Hey, a lot of my posts are turning into Friends-Only.  Just post a reply or add me as a friend, I will add you to my list.

Bitter Lake Trailer

This is simply amazing and requires spreading the love.  It will premiere at Eurofurence this year, but will hopefully come stateside eventually.  There simply are not enough words to say about this, but this awesomeness needs to be spread.

Being Regular

This comic got me thinking about something that I've been on both sides of, and that's being a regular.  When I use to work at a gas station, I had all of my regulars.  I knew what cigarettes they smoked, and knew a little bit about them to be able to have some good small talk.  Now, while I was working at the gas station, I just happened to be a regular at the Subway across the street.  They knew my order as soon as I walked it.

Nowadays, the only place I'm a regular is at my coffee shop, called The Cup.  It's good that I'm a regular there, because what I order isn't even on the menu (It's a White Chocolate, Irish Cream Latte).  The only question I get asked is if I want it hot or blended, as I do change it up when it starts to get warmer out.

I was wondering if anyone else out there is a regular somewhere, and do you get that nice, warm, fuzzy feeling when someone knows just well-enough to know what you want, and make you feel a little special when you go there?

(And, yes, in case you haven't noticed, I'm trying to actively use LJ more often now. :P)

Strengths of Character

So, as part of a ongoing training program at work about mental resilience, I had to take a 240 question personality test to determine who the different "Strengths of Character apply to your personality.  Basically, it ranks the 24 strengths from best to worst as they apply to you, with #1 being the most applicable, and #24 being the least applicable.  It's suppose to give you better insight into yourself, so you know your flaws and can work on them.  Figured I'd repost them here.

I'm also curious about some feedback.  For those of you who know me, would you say the results are accurate?

The Hangover (FCN Edition)

I got back to Maryland late on Monday and have been having problems readjusting to the grind of daily life.  But, work is slow today and I actually achieved something that resembled sleep last night, so I think I can make a good post about.

This was my first FCN, and I must say it was a fun con, albeit it a smaller one.  But hey, I like the smaller cons, it gives you time to spend more time with people instead of the hectic run-by wavings that larger cons provide.  I must say, I really can't talk about the con too much.  I was either so busy, drunk, or hungover that I only attended one panel and one show.  Although, I did have one of the most epic hangovers of my life, so it does provide a good story and sets the tone for the con (for me at least).

EDITED - Apparently, LJ decided to delete half the story... it made no sense.

The Land Before Time

So, tomorrow morning, i.e. in less then 12 hours, I'll be leaving to head to Michigan.  In case some of you forgot or didn't know, that is where I'm originally from.  Tomorrow, I'm heading back home to drop Scout off with my mom and then I'll be heading back down to Detroit sometime on Thursday, TBD.  I'll be at FCN for this weekend and then I'll be heading back home for two weeks to spend my birthday and Easter with my family and then the next day, driving back to Maryland.

Now, for those of you who are non-believers, my home and hometown are prehistoric when it comes to technology, which means I'll have to go to a public terminal to access the internet, or my brother's or sister's house... and then they have dial-up (yes, it still exists) or some other form of crappy internet.  So, I'll be out of the loop for a while as even my cell phone doesn't work there.

Peace 'til later.
