Hulu is showing one of my favorite cult UK TV shows!
Ultraviolet is available now. Don't miss this one.
It has everything a urban scifi series should have.

Jack Davenport , Stephen Moyer AND Idris Elba
all appear in a cool creepy near future London.
I'm not going to give away the twist but, trust me, you will like it

It has been a long , long time since I last posted.
I have had a laid back sort of fall.

Here is the good.

I have finished one of the season's shows already. It was a comedy review by The Second
City. But all the costumes were really more like props . So I spent 5 weeks reading books
and surfing the net while the show was happening down the hall.
They were a great cast , but it was a rather boring run for me.

This week we are starting Christmas Carol. It was been alarmingly easy so far.
We go into full dress on Sunday. That will be the test.

I have a new great nephew, born Nov 5th. But I have yet to receive any photos. He is healthy
and thriving, so I can wait.

I have been wallowing in the cheestastic goodness that is True Blood. I expected to like it, as I
am a long time fan of the books. But I didn't think I would reach the true fannish levels that I have.
But there is only one week left. I'm going to miss my fucked up southern gothic vampire show.
It is coming back next summer though. By then I feel I will need the escape more than ever.

But It does leave my plate clear for the final run of episodes of Battlestar Galactica.
I just know that this is going to hurt. But I think I will be able to go back and re watch this series.
And that is more than I can say of most of the shows I've followed in recent years.

Our crazy puppy is 11 months old now. He is almost 20 pounds and very dog like.
He is beginning to learn how to entertain himself. It is great to see him work things out for himself.

Now for the bad.

In 1995 I met up with a group of online fans of Anne Rice. We organized a trip to New Orleans to
attend her Halloween Ball. We filled the weekend with fun and frivolity. We still correspond daily
through a list maintained by our friend known as Ruby. She has Chron's Disease.
She has fought this illness off for over 14 years but , this time, she is losing the fight. Even if she pulls through,
this bout she will , at best , be on a feeding tube. It is hard to think of the vital and fun loving person
we know forced to live that way. I just keeping saying to myself , It's not the years in your life, it's the life in your years.

Till next time.

This is not he first time that Stephen Moyer has played a vampire on tv.
I found him on a UK series called "Ultraviolet". It was advertised as a " dark stylish vampire thriller for the X- Files generation' It is one of my favorites.

Anyway , here he is in his 1998 glory. He plays Jack Beresford, a newly turned and
unrepentant vampire.

I have been very busy during my 5 weeks off.

The puppy has grown apace. She is now weighs about 25 pounds.
We are about 2 to 3 weeks out from complete house breaking. She had her very
first bath today. And she and Betsy are romping around like old buddies.

See how cute? )

I passed my latest mammogram with flying colors. So there will be no
exploratory surgery , thank the gods!

I have completely repainted the living and dining room. In between puppy
watching , wall repairing and the traveling husband it took me a whole week.
But it looks great if I may say so myself.

Spring has struck here so that meant the switch out of seasonal clothing,
which always leads of the annual cleaning out of the basement. And that
always leads to the spring cleaning of the rest of the house. So I feel
exhausted but virtuous at the state of the house this week.

We also are making good progress on the BSG uniforms. The pants are done
except the belt loops and the shirt / jackets are shaping up very nicely.
Here is a picture to show our progress.

pretty! )

I have been watching Life on Mars, BSG ( don't even get me started on that one ) ,
The Dresden Files, Supernatural and the somewhat campy but enjoyable Blood Ties.

I'm going to miss real life when I go back to work on Tuesday.

It's almost the end of the current show. We have only the 5 show weekend
left. Then I have 5 weeks off ! I am counting the minutes till then.

Meanwhile here is a list of stuff that happened lately.

Things of the good.

I will NOT be working during Dragon Con this year. I can go to panels !
I can drink and dine with friends ! This is the first time in 3 years that I can actually
get my money's worth.

I am also employed throughout the entire summer this year. From May 14 to
August 19 I will be dressing 5 (!!!!) shows. Damn, this is just like my old college
schedule. Hopefully I will still be able to keep up that kind of pace.

We are going puppy shopping at the Humane Society in the next week or two.
Our dog has so been needing a playmate. Five weeks off will give us the time
to fold another canine into the pack.

I have finally seen all of Season 1 of The Office and am plowing through Season 2.
I have only worked in a office for less than a year of my life. So watching this show is like visiting an alternate universe. Funny but very , very strange.

I have also found the season 2 episodes of Life on Mars. Still loving this show beyond reason.

My costume buddy and I will begin work on our BSG costumes next week. We have the actual buttons are used in the TV uniforms! I found some beautiful fabric that comes
quite close to the real thing.

Things of the woe.

My computer is losing it's optical drive. It will read discs but will not burn them.
So I have 3 choices. I can replace the drive of my 5 year old iMac. I can try to find an old
outboard disc burner that will not create soft ware conflicts. Or figure out some way to
afford a shiny new Mac. It's all an exercise in frustration. This mostly means that the discs that I owe to people ( sorry [ profile] sdwolfpup ) will be delayed for a few weeks.

We had to replace our internet service provider. We have had the same one since 1995.
It is really sad that they would piss me off so badly that I have to fire them after
all these years. But at least you can now " rent" the same email addresses. I have a
year to make the transition, so not too woeful.

So much for the highlights.
