First, I need to thank [livejournal.com profile] gatorgrrrl for the box of chocolates and [livejournal.com profile] layne67 for the cute and cuddly gopher. I'm always a little bit mystified at the amount of cuteness that manages to end up on my profile page despite the fact that I hardly post anymore. *hugs*

And I wish I had a Con report to post, but I haven't written it yet for the same reason that I haven't replied to comments on the picture post. I seem to have picked up a flu bug on the way back from California and have been flat out on my couch for the last 48 hours. I have to work tonight, so I'm hobbling around this morning just to see if I actually can, but nothing involving thinking or creativity has transpired inside my brain since Tuesday. Sorry for that. I do have a report started.

I would like to share one little teaser, though.

As you might know, the Friday night concert at the con was, once again, the Brian Buckley Band, which has gotten mixed reviews. I'm not going to make any judgment on them since I haven't heard them, but I do get the feeling people only went to that in order to see Jared and Genevieve. I guess that's as good a reason as any.

A few of us used the opportunity to get away from the hotel and venture out into Hollywood. Louden Swain was playing at the Viper Room. For those of you who don't know, (which is probably only me until last week, LOL) Louden Swain is Rob Benedict (aka the Prophet Chuck) and his band. They posted on their website that they'd be playing the Viper Room on Friday, so a few of us made the trip. I had never heard Louden Swain and wasn't sure I'd like them, but hey, it was a chance to see the Viper Room. As it turns out, the Viper Room is just a really small room painted black with a mirrorball, a stage, and a bar. All the tables had 'reserved' signs on them, and man did my feet hurt from standing the whole time, but the music was awesome. Afterward, we hung around outside on the street while the band packed up (we were parked right behind them) and waited for the meter to expire, because, you know, gotta get your money's worth out of those parking meters, LOL. Mostly it was just the people we rode with and a few other ladies from the convention kinda talking with band and with Rob, and my friend and I kinda hung on the outskirts, since we don't really do the fangirling thing, but just as we were about to get into the car, Rob came over and gave us both a big hug and thanked us profusely for coming all the way out there to see him. At which point, of course, I told him it was worth it and that I really enjoyed it. I was a little surprised he did that, since I wasn't even sure he knew we were there to see him, but I guess he saw us getting into the car with our friends and put two and two together that we came from the convention.

Anyway, I couldn't buy any of their CDs or t-shirts or anything, because I had absolutely no room in my bag for one more thing. However, when I got home, I hunted down their website and found out you can get all the CDs, a t-shirt, and an autographed picture for 50 dollars. I'd say it's totally worth it, and their most recent CD is streaming on the website if you want to sample before you buy.

Here's the link: http://www.loudenswain.com/

If nothing else, the lyrics should make you smile.

And this has been my public service announcement. That and, get your flu shots, childrens.

I guess this is proof of life. I'm working on a writeup, but I wanted the pics in a separate post so I can eventually lock them without locking the writeup.

Piccies behind here. Some are big, and some are scary. You've been warned )

I imagine someone has posted this by now, but just in case. This is the vid that Jensen mentioned in LA. Some nudity, so watch at your own discretion.
