Otakon 2010: Female Roomates Wanted for Sheraton Inner Harbor Hotel [Aug. 17th, 2009|05:42 pm]
[Tags|, , ]

(Why yes, I AM planing way ahead.)

This is a room at the Sheraton Inner Harbor Hotel, which is connected to the Baltimore convention center. The room contains two double beds and is reserved for Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. Roommates may stay any combination of those nights and will only pay for the nights they actually plan on spending with us. The room is females only, and all roommates must be over 18. These plans are still somewhat tentative.

For Friday and Saturday night we plan to have 6 guests in the room (5 slots still remaining). Space in the two beds is available on a first come-first serve basis. The cost will be $34 dollars per person, per night. This cost must be payed to me in advance by April 30th, 2010. Paypal, cash and anything else we can work out is acceptable. This deadline will help assure that there are no complications when we check in and will make things smoother for everyone.

Everyone who stays with us Friday and Saturday nights is encouraged to stay Thursday and Sunday, but it's unlikely that this will be practical for everyone. Since the final cost per person will be the cost of the room ($200) divided by the number of people, I can't yet be sure what the cost will be until we get a full house. If all 6 stay for these nights the cost will still be $34 dollars per person, if 4 stay it will be $50 per person, etc etc.

If you're interested in rooming with us, or if you have any questions, feel free to reply here or send me an email.

(CLOSED) Roommates Desperately Needed for Otakon [Jul. 11th, 2009|04:00 pm]

I'm seeking additional room mates for a room at the Sheraton Baltimore City Center Hotel. The room is non-smoking, 284 sq. ft with two double beds.

We'd like to keep it an all-girl's room, but at this point are desperate for extra roommate to defray costs, so males are welcome. As of yet, we have no male roommates so the room is still tentatively all-female.

Price will change depending on the number of roommates, feel free to reply or message me for an up to the minute price. Ideally we'll have 8 people in the room, at the cost of $27 dollars a night. This is not guaranteed. We have the room reserved from Thursday afternoon to Monday morning, and anyone staying with us would be welcome to pick and choose the nights they stay, and paying only for the nights they need. If anyone is interested in ride sharing I'll be driving from Delaware Thursday afternoon and would be happy to have some company, no charge.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me. We need you!

For Hellsing fans attending Otakon, please see this post in hellsing for relevant events scheduled at Otakon this year.

It's probably just Swine Flu [Apr. 27th, 2009|12:08 pm]
I don't have epstein bar. I don't have sleep apnea. I don't have mono. I don't have narcolepsy. I don't have a breating disorder. I do have a perscription for Provigil, but it's not half as effective as a couple hundred milograms of staight caffine.

I have about 8 waking hours a day and about enough energy to walk one mile during that time, which is spent walking to class. I will not let them medically excuse me from the semester. I will pass my classes; all of them. I can't function like this forever, but I should be able to make it five more weeks. If I over do it and collapse, at least this should gain me enough lenience from the university to complete the work over the summer break.

Gears [Nov. 25th, 2008|02:04 pm]
The machine has many forms. Sometimes it’s all mechanical, just gears and cogs and all kinds of metal, like some kind of massive block of clockwork. Sometimes it’s modern and electronic; where everything is hospital white and clean. It’s always filled with people. Sometimes there are whole families together, or people band together to survive. Most of the time, no one knows how they got there. Most of the time, no one knows what the machine is, or who built it, or why. The machine never stops. The machine can’t be stopped, it will grind and grind no matter what we do. The machine makes pain. That’s what all the gears add up to. It will burn you, it will cut you, it will your snap your hand in between its gears, it will piece your skin over and over with its needles. It will crack and rend and slice you over and over and over. And the machine is vast., so immeasurably vast that you will never reach the end of the assembly line, at least I never have. But it is not inescapable. When you least expect it, an exit will appear. A hole in the wall that leads to blue sky. A sewer pipe draining down, down and away. Sometimes I escape. And eventually of course, I do wake up. I don’t think I have ever been inside the machine for more than an hour or two at a time, but who really knows how much real time passes in a dream? Remarkably, a dream catcher given by a friend has significantly reduced my visits to the machine. I’ll take an effective placebo over an ineffective drug any day.

If our ends are unjustifiable, why worry ourselves about the means? [Oct. 17th, 2007|10:34 pm]

Here is the first chapter of an original story that I'm pretty excited about. Read it, you'll like it. X-posted everywhere.

I'd love some critique on this, no matter how harsh. Any other thoughts would be very much welcomed.

Well, it's been a while, and the past few months I've been using this journal just to post in communities. But, now that I've got my writing mojo back, expect slightly more regular updates. In the next few days I'll be posting the first chapter of a new original story that I'm really excited about. For the moment it's titled 'The Pursuit of Grandeur', but I've changed that multiple times since I first came up with the idea.

Meanwhile, please 'enjoy' this Hellsing drabble. And by enjoy, I mean feel nicely depressed. In all seriousness, though, I'd really love some feedback on this fic. It's one of those things you write at one in the morning and then get really annoyed that there's no one to talk to about it.

(X-posted everywhere.)
