But I still stayed up way late and got no sleep because I was finishing costumes for Saturday!

But I GOT THEM FINISHED!!!!

Hey, remember when I posted about fandom-y stuff on this journal? (Remember when I posted at all?)

Spoilers for the Bones finale, 6x23, 'The Change in the Game' )

For those who've ordered from puresilks.biz, how long does shipping take & how much does it typically cost? It doesn't look like they do swatches either?

I don't know where the year's gone, but this coming Sunday is the Disney Princess Half Marathon! My friends and I are once again running in honor of our friend Mel (aka Fiver), who was diagnosed with ALS in 2007. You may remember Mel from our Glee group at Dragon*Con this year, where she did a bang-up job as our Artie. (Last year she was the Lincoln Memorial in the Night at the Museum group. Her sense of humor is quite undimmed, as you can see.)

My friends and I, aka Fiver's Flamingos, are again raising money for the ALS Association of Georgia. ALSAGA is a wonderful organization that provides incredible support for those affected by ALS, including Mel and her family. From their website: "The ALS Association Georgia Chapter aims to empower, care for, and support all those living with ALS in Georgia, while advocating for a cure." Last year, we raised over $2600 for ALSAGA!

Please, if you can, would you donate $1 for every mile we are running? That would be 13.1 miles for $13.10. And even if all you have is $1 total, every little bit helps. 100% of your donation goes to the ALS Association of Georgia. Not one penny goes towards administering this group or paying race fees, etc.

Here is the donation link. (The page says it's for the Walk to Defeat ALS. That's the correct page, and your money is going to the right place.)

Thank you so much!

You can find out more about Mel here: http://www.projectfiver.com/

I just checked back through my LJ, and apparently I didn't do one of these last year! Boo on me!

So here's what I made in 2010!

List with pictures underneath the cut! )

Plans for 2011:
1. Something historical. 18c, Regency, 1860s-- I'm not sure which yet, but I've got fabric for all.
2. I badly want to do a Community group at D*C. I think we could rock their Halloween costumes. ([livejournal.com profile] lordofhaladin would make the most amazing PeggyFleming!Chang ever, amirite?)
3. Whatever we end up doing for SDCC Masq.
4. Fire Nation Suki, and finish Rogue's Piandao. Legend of Korra is coming this fall, so this SDCC should be pretty big, ATLA-wise.
5. Sekrit group costume Brittany S. Pierce as Britney Spears from her "Toxic" video. Even more nude-colored mesh and rhinestones!
6. Sekrit costume for [livejournal.com profile] barbossas_wench's group.
7. Actual Renaissance Hawkgirl! Not that [livejournal.com profile] aviendiora's dress wasn't amazing!
8. Whatever costumes Rogue wants/needs.
9. ETA: How did I forget this??? RAPUNZEL.
10. Whatever comes up!

Winning at being a Grown Up: Today I got my car serviced (routine maintenance) and went to the doctor (sinus infection, bleah), both of which I'd been putting off for ages. Yay!

Failing at being a Grown Up: Trying to go into work on my day off and discovering when I got there that I didn't have my badge and keys. I still haven't found them. Boo. :(

I just finished making my 50th Pennyblossom. A couple weeks back, EW.com posted a Big Bang Theory gift guide, and they linked my Pennyblossoms! ("For: Someone who knows who Radiohead is.") That led to a very nice uptick in business, which has been pretty awesome. It would have been more awesome if my actual job hadn't suddenly gotten crazy busy at the same time, but whatever, I can sleep later.

Speaking of sleep, I have an 11-mile run at 6:45 am, so I should really go to bed. (I never thought I'd get to the point where 11 miles seemed blessedly short, but here I am. Last week was 19 miles. That one was tough, NGL.)

I AM SO LEGIT IN LOVE WITH COMMUNITY YOU GUYS, it's not even funny.

(What I have watched so far: the four episodes that are on Hulu. And a lot of clips. And some picspams.) Uuuuuugggh, why it gotta be at 8 pm on Thursdays?

(I worked 12 hours today and I am fried. Can you tell?)

ETA: Someone needs to go to D*C dressed as the Greendale Human Being. I would scream and run in the other direction, but someone should do it.

HAY GUISE. This is a drive-by post to let y'all know that you should check out all the charity auctions going on over at [livejournal.com profile] foresthouseeyes-- there is some really awesomesauce stuff being offered, from signed copies of books to art to mini top hats to fic to a guest appearance on a podcast. All funds raised go directly to [livejournal.com profile] foresthouse to help her pay for badly needed eye surgery. (It is 100% certain that she is a real person-- she is a dear friend of [livejournal.com profile] cleolinda-- and she is having real surgery that her insurance really won't pay for. It's sad that we have to say these things, isn't it?)

Anyway, I'm offering two Pennyblossoms and people are bidding on them! So yay!

Most of the auctions end on October 30 (Saturday) at 12 noon Eastern, so bid soon!

Yesterday (10/10/10!) was [livejournal.com profile] sirrogue's and my sixth wedding anniversary. Our present to each other was a new kitty friend for our Ginny-cat (and for us)!

Meet Parker:

IMG_3984

That picture is Parker in a nutshell-- she's very curious and loves to climb and jump and see "what's up there." Her name at the Humane Society was Raven, but she's such a little cat burglar, her name couldn't be anything but Parker. She had Rogue wrapped around her little paw from the moment she jumped onto his shoulder and tried to climb on his head. She's sequestered in our second bathroom for now; introducing her to Ginny will be...interesting.

More pictures! )
