Sorry I’m such a slacker.
For those of you who were there, you know that Tara’s party went over very well. I still need to get the video processed… but I promise to do that asap.
For those of you not there, I’ll say that things went smashingly. She loves her pad… she felt really touched that we all chipped in to get it for her… she really had no idea that this all was happening… and she’s already improving since she got it. Though I must say it’s a bit (A lot) louder than a soft pad… clack clack clack. Oh well… it’s a great pad.
I hope to write some type of review of it soon… but with finals coming up, and papers coming due… I’m not sure when I’ll get around to it.
Meetings for the next Kumoricon are coming along well. We didn’t have one this week, but I hope by the one next week the site will be ready to go live. Here’s hoping.
As a follow up to the con info and critisism… I must retract a bit I think. Turns out Ohayocon was the first to square everything. While it was impossible to get ahold of the person incharge of the artshow, we just got the check back and the 2 pieces that didn’t sell. Katsucon should be sending the check soon… and Ushicon, the girl is being a tad odd. First she looses a $900+ Money order… then certified letters us $300 cash… then supposedly mails the remaining $600+ Money Order Monday of last week… 13 days later, no check. It doesn’t take that long to get something from Austin, TX. So at this point I’m thinking the girl is either lying… or she really isn’t that bright. Just give us the money. And we’ll be done with you. I’m trying to push Druihd into emailing the conchair and letting them know about this horrible irresponsibility to follow through. As she mentioned… is there something wrong with just paypal-ing the money? GAR!
On a political front… Kerry is our man. Lets hope he can pull it off. Nothing Is sacred to the Bush administration. Using 9/11 footage for reelection commercials. Come on. Why didn’t daddy think of that and show footage of us bombing the hell out of civilians… or Reagan use it showing the wars in Central America, or Oliver North shredding documents with a smile on his face. Heck, why doen’t the Bush Administration show Rummy meeting with Sadam, Cheney at a board meeting for Haliburton, and W meeting with the Bin Laden Family, and Ashcroft hanging the sheet on blind Justice… that would be more appropriate’ “This is what we can do for you… join us in another 4 years”. How about Welcome to Hell… they are currently seating in the back… please watch your heads, and do check your bags and coats at the desk. Sorry… ranting.
Short of that… oh, and gay marriages are starting to happen. Thank God. Maybe if we can get about 40-50 Mayors doing this, we can get it to the point they can’t be reversed. How many thousands now? San Fransisco, Multnoma County in Portland, Upstate New York… come on… lets keep this ball rolling. And lets hope it doesn’t stop there…. there are so many good things that could happen… if we have a few mayors that are willing to risk being tried for breaking the law, maybe we can get some Governers, Senators, or Congressmen to start moving toward bettering humanity and the counry and saying to hell with the consequenses… this is the right thing to do.
