Yes, that's true. OctopodiCon is in THREE DAYS!!! Anad I'm writing this diary as I'm speaking to the press and emailing the hotel the dimensions for the dealer's room and confirming the dance set-up.
In half an hour I have to take an envelope of cash up to our Bursar that a friend handed me to pay for their admission. Then I have to get cracking on sewing the Security armbands.
I delivered some tiny top hat blanks to the hotel staff because they all wanted to wear tiny top hats during the convention and wanted to decorate them themselves.
I fell in love with the blue and black one and decided to keep it and decorate it. I have a steampunk jacket that would go with it...plus I needed an example to show the hotel employees what a finished hat looked like. Right?
This is what I finished it out to:
I also have to put together the boards for the board games - that's just glue and wait for them to dry.
And somewhere in there, I have to mow.
Itzl is sitting at my feet, waiting to be noticed. His water bowl is low, but not empty, so he's not really pushing things just yet. Xoco is looking out the window. Neither one of them cares that I'm busy so long as I scritch them now and again and pay attention when they alert.
