Bought my Star Wars tickets today!

...for a Sunday matinee.

But I'm still excited!  I'm just too old for this shit midnight showings anymore, and I prefer going to the movies early in the day, anyway.  I don't mind waiting two days.  (Considering most of the time anymore I wait till a movie's been out a couple weeks to go.)  Star Wars at the Drafthouse!  I am so excite!

I watched the trailer twice yesterday and that's probably it for me.  Can't get spoiled, can't get used to the shiny, gotta stay hype.

(I don't have any Star Wars icons.  I'll need to rectify this.  And I've been meaning to make new icons for awhile anyway...)

I'm still sort of amazed that The X-Files is actually, seriously coming back.  Like, I want to travel back in time and tell teenage me that XF will still be on the air twenty years later.  After being pretty worried about it during filming, hearing the positive reception the first episode got at NYCC is making me much more excited - though I'm still nowhere near the epic heights of my fandom back in the day.

And, of course, it's the fourth anniversary of the Parks and Rec episode where Tom and Donna remind us that it's the best day of the year...treat yourself!  I'm going to pick up something for lunch instead of eating the dumb Lean Cuisine I brought.  Treat yourself two thousand fifteen!

Haven't watched Season One yet?  No worries!  If you start now, restrain yourself to a handful of bathroom breaks, and take a modest lunch, you should have plenty of time to get caught up before the premiere.

We are having a premiere party tonight.  Fancy ravioli (stuffed with people!) and brie en croûte (the cheese is made from people!) and port (aged in a barrel with some people!) and ice cream cake (no people).

I honestly don't think I've been this excited about a TV show that is currently airing since Battlestar Galactica.  Which is to say I am VERY EXCITED.

I hear other people also won Oscars last night?  I don't really remember that part...

My favorite Sigur Rós video:

I didn't manage to start rereading The Hobbit early enough to have it done by today, but I am going to try to at least get to the game of riddles with Gollum.  Once I get off work, I have more work to do, and then?  Time to watch the horrifying old animated Hobbit!  I'm pretty excited; I've only seen it once. 

And then The Hobbit!  Tonight!  At midnight!  At the Drafthouse!  EeeeeEEEEEEE!

Ahh, the new Kim Stanley Robinson book made it to the library!  It's very exciting when your favorite author releases a new book when he only puts one out every three years or so.  Of course, it came in on my late day, and I'm stuck at work till 9pm.  But then I am going home, getting directly into my jim-jams, plopping into bed with cats, and reading till I can't keep my eyes open anymore.

I will report back with what is likely to be a glowing review in like four days or so.  I AM SO EXCITED EEE.  This on top of Curiosity this week, I'm just all of a sudden flung back to 1999, when I was fucking obsessed with KSR and space and Mars and NASA and everything.  Sigh.

I survived today!  Today is over!  And I am alive!

So, let me catch you up.  I haven't posted about this particular RL thing much because I didn't want to jinx myself and also because it wasn't that interesting, I think?  But anyway - today my sister and I closed on our new house!  We are now first-time home owners, and it is very exciting.  Now, we won't be moving in for a bit yet - we need to paint, pull up carpets, buy, like, new beds and stuff - but still.  The awful icky part is over.  We also got all of our stuff out of our storage unit and just piled it in the basement to be taken care of later.  I didn't want to pay for another month of storage, and I also just plain hate having my stuff in storage in general.  I always worry about it. 


Seriously, my stress and anxiety level the last, hmm, three months or so as we've been going through this home-buying journey have just been absurd.  The other day I couldn't find my lunch in the freezer here at home and I had to go lay down in my bedroom and have an ugly-cry.

Now the fun part starts.  Of course, I really need to start finding time to work on screenplays.  I'm not going to have anything new to submit to competitions and festivals this year besides the TV pilot if I don't get my ass into gear.

Every weekend I vow to get work done, and every weekend I manage to waste time until I feel horrible, but not this weekend!  I actually got things done!  I outlined the first act of a new screenplay, sat down with my novel and decided to cut out the second major plotline I'd introduced because the whole thing was getting way too unwieldy and bloated, and wrote 3000 words on the next chapter.  I want to try and draft the first five pages of the new screenplay before I call it a day, and I think it's totally doable.

I've decided to quit outlining the whole movie in advance.  I always do, and by the time I've written to the end of Act One, I've veered so far off course that my outline generally becomes useless.  So I'm going to outline two sequences, then draft.  Outline two sequences, then draft.  And so on.  (A sequence is 10-15 pages, and there are eight in a screenplay.)  Shorter goals work better for me, anyway.  I'd like to try to bust this screenplay out, do a NaScreeWriMo again this year, except actually finish in November, and not in January like I did last year.

I also started making Christmas presents today!  I still haven't worked up to being able to cross-stitch again, but I hope to soon.  Right now I'm ~painting.  I've missed doing crafts a lot.

Is anyone watching American Horror Story?  I watched the pilot yesterday, and I'm not sure how I feel about it.  I'm in the rare position of needing the internet to tell me what to think.
