And now it's time for...

A POST! Of STUFF that's been GOING ON. zomg

There's a lot of it. It's been a while, and I'm really busy this month.

I had an okay time at Ohayocon. A con report is in order, but I have yet to get around to it. Hopefully I won't forget everything by then... ^^;;

There's one last thing I can try to fix my broken hard drive, but at this point it's pretty definitely dead. My six-month-old backup of my data will have to do. I'm going to send it in to be fixed, since it's still under warranty and I want to sell it to a friend. In the meantime, I bought myself an ASUS Eee PC, one of those new mini laptops. I'd been planning to switch to a desktop/netbook combo in a few months anyway, but I can't afford the desktop at the moment, so I went ahead with the netbook for now. So far, I really love it. It's so light and portable, and can handle just about everything I need to do. I don't dare try Premiere on it, though, so vids are out for the moment.

The UFO Awards are rolling along. I'm behind on getting the nominee badges and some of the notifications sent out, but with two weeks left, I'm confident I can get everything squared away in time to start voting March 1st. I'll probably work on that some more tonight.

House-hunting and packing have been taking up most of my spare time outside of work. Our lease is up at the end of March and I want to rent a townhome for a change of scenery. After a lot of looking around, I found one I absolutely love. It happens to be owned by a retiree from my company, so he's particularly interested in renting it to me. :D I'm going to call the rental agency tomorrow and tell them we want to go for it. I'll have to learn to be a bit more responsible with my money, but I did the math and I should be able to afford it easily without too many changes. ^_^

Speaking of changes, I'm officially leaving the Anime Detour staff after this year's con. I gave my notice, or whatever, to the chairman and my department heads at today's meeting after thinking it over at great length. I don't fit in there, I'm never going to, and I've decided to face that fact and let it go. My dad's disappointed, but everyone else has been pretty understanding. Not being on staff will give me the chance to try other things. Like a Sailor Moon room party in 2010! :D I have big, BIG plans. :D I don't want the fanfic contests to disappear, though, so I'm technically going to be at-con staff in the Programming department so I can keep running those. And I told Ryan I'd chip in if they need extra help with the website. But that's it after April.

This Thursday I'm flying to Seattle for a friend's wedding (and hopefully to see [livejournal.com profile] killyoudead as well!). I'll be there in time for the bachelorette party, but my friend's pretty religious, so I'm not expecting anything wild. I still have to pick up a wedding gift, but she's registered at a few major stores, so that shouldn't be a problem. After I get back I have a few more nights of work, and then I'll be headed north for my godson's birthday party. Gotta fit in time to get him a present, too. >.o This year's his fifth, so as long as I remember my video camera I'll finally be ready to make the DVD of his first five birthdays like I've been planning. After I get a replacement computer. x_x

I've got the second Ouran set with me tonight, I'll break that open if I get my UFOs work done. I'm hoping to finally see Coraline this Wednesday on my only day off between now and March. @_@

So that's all the news that's fit to print. How is everyone? With all the above, LJ has been the farthest thing from my mind lately.
