My goodness. No posts since Feb. That's sad. I guess it's because we skipped Comiccon this year. I know, shocking. But we really needed a year off. That said, when it finally arrived we were definitely both like, "WAH, why are we not going?!?!" Probably for the best, though... will make it fresh again when we go next year. We're also going to be out of town for APE, so I will completely miss all opportunities of finding cool new zines, toys, etc. I'm sure it'll all still be there next year.

It's been an extremely busy summer at my work. Our team finished up work on the multiplayer portion of Sims 3 for the Wii which went very well and it already getting some good preview press. Then we all got shifted on to helping finish up Rapunzel for Wii and DS. That's been less smooth, but the DS is almost out the door and the Wii should be soon... I hope. Not everyone may know this, but I moved out of being the Office Manager to being a Production Assistant around February, which is awesome... and exactly what I wanted when I first was hired at Planet Moon. We have a next project, which is also very good news, but it's SUPER TOP SECRET. But I am very excited about it.

Um, what else? My favorite show is done for the season (yes, I'll admit it, I like So You Think You Can Dance) so that's sad... have to wait another year for more dance geekery.

Speaking of geekery, been playing much video games lately. Finished Assassin's Creed 1 (I know, I know, that's been out forever) and now I'm on to Bioshock 2. Loving it so far... not as good as the first one but whatever.

New York and Boston trip planned for October... I am ready ready ready for a break.

Yeah, so that's that.

I am obeying g_na and posting in LJ. I, too, have noticed that hardly anyone posts in here anymore. Which is too bad, because I do enjoy reading people's entries. I am v. guilty of not posting regularly, however, so I can't complain too much.

So, because I wanted to get rid of the bike tire around my middle, and because I felt "in a rut" with my none-too-frequent, fairly non-energetic workouts... and because this trainer woman at my gym came over and helped me at the right moment, I decided to buy a package of training sessions. Which was v. expensive! What recession!?!? Anywho, I am appx four sessions in and OWWWW! Every couple days a different part of my body decides to be injured. The past few days it's my ankle.

Other side effects of seeing a trainer: I've been compelled to spend more money on equipment such as a heart rate monitor and this weekend I'll be buying new sneakers as I suspect part of the problem with the ankle is that my old sneaks are lame. They were cheap.

I really like my trainer even though she insists on torturing me. She's funny and sarcastic and laughs at my jokes. She's also helping me with nutrition and diet stuff, and has decreed that I can't drink wine every night (she is evil) at least not right now while I am trying to lose body fat. The sad part is: I know all this stuff and I know if I want to look and feel better, I have to make some lifestyle changes. Always hard to make changes, but I suppose it's necessary.

Hopefully this will get easier and I will get stronger. I imagine both will happen... eventually. In the meantime... OWWWWWW.

In other news, the bathroom remodel is so close to done and I promise to post before and after pics on my flickr page.

Attended Lena's wedding @ Voodoo Donuts in Portland a couple weekends ago. Pix are up from that. It was wonderful... congrats to Lena and Paul. What a great weekend!!!

Saw Santigold (formerly Santogold) last night at the Warfield. Definitely one of the better shows I've seen in a while. Her opening act, Amanda Blank, was surprisingly good. Santi had great energy, sounded good, and had some kickass backup singers who had choreographed dance moves for each song. I love it when there are dancers! Reminds me of MBM shows of old... ah... memories!

And next week, Prodigy! Woo to the HOOOO!

Friends, don't buy a house.

It only leads to stress and heartache. We have a flat roof-area at the front of the house, which was completely re-roofed a little over two years ago, that is leaking again. SO AWESOME! :(

Can I get a WAH-WUH?

The adventures continue in Santa Fe. We went to dinner last night at a VERY popular place called The Shed and the wait for two was 1hr45min (!!!). We decided to wait, had a drink, and made the acquaintance of a very nice gay couple, Brian and Bob. When their name was called, they invited us to join them (they had a four top) and at the end of the meal they paid! And we didn't even have to put out! :) They were really sweet guys (and extremely generous, obviously) and it was a great evening.

And today, we saw Famke Janssen in a shoe store. And ran into our wedding coordinator dude at the place we went for lunch. Good times! Sort of makes up for the fact that we NEVER see Julia Roberts up in Taos (she used to stop in at my step-mom's yarn store on occasion).

Tonight: tapas to be followed by fancy, overpriced drinks at the hotel where we got hitched.
