Favors, Requests, and owed work.

If you or someone you know is waiting on work from me, hearing back from me, or was waiting for a response from me on something about websites, the work I do, or such, please ping me again. I’ve been through a large flurry of work and have also been catching up on the things […]

Putt Putt Vroom!

susandeer is just kicking butt on the auto front. First driving classes up in San Fran. And then securing an open-use auto loan so she could car shop at her own pace. Today her foraging paid off as she found a sweet deal on craigslist and pounced on it in just a few hours. As […]

How did you spend your weekend?

A great weekend!

Things seem to be crossing some sort of turning point. After being dead tired from all the moves, unpacking and work, more and more social things are popping up. This weekend at the suggestion of teddytiger and twentythoughts being interested in it, we hit California Extreme. It’s a bit gather of lots of old arcade […]


The first furry convention I attended, (The furry track at a Philcon) I remember a fursuit creation panel where it was discussed that about 2% of the fandom was in to fursuiting. By the time I got on the board of this new Anthrocon convention, in our stats we knew that about 5% of our […]

Butter Math

Isn’t it funny what sticks in your head: 3 spreads is 1 pat. 2 pats is 1 dab. 4 dabs is a glob. 73 gobs is equivalent to the fat in 1 frappachino.
