I'm going!

Where? To the Music of Battlestar Galactica concert in San Diego! I've been agonizing over whether to go for a while now (since we leave for Austria on Wednesday with the choir and there's a bit of a money-squeeze).

But then I remembered. That "second job" fun? Is going to net me a pretty paycheck in July. So I'm going!

I can't wait to see Bear and company in person, and get my hands on the new shiny season 4 soundtrack!

I know, I know. I'm not dead!

I've been super-busy for the last month or so, what with basically working two jobs (they finally hired my replacement at the job I left in April, so after he's trained I should be off the hook).

Jessica came down on Wednesday (she left yesterday), and we had a great time!

Really, audience? Really? )

Also, I have a new toy:

Found it for $85 (refurbished) through Amazon. Score! Though, I have apparently now tainted the house, so we may have to do an Apple-exorcism at some point.

Also-also, we watched the US premiere of Merlin last night. It was good (Giles as Uther Pendragon!) but weird (Prince Arthur the jerk? Young Merlin with young Arthur?). I know the legend has lots of variation and many different versions, but given that my previous exposure to it has been The Once and Future King, Mary Stewart's Crystal Cave series, and Disney's The Sword in the Stone, it's a little jarring. And yet, I'm willing to cut it some slack because it's a BBC production, and if anyone can take liberties with Arthurian legend, I think the British probably can.

And yes, Mom, that is a Fringe mood theme.

Going to see Star Trek tonight. In IMAX!

I'm going to bury my head in the internet-sand until afterwards, though; the sheer amount of hype is making me nervous. Also, reviews starting with "Well, I never really liked Star Trek, but this movie ROCKED!" don't...really give me a lot of confidence. However, I have read positive Trekkie-reviews also.

So I have to shrug off everything and just experience the movie. I'll post later with my thoughts, but going in my skepticism is still pretty high. Just as a benchmark reference.

Related: I didn't have a "ooh shiny" tag yet? Bizarre.

Totally not related: I'm annoyed by the font in my new theme. I must now either tweak so I get a pleasant sans-serif font, or pick a new theme. Le sigh.
