Nice weather for it...


Weather's been crazy here all weekend - five minutes of sunshine, five minutes of torrential downpour, mudslides, thunder and lightning, the works. Yeesh. But at least my flowers are getting watered. :D I understand this is going to last a few more days. Just bonkers.

We decided to have a little gathering next Tuesday for Q's birthday, so now I'm working at a clip to get some things done. I'm spending my next few nights pulling up carpeting and laying down some flooring and getting as much done as we can before we head up to Mom's for a few days over the weekend. Whee! Gotta love home improvement projects, eh?

My other concern is getting back to San Diego before Pennsic. Flights are obviously not that cheap for the summer months, and I'm frankly weighing the cost of buying a plane ticket against buying that much in garb to get me through (I have some of my garb here, but certainly not all of it). I suppose Uncle could use the money if I asked him to throw me together some Persian garb, or even just simple tunics. I dunno. I'll have to keep checking the fares and deciding what I need to do. Ugh.

On another front, my term as Speaker for the Gaylactic Network is coming to an end, and I've decided not to run again. Too many changes over the last year, including a lot of changes in my priorities, so I'm using my time for other things. Hopefully this will free up some mental time for me to get moving on the art pimping biz. I've already got the artist's agreement drafted (never got any feedback from other art and SMOF friends on it, alas), so perhaps it's time to send it out, get the artwork rolling in (at least two of my artists I'll see at Pennsic), and jump in. In fact, Q just did a nifty 3-part piece that I want to see if I can sneak into the Comic-Con art show, so... :)

Probably not Comic-Con, but if I (or we) make it into town, you're one of the first ones I'll call. :D

Hey, it sounds like you're getting more sunshine than we are. I'm glad we're on the top of a mountain (so we don't get much flooding) though not near the edge (where we'd have to worry about mudslides).

Good luck with the airfares. I'm still wondering what it will cost us to go out to L.A. for Worldcon in August.

Just because I HAVE to say it...

Well, it shouldn't cost me much at all. Maybe a gallon or two of gas, I guess. It's probably going to cost more to go to lunch with you at the Newsroom...

What's with you people not living out here where you're supposed to? :)

A gallon or two of gas? GOOD LORD! Will you be able to afford to get there? :P

We've already missed quite a few things - Gaylaxicon being the biggest, but also Westercon in San Diego, and I'll miss Worldcon in LA. It's funny, the year I moved to San Diego was the year they had Worldcon in Philly, and now that I'm in Maryland, it's in LA. I'm sure once we move back to San Diego they'll have it in DC or Baltimore. :D

It was a thought originally, then we went and bought a house. Silly Q! :D
