I went to the Powwow at the museum today, and it was fun! I mostly wanted to go to some of the workshops and talks and such, but I missed a few of them. I caught the end of the one on the medicine wheel, and the end of the one on traditional harvest stuff. I did catch the whole one on traditional food, but a native dietitian, which was neat, and most of the one on corn as well, and in general I learned a lot throughout the day, which was my goal. The only things I bought were a taco and some quilt raffle tickets for one of the indigenous support services places that has some cool programs.

Then I came home and fell asleep for a while, because it was quiet and I hadn't had tea (and I even survived the day without much of a caffeine headache, wooh!) The kids were having a sleepover, which meant pizza for dinner, and then I did a little bit of RP for Underworld, and a whooole lot of tag modding for Yuletide! We've gone through maybe... 1/3 of the tags, but we start with the easy stuff so that doesn't mean too much. I'll do some more before or after game, or both. But for now, I'm ired and my allergies are acting up (I hope), so it is bedtime!

My hair has been engreened! Just the underneath.

I've tried to green my hair in several previous occasions, but this is the first time I've dared to bleach it. So far so good, though it is still wet and I'm not blowdrying it twice in one night! But I am pretty excited.

Work was dumb and annoying today but I persevered.

I think that's it! Tomorrow is poutine and knitting. Not at the same time.

...is how long I think it's been?

Yesterday I finished reorganizing space at work. On Tuesday when I go in, I'm going to finish up (for now) with that collection.

I wound up volunteering to run a one shot on Monday. I have the characters ready and a basic idea in my head.... that's all I really need, right? People seem excited, anyway.

Played Arkham Horror for the first time in aaaages tonight! It was good times.

In other news I have some kind of annoying rash around my neck? I dunno what the deal is.

I'm up too late, again. Time for a shower and sleep forever! The rest of the fam is going on a day trip tomorrow, and I'm hoping to get some dyeing done during game. Wererogue rearranged the living room today too, and I like it but it keeps catching me off guard. It's like it's divided into two spaces now instead of one.

Probably she'll see this somewhere, anyway.

I made cupcakes, and I got her one of those dodgy Chinese-manufactured ~assymetrical hoodies~ from a facebook ad. It was not as bad as some of the reviews said (reviews I only looked at after I'd ordered, because I'm clever that way), but not all I'd been hoping for. It is a cotton polyester blend, in that it is mostly polyester and probably there is some technical standard minimally being met? The arms are tight but it is wearable and she seems happy enough with it, anyway. I guess I could have gone a size up. Knitting was nice tonight, and I'm glad I cajoled her into coming out. I'm about 2/3 of the way into chart 11 (of 13) of Pulled by the Sunset.

Work was BUSY today! Not only with self-assigned projects, but just lots of people in and around doing various research things. And more of the same tomorrow! I'm hoping to get some things Put Away tomorrow, and I need to contact one of the grad students to do the same.

So much to do, so little time....

Time for bed! Before midnight! I mean, not by much, but I'll take it...

I dunno, I'm just reaching for titles at this point ;p

Work was good! Everyone wants to do flotation this week though @_@ busy busy! N is back for a few days, but he is going to Quebec City at the end of the week, so who knows when I will her back on any of the stuff I did while he was away. Or the people he asked me to contact, etc. Whatever. I finished a draft of the 'this is how the database is meant to be used/work' thing that I put together, because I think that is more useful than just a step by step guide for doing specifi things. It's so variable. We do need to work on some 'translation' guides for data entry, but I might ask my counterpart at the other facility to assist with that.

I also had some good conversations with J about his post-doc project, which is putting together a project portal for various kinds of heritage research, to put researchers in touch with communities - the communities suggest the projects and the researchers - students and faculty - can pick from various ideas and know that a: they will have support for the research and b: that since it is community driven it is muuuuch more likely to be competitive for grant-based funding. We've been tossing around with ideas for SA (some of which are Really Cool), and also brainstorming other sorts of things, and he keeps saying things like "we should write a paper." hah :V Who has time for original research ;p

In non-work news, it is Longpig and Wererogue's anniversary today (also my mom's birthday), and they went out to dinner, and I got to take care of the kids. Which included making a quick dinner when I got home - cheese and tomato omelets with cucumber slices and snap peas. wooh! They both ate everything, pretty much, so I'll call it a win. And they were pretty good at bedtime. Other than that, I finished weaving in the ends o the baby sweater, which is now "blocking" before final assembly. It's cute but heavy! ahh well. I am going to have back out of the actual shower though - a Toronto day trip is pricey, and the place where the shower is being held is not convenient from public transit.

I should go to bed. I've been really bad about getting in to be before midnight lately. I was on track for it tonight but something something the internet happened.

Night all!

I'm getting worse at this. And too busy! I could do a social thing every day from today through Sunday, but iight die.

Last night I went yarn shopping and then out for food I didn't need, and it was nice but I had stuff I needed to do after and didn't get to touch the dyeing I wanted to do :( Maybe tomorrow? Tonight is game, so maybe after that could get some things started, hmm...

The eclipse was definitely the height of my work day. I made a pin hole camera and got a bunch of other people to try it out too! But otherwise it was a dull, mundane day, and I was sleepy and under productive.

Oh well, better luck tomorrow! Maybe I'll be less distracted by cool astronomical events >.>


-------

Oh hey I thought I actually posted that yesterday? But I guess not. Okay then! Well it is no longer eclipse day. It is just a mundane Tuesday. I got things done at work. I got a lot of things done when I got home - I got some yarn scoured and mordanting, I wove in the ends in my larp shawl, I Dealt With walnuts in various stages of decay - tossed some, bagged some for dyeing, and hung some to dry downstairs where I can maybe... eat? them? later? I set up some discord channels (though the pokemon invite had expired, d'oh), and I did a bit of knitting. And drank some cider. Tomorrow I am going to a yarn shop in the evening with a friend, and maybe doing some more dyeing stuff, I dunno.

Now I am going to drink the rest of the cider, and go to sleep.

Night!

So this was a larp weekend, and it was completely rad! I spend an hour yesterday crying alone in a cabin I had locked everyone else out of - good times! NO really though, I eman it. I got caught up with a random magical effect that made me think that another character was my dead husband, and then I was SUPER UPSET with him that he hadn't told me he was alive and had just been hanging out workign for one of my in game friends - so of course I was mad at her too :V And other people thought that I thought that I was married to the other character (who is a very orcish orc). After I explained why it was creepy that he wanted to have sex with me when I thought he was somebody else, he later came and apologized for it, which was surprising and awesome too (also all in character orcs aren't generally super discriminating about who they sleep with when the opportunity arises). It was super great RP all around. And that was only one part of my game weekend! I did a sper fun mod and some other character driven RP and I don't think I touched the 'main plot' all weekend.

Today we gave a tour at work for the Archaeological Conservancy of America, which was busy but I think went really well! They all seemed super pleased, even though they were late and we consequently went overtime. I had some transit shenanigans and I wound up getting a drive home from a neighbour, which was very nice of her. And tonight I got to do a solo scene for Diablotin, which is nice because we missed game today and last week. So all in all a great weekend :) And I'm at he stage of the shawl I've been workign on t larp where it is so close to done I can taste it, so I am going to finish it up tonight or maybe tomorrow. And then I'll need another game project...

I got looking at the internet instead of showering or making this post.

Knitting earlier, and before that I went to dinner with two of my friends. It was nice, though the cider I had was not great - bitter.

Work was fine and I finished another project. I'm close to done the third, and can probably wrap it up tomorrow if I buckle down. I want to leave a little early,as I have LARP this weekend, but we'll see, I guess!
