I am alive! I'm just terribly lackadaisical about posting. I'm STILL not up on the flist, so my apologies. Any big news that I've missed?
I felt like I should put down more coherant thoughts on the movie, but...I'm lazy, and it's all been rehashed a thousand times anyway. Right now I'm all a-squee over X-Files Marathon #2
tomorrow (sorry, lunayoshi
, but it's just not worth the hour's drive up for half a day. Tell us when you have a full day off and we'll see what we can do! Also, so need to go see movie again. Call me!).
Trip to Minnesota was wonderful. It was actually quite fun being a bridesmaid. The dress cost a fortune and is pretty much unusable ever again, but it was actually much prettier than I expected. There was lots of dancing, good food, good company. I made a new friend with another one of the bridesmaids - too bad she lives so far away! Anyways, there was the requisite amount of drama (groom acted like a 2-year old at times, and sister had a minor meltdown complete with family argument), but what else can you expect at a wedding? ;) The rest of the vacation went well - watched some movies with mom, visited the Minnesota Zoo (chatted with a very nice lady at the bird show about job opportunities...doing the bird show at the MN Zoo is a dream for me. I should send her a thank you note), ate ice cream and bought some new socks. Best part of the whole thing was July 25, squeeing with you all and meeting dashakay
. I only wish we could have chatted longer, Dasha!
Anyways, back to usual here. Work work work. Boss is being pig-headed, but I'm having breakthroughs in the training of Kitambi, a young porcupine. Training that porc is the best part of my day - he's come so far and is so close to being put in shows! I'm bound and determined to get him in the show before we end September 9th. Speaking of, that is the day I return to unemployment, so I'm heading back into the job search (BLEAGH!! WHY?!?! I just finished with all of that sh*t!). So yay me. */sarcasm* In better news, I finished Parabiosis
upon my return, which was just as astoundingly catching as the first time. Reaching the end was like reaching the end of the Harry Potter books - what can I possibly read now that will match it?
I watched a Nova
special last night on Global Dimming, and it was depressing. Really, really depressing. I want to hide my head in the sand sometimes.
Oh! I got the XF2 soundtrack and am loving it. Dying 2 Live
has actually grown on me, but Broken
sends me into thrills, as it puts me right back in that theater seat with..ummm...you know what at the end of the credits. ;) Other favorites include No Cures/Looking for Fox
, What If You're Wrong/Sister
, and The Surgery
. That's all for now. I'm finding voiceposts much easier than writing out actual entries, so I may do more of those. Much love to all of you!
