life begins - me

Yay!

Okay, I'm horribly bouncy today so much so that I don't care that my boss left a mountain of crap on my desk last night. She's getting most of it right back 'cause none of it has anything to do with me! Mwahaha!!!

Only 2 days to go before I leave for Fusion!! I'm so psyched about this - I've already spent an obscene amount of monoey on it and am planning on spending more - it's my one holiday this year so I'm making the most of it!

The one thing that I think might backfire on Sean, the organiser, is that when Gina Torres had to pull out he scrounged for a replacement guest and managed to get Robert Patrick to agree. I'm fairly impressed with that but I'm a little miffed that he's suddenly become the "very special guest star" at what is being sold as a Buffy/Firefly convention. I for one probably won't be going out of my way to hear what he has to say and I'm not bothered about autographs or photos with him so... :shrug:

Anyways, back to the mass clearing of my desk then... *grin*

librarians - who'd be one?!

For those of you who don't know, I'm a librarian. No. Really, I am. And I'm sitting here, at work, in my jeans, trainers and Tweety Pie t-shirt having just come from a "re-branding" meeting where we're trying to come up with ways to convince the students to make more use of the library.

I "volunteered" to be one of the "young & funky" staff members who will be manning the library stall at the Freshers' Fair in September - we were kicking about ideas for themes we could use and is it so wrong that I kept coming back to using Buffy as a selling point?!! I mean, hell, they were in the library more often than I am and I work in one!!

*grin*

Yay!

The crossbow's made! Now all I have to do is attach it together (which I don't have the stuff for at home) and paint it and it's done!

Before anyone starts panicking and thinking I really am a crazy stalker type person with violent tendencies - it's a toy mock up which will not work in the slightest! It's part of a costume for Fusion (not mine though!) I'm actually having a real problem making a stake - who'd have thought they were so tough to make? I sawed up a broom handle but can I get this thing into a point? Can I heck as like! Anyone got any tips? (of course you are aware that if you can actually advise me on the perfect way to make a stake I may just have to edge gently away from you?!)
