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.

So Much to be Thankful for December 1, 2011

Last week, I had three Thanksgiving pot luck dinners with three groups of friends. I have such a great chosen family down here, it’s wonderful. On the weekend, I went to a Thanksgiving party (also potluck) with even more friends. There were over 90 of us there and plenty of people helped set up and clean up. An excellent time, celebrating a season of harvest and gratitude.

Sunday, I helped two friends move in with two other friends. The support we all give each other is amazing. Rich and I have always managed to find our next place to live without hassle, but I can’t even count the number of times my friends have gathered to help people out in emergency (and non-emergency) moves this year.

Rich and I also went to the new Muppet movie for Thanksgiving. It was cute and fun, with the theme of: life is great with people you care about beside you. And it is true. My life is so much better for everyone in it.
