Long Time, No Write

*taps mic*

Is anybody still out there?

I see that it's been nearly two years since I posted. Yikes! Just wondering if anyone is still here.

Life has been keeping me busy, and I haven't had much time for fandom since Li'l J became mobile.

If you get this, and if you're so inclined as to give a shout, please do so.


Theater in Danger

Hi, all!

The theater where I used to work full-time is in danger of closing. We have an unexpected budgetary shortfall (the specifics are a little complicated, but we thought we would be able to accept funding that it turns out we're not allowed to), and if we don't make up the deficit by Dec. 31, the theater will close.

To this end, in addition to the local asks that our campaign leader is making, a lot of us who love the theater are posting to social media to promote our on-line fundraiser.

Save the State . . . Fund Our Future

Geo and I have missed having fully staged community theater, and the thought of the venue closing permanently makes my heart hurt. I'm currently playing The Charwoman in a production of A Christmas Carol being staged at the theater, and the thought of full-scale community theater losing its venue just as we finish up our first production makes me very sad.

J comes to rehearsals with us quite often, and I'm saddened also by the though of him not having access to the arts.

Please consider, if you can, contributing a little bit to our cause. Every little bit helps, and time is of the essence.

Christmas - snowy tree

A belated Merry Christmas

Hello all who might still be reading this LJ. :-)

A very merry Christmas, happy holiday, and happy New Year to you. I haven't been too prolific of late, but I do stop by and check my f-page on a fairly regular basis.

Baby J had a wonderful first Christmas! His morning was so great that Christmassed himself out and crashed mid-morning. He's an adorable little guy--and he knows it! Hard to believe his first birthday is coming up in just over two weeks!

Geo is doing well and loving his new role as daddy. He also got to present a project he worked on, restoring the silent film Ramona, at MoMA in November.

My work/income situation has become somewhat uncertain; the theater is going dark in January, and I as part time hourly (since Baby J came home) will not be getting any hours probably until March at the earliest (January dark, February programming light). In the hopes of bringing in a little extra spending money, I'm placing some of my crochet items up for sale. I currently have several baby blankets, a "popcorn and cranberry" garland, and a pink ruffle scarf available. If anyone is interested in anything, would like more information, or would like to make a request, please let me know. We can discuss particulars. :-)

I hope everyone is having a grand holiday/end of 2014. May 2015 be joyous for us all!

P.S. I miss you, LJ peeps.

TS draft scripts available

Hey, all.

I know a few of you on my f-list remember TS (The Sentinel, 1996 TV show, starring Richard Burgi, Garrett Maggart, and Bruce A. Young). I was really active in the fandom back in the day, and I was able to collect several copies of the drafts of various episode scripts. After a chaotic weekend in the basement, I've decided that it's time to part with these scripts. We need the room, and with a little one in the family now, and my working almost zero hours at my job (I'm more of a substitute house manager now, only working 1-3 days a month), every extra penny helps.

If anyone here is interested in seeing a list of the scripts and prices, or knows of anyone who might be interested, or knows of any communities this announcement could be posted to, please let me know. I don't imagine the fandom is as active as it used to be, since only one season was ever made available on DVD, and to my knowledge, the show is not gaining new fans with re-runs in syndication. Still, there might be someone who's interested, and any boost of this signal is much appreciated.


Adoption Fundraiser (because the fees aren't over yet)

Greetings, all!

Collapse )

Now . . .

As you might guess from the above narrative, we’ve paid our adoption fees in full to the agency. However, in order to apply for monies we will need for his infant and toddler development therapy, we’re having to go through an additional court hearing, which will incur additional costs (it's all explained on our fundraiser page). We’re asking for help in covering those court costs. Please consider donating to our fundraising project, or listing our project as your charity of choice when you shop at select retailers. We're using Pure Charity for the fundraiser (search using the key word "legal fees"). Money you donate will go directly to the adoption agency (a 501(c)3 non-profit, meaning your donation is tax deductible. Check with your tax advisor). If you'd like the direct link to our fundraiser, please let me know.

Thanks so much!
