Saturday I went to the library, picked up the book written by the Human Lie Detector man I’ve talked so much about the last few weeks, as well as Drawing Words and Writing Pictures, a mini-comic creation textbook. Went down to the beach, listened to the Dodgers Spring Training on the radio while reading The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, a fascinating book. Then I met Stephanie for coffee, talked for two hours in the coffee shop and didn’t want it to end. She bought me a feather necklace, it’s like a better version of the wing I used to wear, and it expresses the same sentiment. Came home, watched Rocket Science which I wish went somewhere but none the less was a very entertaining idling car. Unfortunately he has a pronounced stutter and I seem incapable of watching someone play a character like that and not start imitating them. I must have sounded scared out of my gord when I talked to Steph later on that night.
Then today I got up and went to the mall, after Steph uh, made me aware of some of the rules I wasn’t as yet aware of. Made another huge chunk of a payment to UC Berkeley, I’m about a quarter of the way through, bought tickets for Paley Fest ’09 where they’re going to show the three unaired episodes of Pushing Daisies, introduced by Bryan Fuller! There are also two panels with Whedon, one for Dollhouse and one for Dr. Horrible. I want to go to those too, but they’re about three times as expensive as the Pushing Daisies screening. This is the same festival which hosted the Buffy reunion last year. I gotta give LA credit, it has stuff going on that I’m super interested in.
Feels good to have a weekend worth checking in over. More Dodgers Baseball, and then it’s back to building airports, but work is becoming more and more comfortable, so no worries. And…and…it’s been 75 sunny with a nice breeze all weekend, the weather that sells LA. It really is a beautiful place.
