HBP

It seems to be all online lately, scenes popping up all over the place. Now, I know the movie is coming out soon and they need to pump up advertising, but what happened to, oh I don't know, commercials on TV? Every time I check my LJ there's a new scene posted by TLC.org. I've been really good and haven't watched ANY of them. Well, mostly because I'm still sewing my arse off. I'm SO CLOSE to finishing, it's all starting to hit.

My vacation was approved of, but I'm working 8 days in a row, maybe even more, just before we leave :( I should've taken the week before off, since my lady-wife is going to be here in Chicago for a improv class that week. But I didn't want to push it. I really shouldn't have to feel bad about taking a vacation. But now with the store moving and us having to reapply for positions, it's going to be really rough. I'm crossing my fingers that nothing bad comes up and I can still make it to D*Con :/ Besides, working 8 days in a row will guarantee me money for SF, so I'm really not complaining. Too much.

On the sewing front, today I'm tackling my last quilted leather piece and then some gloves (which are possibly the most complicated thing in these costumes). The last thing to sew is in_motu_proprio's final piece to her Ball costume. Cross your fingers that it'll all get done.

You have to reapply for your positions??? How ludicrous, wow. A shut down of production was so perfectly timed this year, so I will actually have two full weeks off, though D*C is unlikely this year, sigh.

If all goes well at D*Con this year, I'm going to plan dilligently for next year. Infinitus will definately happen, but seeing as how I got free registration and I've got plans to use my FF miles for a plane ticket, it'll be super cheap! So I'll actually be able to afford D*Con for sure next year.

Excellent, and you've got a year to plan and save too. I really wanted to do the Yule Ball at least this year, sigh ... but perhaps next year, as the horse adds 1K a month to our costs and it's just too much.

There is so much to do a D*Con, I have no clue which ball to go to! There's a pirate ball, a steampunk ball, the Yule Ball, a Final Fantasy Ball, pretty much every fandom I'm in has a ball! I guess I'll have to be a pirate steampunk HP character that ... has limit breaks?

It's a shame this economy sucks so much. I can imagine it being hard to sell a pair of shoes let alone a horse :/ I do wish you all the luck in that.

It is almost too much for us, LOL, so we figured to fly in for the Yule Ball, perhaps the parade or something, but we can plan for the next year.

Bed now.

This is going to be THE biggest con I've ever been to, and quite frankly I'm a bit overwhelmed. But I'm reassured by my lady-wife that we'll have a blast :)

Good company makes the difference, you will have such fun and get inspiration from all over.
