I’ve pretty much been ill with a cold and cough since my last post. It’s getting better, but it’s still not gone. So there has been lots of hot apple cinnamon herbal tea with a Mexican cinnamon stick for extra spice. And some OJ and Sprite for the vitamin C. And the first few days, some Alka Seltzer Cold. I did do Wheat Grass Juice on Monday, but it just drained my nose into my chest. Nearly gone though, I shall prevail.

Nearly May, and Mother’s Day and ten years since I graduated from Denison. Our reunion is in June, and right now we’re trying to sort out which of the Betonians are able to come and what we’ll do. So many so far away (we Miss you!) or with brand new babies. Congrats to all the new (or second time) parents! We’ll miss you, too.

Also going to Sage’s release party tomorrow, her book: Love Sucks is being released tomorrow by Musa Publishing. In any eBook format you could possibly want. Congrats Sage!

Rich and I did give in and start playing WoW for real again. I’m almost to 50 pets, and and have 33 mounts. But I’ve gotta learn to play Plants vs Zombies better. Considering rezzing my old account and combining it with my new one, but we’ll see. Might be too much effort. Might not.

Still waiting on contract from Mongoose Publishing. Really excited for the chance to work with them. 🙂 They’re super busy, though, so I’m patient.

This past weekend I went on a trip with friends to Louisville to a little SciFi/Fantasy convention called ConGlomeration. We had a great time. The dealers room had lovely corsets, fun shiny jewelry and loads of games, books and other assorted trinkets. I discovered that Victorian style corsets, with diagonal stays fit my ribs better than the traditional vertical ones. Unfortunately, these all had ruffles. Maybe next time.

As is tradition with this group of friends, we threw a great party on Saturday night for the con-goers. The music was loud, the costumes were great and we didn’t get a single noise complaint. Thanks to a young lady who got promoted for her good work on that front.

Work goes up and down, but mostly boring. Still waiting on an assignment from Mongoose. Health is doing alright, though my diet is fading again. So many dairy and chocolate cravings lately. Can hardly believe it’s almost May.

MarCon was a good time. Not the crazy huge, multi-room party we usually throw, but still, we had a good time. I did have to go straight to work after, but I bribed my way home halfway through my shift by getting a nook Simple Touch with my gift card. Then slept for 8 hours. Easter did not go as planned, what with more sleep being necessary, but we had a decent day of it anyway.

ConGlomeration this weekend in Louisville. That should be even more fun. The whole weekend with friends in a whole new venue.

A sad day today, as we remember and miss our friend.

Well, it’ll be Easter in a couple days anyway… so, Happy Easter!

Got confirmation that Mongoose Publishing does want me to work for them, freelance proofreading. So, that’ll be pretty awesome. 🙂 I should get my first assignment in the next few weeks. Need to read some of their stuff. 😉

Have discovered that coconut milk does not set up in regular pudding mixes, ah well. Still works as a banana dipping sauce. 😉

Going to MarCon for a quick BBC party Friday night. Should be fun, even if I do have to work both Friday and Saturday. Going to another convention next weekend, sans work. That should be more fun.

Getting together with friends on Sunday. All in all, good times ahead.
