dejana: (Cosplay - Princess Pluto)
Once again, I've been absent from LJ for a while. I pretty much only get on the internet at work these days, and with everything I have to do, that's not likely to change until after Anime North. My throat's been screwed up for three weeks now, my dad wants me to sing at his wedding in June, and I think I may have seriously hurt my ankle at Detour. Yay. No Brand Con is this weekend and I still haven't detangled my cosplay wig from Ohayocon. I'm almost afraid to open the box now.

Saturday I had an after-party BBQ for the Anime Detour staff. Sadly, the only day I could do it turned out to also be the day of the MISFITS trivia contest, but I still got a good turnout - about a dozen people came, many of them folks who'd never been to my anime nights or anything in the past. The setup I had in mind worked out well, with food and video games upstairs and anime downstairs. My sister is reluctant to unplug the Nintendo and move the second TV back up to her room, haha. There was a mini-crisis when the meat ran out, but a few people volunteered to run to the store.

There was a not-so-mini crisis when I made a stupid mistake and ended up with a little fire out on the deck. TJ saved the day on that one, but now I have to figure out how I'm going to tell my landlord that I burnt a small area between two of the boards out there. You can't even see it at a glance, and if I owned the house I wouldn't worry about it, but I don't. :\ Of course, I'm very lucky that's all the damage there is. There's a parallel universe where I don't have a home right now, and the awareness of that is probably going to sit on me for a while.

The same thing happened when I did that 360 into the ditch on I-35 a few winters back. For a couple of weeks afterward, I was stuck in a sort of fog of unreality, like any minute I was going to wake up from the dream where everything was okay and find myself in the hospital, or worse. I hate that feeling. Am I really at work right now? Which leg of the Trousers of Time am I really in? I'm trying not to let it ruin the party for me, since it was a great time despite the crises and I was very happy it went so well. They're good people, and great guests. For what other crowd can you host a ten-hour Saturday night party for twelve and have everything clean and back in its place half an hour later? We are such geeks, haha. I wish... I wish a lot of things.
