Hi, LJ. I see it has been over a week since I last posted. Oh well. Life has just been chugging away on auto pilot. I'll be heading to Portland today to attend the memorial service for my friend tomorrow. It certainly will be a pricey trip, but not much more than a con. And for a much much better reason. Perhaps that's been weighing down on me in my subconscious. I plan on delivering a speech and have been refining it over the past few weeks. While I would love to spend some time up there, I think that can wait for later in the year if/when I decide to go to Rainfurest. Yeah, even my desire to go to cons is not that great. The exception is Califur since it involves spending time with Al and Dex. It also will involve a train trip to get there which was free thanks to my credit card rewards.
So overall my mood is still pretty "meh." We had a nice dinner with a "new" fur and his wife along with Scritch and another couple. While it was a nice night out, I still felt a little detached. Last night was a little better when Scritch invited us over for tacos. There's nothing like "Sharknado" to make you want to laugh and cry at the same time. Laugh at how bad it is and cry for the number of brain cells being killed. At least I got to see my cousin's 1 second walk-on cameo. Now THAT'S something for your CV!
