I am packed. A hell of a lot more stuff than I had originally intended to bring, but it essentially falls into three categories:
1.) Masquerade tech stuff. I brought my laptop and all the assorted wares that I need to be all over the sound tech portion of the evening, as well as extra cables and a cart so I'm self-contained.
2.) Masquerade entry stuff. All the bits that I might need to repair or enhance the various things that will be involved with the entry. Oddly, most of it is liquid.
3.) Personal stuff. The basics. Clothes, toiletries, restraints, sex toys...
I didn't bring the massage table. Aside from being bulky and yet-one-more-big-thing-to-carry, I'm not auvincing to do massages. Doesn't mean I won't, just that I'm not planning it as a specific activity. If I end up doing any, a bed will have to do.
My brain is already at Convergence. I'm basically useless at work. My left shoulder hurts from my mid-back to my neck to my elbow, I think I slept on it wrong. I want to go into the hot tub and just float for a while, but it will have to wait until after I check in and do some last minute prep for tomorrow. And after OC. I wish I had been able to get the full day off today. It would have made it so much more relaxing. As it is, I'm gonna have a lot crammed into a couple of hours. But then I suppose what else is new?
My mind is full of crafty stuff. Building things, making things, making really cool things. It always is this time of year. I actually start thinking about next year's convention and what I should be doing far in advance. Sometimes it gets ugly, because Halloween comes in there too, and then there are the movie shenanigans that happen year 'round.
And of course, there's the house.
Does is surprise anybody that as I'm rebuilding the porch, I'm building in features that will make it easier to do a Haunted House for Halloween? I'm building in piping for a fog machine, for one. Enhanced electrical outlets and routing for cords that I can hook up to a controller. And I'm strongly considering adding in compressed air supply lines so I can run pneumatic props.
Great festering naugahyde rumproasts, I want to leave. I'm booting out of here at 3:30, because I'm basically useless here today, and that will get me missing most of the crosstown traffic. I want to be with friends, I want to get hugs and smooches from hot babes, I want to soak in the hot tub, I want to see and do things and people that are fun and exciting. I want to see fun things and do exciting people.
