I'm feel a bit badly because Friday was z_gryphon's birthday, and he's up in northern Maine. He was trying to get a bunch of people to come up for the weekend, but no one was able to go. I was hoping I might get up there, but this is my last weekend before I leave for California on vacation. Between being fried and needing to get some stuff done, I couldn't get away for two days to go up and back. I feel bad that I didn't go up to see him - he's my best friend and he didn't have anyone to hang out with on his birthday. And he can't go to AX since it is July 4th weekend, and as a reporter that's a 'big news' weekend - so he's not allowed to take it off. The following weekend is a BBQ/party I have an extra pass for, so I'm hoping he might be able to come down. Or that I can go up for the one after that. It has been too long since we got to hang out.
I spent most of the weekend resting, and I feel pretty good now - and once I post this I'm off to bed again so I don't start the week sleep deprived. When not resting, I managed to get a few things done. Over the past week, between work and not enough sleep, etc, I finished setting up the new Pacific Media Expo forums and wrote up the blurbs for my divsion for the first flier. Our webmaster is working on the site, hopefully we'll have a prototype to check out soon. We plan to have it up before AX, since we're planning to distribute fliers and it'd be good to have a place for people to go. ;-) The pmx community is up too, of course. We're actively recruiting staff now, so if you think you might be interested just go here. All this stuff going on meant I had to skip the festivities this weekend that friends were hosting. I hope this week goes a bit smoother, I need to get those docs done, get ready for the trip, and take care of PMX stuff before I lose my network access when I leave. (Not sure what kind of connection I'll have at the hotel, if any.)
I also have to finalize the organization for the FanFic and Fansite panels at AX - I'm running both of those. Fansite is 20:30-22:00, FanFic is 22:00-23:30 - both Friday in LP2. So come on by if you'll be at AX.
