Not all that bad

I thought today was gonna suck big time. It didn't turn out all that bad. I was tasked to attend a meeting in Taos this afternoon. Who the hell schedules a meeting for Friday afternoon?!? Sounds like your government in action. I drive 6 hours to attend 2 hours worth of meeting. *sigh* No time for lunch, construction traffic jams, accident traffic jams, crashed computers, slow computers, etc etc. I wanted to just get home and get online, but I suddenly got motivated and got my swamp cooler operational. I also did a little more prep work in the garden. I felt envigorated! So now I'm online, and ready to hit the sack. Woohoo! Fursuiting tomorrow! I'll let you know how it went!

Fursuitin?!? For Certain!!!

It's amazing how stuff happens after I publish. I was just about to sign off last night when I saw that Scruff E. Coyote signed on. He was a fursuiter I had met at Confurence that really had his sh*t together in terms of fursuit performance. Unfortunately, we didn't connect until we were both leaving. *sigh* such are cons. Anyways...we chatted until about 1 a.m. about fursuiting stuff. It must have had an impression, because I had a"furry dream." Unfortunately it wasn't a true furry dream with me as a bear or meeting a bear, but rather a dream full of humans at a furry con. We chatted about such pressing issues as where to eat lunch and if we should wait for so-and-so to come down from his room. The "highlight" of the dream was where I was wearing a new fursuit, but the tail had been sewn onto the front of the suit. Kinda like going to school in you underwear, or nekkid.
So today I did my fursuiting gig at the Rio Grande Nature Center. It was a whole hell of a lot of fun! I set my own 2 records today: longest time in suit...5 hours. Worst conditions to suit...90 degres F. I don't know how much I sweat throughout the day, but lets just say that it was A LOT! That was the comment I heard the most today, "You must be SO hot in that suit!" D'uh! But it's my passion, so it didn't really matter! I almost overheated once today. Right before noon I got nauseous. I immediately retreated to the visitors center and chugged a half gallon of water. I also opened up the suit to get some cool air on my body. After about 20 minutes, I was back outside greeting the public! All of this is valuable experience!
So that's it for today! *HUGS* to all reading it!
