Last night was “guy’s night out” – but, with Marty G., Alex Levine, and Rob Cooper long gone, Carl and Lawren out of town, our number was reduced to a modest two. It was just Ivon and me. Still, we made the best of things, hitting Cobre Restaurant in Gas Town for some nuevo latino cuisine and eating enough for seven anyway.
When we asked about desserts, our waitress listed the three choices of the night. “That sounds great,”I said. “We’ll do that.”
“Which one?”she asked.
“All of them.”
Eating heavy clearly requires you to expend a lot of energy because by the time I got home, I was wiped. I was in bed by 11:00. And good thing too. I had a big day ahead of me..
Even though we’re technically on hiatus, the show must go on. Scripts have to get written (except in my case as I’ve stalled out at the top of Act II) and visual effects spotted and approved. So this afternoon found me in the company of a trio of Stargate’s most talented –
Akemi recognized Mike from his recent Q&A on the blog – and she did so in fine fashion, pointing to him and loudly proclaiming: “I’ve seen you on the blog. Soooooo handsome!” The latter a reference to the opinions of her friends at the language school who perused that particular entry with her. Mike proceeded to turn a delightful shade of pomegranate. We eventually settled in and checked out the finished visual effects for Awakening. Wow! I think it’s their best work yet. The movements are fluid and incredibly life-like, the body language and the subtlest of glances alone imbuing the characters with personality. And the ship sequences are pretty damn cool too! And speaking of pretty damn cool ship sequences – we spotted Resurgence I as well and that episode is chock full of spacely operatic goodness. Another visual effects extravaganza for the first part of our mid-season two-parter.
Tomorrow, I’m going to see what I can do about that mailbag. Oh, and that second act.
Today’s entry is dedicated to blog regular maggiemayday.
