a little better 

He's a little better now - Faust is trying to get back on his "schedule." Saturday was a HUGE scare for us, running him back to the vet after he didn't want to eat (EVEN CHEESE) or get up to go outside. The vet seems positive and we're all hoping he'll be back to normal soon.

I love my doggers - he's a big part of our little family and I wouldn't' know what to do without him.

a bad week  

my beloved doggie is very, very sick. He started coughing and wheezing on Monday evening and Tuesday started to refuse his dog food. We took him to the vet in the afternoon Tuesday and came home with a ton of pills and care instructions. Wednesday he was a tiny bit better but still not wanting to eat his food. We gave him some bland chicken and rice and he immediately perked up but he had an accident in the kitchen. He urinated while eating his food - after I had already taken him outside for a walk. The vet says to suspend ALL of his medication and see what happens.

I'm so scared - Faust is 12 years old...

Why Malinda not Melinda? 

I have to give my mother a hard time on this one again. I was named after Melinda Tentrees from the movie "On a Clear Day You Can See Forever." My mother chose to spell it differently, or course. So I get:

UPDATE!!! THEY HAVE FIXED MY ENTRY!!

Melinda Talbot and Malinda Talbot - most of my credits in anime in two, count 'em two entries. ARGH!

AX '09 - SPJA - how you failed ALREADY 



Industry registration was only for ONE hour last night and wasn't even completely set up when I got there are 6:20.

Regular Attendees who pre-registered - like Husband - were made to stand in 3 separate but the same lines for over an hour. the first third of the line was in the sun starting at 3 PM, with no water, no access to rest rooms, and no fans or water sprayers until the end of that part of the line.

How is it that E3, Siggraph, and other large conventions at the same location take less than 30 minutes to pick up a badge but it takes over an hour, almost 2, at AX to pick up a BADGE?!??! E3 has literally FIVE TIMES the attendees!

Can you tell I sweat with husband in line to get his badge?

Anime Expo 2009 

Despite the fact that I am leaving for the land of the rising sun in left than 5 weeks - I am going to Anime Expo this weekend.

I'm a glutton for punishment - I will be sore and tired by the end of the end. Believe me - I am trying to justify going as preparation for the vacation as well. I sort of can't help myself - the people who do gundam 00 are going to be there and I get in for free!!

Expect more pictures from this year and last next week....

Hopefully I will get over my reservations with talking about the anime industry.
