My presentation went well. GenCon was packed with fun, games, art, and people. The live show was amazing. My games were fun, we even made friends with the monster in the Cthulhu game.

WorldCon was also a great time. I met all the authors I planned to and a few more. I got books signed, played games, and made new friends. I met The Library Bards and got a picture with them and a signed one of them. I went to panels and concerts and even danced one night away.

Dublin, Edinburgh, Loch Lomond, Glasgow, London, and Bristol made for a very busy sightseeing trip. I saw lots of castles, cathedrals, cemeteries/crypts, buildings, and monuments of all shapes and sizes. Photos will be forthcoming when they are edited and organized.

Back to work this first week of the semester has been a rough transition, but we survived. I caught up on email, and trade mags, and organized the next run of our Research Guide awareness campaign. Next week it’s right back into the swing of welcome fairs and teaching information literacy.

Over vacation I read a Lot of Comics. From Jessica Jones to Ms Marvel to DIE to Locke and Key to Killmonger to Mister Miracle and probably a few more I am forgetting. I finished listening to Fated by Benedict Jacka and will be starting Cursed soon.

Looking forward to football and Ohio Renaissance festival starting this weekend!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day March 17, 2011

I really do need to get back to Ireland some day. Preferably during one of the many gaming conventions, most preferably, during WARPCon. But not just for the fun and silliness of gaming and raising a glass with old friends. I really didn’t get to see much of the country last time because I was a student. We did do a bit of rambling, thank you Brian and Brian, but there is still more I want to see. England, too for that matter, I only saw a university campus when I was there last time. Some day. 🙂

On the idea of goals and dreams, I sent in my resume to WOTC for freelance editing, just in case they’re looking for any. They’re putting out a lot of material these days, I figured it was worth a shot. Especially as I now have experience in the field, unlike last time I applied, straight out of college.  I also put my name in the hat for a web design opportunity through a friend. We’ll see if anything comes of that. Excited about finding new opportunities, anyway.

Had a zag this past weekend celebrating with friends in Cleveland for the 25th anniversary of their ship. Trying to be good until April now. At least mostly good. Supplementing boredom with fruit, I’ve got bananas and cuties on the shelf now. Looking at a blender for smoothies, but I don’t have money for that right now.

One of the offices that my records show us owing money to, called us back and left a message to say they owed Us money instead and are sending us a check. I tried to call them back today, but after over an hour on hold I had to go to work. Maybe they’ll send a statement with the check. I don’t want to look a gift horse in the mouth, but I also don’t want to turn around and get bitten in the butt by it. Really want to get these debts taken care of, but must have a massive change in income to do that. We are working on that as best we can, though. Prayers, good thoughts and any contacts or leads would be appreciated. 😉
