Thanksgiving cozy Tommy


Tommy likes getting cozy under his USC blanket! This is my aunt and uncle’s dog. I went to their house for Thanksgiving where I had a turkey dinner, watched The Internship and The Hunger Games, and chatted with family. It was a very nice evening.

Apparently Tommy doesn’t like to get cold. When he gets on the couch, he likes to be covered by the blanket – and I mean covered. He usually prefers his head to be covered too, but sometimes he’ll push his head out later, presumably because he gets hot. You know what? I do this too when it gets cold.

I also found out that my cousin is considering going to UCI. That’d be pretty cool in my opinion, but I’m not sure he’d really care that I’d be in the area.

Hopefully everyone else had a happy Thanksgiving (or a good Thursday for my friends outside the US).

Meeting Henley


I was so lucky to meet Henley today. He was born yesterday, 11/13/13. He has some awesome parents in Darnell and Alex! I got to hold him for a couple hours, and it was an amazing experience. I feel like I could watch him for hours. I’m looking forward to getting to know him for years to come.

The Intergalactic Nemesis: Book Two – Robot Planet Rising

I saw The Intergalactic Nemesis: Book Two – Robot Planet Rising, the live-action, graphic novel, radio drama, today at the Segerstrom Center. It was a ton of fun.

We got to take some photographs, but that was actually the second thing we did. First, we did some voice-acting.

gem wanted to be an evil dinosaur, and Joe Ochman helped show her how. She was very excited to do her evil laugh!

I played the sidekick. I tried to act like a young, eager guy. It was a lot of fun.

Of course, the show was excellent as well. I love the way the cast interact on a layer above the characters as well. I’m looking forward to reading the graphic novel and listening to the radio drama to see how they differ. Hopefully I get to see Book Three performed eventually as well!
