It Begins!

The 'Con metamorphosis has begun. I got my hair cut last week, and did the first bleaching on Saturday. redheadlass bleached zensidhe's hair at our place on the same day, so we were both freakishly blonde for tacit and anklesnake's housewarming party. I'll be bleaching it again tonight (possibly tomorrow night?) and once more on Wednesday or Thursday morning.

Other 'Con preparations are under way as well. I've made my packing list, femetal and I went to the Army surplus store to pick up a few things, and hopefully alias_node and I will be going shopping for big stompy boots on Wednesday.

It occurs to me just how well everything is going. Not just with Dragon*Con coming up, but with life as a whole. In the last month I've gone from unavoidable impending unemployment to a promotion and transfer to the group that I've been wanting to get into for the past year. The Smoosh continues to get along fabulously. I'm still giddy about Alcor. The party on Saturday was a blast (Poly Tampa on Sunday was also fun). I spent a good deal of the party talking with Keirston and catching up. I've also re-established friendly e-mail contact with Marissa, which pleases me very much. That feels like I'm suddenly free from a splinter I've had for 4 years.

Kim picked up volume 2 of Invader Zim on Saturday. Yay!!!

Officially the promotion to Auto Finance starts on Wednesday, but in actuality I'm moving my stuff over and starting work over there today. My vacation starts on Wednesday, and there's a bunch of stuff to get done before then, so I'm not gonna be bored any time soon. We'll also be rolling out some pretty nifty technologies in the coming months. John, the IT manager, is a bigger gadget-freak than I am (and a really nice guy), and I look forward to working for/with someone who's genuinely enthusiastic about technology!

And oh yeah, CON!!!

Re: It Begins, indeed!
Yes! And tonight we're going to highlight Mike's hair!!! ;-)

Love you too!

(BTW, for anyone who doesn't know, that was all an Aqua Teen Hunger Force reference.)

I'm glad that everything is going so well for you. It's about time you caught some breaks. (Hell, it's about time all of us caught some breaks.

Hopefully I'll see you guys before you leave for Con. (I need to give you money for the wine and all...) but if not you have to squish enough fun in there for me too.

;-)

I don't know what makes me happier; the fact that this conversation about Mike's pubic hair is happening on my journal, or the fact that there's no filter on this post! :-)
