Well, here's an icon I don't use very often...  
Despite yesterday's meta-missive, I am enjoying Hawaii 5-0 thus far, including last night's episode featuring Baby Sammy. Is it wrong that when he was in peril I thought, "Well, he'll be okay. He's Baby Sammy! He's been through worse..."?

Friday and yesterday's biking confirmed that the two mutant black squirrels I saw last year are still living in their respective trees. Also, remember my mentioning the group of rogue white wedding-release pigeons? They've formed a flock now—there are about 8 of them instead of just the three I used to see. Pigeon Power!

Yesterday I also visited a website that someone (probably astrothsknot) pointed me to ages ago. It's the work of a very snarky Australian man named David Thorne, whose level of misanthropy makes Gregory House look like an amateur. The man has made passive-aggression into an art form. Missing Missy (lost cat posters) was one of the cleanest ones—I sent it to the kids and several of you today! I also recommend Simon's Pie Charts, Party In Apartment 3, and Strata Agreement (aka, "The ducks in the bathroom are not mine").

Three weeks 'til Wincon! Here's hoping we don't get any surprise snow...

OMG! Missing Missy - a friend linked me awhile back as I have been/am a graphic artist. LOL!

May have to download 5-0 just for the baby!Sammy bits. *sigh*

\o/ Wincon!

You probably sympathize then with the number of people who keep trying to get Thorne to do graphics stuff for free, as if he has nothing better to do. Or a living to earn. Did you click on the "Simon's Pie Charts" one? It's hilarious!

Are you going to Wincon? Yay!

<i.You probably sympathize then with the number of people who keep trying to get Thorne to do graphics stuff for free</i. That's why my RL bestie hooked me up.She sued to get to hear my constant bitching about that very thing. :)

I'll have to check out the pie charts. :)

<i>Are you going to Wincon?</i> Yes, actually I've been thinking about if we could share a shuttle. I get into the same airport as you about thirty minutes sooner. Since it's late anyway I'm thinking the wait would be worth the savings. :)

The shuttle sharing would be great!

I was kind of stymied by the airport->hotel arrangements, because the other Wincons I've been to were at airports with a courtesy shuttle. That's a great amenity in my book, not just for the expense but also for the hassle-factor. Plus, I had visions of our hotel being farther "in" Chicago (you know, near the Loop, where everything's happening and is also incredibly expensive).

I'll be coming in via Frontier from Denver. I wish I could have gotten a direct flight, but there's maybe one of those a day and it's not at a convenient time. Now, SF to Chicago (or Portland or Seattle), it's easier to find a direct flight. *sighs over being in the flight-path boonies*

Not sure why they made the choices they did, but from what I can tell we don't need a shuttle reservation. Let's plan on it then, if that sounds okay. :)

My flight is awful but it was cheap. :( Sac to LA to Dallas to Chicago - on Southwest and it I'd been a bit more savvy I could've probably spent $20 more and shaved off one stop. *shrugs* Done is done.
