in starting up. It was vampire night, and we watched Bram Stoker's Dracula and Interview with the Vampire. Both are most excellent movies, and the discussion they prompted was very much enjoyed. We got home very late to the rumblings of thunder and crashed hard.

Saturday morning, we slept way too late, futzed around together for a while, then went up to BDs for lunch. Delicious stirfry was partaken of, then we scooted over to Gamer's Paradise so I could pick up some dice. Much as I love that store, I think I'll start looking around online for my figurine/dice needs. I can get things in bulk from Ebay that are much cheaper (even after paying shipping), and Hawthorne Mall no sense makey.

We got home and I assembled snacks for my night at gaming- several slices of cojack cheese, and a couple of advantage bars. I stopped at Jewel on the way up in the hopes that I could obtain a pepperoni stick- a 12" stick of pepperoni that's done up much like a summer sausage. Tends to be a lot more flavorful and spicey than the precut kind. Alas, my search was in vain, as Jewel likes to move things around all the time. I settled for a round of gouda and some diet coke.

Scooped up Lori and tootled up to Bristol, where we arrived just before the rains started. I must say that sitting in Glen's kitchen with the rain pouring down in the trees behind you is a very pleasant way to watch a storm. When Mike and Dave finally arrived, we found that Mike had left my characters at home. Doh. Okay, so we went over to Glen's computer and used some sort of D&D software to reroll Fielan. I must say I rather like her stats better now. I was quite pleased.

The game was fun and challenging. (See [livejournal.com profile] drgn_ldy's journal. She'll likely have a report up soon) We asked our DM a couple of times if he was trying to kill off the entire party. With some well timed spells and some really nice bow-work (by yours truly... although the fighters helped. Ahem), we overcame the bad guys and ended up with a slew of Exp that I'm sure we'll be updated with via email sometime this week.

Before we left, the storms hit in earnest, and rain was gushing down in torrents. I ran out to the car and was soaked to the skin before I could take two steps. The route we would usually take back to Gurnee was flooded, so we had to take an alternate route. About 5 minutes after turning onto Hwy 50, lightning struck about 10 feet away from the car. I mean, it hit the ground 10 feet away. Both Lori and myself screamed, and I was all the way back to Gurnee before I stopped shaking.

The worst of the storm seemed to be centered on the Bristol/Kenosha area, but I was very very glad to get home last night. Went to bed, and woke up late again this morning.

Eating leftover stirfry for lunch, and plan to do absolutely nothing today. :)
