making a list, checking it twice  

chefted/Ted made an OMG good dinner last night. I allowed as how I was going to keep him for at least *two* more weeks (since I’ll be gone for a week, I better keep him for two so I can take advantage, you know). Really, I don’t know why I say that, because *I’m* not the one who’s got a waitlist of women (and possibly the occasional guy) who are hoping I might part ways with my spouse and therefore be available. I believe janne/Janne is first on the waitlist. :)

I have put together a travel grant for my trip to London/Nottingham in September. Now I am neurotically trying to get ducks in a row for ComicCon. I am making a list and checking it twice, and probably six or eight more times after that, right now. So:

print the following:
- SDCC confirmation page
- plane tickets
- hotel information
- local food venues (THANK YOU, lithera/Lithera et all!)
- everybody’s mobile numbers
- my panel & autographing information
- my tentative schedule
- the travel grant

- do laundry this afternoon
- business cards
- find the following:
  » my little red card carrier
  » my business card carrier
- camera/battery charger
- charge camera battery
- passport

things to buy:
- more allergy medicine, just in case
- vitamin c, because having it with me is probably smarter than saying “oh, i’ll buy it there”
- ditto with a small thing of zinc
- trinkets

This is a bare nubbin of what I feel I probably need to do, but I guess it’s a place to start.

God on a stick. I went to get us some milk and cookies, and as I was bringing Ted’s out to him, the bottom fell out of the milk glass. Just *chunk*, it fell out. And I actually *saw* the milk fall out of the glass like I was watching a time-lapse video, blooping up and then falling down through the glass, and then spreading out beneath it before it hit the floor. It was *extremely* bizarre. And startling as hell. I had the shakes for about five minutes after. Jeez.

I have told Todd Klein that you're coming to see him, and he says he's looking forward to it...

RE: Glass with bottom falling out: Enough to get you into the X-Men, surely?

Excellent! I have it on my List Of Things I'm Doing. :) Did you tell him I'd be the American woman bearing greetings from "Porrig O'Memmblblb?" :)

*laughs* I donno, would I be joining the X-Men for my super-vision, for actually *seeing* the milk go bloop, or for my glass-shattering abilities, do you think?

I forbore from telling him you'd be mangling my name, but I'm sure he'll know what you're trying to say whenyou say it. After all, he has no idea of any kind about how to pronounce it, so anything you say will probably convince him.

X-powers: I was thinking of your uncanny ability to cause unusual domestic crises, but of course the ability to actually see these as they happen would also be part of this.

Nottingham in September? Does that mean you're coming to FantasyCon?
kitmizkit on July 20th, 2008 02:39 pm (UTC)
Such is my plan! I have to wait til I get paid to get the membership, but that's the plan. With any luck himself and myself will both be there. :)

What a devious, sinister plan it is!

kitmizkit on July 20th, 2008 02:49 pm (UTC)
It is! It even involves a TRAIN! The best plans always involve trains.

passport is good. did goth_huntress give you the home and cell numbers?
kitmizkit on July 20th, 2008 02:41 pm (UTC)
She did! Or at least her cell. :)

I friended chefted--I love blogs with recipes.

...though he's probably a better cook than I am...

Huh?! glass is weird! It can respond to stress in the oddest ways. When we moved into our last place - a rental sublet from a friend - we were sound asleep the first night and there was an almighty crash. we assumed drunks had hefted a brick through a downstairs window but no. Then we realised that the bathroom light cover had just shattered. all that was left was the rim still screwed into the base of the light. Now we had been nowhere near the thing and nor had anyone else for the month the place had stood empty, nor had we altered the heating or anything. By the time the light blew the light had been switched off for about three hours. All we could imagien was that we had been uip in the attic a lot and had soemhow jig

Thankyou BB for that premature posting

...-gled the cover round by walking on the ceiling above it so that it was too tight in the fitting and the stress built up until it shattered. ... well that or spooks! If it was spooks though they obviously got it out of their systems because nothing like that happened again while we were there.

Could yours have been a leftover packing crack?

Don't be silly! Of course you have a waitlist! Yours is just...I dunno...less vocal or sneakier or something.
