Oh thank god that's done. Having finals week right after a week of performances is exhausting, and I'm certain that my nervous energy prevented me from getting enough sleep. Then again, most of my classes have been easy subjects for me, I'm really only concerned about introductory engineering (so very much not my forte). But now its done, and I can sleep as much as I like tomorrow.

Oh hey

Hell week starts tomorrow. I know my lines and my blocking but I'm still nervous as all get out. I haven't gotten butterflies before a play in awhile, but then its been two years since my last one. And I've never done more than three performances, one per night; this play, we're doing three performances per afternoon for three days for the campus, then a final night performance for our families.


I just made the butterflies worse. Argh!

I went to one at the local movie theater last night, anyway. Although, neither was actually Rocky Horror. "The Princess Bride" at 6:00, a twenty minute break getting chocolate from the candy store two blocks away, and then "Jurassic Park". The audience for "Jurassic" was only a little bit bigger, but there was a lot more excited energy for it, and even a few people in costume - Doctor Grant, Doctor Malcolm and John Hammond. I hope they show the original Star Wars someday, I'm sure it would be four times as fun.
Got home late, had a quick shower and fell into bed, then had to get up early this morning to go to the airport to fetch Sister home from visiting her boyfriend in Phoenix, Arizona. I'm actually posting this from my iTouch, using Sac International's free wi-fi.

Oh my god, that was great! My first convention and it was awesome. We went first thing to one of the panel rooms to see and hear about "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" and sat through the panel for a television show called "Happy Town" that ended with a screening of the first episode. Its a suspense mystery kinda show, not usually my thing, but it was pretty good. Got to see a segment from "The Prince of Persia" as well as from "The Sorcerer's Apprentice".
Then we hit the floor, and it was packed. I had to hold onto Dad's sleeve so as to not get separated. Lots of cosplayers, but either we or they were heading somewhere so I only got a few pictures. We both enjoyed Stylin Online's booth though we ended up only buying the official Wonder-Con shirt. My favorites were six booths of cardboard boxes full of used comicbook paperbacks, in really good condition at half the new price, and twice I had so many that the vendor gave me half off of that for a few. And just before we left we found the table giving away the Iron Man 2 poster with Scarlett Johansson.

I had a stroke of luck today running errands with the parents. While they looked at the dishes at K-mart, I went to browse the toys, and they were having an action figure sale! It was mostly already picked over, but I did find a Booster Gold and a Blue Beetle II, and Cadet Leonerd McCoy - who I hadn't bought online because I wasn't impressed with the face sculpt, but in person it was much improved. Sadly, there were no more Kirks or Spocks.
Also found *ahem* superhero underwear. I don't care that they're made for guys, they don't make them for girls so I'm gonna wear 'em anyway.

Went early to meet Dad for a ride home and while waiting for the walk light to turn, a man leaned out the window of a passing car and shouted "You're beautiful baby!". I have no idea if he was serious, being playful because its St. Patrick's Day, or drunk because its St. Patrick's Day, but it was still kinda nice to hear.

Update Two

We're all home now. Papa seems to have recovered, if a little tired. What happened was he felt faint at heart rehab, his blood pressure dropped and he passed out. Then his blood pressure went up, and we don't really know why, possibly a reaction to some antibiotics, possibly he's been overworking. They've changed his medicine, ordered him to take it easy and for us to watch him.

Update One

Papa seems to be alright now except for high blood pressure. All I've heard is that his heart "had an episode", but I'm not sure what exactly that means, or what exactly happened, or what will happen. We're all hoping that he doesn't have to have another stent put in.

Change of plans for today. Papa was taken from Heart Rehab to the hospital, Sister and I are going down the hill to be Grannie's helpers and support.

For now my main journal is over on LJ, and this is just for commenting and stalking following other journals.

Here's a nice way to kick off Spring Break: new toys!

I read a lot of books, and I love a lot of books, but the ones that I never get bored with are Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, Dressing a Galaxy by Trish Biggar,  the Elemental Masters Series by Mercedes Lackey, and  The Half-Brothers by Ann Lawrence.
Edit: I haven't read them as often yet, but two that are quickly joining the ranks are Clockwork Heart by Dru Pagliassotti and Movies in Fifteen Minutes by [livejournal.com profile] cleolinda

Second Trailer!

Briefcase armor, omg!

Movie de la semaine: Tim Burton's Batman. I know what I'm doing this weekend!

Okay, so Sister's concert was her big Christmas gift, and mine was the promise of a comic convention; not Comic-Con, too expensive and too far away, so we were gonna go to Sac-Con which offered the possibility of going to more than one this year. But now Dad has offered to take me to Wonder-Con instead!

After being closed for roughly six years, a local movie theater has reopened and started showing no-longer-in-theaters movies. One of the flavors this weekend is the Errol Flynn 'Robin Hood' that was partly filmed in a local park. Its weirdly set up, like the seating for two modern theaters stacked together (really, really high up!), a screen only a third in size, and an itty bitty stage too. A small audience tonight, only twenty-five or so, but it was a lot of fun and the movie has aged well.

The camellia, iris, narcissus and violets are in bloom, the daffodils and almonds are starting to bud, its warm enough to wear sandals and short-sleeves, and when I walked home this evening it was still light out. I love it!

"Da~ad! Why didn't you tell me that 'Wolfman' was a period piece?!"

"Haven't you seen the trailer?"

"When would I have?" (Actually, why wasn't this in front of 'Sherlock Holmes'?)

"... It's a period piece."

"Then I want to go with you to see it."
