Night Off

Took it easy, heated up some rice and home made green curry beef for dinner, watched some mindless TV, petted the cats till they yelled to be let outside.

Made labels for all my BayCon art and stuck them on the back of the photos as instructed. I still do not have permission from two people to plaster their faces on the wall - if you know either of them, please have the nice person contact me. I don't mind being told "no", but "yes" would be nicer. :-)

Looked at what I have left from my bonus, and figured if it was 2x what was left on my car loan, I'd pay off the car. It was, and I did. That was the last interest-bearing loan I have out, now I can work on the 0% ones a little at a time.

Facebook is sometimes just plain weird. People I didn't think knew me have invited me to be friends, and as it turns out they either heard about me at a con or theater event, and in a couple of cases we turned out to be secret admirers of each other (not romantically, darn it). At the other end of the spectrum, recently I got an invite from someone who I hate so much I cannot stand to be in the same room with. Said person left the area, which is why you haven't seen my face on CSI:Axe Murderer Unit. We have a large number of mutual friends, so I'm chalking it up to accidentally clicking on the wrong face. Thank goodness for the "ignore" button.   

And I also have gotten a couple of hits on LinkedIn from people I never want to see again as long as I live. One is the former HR person for a company I quit - this person was my #2 reason for leaving on half a day's notice. I seem to remember #1 invited me - a year or so ago, before they canned his ass. I've blocked it out. But generally LinkedIn has been good for staying connected with people I have worked with and wouldn't mind working with again.

About BayCon, as it stands now I will be there Friday morning to set up my photos in the art show, and some of Saturday late morning/afternoon. Sunday we have a matinée, and have to strike the set after, so I'll probably just go home and crash. Monday I'll be there most of the day, at least till the art auction is over, which will probably be 2:30-3-ish.

    This morning started with a wee bit of WFH, just enough to download ffmpeg from the company-blocked site, try it out, read enough of the html docs to…
