crazyfurries: (real life)
State of the Car: Turns out it WAS NOT THE FUEL LINE AND THE IMPENDING DOOM OF $$$$ OUT THE WINDOW. The fuel filter had corroded away to rust and salt. $60 and a half hour later I was out of the shop.

State of the Conprep: 45% packed, most of which is due to A) Stuff in the Wash, B) I need some of this stuff in the morning and C) I'm not packing until after work tomorrow and staying the night at a friend's house. I've got to track down a lid for my embroidery floss box.

State of the work: Bread and pasta tomorrow. It looks like we're good on ravioli at least.

Me? I'm tired and i've got cats to look after for another day or two. G'night all.

...oh, and I'll be slow at things online for a few days. CONTIEMS SOON.
crazyfurries: (erba?)
Today's pasta count

66 orders of ravioli

55 orders of angel hair pasta

45 orders of fettucini.

Grand total of 9 hours, and goddamn I've got to get on breads next week. I pray and hope that the ravioli isn't too popular in the next week or I will be fucked for pre-musecon Prep.

Thanks to this, I do not have enough energy to actually converse with anyone online tonight, meaning the threads I should be tagging into won't get anything, possibly until sunday night. (9 hours hand-crnaking pasta will do it)

AAUUUGH.

Trying to make hakama from internet instructions and not doing so well.

...really debating just finishing up my freakpants and wearing those instead along with the kimono and kosode, instead of the hakama.

Obi is all that's left if I give up on the hakama.

Either find an old tall wicker wastebasket or see if there's someone who can build a simple wooden backpack of sorts. Otherwise I'll just have to pack and stash a large amount of stock in the car and carry small amounts through the con each day in the wicker picnic basket.
