They took an innocent panda and turned it into an assassin!

I keep posting little personal updates on Facebook, but not having anything substantial enough to make an actual post. So let me summarize.

–Graduation! A big deal. Ann Curry’s research!fail has since made Jimmy Fallon, NPR (panel two). I did get the correct diploma, although it looks substantially less expensive than the plaque I got in middle school for being good at math.

–I have since had 3 dreams (and counting) about being back at Wheaton. Apparently my subconscious doesn’t believe they’ve really let me go.

–Last weekend: Balticon! Friday through Monday, a moderately-sized and well-funded sci-fi convention. The artist guest of honor was the guy who does Schlock Mercenary. The food was free, decent (including cereal and bagels as well as cheese, chips, and chocolate, plus a variety of teas), and kept coming. And the panels and programming were delicious.

–Also, the whole family dressed up in homemade costumes from the Red Dwarf episode “Quarantine.” Twitter has a shot of my brother, complete with Mr. Flibble. We got laughs, applause, and multiple requests for photos, especially when all together. Good times.

–I discovered, and became a huge fan of, Better Off Ted. It’s funny and clever and quirky and geeky and the characters are delightful. (A Veronica: I want one.) As it turns out, it was canceled three weeks ago. I object.


–This weekend: A-Kon! Friday through Sunday, though I fly out to Texas tomorrow. All in the name of promoting the first issue of Emeralds.

–I really need to get my act together and make a classy This Is How To Commission Me page.

–Next week: seventh anniversary of Shine! So, naturally, I’ve blown through almost thirty pages of The Eagle of Hermes over the past week, rather than putting together a Special Commemorative Anniversary Thing. Maybe I can call EoH the Special Commemorative Anniversary Thing.
