Not the most recent picture, no, but I always liked that one.

One of my very best friends for the last dozen years or so. It's sudden and a shock and... I just haven't wrapped my brain around it yet. I'm not sure I ever really will.

Now I feel kinda bad for all the times I said he was driving me nuts. Even though he often was. ;)

In the immortal words of Susan Ivanova: "At least I could have just boffed him once!" (Trust me, he'd get the reference. ...And I can totally hear him responding with, "Hell yeah, you could have!" LOL)

I'd say "rest in peace," Dano, but I suspect too much peace would bore the shit out of you pretty quickly. Just save me a seat; I'll be along sooner or later. While you're waiting, drink one (or several...) for me.

Two more photos under here, just because. )

Live loud, y'all.

First, even though I did get to tell you in person yesterday, I want to again say:

Happy (now belated, but I saw that you were carrying your celebrations over into a second day) birthday, [personal profile] drinkingcocoa!

And then:

Happy birthday (this one only belated in my time zone), [personal profile] shyfoxling!

You are both awesome and giving and brilliant and just generally all-around made of win! I'm so glad I've had the opportunity to meet and talk with both of you over the past few months. :)

Other event... I got to experience my first earthquake today! LOL (Yeah, the West Coast people on my f-list may now commence with the rolling of their eyes. ;) ) It was definitely quite clearly felt here; given that I'm on the seventh floor of my building, there was some good sway happening. Pretty neat, actually! And like at least two other people on my f-list, I initially thought my dog scratching or licking herself was the reason for the bed moving. I have a suspicion that this might be a fairly common occurrence. XD

...I do assume my friends near the epicenter of the quake are all well? Most of you have checked in already, but I like to make sure...

Also, the various posts I've seen on my f-list about the earthquake today make me want to play a game... How many songs can you think of that have the word "shake" in the title or in a major, recognizable lyric??

The trip from Philly to [personal profile] twilightsorcery's place in NY was easy and uneventful -- but cold! We would have a huge temperature drop just for the one day that I have to go out in the city in reasonably nice clothes at night. My nose has been running nearly non-stop for thirteen hours and it still hasn't stopped. Ugh.

The other downer of the day was that [personal profile] ragdoll wasn't able to go out with us after all. Boo. (You were missed, [personal profile] ragdoll, and I think you should probably avoid reading the squee down below so you don't kick yourself for not coming. You will still be at dinner tomorrow night, right??)

[personal profile] twilightsorcery called a friend who took the extra ticket at the last minute, so I suppose I at least got an impromptu "date" for the evening. Ha. As if I was paying attention to much of anything once the show started!

Okay, so. The mature, intelligent adult in me desperately wants to tell you about the nifty set design, and the concept for the production itself, and what a phenomenal and diverse actor Geoffrey Rush is. But. BUT. The fangirl in me is clearly the louder, more enthusiastic part, because I still haven't made it beyond the point of flailing wildly and shouting, "Geoffrey Rush! Geoffrey Ruuuuuuuuuuuuuush!!!"

GEOFFREY RUSH! 85% NAKED AND FIVE FEET FROM ME!!! Also, might I just say, that man has the most GLORIOUS schnoz. Seriously, photos do NOT do it justice. And his HANDS... ! Everything fanon says about Snape's hands. TIMES TEN. ::dies dies dies dies::

..I am so ashamed of myself. ::facepalm::

Then, just to top off the evening, I got out of the show and learned that I'd won the H/D LDWS! Wow! I have more to say about that, but it'll have to happen later. For now, it's time to pass out and dream of men with large noses.
