I've had a few bees get in my room recently. figured they were isolated issues, killed them as they came, and ignored it. Now just last night I had one flying around, forcing me to sleep on the couch for only 3 hours. Woke up to find three more in my room.
I did not need this on top of all my other stresses. :|
At least we've killed the nest now. I think.
Soooo I'm tired and frustrated and will probably avoid internet socializing until I calm down.
I've had twin guinea pigs for the past few years, named Salt and Pepper (I usually call them Salty and Peppy). They've been very healthy for years, but now Salty's become Ill. Took her to see some vets, and they found a large tumor in her abdomen. They say she doesn't have much longer to live. Medication or surgery won't help her much either.
Thankfully she's still eating normally, so she clearly has the will to live, but I'm not sure how much longer that will last. I guess I can just hope for the best. If she gets any worse we'll have to put her down though.
Just another thing in my life that falls apart and all I can do it watch. I don't usually share this stuff, but I thought I'd tell you all what's up since I'm not my usual perky self today.
Just beat the crowds in time to take more pictures. I THINK I got pictures of just about everything across three days. Still being followed my Meiko. He tried to stick Pythor in every picture I take. Hit the vendors before they sold out. Got some more sweet Bionicle and HF parts. Also finally beat the claw game. Got a decent bundle out of that. Stayed at the Bionicle tables for most of the convention, which was probably the most fun area anyways. Called Waffles and Kothra on Skype. We all said hi, though the reception was pretty laggy. :C SO MUCH SINGING AND DANCING YAY. Someone got videos of most of that. THEY BETTER UPLOAD THOSE SOON. DO THE BIONICLE. Sumiki's hat pile reached about 20 hats without falling over. (Pictured) Xaeraz and Sumiki bring Toxic Waste Bunny to life. Xaeraz becomes a zombie whilst attempting to Walk The Dinosaur. Turns out a convention with bronies, furries and homestucks all in one place isn't as horrifying as it sounds (also whovians). So much love for the ears. <3 Nidhogg refuses to stand once again. >:C SO MUCH DANCING We got some nice group photos of (most) everyone. Not on my camera unfortunately. Left shortly after the public. Thunder storms were approaching. Hopefully they weren't too bad for anyone else. Probably wasn't bad at all and I missed the closing ceremony for no good reason. :<
You guys were all SO MUCH FUN to meet in person. <3 I would love to show up next year, but no guarantees.
First off, is anyone else staying at the Residence Inn in Chantilly? That's where I'm staying.
The lines were insane. They reached max capacity around 2 PM and the fire department had to usher the rest of the line away. I am ever so thankful I registered. Not being in that line was worth every extra dollar. Got to meet Laughin'Man. didn't get to talk much, but it was great seeing him. C: Xaeraz photobombs my mocs. ;_; (Pictured) I should probably get pics of the rest of the BZP crew, if they're cool with it. Bought a BZPower shirt from Bionicle Raptor. It's awesome. Getting stalked by Meiko. THE KOTH was present for an hour or so. If you missed THE KOTH you should be FILLED with REGRET and SORROW. Definitely met Ballom this time. Sorry again for missing you yesterday. Got to meet Lego Obsessionist. His present MOCs were really neat. Jedi Master J. was present, but no one I spoke to seemed to have noticed him. Lychir did get his Mii via StreetPass though. If you saw me and I missed you JMJ, I apologize. D: Had a lot of SPAZZ DANCING sessions with the BZP guys. That was totally fun. Nidhogg kept falling over. Had to fix numerous times. My self-moc fell off once and exploded; nearly fainted. We put it all back together though. Lots of people liked my hat and ears. ^w^ They kept calling them cat ears though. ;_; Still getting stalked by Meiko. Crowds finally left. Yard Sale begins. Spent an hour at the yard sale acquiring SWEET LOOT Left soon afterwards. Felt completely exhausted. Totally worth it though. <3
Car battery died as we tried to leave Lynchburg. The very nice hotel staff and mechanics got us running again. Three hour drive to Chantilly. That was like, almost half the trip from New York. Quickly dropped luggage in rooms and then left for BRICKFAIR. Met Brickeens at the door on the way in. That was awesome. <3 Bricks led me to the Bionicle area where a bunch of other BZPers were. Of names I can remember: Meiko, Aanchir, Lychir, Sumiki, Avohkah Tamer, Takuma, Kanohi Zaath, Architect, Xaeraz, Daiker, DeeVee, Black Six. Also Spotted Nukaya and ToM Dracone but didn't meet them face to face. If I forgot your name I am VERY SORRY. Got my MOCs set up. By some miracle they actually stayed standing. Hopefully they still are. Had some pizza (pictured, why do I always look sleepy in pictures? D: ). Had some more pizza. you can never have too much pizza. Brought mustache. Took a few pics of other BZPers wearing it. Daiker and I helped DeeVee set up some barriers round the tables. Lost my goodie bag in the process. Not too upset about that, but I left some spare parts from my collection inside. If anyone happens to find it, tell me. Was followed pretty much everywhere by Meiko. Some lady who goes to anime conventions thought my wolfie ears were cute. c: Note: get a tail for next BrickFair. Had to leave early, missed laser tag. Ah well. Hope y'all had fun there. Back at hotel, Still wearing the hat and ears.
Hopefully TOMORROW will be JUST AS AWESOME if not AWESOMER. <3
