Jumps on the bandwagon...
This is so timely, considering Gen Con is this weekend (and I'm not going - *sob*!), and I've been watching a little Star Trek on TV lately ("Enterprise", and the last Star Trek movie). Wil Wheaton talks about the good and bad things about conventions and how he'd like them to be here (taken from lilithlotr:

Wil!!!! Hey, you aren't going to Irish Fest this weekend at all, are you? I'm planning to be there Saturday, though the forcast is calling for rain *pouts*

Wow - you're the third person I know to mention Irish Fest this year! Do you know/remember finabair? The one who used to work at/volunteer at Bristol? I think she's going.

I'm... vaguely considering it. *G*

There are kilts! And bagpipes! (because apparently the Scots come with the Irish? Anyway, it looks like I'm going Sunday now. The weather looks better. I guess if you go to mass at 9:30am on Sunday, you get in to the festival for free. Otherwise it's $15 a head.

And finabair is on my friendslist. I hadn't seen her mention it, but sometimes I am scanning and miss stuff.

Yes, apparently it's Irish with a sidedish of Scots... *G*.

Oh, you Catholics! *L*!

I'm... thinking about it a bit more. Perhaps if I do the lawn tomorrow, I'll fel okay about going on Sunday!

Oh, you Catholics! *L*!

For the record, my ancestors were protestant Irish. Scots-Irish presbyterians, to be exact. My husband's Irish ancesters were Catholic. It amuses me to think our kids are a bit of both.

It's getting mixed reviews so far ;-) Sounds like you are keeping busy. How's your job going? I can't remember when you started there, hasn't been too long as I recall. Are you still glad you made the move?

Hope you and your kitties are all well :-)

Hugs!

*L*! So, one thumbs up and one thumbs down, eh?

Pretty busy - mixed reviews on the job, too - *G*. I do miss Indy - I'm more of a town person than a city person, you know? And Indy always felt like a big town, rather than a city. But I like my little house, love my cats, and, if I could just get more confidence about it, I'd love my job, too - *G*. I just don't always feel up to the challenges.

Yes, one up - one down!

I agree about some cities feeling more like big towns. We lived in Sioux Falls for a while, 80,000 population at the time, but it always felt much smaller. Bruce and I like that feeling as well.

You're a dear! I wouldn't have pegged you for feeling any lack of confidence. I don't feel up to most of my challenges either. Oddly enough, I usually seem to do at least OK, and sometimes downright well. I've the feeling the same is true for you as well ;-)

I know this is getting monotonous to keep saying, but we really should get together sometime soon :-)

Hugs,

We should! But I've been a bum... hard to go out and do stuff when there's so much I need to do for my house.
