Time for a weekend update (with your host, the Bad Luck Girl).
We didn’t have a chance to see Clash of the Titans, but we did go to WonderCon. It wasn’t as fun as I expected since it was so incredibly crowded. Getting through the aisles was almost impossible sometimes, especially near the “celeb” booths, like Brent Spiner (Data) and John de Lancie (Q) whom I now associate with Breaking Bad.
We also saw Adam Baldwin from Firefly. He had this embarrassed smile as he sat there in his booth while people went nuts taking pictures. I heard one middle-aged woman say, “Oh my God, he’s so gorgeous!”
Another highlight was this booth selling a magazine called Girls and Corpses. Either it’s some fetish or a joke. Either way, disturbing! (Now I’m sure I’ll get hate mail from Girls and Corpses lovers.)
There were tons of photo ops but I only managed to get one:
That’s not me by the way, just some random lady having her pic taken with the alien.
In other news, I heard back from the Graywolf Press contest, and while I didn’t win, my memoir was one of the 15 finalists. Yay, I don’t totally suck! I’m also busy this week with a few deadlines. I love deadlines!
As for my reading, I read the first Harry Potter, which was awesome, and now am reading Memoir of a Geisha for the first time. It’s good in a trashy way.
I hate to admit this, but I would have been totally jazzed to see Adam Baldwin — except, I don’t think of him as the guy from Firefly. If you’ve never seen Chuck, I would highly recommend it. It’s one of those series I’d hear about but after watching the first two seasons on DVD, I was totally hooked.
From the looks of that lady, I think she thinks that is the real Alien.
