A surprisingly productive day


Today turned out to be more productive than I thought it would be. After Toy Story we stopped in Waldorf and got dinner at Denny's, and when I got home I was unusually tired for it being only 11:30, so I decided to take a little nap... and woke up at noon today. :) Typical.

I took advantage of getting up early (and for me, noon on a Sunday really is early) and dismantled the anti-theft device in Q's car. Seems we're not the only Ion owners who have had the problem of the car locking up on cold mornings, and the favored solution (since Saturn never provided one) was to snip the wire and be done with it, which I did. Hopefully now Q will be able to actually come home from work in the wee hours of the morning, rather than having to sit 10, 20, sometimes 30 minutes waiting just to get the damned car started.

After that I cut and trimmed the lawn, moved some stuff around to where it should be, cleaned up the back porch, and vacuumed the living room. We got a surprise visit from our friend CJ (our last friend from the old guard down here) who stopped in to make sure we were still alive, and it reminded us we need to have a party soon (hopefully we'll be able to plan something when my co-worker Tricia returns from the northeast, plus there's Gaymas in just a few months). I made a nice dinner, and I wrapped up with checking e-mail and the web and playing solitaire (which I'm oddly addicted to lately).

All in all we'd rather have been in Sacramento, at Gaylaxicon, or at the march in DC, but I think I did pretty good for an unexpected staycation. We're both back to work tomorrow, but I'm expecting a light week this week. I'm also hearing from a little birdie that I'm being volunteered to run a certain convention again - hmmm...

G'nite! :D

There's a Gaylaxicon happening in Montreal in 2010.

My first thought was, "Will esprix be there?" It'd be cool to finally meet you!

I'm sure hoping we can make it. We missed Toronto, and even missed this year's, so hopefully...

He'd better show up this time. If not, I'll start getting paranoid...

I noticed. But I didn't take that personally. :P

Gaymas. That sounds like fun. Do you decorate a tree with rainbows?

Hee hee! No, although the house is pretty much its own rainbow. We just decided that it's better to celebrate Christmas after the new year, when people have time and money and need one last party before facing work again, so usually around Jan. 15 we have what our friend Kyan dubbed "Gaymas." :)
