Slinkified Absence
Monday, August 20, 2007

It's nice to be missed...

A lot of you shiny folk have commented on my absence of late: deepest and most sincere apologies here. I trust the Slinky Series helped ease the pain of my not-being-here-to-post-ness. Sadly, it will probably be a while before i can return to post again. I'm in the midst of a move and the internet situation is just flat-out crazy-go-nuts, man, so it'll be some time before i can work out that part of my new digs. *sigh*

Anyway, the other reason i haven't been around much is i got out to Comic-Con and have been getting myself back in place at work, at home and in time for the above-mentioned move. And, OMG, Tim Minear is a sweetheart! And Mark Sheppard is the same height as me AND a wonderful guy to boot! He signed my "Serenity: Left Behind" book - on his page! - and Tim (can i call him Tim now that we've had almost a full conversation, or do i need to continue using his full name?) signed my Firefly DVDs.

Okay, floating back down to earth again...sadly, i missed Joss the whole time i was there, but i can now say i was in the same building as him at the same time , but it doesn't change the fact that i missed him completely.

Finally, the last reason i haven't posted in a while is...i didn't have a plot. I had the slinky dress thing ALL SET UP for, like, weeks, just sitting there, taunting me...but no plot. Until last week. And then i had to get it all out and perfected - because i would never serve up something i'm not proud of to anyone - and...well...you know the rest.

I hope everyone enjoyed the little trip down Crazy Lane with me, though. I realized halfway through this series that i tend to beat up on the Captain a bit, so next time, i'll try to not give him the flu...or a broken arm...or...a broken heart...or...poison...or...any of my other plot gaming devices.

I promise.

And...who knows? If people want to see Rowena and Kopacz pop up again...maybe i'll pull them back in. But they've got Issues - note the capital "I" there - and they give me nightmares...

So, until next time, darlings...wish me luck in the move!

Best of luck on the move! I went to Comic Con as well. It was a lot of fun. Glad you had a good time!
