Well, I am definitely going to Nashville next week. I'll be gone Tuesday through Friday. When a trip just comes up like that, out of nowhere, and you'd planned on spending the week reading, working on music, and watching Buffy - suddenly there are a lot more things that need to be done in preparation. I've been making lists and running errands pretty much constantly since I found out I was going, and today is no exception.
Luckily while I am in Tennessee I am going to be staying with my cousin rather than some crappy hotel; the cousin who just got married. I'm looking forward to some quality time with him, as well as some quality time with his friend Kathy's brand new outdoor swimming pool, which has already been offered to me for my use.
I still can't tell you why I am going, unfortunately, but I will say this - I know a few of you may have already guessed it, and also, like, can you guys cross your fingers for me? Okay, that's ALL I AM SAYING.
Haha. Justin just walked in my room (it's only 9 AM) with a box of Krispy Kreme donuts in hand and said, "Sorry, I ate all the jellies." We have been watching way, way too much Buffy.
Speaking of Buffy, I just watched the episode "Enemies", and I think it's definitely now one of my favorite ones. Again, I don't want to spoil anyone, but let's just say I was highly impressed by Angel's acting skills. Also, I totally called it. I also loved the episode "The Zeppo", the one that details Xander's crazy night that he never tells anyone about. The plot element used, where everyone else keeps mentioning it was "the worst monster yet" and we don't actually know what they're facing, but get to experience Xander's entire parallel crazy night - I thought it was brilliant. And comical, in the best way.
I know a lot of people warned me that Buffy starts off really cheesy and gets better later on, and I think I am definitely getting to the good episodes, because I have been blown away by Season 3. But then again, I liked all the episodes, right from the start.
I also loved the throwaway line that Oz said in his second or third appearance, about his hair: "It changes sometimes." I've been cracking up every time we see him and it's dyed bright blond, black, brown; no explanation or even mention of why. What a silly show.
I spent this morning going through my old writing from college. I took a fiction writing class and have a folder full of little stories, so I was weeding through to see if there was anything worth keeping. I was expecting to just toss them all, but surprisingly I found a good handful that I moved into a new folder called "Work on Later". Nothing to show yet, but maybe if I do a little work on some of them, I'll post them here like I did with the Mirror Girl story.
As for today, I have a meeting in a few hours, have to go to Kinko's to make some copies, and might work on another one of my tour vlog videos. I have a lot of footage left to sort through, and haven't looked at any of it in over a week.
Oh, and to "katie", who asked me if I was on the 70 bus around 1 yesterday: I actually wasn't, sorry! It's not one of the lines that goes to my house, though it's close! I used to have a bus pass since I was a student at UW. Since I graduated it's expired, though, so you wont find me riding the buses very often anymore.
Okay, can I rant for a second? I love when people tag facebook pictures from shows, or events, or gatherings, or parties, you know, all the fun places we go and photos are taken. And I'll admit, it's a little annoying when I come home and find 200 tagged pictures all of the same show: many dark, the flash focused on a random crowd member's head rather than the stage, each one relatively similar to the last. It's fine though. I keep the good ones, I untag myself from the bad. No big deal.
What I hate, though, is when people see that I've untagged myself, and take it upon themselves to re-tag me in the same fuzzy, pixelated picture I already removed once.
I already have over 3,000 tagged pictures due to all of the conferences, shows, etc. that I've been to in the last few years, with no hope of ever finding anything older than a month or two, but to have to remove pictures more than once? Rant rant rant.
I do realize that some human beings on this planet don't have food or water and here I am complaining about facebook pictures, but I really wish more of the human race could look at a picture and tell if it should be posted or not.
In happier, more upbeat news, check this out: the Parselmouths were mentioned in an article on Sparknotes! If that's not success, I don't know what is. xD
