Luckie is so precious. This morning she waited 'til 7:10 or so to wake me up. She was climbing all over me, pouncing on my fingers, head-butting me, snuggling at various intersections... It was so nice to have some affection first thing in the A.M.
Of course I knew in the end I'd have to get up and fill her food bowl ;) Also filled up the piggies vegies bowl and uncovered the birdcage. Then I went to bed again.
I just took care of the hurricane refugee care packets I wanted to do. One of the barber shops downstairs (a classic black barber shop, BTW) is doing a special event Sunday, offering free haircuts and clothes to any refugees who come, and I decided I could pitch in too. So I went to CVS and bought $50 worth of stuff, including gallon-size Ziploc bags, and made up six packets: 2 for women, 2 for men, and 2 for kids. All the adult ones had practical toiletry items like toothpathe, deodorant, tissues, etc., plus memo pads and pens. For the women I put in tampons and cocoa butter skin cream. The kids got more creative stuff, including crayons, markers, drawing paper, colored pens, and little notebooks to write in. And everybody got Tootsie Rolls. I put the packets together and dropped them off at the barber shop, where they were happy to have them.
Once again proving you don't have to go to church or believe in any particular religion in order to be moral and do good in this world. Although I was raised as a good Methodist.
Just finished going over the Dragon*Con schedule and marking off what I want to go to. Now it's time to get dressed, which is fun, fun, fun! First stop for me will be the Outworlders table, so I can figure out when I am volunteering this weekend -- nobody ever got back to me on that -- and then at 8:30 the Gothic Journeys track (which which I'm not affiliated) is doing a thing on Lovecraftian influence on horror and dark fantasy, which sounded good. There's a Writer's Track panel on using the senses in your writing, also sounds good. And then I will wander around and have fun!
I have *got* to get somebody to take a picture of me in this outfit. Got these new tights on I got in Italy and they are CRAZY! And I have 2-3 in. chunk heels on and my hair "up" so I think I'm about 6'6" now. And wearing a tube top... :)
