Me birfday

Mutterings continued.

And what a good couple of days I've had. Never one to do things by halves, me birfday has been spread over two days. Yesterday I went out to lunch with some of the gels from work (Secret Garden, had the chicken Caesar salad) and last night dined with TUS at Hungry Hippos (aka Hippo Creek) in Scarb. Rob had the assegai (he took a photo of it with my phone but it didn't turn out very clear, so we will just have to go back with a camera and do a better job), Leece and Steveg had the mixed grill and Ros, Maureen and I had the sausages with veg. Wonderful!

And I've scored some lovely booty, far too much to detail here. And adding to it all, the weather cooled down nicely and it even rained yesterday. My car is filthy but WHO CARES!?

Today has been much quieter - I'm off to rehearsals shortly, laden down with props and a hessian sack full of ivy for the costumer.

Just read this - "Babylon 5's Katsulas Dies

Andreas Katsulas, the character actor known to SF fans as G'Kar on Babylon 5 and a familiar face from Star Trek and other SF&F TV shows, died Feb. 13 of lung cancer in Los Angeles, his agent, Donna Massetti, confirmed to SCI FI Wire. He was 59.

Katsulas, a longtime resident of Los Angeles, played the Narn ambassador G'Kar for five years in the syndicated cult TV series Babylon 5, starting in 1993. He reprised the role in subsequent Babylon 5 telefilms.

Katsulas was also no stranger to Trek fans, playing Romulan Cmdr. Tomalak in Star Trek: The Next Generation. His last appearance in a Trek series was as a Vissian captain on an episode of Enterprise.

Born in St. Louis, Katsulas held a master's degree in theater from Indiana University, his official Web site said. After performing in plays in St. Louis, New York and Boston, he went on to film roles in such movies as Michael Cimino's The Sicilian, which brought him to Los Angeles, then in Ridley Scott's Someone to Watch Over Me and Blake Edward's Sunset.

Katsulas moved to Los Angeles permanently in 1986 and found scores of television and film parts in everything from TV's Alien Nation and Max Headroom to the big screen's The Fugitive, in which he played the infamous one-armed man, and Executive Decision opposite Kurt Russell and Steven Seagal. " Fuck!

Not a happy note to end on, I'm afraid.
