I called the collision repair shop today to see what progress there was to report on my battered car. They have the parts, but don't expect the repairs to be finished until late next week. They haven't even looked at Jim's car yet. Peterborough really is
a small town. (Remind me again why I'm making vague attempts to find a job and move there?)
I'm heading down thataways this weekend for Jim's annual extended-family BBQ on Saturday and thence to SFX to see Morena Baccarin, Juliet Landau, and James Callis at SFX on Sunday. I was rather hoping that the repairs would be done in time for me to drive home in my own car, not the rental. Two weekends from now, I'm going to Toronto with Jim for a wedding. If I have to go down in between those times to pick my car up, that'll make four six-to-eight-hour round trips from Ottawa to Bancroft/Peterborough/Toronto in four consecutive weekends. ::cries::
On the up side, I figured out last night how to bit torrent! Go me. I must now make a serious effort to finish BSG S2 before seeing Gaius at SFX. A fan's work is never done, I tell ya. Figures I'd work it out just
as I was getting into Veronica Mars
Anyone got a good Gaius icon? I need a Gaius icon.
In other good news, as redeem147
reported the other day, Serenity
won a Hugo award for Best Long Form. Morena Baccarin accepted on behalf of Joss. You can see and hear her reading Joss's acceptance speech here
Wow, five tags for one post. That's gotta be a personal best.
