Dave (my office mate) was listening to the abovementioned music at work today. I have their CD that came out a few years ago. It's awesome. I need to dig it out so I can listen to it myself at times like these. =P

It snowed today. I'm damn lucky that the roads were decent on the way home. Traffic seemed to be backed up for miles heading out to Bellefonte. (I'm guessing there was an accident.) Luckily the people crawling along were nice enough to leave spaces for cars turning out of the industrial park every now and then, so it wasn't as if I had to wait a quadrillion years to make that left onto 150.

Carnivores started today. I walked there in the snow (which was peaceful and pleasant on the way up and freaking cold on the way back).

In response to my inquiry about the logistics of fitting a fake fur bikini, some friendly people on cosplay.com confirmed that it would be a good idea to use a normal stretchy one as a base. Thus, I went ahead and ordered one from some Yahoo swimwear store that had great prices and free shipping.

I have begun the process of wrangling my armor into place. I want to have the center piece (which is basically just a thick collar) done by the end of this weekend. It's quite difficult to work on time-intensive products of this nature during the week, so I figure I can just allocate most of Saturday for this project. The pyramidal pauldrons will require more work, both for the pattern design and construction, but I'm just itching to have SOMETHING that exists in real life, not just in my head. Because I have all the necessary armor supplies (craft foam, hot glue gun, styrene plastic, model spray paint), it seems logical to start there, and it follows that I should start with the simplest piece as well.

Cherry Poppin' Daddies? You and me both. Nat and Alice and I are rejoining Swing Club.

When/where do the Carnivores perform? I'd really like to see you guys sometime.

I just love how they sing about asshats and various other unpleasant subjects in such a bouncy and upbeat way. I should have mentioned that "Drunk Daddy" was the particular selection that I'd had stuck in my head. =P

Yay for swing club! ^_^

As far as performances go, we don't give any regular shows, but we usually put on an end-of-semester concert (last semester was an exception). At any rate, as soon as I know when and where the next performance is, I'll be happy to pass the info along.

Oh, and you should get a LJ account too, even if you just use it for comments and making a list of friends so you can see everybody's updates on one page. (Plus, if I ever write a friends-only entry, this way, you'll be able to read it. I don't really have any stuff that's that personal, and I like allowing everybody and anybody to read my journal, but I'd hate to shut out good friends if I really wanted to write something only meant to be read by people I knew.) You don't need an invite code any more, you don't have to write in your journal if you don't want to, and you'd get to have your cute little icon dealy next to all your comments. ^_^
