You may note that that tends to be a common theme of "When G actually writes LJ entries".  Anyway, I had a fabulous time at KASF after riding up with [ profile] galeran and [ profile] splagxna - conversation was lovely in both directions, although I was a little discombobulated for the first little while I was at the event (I mean, it took me like 20-30 minutes just to get dressed and my hair up, I think) eventually the sleep dep wore off a bit, I got things set up, and I had a good time geeking about the effects of fish sauce on food (it's a natural source of glutamates, lots more information here if you're curious) and convincing people that pickled tilapia was tasty. 

And I got decent feedback on my Ymir documentation, though I kept waiting for the East German judge to show up (Anyone? Bueller? maybe EGJudge is on LJ instead?)... now I just have to write up stuff for the St. Catherine's tourney. I'm doing several dishes from Le Recuil, haven't entirely decided *which* ones (I have favorites, but I'm trying to make a coherent and appropriate supper out of them rather than just random dishes, and I'm still trying to track down exactly how many dishes and in what assortment that will be.)

Meanwhile back to the photoshopping... the graphic design stuff is the *fun* part of my job, so why I am procrastinating? (Oh, right, because I can't stand the sales rep this is for... yay passive-aggressiveness...)

Then again, that's the subject of like, *every* one of my posts. Guess I'm turning into an LJ voyeur... and here I've teased people about that.

But then, it's fall, so perhaps it's not surprising that I'm being quiet and semi-reclusive. Certainly I haven't been doing anything useful lately. Which is bad, as my "list of things I *want* to be doing" has gotten very long, and my "list of things I *should* be doing... or should have already done" has gotten even longer. Perhaps that's the problem. Too many directions, and instead I play Wii. (Which, as a side note, is a really fabulous thing - I'm perhaps 2/3 of the way through Zelda, same through Paper Mario, and haven't lost interest yet. woot??) And I've gotten a lot of reading done lately - newest "fandom", as it were, has been S.M. Sterling.. the Nantucket trilogy, and am 2/3 through the "Dies the Fire" series. They're fun sort of survivalist/medievalist fluff - the author was/is apparently a SCAdian and honestly, the whole thing sort of panders to the smug sort of "I bet we could survive if guns and electricity quit working" thoughts that end up in the back of a lot of people's minds....(admit it! they're there! though honestly? I don't think I'd be one of the lucky ones in those circumstances, if I'm being realistic). But like I said, they're fun...

Speaking of projects, we really need to decide what we're wearing for 12th night. I'm thinking perhaps a bit earlier this year - am sort of tired of houppelandes at the moment, so I'm thinking some sort of pretty gown and I have some thoughts for this gorgeous purple brocade I bought for N a couple Pennsic's ago - it's technically a pair of saris, but there's just enough for a cotehardie...and we have folly bells. ::skips merrily::

And of course I 'm still working on Ymir and Battle of the Oranges feasts - need to get in and get some library time, perhaps this weekend after we get back from Marinus this weekend. (No, we have no real reason to go, other than it's a pas, and I like those. And I get to hang out with the lovely [ profile] geniealisa and [ profile] puck_eater - yay!)

But perhaps most interestingly... or maybe only to me... As many of you who have been reading this journal for a while know, I've suspected I have some form of ADD/ADHD for years. But I've always been too scared to find out for sure... or figured I could handle it on my own... or... well, any number of things.  Pure arrogance, if nothing else (I should be smart enough to just... ignore it.) That's... not entirely the case. So I finally (finally! I mean, I've been talking about this with N for ages, if nothing else) called Duke.  Long story short, I'm scheduled to be tested the Tues before thanksgiving... and if I do in fact have it I'm going to end up in a research study for a year or so. ::shrug:: it'll be interesting to know one way or the other.
