kitty? :(

I had a dream last night that I found a kitten in my apartment.. it was a teeny tiny orange stripped kitten the size of a mouse, just wandering around the carpet in my living room. I picked it up and it was no bigger than my hand, and it was fluffy and plump. I was soo happy! Some "friend", who would now be unwelcome in my home, told me i should get rid of it cause i'm not allowed to have pets in my apartment complex. I whispered to mini kitty that he would stay with me and no one would ever know. I just had a building inspection two days ago and the manager wouldn't be by again anytime soon!
and then i woke up :(
Since I cannot take images from my brain and show them to you, I give you: vampire kitties.

In other news. friday we saw Tropic Thunder, which was pretty funny, and went out for drinks afterwards. Last night was Arnie night at Matt's, we had pizza and beer and watched ten minutes of the best parts of Arnold's first movie "Hercules in New York" and then "Commando", pure gold. It makes me really want a projector & theater setup like Matt has, and it also makes me miss Arnocorps pretty badly. In Commando, Arnold had the black camo paint streaked across his a goddamn hero.

Last night was the bowling tournament, models vs textures vs creatures. I arrived too late to get a spot on the lanes, which was probably for the best for my team's score, but i wore my models dept tshirt and supported with cheers and the drinking of beer. It was also Shannon's birthday and we continued onto a few bars afterwards. His girlfriend got him 30 beers, which he was expected to drink on his own... i think he got pretty close, cause he got decently drunk! evidence!

real classy, guys. real classy.

Work-Shop, Fuck Yeah.

On wednesday I got a tour of the Weta Workshop! Fuuuuuuck. yeah. It was pretty damn cool to see where all of the props and armors and maquettes were made by the work of peoples hands. It's a much more inspiring environment than rooms and rooms full of computers. Oh well, not to say I don't enjoy my job. I'm actually having quite a bit of fun with my work right now :) Anyway, at the workshop I got to hold an Oscar (it was heavy), wear an elven helmet from LOTR, and ride the halo warthog! pretty fucking cool for geeks like me.


Last friday was Wiki's birthday. It was the first time I got to hang out with my group of girlfriends in a non-work function. Wiki wanted people to dress up in prom theme, and well, I didn't bring my collection of prom/horrible 80s dresses with me... so I did my best to glam up with what I had. Turns out nobody dressed up in prom attire anyway, unless their proms look very different from ours! We went to this place called Duke Carvell's Swan Lane Emporium. It was run by Wiki's boyfriend I think. It had a pretty cool interior design going on, and a nice laid back, posh if you wanna, sneakers & hoodie if you wanna, sort of vibe. I love places like that. I felt a tad awkward at first, since I didn't know anybody. But it got better as the night went on, and of course a little bit of alcohol helped smooth the transition. By the end of the night I had had some decent conversations and got to know the girls a little better, and I even got hugs and kisses on the way out, which made me feel warm and fuzzy :) I'm doing ok here on my own, but I'm certainly looking forward to seeing my friendships develop.
