Friday night was services. Saturday night was the Yankee Swap. But last night? That was the Guardian of the Flame episode for this season's Dungeonmaster, and there was something rather unusual about this script.
However, Sunday started out with LJ under attack because of the Russian elections. Now that they're over, oddly enough LJ is fine. Who knew?
Finally, we got started around noon, and we bought pet foods, bits and pieces from Costco, and we looked at laptops for me. Yes, I will be mobile, soon.
Home, I finished two pounds of spiced pecans as a snack for the cookie exchange later this week. It took a while, but forestcats helped me time things.
Then, we were off to the show, since I had to be relatively early.
See, this episode they had all the present Guardians of the Flame, and Shadow Guardians involved in pitched battles, and so I actually had some stage time, and a few lines. When my time came, I wandered onto the stage, and suddenly there was all this noise...thank you for the kind applause. I did my thing, and ran off...only to have a sudden return several scenes later for a quick funny line. The party had 100% survival; 33% induction into the ranks of Guardians.
Following the show, it was time to go get some food; we hadn't eaten since lunch, missing dinner. I was amazed at how many of the cast, crew and audience all showed up at Dennys for a post show eat and greet; since the venue damn near sold out again, it was quite the party. Congrats to those who succeeded, and good luck next season to those who didn't.
Oh, and the opening show's puppetry was a gas.
But now, to reality, and back to work.
Heal, raise, heal, raise, heal, raise...
My Favorite Movie Today – The Hunt for Red October
I love the Hunt for Red October. I am a published writer and screenwriter, and I watch movies from all decades, even old silent movies, to analyze movies. Red October has like zero flaws, while most films have many many flaws. Inception I found three flaws. Flaws for me, may not be a flaw for you, because I am tremendously critical of movies. A flaw for me can be in framing, the camera not looking at the scene from the right angle, or a character not moving or making a gesture in a certain way to make the scene more dramatic. In Red October every scene, from scene to scene, is very exciting and add to the plot. The actors fit their characters and were so diverse, acting extremely great. There are so many different elements of the film, five battle ships, with diverse purposes; then there were scenes in Washington D.C. and one in Moscow . I love the National Security conference in Washington when Alec Baldwin had to reluctantly brief all those big wig. And I very much like the scene in the Red October ship when the conspirator officials were eating and Sean Connery tells them he’s informed Moscow they were defecting. So, it was just a great, great, great movies. www.elainenorth.com

Re: My Favorite Movie Today – The Hunt for Red October
Interesting, but I'm curious. What did that have to do with my post? Just a point that intrigues me.
I missed the Yankee Swap.. oh well.
Can't always go to everything.
