For a change, an EXCELLENT day  
OK, start the day by calling in sick to work. Not going in today, too much important stuff to do. Then, more sleep. Need much rest, big day ahead.

Now, middle of the day, hook up with caliban, 01flux, and emeraldsight and go to see "Final Fantasy". DAMN, in-fuckin-credible. Beautiful. I can't say anything more, words fail me. I was blown away. I laughed, I cried, it was better than Cats, I'll see it again and again.

Now, that was sweet, but was just the appetizer; time for the main course. Head to the U-District, hit the University Bookstore, and wait. Why you ask? Because there's a booksigning this evening, and the man of the hour is the King of B Movies, the Human Chin, everyone's favorite wise-cracking, department-store working, chainsaw wielding Everyman-Hero.

Yes, I got to meet Bruce Campbell.

What a guy. Funny, opinionated in a downplayed way, and just too much fun to hang around. We had a blast, and I'll post the pix as soon as I get them. I don't want to sound too much like a fanboy, but it really was a helluva lot of fun. So now a I have his autograph, with the inscription 'Come Get Some!'...tres cool.

And got to end the night by heading to Heidi's place and cheering her up, it had been an off day, and my being there seemed to help immensely. Which, of course, felt great.

A day that shall live in my memory for a long time.

Re: !!!
Yes, as a fellow fanboy that was there, I must say, it was an awesome thing, the movie, seeing bruce campbell, the only thing...I wish i would have tought about getting him to write "what am i your monkey" in the book, but for the life of me I couldn't think of anything till after he had already signed it....oh well...
