Weekend Review [Sep. 18th, 2006|09:20 am]
Nicodemus
Saturday was mostly spent on chores around the house. That was terribly exciting, but I'll spare you the long descriptions here and let you imagine the thrills for yourself.

I also had a bit of time to spend reading about costuming, working on design ideas, and testing out materials. I'm starting to get a little anxious, because I saw the harbinger of Halloween terrors, a Spirit billboard beside the highway. That is the seasonal portent which lets me know that Halloween is far closer than it should be and I really need to start working on something... I've got a suit in progress that I'll try to finish up, this year.

On Sunday, I lent a paw to help fuelnfire and redstorm unload their moving truck. It went pretty well and relatively fast, for moving, since we had a decent number of furs schlepping boxes. Costuming is cool but it involves a number of inordinately heavy items. :)

And, finally, inflatable rats during WWI.

You're kidding! The calendrical situation is more dire than I had anticipated.

It is, I've been told, mostly so that we don't have to try and do it when there are five million other Christmas things to put up in November. But still...

Okay, I can appreciate the logic, but it's still just wrong!

Hey, glad to help out. Best of luck unpacking everything, though; you're on your own for that. ;)

And do let us know if you want to do dinner sometime, once things settle down a bit.

It was just such a bizarre image to see them floatin' around like patry balloons, that I had to share it.

And dancing bacon... Now, that's just silly. ;)

amusement.

I definitely read the beginning of your last paragraph as though you were attempting to unload a truck that was in motion.

Re: amusement.

To paraphrase a friend on a different journal: Moving trucks are a lot more useful than stationary ones
