DCon '09

Tomorrow, we're off to the con for a weekend of fun and frivolity.
And that's all I have to say til we get back.

DCon survived

Back from DragonCon. We all flew back on Monday afternoon. Completely exhausted as is the norm. Had a great time just like we always do. I noticed this year though, that I took hardly any pictures at all of the random costumes. The first couple years there, I took hundreds of pictures of unknown people. This year, I took a couple hundred pics, but they were almost entirely of our group. I don't know if I've grown jaded, or what, but I am more interested in having a good time with my friends than trying to take a picture of the costumes.

Now we're into the clean up. That will take a few days, and then it will be time for the Squid and Ninsi to begin working on their Halloween costumes. I don't know if I'll make a new one for Halloween or not. I like the Strobe outfit I made for the con, but it doesn't stand alone very well.

Softball season is starting up, and we have a team together. With a sponsor! We have had to change leagues from Grand Prairie to Irving, so we wont actually start playing until the 24th. Grand Prairie just could not get their shit together and we wound up being the only team that was going to play on Thursday nights.

We have managed two practices so far, and this is a special team that we have. I mean that in the best possible way...

Sat down with the Squid and started the driving class this week. We've only done one hour so far. Once we complete the next five hours, she will be eligible to get her permit and we can begin the in-car instruction. I hope that we can complete that by next weekend. It would be nice to get her permit by the time she is 15 1/2.

We have had a ton of rain over the last week. It has rained every day for a week straight now. Overall, I am a fan of the rain. It makes the grass grow, and I don't have to worry so much about getting sunburned. On the other hand, I can not mow the yard while it is wet, and I can't really play golf when it is raining. So there are downsides to it as well.

Most of our stuff is put away from DragonCon. Now we have the two month stretch to Halloween. I know the Squid is wanting to create a new costume for herself, I don't know about Ninsi. I'm content to go with something I already have, though if I could find the right pattern, I can think of a couple things I would like to try.

Otherwise, we are settling down for a couple months. This is the easy time of the year with less going on before the major holidays. Except for the fact that Ninsi is back in school two nights a week, and she is playing on two softball teams. So she's not taking it easy.

In need of a zoot suit.
