Hey Everybody!!!!! [Oct. 25th, 2005|03:38 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
We took smallgirl and Flash back up to the airport yesterday =( It was so much fun having them here! Thank you guys so much for visiting us!

Thank you all for your good wishes about Hurricane Wilma! Luckily, it was no big deal for us here in Celebration. To be honest, if nobody told me a hurricane was coming I would have just thought it was a rainstorm. It was pretty windy though, but we didn't lose any branches or anything like that. Our neighbors didn't even bother taking down their Halloween decorations and they are all still there, lol. Thank goodness! We even ate at an outdoor cafe with Alex & Flash for lunch that same day after it was over, lol. (It was really tasty too, it was at Cafe d'Antonio's - I had the Involtini di Melanzane and it was SO GOOD!).

I hope all is well! I've tried checking in on LJ and attempted keeping up this week, but I apologize if I haven't had much of an online presence this past week. I'm easing my way back in, and will try attacking this monstrous pile of emails soon.

Oh my - I have sold out the THIRD shipment of my book already, believe it or not. Orders placed right now will be from the shipment arriving (to me, before I sign & ship to you!) around November 11th. Thank you all so much for your support, I appreciate it immensely - I had no idea I'd sell so many of them!

BUT for those of you who want a book without waiting, or at least want it in time for Christmas, some stores have it in stock already! If you are in a rush, buy one from efairies.com instead here:

http://www.efairies.com/1599260409.htm (don't feel bad about ordering from places other than from me, seriously! I get royalties either way! ;))

I finished up another big commissioned painting - yay!

I'm so happy right now - we're going to go see NINE INCH NAILS (my favourite band) tonight! I can't believe it! I've seen them before and it is always such a great show. I hope they play some of the new songs off of "With Teeth" - I've yet to see any of that live, so that would be awesome.

So no new painting tonight, lol. I've got some awesome ones lined up though, I promise!

Halloween is coming up! Me, Matt, my sister Amber & her husband Chris are dressing up as the characters from the movie "Conan the Barbarian", it's going to be awesome. We're all making our own costumes. Matt of course is going as Conan, Amber is going as Valeria (the main girl/valkyrie in the movie), Chris is going as Subotai (and has even grown a little beard/mustache thing just in preparation), and I am going as the witch who makes love to Conan before he throws her in the fire. Lol, there aren't a lot of female characters in that movie, obviously. YES I will try to post pictures, hehe. The others are specifically dressing up like the characters in the part of the movie when they are all with the camouflage makeup and are infiltrating Thulsa Doom's temple, in case you were wondering. The witch however, just has that one scene, lol, so I'm making a crude fur (FAKE fur, obviously, I'm a veggie-girl after all) skimpy outfit. Just that and some extra eyeliner, lol, I've already got the hair =P

Sorry to nerd up everybody's posts with my Conan-talk! Around my house, we end up watching that movie about once a week. And thanks to crypticvitality & her husband, we even have the soundtrack!

I'd better run - I should probably eat something before the concert. Those of you who know me know how I tend to faint inexplicably at concerts during inopportune times, and I want to avoid that as much as possible!

New art soon, I promise ;)

Have fun. Fainting is bad--I hope it doesn't happen tonight.
I'm glad you got through safely--the path they showed on the news did show it going through the southern part of the state.

We had a great time! We bought actual SEATS this time instead of floor/mosh tickets, so I kept my head about me, lol.

Glad you made it through the Hurricane without any problems. Had you in my thoughts. :) Have a great time at the NIN concert! We went to the Seether & Audioslave concert a few weeks ago. It was great! Chris Cornell has such a great voice!! Anyways, I know you are busy. Good Luck on not fainting!:) Take care!

Have fun at the NIN concert and don't faint!!! John and his mother and I may go catch them when they come around to Dallas, if they haven't already made it through. I know we were considering them a while back. Lol

Also, if Billy Idol comes around go see him! I saw him last friday and man, he puts on a show! I couldn't believe he was 50!!

Re: hey

Hi Laura!

How neat! I'd like to see your costume!

I'm dressing up as the witch who lives in that cave - she's only in the first part of the movie, but there are only 2 real female roles in that film, so I didn't have a lot of choice, lol.

You are so pretty, and I love your icon! I have to learn how to make ones like that, I think.

And look at you with a book and all! You're famous, Jasmine!

I just sent the link to my husband, I want it for christmas!

Enjoy the NIN concert and scream real loud for me! And if you meet Trent, tell him to email me! Hehehe.

Thank you Heather! We had a great time! We had tickets for actual seats instead of getting crushed/trampled on the floor, so I think that helped me, lol.
