Went to the Fantasm staff meeting yesterday. Agh. The traffic was miserable. Road construction bad. Evil, evil road construction. Made it there nearly half an hour late. Sigh. But Matthew was able to get with several people he needed to, while I tried not to get in anyone’s way and got to smile and wave at several folks I haven’t seen since, hmm, last Fantasm.
The high point was going out for dinner at the Melting Pot with yakdog, girlsonfilm, weswilson, Andy-of-no-LJ, and Debgirl001. Excellent fondue, complicated cooking tong arrangements and dipping sauces, and good company. What more could anyone ask for?
Went home afterward to check on the little Hob and get our pimp/ho costumes constructed and as soon as we walked through the door, Hobkin launched himself into our arms (well, at my ankle really) and clung. Poor little guy. He was very lonely and very huggy.
Feeling not 100% still, and not having a heart of ice, we decided, reluctantly, that the best course of action would be to skip out on the “Pimps and Hos” party. Pook. Matthew had his “Cosmic Superpimp” ensemble (complete with obscene ray gun) all set out, and I was going to reprise my “Jailbait Girl” costume. But, considering how touch-and-go my immune system has been, immersing me in smoke, alcohol, and a very late night out just didn’t seem like a good idea. Sigh. Hate being sick.
We’ve got tickets to the Shakespeare Tavern tonight to see A Christmas Carol. Almost forgot with all the busy weekend things whirling about.
Ick. I know how blechy it is to have to miss stuff you’ve really been looking forward to due to health issues. The number of movies, parties, geneneral chill time, and even a Renaissance Festival a few years back that I’ve had to miss due to my stomach is truly–well, large.
Feel better soon, okay?
“Feel better soon, okay?“
Working on it! Actually, I’m much better. The racking cough in under control, but my energy levels are all fluctuatey. But, so much better than I was a couple weeks ago.
ick, hope you feel better soon. I saw you show up at the meeting but I didn’t get a chance to say hi, figured you’d be at the party later. ah well. next time 😉

You don’t smoke either? I don’t. I never have. I hate smoking. However, I do drink occassionally. Just mild ones: margarita, mai tai, pina colada, and white wine. I suppose you don’t drink? I think that’s good.
Nope, don’t smoke. And I really don’t like being around secondhand smoke. But I do drink. Pretty fru-fru sorts of stuff usually, and not very often–I’m an extremely cheap drunk–but I enjoy the occasional party buzz.
‘Twas good to see you –
I hope that you feel better soon!
Dinner was great… I’m glad we got to go together.
I’m sure we will do the pimps-n-hos theme again some time. Those costumes you have won’t go to waste.
I’ve been feeling a bit better (except for my stupid period), I wish you would get to feeling better, too! Being sick this long is miserable! And where did you hear “Pook” from? Last I heard that phrase was a long time ago in the movie “Thoroughly Modern Millie”.
