There’s been things going on in my life lately, which have kept me fairly busy. Let me tell you about them!
Firstly, my vampire and I trekked out to Baltimore last month for Otakon. Much fun was had, even though the donor/vamp gathering that was planned didn’t happen. Apparently people tore down my signs. Boo on them. But I did meet a friend of a friend there (who is a vamp) so it wasn’t a total loss! That, and seeing my vamp and I going all fan girl in front of Charm City Cakes was totally worth it. Next year, we’re thinking of heading out a couple of days early, see if any of the other swans and vamps want to come out (but not necessarily for the con) and ride the Ducks. Cause one of the stops is Edgar Allen Poe’s grave. Bwahahaha.
Secondly, the VVC has been hosting a public chatroom. This isn’t like our public meetings, where it’s done in private, then posted for public veiw and comments after the fact. This is public public. Joe Schmo down the street could come, if they wanted. We’re located on DalNet on IRC, in #vampirevoices. Stop by, and chat! There’s also scheduled chats with specific topics to be discussed. We’re still working on a set schedule, but so far it’s looking like the first or second Sunday of the month, about 4pm EST. I’ll try to remember to blog about it when the next one gets decided on. The first two were a blast. And the number of people who showed up! Whoa. Heck, my vamp even showed up for the last one.
Thirdly, irl, my job is offering overtime out the wazoo. So I’m signing up for it, often working 6 day work weeks, sometimes working a double shift or two within that week. Money is good, even if it is the root of all evil. That, and it’s been hot as blazes here lately, so when I get home I am tuckered out. My bf even gets annoyed that I’ll talk to him for a few, go take a shower, and head to bed. When, before I started overtiming, I’d talk to him for hours at a time, and play video games, too. Now it’s like, I’ll talk to him for about an hour or so, maybe play a bit, then start nodding off at my pc. No room for other random shit like blogging or checking email on a regular basis. Blech.
So yeah, that is what has been going on. Somewhat boring, and all. I mean, I haven’t even dyed my hair in months! People are going to start thinking something is wrong with me, since I’m letting the blonde show…
Y’all be good and stuff, and I’ll try to post later on in the week.
