Short story: as many of you know, I am the costume mistress for a small community ballet company. I have been doing this for 20 years, first as a volunteer and then as a paid (small, but paid) production staff.
an unauthorized person - maybe a mechanic? - TOOK A PLANE FOR A JOYRIDE outside of SeaTac airport.
Congressman Dave Reichart is retiring, and I won’t be sad to see him go. He was King County Sheriff and I had great respect for him (he brought down the Green River Killer) but since he went to DC, he’s been a quiet well-behaved Republican, rubberstamping Trump’s actions.
I was fired today.
and my brain is exploding. So much to process!
My cousin is a self-published author. Apparently her latest piece has been nominated for this award, which I have never heard of. (Amazingly, I got an email from this award promoting their nominees! Can’t *imagine* how they got my email. >this is my surprised face<)
It is Procession time again and I have designed my costume for this year. Unfortunately I cannot draw to save my life, but we are going to be Hyacinth Macaws (think the blue parrot from the movie Rio)
OMFG what a day.
I am off for a 2 week vacation in England with my best friends. We are celebrating 20yrs of Internet friendship. I am living proof that Internet friendships are “real” friendships.
My darling kitty Sherman has developed a small lump on his head. So I, wanting to be careful, took him to my Doctor Daughter The Vet.
two weeks ago today, I was an idiot and tripped in my own backyard, breaking a bone in my right hand (a carpel bone, if you want to know). it’s now in a cast, I am on short term disability from work (my job is 100% keyboarding). so my typing SUCKS
in terms of their “Leading Man” and who the audience will be invested in.
I saw this swimsuit and it’s *adorable*! But I can’t get a good look at the bottoms. What I *don’t* need is a bikini-cut bottom to scoop under my already-to-ample tummy. One of the reviews talks about a high waist bottom, which is what I want. But I’m not familiar with the retailer.
The Bastard and I went to one of those ‘get a free dinner and listen to our sales pitch’ presentations tonight. And - while I’m fully aware he was selling his services and his preferred investment strategy - it was thought-provoking.
I am home sick today - lousy head cold, my throat feels like I swallowed glass, yadda yadda...
My son and his girlfriend (he’s 26, she’s 21) just dropped that bomb on us.
Considering my recent posts, this is NOT serious!!
I attended a celebration of life yesterday, for a samba sister of mine. She died of brain cancer, much much too soon, at age 60.
Tried to explain to the Bastard about what is going on with Leslie Jones, and of course he starts with “don’t bring being a woman into it; if women hacked men, they’d be putting up naked pictures too” and I was just ..... ARGH. You CAN’T take the gender dynamics out this! That’s one of the big reasons she’s a target!…
I went for a run this morning! I am trying (for the :cough: 6th time, at least) the Couch25K app, and have run successfully 3 times this week. Go, me! I have 4 weeks till Dragon*Con and desperately need to drop a few pounds - I don’t want to have to adjust my costumes again! My friend and I have just decided on our…
