Still writing game for san-checking this weekend. Hopefully, it will be done in time. Work has been slow recently so I had lots of time on my hands. First off, to fulfill a child-like fantasy, I bought a video camera to audition for "The Real World". I know it's silly, but I didn't want to have any regrets. (The "coulda, woulda, shoulda" feeling) In addition, the 12-volume David Copperfield performances arrived from Singapore yesterday. Haven't seen him walk through the Great Wall since I was 7. That and game gave me something to do while the new Buffy premiere was being taped. It had the same expectations as Enterprise (with the same results). Oh well.

As for today, I finally purchased the last two pieces of my Gundam Wing video collection: (1) The final volume on VHS, and (2) the real Endless Waltz Special Edition DVD. Now, I can churn pages of character sheets like nothing before. I just have to remember that (1) I'm meeting the charming, sexy, talented, fiery redheaded Auror tonight, (2) I may be meeting the charming, talented, fiery redhead Rigel tomorrow night at the Ig Nobels, and (3)I'm going to a B-day mob for the charming, talented, fiery not-so-redhead Questioner Friday night. In addition to Shadowdawn Saturday, this will be one of my busiest weeks.

I love this planet.

It has been a while since my last entry due to recent events. I should start off on Friday when I came home during my lunch break to find out that my grandmother had a stroke. You don't realize how much you would miss someone until the possibility finally arrives. We had a falling out after a while due to distance, but all that disappeared when I called her from her hospital room. I was amazed to talk to her considering the fact that she had a stroke. I had Thrawn's SO talk to me about a worse case, but I'm glad that is not the case. I just found out today that she was released from the hospital to the relief of my entire family, including my father who is older than her (long story).
Fortunately, auror convinced me to go to Dralion with a bunch of my friends. Thrawn was fortunate enough to have a spare ticket, though it was for a solo seat. This was fine considering that I found out my ex-SO, Ween, was also joining us. More on that later. The performance was awe inspiring. The baffoons were funny. I liked the music, the acrobatics, and the overall flow. They gave me new ideas for my next Legends character which will be a Tor Aquillon. I even enjoyed one of the perks of attending a Canadian-based show: the purchase of Chardonnay at the concessions stand. For the record: white wine goes great with popcorn. Much to the dismay of auror, of all the souvenirs I could have purchased at the show, I invested $3 on a clown's nose. I needed the laugh considering what happened with my grandmother. This carried on to dinner where I sat between two of the quietest people in the table: Ween and Wicka, Thrawn's SO. Ween and I haven't spoken to each other since a wedding over two months ago, and now I'm seeing her during zebediah's move, Dralion, dinner, and (later) a housewarming party for three days straight. Talk about feelings of awkwardness. To this day, I still don't know whether to hate her or thank her for what she did. It was her break-up that allowed me to reject monogamy, be introduced to polyamory, and fall for auror. I am no longer the hopeless romantic, for I know that nothing is forever and I know true pain. Happily ever after doesn't exist. We pretty much had little to say to each other even though we were right next to each other.

Anyway...
Saturday was much better. After a semi-successful Shadowrun (another long story involving cybertrolls and elves), I went to a housewarming party hosted by rigel, bester, truthspeaker among others. It was a great party. Anime, gigaseconds of UNIX, and game oh my. Also, there were so many fine, foxy ladies to talk to. Bester may have convinced me to become a Mac user. And the thought of rigel with nearly all of her past and current SOs was interesting. I partied until late. It was all good. It is because of this that justifies my Livejournal mood. Just wished I did more on Sunday than sleep 60% of the day and saw "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" at LSC.
