- Working six days a week now... my day off will be partially spent sleeping.
- Watching the Futurama movies via Netflix... I think I am going to have to own all Futurama DVDs.
- Ripping my CDs and loading them onto my MP3 player... I realized that a bunch of my favorites weren't even on my computer - that needed to be rectified!
- Waiting for certain movies to come out: "Transformers 2" & "Harry Potter 6" to name a few. Of course certain other movies on DVD such as "Watchmen" and "Star Trek" are definitely on my must buy list.
- Also waiting for the Can't Stop The Serenity/Dr. Horrible screening. Got some people to go... looking forward to it.
- Also also waiting for the new single by "Weird Al" Yankovic which is coming out on 16 June. Three more days! Whatever You Like and the new song, Craigslist, will be on the new album that he's working on.
- Trying very hard to not have caffeine. I gave it up about a month or so ago, and have slipped up a few times, but I am denying myself that particular addictive substance.

I can't remember if I've posted this before, but even if I have it's worth watching again... this is Joss Whedon explaining why he writes strong female characters and the reason behind Equality Now:
Today so far I have cleaned up my room a bit, got laundry ready, and wrote this post. I am planning on doing the laundry and watching the first disc of the first season of Spaced and generally relaxing as I go back to work tomorrow.

Update 2:30 PM - ( Here are the pics taken with the family of three mentioned in the previous post... )
I left the house yesterday wearing my Autobot symbol hat, "Watchmen" t-shirt, and my Spider-Man club shirt over it. Got on BART, got off at Powel street, and walked to the Moscone Center South, whereupon I got myself into line. Soon after that I met up with Al and met a family of three who were just as excited to be there as we were. All of us got interviewed for Wondercon. Eventually we got let in to get our badges and wait in line again to be let into the dealer's room. Al got separated from me, but I talked to the family I had met and they even took a few pictures which they promised to email to me at some point. Once we were let into the dealer's room I went straight to the celebrity area and met Erin Gray, Barry Jenner, and others. I decided to bite the bullet and get in the long line for DC swag. then generally walked around the dealer's hall until Carl got there. We got into the very long line to try to win "Watchmen" tickets, but we ended up not winning them. We left the con to head back to Carl's place and meet up with Rudy to watch the new BSG episode. Got home and pretty much called it a night..
Today I left the house with Zack in tow around 9:30 AM, took BART to the city, and while on the way to get Zack registered met Felicia Day while she was in line to get her badge. We then hurried up to the room where they were having the "Watchmen" panel, I talked to Louise, and when the show started I was simply amazed at the the first ten minutes or so of the movie that they ended up showing us... basically the first 13 pages of the graphic novel, including an awesome montage over the credits. After that we got our "Watchmen" buttons, tried to get in line to see Felicia Day and failed, and ate lunch at Jollibee's. After lunch I met Wendy & Richard Pini, which was an honor since I loved Elfquest so much. Ran into Warlock a few times. Bought myself my annual geeky logo shot glass, Blue Sun this time, from the Stylin' Online booth. Later on I stood in line and got my Dr. Horrible DVD signed by Felicia Day, then Carl took a picture of she and I. Carl, Zack, and I went to the Metreon to wait in line to see 45 minutes of the new Pixar film "Up".. After retrieving our cell phones we all agreed that what they showed us was just kick ass and we couldn't wait to see the whole thing at the end of May. Also, "squirrel!" Taking BART back to San Bruno, we went to Brian and Zack's house to watch Commentary the Musical and the ELE application videos on my Dr. Horrible DVD. Now I am home... looking forward to more Wondercon tomorrow.
( Here are pics from the con... )
- I got to see Brian and Rainah tonight, though I wish it were under better circumstances... she's moving away. That makes me sad. But it's for the best I suppose. At least I got to have dinner at Chili's and watch Dr. Horrible with them and Zack before heading home, which was fun.
- Later today, at 10 AM, I start my first actual day of work at Calafia's market. I am excited! I then work the next few days.
- I now have tickets for all three days of Wondercon and for the midnight showing of "Watchmen" at Tanforan. Woot!
- I talked to my housemate about the internet deal and how I'm only able to be online half the time, so from April onward I will pay him just $10 a month... he said I don't need to pay for March since the $20 I paid this month will cover two months at the new price. I still might just get my own cable internet subscription at some point in the near future.
At least if I had to stay home sick from work today I had something good to watch... and I also have "Choke" from Netflix waiting on top of my t.v. And speaking of t.v., another good ep of BSG last night. "How many dead chicks are out there?" Heh heh.
Got my work schedule from Calafia last night... let's just say my worries about not having enough hours are over. In fact, I may have to ask for less. I am really hoping they will do something about the fact that I'm scheduled next weekend, since I plan on attending Wondercon then.
Update 4:08 PM - "We're not going to Guam, are we?"
Just finished watching six episodes of Lost in a row... now I am all caught up! I even wore my numbers (4 8 15 16 23 42) t-shirt during part of the mini-marathon. This season is so good... I like that it isn't really flashbacks anymore... instead it's mostly taking place in the present (more or less) with time traveling instead. Very interesting twists and stuff. Old questions answered, new ones asked. Loving it!
- I've been sick for the past week... I have a chest cold that isn't serious enough to stay home from work but is bad enough to be very annoying. At least I have today off of work.
- Barack Obama's speech was simply awesome. This guy is going to win, I just know it. If so, the future could be something to look forward to for a change
- Happy birthday mc chris! Go robot, it's your birthday...
- Google is releasing a new web browser today. Firefox, thou days art numbered...
- The Dr. Horrible soundtrack is finally available on iTunes. The official lyrics can be found here. Of course the soundtrack is already on my hard drive and my Zen, but I'll still get the CD when it comes out.
- I have been reading the immensely enjoyable Artemis Fowl series. I am now on book four and I am barely able to stop reading to make time for things like work and sleep.
- I forgot just how fun "Men In Black" is. I also can't believe I forgot/didn't know it was a Marvel Comic (kinda)!
- "Tropic Thunder" was hilarious. Robert Downey Jr. was perfect. I now want to see "Hamlet 2" and "Burn After Reading"
Update 10:57 PM - Speaking of Dr. Horrible, it's back online for free viewing at http://www.hulu.com/watch/28343/dr-
Sunday I worked, then watched Oz with Gwynne.
Yesterday evening Gwynnie and I saw "WALL·E", which was of course fantastic. The short film before it, Presto, was totally hilarious. Can Pixar make a bad movie? I don't think so. Before the movie we ate at Tenka and received poor service, but the food was pretty good at least.
Today I've been doing laundry and watching "The Neverending Story" while not enjoying being too warm. I put up the framed Serenity Now poster that Adam had created for the 2006 S.F. event. It looks nice up there on my wall.
- I emailed my updated resume to the RWC theatre earlier today, as they were advertising on Craigslist. I am really crossing my fingers on this one since it would be awesome to work for a movie theatre again and I really need those extra hours each week.
- George Carlin's dying saddened me more than I realized it would. Shit etc.
- Can't Stop The Serenity was cool... but there were a few things I took issue with. Like the lack of air conditioning in the too warm theatre, the fact that the movie was played from DVD rather than celluloid, and the poor location in regards to parking. None of that kept me from enjoying the heck out of the evening.
- My right shoulder is still hurting.
- I'd really like to watch "Iron Man" and "The Incredible Hulk" back to back. Soon.
Update 25 June 2008 / 11:20 AM - In regards to that last bullet and Amy's subsequent comment, I am posting the following from Theater Hopper: ( here you go... )

I haven't mentioned yet that I met with the Sequoia Station room guy on Wednesday and locked in the room for either a 19 May or 1 June move, depending on my money situation. As much as I appreciate my coworker and her boyfriend letting me stay here in their room, I look forward to a more stable and long term living situation that is also closer to my job and friends.
And finally, if you were one of those who were watching Firefly and was really getting into it when Fox decided to pull the plug, and think you might enjoy a webcomic about people like yourself, you would do well to check out Save Hiatus, drawn by a friend of mine and high ranking Browncoat extraordinaire Adam Levermore-Rich . This is the guy whose design for last year's event Can't Stop The Serenity poster won and was consequently used all over the world. Start here... and enjoy. I know I did.
