P.S. Send some of that hot weather my way, will you? It snowed here in Illinois yesterday, and it's supposed to get frigidly cold all week (below zero Fahrenheit). *shudder*
Have you had the opportunity to see any of TJ's other work? What is your favorite thing about the program Bones, thus far in your viewing? What episode are you up to?
As for finding Validation on DVD, I don't believe it's available yet. (Which is probably normal for 'short film' formats... doesn't reach mass market immediately.) I think many of us would be more than happy to buy a copy, so hopefully they're working on it. Definitely keep checking in here on the site, especially with Steph (our moderator here on the forums) and Sharon (who's helping out with the technical side of things on this site) -- I'm sure they'll post a message from TJ about it as soon as it is available. Or you never know, TJ might come on and post a message about it himself! He's been known to stop by and write a quick note when we least expect it, which is always fun and surprising.
"Just a couple of short stories"? Hey, Rhi, I say whether it's one story or twenty or one hundred, published is published. Good for you! As someone who dabbles in writing (and would love to expand that to publication), I think you're inspiring.

Oh - and I am a nerd.
So, does your writing focus on a specific genre or is your style more general? Would we be able to read any of your work? Were your stories published in Australia only, or possibly in a worldwide publication we may be able to access?
P.S. Nerds are cool.
Just ask Jack Hodgins. Or, is he more of a geek than a nerd? *GRIN*
Either way, we love him here, and we're glad you've joined us! Visit the various threads and jump in on the conversations. We'd love to hear your point of view. And as always, if you have any questions about the site or the forum or anything, don't hesitate to ask. There are so many lovely people here, all willing to help.
Wow!! What a welcome!
In terms of my writing, I like to think I am witty. But I can post my publish story on here for y'all if you want to read it! It's like a modern day Red Riding Hood.
In terms of TJ's work, well I saw Erin Brockovich, a couple of the commercials (all youtube, we don't get a lot of US ads), Friends Validation and Bones. I am really into the Theatre Junkie type of stuff, I find it to be more.. validating (ha. I crack em up) and rewarding to watch. I am not going to deny that I am not a lover on Bones though, I have to admit - I love the show and I love the many levels of the characters. It just... makes me feel at ease when I watch it!
Bones, I am finished Season... 2. I know! What a disgrace! Our TV is a bit crap here. I mean in terms of there isn't a lot of variety (free to air) and the cable television can only work with what they can. So free to air, have rights to Bones and honestly, have no idea when it plays! But I have been watching it religiously on Cable and purchased Season 2 on DVD. But I wiki-ed all the episodes and I know sort of whats going on.
Oh btw - todays temperature was: 39 degrees celicius. I believe that's like 102.2 farenheit?
Either way, it was darn hot today!
*spreads good vibes to all*
And welcome to Stephanie who walked in after me!
