We had an absolutely FULL weekend this weekend. Our furniture delivery took a bit longer than I had anticipated. Apparently the setup of the bed wasn’t quite as easy as the salespeople had us believe (it never is!), but what aggravated me was that they forgetting to deliver some accessories to the bed. Oh well, it’ll be here later this week, and it wasn’t essential … but still …
Jim and I popped by OmegaCon for a bit Saturday. (at the time of this post, the OC site is down) We saw TONS of cool stuff, met lots of interesting people, and came home with a few goodies, cool swag, t-shirts and other geeky goodness, an Asian version of a Swiss Army knife, and my (early) birthday gift from Jim: a black on red Victorian/goth dress and corset set (courtesy of Lady Heather, who was fabulous dealing with all my questions and helping me with my dress and corset!). :mrgreen:
Among the many we met were: Dixie Hallows, 501st Legion (Alabama Garrison), Southeastern Browncoats, Fiona’s Fancies, Iron Age Remains, Lady Heather’s Fashions, Legendary Leatherworks, Pegasus Publishing (t-shirts), Renaissance Fashions, Brain-On (he and his girlfriend were very sweet!), Mark Helwig, Mitch Foust (artist of that lovely Dark Phoenix print I bought!), Capt. Comics (who sold me the Bleeding Edge Goth doll).
We had a great time, and I will DEFINITELY be looking forward to going back next year!
I’m pleased to say that things with Soldiers’ Angels are going well. I’ve been busy mailing out donation requests to a few local businesses who’ve expressed interest in the organization and/or donating, so hopefully I’ll be getting some help in that area. I will say this: Intuit’s (the makers of TurboTax) It’s Deductible online site has been a great way to keep track of out of pocket costs that can be deducted from next year’s return.
Hooray for helpful tools!
