Egyptian dragons?  I'm really looking for any kind of actual image.  From my understanding, many things in Egyptian mythology are CALLED dragons, but bear no resemblance to them in form.  Except maybe some snakes.  So I'm looking for ANY image of something in Egyptian mythology that looks similar to either the Western or Eastern idea of a dragon.  I'm not sure I can accurately explain why I need this, but I would be very grateful to whoever found something really good.  I'm not sure what I can offer in return, but perhaps some trading of knowledge could be arranged.


As a side note, my birthday yesterday was just about perfect, and I discovered that blackberry/chocolate chip pancakes and apple cider bacon are together the greatest breakfast in the history of ever.  But is certainly only a once in a great while treat...

Phew!  So there are about 8,000 things I should post about.  The holidays, (Including a lovely New Year's), the new boy (Marco, the increasingly friendly cat) the Bride Wars premiere party, and so much more, but that will have to wait.

First of all, it looks like my holiday party plans will have to be scrapped due to not being able to figure out a good date that isn't already taken.  This seems to be my curse.  So I'm going way in advance here with my B-Day plans!

WHAT:   Hopefully getting a bunch of people together in a relaxed chill setting, beginning with a sojurn to see CORALINE

WHEN:  This is where the WAY in advance kicks in; FEB 21 (The Saturday before my birthday) whatever time seems to work out best.  If people are interested, please let me know.  I won't need a definite head count, but it would be nice to make plans a lil bit in advance for finding a place to go get dinner and whatnot.

WHERE:  Most likely Liberty Tree Mall, but I would not be opposed to people trying to convince me to go to a different cinema, but the reasoning better be good.  ;)

Love and miss you all!!

PS - If people know of a good time coming up in the next week or so for a pseudo after holiday get together, feel free to let me know.  I have no objection to seeing people sooner :)

Ok, I can't help posting today.  On Sunday Dan and I (And Mauro, and my uncle and cousin) were at the Survivor Series in Boston.  Dan and I had our awesome seats (and got to take them home too!) and it was overall an incredible show, despite the severe lack of Jeff Hardy, although he did hit people with chairs, which marks the first time I've seen that live.  Cena and Edge both won the big belts, which marks the first time either Dan or I has seen one of the big titles change hands, and since Cena is a hometown boy, it was very special.

So we got back from that, and I had about an hour and a half of sleep before going to an all day shoot for a TV pilot.  Not sure if I'm allowed to give details, but it is for a major network.  I had an absolute blast as the people were extremely fun to work with, and I even spent a bunch of time chatting with the stars and a very kind stunt coordinator who gave me some good advice.  But the best thing is:

I got my first Union (AFTRA) Voucher!!  Hey, it's not SAG, but it's a start, and I'm so very excited!

 Despite rumors to the contrary...

Dan, Godsteve and I do NOT live in Western Mass....

We still live in Salem.  My FAMILY lives in Western Mass and we often go visit.


Oh, and if you care, I really don't use LJ or Facebook much at all anymore.

I can still be found on AIM sometimes as KetalaSt, but I spend most of my time building for an online game (MUD), getting some work in film and commercials, doing photography and making jewelry.  Tonight we are going to see The Who, and in November we have 5th row seats to the WWE Survivor Series.

That is all, please return to your regularly scheduled LiveJournal.


Oh, if you play on MUDs and are interested, drop me a line and I'll give you the address.

If anyone wants a good big TV, I'd much rather sell it to someone we know, and will certainly go down on the price.

Thanks!


Cleaning house has been fun.  We were out in western mass this past weekend, I'll give details later...  We're going out there again THIS weekend.

Whew!

An Acura Integra.  Our new (used) car.  We have named it R2-D2.  





We had a lovely time on the Fame, and the fireworks were spectacular.  We sat on the boat to watch them.



More photos will probably follow.

Been very busy, so if I don't know what is going on with everyone and I've missed something important, I'm very sorry (really!) but I haven't read LJ in several days due to the busy-ness of everything...

Tomorrow is triplehdm and my 2nd "anniversary."  We're going out on the Fame to watch the fireworks in Salem.  I'm very excited and hope it doesn't rain...

Also, we have an acquisition that I will post pictures of soon...  I was waiting to post until everything turned out well with it...

I promise a real post later.  Lots of stuff going on.  I find it very strange that I was talking about George Carlin the day he died without knowing that he had passed on until now.

I will never buy a Saab in tribute to his memory.

"The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has proposed a cruel plan to kill all the feral cats on San Nicholas Island—that’s as many as 200—using leghold traps and hunters with dogs. Your written feedback to the Fish and Wildlife Service is vitally needed by tomorrow, Tuesday, June 17."


Please send an e-mail through their system to help prevent the killing of cats on San Nicolas island.  Action needs to be taken NOW!  

Please pass this on to everyone you know.

Thank you!

If you ever want your head to hurt, read about the Chinese emperors and empresses during and after the Three Kingdoms era.


It isn't good to be the king.

Or queen.

Or anybody.
