Chicon 7

So we're back from the 2012 WorldCon, and everything went swimmingly. I intend to do some more detailed posts, but for right now - awesome company, awesome convention, awesome city. Also: I'm Zoë! Go, me!

Back to the Grind, in More Ways than One

I'm back to work today, and in my first conversation with my colleague this morning, he said, "Oh my God, I'm so glad you're back." It's the curse and the blessing of working in a small team, I expect, but it did give me pause.

I'm also back to the gym this morning, as I've gained a little weight in the last several months, and it's time to get rid of that and a few more besides. With my current travel schedule and the gym closing during my week at home, I've been a bit lackadaisical as it relates to my strength training. That won't do, so it's time to get back to it. Once the Fannie May candy's gone, I mean.

The End of Summer

I'm closing the comments today for the Hot Chicks and Smart Men Dig Reading Summer Reading Program in Honor of Debbie Faught. I'll be announcing the winners and such shortly. Thanks to everyone who participated!

Speaking of Travel

I'll be in Oregon at the beginning of next week, but I'll be home in time for The Mechanicky Gal to come to town for our regularly scheduled semi-annual drunkenness, debauchery and shopping. Applications are now being taken for Minions.

Can't wait to get there! I see a new low cal hard cider ad - we'll have to try it!

Ended up having neither time nor internet on the 4th. Ooops. Also, dammit.

But that's one thing I can cross off the ridiculous to-do list...

Anne, I can totally see you do Kermit arms. Hee!

Hubba hubba, that is some outfit (and pose)! I don't know if I should applaud or be very, very scared.

I would love to send my application but I'm afraid I wouldn't be a very good minion :)

Also, I raised I think a little over last year's $220 for my library in my #abuckacontest summer reading piggy back. I don't have the exact figure yet, such tabulations require copious amounts of libation, which, oddly, makes them take longer...

Thanks for consistently contributing with your reading list!

Fannie May candy does not contain calories. I learned that at my mother's knee.

I'm so glad you guys had a good time. Maybe next time I'll be able to join in.
As to MG - Ditto Anne

Love, love your Zoe gear!

Thanks, Lorraine. I had fun putting it together, aside from the trauma of trying to find that shirt...
