PSA: You're probably going to hear a fair amount of whining from me about schoolwork over the next couple of months (more than usual, anyway). Said whining may include but is not limited to complaining about professors, other students, the music choices of same, the technological shortcomings of school equipment, the length of time it's been since I last did Flash, the sheer tonnage of work I have to do, demotivational posters, pleas to shoot me now and oh my god I am going to die.
*hem* Please don't take it too seriously. Regardless of how I talk, I am going
to do this.
In other news - the military accepted Dad's retirement today,* which is just plain weird.
Dad's been in the Air Force longer than I've been alive - hell, he was in ROTC when Mom met him in college. He's no Patton or anything, but I still have a hard time picturing him in a civilian role. He's been looking for jobs all over the place, but he and Mom are probably going to be moving to the Baltimore/DC area come late July. Assuming I don't find an OUTRAAAAAGEOUS job elsewhere (;D), I'll probably tag along. I really did like that area.poptartodoom
and I are actually making visible progress on our costumes now, despite my Bright Idea that sidetracked us for a couple of weeks. Now I just need to find a pair of friggin' red gloves. *rummages through Goodwill* ...Speaking of Botcon, I've been havin' me a thought. See, David Kaye (the voice of Beast Wars Megatron, among others) is going to be there. And me? I have a 3.75mm hook and half a skein of very, very purple yarn, and a penchant for making plushies.
(Remind me later and I'll do my "Fuck You, She's Awesome" list. Right now I have a date with high explosives.)
*The retirement was accepted yesterday. This afternoon a Colonel Whom Dad Doesn't Like called him up and asked him if he'd like to maybe delay his retirement to go serve a tour in Korea. I would've liked to be there when Dad laughed in her face.
