It’s not looking good for Caroline’s summer camp today. The weather looks very nasty and if it rains, camp is cancelled because they don’t have a building or tent for the kids. On top of that, we are looking at possible Thunderstorms so I really don’t want her by the water with that going on. Of course this could all clear up in two hours and she’ll go to camp but it is not looking likely.
Peter is gearing up for San Diego. He has posted his schedule so far on his website here I am making sure that he has the things he needs so today is all about the laundry and the finding of things he needs to take with him like the X-Factor shirt he promised Len Wein about a year ago and the Beta Noir shirts for Chris and JK. A majority of today will be occupied with getting ready for San Diego. I am sending him with pictures so you can see the girls and me if you ask him nicely out there.
In DragonCon news, I am going to be in the art show. Yes, that is a change from about three days ago. So I have 44 days to get a few new pieces ready since that show is the “beginning” of my art show season. I will be showing the Wyrd Sisters. I am sorting out today the other items that will be there. Probably some fluzzies and maybe some new Gawblin Boys or possibly a Torchwood puppet set. Or may be I’ll finally get the Scary Godmother puppets done just to show. Whatever I am doing, I have to send off my worksheets to the art show directors today. Maybe now that we know what 11 is wearing I might do the 9, 10, 11 puppets for Doctor Who. Anyone know Matt Smith’s eye color? And a Jack and Sarah Jane would not be out of the realm of possibility.
I also have a couple of essays to write for a possible book. The topics are interesting but I do have to sit down and write them. I am hoping to get one done this morning and one done this afternoon.
There are times that I am reminded how different my life has been from a majority of USA. Living in a village with a lot of ex-military, commuters into the city, and blue collar workers gives one an amount of perspective that I don’t think I would have if I lived in the city proper. The Bowling alley is one of the big social meeting places in the area and we are accepted there at part of the village but occasionally something will crop up that shows me how different I am from the average American and we have a lot of those here. Ariel’s friends are in awe of my theater career along with some of the other things I have done over the years in connection to the music industry. They are in awe of her dad and the people we call friends and a couple that are extended family to us. Some of the women who bowl in the various leagues I bowl come up to me for advice on what to get their kids or grandkids for presents because I am hooked into the entertainment industry. For me these “famous” people that we know are just people that we know but to others we have connections to that mysterious world of fame. It just feels funny sometimes.
I am grateful that I have other places to take Caroline today since it really looks like camp is a no-go.
