I just bought plane tickets, I’m going to Dragon Con for sure now. No more waffling.
I had to fly out of SFO to avoid transferring, but it should be worth it for the peace of mind, especially on the redeye there.
… because the air conditioner is out of commision. It was going bad, and the repairman had to take out the parts that weren’t really working, anyway. He said that when we were using it, it wasn’t cooling well (which pretty much fits the behaviour I was seeing) and that it was on the path of breaking down completely. So by Monday, I’ll be out a chunk of money, but have a working a/c again.
For the time being, I went to Fry’s and bought a floor fan, and now we have a breeze in the house. It’d work, except that I really don’t want to have to leave my bedroom door open to get it working.
No, I’m not speaking in my native hamster tongue. It’s the air conditioner. It’s squeaking. It still works, it’s just a wearing belt or needs to be oiled joint or something that’s simple, yet will require a call to an a/c person to fix.
*sigh* Right before summer, too.
As I mentioned in passing before, I bought Meteos for the Nintendo DS. It’s scarily addictive, and for the entirety of AX, and a bit after, I would see falling blocks whenever I closed my eyes. I’d recommend it to anyone I know who owns a DS. Oh, wait… that’s none of you.
Did a bit of shopping today, ended up at Fry’s and saw someone I knew there. I was also briefly at Sunnyvale Golfland and saw someone I knew there, too. Didn’t see anyone else at the other places though.
After listening to waaaay too much radio advertising, I can officially say that the marketing gimmick of “Verb one, Verb two, Repeat” is now old. I declare it so.
Back from AX.
I can write a long entry now, while it’s fresh in my mind, I suppose.
