Had a great weekend with my friends at MARCon this past weekend. We hosted our usual excellent party, with red and blue of tastiness. The music was great and the dancefloor stayed full all night. Thanks to all who made the party possible and kept it running smoothly.

Easter, I spent exhausted, and bored. I worked my first Sunday in over three years, and the place was dead, due to the rest of the mall being closed. But we carried on, and when I got home, it wasn’t too late to call my parents and wish them a Happy Easter, and Mom a Happy Birthday. And, thanks to some friends, I had a brand new (to me) bed to sleep in that night, too.

I am doing a bit more work on that “take care of me” thing, and bought a bunch of veggies this week. Even made and ate the Kale with Peanut Sauce (almond, really). And I have stuff for stir fry and stew. Making veggies and rice as I type, today.

This weekend will be for relaxing. As fleet heads to Kentucky for ConGlomeration, I am staying behind to puppy-sit. Such a cute, cuddly puppy, who could resist? Hoping to also get some writing done, but may just cuddle and sleep.

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.
