In happier news, I don't think I got to mention it before but I did see Frankenstein for a second time on Monday. This time with Benedict as the Creature. The two performances were both wonderful and I enjoyed both for very different reasons. But I will say that I preferred Benedict's Victor. In general, Benedict brought a lot more vulnerability to both roles. It's a powerful and fantastic play either way. And the music. Absolutely loved the music. And the set. And everything about it, really.

Since I spent about 7 hours in Japantown, I also took some pictures while I was there.

Pictures done this way since LJ won't let me insert an image within the entry atm )

Just got back from WonderCon! Met [ profile] sharkshark and another whose name I can't remember because I suck. But I had so much fun. For the Doctor Who panel, I was the closest I've ever been to the front. The panel featured Toby Haynes (director of 'The Pandorica Opens' 'The Big Bang' 'A Christmas Carol' and the 2-parter series premiere), Neil Gaiman, and Mark Sheppard (the guy who is in everything). It was moderated by Chris Hardwick. When we first entered the room, they gave everyone a Doctor Who Insider magazine and an awesome t-shirt (pictures are under the cut). There's a really good write up of the panel here (copy/pasted from io9) which I am linking to because I also suck at remember awesome details. There will be some spoilers though, so enter at your own risk. Including a hilariously awesome line from Neil Gaiman's episode =D It was great to hear from people who had not only worked on the show, but who are also huge fans of it as well. ♥♥♥♥♥♥

After the panel, [ profile] sharkshark and I met up with the other LJ person. While we were standing around the food area just talking, Toby Haynes walks by. [ profile] sharkshark stops him and asks for his autograph and he said that nobody's ever asked for it before ♥♥♥ I got him to sign my DWI magazine. I also ♥ him even more for doing that because at the panel he had mentioned that he was dyslexic. Ooooh! And not only has he directed some of the best DW episodes, but he's also going to be directing one of the new Sherlock eps as well!!

After that, we walked around a bit, but I had pretty much come just for the panel. There was a booth that had free sci-fi books though, so I picked three of them just for the hell of it. Around 2, I called my mom to get me. While I was waiting to get picked up ([ profile] sharkshark waited with me) a group of people walked past. One of the guys in the group looked my way, did a double take, and then all of a sudden ran towards me. We were wearing the same shirt so he was running up to give me a high five, LOL. I slapped his hand and he ran back to his group of friends. This was the shirt, btw.

So that's pretty much my story! I'm rubbish at con write-ups but if you have any questions I can answer to the best of my abilities ;P

Now I'm off to shower and maybe go to sleep early so I can get up and make my way over to Jtown for Frankenstein tomorrow. Oh, the other LJ person we met had gone yesterday as well, but they complained that we got the wrong showing so they refunded their tickets. Why don't I complain more often dammit! *facepalm*

The few pictures I took )

I'm sure you're all just dying to know which stand mixer I chose.

*drum roll*


BUT Amazon is crazy and their prices fluctuate all the time so it was actually only $255.49 instead of the $285.79 it was just a couple days ago. Which means instead of almost $50 more than the cheapest one, I only paid about $16 more. Now I'm just hoping there isn't some crazy ass sale on it and I miss it by a couple days. Still, it could just as easily go up again and the sooner I get it, the sooner I can start using it. Just in case, I should probably never look at that product again.

Also, Hulu totally won April Fools this year. They've taken it down now, but when you went to their main page, it was 1996 again. Grainy pictures and everything. I took screencaps because I'm a loser, LOL.

The X-Files, Sliders, and NewsRadio )

PS I'm totally addicted to this right now. Both the vid and the song. Hell, I just bought the song from Amazon. That's saying something right there.

From here.

I'm about to go pass out. But before I do, if you haven't met my sister's dog yet, here's Willy. He freaks out when cameras are pointed at him so this is both adorable AND rare ;) That's my arm/hand btw.

I'm in one of those life-is-good moods and while it might not last, I'm going to enjoy it while it's here. Seeing a friend tomorrow after she gets off work and I'm going to return a few things from the mall because I'd rather have that $ for something else. But before that, I have a few things to do. Might even try exercising a bit and cleaning. I feel like cleaning (of course whenever I get the urge to clean, it's like 1 in the morning). Then I bake cupcakes for a different friend I'm seeing on Tuesday. Whenever we hang out, we get DELICIOUS Chinese food so I'm looking forward to that. And it's also the day of the season finale of White Collar!!!! Sorry, I'm just riding some weird high right now. Maybe it's because I had like 5 red velvet cupcakes today. Damn sugar highs.
spacemonkeyluvn: (colin:: WHAT DOES IT MEAN?!)
I'm going to spam you a couple times tonight, I'm not really sorry.


And I don't really do award shows because the second hand embarrassment is just TOO MUCH for me, but spoilers for winners/losers )

An elephant never forgets... to kill. )

Today was uneventful. I hate being lazy, but I feel too tired to do anything. If my mom feels up for it, tomorrow I think I'll dye my hair and go get it cut. I need something different. Maybe that'll help me get out of this funk.

PS *laughs forever*

I only slept about 1-2 hours tops last night. I actually fell asleep for a bit but woke up having an anxiety attack or something and instead of trying to sleep some more, decided to distract myself with TV and movies. Thankfully my friends have Netflix on their XBox, so I stayed up watching Stargate Continuum, a couple episodes from season 7 (Fallen when Jack say's 'Daniel' and his voice breaks, Enemy Mine, Space Race), an episode of News Radio (my childhood!), some Family Guy, and a movie, Humpday which was... interesting. And awkward. But yeah, the little bit of SG1 rewatching I did got me all nostalgic again.

A few words on the most recent White Collar )

And my picture of the day )

They're saying we might get snow tomorrow. For the first time since '79, I think.

Today's been a bit of a hard day. )

In other news, I've been looking at some other places for baking schools/classes because a full tuition for the Art Institute is a little much. I mean, I'm sure they'd be much more thorough and maybe you'd have better chances with that behind you, but $33,000 is a little scary sounding. Especially since, while I love baking, I also loved archaeology and who knows what I'll end up doing and for how long. But I found a baking/pastry certificate at City College and it's non-credit. Which means it's FREE. I'm too late for the spring classes, but the summer schedule should be up on March 15th so I can see if it's available then. It'll be Mon-Fri 6-12pm which means 6am to noon and while that would kind of suck, at least I'd be out of the house and I'd have the rest of the afternoon free to work or whatever. I still need to do some serious thinking and planning, but the baking thing is sounding more and more plausible at least.

Also, I'm currently in love with/addicted to Jessie J. I've already posted one of her vids, 'Who You Are', but here are a few more (including that one again). Her first single is 'Do It Like a Dude' and she wrote 'Party in the USA' and based on that, you might wonder why I'm listening to her, LOL. But she seems like a genuinely nice person. She writes her own music and I love how passionate she is. She's always smiling while she sings. IDK, I just really admire that. Her music is also very inspiring and has really hit a chord with me. She also sounds great live/acoustic and I can't say that about too many artists these days. Anyways, she's my newest girlcrush and I can't wait for her CD to come out (~5 days in the UK and in the US we get it late April).

A few more vids/songs )

Before I forget, my picture for the day )
