Not my proudest moment...

...but definitely a great time! femetal and I joined dayo yesterday for the "Goths On Ice" skating event being held as part of Convergence 14.

Despite growing up in the frozen tundra of Central New York, I never learned to ice skate. As a result, I spent the afternoon flailing about like a drunk having an epileptic seizure. Of course, a photographer from the Tampa Bay Times was there to catch the fun:
Steph, me, and Kim

I did get better as time went on, but really it was only by the grace of dayo and femetal that I didn't fall. (Thanks to you both for literally saving my butt!) It was a lot of fun though, and I'd probably do it again. At one point Kim and I were skating face-to-face, holding hands. It's probably unspeakably cute except for the terrified look that's likely on my face, and I hope it ends up in the paper on Monday. We'll see. In the meantime, I sent a link to the above photo to my family so they can see that yes, every once in a while we do actually enjoy "wholesome" family-friendly activities! ;-)

YAY! I forgot to tell you to add me back awhile ago... OOOPS. So, you'd best be getting on that, you will probably just pee yourself over my recent post.

Shiny! Looks like I've got some reading to do! *HUGZ*

BTW, your timing is almost spooky. Remember that bottle of your blood that I have (that's how I refer to it- "a bottle of Sheina's blood")? I actually put it to use just last night! We were cleaning the house and Kim came across a little box with some cotton in it like a piece of jewelry would come in. I remembered seeing this cheesy little gag in a book when I was a little kid where you cut a hole in the bottom of a jewelry box and make it look like you've got a severed finger in it. It's completely corny and silly but I'd always wanted to do it so I did, much to the delight of... well... me. I think Kim was mostly amused by how giggly the whole thing made me.

I'll be bringing it to work today. :-)

If it's any consolation, I typed the post with one hand. The other hand was busy drowning a basket of kittens in the toilet.

Does that get me back in your good graces? ;-)
