This weekend and the next!

This weekend was pretty dull, but I blame that on the fact that Willy and I are saving up for next weekend's trip to the MD Renn Faire. I used to work there a few years back, and because we're always so busy and/or poor, we haven't been back since. It's going to be interesting to dig out all of my stuff, again. My corsets are all looser (I used to wear a 24"), so I'm thinking of ordering a new one sometime. I always buy my corsets from Timeless Trends. They're steel-boned under-bust corsets and they fit SO COMFORTABLY. I kid you not, they will give you a waist if you don't have one, and if you have ridiculous proportions like I do, (29" waist and 40" hips..) they will emphasize every curve. I used to wear an awesome red outfit, but I think that a lot of my accessories have been left at my parents' house, so I'll probably be going with my magenta and black outfit. The colors aren't exactly period, but who the hell cares?? I'll tell ya who. Really uppety reanactors who look down on me because I don't make my own costume and I'm wearing non-period fabrics and colors. But ya know what? I'm in it for fun. If people can dress like fairies, I can be a sexy wench with bright-ass magenta and black.

What sucks is that I have finished my books, and I didn't go get any new ones, so tomorrow might suck. I'll bring in Carrie, which is by-far my favorite by Stephen King, so hopefully my day at the green house won't be COMPLETELY boring. Not completely... ughghgh.

Speaking of work, I'm wondering whether or not they're going to renew my contract this week. We haven't gotten the influx of work that they claimed we would be getting, and I've already worked through 22 out of the 40 hours they asked me to work. I'm hoping they give me another 40. Hell, I'm hoping they decide to keep me forever, but I doubt that will happen. They don't seem to have enough work for three artists full-time, which sucks, but I totally need to find a full-time job. God I want one so bad.

Whine whine whine.

I whine because nothing much happened, today. Woke up, made beef stew for the croc pot, helped clean the apartment a bit, went grocery shopping, made some chicken salad for lunch at work, aaaand that's it. I really do hate wasting beautiful days like today was, but oh well. Next weekend will, I hope, be bad-ass.

As for the weight-loss front, I haven't weighed myself in a few days. I've been too scared. I'll get back on it tomorrow. Hopefully I'll still be at 124 or lower.

If you dig King, you should check out The Dark Tower series. The first book in the series, The Gunslinger, was one of my favorite King books.

I'll have to check it out. His latest books have been boring the hell out of me, though.. I thought Duma Key was a snore-fest.

As far as King's recent books, Cell was decent, but before that, you'd have to go back to Hearts in Atlantis to find one I could tolerate. Movie sucked because they cut out 2/3rds of the book, but the book was pretty decent.
