WTF weather? There was a huge, insane rain/hail storm yesterday that flooded our parking lot at work. My jeep was right in the middle of the nearly knee deep pool and I had to wade out there to get to it. Of course, that's the day I decide my new River boots
. Ugh. I thought about taking them off (and probably should have), but the water was nearly black it was so dirty and I didn't really want to think about what was floating in it or settled on the asphalt. So. My boots are fraked. I went to queenmaab
's and rinsed them out, though. Then we went off and picked up her new DS (yay!) and spent the rest of the night setting it up and also trying on the River costume she made for me.
Speaking of, after several attempts, I finally managed to put some photos on Sikozu (my DS). Apparently Moonshell will only read non-progressive jpg images so I had to resave everything. Once that was figured out, it works all right though. I wish there was some sort of rotate function, but.. whatever. Looks all right.
Today is day three without Schrodinger ;_; It's weird not having the constant hum and the blue lights in my room. I don't like it. Parts for Schrodinger Mark II came in today, though. Just missing the case and a couple other things. Unfortunately, I will be off in Star Trek: Phase II (formerly New Voyages) land.
I'm mostly packed for the trip. This year I'm going sort of light and packed two medium duffle bags (one with clothes, one with other stuff), a backpack for days, and my laptop bag. I guess I probably could have just brought a large suitcase, but... meh. Smaller bags are probably going to be easier to handle. One thing that's bugging me though is that I can't for the life of me find the small flashlight that converts to a "candle" that I used last year. Seriously have no clue where it is.
Talked to my boss today and he's let me have Thursday and Friday of this week of as well, so I'm going to leaving for Port Henry on Thursday morning. Hopefully I'll be able to wrangle somewhere to stay for the night. If not, I guess I'll just sleep in my car for a night. Whatever. Won't be that big of a deal. I've decided not to go nuts with the food this time and will probably just buy food from the store in the morning. I've got most of the important stuff packed: clothes, camera, batteries, toiletries, DS... Talyn has been all cleaned up and I've also managed to pack in a copy of Kiss Kiss Bang Bang
, and The Boondock Saints
for entertainments. I'm told they're trying to stick to 12 hour days this year. Sweet.
Hopefully when I get back next week, I can put Schrodinger Mark II together and everything on the hard drive will be intact. At the very least, I hope I will be able to save all my stuff on to the new secondary drive. I really want to finish my Stark/River fic, but it's trapped there (sorry, not_last_resort
! -_-; )
