5:57 pm - Dragon Con Shenanigans
I'm staying out by airport Thurs-Sat due to room kerfuffles. It's good though, I need a break from room party vs hotel security drama for a year.

Will be in for badge pick up at 4 tomorrow, then Trader Vic's around 8ish to snag a table for Tongo Hiti. Everybody come by, it's becoming the annual pre-con get-together place, and we'll all need to touch base since there's no centralized location for hanging out like Farshad or I typically provide

Friday, a bunch of folks are dressing up like Mad Men 1960's and wandering around, probably hit the Time Traveller's Ball, gonna check out the dancepunk band that night.

Saturday afternoon , I'm going to Lavapalooza, then cool out somewhere to watch the Bama/Va Tech game for a bit. Hellblinki Sextet is that night too, that was good last year.

Sunday, I've got a room at the Hilton, so I check out from airport hotel, got to Drive Invasion until the evening, then throw stuff in Hilton in time for our annual "Player Haters' Ball" in room viewing of The Masquerade.

Mobile # is, as always 3 3 4 3 2 2 1 8 6 8, text me to see what's up, it's impossible to get calls in downtown ATL sometimes. I also has a twitter "ninejacknine".

3:06 pm - Aiding free speech in Iran
It's a small thing, but something we can do to help. Iranian Security is looking for bloggers on Twitter using location and time zone searches. Floks change their Twitter settings to make their location Tehran and time zone GMT +3:30. If the whole of Twitter is Iranian it monkeywrenches that search tactic.

Meme this up and spread it around.

I know about 1960's garage music and psychobilly because of THE CRAMPS.

Rot in Peace, Lux

It sucks that ol' Jables is a clam though. :(

11:06 am - ATL peeps
What's going on tomorrow night for Halloween? I have no plans, and since a tank of gas is $15 cheaper now, I was thinking of heading that way.

10:07 am - ch-ch-ch-changes
I need a change. This involves moving someplace else. Various and sundry friends around the country, but in particular ATL, anybody got any job leads for someone who has spent the last decade running a projector, hustling crap on eBay, and generating no actual work experience or job skills.

Being able to lie like a rug as a reference would probably help, too.

I know you people are going to suggest I tend bar someplace, but I fear that I would be THE WORST ONE EVER, think "DRINK NAZI: NO DRINK FOR YOU!". Also: places probably like more experience than "throws parties that make people wake up the next day in questionable conditions".

Anyway, timeline is August-September or so.

7:32 am - LOL Republicans
G.O.P. votes against Mother's Day. They also ate up a good half-hour by having 30 of them slowly change their votes one at a time, 15 from Y to N, and 15 from N to Y. Wooo-hoo democracy in action. I hear the next step is to start holding their breath until they get what they want on the Supplemental Spending Bill.


edit: to be fair about 1/3 of the G.O.P. congress-critters are voting against John Boehner's retarded third-grade temper-tantrum strategy.

edit: closer reading showed me what really happened.

Vote 1 - The Bill
Vote 2 - The vote to table the motion to reconsider votes. The motion to reconsider votes only takes two people.
Vote 3 - The vote to adjourn the House, which seems to be brought up whenever all the current bills being considered have been cleared.

This ate up 50 minutes. They are doing this on EVERYTHING.

11:31 pm - The last of the Big Three is dead
Arthur C. Clarke dead at 90, no word on if there was a monolith at the foot of his bed.

1:48 pm - Calling all Frolicon peeps
If someone has a laptop with windows media player 10 installed that I could potentially borrow for the duration of the Thursday night party as a music player, I need it as a contingency/Plan B for music delivery. It can be an old hunk of junk, as long as it has WM10 and a USB port.

10:18 pm - Birthday Warning
chasing_amber already posted about hers co-inciding with frolicon, so fair warning.

My birthday is March 22, which is SATURDAY night at the con. People that are throwing parties, thrown them louder. If you get teh makeouts, smootch harder. If you are drinking, drink another. If you are chemically assisted, pass that shit. I want the hard-to-obtain but ultimately desirable "ADVENTURE INTO THE NIGHT" experience. I want to become possessed by the ghost of Hunter S. Thompson.

Let's all make it a night to remember AND regret.

4:17 pm - it's always a weird day
Even though he doesn't see this, happy birthday to my brother.

It's also the birthday of dawnmarie so this date is always happy/sad.

I would have started needling her today about hurrying up and getting hitched up with somebody, or the contingency plan for "not married by 35" would would have kicked in next year. Though she probably would have bumped that benchmark back to 40 by now.

Shit, her ghost is going to come get me for retroactively giving away her year of birth, LOLZ.

It will be a fabulous ghost, at any rate.
