Just back from a day in the state just South of mine. I really love it down there. It's probably where we should have moved to, not where we are. But in any case had a Pros Day, which I sorely needed.|
Got to silver_cyanne's house at 11:00 on the dot, because God knows, I'm always on time. tayawulf was delayed by traffic so silver_cyanne and I headed out to eat. Tayawulf was not long delayed, so we ordered and had a nice talk about Close Quarters, zines, stories, Pros in general. I love this show.
Then we returned to silver_cyanne's, with cookies and Diet Coke and ice, and watched several of recycledmedia's Pros vids, including the multimedia "Wild West Show" which is my absolute Favorite Vid of All Time. It was the first time ever that I saw Bodie and Doyle, so that would explain why I love it, even if it weren't so perfectly done as it is.
Then we watched "Operation Susie". I was dreading it. I had never seen this ep and really had no desire to. I'm fond of Cowley (and I don't believe he has designs on either of the lads) and I was sure that this ep would totally destroy all respect I had for him. But, it was not as bad as I thought it would be. Not high on my re-watch list tho.
Then - as always - I forced everyone to watch an Emergency! ep. It was "Smoke Eater" for those of you keeping score at home. My favorite, altho difficult to watch, rescue is in that ep, and I knew tayawulf would enjoy at least one ep of Emergency! as she grew up with the show as did I. I can mention anything from this series, and she knows it. It's very cool for me, to have a friend that "knows" the show. My childhood revolved around Saturday nights at 8 pm and hers did, too.
Then we ventured back into Pros, watching "Blind Run", b/c it seems a lot like "Operation Susie" at least to me, and I needed something to counteract "Operation Susie". But then it started to storm and I developed one of my lovely, always enjoyable, panic attacks, so I rushed out of there and flew home (not quite, but close).
Very nice to be home! And I managed to come home w/ four of silver_cyanne's Pros zines, which I'm very happy about - I predict days and days of enjoyable Pros reading, which is really all I want to do these days.
I called silver_cyanne when I was almost home so that she would not worry about me, and she and tayawulf had moved onto "In the Public Interest". I was sick w/ envy, but that's what I get for being constantly nervous when I am more than 20 miles from home.
So I'll watch that tonight, but it will not be as fun as if I would have been a big girl and watched it w/ silver_cyanne and tayawulf. But all in all, I did good! I was six hours away from home before I lost it! And it was a great, great day.
One of my sons is in the military, and he always says that the best people he's ever met, and the worst people he's ever met, are in the military. I know what he means. Fandom is very diverse - has great people, and people that I really don't click with - but I so value the friends I have made here. I am blessed.
