Ottawa Comiccon 2015 - Day 3

Thankfully I didn't wake up quite so early this morning.

I didn't make it to any panels today. I hung out with friends, shopped, and did a lot of walking. I also had a nap in my car. My feet screamed at me, but I had to deny their request for amputation. On I went to visit a friend despite their protests.

I chatted about writing and how it can be fun to play with timeline to move a story along in a non-linear fashion. I do these things, but because I haven't studied them to the level someone with an English degree has, I wonder if I'm doing them properly. I guess when I get to the point of beta readers, I'll know.

I suppose it's odd that I never take pictures of other people in costume. I guess I don't need pictures of strangers? There were a lot of sweet costumes though. There was a Hulk that was Hulk-sized.

I want to be in the masquerade next year. I think it would be fun to cosplay a character from something and do it well. I'm thinking of doing Tiny Tina for a cosplay for next year and I have a feeling I'll need to start making the costume in June to be able to pull it off. I also need to start playing the video game the character is from for... research purposes... At least I already own the game. Alternatives include Hit Girl from Kickass, and Kaylee from Firefly.

I'm starting my journey here in selecting the cosplay character I should do. I'm less than 5 foot tall, so it could be fun to do a short character. I'm not into much animé, so I'm trying to find short characters outside of it that I'm actually a fan of because I'd feel odd cosplaying something I don't watch.

I'm having grassfed beef hotdogs for supper because someone had a hotdog earlier and it looked really tasty, but I can't eat regular junk food. They'll be wrapped in lettuce.

Today I threw a Steampunk outfit together:

Well I'm off to cook food, play guitar, and hit up some videogames.

Ciao,

The Gauntlet That Was October

I had a lot of things happen in October. I watched Frankenstein in the cemetery with friends. I had tea with a friend. I started a new sport: curling. This is really fun and I'm enjoying the level of activity it provides and all the strategic elements. I'll do a separate post on it soon. Unfortunately, soon after my first game, I came down with Covid and so did the friend who I had tea with, so I think we both caught it at the place we went to. That wasn't fun. I already posted about that. I was fortunate to be free of it in time to attend Can-Con where I took in lots of panels, saw some of the wonderful writer community, bought many new books, and volunteered to help out in the rooms. The following weekend, I went to the livestream for Danielle Allard's new album release, followed by the in person release. As part of this, she has a 6 video series that releases every Sunday on her YouTube at 1:15 PM EDT. Video number 2, Falling Into Place, is one that I feel fortunate

2023 - Week 40

I felt a touch rough on Monday. After exchanging some shoes, I needed electrolytes. The heat with the egg thing made me a bit nauseus. I had lots of fluids before having noodles for dinner. That made me feel better. When Tuesday came about, I was looking forward to what I might be learning at GSL curling in the evening. I was also excited to being on the ice as a break from the unseasonal heat. It's spooky season! It's supposed to be a cool and cuddly time. We should be wearing hoodies (or bunny hugs if you prefer). Instead, I was sweating in jeans as I simply walked from my condo building to my car. Wednesday's plan was streaming, but I also hoped to fit an exchange at Home Depot in as I got the wrong shelf size for a project. Really, my original plan for something didn't work, so I was choosing to go a different way. I did stream, but I didn't get to Home Depot. Thursday featured work followed by packing for my spooky weekend away with friends. I got my oil and my

I've been busy. Really busy. Life: - Making food for two long weekends (Comiccon and an Iaido seminar) - Finishing my costume for Comiccon, which is in 5 days! (Carnival Punk Buffy the Vampire Slayer) - Went to On the Brink on Friday to hear authors read. Won a book and bought a Steampunk anthology. - In training this week for work (off-site) and it's an early start for me Writing: - Editing The Page & The Magician (just finished Chapter 3) - Finished a short story called The Blood Waitress Club , which is on revision 3 and I'm just waiting for feedback before I put it up on Smashwords - I've been trying to write short stories that may fit into some anthology, but I find it harder to write with some specific criteria in mind rather than coaxing the words from my soul Guitar: - We are learning a lot of songs (Pink Floyd, The Beatles, Green Day, Black Eyed Peas, Bare Naked Ladies, Simon & Garfunkel, ABBA, Ed Sheeran, The Animals, John Fogerty, Ian Thomas) - I hav
