A Week Without Work

Monday, June 30th, 2008

I took the day off today as well. HA! And as it is also the day after Origins I planned to do NOTHING the whole day. HA^2! Sadly TheMan had to work today so I was out a loafing companion which would have made the day perfect.

Origins ’08: In Conclusion

Sunday, June 29th, 2008

Man, Sunday at the con sorta sucks because you gotta spend the morning getting ready and out by 11 and then what? Hang around and play games while your luggage chills in the car? Plus everyone and their brother has to check out before 11 too so there are never any wheelie carts and the front desk is swamped and RESOUNDING MEH!!! Although we have been using our kidneys these past few years and have wheelie stackable luggage and a wheelie cooler that can be dragged along. With stuff stacked on top of it. We’ve gotten pretty mobile (after spending two or three years waiting hours for a luggage cart) but we still have to get rolling (hee!) and out by 11.

Our rather surprising view from the hotel window. I guess the Drury is a giant block of a hotel with an inner court yard thing. Huh!

Random Posting Post

Friday, June 20th, 2008

Dangnabbit. I lost another I’ve-always-posted-this-day day in May. That makes two so far that I’ve blown off and the year isn’t even half over. I only had 45 of them to begin with and now I’m down two. Hrumph. It’s not like it’s that hard to remember either because I made a behind-the-scenes post with them all listed out so I can go and look at the months and see when I need to post. But no. Alas. I will miss you, May 28th as you slip from the exalted (but dwindling) ranks of Days Posted Every Single Year.

On the other hand, no pressure next year to post on the 28th either. Hmmmm.

First Harvest of ’08

Wednesday, June 18th, 2008

Strawberries! From my garden! Which isn’t yet weeded thoroughly so getting to the strawberries was a bit of a challenge. Still, they are growing and prospering and darned fine strawberryific. I had them cut up in my yogurt parfait snack.

Summer Illin

Friday night, LunarGeography and I wrocked the ballot boxing and got almost all the ballot packs done. We ran out of baggies around 300 or 400 ballots (I forget, it’s all a blur) but we counted out 20 sheet paper bunches so when we do get bags we can just throw them in and be done with it. Note to self: Add baggies to the shopping list. It took much longer to count out ballot packs than I had anticipated but LG graciously shared her beer so the time went by pretty quickly. TheMan stayed home and boogered about trying to vanquish the dishes and whatnot.

Today Isaak turns 13 on Friday the 13th. His lucky day? Not if you judge by what presents he’s gotten so far. I didn’t even give them their morning scritchies today (what’s THAT about? Bad cat mom indeed) and Mother Nature looks like she’s brewing up a storm for him later on this morning. Isaak hates storms.
