Had a really good weekend with friends. Good conversations, good food, good fun. Glad to see some folks I hadn’t seen in a while. Relaxing this week. Checking on jobs, but still getting radio silence for the most part. My diploma should be in the mail to me next week. ๐Ÿ™‚ ย Started Listening to As You Wish, Inconceivable Tales from the Making of the Princess Bride, this week, too. Very fun. Started work on my next Tuesday night character, too. We’re doing the MechWarrior setting, so that should be interesting.

Hope everyone has a good weekend celebrating with their loved ones and/or watching Deadpool. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I know some friends are heading up Chicago way for Capricon 36.

Quiet week for me, fighting a cold. No word from my applications, nothing much to apply for. Another round of checking when this is done. Not a bad week, just a quiet one.

Christmas cards/presents have started to arrive – kitchen gear and money for cons. Thank You! So, I’m now officially registered for DeCon, ConCoction, and MarCon in 2016. ๐Ÿ™‚ ย I think some more might be spent on movie tickets – still need to decide when I’m seeing Star Wars.

Things are about to begin. Tonight we help set up for this weekend’s con. Tomorrow we get word back on a job for Rich. Next week, my nephew has another appointment with docs. Week after he turns 7. And I go to my second convention of the year. Week after that, I get to puppy-sit for a weekend again. I’m also pondering joining a writing group, to get me back on track. And at some point I really need to take my Prius in for warranty work.

This past week, not much happened. Aside from the usual, work, eat, sleep, look for jobs. Started reading Fall of Giants by Ken Follett. Interesting piece. Though I’m far more interested in the history than the characters’ sex lives. He’s not too bad about it, just a few places where I looked at it and went, Really? I get that the romances are important to the play, but. Ah well. To each his own.

Okay, that’s all for this week. Take care.

Cedar Point Awesomeness August 2, 2012

Spent the weekend at Cedar Point. Awesome birthday gift! Saturday night we road the wooden coasters. Blue Streak, Gemini, Mean Streak, Mine Ride and then we double dipped on the Millennium Force to end the night on a high note. Sunday, we were only going to be in the park for six hours, owing to prior commitments, so as a special birthday treat, we got Fast Lane passes. This allowed us to ride all 10 of the coasters we hadn’t yet hit (Dragster twice and Millennium Force again for good measure) and a few auxiliary rides as well: Power Tower up and down, SkyHawk, and WindSeeker. It was also the last day for Disaster Transport, so glad we got to ride it one more time. It was pretty awesome never waiting more than 30 minutes for a ride, and most of the time far less than that. I didn’t even spend too much money on junk food. We all had frozen custard on Saturday night – Wow, Delicious!ย  And then a hotdog and chips for lunch on Sunday. Water was about the only other thing we bought. And thanks to friends with season passes, the tickets were cheap too, and parking was free. Awesome weekend. Thank you!

Birthday gifts and cakes keep trickling in. Thank you everyone for that, too. It’s been a great celebration this year, and lasting longer than most. ๐Ÿ™‚ I love it.ย  And soon to celebrate lots of other family birthdays!

So much coming up, trips, birthdays, conventions, our anniversary. I’m very excited, and working enough hours, we may even be able to afford most of it. ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  Fingers crossed for gas prices around the third weekend of August.
