Bent-con was absolutely lovely, primarily because Claudia Christian is such a lovely person :)
We passed in the hallway prior to her panel where we waved at each other, and then before the panel she came in to where I was sitting and asked for a picture of us together, which she then promptly posted to Facebook (and now has >1300 likes… eep!)!
Her panel was a personal Q&A session, in which a handful of things were discussed: her work on B5 (and a few funny stories that I can try to relay here if anyone’s interested), keeping up with the B5 cast, voice acting, and her work now on a documentary regarding the use of the Sinclair Method as a treatment for alcoholism. When I raised my hand to bring up the topic of Helga Sinclair in Atlantis, she called me by my name and I momentarily forgot the question xD
After the Q&A she signed my ‘Ivanova is God’ t-shirt, which I now need to figure out how to display properly. I am really really glad I ended up going. It was nice to scope out a new convention and to meet someone I really admire :)
My getup for the ‘inner geek’ themed barbecue at work. I was having way too much fun with this :)
This afternoon I did a bit of editing on the stat bars for Susan’s Army of Light jacket. The original set had the safety-pin type of connector, which kept the metal a bit too high off the material and let the stat bars kind of flop around. I replaced those with butterfly clutches so the bars can be flush to the jacket.
I didn’t purchase enough to also update Sheridan’s, but now I know how to do it so I’ll be ready to update when the time comes.
The reason I’m updating mine now is because my workplace has themed barbecues every month, and this month it is to show off your inner geek. My inner geek is an extrovert :) To top it off, the shirt I’ll be wearing underneath it (because I don’t want to wear the jacket all day) is an ‘Ivanova is God’ t-shirt that my mom gave me a while back. It’s totally her fault I’m such a huge sci-fi fan.
So I wrote up a thing about how Korra attacking the judge was supremely disappointing… not because she was rash and/or headstrong, but because she had no reason to, and then her actions were magically justified.
I decided not to post it because getting passionate about anything on the internet can be a dangerous thing to do.
Man I pretty much vanished from tumblr for a while there. Nothing too big to talk about. Work as been crazy busy for the past few weeks, and it’s going to stay busy until the 10th.
Tonight I purchased the parts to build my own computer! Parts should be here before the 10th, but probably won’t work on building it until afterward. I plan on posting pics of the build if anyone is curious :)
