Sasquan Is Happening Right Now!

So this is a thing in my city this week. The World Science Fiction and Fantasy Convention. Lots of famous folks have invaded my space. I guess the term sasquan is based on sasquatch, which happens to be the college mascot of our local community college. LOL! George RR Martin is supposedly around somewhere. I'm hoping my son will decide to go on Saturday and take a few pics. They'll be handing out the Hugo Awards on Saturday evening. http://sasquan.org/hugo-awards/

I found this fun video for Sasquan attendees, but seriously, there's more to do here than drink. Honest.

So this is my new favorite song! It's all stuck in my head today. So inspiring.

How Not to Make a Sale

So I had the following conversation with a salesperson yesterday.

Me: I really like this, but you just have it in small and 3X. Do you possibly have any others?

Salesperson: Um...I don't think so. What size do you need?

Me: Well, I'm pretty busty, so I usually wear a M-L or sometimes XL, if something runs small.

Salesperson: Oh, she says, pulling out the XXXL. Well, you can probably make this work.

Um...just no.

And, by the way, F%#& you!

35 Years!

Just thought I'd post this tribute to Mt St Helen's. My mother was an artist and I remember at one time she had painted a beautiful picture of the mountain and a lovely lake reflecting it. That was long before it blew the top and side of it all over the country. I often wish I had that painting. No clue who purchased it, but I hope it was well cared for.


I'm Excited!! New BBC Mini-Series!

Oh, I found something to talk about! Well, not exactly talk about, since I haven't read the book yet. But I've always wanted to! Does that count? Anyway, I'll just show you! This just looks awesome! With The Walking Dead, Grimm, Outlander, Arrow and Flash on hiatus, I figure I need to fill the empty space with something equally weird and wonderful. Anyone else?
