The Plot Bunny has returned, been captured, and I've sequestered him securely in the Hutch.

We went to see Kung Fu Panda and Prince Caspian last night at the drive-in, and a character in PC said something about "fairy tales," and that brought it back.

This makes me unreasonably happy. I don't know if I'll be able to actually, you know, do anything with it, but at least I have the Bunny and I can mull it over until I have Plot.

So, I went to...

The MountainCon ConComm meeting today. Much discussion of publicity was had. Consider this me, blogging about it. Because I'm going to be there, on panels, and we've got shiny shiny guests as well. Consider:

Kevin Sorbo, of Hercules, Xena, and Andromeda fame.

Brandon Sanderson, aka mistborn, who's been pegged to write the 12th and final "Wheel of Time" novel, since Robert Jordan passed away before he could finish it.

Herb Jefferson, Jr., who played Boomer in the original BSG.

I'll probably be hitting the publicity on this one fairly frequently, because we want it to be awesome, yo. Anyone considering coming totally should. I've got a banner on my userinfo page page now.

In other news, I came home to find an ARC of "The Betrayal: The Lost Life of Jesus (a novel)" in my mailbox today, courtesy of ... someone at TOR. No note or anything, just a book in a bubble envelope. It was kind of surreal. But, hey! Free book! I'm not going to complain.

Unless it's crap. In which case I will, loudly. Because you don't mess with my faith, man.

In other other news, as some of you may have seen this morning, we went and saw "Kung Fu Panda" at the drive-in last night, double-featured with "Prince Caspian." Without spoiling either of them, let me just say that I was kind of disappointed in KFP and loved PC. KFP's characters were pretty paper-thin, and so was the story. The animation, however, is gorgeous, enough so that I kind of wish we'd seen it in a "real" theater rather than the drive-in, because you lose a lot of detail at an outdoor theater. It's just not dark enough. OTOH, I loved PC and hope they make the other five books into movies so I can have a shiny shiny boxed set.
