We're all pink in the middle

I finally washed my fursuit. It had spent a few months in the back of the closet under dirty clothes, several times hidden by me when company came over. The hispanic cleaning ladies must've loved seeing it every time they came by. It had acquired an odor of my sweat, which isn't the best of all smells, though still not the worst. I filled up the washing machine and added some Woolite, and agitated by hand for 5 minutes, and then spun it, then refilled with water, reagitated a few minutes, and respun. Then I hung it on the fan-hanger and blow-dried it for about half an hour while brushing out the matted parts and wrapped it in handtowels to draw out the water. I left it hanging in the shower with the fan attached and the heater on. After several hours, it's almost completely dry now. I may bring my blow-drier to cons, as it does a fancy job of floofing it up nicely.

Before I washed it I unzipped the tail to remove the inner foam thing. That was a pain as the zipper was obscured by matted fur (it's on the part that touches the floor over and over). My inner tail is fucking pink! I've got a My Little Pony tail insert! I got quite a laugh out of that.

On the downside LSU fucking lost their game, as I predicted. Not so bad except they put on such a poor show, no real driving plays at all. On a home game, no less. Sad sad.
