Love You Long Time

Have I really not been on LJ for six months!?

Yowzah. Well, hi, everyone. I've been doing all my social media-izing on Facebook, which is great except for the shitty stuff, and I realized I wanted to not only check in, but get you up to date.

I missed a few cons -- InCon, LibertyCon, GenCon -- because of money or lack thereof, but it's mostly been an excellent con summer. Highlight was DragonCon, which was pretty awesome, except for the attempts to negotiate the dealers' area. Yeesh.

A little bit of physical distress here and there, most recently a tooth pulled this past Tuesday. Otherwise, health mostly good.

The new-to-me van is still giving me trouble, but we've narrowed it down, and hope to have it all taken care of this coming week.

Upcoming conventions are all go: FenCon in TX, ConTraFlow in New Orleans, OVFF in Columbus (I'm up for two Pegasus Awards!), WindyCon in Chicago/Lombard, ChessieCon in Baltimore-ish.

And, tomorrow night, Sept. 14, I'm doing a live streaming concert. Should be fun. (I believe you have to have a free account at Concert Window to see it, but the concert itself is pay-what-you-want, minimum $1, I get 70%.)

I hope you're all doing okay...?

I joined FB a few months ago because my boss got me involved in the tablet game Hay Day and I needed an FB account to link up with my coworkers who were also playing.

I tried to friend you on FB, but knowing FB the requests got lost in the junk file or whatever they have. I'm still trying to figure out how it works. I can friend some people but not others. I was surprised at the number of relatives were on there. Your stuff still appears when I go there and it's a breath of fresh air considering some of the *headdesk* posts from relatives and other people I know.

I submitted an entry in the ISFiC writing contest and waiting to hear back now that it's about time they said they'd announce the winners. I'd love to win, but I want to not be in last place more.
