Is anyone still around here? I think I might start posting here more again. Tumblr is awesome and all that, but I miss having, like, conversations with people. :-)
So, hi. Hey, there. How ya been?
Things are pretty good here. Martouf started preschool! Ack! Yeah, he's getting big. He'll be four in February. I can hardly believe it myself some days. Still working same place, same job. We're getting ready to release this new utility that was mostly my idea for tracking invoices for this one client that is our biggest client but they have no reporting in their invoicing system. So, it's a mess trying to keep track of the thousands of invoices we generate each week for them. Anywho, yeah. It's a process cos all our offices are still on XP and Office 2007 and they need to be on Windows 7 and 2010 in order for this utility to function at its highest capacity. It will still work on XP and stuff, but not all the functionality will be... functioning. Heh.
Fandom-wise: I've dropped Glee. I just can't take the stupidity anymore. Kurt and Blaine getting engaged actually pissed me off instead of making me the happiest fangirl ever. And after seeing spoilers for the last few episodes and the next couple coming up, I'm really glad I've stopped watching. I'll probably still listen to some of the music, cos DARREN! But, yeah.
Some new shows: SLEEPY HOLLOW. OMG, it's so good. If you aren't watching it, get ON IT. It's amazing. And Orlando Jones is like a gift from the fandom gods. He gets it
. He is a real and good presence on Twitter and Tumblr (and OMG he replied to a post I made on Tumblr a couple weeks ago! asldkjgh). I was a little hesitant at first because, really? Another apocalypse show? But it's so much more than that. I think one of the things I am enjoying best about it is what John Rogers (of Leverage-fame) refers to as Competence Porn. The good guys are good at their jobs and don't make stupid little mistakes or mess up just to give the bad guy a leg up. Take last week's episode
when Captain Irving was in the lab getting the Horseman's Head. It would have been so easy for him to run out of bullets or not make the shot or trip and send the head flying across the floor. On any other show, that probably would have happened. Not on Sleepy Hollow. If the bad guy wants to win, he's going to have to fight for it.
And ALMOST HUMAN. Karl Urban and Michael Ealy. KARL URBAN AND MICHAEL EALY. I think they might give Jared and Jensen a run for their money on most attractive duo on TV. Plus, the story is really good. Dorian is really believable as a very human android. Karl is great as the angsty, brooding cop. I like them. I like it.
Still into Teen Wolf and cannot wait for 3B. The preview that they put up today? ZOMG. STILES BB! :-P
Still doing cons. Yay. The SPN con last month was AWESOME. I made a video for Anna
and it won (YAY!) and I got a hug from Julie McNiven for it, which totally made my weekend. Went to Wizard World Chicago and decided to cosplay for the first time as Ten. Got the awesomest photo op
with John Barrowman. OMG HE'S AMAZING and we all practically had a meltdown after meeting him. GUH. Got Wil Wheaton's autograph, too, and he told me I was one of his favorite femme!Doctor cosplays he had seen. askjdghseahg That was a good day. Hehe.
New music: Michelle Chamuel. She was the runner up on season 4 of The Voice and OMG she's amazing. She has her first single coming out tomorrow and EW has it up for streaming now and I CANNOT STOP LISTENING TO IT. It's soooooooo good.
Anywho. I think this has gotten long enough by now. So, um, say hi if you're still around? :-)
