Fun Night x2 (If Only "Funner" Was a Word)

Had an interesting start to the day though. Woke up around 11, feeling nowhere near tired enough to get back to sleep, so I got up, stumbled into the bathroom, went about my business, flushed, and watched in amazement as the water in the toilet got higher and higher :x I turned it off before it completely flooded, but yay anyways :p

The couple hours after that were spent trying to fix a problem I created by messing around with the ACLs for my external hard drive, which were eventually solved by enabling the option to show the "Security" tab in the properties window, and setting all admins to have full access to the drive.

As for the furmeet, it was both good and bad. I will admit that I'm slightly disappointed with myself for not putting on either my tail or footpaws, but hopefully this "Coming to the furmeet" thing doesn't end up being a one-time arrangement. Assuming it's not, I *want*, right now, to, before we leave London tomorrow, ask Cola if we can head over to the train station just so I can figure out how far away it is, and what sort of stuff there'll be for me to look out for to make sure I'm headed the right way. I did head out to Tim Hortons earlier, and on the way back went to "Hasty Mart", but there still appears to be a good distance between there and Via Rail :s I can't see minding the walk though, so the distance shouldn't be a problem. There's also the issue of "Would I be able to stay overnight?", but I can always ask about that too.

Anyways though, I bought a pack of 40 Timbits, which I planned on sharing with everyone at the furmeet, but between food already being ready / made (potatoes, chips and dip, and pizza), *and* one of the other furs asking somebody who work(s/ed) at Tim Hortons if the Timbits came premade in a bag or something, I never got around to it ;_; Oh well. I can always take them home and work on eating them there.

On the good side of things though, I didn't sit in the same spot all night this time, and actually talked. Well, more answered questions I guess. Specifically "What's your name?", to which I said "Karadur", when I gave my real name before, and also "Where are you from?" and "What are you?" The last question had me sort of confused until the word "species" was added, then it was just a simple matter of saying "Oh! Snow Leopard!". Speaking of which, the next entry I make from home *should* contain something I've wanted for a while. I'd post it right now, but I only have it in physical form, and it's not complete by any means, but at any rate you'll just have to wait and see ^^

Oh, and I also played a bit of Okami today, which has been... interesting, thus far. For one, I cannot draw a straight line with the Wiimote to save my life, so it's a good thing they added the "Hold Z" option, and also, the analog stick is screwed up. Pushing / holding right makes you move at a walking pace, even when you should be running :\ So perhaps I'll have to head up to EB Games while we're getting groceries on Thursday and see about buying another one.

With that though, I'm sure there's more stuff I wanted to write about that I've forgotten, but it's three in the morning again, and I'm not sure what time we're leaving tomorrow, so I should probably at least get ready to go to sleep :3

Home Again

With a distinct advantage over last time: the only thing keeping me from going to the furmeet again is not having a train ticket. I have a general idea of how to get from the train station to the apartment (which, by the way, should be about a 45 minute walk if I'm figuring things correctly), know where the specific apartment is, and also that I'd be able to stay there overnight, and head back to Chatham once again by either the afternoon or evening of the next day. So for now, I plan on booking the 27th of May off tomorrow (my name is already written in for the 26th), then on my next day off (Friday, last I looked), head up to Via Rail to see about getting a ticket. It may be a bit early, but I can't see why that'd affect anything. Right now, I'd like to try for at least one a month, but we'll see what happens~

Then upon getting home this afternoon, the first thing I did was checked if Michele had sent me an email about coming in this week, but instead had received an email from LiveJournal that said someone named "noirhearted" on here had sent me a message. Figured it was more than likely somebody that was at the furmeet, but apparently it isn't. *poke* Hi ^^ I'm not entirely sure who you are, outside of that you live in Chatham too, but a little mystery is always fun :3

As for goings on around here, outside of getting our new washer and dryer, there hasn't been much, apparently. Went out to Wendys to get some food around 8, and on the way back, Mom thanked me for leaving a note on the computer about how long I'd be gone for, but aside from that, and being asked what I did (I still haven't said anything yet, but I may), nothing much has happened. Well, Adam's 360 game collection has increased since I last saw it, and there were what look like a pair of work pants waiting for me in the mailbox when I got home, but yeah. Nothing significant, at least :p

Anyways, that thing I wrote about in my previous entry. What I only had in physical form, and would post once I got home. This <3 As the description says, it's done by Cooper, who I met both at the furmeet, and at some other gathering the night before. Funny story, really. Before I actually knew it was, I thought it was her, and all I could think at the time was "You aren't going to do my sketch now, are you?" One of the reasons I like to leave those things to email is because it gives me a bit of time to figure out the best way to say whatever, but she got up from the chair she was sitting in, walked over to and sat down on the couch next to me, and asked me "So what did you want again?" followed by something about stopping procrastinating, and at least wanting to have the sketch done before I had to leave. As opposed to trying to explain it right there, I opened the email, let her find the reply where I told her what I wanted, and she started drawing. The only things I remember hearing her say after that were something about it being all in pink, and also, I think "Floofy tail". Yes, floofy tail please <3

Then, the night of the actual furmeet (I'm not sure what the thing on Sunday night was for, but it was fun anyways), she brought in the completed sketch, gave it to me requesting that I scan it and email her the file (apparently her scanner is broken), after which I put it in my laptop (so that it'd stay between the screen and keyboard when closed), and right now, it's on my dresser behind me ^^ I really wish I had one of those plastic covers for it, but I might, so we'll have to see after I finish writing this and taking care of a couple other things.

That'll probably happen right now though, because like I said down below, I'm sure there are other things I want(ed) to write about, but nothing comes to mind, and there are some more pressing matters anyway~
