Few things can make me both so happy and sad as a wonderfully incoherent phone call from all my best pals calling from the dance floor of Club Vivid. Love you guys, thanks for thinking of me. Really wish I could be there to hug and kiss you all in person. Honestly, if there had been any way, I would have tried to go. Love you.

In other news, I think I found an apartment. So that's good. :)

FINALLY, the end of the meme.


Day 30 - Favorite Character of Color

Copying [personal profile] killabeez again, because I can, here is a short list of some of my favorite characters of color.

clicky )

In other news, sending all my love to those attending VVC. Part of me wishes I could join you, but also part of me is a bit overwhelmed these days and am quite happy to hear about all the fun second hand.

I realized the other day that even if I had the wherewithal to attend VVC this year, I wouldn't have been able to anyway, since one of my closest friends is getting married this Friday, and therefore I have to be in San Diego most of the weekend. This is how out of it I am -- the significance of the two events occuring on the same weekend didn't even cross my mind until about two weeks ago. haha. So, it all works out in the end.


[1] Um, how is it that I've seen Star Trek: Voyager at least 3 times all the way through and don't have a memory of the episode entitled "Author, Author"? And the creation of the character Katanay in the Doctor's holonovel Photons Be Free? I'm... speechless.

I think I better do this now, or it'll never get done. :)

I'm going through these in the order they are in the program book, and from my sketchy memory, and stuck to vids that were new to me, with one exception. Also, I was out late to a Dodgers game last night, and previously was up late writing, and then got no sleep at VVC, so, you know, my comments are limited to the "omg things go boom shiny want moar" variety.

I'm home from VVC! Which was wonderful, as usual, and I had a blast and got to see all of my favorite people although there is never enough time to see and hang out with people enough. sadness. Con report perhaps tomorrow.

~~~

Hey, so I came home to find out I was wait-listed for the Djerassi Artisit-In-Residence Program! I'm rather ridiculously pleased. :D I mean, I would have LOVED being selected (although overwhelmed) but I kind of had no expectation and rather thought I'd get a rejection, and applied mostly because I love the entire concept of artists-in-residence programs and it's kind of a dream of mine to experience something like it. For Djerassi, over 700 apply and 60 get selected for month long residencies throughout 2010, and I'm on "alternate status" for my chosen discipline (Literature). The other disciplines are Choreography, Music Composition, Visual Arts, and Media Arts/New Genres. :D :D :D yay!

eta: here is a little video about the program.

So, I have these two real life friends, a couple, whom I adore. They think my yearly trip to Chicago is super mysterious (I have *tried * to explain it to them, but I think they like the mystique more) and they're all nudge nudge wink wink, oh right, "Chicago", uh huh. It makes me laugh. What happens in Chicago, stays in Chicago.

This is all by way of saying I'm Vividconning. whee! check you all later.

So many people are doing rec pages that I'm not so sure mine will really add anything, since I'm mostly repeating what other people say, but hey, what the heck. These are all premiering vids. I was gonna do some non-premiering vids, but this got kind of long and at one point I do have to do some work today. You can see me run out of steam as my comments get shorter and shorter. :D

Vids! )

Woo. That took longer than I thought.

Back home all safe and sound from VVC. I had an awesome time, didn't get much sleep, miss everyone terribly all ready. I'm not going to kid myself by saying I'm going to do a con report because I know I'm not, but as soon as the vids are online, I'll be recommending several I saw this weekend that made me *extremely* happy.

Aside from awesome vids, there was lots of fans to hugs, a little bit of Hustle to make me happy (Mickey Bricks, more awesome than awesome, y/y?), I got lots of time with people that I love a great deal whom I never see. Of special note, I managed to hound [livejournal.com profile] settiai long enough for the both of us to wrestle our respective hard drives into submission and so now I have in my possession all of Classic Who, plus other goodies, including Blackpool, of which I am more intrigued by the concept of the show than the actual show.

Flight was easy peasy. Had added bonus of flying with Fishbone, only one of coolest bands to come out of the eighties LA music scene. And when I say flying with I mean sat right next to, so that was cool and entertaining.

My brain is swiss cheese. I need rest, especially since I'm suppose to be horseback riding tomorrow morning! d'oh!

Leaving for the airport in about 3 hours. Still have a ton of stuff to do. Can't wait to see my peeps at VVC.

August is crazy. I got VVC (which I have to confess sort of snuck up on me, in that I kept thinking of it as something far away until all of a sudden it was right on top. d'oh!), the day after I get back I have an 8am riding lesson, then the weekend after I'm in Vegas for BFF's birthday, and then I'm still rewriting the novel, trying to write fan fic and FAILING, and horseback riding is taking all of my free attention, and then there's the social life which is abuzzing, things achurning, and I think I may have to start looking for a new job because this one doesn't pay me enough. wah.

er, and now I'm powering down the 'puter. 'Ta!!

VVC!!! WOO!!!

So, I spent all day yesterday thinking I had left my cell phone at home, only to come home to find no cell phone anywhere. Where was it? At work. Under a whole lotta files and paperwork. Yes, ladies, I am that much of an airhead. *takes a bow*

~~~

[livejournal.com profile] astolat and I were commiserating and complaining to each other about our respective fandoms.

I was all "OMG with the FIGHTING and the WANK and why did I have to go and get involved with a fandom where the characters LEAVE and even the Doctor changes and you just have to accept it! And even the writers aren't spared. WOE."

And she was all "DUDE, try American Idol. It's WORSE because at the end of each season it's like they DIE, the show kills off all of the characters! TRY THAT."

And then I was all "OMG you're right! That is worse!" *clings to DW*

hee.

~~~

The Dark Knight and The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus )

~~~

I like Simon Pegg. He should be cast in stuff I watch all the time. Hollywood, please provide, ty. *flutters eyelashes at him*. link once again courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] cleolinda.

I've been mostly silent on the upcoming new Star Trek film because it looks too good to be true and some of the casting, I must confess, leaves me a little cold, but [livejournal.com profile] killabeez is working hard to make me excited for it. :D

~~~

VVC is right around the corner!! woo.

I got back yesterday, all safe and sound. I'm at work today, and having a harder than usual time getting back into the swing of things. *wry smile*

Had a fabulous time, of course. Will do a write up later, possibly. Most of the weekend is a bit of a blur, actually, more than usual, but I'll manage a con report of some sort.

Hi hi. I've been absent, totally not reading LJ, haven't a clue what's going on, if anything, generally off in my own head, and, typically, real life is silly busy. buh. And! I am on a plane early tomorrow morning (please let me get up on time, please let me get up on time, please let me get up on time). So, I'm going to be even more absent. I'm sure you would all cry buckets if I actually had anything of worth while to say. ;) Miss me! Ta!
