Ottawa Comiccon 2014 - Day 2

This time, I took my car because, I wanted to be there earlier. I got up extra early to ensure parking. The cost difference for the day from bus to park was 20 cents. Of course it cost more if you consider gas, but I got there and back way quicker.

My first necessity of the day was to get away from the stranger that latched onto me after I asked if he could hold my spot in line long enough for me to throw out my banana peel. I have a knack for having strangers latch onto me simply by being polite.

Eventually, I was able to browse and attend panels freely. The first panel I went to was called "Sexy Armour" and it was good, but I'm not interested in joining an armour guild.

After that, I went to an Advanced Steampunk panel. I learned some new things and have a bunch of research to do before next year. There was a wealth of knowledge on time periods that peaked my interest as I tweak my costume for next year.

I missed the third panel I wanted to go to on creating Alien worlds. I'm upset about it, but I'll just have to ask the Internet more about it.

The final panel I went to was also on Steampunk, and though I didn't learn as much from it, I found it enjoyable.

Another writer told me that he thought my costume was very sexy, so I ended my day on a high note.

I have two toes that don't want to bend far. I'm not sure what happened to them. Perhaps just the two days of walking around at the Con has upset them. I'm sure it will make toe work at roller derby interesting.

I will have two costumes next year as two days of corset wearing was hard on the organs and back. Ladies, if you think removing a bra provides relief, try a corset!

I had a good Con and I'm looking forward to next year's Ottawa Comiccon.

Ciao

A Lot of Bullspit - 2020 ROW80 R3-W5

This week has had a lot of bullspit in it. Shortly after my last trip to buy reno supplies, I discovered mold in my bathroom. While that's not shocking, it's pretty much because they appear to have left wet drywall in the wall and covered the wall with another layer of drywall instead of properly repairing it after a leak. Geniuses. This is a mixed bag. It means I may have to do the tub area sooner than I expected. It is the same wall as the annoying peeling paint, so that's kind of good. I may just need to replace much of the wall, which is about 1.5 drywall boards because it's a small room. Cost wise, the wall repair isn't so bad. I'm not looking forward to having to deal with it, but I acquired the PPE gear for it and the mold removal supplies. Now, here's where the project may change substantially. I was originally planning to install a tub surround over the tile and then use the Rust Oleum tub restore stuff, but if there is mold in the wall, it's li

My DRAWING course is done. I was happy to be learning it, but I am looking forward to not having graded assignments. After this, I will continue another course I started, which is entirely self-paced. I'll continue sharing my drawings on my Instagram: @thewritebuttons   On the HOME front, I have made a lot of progress on my couch project. Really, it will be a loveseat. I finished the sewing portion of the seat section, the wood base, and have nearly finished the wood back for it. I've added wheels to it instead of legs because I want to be able to move it for easy cleaning. Today, I am working on the sewing of the back piece. I acquired all the hardware I needed for attaching everything. I will have a wood skirt to do, which will help everything stay in place. I also have the sofa cover for it, though I will still have to figure out the arms. I'm taking a break on the sewing until thimbles come later this week because I'm tired of pricking my fingers.  As far as MUSIC

Funky Friday - Losses, threats, and violence

[caption id="attachment_4712" align="aligncenter" width="300"] Image created using Bit Strips.[/caption] I completed the second draft of my story, so I'm writing a quick post of the most prominent stories from this week. Sad - An RCMP officer in Ottawa took his own life. Happy - Jared from the Subway commercials got beaten in prison . I have zero sympathy for sexual predators. Sometimes I think I should feel bad about this, but children are one of our most precious resources and adults like him disgust me. Excited - Anonymous has declared war on Donald Trump! Hopeful - I'm starting a new treatment soon to better manage my pain. Unsettled - Given that I just finished writing a story that features an unknown pathogen... This outbreak in Wisconsin is freaking me out just a tiny bit. Well, that's all I have the mental capacity for tonight. Ciao, R~
