All Whedon'd up.

The Firefly screening last night was a rousing success. The video and sound quality were very good, the theater was more crowded than I've ever seen it (Mr. Russell said that theater employees tallied attendance at 312, which packed the place) and the audience had a great time. Bad guys were booed, action scenes elicited cheers, favorite lines of dialogue were yelled out, and the vibe was just one big, happy Whedonfest. It was great.

I saw chris_walsh there, and met Russell's boyhood pal Ryan, a delightful fellow who seemed tickled that I remembered his tiny part in Resident Evil. And Eric Snider made too many hilarious snarky asides to mention, even if I could remember them all (and I've never seen him laugh so much as he did when Mal shot that horse). Other LJ people (I'm looking at you, darkpoole and greyaenigma) were there/supposed to be there, bit we've never met in person so they could have been sitting right by me and I'd have never known.

The beer (Black Rabbit Porter) was good, too. And my hummus plate was insanely delicious, even if I did have to wait, like, 40 minutes for it. Not so good -- staying out until midnight when I had to get up early this morning to drive Patrick to work and then head to the radio station. Especially when it was too stuffy and hot to sleep once I hit the sack. But it was worth it.

Agh! I listened only to (no lie) the last minute of your radio show this morning. I blanked on it this morning. I blame brain absence.

You know, as my one and only fan, you have responsibilities. Tsk.

I beg your forgiveness.

I wish I was dead.

I hang my head.

I hang my head.

(Both Sting and the late Johnny Cash are hanging their heads at me butchering that...)

Oya geVOYa I'm punchy this morning.

Sorry, I was off celebrating my birthday.

Was it good? Was there cake and presents? Did you get a pony?

WE had beer and Nathan Fillion and guns and spaceships and Gina Torres. It would have been a marvelous way to celebrate your birthday. There were no ponies, though. But lots of horses!

Happy Birthday late. :-)

Well, there was cake on Saturday, Transformers on Sunday, and beach with gummi frogs on Tuesday. So it was good.

No Nathan Fillion, Gina Torres, or Jewel Staite, though. I did manage to see some horses and llamas.

Speaking of gifty stuff, did you actually send out stuff for name selecting? I don't think I got anything. Not a big deal, but I hate to think it might have been intercepted by terrorists.

And thanks!
