You know, I was actually going to type this entry yesterday on my hour lunch at work, because I knew I'd be too exhausted when I got home. But, when got to the computer room, someone had turned the AC up to the point where I expected to see small penguins doing drill routines in between the desks. It's cold in my department, but that was positively *frigid*. I promptly fled, for fear of frostbite. And, sure enough, I was completely exhausted when I got home-- I fell asleep on the couch. ^^; Eh.
But! (She exclaims, needlessly) Here I am, with general Rl and fandom comments, not to mention actual fanart. I know-- I'm shocked too. ^_~
- Eeee! I took my nieces to the midnight showing of HBP, and we had such a good time. There weren't a lot of people dressed up this time, but it was *packed*, and everyone was in a good mood. I thought the film itself was pretty good, aside from being the first one that couldn't really stand on its own. And, though there will never be enough Snape in any film for me, I *was* a little disappointed at his lack of screen time. Hello! Title character! *waves wildly* Less Ron and Lavander, more Half-Blood Prince, please!
(But, as Amber and I have pointed out previously, bonus points for emo!Draco. On the train! In the bathroom! Convenient for *any* setting! *giggles*)
- I also saw Transformers 2. I didn't think it was nearly as cute as the first. There were just too many jokes related to male organs. Though it is always deeply entertaining to see the next chapter in the saga of Megatron and Optimus' torrid, passionate and forbidden love affair. ^_~ (Or, come on, you know you see it too.) Also, Bumbleebee was as ever and made me want to pinch his little robot cheeks. And we heard Sam say, 'I love you, man' to Bee!
(I actually 'ship Sam/bee. ... ... Well, I'm going to hell anyway. I suppose I shouldn't worry about going to the special one. ^_~)
- TORCHWOOD SERIES THREE ON MONDAY WHOOOOOO!!!!. Alas, while I remain unspoiled, I am hearing vague rumblings from British fans that all may not end well. *frets* The promo images, however... Wow. Actual, pure and official Jack/Ianto. I don't want to hotlink, but search if you don't believe me. It's out there. ^_________^
I've actually decided to skip the RL news. It's not bad, just... eh, some other time.
Now the fanart! I have Transformers and The 4400. Thanks to Josh's stubborn demands to be included in my little work related comics, I've gotten more practice drawing men. (Some of this practice involves Leslie and I hitting him for being male, and thus difficult to draw. ^_^) I know the idea of holo!Bee isn't new, but I couldn't resist doing a little sketch of what I think Bee would look like disguised as a human, or as a hologram thereof. Here's A Boy Called Bee-- I did try my hand at his robot form, but I'm afraid it sucks mightily. *sigh* I erased my handwritten comments and typed them in, since my handwriting is attrocious.
Second, Amber recently rewatched The 4400 (thus subliminally prompting me to do the same ^_~), and reminded me of our Julian-verse. It's been a while since I've drawn them, but I did little concept sketches of Marco, Garrity, and Julian in hopes of maybe doing a short comic. I had a great time doing it! I hope you like, Amber-dear!
*bounces* Torchwood tomorrow!
