Date With the Dead was only about 20 minutes long, so I can't really go into too much detail. The idea was fully awesome, the dialogue was fully awesome, the acting was fully awesome, and last but not least, Andy Jones was fully awesome. Go see it. It's being shown at the Nickel Independent Film Festival on June 25, during the Late Night Horror Show. That starts at 10:00 PM, and I will definitely be in attendance. I'm hoping to check out as much of the festival as I can. I won't bother with the Festival pass, as I have to work some nights during the week. The shows are $10 each, late night showings are only $7.50. Bargain!
I feel a wee bit broken right now. It was shipment day at work, which involves lots of bending and lifting and leaning and reaching. I'm not supposed to do too much because of my back problems, but I still have to do some work. I find days like this hard. Even though I'm doing minimal physical labour, I'm doing it for 7 or 8 hours straight. I had to get groceries on the way home and tidy up the apartment a bit too, so I think it's time for a rest. I plan on spending the rest of the evening curled up with World War Z (author Max Brooks, the genius behind The Zombie Survival Guide). Even though I rationed the time I spent reading it (because it's fully awesome), I'm almost finished. Next up is a Wolverine TPB that Morgan lent me, and Bill Bryson's In A Sunburned Country, which I bought with the Chapters gift card that Jess gave me for my birthday.
All my posts (probably) won't have so many mundane personal details in them. I know some people are interested in the same things I am and will want to check out some of the cool stuff that I've discovered. I enjoy reading mundane personal details about other people's lives though. Most people are nosy like that, and that's what makes blogging so popular. It's a great outlet for me too. I've always loved writing, but haven't really stuck with any form of it, for varying reasons (all of which can be filed under A for Apathetic). This is also a challenge of sorts. I have a tendency to start things, get really involved, but then never follow through. I know my patterns. Any readers of this will probably notice a distinct drop in the frequency of my posts before too long. I'm ok with this. The biggest challenge will be continuing on with this after the long pause. Though, if the plans for the remainder of this year that are slowly being, um, planned, come into fruition, I will most definitely have lots and lots to blog about.
