  • Sat, 02:01: Arrived safely. It's a bit damp and mushy but it's already clearing up because I heard Pennsic this year will be dry, sunny, and pleasant. 😁

Turning 50

I think my birthday celebrations are finally over.

Spent my actual birthday weekend in DC. Friday night was spent gaming with friends (of course), then Saturday night I went out carousing with my friend Clint, and got my birthday wish of seeing a stripper I actually thought was hot. :) Sunday I went to the National Portrait Gallery for the first time, and I took off Monday (my actual birthday) and went to the National Archives Museum, also for the first time, and then took an extra day off Tuesday just 'cause. :)

Later that week I got my first tattoo to celebrate, had an unexpected day off from work on Friday, and then that weekend friends took me to an escape room, lunch, and board gaming on Saturday, and then a bunch of us went to the Maryland Ren Faire on Sunday for more fun and frivolity.

Finally last weekend I went home to Philadelphia and Mom put together a great party for me on Saturday with food, family, friends, and board games, and then on Sunday we all went to see my great-niece's christening.

I got a few nice gifts, including a couple of new board games and money (to buy more board games). But the best part was to be surrounded by people I like. :) Thanks to everyone who joined me and sent their good wishes! <3

Crappy day of days

My day today consisted of:

* Waking up to an unwelcome surprise new shower head;
* Confirming my car tire has sprung a slow leak;
* Panicking because my car almost didn't start;
* Fighting with a co-worker who can't keep her nose out of other people's responsibilities;
* Arguing with friends over how to do important things;
* Totally forgetting about and missing an appointment to find out if I need to buy all new tires or if I can fix the leaking one and limp along for a few more paychecks;
* Spending money I don't have to buy a new car battery;
* Having the cat projectile vomit all over my comforter;
* Installing the new car battery an hour before bed;
* Discovering I bought a car battery 3 years ago but it is not the dead battery I just removed from my car and having no idea what the fuck that's all about.

Fuck it. Goodnight.

  • Sat, 19:10: Hate breakdown but we did good. I definitely need a retainer again next year. Family dinner then hitting the road
  • Sat, 23:06: I am on the road home. It was another good Pennsic not because of awards or parties, but because of the people I spend my time with.

Pennsic tradition!

Mom gets us

My tweets

  • Thu, 22:48: So 85% of my stuff was already still packed from last year, just had to pack it all in the car. You win this round, Past Me!
  • Thu, 22:52: On the road to Philly to drop off the cats at Mom's, then off to Pennsic for the land grab aftermath tomorrow.
  • Fri, 11:42: Almost ready to go. Finishing up the last load of laundry and then it's hello turnpike!

  • Tue, 16:56: I'm swamped, so I'm just going to pack for Pennsic once I get there.
  • Tue, 21:42: Hit an impasse in my garb project - chose the wrong fabric. The fix will take too long now, so I either try to do it at Pennsic or table it.

  • Sat, 23:58: I suppose if I was going to spill something all over my Pennsic packing I could have done worse than laundry detergent, right?
