First off, I hate talk like a pirate day. I think it's stupid. I'm so glad I didn't have to face the world today. Dressing up like a pirate is fine. But the talking like one... silly. Though the fact that the BBC did a thing on it this morning was kinda amusing.
So I did register for Arisia. And booked a room. By my lonesome. But I booked a King, so only people who *really* like me should ask to crash with me. I'm still not sure I'm going, but what's the worst that happens, I'm out $25 for my membership? I can cancle the room reservation up to 24 hours in advance. Which is kinda why I booked a room for Sunday too. 'cause I can always cancle that night of hotel room goodness when I check in. But I hate the "get your stuff out of the room by 11 and still want to hang around the con so tote it around" thing. Hate Hate Hate. And, who knows, maybe I'll have someone who wants to share the room with me and wants the extra night in the hotel with me by then.
Doing stuff like this by myself is weird. The wedding was weird, sure, but this, this is worse. Way worse. Makes me realize that I've never not been part of a couple in my (very short) adult life. I think it's very important for me that I'm not right now, but goddess does it ever suck.
Have I mentioned how much I love the latest Tool album? No? Well I do. And I have. And it might be the only thing keeping me from curling up in a ball and crying right now.
So much homework to do.... can't I just do art and craft for the rest of my life instead? I totally need a sugar moma.
