Arrrrgh! I lost all my bookmarks on Firefox when the power blipped again last night ;____;

All of those hard to find buckle and button stores, and that Jack Sparrow Japanese doll thing ... and Bleach stuff. I don't even know why this didn't happen before when the power went out. I had Firefox running and everything.

Direct Deposit finally got settled at work, good thing too. Means I'll get my money faster and not accrue fees.

The power is still out at work, another day off for me, wee! I feel bad for the Oberweis people next door to us. All that melted ice cream, what a shame ...

Well, what should I do today? Laundry? Perhaps sew something? Maybe I'll start working on that Barbossa vest ... or the Jack bauldric. Or go to Mitsuwa.

Hey slappytanker, you still coming to Chicago? I heard about your back problems :/ Scratch that, looks like she's not coming. Hope you get well soon, babe!

So ... I went to Toys R Us and bought the SamCham video game. After taking a good hour to figure out Jin's combos, it's not too bad. The best part is when you master the counter attack and slash an enemy over 100 times, then you get a 100 bad guy invincible beat down to dance music XD It's like DDR, but less coordinated and funny. The opening sequence in somewhat live action looking Jin, Mugen and Fuu was neat but the game is SO filled with story I spent the first hour of it sitting through too much talking and loading and not enough ass kicking.

I really should get working on that bauldric ...

Uhm ... I finished the bauldric ^_^ Something finally went right. And the baldric looks so bad ass with the plastic buckle I'm using for it. It's the buckle from the crappy kids belt that came in the crappy kids costume kit that I bought because the compass actually looks cool and opens and spins around and is way way better than my cardboard piece of shit that broke in Denver. And the kids kit comes with a temporary tattoo, too.

So, after feeling rather happy about bauldric finish-ness, I decided to put on the whole costume. And I mean the WHOLE costume. This is the first time I've had the entire thing as close to being done as I want (except for the boots, but you all know my deal with those). Hat, coat, compass, sword, everything. I have to admit I looked pretty cool with that coat. It swishes so nicely. And my dad walked into my room and just started laughing and shaking his head. He should be used to this by now, srsly.

Yeah, sorry Dana, but I'm gonna be Jack at YCon. Keidy told me to. And walk around going 'Just Jack!' in people's faces. I have to. I need to go tanning before then ... luckily there's a tanning salon right next to work. I can go there when it's slow, lolz. Fake bake. No way, I'm not gonna do that. I'll leave that up to Ophelia to make me look properly Jack'ed out. Or I could get the spray booth insta-tan. That looks hillarious.
