Minus 4 daze (give or take) and counting

I had an extremely pleasant Sunday evening with fine folk, food and filk.

hsifyppah invited me over to for dinner at Casa de Lunder as deborah_c was in town from the UK on business. It's always a lovely thing to meet up with filkers from other parts of the world. And it's always lovely to hang out with motherinlawtree and capnblackberry for any a reason at all, so it was just bonus goodness all around. u_must_b_joking and I ran a few songs from our OVFF set list over the course of the evening and they seemed to go over well.

I got to show off my pretty new blue guitar, but asked capnblackberry if he could possibly raise the action on it a little since there is a fair amount of fret buzz. He took a look and advised me that I just needed to have the truss rod tightened - I didn't notice, but apparently the neck is slightly bowed, and it's the point higher up in the neck where it bows back up that most the buzz takes place. Sadly, I don't have a guitar wrench and the one he had was for his pretty, pretty Larrivees and it did not fit my Yamaha. Ah well. I'll have to pay a visit to Long and McQuade and ask for assistance.

HOLY CRAP OMG I FLY THURSDAY NIGHT!

*PANIC-FREAK-OUT-FLAIL*

How is it I have known about this for 2 years and I am NOT READY TO GO?

I swearz. This is the worst time of year to be taking time off at work. Everything is massively busy, I had three projects land on my plate last Tuesday afternoon with a due date of Oct 25th, except that my last day in the office before that will be the 20th, so my for realz due date is oct 19th and I still don't have the info I need back from the people I need it from to do my job and I'm starting to PANIC!

*tries to breathe*

I may have to do some telecommuting whilst I am in Ohio, because I really don't trust the guy that I have taking over updating the sales spreadsheet for the phone center to really know what he is doing, and I didn't even bother trying to train him to do the mail outs cuz it's really hard to train people over the phone, you know?

Also I am feeling guilty about leaving the kids for a week to go gallivanting across the country. I wish I could afford to bring them with me. But also, school, so no.

I have so much to do, why I am being so bad and playing on LJ?? *shakes head*

Back to work!

I am so sad that you won't be there! I was looking forward to talking SG1/SGA with you and seeing if you got the references in the songs!

Where are you going that you've been planning this for 2 years?

Have a safe, FUN trip. We want to hear all about it when you get back...

AH! Interfilk invited me to be a guest at OVFF - see look, they have me in their guest line up and everything!

I'm doing a concert on Saturday afternoon, and I'll be doing my SGA songs - 'Atlantis Shines' and 'John's Song' and a new one that I wrote that's not exactly an SGA filk per see, but was totally inspired by characters like Rodney McKay, called Sarcasm and Snark. Saturday night I'm hosting a TV theme filk, and will probably slip the other SGA songs I love in - like Rodney, oh Rodney and Planet with a Forest. HAHAH I love that song!!

*beams at you*

It sounds like an utterly fabulous, wonderful time and you SO deserve it. Hope the weather isn't too bad, it's taking a cold turn here by the end of the week.

We want pix and commentary on your return!

It is the plan, it is the plan
Hey, you haven't been rehearsing every Friday for three months just so you kin fall flat on your face.

Besides, if there is a more loving and attentive audience than filkers, I've yet to encounter them.

hugs!

We will be awesome.

Oh I am so happy you are going to be there, you have no idea...

Or, perhaps you do. :)

Great Big Sigh. I sooooo wish I could make it there ... but, being jobless, I couldn't justify it. [To make it worse, Taper Glenn isn't going either, so I couldn't get Crash Space or a ride down. :-(]

Right now, though I am seriously debating my future here in this [bilingualism required] town. I'm also having issues with a smoking allergy and Three Smokers as roommates. [:-(] It's possible I may move away just to ensure I don't wind up being rushed to hospital.
