I owe it to myself

... Guess I'd better update... I still haven't written the AWA chronicle, and I've been to another con since, so...

Wed, whateverthehellthedatewas...
Got up to call in to work by 8:30am... couldn't get ahold of my boss, so I left a message... packed... chatted... etc... Finally got a call to come in at 10am... Got to work, had to wait a few hours for things to start, so I worked on the macro and such... Got instructions done, and we finally started testing late in the afternoon. I was getting a bit anxious, and told my boss I wanted to leave ASAP to get on the road... Finally we got a test done, had some other problems, and I had to make some emergency code fixes before I left, but was out before 5... Rushed home to change, then headed to Chinese for a good dinner to keep me going on the drive... left by 6....

Drove... drove.. drove... stopped twice for gas, quickly... didn't make very good time, took 7.5 hours from Chinese to the bypass, don't know for sure what time I actually arrived at the rent's place. Woke them up to let me in, said hellos, and went to bed.

Thurs woke up, had breakfast, chatted for a bit and such, then left for Jingoro's... Jingoro and Trinity were heading out for interviews, so I visited RedneckNinja and Oz for a bit, then took everyone (and Yakumo) out to Chinese buffet for dinner.... ended up sitting around Jingoro's place watching Adult Swim episodes and playing Empire Earth for entirely too long... I crashed around 5:00am, and Jingoro and Yakumo were still going...

Woke up to a phone call from Rodimus.. seems the big boss changed their mind about something, and I had to log in to work and do some things... Also, Taz had called the night before, so I returned the call - it seems their sister had to have some emergency heart surgery, and they were on their way to the hospital, having been driving since early morning to get there. Taz promised to let me know how it went... I vegged for a few hours, traded messages with Tigger, played some more EE and all that... Finally started getting a migraine and realized I hadn't eaten... RedneckNinja stopped by again for a bit, I took a shower, then Jingoro and I went to Faz to eat, but it was too crowded, so we ended up and Wendy's... which, if nothing else, helped ease the pain a bit... I vegged and played with the cat for a couple hours, then Jingoro and Trinity went out for karaoke... I thought karaoke + migraine != fun, so I stayed.. enjoying the dark and quiet.... eventually the headache broke, I was able to sleep... and they came back, Trinity being very drunk on tequila...

Woke up when Jingoro left for the MTG tourney, caught a bit more sleep, then showered and packed my bags... Oz called, and we went out to Thai for lunch. Then we headed to the rent's place to drop off Oz's car. We stopped in for a minute to say hi, and Oz ended up making a very bad joke about BDSM to haha. We then headed to Sugoi...

Got to the con, saw Billsama, who was in charge of reg, and they said they couldn't comp me... oz ended up just doing a 1 day reg, I found Hayama, and finally Goofy and such, and miraculously a staff badge was found for me to use... We wandered the con for a bit, I got to see and briefly chat with plenty of people I hadn't seen in... over a year? long time, anyways... Oz and I started getting hungry, so we asked the desk staff for recommendations... and lo and behold, there was an upscale Chinese place we decided to try...

This place was... wonderful... It's been a long time since I was in a Chinese place with so much... atmosphere... 2 story main room mostly open, with a divider sunk into the floor with plants, and water.... really nice... we sat down by the bar to wait for a table, and a family came in after us... Oz immediately fixated on the daughter, who was probably 16 at best... Evidently Oz thought she was flirting heavily with him, and got more and more vocal about it... We finally got our table, and the family also got their within viewing distance of Oz (I was blocked by plants)... So throughout the entire dinner, Oz kept up the obsession... the food was excellent... not my usual kind of wonton soup, and the eggrolls had a certain something... but the black bean chicken I ordered from the authentic menu was superb.... we spent at least 2 hours at that place.... the waited was Japanese, and ended up talking with us for 20 minutes or so about things... it was all good... we were stuffed when we left...

Back at the con, I gave Oz the cheap camera the rents have foisted on me, and they ran around getting pictures with all the jailbait... We hobnobbed around with Goofy and such, and pretty much just wasted time.... Found Cammy, whom I hadn't seen in quite awhile, and just enjoyed joking and such... Finally we got the right people together to close the DDR room so we had exclusive use, and played DDR for a few hours, Cammy and Holman supplied the beer... Then we decided it was hot tub time, so we all went in there, and again Holman brought the goods... I have no idea how long we were in there, but at around 6am we finally had enough... I went out to the car for some fresh clothing, and we drove back to the rents to die.

Woke up, showered, packed, and left for home... Took some of the few remaining items the rents were storing for me... fueled up and grabbed some arby's, since I left too early for dinner at the rent's... didn't have to stop until well past StL... was a bit out of it, had trouble with the pump... then the attendant seemed to flirt briefly with me as I bought a snack... there was a DQ next door, so I got a big blizzard to keep me awake... it worked... made it all the way back fairly easily. Total time from arby's to my mailbox was right at 7 hours, which isn't my best ever, but much better than recent trips.

unpacked the car, snacked a bit, then died....

Got up, vegged, took it easy... had to meet Rodimus for lunch, since there was fallout from Fri's paperwork and I had to sign by noon... was damned if I was gonna go into work on day off... came home and napped... finally realized I needed to do laundry and get food, so did both... went to the store and stopped by Wendy's on the way back for a quick and easy bite... burned some cds.... and crashed.

Today was.. work... not too bad. I get more and more the impression my boss is grooming me to be a replacement.... Not sure if I want that.... Not sure if I'll have a choice...

Talked to Taz, who should be getting in about... now... been chatting and such, nothing really big...

Well, I finished that one... all that's left is the big entry from nearly 2 months ago, and I should be mostly caught up...
