|1628 - Albany after all|
I'm getting on an airplane in about 14 hours to go to Albany. Whee. The good news is that, by buying so close to flight time, it was expensive enough that going to LA this weekend didn't raise the price any. I'm going to the Hollywood Collectors and Celebrities Show, where the lovely Cindy Morgan will introduce me to Bruce Boxleitner. I'm really looking forward to that. I'm not so sure he is, especially since I'll be in the TRON costume...
After that, I get to schlep myself back across the country to Greensboro, NC, for a couple of weeks - although I'm going to go home for the weekend in between.
In the meantime, I gotta go finish laundry and pack, then load up the car and head for the Cities - since I'm spending the night up there instead of getting up at 2 AM to make the flight.
current mood: busy
current music: Black Sabbath - Iron Man
If you have to mangle perfectly good foreign words, like "schlepp" (german, from "schleppen" == hauling), please at least do it half-arsed right: in this case, with a double-p. http://dict.leo.org/
is your friend.
I'd always seen it 1) as Yiddish, and 2) with one P. Then again, since Yiddish is half German...
Good luck with Bruce, he is a really nice guy. I got to work with him on "Gods and Generals" where he played 'General James Longstreet'. He was very cordial to all the reenactors and joked a lot.
Cindy tells me he's a nice guy, too. Then again, I dunno what his reaction to the costume will be, or to my telling folks who comment on my physique "well, I know I don't look like Bruce Boxleitner"...
