I called today and made an appointment to get Garuda's oil changed tomorrow afternoon, so that's no problem. Later in the evening, I'll be at passionandsoul
's class and then taking him over to the Grind.
Friday I may be having dinner at Kalia's with ravenlaughing
, if she responds with a yes.
Tonight I went over to the AFK and spent time with some of the steampunks, and bought a couple of books from Phil Foglio. It was a lovely evening. Before I headed over to the AFK, I dropped into a game shop at the Everett Mall and picked up a copy of Monty Python Fluxx, and we played that this evening. There was a good deal of laughing, as one might expect when Outrageous Accents are invoked. The wireless situation at AFK has shifted again -- wireless is once again available, with a daily posted password in the establishment. It was a sensible solution on all counts. Oh, and there's a new guy being trained as waitstaff who goes by Gir. He has a Gir tattoo on his leg. I am deeply amused.
My creakyparts are creaky. I started on the bc pills today and did not take any of the tylenol I would have. Needless to say, I am exceedingly creaky, headachy, crampy, and just plain fucking miserable. I didn't have time or energy for trying to get in touch with the patient rep at the VA, but I'll do that early next week sometime. I may be meeting lakmiseiru
for chai on Tuesday afternoon, so I'll try to get into the VA that day to talk to the rep. Consolidating things into one trip would be the easiest way to do it.
I got in touch with mythworker
, who said I don't absolutely have to be at the 9am PNC thing, though he's encouraging us to be there for the Q&A session. There will apparently be a meet & greet on Sunday during dinner which he says would be the best time for me to show up, so I'll definitely shoot for that and see if my brain is leaking out my ears or not for the 9am slot. I'll do my best to make it then, too, but I can't really promise.
Of more import regarding the AFK is the fact that I'm going to actually arrange to have my birthday party there on March 27th. I've already talked to Kayla and just need to get it onto the schedule with them formally. They'll do catering type stuff there, so that makes it a hell of a lot easier on me, not having to actually rent a venue. I know Everett is kind of out of the way for a lot of my friends, but with two month's notice, I figure people can make arrangements to get there that evening if they really want to show up and celebrate with me. I was pretty shocked when Kayla swore that she thought I wasn't a day over 30. I mean, seriously, and she wasn't just yanking my chain with that.
Anyway, watch this space for more info on the party. I'll offer more as details emerge.
