The vet also gave me a prescription that I don’t have to fill, and is meant for an emergency situation. I think I just kinda psyched myself out a bit seeing as how I’m about to leave them alone when I go to Fanime.
I feel kinda bad because the vet was expecting an emergency situation when I just wanted her to get a check-up. Oh well, all’s well that ends well. Off to work on Fiona :)
Fanime is this weekend and I’m taking two days off from work. I get every other Friday off (which is this Friday) and Monday is a Holiday, so I only need to take Thursday and Tuesday off. I’m going to have a 6-day weekend, and it is essentially a vacation.
Fiona (Adventure Time)
Barbarian (for a friend’s party xD I’m totally counting this)
Our Highlander team, specifically our Spy, was featured in CommFT’s top ten plays in April. I was (and still am I hope) on a team with so much talent and we get along pretty well, I feel like I let them down due to my inexperience. Someone recently posted a good article on how to play Medic better, and after Fanime I’m going to take some time to try to do some mentoring (more specifically, be a mentee) and read articles on classes and maps. I also need to work at being more brave on the mic. I’m afraid I’ll say the wrong thing.
Last night I came home to one of my rats having weird noises in her breathing. It sounded a bit like gurgling, but when I picked her up and put her in my hood (she loves it there) she immediately stopped and minutes later started bruxing. Before I put her back in their cage I held her up to my ear, and her breathing sounded normal. When I checked on them this morning neither had any weird noises. Kahlua (the one who is scaring me right now) has been full of energy, her fur is still gorgeous and her weight is fine, but the fact that I’ll be away for 5 days (Thursday night through Tuesday morning) makes me nervous. They were born in late October so they’re a bit over 6 months old, and I don’t want to lose them because I didn’t take care of them.
I really want to watch our Spy kick ass but the video is 7 minutes long and I’m at work xD
I also want to listen to videos of sick rats so I can at least have some idea about the noises Kahlua was making last night, and try to figure out of this is an emergency situation.
I need to work on costumes, I need to do laundry and dishes, I need to pack… this is going to be a very long 3-day week before the convention/vacation weekend.
Since Fanime is this weekend I will have gone way too long w/o TF2. I would think that I could go through withdrawal if I wasn’t certain there will be a bunch of cosplayers there. I’m bringing Heavy and Sandvich. I’m not super-proud of the whole thing (particularly the lame boolets and no Sasha) but it is fun to run around in… there are so many amazing costumes out there ;_; especially the ones I saw from pictures taken at ACEN. Holy shit, way to raise the bar you guys!
So excited and nervous and it is only Monday morning.
I just realized that I don’t know if I’ll have the backpack done. I’m not going to commit to it because the costume and Cake are more important, but if nothing else I can make a drawstring bag out of leftover Sandvich cloth. The lettuce/olive colors are actually about the right shades :)
Anyway, I’m very excited for Fanime! I’m taking a couple days off work in addition to the Monday holiday so I’ll have a chance to relax a bit.
I want someone to talk to about this stuff but very few of my in-person friends know much about the game… so instead I’ll dump thoughts here.
Sniper has a last name : Mundy.
Mrs. Pauling? She is such a badass and I get the impression that she could take any of the guys on one-on-one.
Runs to the nearest town in Sniper’s van? Completely and totally canon.
Heavy has sisters = canon. Their names are Sasha and Natasha… okay so that isn’t canon but still I’ll be damned if it isn’t my headcanon now. Him naming his guns after them makes me believe they met with an untimely demise. Also not canon, but it works in my brain.
Messenger tortured and killed = awesome creepy in all the right ways, particularly the ones that help me love this game.
MEET THE MEDIC GONNA BE RELEASED SOON HINTED AT!
Why does this make me so excite? xD I’m gonna go read the comic again.
