Dead Dog Cat

(no subject)

Yesterday started early, with me rushing out to the hospitals. Finishing that, forestcats and I went to pick up my new suits from the tailor after alterations. While we were down in the garment district, we did some recon for buttons for several aloha shirts she's been making, some for me, and hopefully some for her as well.

(On that topic, my sisters were vying for one of the incomplete shirts, trying to persuade forestcats that each of them were worthy of it. Later, before the buttons were on, Spencer from DM was also smitten by the same shirt)

We found a variety of buttons of various colors and qualities; packaged them up and they sit, awaiting their fate on clothes to be made in the future.

Then, we drove up to my parents, and visited with them for a bit, chewing the fat, and some food, to boot.

Then, Dungeonmaster. The show went well; the house was blessed with a number of new folks, including a group of teens who found one of our cards at a game shop, The Last Grenadier. They seemed to enjoy it. Also, Enrique's cast for Max Goblin Presents were present, to get an idea of what the show is about, and to emulate it at their show. Several of the players onstage were from that cast, including Enrique as Max Goblin. It was a generally good show all around.

Afterwards, we stayed to talk with the cast about the upcoming show at LACon IV, which con is only a week and a half away. We're going to have a table for DM T-shirt sales, but I haven't a clue how we're going to be able to man it. Oy. We may have to man it only on Saturday, and not Wed-Fri.

I finished the evening, watching A. Brown's show Feasting on Asphalt, which was amusing in that forestcats was perturbed that Alton skipped Nebraska, and chose, instead, to highlight Kansas.

Oh, well, it was amusing watching him failing to get a fire on Pike's Peak.

A long time ago, I decided that I really liked some Hawaiian-style shirts that I saw for sale online. I'd never really looked at aloha shirts before, which I attribute to them not being for sale globally at the time. I really enjoyed the shirts, and I still have them. This led to me purchasing a shirt here, and a shirt there, and then, out of the blue, my beloved spouse, forestcats offered to pick up a pattern for them, and make me some.

This offer made my trips to quilt shops with her much more interesting, as I would keep my eye open for topical fabrics, or curious patterns that I could wear. She's made me some, here and there, and then since my birthday this year, she's been on the warpath, with new shirts coming off the assembly line every week or so, since.

I'm very proud of her, and pleased, and excited about the high quality of her work.

I'm such a lucky guy!
