Detail of 'Yuuwaku' by Audrey Kawasaki
Wow. I haven't posted here in...almost a week and a half. I don't know. I've just been actually living real life. Having a boyfriend is nice. Having a boyfriend who wants to do what I want to do, rather than pouting until we only do things he's interested in, is even nicer. So far in the past week, I've spent three nights over there and a couple more evenings going places with him. And in between, I'm desperately trying (and failing) to keep up with the yard and clean the house. And you know how it is...when you're busy enjoying things, you don't want to take time away from them to blog about them.

I did make it over to the Star Wars exhibit Thursday, with K and Q and J. It was quite fun and if I can find my camera cable, I'll download the pics (yes - they did allow people to take pictures of Luke's speeder and the Millenium Falcon and Lord Vader's original suit from Episode IV). I'm not sure where else the exhibit is going, but if you have a chance to see it and at least mildly enjoy the movies, it's well worth the money. K and I didn't make it to the accompanying OmniMax movie about the movies, but Q said that was good too.

And finally...I have no idea what this film is about, BUT I HAVE TO SEE IT.

Hello! Glad to hear life is good.

And I have been freaking out over Burn After Reading for a couple weeks now. I CANNOT WAIT until it comes out! Is it September yet?

I feel kind of guilty because I tend to bitch online when I'm stressed, but then when things get good, I'm nowhere to be seen. Plus...I'm kind of feeling like ladywilde80. It's not that recent petty crap has dragged me down, I'm just not feeling fandom at the moment. I don't know if my obsession with Heroes is over, or if real life is just demanding too much of my time, or what, but I almost don't want to get online lately.

I hadn't heard anything about Burn After Reading, but after seeing that trailer, I totally love it. I'm not a Coen Brothers fan in the sense that I follow news about them, but I love their "WTF?!?!" movies.

I know! I love the Coen Brothers' "WTF?!?!" kinds of movies. Like The Big Lebowski...

Hee, I was wondering if real life had devoured you. Good to hear things are going so well. :)

It's weird for me when real life actually becomes more interesting than virtual reality. I haven't even played video games in about 6 weeks...

I had not even heard about that movie - the talk up here has been about the next one they're filming and how they were looking at filming in Wisconsin rather than their native Minnesota because it was cheaper. But then I saw this trailer, and man. Whoever put it together is a master of editing, because it sucked me in. And just as I finally reach the limit and yell out loud WHAT IS THIS MOVIE ABOUT???, Frances McDormand says, "What is it?" Even Brad Pitt looks fun in it.

Good for you! It's summer. You should definitely be outside and having fun in the sunshine rather than at a stuffy computer. There's too much to do. And a boyfriend who likes to do the same things. What a joy!

I think the show has been off for way too long and the last half-season wasn't so good... so the interest wanes, and may pick up at a more appropriate time. I know I have been starting to do a lot more outside stuff. And am kind of out of stories right now, and don't feel like giving the enormous amount of mental energy that it takes to think up new ones. I'd rather plan picnics... it'll happen.

Cheers! This is great news. :)

I can't believe it, myself. He's just too perfect: he's a computer person, he games, he likes science fiction... I keep waiting to wake up and find out that he's decided I'm too much of an idiot, or that he's got a secret family in West Virginia or something, because it's just too nice.

Woot! Glad RL is good and you're having fun with the guy! :D

Thanks! It's just very odd for me to find a guy I really, really like spending time with. I keep waiting to find out There's Something Very Wrong With Him, because it's almost too perfect.
