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

ROW80 2020 R4 - GOALS

I've gotten zero writing done recently, however, I had other pressing things.  HOME As my new bed frame was due for arrival last Friday (more on this later), I hauled ass and purged a bunch more stuff from my home. I brought a full carload to donation and started loading up again. I also dealt with my old mattress, which I'm repurposing for a couch. Now, I didn't fully complete it as I haven't figured out all the pieces, but I did get it cut up appropriately and moved out of my bedroom. I'm currently sewing it back together. As for my bedroom, I was able to do a major declutter and access areas I haven't been able to in months. But that area now has bathroom stuff in it. There is more to do, but I'm really happy with my progress of late. I've cut myself numerous times on the couch project including my heel finding a tiny piece of glass, my palm finding a wayward staple, my knuckle finding who knows what, my one thumb having a run in with a box cutter, an

Catching My Breath - 2020 ROW80 R3-C6

 I've tried writing this post numerous times, but I needed a break. A long one. I've been mega stressed out and depressed, so I have been taking a little breather. I was feeling broken, but the experience has forced me to slow down and relax. I've gotten some help including medication for it and I am feeling much better. I'm feeling like myself more with each passing day. I'm sleeping better and have energy again.  I have been reducing my social media time. Especially Facebook. Actually, I enjoy Instagram much more. FITNESS I've been scooting and I'm getting back into skating. It's often hard to get out because of rain. Eventually, I want to do tricks on my skates. This skater may not be in derby anymore, but she's still a skater ;) I have a ton of plans for cross training once winter is here. I'll be hitting up outdoor rinks if they are available, but I'm also going to work on off skate skills that will help me get to doing tricks later on.
