I can’t believe that tomorrow will be my last full day of vacation here in sunny California. Time has flown by. I’ve been much busier than I thought I’d be. I’ve only read 3 and a half books. And 2 of those were on the flight out here.
Finally, I’ve gotten my laptop plugged into the internet!
I’m having a great time.. keeping busy..
I still need to scan a couple photos in, but here are a couple from my digital camera. They’re from Universal City Walk.
I’ll post photos from the con soon!
Hope you all are having a great week too…
And here’s my new favorite comic shop:
From Creation’s Grand Slam SciFi Summit guest list:
He is best known for his role on the original Star Trek as Sulu. And most recently guest starred on the hit show Heroes, as Hiro’s father.
George’s acting career has spanned five decades. It began in the summer of 1957, between his freshman and sophomore years at the University of California at Berkeley, when George answered a newspaper advertisement placed by a company casting voices for a motion picture. The film was Rodan, a Japanese science-fiction classic about a prehistoric creature terrorizing Tokyo. In a sound stage on the MGM lot in Culver City, Calif., George dubbed the original Japanese lines into English, creating distinct voices for eight characters.
I was quite upset to hear that Colin Ferguson, star of SciFi Channel’s Eureka wouldn’t be attending as advertised. But there are so many other great media guests scheduled at Creation’s Grand Slam SciFi Summit that I’ll still enjoy the convention.
The next person I’m most excited to see is James Marsters. Marsters, of course, is most well-known for his role as Spike in the cult show Buffy the Vampire Slayer. And more recently, he played Super-nemesis Brainiac on the CW’s Smallville. He’ll be the only actor here every day of the con.
Shiloh signing books for fans
I met Shiloh from Thursday Thirteen, I believe. She’s a romance author with an eclectic taste in reading. And I’ve had fun chatting with her over on her blog. So, she mentioned that she was doing a book signing here in Indy, I decided to go meet her!
That smile was when I was still 29. ->
Yes, today I turn the “Big Three Oh.”
I can’t believe I’m actually coming to terms with it. I thought I’d spend the day crying.
It does help that I’m taking off to California on vacation in a couple weeks… Planning it around Creation’s Grand Slam SciFi Convention, where Adrian Paul (Highlander), Justin Hartley (Smallville’s Green Arrow), George Takei (Star Trek’s Sulu), and Colin Ferguson (Eureka) are just some of the guests that weekend. And the rest of the days will be filled with reading, lounging in the sun, and family.
Carl has released his new challenge: Once Upon a Time. This challenge is on reading from the fantasy genre. He gives four optional quests, all pertaining to reading of these categories: Mythology, Folklore, Fairytale, and Fantasy. Some books, of course, could fall into more than one of those categories.
