Martin Landau, Can You Help Me Now?

Another day, another late post. These things happen, at least to me. No matter. I will attempt to write something worth reading, then attempt it again later today so I will be caught up.

Unfortunately I did not take any pictures at the Mind Twist Media Arts and Entertainment Expo yesterday. My friend, Kim and I dressed up and promoted Ilion Little Theatre. There were other vendors there, some musical entertainment, and a magician. Unfortunately, it was not very well attended. However, those who were there enjoyed it. The representative of Mind Twist I talked to said they would probably try for a date in May next year.

After the expo, Kim and I were quite relieved to get out of our costumes and into comfy shorts. We went to Lombardo’s Pizzeria Plus in Ilion, NY, for some food and wine. We split an order of chicken wings and an appetizer sampler. I really should avoid deep-fried food, but as I often observe, I can’t always do the right thing.

Back home, I relaxed with my husband, Steven. We watched Ed Wood. I had been thinking about that movie since I mentioned Martin Landau in my Friday/Saturday post (perhaps you read it).

So this is my Scattered Saturday Post, a day late. I say to myself, “Now that wasn’t so hard, was it? Why didn’t you do it yesterday?” And then, with thanks to S.J. Perelman, I explain, “Shut up.”

Is My Mission to Dress as a Drag Queen?

My mission, if I choose to accept it, is to make a Lame Post Friday post on Friday. This tape will self-destruct… That was my little homage to Mission: Impossible, the TV series with Martin Landau, not the movies, which I have the opposite of desire to see.

And that was as far as I got last night. I bet Martin Landau never chose not to accept his mission. I guess that is where he and I differ.

In any case, here I sit on my couch, etc., etc., and I ain’t got much. Later today, my friend, Kim, and I will participate in the Mind Twist Media Arts and Entertainment Expo in Utica, NY. We will be representing Ilion Little Theatre. I spent part of last night figuring out a costume then un-painting and re-painting my toenails so they will match. I plan to wear my drag queen outfit from Fabulous and Fatal, that murder mystery we presented to benefit the Herkimer County Historical Society a few years ago.

I don’t know much about Mind Twist Media or the expo, but I copied the following from the Facebook Event: Artists and entertainers from all over Central New York meet to showcase their art. There will be tattoo artists, tarot readers, cosplayers, authors, film makers, musicians, food trucks, vendors, live glass blowing and chainsaw art demonstrations. Cosplay contest at 4:00, Adults and children’s categories.

The event will take place at 220 Memorial Parkway, Utica, NY, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $5, but FREE if you come in costume!

So my blog post veered from lame to plugging a local event. I find that appropriate for a post that started on Friday and ended on Saturday.
