Ah yup. >.<
Kiro improvised a stiffer cone out of an Ikea placemat (no, I'm not kidding XD he MacGuyers things regularly - our leash even has a separate loop for holding the poop-bag dispenser).

Ember was spayed today and is recovering well. She's not too keen on her turtleneck, though. (Use the "play" button from this link). And she has to wear it for 10 days! She doesn't know how much better it is than the Cone of Shame. :p

That said, we eventually came upon a table where a guy had three shallow wooden boxes of odds and ends - $1 per piece. So we hunted through and started finding already broken watches that were missing most of their parts but still looked kind of interesting. So we dug out 10 bits, and gave him $10, and went happily home... where the watch bits have sat in a paper bag for ... however long it's been.
Today, I finally got around to making an icon, at least. *points*, and behind the cut is the source photo. ( Read more... )
So, lesse. This morning was three sessions long when I thought it was two. That wasn't fun, especially since the one right before lunch was the first half of a hands-on demo: Build Your Own Adobe Air Help. Which... turned out to be kind of a misnomer, but I get the gist of how to do it, and could (especially if I resort to DITA Open Toolkit) do it. So. Lesson learned.
(Tonight, DW is working properly. This pleases me to no end.)
Hmm. What else. After sessions were over, bumped into someone whose Twitter I had been following since the STC Summit last year, and we got to chatting. And we chatted so long that we ended up deciding to go ride the monorail to Seattle Center together. Then she went up the Space Needle while I took some more photos (start here and go to the right in the little Seattle set browse box). Then we went for dinner at Vietnamese place. Very tasty.
Now I am catching up on my internets. Soon I must go and repack my suitcase as I must check out tomorrow.
Also? I got a tshirt from a software vendor (although I missed out on the Doc2Help owl socks, darnit) - tshirt says "RTF H&M" (which is "Read the F-ing Help & Manual", not the clothing store).
euh. Brain gone. If I pack, maybe I can go soak in hot tub instead of just falling into bed like I did last night. :p
I used less than suggested amounts for body and crunch, and still ended up wailing "my cream runneth over!" by the time I got it all in the (deep-dish) crust. Also 2 cups of feta was a bit overpowering.
Still! A successful endeavour, but one I shall save for special occasions, due to prep time.
Om nom tasty quiche. ^_^
What? photos? Oh, all right. ( click this way )
In unrelated news, I dropped my glasses today, on a tiled floor, and now have one crescent shaped crack on each lens for my trouble. *sigh* Fortunately, they are along the edges, and so do not impair vision, but still. Argh.
Look, look, a rainbow ends on our street!
Third rainbow is small and faint (mostly just green and violet) under the bottom edge of the inner rainbow.

And here for video of the whole arc from side to side - because it didn't all fit in our camera as a still.
Pikturs totally unedited guyz i sware!

There was much Avatar this year! Well done ones, too, for the most part. Even Uncle Iroh and a Firelord! Boo on Nickelodeon for failing to show, though. The "special event" this year was just an airing of eps 3x12 - 3x15, with the interview with M. Night Shyamalan as well.
Lessee, what else... we didn't get to many panels, as AN ones are always of dubious quality, with the exception of Iris -- but she was presenting on things we either hadn't seen or hadn't finished and didn't want to get spoilered for, so... >.<
The nominoichi (fan flea market) was ridiculously fun this year. We got in early and spent just over $100. ( The Haul! )
Plus a Ryuk (Death Note) UFO plushie from the dealer's room for $5! He's currently hanging out in Teak, the WunderEcho.
oh, I can't brain. ded by con. Try me again tomorrow. ^_^;
ETA: LoudTwitter failed to ship some of my comments, so for moment-by-moment reactions from con, check out my Twitter feed. (Of coure, Twitter was also having issues on Saturday, so some of the comments may STILL be missing. Arr. >.< )

A trip for groceries turned into a serendipitous purchasing adventure that resulted in the acquisition of a small army of Avatar: The Last Air Bender action figures. (We may have devious plans for them. Mebe. h'Only mebe.) Momo came to work with me.
Boo on Mattel/Fisher Price for not making any of the girls into action figures. Boo also on Toysrus.com for labelling the figures "boy's toys". Bah.
But Momo is cute, ne?
( cut for the pics! )
