Some new stuff (finally!)

Hey everyone,
It's been a crazy few weeks. Two weeks ago, as of my birthday-week, I/we have:

  • gone to a Weird Al Yankovic concert (the guy rocks!!),
  • attended a WSFA meeting,
  • took a trip to New Jersey for my sister's 40th birthday,
  • interviewed for a job at NIJ (that I didn't get--big deal).

And Kat took a trip to NYC that involved:

  • an early morning jog from our condo to Van Dorn Metro (it's about a mile away)
  • nightmare difficulties getting home on Sunday (she ended up traveling 7.5 hours, I was traveling for about four)

All in all, it's been a rough couple weeks.

And I know I owe you pictures of the kittens. We do have some real neat ones but are still stuck on the names. Janet and Chrissy may well end up being their names, who knows.

In the meantime, visit Bugles Planet Daily and keep on reading!

Kat and I are getting kittens tonight. They are adorable, two van calico females, 11 weeks old. Their current names are Janet and Chrissy ("Three's Company"-- our shelter is kind of wacky that way). I'll post pictures as soon as we have them in the house and settled down.

Kat's a little nervous about having pets. It'll work out.

Oh, and I'm 43 today.

later, all!

Pushing Daisies-- another plug!

Hey everyone!
Just a reminder: keep an eye out for Pushing Daisies. Kat and I have told EVERYONE in DC about the show, which we hope will boost ratings by word of mouth into the stratosphere. Loved the show, hope it lasts for many years.
Not much going on right now, but we're off to NJ this weekend for Beth's birthday party. (She's having her birthday the week of MY birthday... go figure.)
Anyway, take care of yourselves and stay cool!

Look at our Pushing Daisies panel photos here; Kat took some nice shots!

Hey gang!
Kat and I went to Comic-Con and yes, we have pictures. I'll upload them this weekend, I promise! But here are some highlights:

  • had a hotel room that was absolutely beautiful, courtesy of a good friend;
  • caught up with a bunch of old WildStorm colleagues over the weekend, which was absolutely great;
  • American Dad panel was awesome!
  • ditto the Cartoon Voices panel--Maurice LeMarche and Jess Harnell are still my heroes;
  • if there is any justice, Pushing Daisies will be the big hit of the '07-'08 TV season-- and Kristin Chenoweth is one funny lady (look for YouTube footage of their panel!);
  • Kat and I hung out Sunday afternoon with Mike Carey, comic book writer extraordinaire and hardest working man in comics;
  • got pictures of the Mach 5, Batmobile and Tony Stark's car;
  • saw Rosario Dawson out in San Diego and said hi and good luck with her comic book (she said "thanks!");
  • got a glimpse of the crated-up Iron Man armor Mk 1 at the Marvel booth;
  • got a look at some upcoming Justice League Unlimited toys from Mattel;
  • generally suffered the battering and abuse that comes with struggling through about 100k others, all generally interested in the same things I am;
  • and so on.

There's a LOT I'm forgetting but will occur to me later, so keep an eye on this space!
