Rollercoaster much?

On Saturday, Witchfinder had a couldn't-be-better hometown screening at Mosaic World Film Festival. People gasped and meeped and generally responded appropriately in all the right places, and we took home the award for Best Narrative Film (one of five categories). \o/

On Sunday, I served cake, pie, and ice cream at the local Izaak Walton League's annual ice cream social, and chatted primarily with a lovely older lady who's been attending my erstwhile voice teacher's various enterprises pretty much since she moved to Elgin. I came home just in time for the announcement of a Twelfth Doctor who wouldn't have been my first choice, but whom I like a great deal and whose spin on the character I'm looking forward to seeing, and capped off the evening with some truly scrumptious grilled goodies chez havocthecat, with bonus deire visitation.

All in all, a terrific weekend, and very glad of that, because...

Yesterday, I got on a Metra train and shlepped down to the Daley Center for jury duty, where I was selected for a civil suit involving a customer claiming negligence against a business for personal injury. At this point in time, all I really want to say is that I'm glad to have had the experience, but can't entirely recommend it. (Also, one thing everyone in that room agreed on was that whatever the imperfections of the legal system, we were ultimately there because of the serious imperfections of a profit-driven healthcare system.)

Today, I still felt like my brain was completely wrung out, and I tackled Office of Doom catchup with an all-day headache. :-P

Tonight I am doing very little productive, and looking for a fresh start tomorrow.

It sounds like you had more ups than downs overall. Hurrah for Witchfinder winning an award!
