Watch me Soar

25 August 2005

Okay my news; really isn’t all that exciting or nuffin’. I was just lazy and couldn’t be arsed to post anything that made sense yesterday. Mind you, weren’t those butterfly wings pretty?

I applied for a job two weeks ago or so, was by email and I never heard back, not even an “got your email” so wasn’t expecting to hear anything back from them. But Mon[1] I got a call, library man would like to meet, for a chat.

Now, first off, a chat! I hate when they say stuff like that. Make me wonder is there really a job or are they just talking to people cause legally they have to? But anyways, today I have my chat. Wish me luck.

Still more news, aren’t you lucky :)
In my current job, I’m moving. To a new, busier library. Which may be good, or may not. We’ll see come the 12th of Sept. Also, I’ve discovered that if I want to stay there for another year I have to reapply when they advertise for new positions. Strikes me as an awkward, annoying way to do business.

I suppose seeing as I am here with random bits of news I could also tell you about the wedding? Last Sat NineMoons‘ sister got married, so I went along. Not to it all mind, just the fun drinking till you fall asleep on a windowsill waiting for a taxi. But the night was fun. There was swing dancing, and candles and grass going on fire. Plus much much more. I’m sure herself will post about it on her own blog once she is through with her exams.

And finally, went to see Serenity last night. It was great. So great.
We – NM, Cavada-girl and I- turned up at the kino to see bouncers on the door to screen 1. How cool is that? Plus they were very nice bouncers, who were there to check that no camera were taken in, only they weren’t certified to actually open bags. Luckily, they were allowed to hold popcorn while I opened my bag for them to look in.

Then, in we went, and sat waiting, hoping the film would be half as good as the series. And what did we spot, only microphones down the front, which prompted much murmuring and discussion of whether or not someone would show up. I didn’t think they would. After all there were a lot of screenings on round the UK as well last night. But the introducer fella told us to make sure and wait until after the credits. That is all the hint he’d give us.

And then it started.

Afterwards we got a questions and answer session with Jewel Staite aka Kaylee, and Sean Maher aka Simon!! Plus Chris Buchanan showed up to make a few comments, and tease us about the DVD.

Only problem, I really really want to go see it again, bu have to wait until Oct 7th :(

    Good luck Fence! I'm so jealous. I would love to work in a library.

  4. Anne says:

    Right. I'll bookmark the page for future reference, OK? ;)
    So, can we ask how it went?

    I guess I didn't realize you worked in a library…or maybe I just have a poor memory! :)

    My wife works in a University Library and for whatever reason I think she has a really cool job.

    I'm super jealous of you seeing Serenity already but am glad to hear that it lived up to your expectations and that you are anxious to see it again. I'm tempted to buy the DVD set just to watch it once more before our Sept 30th opening.

    So, is Shepherd not in this movie?

  7. Fence says:

    Why would you think that? You trying to ge me to give away spoilers?

    All the regular Firefly people make it to Serenity.

  8. Carl V. says:

    The only reason is that I watched the two trailers I've seen several times last night, pausing frequently and didn't see the Shep anywhere. Was just curious. Wanted to get over my disappointment now if he wasn't in it.
