Whew…. milestone

1900 badges pre-printed. Pre-printing means that even if we lose power and register people by candle-light, you’ll get your badge. I

Bicycle! Bicycle!

As part of the move, I ended up donating my bicycle to the locak thrift shop rather than bringing it. I just didn’t have room. After I was here a little bit, I ended up picking up a new bike down at costco. It’s a nice hybrid bike (street bike with a little off-road capability) […]

Making the watermelon evil.

So for the great memorial day feast I bought a seedless watermelon. Folks ate about half of it, and then I ended up looking at leftover watermelon.

Things have had me running screamingly fast of late. My life always seems to run into odd fits around Anthrocon time. I don’t know why. And it’s not that AC keeps me busy. I’ve had something like 2 moves and 3 major job changes on top of the various Anthrocon’s. Scary stuff. And this year […]

He is a good person and your usual game/geek/furry dude. I’ve already got Yosemite chalked onto the “to do” list, as well as San Fran. What other […]
