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.

Watching Rock of Love Bus on my new computer and also kind of working in between. Don’t mind the hole in our ceiling.

Today:

  • emails to possible wedding caterers. Prices that are stupidly high! How we will ever afford this?
  • emails to possible bridal party members. No responses!
  • lunch with my mother. Positive!
  • Bry is on a gig. Boo!
  • Kickstarter gets like no pledges, and then suddenly $75 from a very sweet friend and it makes me want to cry.
  • supportive email from producer that also makes me want to cry.
  • supportive email from actual member of bridal party that also makes me want to cry (I’m getting my period next week. I have an international flight next week. Oh no! With like…a seven hour layover in Germany. Is that good? I have no idea).
  • awesome custom rubber stamp comes in the mail with our logo for the film on it. Neat!
  • first coffee in several days. Jitters!
  • Find out there was a shooting in my home town (my parents don’t live there any more, but I know a lot of people there). Panic and get teary-eyed. No real information still, but it sounds gang/drug related, which is still crappy and terrible, but at least it isn’t random or a school shooting or something?

I think I’m going to go upstairs and drink beer and watch Golden Girls in bed soon.

Saw my tattoo sketch today and it is the coolest. Didn’t take a picture because I…don’t know? Anyway, so excited for tomorrow!

I’m getting a tattoo on Wednesday with Bry, Stefan and Joe. I see the artist’s sketch tomorrow and I am super excited and anxious.

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.
