Miscellaneous Monday

Hey! I'm unemployed!

For the next two days, anyway. So today I went to the gym, came home and cleaned up, then went and got a mani, pedi and eyebrow wax. You know - chick stuff. And this afternoon I'm going to take the advice of some friends who actually run for realsies (as opposed to the weak shit I do) and get some running shoes in an effort to care for my joints. I could really get used to this. No, seriously - Publisher's Weekly TOTALLY needs to come see me to offer me $5,000.00 a week for LIFE! KNOCK, KNOCK, MOTHERFUCKER.

And so it begins

I'll be spending most of next week at the Global Dynamics headquarters, picking up my new laptop and dealing with other administrative matters. I expect I'll be traveling quite a lot in the next several months as I get my sea-legs under me. And that's okay, since it will hopefully lead to an outcome that will make me professionally happy and satisfied.

By popular demand

Many of you have been asking about the status of Boogie the Giant Schnauzer.* He continues to improve week over week, although some days are certainly better than others. The length of his daily walkies is not quite where it was before his anesthesia, but he's not falling as often. So - better. Yay!

WorldCon approaches

And my costumes are still in progress. I finally ordered my weapon for the Zoe costume this morning, but I still need to buy pants for both Zoe and my Steampunk outfit. I suspect that I'll have excellent luck in our many local equestrian shops, which leaves only finding a blouse to wear under this jacket. I thought I'd try and put up my costume elements over at Pinterest, but my "invite" still hasn't arrived, so fuck it. Also: The TSA is going to have a field day with my checked luggage. I wonder if I should leave them a note?

Edited 7/9/2012 4:38 p.m.: Costume elements may be seen here.

*This warms my heart, by the way. Obviously I'm completely soft for the big goober, and the fact that others apparently care about his welfare is happy-making to me, since my own emotional well-being is tied up in his.

I, for one, look forward to Boogie Blogging Friday.

My cat sends Boogie her regards but requests he stay in Colorado

Definitely the best kind of unemployed; I hope you're enjoying it tremendously and spoiling yourself properly.

And of course we care about Boogie. I'm glad he's improving.

I would dearly love to be independently wealthy.

And yay, Boogie!

And *fabulous* jacket, Janiece!

By the way, I will for certain be at Worldcon. :) Bought my plane ticket and all.
