The little things

May 28th, 2009 4 Comments

I don’t know how I can even try to write a post about the “little things” when I am all kinds of stressed out about a 7am flight in less than 2 days (that would be Saturday), with 2 kids, husband and Nanny with all the requisite baggage plus two of the biggest car seats [...]

Worst Day Ever…DISMISSED!

May 27th, 2009 No Comments

Whew. Remember my worst day ever? Well, it’s over. It was still the Worst Day Ever, but at least it had a lovely conclusion. Remember how I though it was a Kharma pre-payment for my glee over my idiot ex-boss being let go the very next week? Well, I still think that is what it [...]

My steampunk costume…

May 26th, 2009 No Comments

Surfing through Flickr, I found myself! It’s what I wore to the Dancing in the Gears ball. Enjoy. I’m on the far right, in case you didn’t realize…:) P

Balticon, the Good, the Bad and the Ugly

May 26th, 2009 8 Comments

Now for the obligatory Balticon 43 wrap up, anticipated and expected. Memorial day weekend saw me, once again, at the lovely Hunt Valley Marriott attending Balticon, the area’s largest science fiction convention, run by the Baltimore Science Fiction Society. Now… The Good Where to begin. It was great seeing folks I met last year, meeting [...]

No More Makeup

May 18th, 2009 No Comments

Well, that’s a bit misleading. I’m still wearing makeup. Oh my, yes. I can’t live without it. Really. What I really mean is no more BUYING makeup. I mean how many shades of “brown” eyeshadow do I need? Especially when I can go a week wearing an eye look with three shades, never repeating a [...]

fear mongering by “eco” will not be tolerated!

May 12th, 2009 No Comments

This make me so mad!!! The page at Super Eco is naked fear mongering. I lurk at Super Eco mostly to see the other side and know thy enemy. Not like I am all for the raping of the environment and eating plastic, but I realize in a modern society a balance must be sought. [...]

Balticon 43…10 days

May 11th, 2009 No Comments

TEN days peeps! Are your costumes ready? Mine almost are. I have to put a few finishing touches on the shirt (duct tape), and find a skirt (hopefully in a drawer somewhere), then hope my Forever 21 (fantastic steampunk stuff there, quite surprising) arrives in time (next Friday) and then I’ll be all set. Oh [...]

Murder at Avedon Hill

May 11th, 2009 No Comments

is finished! It was a great listen, with many talented voice actors/actresses. It was richly narrated and the work that went into describing and bringing to life such a rich and vivid world was not minimal. The last story I was so impressed with was The Corridor and I must admit that Murder at Avedon [...]
