Spent the 4th of July in downtown Austin with a bunch of Australians and a couple of Canadians.
Worked my butt off at RTX as a Guardian Team Lead. Loved every minute of it.
Put on a hell of a show, got lots of hugs from Staff, Cast, and Community.
Got a real thrill when Staff/Crew called me by my real name and not my site handle. Burnie not only hugged me, but also took me by the hand, looked me in the eye, and NO BULLSHIT thanked me sincerely for my hard work. I haven’t been thanked like that by someone who isn’t my husband since college. I made Gus laugh during the stressful times, Shannon McCormmick was SURE that he knew me from somewhere, John Marshall Reed thought I worked for Rooster Teeth, and made fast friends with David and Miles. I got to hug Ray a dozen times.
My husband was PRAISED MULTIPLE TIMES on the Rooster Teeth site and in person by Staff/Crew and got a Featured User spot for his hard work. Chris kicks a lot of ass…and here he thought he was just riding my coattails. I’m super proud of him!
Worked SideQuest as well…rarely paid for a drink.
Sold my silent auction pieces for a total of $260
Went to the open house at The Fort and formally met Geoff Ramsey’s mother. The Fort is AMAZING. Photos don’t do that place and the artwork justice. I’m so thrilled for Griffon!
Was part of another Rooster Teeth live action production. WHY AM I ALWAYS KILLED IN THESE THINGS? I demanded a living role with lines
and a kissing scene with Matt Hullum for next year. (Hardy har har not really. I’ll play a fence post if it means being in another RT film!)
Finally met JengaShip. I’ve been podcasting with him for 2 years….
Got a huge amount of praise from JessKid Jesse Cowell.
Went and hung out at Rooster Teeth headquarters after Matt and Burnie invited me.
Helped Miles with Episode 9
David gave us a tour of the annex. Met Joe the Cat and Pongo.
Brandon showed us film from the Sunday morning shoot…HOLY SHIT. JOEL HEYMAN MUSCULARLY DESTROYS ME WITH HIS DRAMATIC ACTING ABILITY. Seriously. I’m getting goosebumps just remembering it…
Was stranded at RT Headquarters on account of massive thunderstorm. Drank lots of their beer.
Watched my husband massage Barbara’s shoulders. BOW CHICKA BOW WOW
and that was just the Texas portion of our trip.
Photos and stuff later. I’m drunk, tired, and so very happy to be home.
…but I do miss Austin. What a terrific city.
