Whew, Weather Underground says this should be the last day of bad weather for a while in the San Jose Bay Area. Weather in the 30s C and 90s F makes me feel sick.
I will be off at Anime Oasis in Boise starting Friday but wanted to have a BayCon party too! So it's Thursday night, May 23rd, at BayCon at the Hyatt Santa Clara. Since it's before the official start of the con, I went with Live Kitten as the opposite of Dead Dog. Sadly, my kitten Rory will not be attending.
There will be snacks, non-alcoholic beverages, anime, fan videos, badge ribbons, pictures of adorable kittens, and games to play. Let me know if you're interested in crash space. It will run from 6pm until late.
Feel free to invite more people! This is an open room party.
So last night I started to listen to the commentary track on Nanoha the Movie 1st. It consists of characters from StrikerS in character, commenting on the movie. In Japanese, of course.
I decided to do an experiment then. I got in bed and tried to sleep. I figured it would be handy if I could fall asleep with people talking, as that's always a problem for me, and then I might enjoy some subconscious learning. Nope, I lay in bed and listened to the whole thing, understanding a good deal of it, until it ended. I think. I listened for a good hour anyway. At least it was amusing.
Boo can go home! I'll pick him up in an hour or so! :)
Boo stayed at the vet overnight. He has a lot of yellow fluid in his abdomen. I agreed to let them do an ultrasound, and they're already running a test on the fluid. I should find out something today.
This is my packing list for the Worldcon in Chicago this year. It will be hot and humid, and I plan to spend the whole weekend indoors if possible. The hotel is connected to the Illinois Center which has places to eat. In-room internet is $10 a day unless we get a deal before then. I plan to plug in my router and leave it open.
Various badge ribbons including "Y2K38 OK"
Cell, charger, spare batteries, battery charger
Digital camera maybe...
