Axe me something.   I like: Doctor Who, Torchwood, Golden Girls, Heavy Weights, Watchmen, Futurama, X-Files, the 1950s, retro future/space age, tattoos, chubby dudes and cool stuff.
I am: an assistant editor and sound editor (professionally) and an editor (freelance). I draw comics and take photos, but not enough. I live with my boyfriend and my cat, who are both furry and cute.

Thanks!
Bry popped the question in September and we have done zero work to plan our wedding since then. Mostly because we don’t really have a lot of cash for a wedding (but who does) and are just kind of avoiding dealing with it. We do have our photographers picked out, but haven’t actually picked a date yet or locked them down totally. We just know when they start being available (middle of October, because everyone else has already planned their wedding for before then, of course). 
About a month ago, one of my bridesmaids visited and brought me a giant The Knot catalog and the next day Bryant’s mom visited and brought us an NH weddings magazine. So that’s some gentle prodding. I’m actually pretty stressed about the whole wedding thing…if we could just get a venue, I would feel so much better. I finally emailed my first venue earlier this week and they don’t do weddings in October because they’re harvesting apples. Maybe we should just get married in November so I don’t have to find another venue I like…
Meanwhile, Bry and I are trying to start a company and make a feature length doc by ourselves. GOOD PLAN.
Sorry for such a long response to such an innocent “congrats”!

Thanks!

Working on someone else’s system. 

These keyboard settings. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

I wrote a thing about my home town. Not the best thing I’ve ever written…

He wasn’t there this year. He’s only been at like a third to a half of the Christmas parties I’ve been to. But he picked the right year to skip— it was super dead and weird. And the Yankee Swap gifts were the worst ever. Four or five people chose to regift shitty gifts they’d gotten in the swap years prior. Bryant came out with a horrifying glass Elvis commemorative ornament (that he left behind) and I got onion chopping goggles. The worst.
It’s not like it’s supposed to be a wacky, screw everyone over Yankee Swap. About half of the people choose to interpret it that way, and the other half feels screwed over when they get a glasses stand or something when they put in a book/movie/kitchen item/something you don’t have to throw away.
Anyway, Bry and I felt compelled to go to keep face at the company, since we haven’t even been gone a year. But it’s probably the last year we’ll go. On the bright side, we might go out to trivia sometime with one of the few people from work that we actually really liked.

Bry and I are en route to our old work place’s Christmas party. So many former coworkers and interns to avoid.

I went to trivia at the pizza place last night with my friends Tim and Mary Kate. Tim and I were standing at the front of the restaurant, waiting for a table, and this group of like three or four college-aged dudes come in. I look at them and there’s something kind of familiar about them, but I don’t know anyone that age anymore, so I go back to minding my own business. The hostess asks them if they’re here for trivia, and one of them replies, “No, we were just wondering if we could shoot a scene back there.” Of course. I could smell the film kid on them.

Tim says, “Oh, I remember those days. Except I usually tried to give the restaurant more than a moment’s notice.”

Conclusion of story: film kids are brats, but we can sniff each other out.

In case you haven’t had enough of my shitty self-indulgence today.

I’ve mentioned this before, but I worked on a doc this summer that didn’t end super well between the guy who commissioned it and the company that I was working for. It looked like the guy who commissioned it was going to bring it to another editor to get the changes he wanted. 

Periodically I’m googling him and the doc title, trying to find out what’s going on with it. It feels like stalking an ex or something.
