Matt’s home!!!!! I’m so excited At LAX, there were a ton of paparazzi hanging around the international arrival gate – David Beckham was supposedly arriving. Also, Eric Dane (from “Gray’s Anatomy”) and Rebecca Gayheart (from “Dead Like Me”) got off while I was waiting. I didn’t recognize them, because they were wearing sunglasses and scarves and things, but jillions of flashbulbs went off and people were following them around. Then Matt came out and I hurled myself into his arms and it was all very cute-ness, once he figured out that the blurry ball of redhead bouncing at him was me and that I would indeed stop just before knocking him over at full speed. I am soooooo happy he’s back.
We’re staying in a trailer on the property where Fezzik is being boarded, so that’s exciting. It’s a farther drive to work for me, but it’s slightly more practical for two people and we get to spend time with Fez. We have a camera now (not just my crummy, fuzzy, pixelated phone camera) so I will try to post pics and video of Matt, Fez, and the area we’re staying. Work changed their mind about using Fez in a commercial (this is the third time they have asked me to participate in a commercial and then backed out, so I don’t think I’ll say “yes” next time). This means I just get to relax and spend time with him now instead of trying to get him to do things for the camera, which is something of a relief.
Spending the next three months fundraising; ideally, we’d like to purchase our house right before Matt has to head back to Scotland (he has to return every 90 days due to visa waiver reasons, and stay for a week or two before returning). That way I could move in, get things settled and all, and then he could come back the next time to a real, legitimate home for us. So, my retail site should be going up soon. Besides my very cool vintage clothing collection, we may also be looking into selling vintage books, as well as the trailer and my car. So, if you need/want any of these things, they will soon be available. We are currently building my new website and I’ll post linking to it hopefully sometime this week once I’ve got it a bit more established and polished
Also, I’m very excited about all the discussion going on over at Matt’s site, Homeless Tales. There are several new authors and comments have really picked up lately. People are having some really thought-provoking ideas and, even when they don’t agree, some really respectful and healthy debate, which is awesome. It’s so great to see so many homeless and formerly homeless individuals from such varied backgrounds and perspectives coming up with plans and approaches with which to combat the problem. Please go check out the new articles there – I was blown away by the depth and preparation that obviously went into each of them.
