    Myrea and Maggie!

    Time for me to get in gear for the day. I have to write up a summary of conversations from 2 years ago now for my boss. *sigh* I hate office politics.

    Sleep well BF and Jaymz!

    Hope the Dr appointment goes well Lil!

    Grrr. *waves fist at Bryan* Words like that'll get your honorary Aussie status revoked, mister.

    Most newbies to Vegemite make the mistake of spreading it on waaay too thick. You want a decent spread of margarine/butter, and the lightest shmear of Vegemitey goodness.

    Should be. Isn't.

    How was your weekend of craziness? Did you get back from the rellies in time? Did you see everything you wanted at the con? Was the con good? How'd the costumes turn out?

    Yep, got back in plenty of time from the rellies. My gun was still sticky despite having since Thursday to dry, but it came with me anyway. Our group looked fantastic (try this, but I don't know if it'll work. I need to find a new image host since Photobucket went shitty). I got to hit most of the panels I wanted to go to (one on writing kickass women, one on collaborative writing, Mr was too tired to stay through the last one), met (and got sassed by) Brent Spiner, LeVar Burton, Ric Flair (Mr. went to school with his daughter and just wanted to ask up on her), Charles Martinet ("It'sa me, Mario!"), Dana Snyder (Master Shake from Aqua Teen Hunger Force), and Claudia Gray. We got an awesome photo with LeVar and Charles signed our Super Mario 64 cartridge. All-in-all, we had a great time, and I hope they come back next year, and we can do the whole weekend without family stuff in the way.

    And it's still in today.

    I'll probably take it down tonight. Three days is about all I can handle before it's too rumpled for me to keep getting away with it.

    *quickly withdraws the *shudder*

    In my defense, It was an aussie who prepared my first sample of vegemite.

    It looks fantastic, Myrea! And plus side of braids? Bomb-ass waves when you finally take them out.

    That would be nice, but they put so much product in it, I'm going to have to wash it as soon as I take it down.

    Good evening, reppers!

    I heard about that story on the radio today. How bizarre, and really. How does that happen? Did she think they just dissolve or something?
