First off, we finished watching the second season of Veronica Mars; still quite good. Netflix should have had the first disc of season three in our hands yesterday, but the USPS didn't deliver it. I expect to see it Monday.
We also were streaming a documentary series called Prophets of Science Fiction; it dealt with eight different authors of importance in the field. The show was solidly good; off the top of my head I recall that there were shows devoted to Mary Shelley, Jules Verne, P. K. Dick, Asimov, Clarke, Heinlein, one more that escapes my recollection, and finally George Lucas. Overall, it was a good piece of work. Find it on Netflix, I guess.
Friday night was my Dad's yahrzeit (anniversary of his death). I lit a candle before we went to our friends' place for services, and I said a prayer for him; when they heard that it was the specific (Jewish) date of his death, one of our friends chanted another prayer as well, which I appreciated. It was good to be with folks at the time, because it was our youngest member's birthday celebration, and the contrast was comforting.
I got up ridiculously early on Saturday, because we were having a BBQ for the cast of Dungeonmaster to celebrate the attendance of Bruce A. Young, the man who created the original show. I got home from the hospitals about half an hour after folks started showing up, and I immediately went out to the grill (in temperatures over 100 degrees outdoors!). We had about a dozen or so guests, chatting and having a good time; people hung out with us until sunset. Very pleasant.
And so, later today is the Classic Dungeonmaster episode, where we are resurrecting an old script from a dozen or so years ago, and replaying it for an audience that hopefully will include special guests of former cast members brought back for honor. It's going to be a great show! But now, I have to get myself out of the house to get my work done, first...
