Travelled all the way up north to be there for my grandparents 70th wedding anniversary.
A few surprise relatives showed up, which sort of set a weird tone for the whole weekend. The mood at the house is weird and tense. I think my mom will be relieved when everyone will have left.

My parents do hold on to some of my old stuff that I used to never want thrown out. I'm finally starting to destroy-recycle-sell some old things.

Treasures that I found and that I will keep: old vinyl records. Mostly Bowie; quite a few collectibles like rare recordings, picture discs, special mix.
Geeky moment of the weekend: vinyl soundtrack record of Tron.

Stuff I immediately threw away: first fanfic (must've been around 10-12 years old) I ever wrote, inside a notebook. Eurk! Utter, complete trash! Also threw away some bad bad bad Transformers doodles (circa 1986).
I swear, my eyes are bleeding right now.

After this little trip, looks like I'll be heading for NYCC at the beginning of October. If there are no changes. More infos soon as the plans become more solid.
There will be one other con in October I plan to go to, but just as a visitor: the CTN Expo in Burbank. Quite fun last year.

Apart from that, life will return to its normal rhythm of work work and more work.

Made me think my life is mostly surrounded by my work and certain characters, which sprang up these mental images:

To anyone visiting me: I promise I will throw them out. They are rather invading.

This is extra funny because I have actually been to your apartment. XD

Sep. 7th, 2010 11:59 pm (UTC)
Yup, fingers crossed for NYCC. I should be set sometime this weekend.
Sep. 6th, 2010 03:25 am (UTC)
Hey now, Arluk is an original character... sorta.
Sep. 7th, 2010 11:58 pm (UTC)
He'S one of the rare that's hanging around the place. Not necessarily a good things
Sep. 6th, 2010 03:25 am (UTC)
Oh god XD How do you manage to get any work done with that kind of environment??
Sep. 8th, 2010 12:00 am (UTC)
I close the bedroom door. It works most of the time.
Sep. 6th, 2010 04:23 am (UTC)
Hoping to see you at NYCC!

(And I love the strip - and I know the feeling XD)
Sep. 8th, 2010 12:02 am (UTC)
Likewise! Hoping to meet you in person at NYCC.

I do remember you doing strips of you and your characters. It must happen to every darn artists out there at some time XD

Crossing my fingers to be there. Not 100% certain at this time.

I feel you on that...damn imaginary characters sitting around in their skivvies and altogethers drinking up all the booze like they OWN the place or something.

I bet Zhao leaves the mayo out when he makes sammiches too BIG SLOB (I wouldn't be opposed to more wacky imaginary roomate hijinks comics...think of all the fights over the cable and who gets the last donut!)

Sep. 8th, 2010 12:04 am (UTC)
They also empty the fridge and don't replace anything they eat.
As for cable, at least they can record their shows.
Let's not talk about the fight over the video games.
Sep. 6th, 2010 06:44 am (UTC)
ooh! I have a ticket for New York Anime Festival, but I think it works for both? ...I don't really know what I'm talking about, but basically I really hope I can see you! :D
Sep. 8th, 2010 12:05 am (UTC)
I'm not sure, but I think you are right. Best to double check on their website.
If I can make it, looking forward to meet you too!
Sep. 6th, 2010 06:49 am (UTC)
Ahahaha, that 'Roomies' strip is freaking awesome!
Sep. 8th, 2010 12:06 am (UTC)
There might be more in the future.
I live with weird characters all day.
Sep. 6th, 2010 07:21 am (UTC)
Your roomies are awesome.

Zhao can walk around nekkid in my apartment all day with a ripped frame like that. Around here it's either flubby or bony so totally unacceptable.
Sep. 8th, 2010 12:07 am (UTC)
Re: Your roomies are awesome.
It's not the shirtless Zhao that's the problem; his demand for high heat inside the place makes it hard for others. Frankly, it's not worth the trouble *turns on the AC and gives Zhao a winter coat*
Sep. 6th, 2010 08:03 am (UTC)
"Arluk! Put on some pants"

And Arluk's response - priceless! XD

It looks sort of like they're kissing, in your icon. XD
Sep. 8th, 2010 12:08 am (UTC)
Sokka and Bumi kissing?
*shudders* XD
Sep. 8th, 2010 03:08 am (UTC)
Hehe. Now THERE's an odd couple.
Sep. 6th, 2010 08:09 am (UTC)
...at least you don't have to worry about laundry?

Sep. 8th, 2010 12:08 am (UTC)
That's a good way of looking at it XD
Sep. 6th, 2010 11:21 am (UTC)

Hmmm. Arluk's not too bad, really. A little skinny, but I suspect he's got some muscle. Poor fellow, though, being a polar Water Tribe fellow -- no bodyfat = freezes easily. (My kid is genetically skinny and putting her in a pool to learn how to swim, except in the height of summer, tends to result in shiver-kid in 15 minutes. *sigh* )

Luck with cons and stuff, and awwwwww on the loss of doodles!
Sep. 8th, 2010 12:10 am (UTC)
He's lean muscles. Can't seem to built up weight. Definitely stronger than he seems.
He's got a good resistance to the cold, but yeah. He sometimes wished he had extra body fat.
Oh believe me: those doodles deserved to disappear.
Sep. 9th, 2010 01:35 am (UTC)
*beth confesses to likin' 'em lean...*

But if the doodles had stayed, they might've provided proof that hard work pays off, and your skill did not appear full-formed? *beth blinks innocently, really, honestly, totally innocent here*

Of course he chills anyway he likes. Anyone who tries to make him do otherwise will pay!
Sep. 6th, 2010 02:07 pm (UTC)
I can totally relate to that comic. Do you know how hard it is to keep the sons of Feanor from raiding your jewelry? Except for Maglor. He keeps raiding my CD collection. *is such a Tolkien nerd*

Sep. 8th, 2010 12:11 am (UTC)
Those darn characters. They definitely get too comfortable around the place sometimes, don't they?
Sep. 6th, 2010 05:37 pm (UTC)
Shirtless Zhao huh? I guess sooner or later you would get abstinence from that :-p
Sep. 8th, 2010 12:12 am (UTC)
Hard to get abstinence from that. But the constant high heat is annoying.
Sep. 6th, 2010 09:09 pm (UTC)
Revisiting items is both neat and weird, isn't it? I did this quite a bit over the last five years, and then with my brother's items, and then for myself again this Spring.

As for the fanfic and doodles: You have to start somewhere ^_^
Sep. 8th, 2010 12:13 am (UTC)
I still haven't gone through everything. I expect more drawings will go the way of the recycling bin on the next round.
Sep. 7th, 2010 01:16 am (UTC)
Er, let me know if any one of them bails and you need another roommate to pick up the rest of the lease. I wouldn't mind rooming with Zhao! ;)
Sep. 8th, 2010 12:14 am (UTC)
I'll just warn you in advance: he doesn't clean up the bathroom. You'd be surprised how much hair shavings there can be when he trims those sideburns!
Sep. 7th, 2010 10:51 pm (UTC)
Wow. You got some awesome roommates. Mine are always fighting about which one of them is better and then demand that I do stories about them. If I don't listen, they just pout and poke my head nonstop.

I do LOVE the idea of Zhao and Arluk as roommates. It's like Avatar's answer to the Odd Couple!
Sep. 8th, 2010 12:16 am (UTC)
Oh believe me, they torture me about that too: pay attention to me, do a story with me and all that.
I try to keep Zhao and Arluk separate as much as possible. There is some bad blood going on between these two.
Sep. 8th, 2010 04:23 am (UTC)
so hot... SOOOO HAAAWT! :D
Sep. 8th, 2010 12:33 pm (UTC)
It's like Drawn Together. Wahahaha. Love it! :D

It's a nice release of tension what you got there. XDDDDDDDD

I still have my old stuff from my before years...some of them got lost while moving from one house to another. :|
