You don't post very often and are busy with your life, but I am still glad when we cross paths. It makes me smile to see that you're signed into IM even if we're both busy. You've been a wonderful friend to me during some rough times.
Here's wishing you a wonderful birthday, adi!
Last night, September and I went out to dinner. We met up at Diesel and then wandered off in search of food. We had reached Rosebud's and were about to turn around when she noticed a new sign that said "La Spina" (no website for them!) and mentioned Italian food. We decided to give it a shot.
This turned out to be a busy, and movieful weekend. On Saturday, we watched the MST3k version of Eegah. That movie was... special. Afterwards, we chased that down with Thank You for Smoking. I hadn't heard of it before, but my movie watching companions had both seen it before and thought we should all watch it. I'm glad we did. It was a very well done movie.
Last night, a group of us went to Boston Commons and saw Pan's Labyrinth. That was also a good movie. Watching a subtitled movie is a little distracting for me (it's harder to remember to _watch_ the movie in addition to the words), but it was worthwhile. My roommate (who has ever been fluent in Spanish in her life) was muttering in Spanish throughout the movie. Once or twice I asked what she was saying, but mostly I was amused.
Thanks go to my sweetheart for picking all of the movies. Yes, I'll even thank him for Eegah because it meant we were snuggled up on the couch together. Next time I might have to bring the MST3k movie I have to share with him. There might need to be drinking to watch it though.
My dad is looking for someone who can diagnose (and hopefully fix) someone else's computer issues. May be hardware. May be software. I don't have a lot of details, but if you have someone you like and trust, please let me know.
Well, Arisia '07 has come and gone. All things considered, it was a very good con. Yes, there were a number of issues with the hotel, etc, but that's to be expected when you change hotels, etc. I'm not going to rehash all of the issues we had, because that's being done in a number of places already.
Mostly I wanted to thank everyone who helped out with Registration this year. We had a good crew who had to deal with the registration changes (due to most of the memberships being sold pre-con and not having many at-door registrations to sell). They really did a great job. We couldn't make everyone happy, but that happens.
Now to finish unpacking and get ready for my dentist apppointment. :)
This past weekend Dad and Cathy came up from NJ to visit with us (my brother, sis-in-law, niece and me). We all had a wonderful time and ate way too much tasty food. Photos coming sometime.
This week, I'm in training M-W for work. And then Thursday starts my Arisia schedule*. So I probably won't be reading a lot of LJ or blogs during this week or the coming weekend, so send email if I miss something important. Also, expect me to be pokey about replying to email.
Registration (for Arisia) is in good shape, and while it's in a new hotel and that's stressful, I have high hopes that it will all go well.
See some of you this weekend!
So I'm a daily commuter type now. And I guess I look like I know what I'm doing because this morning I was asked by 2 women to help them with their T passes. (I'd just added money to my Charlie Ticket.)
One was getting a Charlie Ticket, so that was easy. The other had a Charlie Pass which I haven't gotten yet, but I figured it out for her and she happily went along her way. :)
I'm amused. And apparently approachable.
This is going around LJ (you need an LJ ID to play, but it told me some silly things and I wanted to share):
In 2007, jasra resolves to...
Drink four glasses of music every day.
Overcome my secret fear of soulful moments.
Learn to play the hope.
Volunteer to spend time with falsifying statistics.
Give some friends to charity.
Find a better knowledge.
What I think of these resolutions:
