Yes, I've been very negligent here, but I'm still around.
Yesterday was my birthday, and I had a very pleasant, quiet time. I went to see Mom at the nursing home for a bit, then swung over to the house to watch Ra.One with Shahrukh with my brother. I thought he'd like it, superheroes and all, but the only way to make him watch it was as a birthday obligation, and it work. Because of course he did like it.
Husband brought Swiss Chalet (chicken, for my non-Canadian friends) and black forrest cake. He gave me Life of Pi and The Hobbit on DVD and I look forward to re-watching them. Speaking of DVDs, I'm on a bit of a SRK binge - watched Rab Na Bana Di Jodi today. Love that one - he's not just a superstar, he's an excellent actor.
Going to be in LA in two weeks with my friend Chris and I'm very excited. I've never been before, but I've always wanted to go. The month after I'm heading to the Ottawa Comicon, where I'll have the grandkidlies for a day. That should be great fun. I'm sure they'll love all the costumes.
I've contributed to the Veronica Mars Kickstarter, and also Big Gay Love with Nick Brendon, both of which have met their goals. Fun to be a film backer. :)
I should be in bed. I could get called into work tomorrow, but really, it's so dried up I may have to look for something else. Pity. :( Don't know what to do, really, and the job market seems pretty bleak. I guess I could write the great Canadian novel, but I haven't been writing much at all (except an article for this month's Bollywood magazine.) Snagged an interview with the director, so that worked out well.
Bed, right. I should get on that posthaste.
