So I put my shirt on backwards on Tuesday. I forgot to mention that. Or maybe I was thinking I didn't need to mention it. But I live to amuse myself, so there it is.
I tumbled out of bed and into my clothes in my rush to take the trash to the curb, and put my pink work t-shirt on with the big red logo across my chest instead of my shoulder blades. Of course, I didn't notice it at all. I was sitting at my computer in my office, working away, when my boss's son came in to chat with me.
After a moment or two of small talk, his brow wrinkled and in a puzzled voice he asked, "Um, Jay. Is your shirt on backwards?" It was almost a statement.
I look down and, suddenly very amused, replied, "Sure enough!"
He shakes his head and goes back to his office and I promptly pull my arms inside the t-shirt and spin it around so that it's on properly. Heh.
My boss's corn plant has flowered. I say corn plant but it looks like a miniature palm tree. Anyway, when she saw that it was going to flower this year, she was so very pleased, heh. Every morning when I unlock my office door, I am hit by the waves of its very sweet, almost cloying scent. I don't have a strong sense of smell so if I can smell it, it must be quite strong. The first day I thought it was my incense sticks, but when she pointed out the blossoms I realized what it was. It is a good thing I don't have allergies, because the pollen content in these two rooms must be insane. I keep the door open for good ventilation. Spreading the love, as it were.
Last night I went to the second DFWCG meeting ever. I signed a paper that will help to make it official, so this is a good thing. We talked about all kinds of different local events we could attend in costume, and that at some point we will start having our own events. We also discussed the website and what features we want it to have. Matt is going to create the site for us. Yay!
My favorite thing about the meeting was gathering with a bunch of weirdos like myself that love to dress up. In things besides normal, boring modern clothing. ^_^ It is just what I need to keep my sewing bug alive.
In other news, the annual convention that my work throws is rapidly approaching with over 100 tickets sold. Our building will be very close to capacity, heh. According to our site, it's only 14 days away, with artists arriving in 13 days. So the summer insanity of conventions is imminent, and oddly enough I feel pretty calm about it so far.
The special edition miniature for this year is completely, absolutely, eye-poppingly gorgeous. She was sculpted by Ridolfi, who I think has a crush on the subject (said subject is fictional, but since she's our mascot there are many fans with a crush on dear Sophie). He translated the 2d artwork so very well! I'm going to get several, heh. I think that she will easily be the most popular sculpt of Sophie done to date.
Faire this weekend. With the weather cooling, it should be quite nice. It may even rain!
