Yeah, yeah, I know DucKon was almost a month ago, but I've been busy!

I've been going to DucKon for a long time and I've attended the Klingon Love Poetry with Heavy Objects at least a few times over the years, but I've so far been able to avoid participating. This year I was finally forced convinced to join in on the fun. For those unfamiliar with the concept behind Klingon Love Poetry, the idea is simple: "He recites; she hurls heavy objects and He Ducks!" (From one of the numerous DucKon program books I've got around here.)

Of course it gets more difficult when you're polyamorous and there are two people throwing 'heavy objects' (stuffed animals) at you. Thank goodness the Klingon Ambassador wouldn't let [ profile] tarrestrial simply tie me in place or order me to stand still. I at least had the illusion of a chance ... although with both [ profile] bookwurm and [ profile] tarrestrial throwing things at me, I got hit quite a lot. Hee.

I'll most likely participate again next year -- hopefully with more of my sweeties there to throw things. Yes, I really am a masochist, apparently. This will also give me a lot more time to write some appropriate poetry. What I recited at the event was written in about five minutes.

Resemblance to actual poetry purely coincidental )

Yay for visiting with sweeties! )

I've posted about our sandwich notes before. I had to share the two I've received so far this week. (Yes, I'm aware this is my second posting in the same day, please try not to faint!)

Look under the roast beef and cheese ... )

This is just an 'official' announcement that [ profile] tarrestrial are sweeties. There's really not much to add right now and I know that everyone kind of figured this one out ... probably before we did. That's all for now!
awfulhorrid: (polyflag)
It is obvious to me that I'm insane, why else would I go out with another person and potential sweetie? Well, [ profile] tarrestrial is very hard to resist, for one thing! She's a cute geek girl that hits a lot of my buttons. (OK, all of my sweeties are cute geeks that hit a lot of my buttons, although gender does vary a bit!) We met last June at a local coffee meet and as it turns out found each other rather interesting. We didn't connect directly then, which is probably a good thing really, but did start some mild flirting via LJ. Last weekend I invited her to our little game day gathering and ... well, things really clicked for both of us.

We've been talking all week via IM and email and yesterday we went out on our first date. Yeah, this is a very good match. I haven't officially asked her to be a sweetie yet, but I'm having a difficult time imagining that we're not going to go there.

Of course this is going to require a bit of time management and our usual lots of communication and misunderstandings are very likely to occur here and there -- that's unavoidable. To my sweeties: I'm sorry when this occurs and just ask that you talk to me first before making assumptions. I may gush about this NRE a bit, but you all know that I still love you very much. (Concerning NRE: I notice that after almost five years together, Fran and I still manage to be very disgustingly cute and snuggly together, often causing the cats to turn away or random strangers to tell us that we're having entirely too much fun grocery shopping.)
awfulhorrid: (Pyrite)
I've been holding off writing an eulogy to Pyrite at least partially because it's been painful to even try. This entry isn't to announce his death, but rather to talk about his life and what he meant to me. Before I do that, I need to thank everyone that sent us condolences, both here and elsewhere. Your words and actions mean a lot to both [ profile] bookwurm and me.

Cut for length )

I know that most people post their weekend update fairly soon after the weekend, but when have I never been conventional? I guess this is kind of a summary of the last half of May. I've had part of it written for a while and just haven't been able to finish it. I've been a bit tired lately and when you almost fall asleep at the keyboard, most of the posts look something like the cat might write. Oh, I'll also blame the cat. Bella's been an Official "Neglected Kitty" lately and has been in need of cuddling. This is often when I'm sitting at my desk and having a cat flopped in front of your keyboard and pinning one arm to the desk is not particularly conducive to typing.

Anyway, there was a month of May ... )
awfulhorrid: (Smile)
For those that didn't already know exactly how disgustingly cute we really are I'd like to share the fact that bookwurm and I usually write "sandwich notes" on each other's lunch. I had to share today's note ...

Ferret says "Chirrr"
Kitsune says "Mew"
Dragon-Bear says "Grumph"
Rabbit just grins
Dragon says "Growlf!"
Dog's pack says "Tickle tee-hee."
