Gir!

Today's random updates


Didn't update about the weekend. Friday was gaming, possibly the last at Danny's, the guy that started our local group. We're working on a new location, and in the meantime I've taken over the Meetup account. Saturday was a work get-together with Q's co-workers to meet someone's new fiance. There were margaritas and tacos. Sunday I slept in. Alas, we missed my niece's school performance, but I'm told we'll be able to watch the video with her in-person play-by-play, so hopefully that'll make up for it.

Tonight I spent a lot of money at Amazon. A few needed (and some not-so-needed) items now that some of our tax refund came back. The rest will be spent on tickets to Sacramento, fixing my truck, buying a suit, fixing my tooth, and possibly getting Q a new computer and maybe even get us a new TiVo. With luck, there might be some left over, but I'm not holding my breath.

Mom's dealing with Mary's death by helping Mary's sister with the estate and the house. She's not overdoing it, and it's good to get her out of the house and helping out. So far the family drama has been kept to a minimum, but it's early in the process still. Unfortunately, her memorial service is the same day as Q's brother's wedding - blah.

It's spring break this week, so the library is awfully quiet, which is nice - I'm catching up on a lot. I get Friday off, and we're thinking of having a taco night and watching Rocky Horror, just 'cause it's been ages since I did.

Looking ahead to the wedding next month, with a possible layover in San Diego to go through my storage unit, but we'll see how it goes. I'm all for Q spending a lot of time with his family, but between that being a lot of time for me to spend with them, plus, you know, the whole "OMG YOU'VE CORRUPTED OUR SON STOP BEING TEH GHEY REPENT REPENT!" thing. It'd really be a shame if I make it all the way to the PST and not touch base at my much-missed home. After that it's dolls, comics, sci-fi, slash and, of course, Pennsic to carry us through to the fall. Lots to do, lots to do...
Living in paradise

New Year's resolution resolved


Every year I only make one New Year's resolution, and it's always something obtainable and concrete. This year's was to make it back to San Diego, which will now happen next month. It'll be a whirlwind couple of days - my main task is to get to my storage unit to track down some much-needed stuff - but I will definitely plan time to see everyone I possibly can (i.e., get ready for a big group dinner invite). The rest of the trip will be meeting Q's family, his brother's wedding, and a day in Disneyland (and I'll be talking to others about that as well).

So, um, SQUEE! :)
