I think I've finally recovered from my summer of intense fun, and now it's on with the show.

Dragon*Con was tons of fun. Costumes were a hit, Pride & Prejudice & zombies was the best. It was so much fun to be a zombie. The Yule Ball was killer, seeing lilacwire in her Kaylee layer cake dress was outstanding. The fun never ended. Met some new people, created many a new in-joke. Got my registration already for next year.

It was announced just the other day that the HP theme park was officially opening spring 2010. And also that Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides was due for release in 2011!

Also, work at the new Joann's location nearly killed me. Literally. I hurt my wrist and woke up this morning with a dangerous fever. Mom thought I had swine flu. Damn her nurse logic. So for today, I'm taking a break and hoping my hard working aches and pains go away soon.

Your wrist hurts? Must be the pig flu, get thee away!

the wrist is better, but I'm still keeping it wrapped up. Just got back from the Dr and he says I have neither swine nor regular flu. So it's probably just from overworking myself yesterday.

There's speculation that On Stranger Tides is going to be based on the book by Tim Powers with the same name. I actually have the book (haven't gotten to reading it yet though). I picked it up a couple of years ago at a book sale. Though they would have to weave their own Jack Sparrow plot into it and change tons of things, but there is a Will Turner type character in it (who is actually married to a woman named Elizabeth), an undead pirate crew, and the Fountain of Youth. ...and oddly enough Blackbeard. hmm... now I definitely have to get on to reading it. As I was flipping through it hit me they could just change the Blackbeard character into Sparrow.

I read something about that, that there was a book with a similar title. But it's already been confirmed that Will and Elizabeth aren't coming back. Just Jack and Barbossa. And if they bring in Blackbeard for the new bad guy, I will be super psyched. The Fountain of Youth would bring the end of the 3rd film smoothly into the 4th film, so that would be neat too. But what I'm hoping for is, now that Elizabeth's temptations on Jack are gone, he needs a few more women to schmoozle. I hope they decide to bring in Mary Reed and Anne Bonny! There needs to be some female pirates!
