Scorpion

(no subject)

Yesterday's thrift store trip, mildly successful. Got good shirts and a sweater for the first of the two NPCs I'm playing this weekend. However, the suits were all too expensive, but that led to...

Today's thrift store trip, as the whole store is half off Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5 to 9. Ka-ching! I won't spend $40+ for a suit for a weekend larp, but I *will* spend $20. And to boot, I even found a suit that fits me damn well, and looks pretty snazzy, if I do say so myself. I may even try to make excuses to wear it elsewhere! (Did I mention I saw Rory at the thrift store, also doing some last-minute shopping for said larp? Well, there, I just did.) Oh, and I got a fine t-shirt for a fellow thrift-storian as well.

Tonight, Agent Dieter and Toltec came by, RQ cooked a fine and tasty meal (we owed them one from when they had us over for dinner last fall.) Also, they entertained my bebe greatly. Thereafter, we watched one of my Christmas presents, Battle Royal which I confess was pretty damn cool, indeed.

Now, to decide whether or not to go to work tomorrow.

(Final, three-parter episode of Justice League might not air until July? Man.)

Down to the wire

HOT NEWZ:
* Bush's prescription drug benefit plan? Turns out to be 33% more costly than they said.
* Record number of people losing unemployment benefits.
* Military expands, despite whatever Rumsfeld was saying.
* Full text of the Democrat debate from Thursday night, if you're into that sort of thing.
* Spirit is almost back in action. Meanwhile, NASA rethinks abandoning Hubble.
* Whoah. Pixar and Disney to part ways.

"We are about to embark on what is arguably the coolest geologic field trip in history."

no more me

Finishing packing now, and will be leaving for that larp within the hour. Won't be home until Sunday afternoon, after which is Super Bowl time. Thusly, no e-mail or LJ for me until Sunday night-ish or so (scary, I know.) If you wanna get a hold of me, I'll have my cell phone with me.

Have a good weekend everyone.
