Okay, this is the funny thing. Every other time I talk with Abbie over the phone, she asks about my girlfriend. According to her I’m completely incapable of being alone for more than a second, and she ‘knows [me] so well.’ Whatever. To be honest, I think that digging into me about having some sort of secret girlfriend really wears thin on my nerves, and no matter how much I tell her I’m single and loving every minute of it, she just brushes it off and says, “Whatever.” I hate that, because after the initial laughter wears off, it just annoys me and only reminds me that she thinks I’m shallow. :/ I can only imagine if I do move in with her, the kind of day-in day-out level of crap I’d have to put up with if that was any kind of barometer.
Anyway, this year’s Anime Expo is shaping up to be a lot of fun, though I won’t be endowed with unlimited funds like last year. The proximity of BWE2005 will cut into AX2K5, and though my priorities will be questioned by either group, it’s the only way I can do both with minimal fundage. I might have to start a BWE/AX fund tip jar or something 🙂 Anime Expo looks to be a large group this year, and I’ll have to either rent a van or fly down. I may actually fly down this year, because of the amount of people going and since the shuttles to John Wayne are cheap, it might be cheaper to go by plane than car. Though the car trips are half the damn fun 🙂 I don’t know how I’m going to do it yet.
Part of me is thinking that this might be my final year of anime fandom. Unwound’s been a shot in the arm as far as that’s concerned, but I’m teetering toward not resigning for a third season. I’m trying to cultivate Jenn to take over for me eventually, and I’d like to move into producing full-time instead of having to be on the air all the time. Not to say that I don’t like doing radio, but I’d like to do a disc jockey type of show, where I can play J-Pop/Rock/etc. I’ve been trying to see if I could do that on Japan-A-Radio, but since my voice has been splatted over that station with Unwound and other promos… so, I might have to find a new voice for some shows I’m developing for the programming director.
I’m in a weird mood today. I’d rather be at home sleeping than at work, and I’m getting irritated by stupid petty bullshit. I must be at the low point of my cycle or something.
