Wow. I can’t believe its Sunday already. I’ve got all the windows thrown open and I’m enjoying the hint of fall in the air. Please lord, let this weather keep consistent this week. It will be a welcome change to have a Labor Day weekend where we are all not dripping in sweat :::knocks on wood:::. I had a lovely relaxing weekend. Yesterday I went over to Smyrna Market Village for a friend’s going away weekend festivities (yes, like me he always turns anything into a multi-day event, I completely respect this!) and got to see a bit of the College Football Fan Fest. We sat and watched the Saints vs. Raiders pre season NFL game for a bit and then I left him in capable hands. He’s moving to Denver next week so good luck and keep in touch dude! After that I ran a bunch of errands and then stopped by Muss & Turner’s to have dinner. I knew I had points on my card so dinner was free (YEY!) and my favorite bartender was there – we’ll call her the Beer Pixie :::dubbed::: Beer Pixie and friends entertained me the entire time we were having dinner and then she found out we were headed to Dragon*Con this week and I was a "D*C Virgin". She’s going to be in a bunch of the costume contests, including the Dawn look-alike contest and one where she’ll dress like Betty Paige. After regaling me with details of what to go to and what to avoid (gaming rooms!) we agreed to keep each other informed of events and parties during the event. Yey! Another friendly face to keep an eye out for. I seriously cannot believe Dragon*Con is THIS WEEK! Baltimore Babe, Dallas Darling :::dubbed::: and Earth Girl :::dubbed::: are all arriving on Thursday. I spent today cleaning and making lists of groceries that I need to pick up. Thankfully we’ll be spending the majority of our time down at D*C so I’m really just focused on snacky stuff and breakfast items we can grab and run out the door with. The one request was good coffee, which I’ll happily supply.
Not only is this week Dragon*Con but college football is also getting started back up! Hells yes! Do y’all know what else is happening this weekend at the SAME TIME in almost the SAME LOCATION as Dragon*Con? The Alabama vs. Virginia Tech game down at the Georgia Dome on Saturday afternoon. ESPN College Game Day will be there at Centennial Olympic Park. The convergence of Alabama Rednecks, football fanatics, and people dressed up for Dragon*Con in the same place is possibly one of the best people watching opportunities I’ve ever heard of. Stay tuned for live Tweets and Twit Pics of the event on my twitter page. I’m sure I’ll be in hog heaven.
Ok, gotta run. Still more cleaning to do and I have to get some work done before "True Blood" comes on tonight. Its the 2nd to last episode of the season and of course they are taking a two week break between this show and the finale so the fans will be frothing at the mouth for the final episode and you KNOW its gonna be a cliff hanger. I just can’t wait to see Evan Rachel Wood as Queen Sophie Ann and her lover, Hadley Hale (who is Sookie’s cousin, y’all!). Drama!! I wonder if they’ll show Andre? Sophie Ann wasn’t half as scary without Andre around. The two of them were referred to as "the worlds deadliest teenagers" in the books. I look forward to seeing how they will be represented on screen!
p.s. Chexican and Captain Triathlon were in the Pacific Northwest rain forest and got to go to Forks, y’all! I am still waiting for the full report. Were Sparklepire’s spotted? Was there any :::fursplosion:::? Inquiring minds want to know if any hot Quileute wolf mens were around.
p.s.s. Apparently Shug has now got a burst blood vessel in one of his eyes? If there was ANY doubt that this is not MY dog, this seals the deal. I was an accident looking for a place to happen at his equivalent in dog years : human years. So essentially, his accident prone nature runs in the family. Thankfully he’s got to get his monthly heartworm pill due tomorrow so we have to go to the Vet anyway and get him weighed. We’ll have them check out his peepers while we’re there.
p.s.s.s. Watching "Sex and the City: The Movie" and just constantly being reminded how charming and funny this movie is. Every scene with Charlotte in it is just perfect. When she yells at Big (every time), when she gets diarrhea, "Coloring", such a great movie!
