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.

Spring Rains April 29, 2011

The weather has been crazy. Rain and wind and storming all over the place. Massive damage down south, but only minor damage around here. I love spring storms. Listening to them, walking in them, reveling in them. I missed them so much when I lived in Boise. Something about washing away the dullness of winter and bringing everything back to life again. It fills me with happiness and energy. And, as noted last week, the spring cleaning bug.

I always use cleaning to procrastinate, but in spring, it gets crazy. Cleaning closets and emptying drawers, getting rid of the old to make space for the new. When money allows, buying new – new clothes is an odd new fad for me. Hurray for Ohio Thrift end of the month sales. Still ought to get a new pair of work pants. I’ve also got the moving bug this year, I want more space. So, I look around and think packing on top of cleaning.

A quiet week for me. Relaxing and writing cleaning. Exciting things coming up, though. Conventions and a wedding. Rich starts his new job officially on Monday. A regular schedule again at last.

Cleaning beckons, and I’m away.

Getting Ready to Relax January 13, 2011

First convention of the year this weekend. Spent the day doing the last of the shopping to get ready for it. I am still short proper footwear for the wedding, but everything else is in place. One weekend of relaxing and hanging out with my friends to commence at noon tomorrow when I get off work. Zag days for January to commence with dinner tomorrow evening. Very much looking forward to this. The holidays are over, work is back to normal, and time to celebrate with friends.

Things are going well at work. Bookup had a good holiday season as well. Not a whole lot going on web-wise for me lately, but I’m still working on it.

Health is pretty good. I got a new cookbook with big acid/alkaline charts. So, that helps, though a lot of the recipes involve cheese for some reason. There areĀ  a lot of good ideas and new information in it.

I got a couple rejection letters last week for the stories I sent out. Looking at doing some more submitting soon. Not a lot of time to write, but I’ve had a few ideas and I’ve been reading more lately.

This is kind of scattered. I’m tired and ready for the weekend. More next week.
