"the monster within idea"

Happy birthday to bouncybabylemur and fungus_files. May both of you fantastic ladies have terrific days and wonderful years to come!

For those of you in/near Charlotte, North Carolina, be sure to check out the events planned for the forthcoming American Zombie: George A. Romero's Film Revolution celebration. We'll definitely be attending the opening night screening of Night of the Living Dead followed by the Q&A Session with George A. Romero. What a great way to mark the film's fortieth anniversary! The fact it will be held in a historic church will make it all the more "morbid and creepifying," methinks. I can't wait.


"I also have always liked the monster within idea. I like the zombies being us."
George A. Romero

You're icon is great!
Hi, dear. I'm not too into zombies, but that is a classic movie, and I would love an excuse (and I'm sure I speak for Gina also) to see you again soon...well, in Sept....You are, after all, the most beautiful woman in the world (according to the slightly drunk and overly confident moderator from the Goth session--can't remember his name :))

I hope that you're enjoying your summer. It didn't sound like you had much of a break coming.

By the way, Gina and I went to an Italian restaurant last weekend and had an authentic Italian waiter (he was quite nice looking also...he reminded me of Daniel Craig, the new 007). Hearing him, got Gina reminiscing about the adorable Gisueppe (sp?) whom I've never met. We also chuckled about the "Hello, I am Giuseppe" greeting he would say when he called you. :)

Hugs,
Lisa

Re: You're icon is great!
ROFLOL! Your reply has made my day, Lisa.

It would be so much fun to see you at the Night of the Living Dead event! I think it's a once in a lifetime kind of opportunity to see living film history, especially since Romero will take Q&A after the viewing. I really hope you and Gina can come! It's general seating, so we'd be able to sit together and everything. I'd love to see you again - sooner, rather than later! And neither of you has met my husband yet, either, so that would be lovely.

I hope all is going well with you, my friend! :)

Thanks. As soon as Gina's back in town, we'll start planning that weekend.

Thank you, thank you, you lovely dedicated soul! *hugs* I've been MIA on LJ - one never knows when the sucky black hole of deadlines will strike, eh?

Lovely to hear that the wedding went well, and that you acquitted yourself without the need to depend on a Rupert-Everett-esque best friend... :P

Oh, and SO JEALOUS of the zombie anniversary you're attending. May it be replete with shuffly hordes and sloughs of skin...

LOL! Your icon is sooooo appropriate. I can't believe Romero will be there - how perfect is that? I know you'll be there in spirit. Grrrr, arrrrgh!

I hope you had an excellent day, my friend.

And thanks for your kind words re: the wedding. No Rupert Everett required! LOL.
