Just a little over a month away and I am on my 3rd idea.... Moving away from what would have been an easy 50k to write with a big ensemble cast (post apocalyptic) so I could have spent chapters at a time on different people....too a story which will focus on 1 character and what she is going through. It will not be an easy 50 k for me as though it is a horror story, it will be more about pain and emotions than any sort of action (there will be some intense horror with some action but really don't see much). Should be interesting.

This on top of the fact that I am sitting on 90k novel at the moment which I am trying to edit and finish filling in some missing pieces. I really wanted to have a rough draft done by years end.

Was up at 4 this morning, a couple hours before my alarm due to my coughing/sore throat. So ended up calling in, was probably going to only get one more day this week anyways so I figured it was for the best to take today off. I do feel a bit better now but still coughing like crazy. It will depend on how I feel come morning if I am even going to try it tomorrow or not.

I did this to myself too, Monday when I went for my run I ended up getting soaked from a rain storm which was supposed to be a few hour off. blah

Been with this crew since April and last week was our first slow week...this week has been just as slow... Have the option of picking up some hours for my old boss but to be honest I really don't want to go back there. One of the best things I ever did (work wise) was cut ties with him, but really need the hours. Decisions, decisions.

On top of that since Sunday I am once again fighting off what feels like the onset of a cold. Really scratchy throat and a cough is making this week so far almost unbearable to go out...

Tired of letting crap bother me... So yeah I deleted that last post I am so over it. It is time for me, to think about me. 33...constantly single, disliking my life, etc, so this is just another step in my current transformation of my life. I may basically be forced to stay in Kentucky to take care of my little brother when I have friends scattered all over the east coast and only a couple here.


Ok....post con depression may be adding to my annoyance about this....having such a great time around old and new friends just makes putting up with the stuff I do seem stupid on my part.

Ok, try to make this brief…may not be but a sum up of how my weekend went.

Getting to Atlanta/Dragoncon was hell, 2 attempts in the car neither time did I get very far and it was a bad start to the weekend, ended up driving my truck down and getting there 12 hours later than I hoped.

Most won’t understand it but there is this release, almost the moment I got there having missed the year before it was such a relief to get there and check in. I did very little on Thursday, besides getting my badge… Ran into Robin a couple times as we were in the same hotel, it was very nice to chat with her as always: D We haven’t really hung out at con the past few years. Also got to meet Girlsplosion, Paul, and Pumpkin all three of which I know from twitter :D Been chatting so much back and forth the past few months it was great. Would run into GS & Paul several times over the weekend, and Linda your Bear Trap was indeed awesome. I really did turn in early this night I believe I crashed at like 11 or 12….it was sad.

Friday….was I guess you could say my panel/guest day. Went too 2 panels, True Blood and Being Human and both were fun. Guests this day, Eliza Dushku, Kristen Baur, and Laurie Holden… All were very nice, no complaints. Especially Baur Took some pictures but really I only took like 200 over the whole weekend which is slacking for some people…realized that later on in the weekend I may have been in a lot of pictures….but only a handful were taken with my camera lol

Ran into Pat….did not recognizes him without his Spike hair at first, lmao. And in the evening ended up hanging with the Minions for a few hours at the normal Friday kick off party for the group :D Met a few I haven’t met before and others it was nice just to play catch up. Ended up leaving there sometime after 10 and just roaming around until around 1….crashed again early this night….

Ok…Saturday and Sunday seem to blend together….

I only went too one panel over the 2 days, Walking Dead, it was fun but a little awkward feeling it. And I didn’t get any guest autos on these days…

These days were spent taking a lot of pictures and running into a lot of friends who I haven’t seen in 2 years…some I haven’t even talked too online in that time. Both evenings/nights however I spent with other twitter friends, Nancy, Major, Andi, Jenn…(only knew Nan/Major before con) So much fun was had and it was one of the highlight of con for me; Lots of just hanging out chatting getting to know people, especially on Sunday evening and just people watching. Oh yeah and drinking Pie! Lol Can’t forget that.

Both nights crashed out around 3 or 4…

Monday…met Stan Lee..nough said. Very depressing day, last day of con it always is.. Ended up leaving around 12:30 and almost 9 before I got home.

I’m already planning costumes and stuff for next year :D I really hope some people make it back guess we’ll see. Also hoping some who did not get to make it this year can go :D

Will post pics later when I can come to sift through them…

Saw CA The First Avenger today and to be honest I quite enjoyed it. More so than I was expecting when I went into it which is basically the same thing I can say about all the 'Avengers' to date. Thor, Iron Man, and CA going into their movies I can say I was never a fan of any. In all my time reading comics I have picked up runs of each (and even enjoyed a few) but they never held my attention for too long. Now with each having a movie of their own, I've enjoyed each movie (including IM #2) but still as characters they are low on my list.

Captain America as a movie stands out from the other two though, I don't know if it is being a fan of Evans (ever since Sunshine) going into it and knowing he could pull this off. It is also a movie that very easily could have been terribly goofy but wasn't. I really enjoyed it, compared to others (both Avenger related movies and the other comic movies of this summer) I came out of the theater with no complaints... The story, the acting, the scenery, it all clicked for me and left me wanting more. And I hope it is a success so there will be a CA #2 somewhere down the road!

And seriously, the after credits trailer rocked!

I am really looking forward to the Avengers movie for a couple reasons. 1 - Joss Whedon is directing! 2 - My favorite Avenger is and probably will always be Hawkeye (with Jack of Hearts a very close second)
