Sorry for the inactivity. Been having difficulties lately, as well as being crazy busy. Have lots of ideas for things in my head, but with everything that's going on it's very difficult to find the time and motivation to actually put pencil to paper.
Just had a crazy weekend at the calgary comic expo. They had crazy awesome guests there this year and we had the funds to grab some autographs: Linda Hamilton, (yay!) Sylvester McCoy, (super funny old dude) John Rhys Davies, (who gave a surprisingly entertaining panel) Lena Heady and Peter dinklage, (well, friends of mine got those ones) the voice actor for invader zim who tragically I have forgotten the name of... And Wil Wheaton, who is the nicest guy on the face of the planet. I wish I could apologize to each one for just standing there grinning like an idiot the whole time, particularly to wil wheaton who made me especially nervous because I am such a huge fan, but I'm sure they get that all the time and understand people get nervous. At least I hope so. It's been really awesome to watch our little expo grow from a little event with a handful of guests to this giant awesome thing with a crapload of awesome celebrities.
What else. The weather is warming up and I can't help feel a tiny bit sad... I get hay fever in the summer and I am sorry, I hate the heat and the sun. Not that it's exactly fun stomping through foot high snowdrifts with a stroller all winter... It's just more comfortable. I feel like I'm the right temperature, and my eyes don't feel like I've been sand papering them.
Ugh! Watched part of the movie Sicko last night and it made me upset. I feel cranky enough not having basic dental and eye care covered in Canada. I couldn't imagine not having basic health care. And it makes me angry and frightened because it seems my provincial government wants to attempt to model our healthcare off of the American system. Under which people like me would be completely screwed. Whatever. I'll brush up on my French and move to Quebec, I guess. Haha!
