Weekend Wrap-up

Hey all,

I swear I'll be less of a blog slacker this week. Or at least I'll try.

On Friday night I went out for drinks with Liz, Leanna, author Alisa Kwitney, and PW blogger Barbara Vey at the Old Castle Pub in midtown. After drinks, Liz and I headed back to Astoria to get our Dance, Dance Revolution on. She's still better at it then I am, go figure. Then we ate pizza and I forced her to watch an episode of TRUE LIFE, the MTV documentary show I'm addicted to.

On Saturday Jacob and I headed to the Javitt's Center to attend the NY Comic Con. It was really crowded, but the booths had some cool stuff. I didn't dress up but a lot of people did. Still, there it was nothing compared to something like Dragon Con where the costumers go all out. I bought a box set of .dot//hack manga and a few other small things.

That night we went home and watched the documentary "His Name was Jason" about the Friday the 13th series. It was okay, nothing spectacular. This week the re-imagining/remake of the actual film comes out in theaters. (On Friday the 13th, of course!) Can't wait!

On Sunday Jacob and I did brunch then went to see My Bloody Valentine in 3D. We'd tried to see it once before, but the audience was very loud - talking through the whole thing. Luckily this time people were more respectful and we were able to stay for the whole thing. (I run into this problem SO OFTEN in NYC. I don't understand how people spend $14 for a ticket and then want to just text and talk through the whole film!)

So all in all it was a good weekend. I also worked a ton on my 4th Blood Coven book, Bad Blood. I'm up to 50k now and closing in on the end. I'll be sad to be finished - I love writing about Sunny and Rayne - but since it's due March 1st I guess it's for the best. :)

That's about all I've got to report for now!

Me too!! Even Jacob loves it. (Though he might not admit it, haha) My favorite ever was "I'm Getting Married" (the first one)The Staten Island couple is SUCH a train wreck! Love them!
