To celebrate my sister’s birthday, we decided to go out for lunch. It was to be me, Andria, Daisy, and actress Torri Higginson who is in town shooting a new series. Well, Daisy ended up bowing out to oversee some home repairs. And then sis cancelled because she was feeling unwell. So it was just Torri and me celebrating over spicy-salty Chinese food – and then some delicious mochas. I have no dined with Torri in four different cities (Toronto, L.A., San Diego, and Montreal). Here’s hoping we get to add New York and Vancouver to the list eventually.
On a somewhat related note, here are the results of a little poll I posted to twitter yesterday. Which was your favorite Stargate series? SG-1, that produced slightly twice as many episodes as Atlantis got received slightly twice as many votes, while Universe, that produced roughly a third the episodes of Atlantis received roughly a third its vote total.
So what is the take-away? How about the fact that 3,670 people voted! MGM, take note!
Came across these in mom’s garage. Yes, the Dungeon Master Guide is conspicuously absent – but only because it’s sitting on a shelf in my Toronto apartment. Ah, the good old days when it was Nick (Lawful Good Paladin), Paul (Lawful Neutral Monk), Cas (Chaotic Good Fighter), and yours truly (Chaotic Neutral Goblin Thief). Our character personalities perfectly paralleled our own. Today, Nick is a computer consultant, Paul is t.v. writer, Cas is an actor (currently headlining The Expanse), and I’m a blogger reminiscing about my D&D days.
Also came across a few of my favorite reads from back in the day. (Not pictured: The Complete Works of William Shakespeare, the Fafhrd & The Gray Mouser series, the Elric of Melnibone series).
Homeward-bound tomorrow morning! I’ve got a lot of work – and lot of lunches – to catch up on!
