I've never been to a Converegence. I thought... oh... goody, it's in the SE,
I'll get to go. Nope. Not only do I have the complications of my job, now
that I am seriously dating someone; there is no way I could possibly go
without him. *sigh* Perhaps next year...

there's always next year...

So what's everybody that's not going doing?

I'm not going mainly 'cos I have tentative major travel/moving plans for this
summer + autumn and I really can't afford it...but I can't say I'm too upset
about missing it. I can't think of anybody going who I'm dying to meet, I'm not
a huge fan of the bands that are playing (well, I like Clan of Xymox, but I've
heard they're not so good live), I *really* detest the authors that will be
present...New Orleans would admittedly be very cool, but I think I'd rather go
on my own sometime. I just don't really deal well with big convention-type
things, I don't think, even if it does involve a bunch of goths. ;)

But...if I can figure out a way to go to autumn Whitby, I will be a giddy girl
indeed...

Much as I would've loved to go, I'm not.

It's not even the principle of the thing; it's that it's in New
Orleans, which is my One True Love as far as cities go.

What I'll be doing instead is no doubt far more intriguing than
attending a Convergence;

I'm getting new tires put on my car.

I'm going to Belmar for a couple of hours to watch the Atlantic shimmy to
and fro.

I'm going to sulk because Emily will be out of town with her family.

I'm going to listen to a new Slowdive bootleg that came in the mail
today.[1]

I'm going to maybe get a domain of my own.[2]

Whee.

I didn't even consider going, it doesn't interest me.
Large groups of people make me want to find a corner and not talk to anyone but
myself. ;)
I'm doing what I always do, go to classes and sit in front of a computer(either
at home, or in school...the joys of computer classes).
Yep, I'm interesting.
Let the good times roll! Maybe I'll go out on the edge and download a new web

The only one I've ever been to is the one I organized. :) I'm not sure that
even counts.

Spring Cleaning. Yippee! Plus probably regular weekend stuff... groceries,
laundry, maybe a movie. And rollerderby... I cannot miss rollerderby.

I will perhaps clean. Maybe unpack some more (those boxes repack themselves every
night- I swear it!) I'll probably just end up going shopping for a lot of household
things that I really can't afford, but have always wanted. Oh Yeah! I'm going to
paint all of my crappy old wood furniture black. Yup.

Then I'll probably go hang out at the local club on Sunday. I walked in last week,
the lights were going- but no music! They were alll watching The X-Files on the TVs
at the bar.

Makeing easter dinner if any body shows up.
I might go to my moms but I bet her boyfriend will be there and I really do not
care for him or how she acts around him.
Maybe a easter egg hunt in the cemetery down the street. At least those friends

I think your right, I keep finding more boxes full of stuff that I swear I
unpacked already. I moved 2 years ago ;-)

I think my easter is going to be an all-round non-event. No useable wheels (got
to do work to my car) and nobody's coming to visit. Oh well.

My sister is coming to visit for the weekend. Shes a frosh architecture
major and is so *fashionably* lonely and depressed at her school. So we
agreed to take her in and let her join us for Easter (always has been a
pretty significant holiday to our family).

Hubby was going to let me and a pal go to C5, but once I found out that
I was expecting baby #2, I told him that I needed to stay around here.
Also I needed to save some $$ and if I went to C5 I *know* I would have
little self control. I really wouldn't have gone though if he didn't
come with me...but then again it is Easter weekend and like I said its a
holiday that is very big with both our families. We also thought of
taking a family vacation (with AJ) to NOLA during C5 and possibly
attending some of the daytime activities that would be acceptable for AJ
to go to, but then we thought "Nah, need to save $$".


Someday though...someday.

Thursday - sleeping in...

a couple cups of ridiculously strong coffee, and a friend and I are heading to
Manhattan for a weekend of what I hope will be filled with unrepentant
debauchery and wanton hedonism...

Well, right now I am reading a.g. and missing my favorite
regulars right now.
*waves to the gals hoping they'll see this when they get back*

Friday, I will be in physical therapy and comparison shopping
with my mother. She's taking me to all the local stores to
price items I need for my posture and sunprotection since
the damned car accident that is STILL having an effect on
my life five months after the fact.

Saturday, I will be reading a.g. and hoping my favorite regulars
are having a good time. I will also be hoping that time goes
quickly until they get back. I will also be working on
finishing up my kickass bodice for the next SCA campout in
two weeks. I'm hand sewing the thing, so it should be done
by then.

Sunday, I will be working on crocheting that wool shawl so
I don't freeze my ass off at that upcoming event. I haven't
touched it since last summer and I merely started it then, so
it will be a miracle if I have it done by then.
Maybe some gentleman will take pity on me and loan me his
cloak ;)

I will also be attending Divergence. I didn't know if it was
happening tonight, so I worked on my homepage instead.
It's alot better than it was when I started it a year ago,
but I still need to add more content. It's getting there.

Friday: Went to see Love & Rockets. Very good show, they played a nice mix
of new and old (which, joy of joys, included "Yin Yang and the Flowerpot
Man"). All looked wonderful, especially Daniel who's wearing his age quite
well. ;) A great show, however, the opening band - a musical plague
called Lenola - sucked. I dunno if they were local (Philly) or on tour
with L&R, but they were the most mismatched opening act that I've seen
since Spiritualized opened for Siouxsie back in 1995.

Saturday: Spent all day listening to CDs and playing Diablo on my
husband's laptop. After a trip to the cinema proved fruitless (all Matrix
tix were sold), we hung out with some of the spouse's relatives who are
visiting from Manila.

Sunday: Plans include Easter dinner with more relatives and watching good
Sunday night TV like the X-Files and HBO's Sopranos.

Thursday: Hooked off work at noon and met Greg for lunch. Went to the One of a
kind Craft Show where not especially much of anything was one-of-a-kind. More
stuffed bunnies and children's flowery dresses than the eye could see. And
jam. A fuckload of jam. Ended up not buying anything... except jam, but did
find a few things I wanted, in particular a sculpted metal spiderweb necklace
where the web sits across the upper chest and the spider sits on one shoulder.
But at $135, I figured it might be better to think about it a bit first.
Thursday night we hung out with our downstairs neighbors drinking spiked
coffee and chatting.

Friday: I hate religious holidays. Not a damn thing open... watched a "freak"
episode of Jenny Jones about goths and punks that wanted to be famous, then
rented a couple of movies. Watched Homefries.. it's cute, not fabulous, but
pretty cute. Got cranky when my fave Rollerjam team lost to Greg's fave team.
(I'm addicted, what can I say?)

Saturday: Cleaning, cleaning, cleaning. Met a friend and his new girlfriend
for lunch, then wandered along Queen St looking for fabric. Bought books.
Didn't buy the $90 Leigh Bowery book I really wanted, but will probably go
back for it. (Bowery was a performance artist/club kid in the 80's and used to
appear in magazines like Details and Paper, back before they went all
mainstream.) Found the TaeBo tapes for sale at Blockbuster! Woohoo! Went to a
friend's place in the evening wher we ended up listening to Steinski and the
Mass Media, how old skool! Smoked pot for the first time in about 5 years and
it hit me like a ton of bricks. Had to stop for donuts on the way home. :)

Sunday: Dammit, I will clean out my closet today! And I've got fabric to cut.
Plus there's "Easter" dinner to cook. But it's just Greg and I so it won't be
a big fuss.

All in all, just a regular weekend, pretty much. Admittedly I have spent some
time looking at Ruhiel's and Christine's C5 photos and longing to be there.

Of all the things I miss about New Orleans, Blackened Voodoo
lager has got to be one of the most missed things... *sigh*
That beer is so fuckin' good. *snuffle*

I've been kind of a mess this weekend because I really wanted
to be there but I couldn't afford to go. Ah well.

/me returns to being a mess until tomorrow.

What I could really go for are some beignets... nothing like waking up and
walking from your hotel to Cafe Du Monde for fresh beignets and cafe au lait to
wake you up. *purrrrrrrr*

That'd be good, too... Hell, just being there would be enough
for me. But until I can get there, I've got a few boxes of Café du
Monde beignet mix stowed away in my kitchen. ;>

Lucky. I stocked up, and used up all the boxes within half a year. *pout* And
there ain't no damn place around here that sells beignet mix. *poutwhinemope* I
want beignets. *will have undying gratitude for anyone who brings them back
for her hehehe*

Last time I checked, you could order beignet mix and coffee
and stuff from the Café du Monde website, http://www.cafedumonde.com/
... same prices as their outlet store on Decatur Street and (I think)
Urselines Street. You just have to pay shipping.
Good thing for me, the A&P in East Brunswick sells "French
Market" brand coffee and chicory. Tastes just like the Café du Monde
stuff. :> Pity it costs about $2 more.

Catching up on my (now) 1425 unread messages (down from 2589.. that's
not half bad).

Friday: Celebrated my dad's birthday at a resturbar they have up here
called 'Mudhens', played the NTN triva they have there. Drank vodka..
thought about how bloody fun NOLA would be. Got depressed.

Saturday: Celebrated The Boyfriend's dad's birthday at a resturbar they
have up here called 'Seumus O' Brian's', was the only one who ate (which
was rather weird). Came home looked at Christine/Kermit's & Ruhiel's
pictures. Got depressed.

Sunday: Went over to The Best Friend's house for Easter dinner. Drank
rye.. was already depressed.

Monday: Going back over to The Best Friend's to watch Real Genius and
drink. (Probably get depressed ;)

Inbetween all these days I've listened to 'Louise' by CoX about 17
times. Why? Well #1. Xymox is (as if anyone out there didn't know) the
band performing at C5. #2. 'Louise' is my name, for anyone who didn't
know, and also for anyone who doesn't know, I hate it. (Damn whiney
name.. suits me right now though ;) So if I was there Ron would be
whining it in my face.

Plenty people have mentioned that they've got no problems missing it.
Well I obviously do. :) For a whole bunch of reasons probably compounded
by the fact that I've been to a convergence in the past and had a really
great time and now know most people even better since then.

Right at New Years a bunch of the 'merican net.goths came up and it only
reminded me in technicolour how much fun it is. Incidently incase you're
getting a strange picture of me.. I'm *not* a social person. I have no
problem going to a club alone, sitting, dancing etc.. alone all night.
But there it's different.. the atmosphere, the people, (the bands), just
bring me right out.

And I miss that. :(

Tetsab.

Hrmm... I'll have to look into that. Can't say I was ever really big on
chickoree coffee. *shrug* It's too bitter, I like sweet stuff. Yes, I'm a wuss.

Actually, i *did* whine it in your honor. Just ask ... ... ...

Whoever was standing next to me at that moment when i said:

"This is for Tetsab.", & went into an angst-ridden girlie-swirlie

"Loooooooooooooweeeeeeeeeeeeeze..."

Please excuse me (hopefully temporary) brain failure, as my head is
pretty screwed up right now, & my ears haven't recovered from the plane,
and my sinuses have gone belly-up, & ...
