So, I bought a new car about 2 months ago - a 2012 Mazda 3. I had to get rid of the old truck, it was on its last leg and the about to become illegal to drive anyway. My buddy Loki drove with me and helped out. I'm really happy with the new car so far. It's nice to have a new vehicle again, especially one that just works, no worrying if the cops are going to pull you over for something falling off. Also it's nice to have more than twice the mileage, and not to have anyone ask you to haul something for them :) Also, black leather seats :D~~

I'm still working for U Maryland, 5 years officially in about one month. I am so ready to GTFO of this job, making no money. I'm waiting on my third publication to get accepted and then I'll start looking for realsies. I guess I'll look primarily in the Balto/DC area, but I've been here five years. I don't want to go back to Louisiana (ever), and although I do miss Texas, I don't know anyone there anymore and the culture is less than stellar in many respects. Maybe I should move to Chicago or New York or the West coast. I'd just like to find a good job, wherever. I'm still single, and that isn't likely to change anytime soon, so it's not like I have anyone else holding me here. I would miss the friends I made here if I moved, but I dunno if that is a sufficient reason to stay.

I attended FWA this year for the first time, and really had a good time. I'm skipping Anthrocon (say what?) to save money and because it kind of sucks now. I plan on hitting MFF this year and maybe FF too. We'll see, I'll play it by ear. I just got back from PDF a couple weeks ago, and that was fun. Running around naked in the sun always is. This weekend is the DC gay pride rally, which I may or may not be fursuiting at with some friends. It's not really my kind of thing but it is an excuse to go suiting, which I rarely turn down. In fact I got a new bodysuit made recently for my skunk, which fits me quite nicely. I'm also getting a new bodysuit made for another of my suits. I can't wait to break that one in too :)
