Nothing new happening! Just thought you should know XP
I was asked to be a maid of honor at a freind's wedding! Then she said I couldn't be "maid" of honor, because I am old and married T..T
So.. I am... MATRON OF HONOR! Bwahaha!
Sounds old.

I bought some games today. Our store was doing a buy 2 get 1 free deal on ALL used games, so I couldn't resist. I bought Viewtiful Joe (this game is pretty damn hard) and Chaos Legion (confusing but pretty) and... SOMTHING ELSE! Christmas present for my husband :D
We are bad with things like christmas, though. We will end up opening all of our presents to each other waaay before christmas.. and then on chrsitmas morning, we will only have 1 or 2 things to open.. lol

I got Akuma's boots in today for his Dread Pirate Roberts costume. They look very nice! Now all I have to do is finish his shirt, finish my dress, and figure out what to do about... his pants XD
My mother in law is visiting next weekend. I need to put a zipper in my dress, and I don't know how. I think I will wait for her, since she has awesome knowledge about sewing stuff.

Zoi.. I miss you :( I hope your sabbatical is restful.

I hate organizing parties. -..-*
I'm trying to get as many people to come as possible.. but with a few small exceptions, no one really seems that interested. It kind of defeats the purpose of trying to control numbers when I can't get even a tentative headcount. I'm telling everyone about it.. letting them know that it's on Fri, and that random people from all over are going to be coming in.. letting people know that they can crash and hopefully things will spill out onto Sat...
Providing food and booze XP
I guess holding Halloween parties on Halloween is a bad idea XP
Everyone already has somthing better to do, and I thought a month would be enough time in advance.
Hell.. it's almost NOT enough time to save up for drinks& food, etc. I'm very thankful to the people like Puu who are coming who have already said they would help out by bringing food, etc.
So far... I've had definite replies from:
~~Puu& Mizzimere
~~Cosmic& Drew
Bossman from Austin and Niko Neko are going to try to make it.. and then I've told a few people at work... >..< But that's it. Niko& Puu are going to try to make it in on Thursday ( I think? ) to work on cosplay& sewing stuff. I don't know when the caravans from Dallas are planning on making it in... But it's starting to sound like Saturday on Cosmic's caravan (thought I wouldn't know -..-* ) and Goat's arrival is going to depend a lot on work.
Bossman just making an earnest attempt to come makes me happy, because it doesn't really seem like a party without him.
And I THINK that a co-worker and his girlfreind are going to try really hard to make it over, and I'm looking forward to that.
So... I'm looking at 5-8 people on Friday? More on Sat? Maybe not?
Argh. I know Outlaw certainly sympathizes with me. It's just too damn hard to get anyone to come out and visit. Between Akuma's work schedule, and my constantly shifting hours, we rarely go up to Dallas, so it's not like we can just hop up and visit everyone. Every now and then someone from Houston tries to get me to go over there, but the car trip to Houston is just long enough that we have to be able to commit a whole weekend for somthing like that... and lately we just haven't had the luxury. I feel like I am in prison down here and no one cares enough to visit. Hell.. it's hard enough getting a civil word and 5 minutes of someone's time when I'm up in Dallas anyway. Boardie gatherings are kind of like taking a box full of ferretts, shaking them up in a vat of sugar and caffiene, and seeing what happens.
Everytime I get frustrated, I just want to call the whole thing off.. but there are still 3 weeks until the party, so I've just got to give it more time, and see what happens. Whatever the case, though.. I think I'm just going to give up after this. This will probably be the last big party I try and throw together, b/c it's just too annoying. The wedding was much easier! You can guilt people into coming to a wedding. XP
Poor Niko. I hope your planning for next week is going a lot more smoothly
Oh.. PS- Goat.. please let me know how many are riding down with you, if/when you find out
