Brrrr... It is so flippin' cold. I nipped out to have a look at the lunar eclipse an hour ago but had to rubbish the idea on account of the neighbourhood's trees being whipped by the wind
. Meh, I'll have to watch it on the news.
Right now I'm juggling watching Law & Order Criminal Intent, packing for the trip, cleaning up the room, watching a DVD of the Justice League, paying my bills online, and thinking up something to eat before bed. Argh argh argh, I know, anyone sane would have packed days ago :( I like doing stupid stuff, apparently.
Wondercon! XD By the way, io9.com is sponsoring a benefit for the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund
on Saturday night (details here). I'd love to go but there's the special premiere of The New Frontier that ends with a panel with those involved. Now I'm a sucker for Darwyn Cooke, specially if he's talking cos the man's funny and speaks the truth. I'll probably be there starstruck till midnight. Anyway, the benefit is 8 to 11pm. Hope I can make the couple of blocks that night. Otherwise, my contribution will be to the website as per usual! Oh - Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny will be at the 'con. Heh, if only I still had the X files crack fics to read to them.
Another piece of good news: the other party in the accident accepted liability! YES! According to the estimation, the damages to my car are worth $4,000 but it will all be taken care of by insurance. I wish there were an emoticon for the crazy silly dance I'm doing right now. Ahem. I was hoping to have it started before I left, but next Tuesday's the date. Gar will be fixed and happy within 2 weeks. YAY.
Remember my gyro post? Vegan Dad posted his recipe
and it looks scrummdiddlyicious! I can't wait to try out his Tzatziki sauce on potatoes, mmmm...
Oh, I wish I could end this rambling post with something good. I mean, I won't be back until next Monday and probably will not post till Tuesday. Gotta end it coherently, right?
Nope. Happy belated birthday Batman!
