Guys! Guys! It is almost time for VVC! It is one week until my birthday, and less than four days until I am on a plane! Nine hours after that
, I will be touching down in Chicago! (That -- that is going to be a long day. Also, I think that makes it too late for me to do the free admission at the Art Institute of Chicago that evening. Boooo.)
Due to grad studies trying to eat my brains, and getting stuff for academic conferences done, I am afraid I have not been making plans to see awesome people, or becoming aware of gathering-type things. Pretty much what I am saying is that if anyone wants to hang out and/or attend an activity/meal concurrently with me, they should let me know.
VVC is going to be FUN, guys. I am just letting you know.
OMG, I have so many things to do before I go. (For one, there was going to be a post about how Power Play
is the most awesome show you've never seen and you should watch it because there are going to be TWO awesome vids -- mine in Oh Canada and serrico
's in Premieres -- this will likely happen later; also, AHHHH research.)
Instead, however, I am going to go spend this day of the long weekend at the beach
, and hope the lake doesn't have the itch.
Did you know Saskatchewan has mountains? Okay, they're not really mountains, and the first time I went through Alberta I mistook the foothills for GIGANTIC MOUTAINS, but we totally made a ski hill out of old cars! We also flooded the little valley thing by it so that there is a lake-ish type thing with pike, and it is just deep enough that some years, if you overturn a sailboat, the mast will get stuck in the muck.Oh, wow, my hyperactivity is realllllllly bad right now. I have edited this post about
four five times now, and I somehow doubt the extra words are making things seem more sensical, and to come from someone you totally want to hang out with.
