Comics, comical, and comingle

Comics! Who here reads DC comics? Kassie is discussing Batman: Year 1 and Robin: Year 1 at Hey, Don't Judge Me and we're hoping to make it like a read-along feature. Nothing public, but if you need help finding those particular tomes, PM me and we'll get you going. Girls who know their stuff talking comics = awesome.

Comical! I posted my review of Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi's Mary Sue YA novel, "A Shore Thing" last night, and also won't say anything public but I would love to help you get a copy of that, as well. PM me for more information on where to find it.

Comingle! Those of you in the DFW area, the Dallas International Film Festival (formally an AFI festival, but they're branching out to reach more indie fish) starts tonight! Why should you care? Because two films I'm in are showing there, one of them is a world premiere! It's very exciting. WUSS got loads of acclaim at SXSW where it debuted a few weeks ago, and is already sold out online and has rush seats available for both, so get there early and get tickets. It's dark and funny and I'm in it for a few scenes! Narcissism & Me is a short that is also dark and hilarious and my brother in law wrote it and stars in it (and I play his Dream Girl, lol.) That's on Wednesday, and I'm super excited to finally see it on the big screen. You can still get tickets for both showings, and the shorts are promising to be fabulous.

And tonight is the Jersey Shore reunion, so tune in (I'm not kidding when I tell y'all I love this show. It's inexplicable. But there it is. Also, the reviews I've been posting all season long are meant for people who are disdainful, in case you didn't know.) What am I going to do until they hit Italy? OH RIGHT, REAL HOUSEWIVES. Lol. I'm actually a smart, educated person. I just love trashy tv.

Aw, I wish work would fly me to Dallas one year when the film festival is on! Then I could walk behind you on the red carpet and hold your drink while you pose for the cameras.

Have a fantabulous time!

I would fully support that! Thanks sugar beet!

I had a pretty frustrating time at the comics shop today, and this was as someone who went in saying "I want X, Y, and Z." Dude tried to convince me this one book was out of print (no) and they just flat out didn't have the other stuff I wanted. I might have to start incorporating instructions for how to beat men in comic shops to death with a tpb.

I've got a pretty awesome comics shop in Dallas that I go to, and he's totally aware of the importance of respecting fangirls. Now, that's ONE of the many in town, obv. {edited to say: it's the ONLY one like that in town, there aren't many. Grammar huh?}

I totally think you should make a "here's how to get what you want without being talked down to" post.

Btw, have you seen those Chocolate Temptations yogurt ads where the parents trick the kids by scaring them into handing you yogurt back over? For some reason they remind me and your fake parenting commentary.

Ahahahaha, I haven't seen those! Now I'm going to go search for them.

My timing is off by a week. Curses and fist shaking!

I did post a comment on the book review but the internet banished it into oblivion. I'm sure it was truly witty, if I could only remember it.

I know! I was hoping they'd show next weekend, but the universe hates me.

Wait, the internet bahleeted you? I WILL NEVER SPEAK TO IT AGAIN.

I often feel that way about the internet, and then it dangles something shiny in front of me and all is forgiven again.

I so wish I could go to that film festival. I susepct it's going to be a damn good time.

I bet both of those will eventually be playing in a theater near you soon. Film festival season is just getting started. I'll keep you posted as acceptances roll in.

DAMN, I wish I could have gon to the film festival. NEXT YEAR.

Hell, I wish I could just get out and socialize more :D

I am smart and educated as well, and also love trashy tv!

The DIFF is an AWESOME festival - opening ceremonies were last night and Ann Margaret received a special award for always promoting Texas film. She's hilarious. It runs for the next two weeks, so if you get a day of goodness, you should venture out! ;)

Are you saying my snap judgment of you based on a few words in an LJ post is WRONG? O:

I'll be in Dallas/Ft. Worth on the 15-16 for a tournament, which looks like it's too late for the film festival :( Booooooooo!

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.

Time Wot It Is
