Back, And In Panic Mode
So, I could barely get any work done this morning because I was freaking out on the off-chance I had forgotten to lock my front door. You ever have one of those days? Now, this wouldn't have been as big a problem if it was at my old place, since it was right around the corner, but since my new pad is over 20 miles away... fretsome.
So, I gave up my lunch hour to head up there, and what do I find? You guessed it: front door locked tighter than a homophobe's anus at a Barbara Streisand concert. An entire hour lost simply because I couldn't get the nagging feeling outta the back of my mind.
Anyway, my weekend down in SoCal was a blast, had a surprisingly good time at the Fangoria convention, even if I didn't get the Zoltan! picture with Hal Sparks... next time. Highlights from the convention include the cast of The Devil's Rejects (Lushy showed me House of 1,000 Corpses the night before, which I really dug); getting to see the first 15 minutes of ABC's Desperation miniseries, which looks pretty cool, especially with Ron Perlman as Collie); and then getting to see four horrendous/hilarious death scenes from the upcoming gorefest 2,001 Maniacs, with the lovely Christa Campbell. Sadly, we couldn't attend Sunday with Bruce Campbell, but oh well, I have a feeling he'll be at other future conventions I'll attend.
Also spent some time crashing Meli's wedding shower and mingling with a bunch of her friends... a more eclectic group of women you will never meet. It's like something out of a sitcom... you know how it's a group that seems to have nothing in common other than they get along perfectly? Usually, a group a women friends are so similar, you wouldn't feel guilty mixing up their names (that is, if they even have different names) because they appear to be clones of eachother. Not this group... quite refreshing actually...
The other highlight of the weekend was Lushy and I finally tackling the In N Out Kreme burger we've been talking about since... hell, probably our last Vegas trip nearly three years ago. We've got photo documentation of the DoubleDouble encased in two glazed donuts, which should be going up on Tomothy's blog soon.

Rant & Rave, Bitches! (3)
Dude, I cannot wait for 2001 Maniacs! The more I think about the scenes they showed (5 in a row with a nudity/gore combo), I think this may be the best movie ever! Those scenes alone blow citizen Kane out of the water :-) As for the burger pics, they should be posted within 2 weeks.
