Been Busy!

So a few weeks ago was Family Guy's 100th episode party at the Social in Hollywood. It was a media frenzy. You could hardly move around. Except for the dining area where you could relax and eat some amazing food. I couldn't stop eating this curried spinach and sweet potato salad. You can see a picture of some of the voice actors of the show in the pic with the huge cake. And a pic of Mark and I all gussied.

I went to the costume contest at Family Guy too. Here are a couple of pics from that. Mark is the Emperor, who is standing next to Mic who is a deranged tooth fairy, I think. And then Jeff as Marvin the Martian. He made that costume. So amazing.

I have no pics, but we went to Disneyland last weekend too. After eight hours my body had enough of being shaken, twirled, and propelled. The most mind-blowing part was seeing all the work and artistry and money that went into making that place. Seeing all those adorable, thrilled kids was a treat. There were anly 2 or 3 screamy or whiney ones the whole day!

The other night we went to see The Nightmare Before Christmas in 3D with our friends Laurel, Paul, Annie, and Eric. It gave me a little headache, but it was so worth it.

I also started teaching a small class in oil painting in the new dining room studio in the apt. on Saturdays. I can't wait every week! Makes me feel good.

Well, that's pretty much it. Now Thanksgiving to plan!

I've been wondering if the strike is affecting you. At first I thought that the animated shows weren't involved at all, but then I read that Seth McFarland is quite vigorously on the writer's side and was making waves. Everything OK?

Hi Amy!!
Unfortunately, yes. Fox could shut the show down any day and Mark would be out of work until the strike is over. Most animated shows have guild writers. Since I live in the haert of the studios, I see picketers every day.
