My day has been made. And it's only 8:00.

How, you ask?

Danny Gokey signed a record deal.


For those of you who don't know, he came in fourth in this past season of American Idol. He was one of the heavy favorites. Since the other three have already been signed, this marks a first in AI history - all of the top four have record deals.

I can't tell y'all how happy I am about this. I really loved Danny; he's got a great voice, and I encourage everyone to listen to his album when it comes out. Unless you hate country - he's taking a country route. And even if you do, give him a chance anyway, he might change your mind.

Oooh, yay!!!! I'm gonna go bounce around my office now!!!!

A few interesting things to take note of . . . . . [Aug. 10th, 2009|08:28 am]

[music |"Dangerous and Sweet", by Lenka]

Saturday night, I was at Christiana Mall with a friend of mine. While browsing in the purse section of Macy's, we encountered a woman who wanted to know if said friend was my mother.

This girl is two years younger than I am!

Needless to say, she was pissed. Is anyone out there also amazed at the size of this woman's cajones to ask such that kind of question in that manner?

*blinkblinkblink*

Serious retail therapy followed, and (hopefully) all is now well.

Thing number two: I can now cross another item off my bucket list. I have finished Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austen. I didn't like it, but I at least finished it. Yay me!!! I'm currently reading Devil in the White City, about the World's Fair in Chicago in the 1890's. Very interesting reading, thus far.

You have reached Kelly. This morning, Kelly is still in her happy place after seeing David Cook at the Delaware State Fair last night. Kelly expects to be in her happy place for the forseeable future - although, please note that the future is hard to foresee from one's happy place. Should you wish, please leave a message, and Kelly will get back to you once she returns to reality. Thank you!

I need a vacation from my vacation . . . . [Jul. 20th, 2009|10:11 am]

Who knew three days of walking and going up stairs and walking and going down stairs and more walking and sitting on the floor for a few hours and still more walking and sitting in chairs to watch anime and yet more walking and more stair climbing and did I mention walking could make you so sore? All that being said, I had an absolute ball at Otakon this year; I can't wait for next year!!! It's entirely possible that I might be able to post pictures, if I can figure out how to do it with my camera.

(And no, Jerry, that's not an invitation for you to tell me how. If I need help, I'll ask.)

And thankfully, my camera decided to love me, and not run low on battery until late morning on Sunday, when I'd taken the lion's share of pics anyway!!! :)

And can I say, the decision to cosplay as Tohru Honda from Fruits Basket was a brilliant one! The past four years, I've been obscure characters that no one recognized, so no one wanted to take my picture. This year, I got numerous picture requests, and even three hug requests!!!! Best costume idea ever . . . . .

Ok, back to real life now. :( Books to return . . . .

I wasted a perfectly good hour of my life - which was about half an hour more than I should have - on the new SciFi show Warehouse 13 Tuesday night. I wouldn't recommend it. I should have stopped after 30 minutes, but I wanted to give it a good shot. It's kind of a mix of X-Files and Friday the 13th - the TV show, not the movies. There were supposed to be a lot of Stargate people in it, but I didn't see any that I recognized. Ah, well. If any of you missed it, don't go trying to catch up. It's not worth it.

Is it time for Otakon yet??????

While at my friend's house for our annual get-together over the weekend, I bowed to her shameless and completely intentional use of peer pressure - anyone who's ever met Eve will agree, she's a shameless user of it - and signed up for Facebook. It took all of five minutes to get addicted. I now have 24 friends. So, anyone who's on my friends list who also uses Facebook, please feel free to search me out; I can always use more friends!!!!

My sister got married on Sunday. Loads of fun was had by all.

A more detailed description, and hopefully some pictures, will be up later, once I've had time to dig myself out from under all the work that has piled up on my desk. Who knew being off for three days created so much work????

Otakon emergency [Jun. 8th, 2009|09:44 am]

[music |Daughtry, "Used To", on my iPod]

Is there anyone out there who's going to Otakon who might have space for me? Or knows someone who has some extra space? Seriously, people, I'll bring a sleeping bag and sleep on the floor. I had a space with a friend of mine, but I haven't heard from her in about a month, and I have no idea if she's even going. Quel, if you see this, for the love of God, call me back! My sister's wedding is in 2 weeks, Otakon is a month away, and I really don't have time to mess around with this. *crosses fingers* Help, anime lovers!!!
