Last night we held our charity screening of Serenity in honor of Joss's brithday. We decided to give the proceeds to The Christmas Box House which is a shelter for abused and neglected kids here in SLC. There are a couple more houses around as well. Anyway, we were worried that we weren't going to have a big enough turn out to cover expenses of the theater without Leitha having to take a personal loss but it ended up that we had enough to cover it AND to raise quite a bit for TCBH as well. I'm so happy about that. I'll update when I find out how much we were able to raise.
Things didn't go quite how I'd planned as I was suposed to help with the prizes but another girl kinda honed in and took over without so much as a "by your leave", but she's one of those that crave the spotlight and being the center of attention so she really trived on it. AND if I'd been the one to do it I couldn't have won the Zoe covered comic book for knowing BDM means BIG DAMN MOVIE! *GLEE*
Well, my friend Becky had won just before me and didn't want what she had (cos she doesn't wear necklaces cos she has a baby) and begged me to trade her. Even though Zoe's my girl I have the comics on my puter and decided to trade with her. This is what I got!
It is a pendant that is the symbol for "Brown Coat", I decided to go on the site listed on the box and found out that it is sterling silver and I think it's really SHINY! GET ONE HERE!
Now that I have the basics out Imma crash. Prolly update more later. It was a lot of fun and I met some kewl new people.
OOOOOH! I forgot something important!
The crew for DONE THE IMPOSSIBLE: the Fans' Tale of Firefly and Serenity - a Doctumentary hosted by ADAM BALDWIN was there! I will prolly end up on the cutting room floor but they had a camera and did video of the whole thing! including us all singing the Firefly theme song and Happy Birthday to Joss :-D
We also got to see some of what they have done so far and this is going to be a great thing guys! You should really check it out. A percentage of the proceeds goes to Equality Now. Check it out at DoneTheImpossible/CantStopTheSerenity
HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOSS! and HAPPY SERENITY DAY EVERYONE!
