The moving cubes arrive tomorrow. I have them for three business days (one day for arrival, one full day, one day for pickup) plus the intervening weekend.

I intellectually know that I have a whole lot of things sorted and packed, but the fact that I haven't got much in the way of a sensible staging area makes everything very hard to see the progress, and many of my daily-use things are still front and center, even though the closets and cubbies are getting packed and stacked.

Aaaaaa.

We'll be loading the moving cubes, and then I take some important things in my car and drive from the SF Bay Area to the Seattle-Tacoma area. I'll be crashing with my sister for a while; there will be some overlap between me and her boyfriend who is currently staying with her. I'm bringing an air mattress.

Motivation.
Sanity.
Encouragement.

All of these things are hard. Occasionally my partner has to remind me that hyperventilating is bad, and maybe that anti-anxiety medication is there for a reason.

"NEEGATIVE FIVE STARS. What a terrible recipe! I was out of flour but
didn't want to go to the store so I substituted a cup of plaster and a cup of gravel, spray margarine for the cultured butter, and stevia drops for the sugar, and then fried the batter in bacon grease instead of baking it. And I didn't give it the 24 hour rest recommended in the recipe because I'm impatient. The results are INEDIBLE and clearly you CANNOT COOK and should DELETE YOUR BLOG."

Reviving an old community, punning

[personal profile] pauamma posting in [site community profile] dw_community_promo
From [community profile] punning's profile:

Puns and wordplay welcome, the worse the better. Long, short, contorted, obscure, whatever. Filthy OK, but must use cuts and some kind of content warning. Likewise triggery. Visual puns OK, but must have description in an alt= tag. Likewise, recorded audio or video puns need a transcript of some kind. (I'm not deaf or blind, so leaving the specifics open, but if you don't know what's needed, be prepared to take those who do at their word, and accept contributions if offered.)

Clean or filthy, puns will likely break your brain over time and cause copious amounts of pain. If you can't live with that, you probably shouldn't be reading this comm.

Some of you might remember me, and a few of you might remember that I've had severe allergy problems three times now with Madison in the spring, so, unusually for me, here is a 'care and feeding' post letting people as are interested know what I will and won't be up to this weekend.

I am trepidacious, and also excited.

Edited to add: Room Acquired! Woo! See you at WisCon!

Hello!

I'm trying to pull together a spur of the moment trip to WicCon and I'm hoping to find someone looking for a roommate. This will be my first WisCon and I'm hoping for a last minute miracle. Did someone if your group have to drop out unexpectedly? Or do you know someone who needs a roommate? I can happily fill the slot!

I'm a 41 y/o cis queer woman (she/hers) non-smoker, courteous and quiet. New to WisCon but not new to cons in general (I've attended WindyCon and Capricon regularly for the last few years) Hoping to experience my first WisCon this year! Can you help me out? Shoot me an email at amyshy at gmail dot com.

Thanks in advance!

The Big Gay Fiction Giveaway is back! May 22-29, around 80 authors are giving away free books, short stories, chapters, and box sets.

It's run by Instafreebie, which means you give them an email address, they sign you up for a newsletter, and you get a DRM-free epub, mobi, or (sometimes) pdf sent to you. It's pretty painless except for all the newsletters you'll then belong to.

I know this is a last-minute shot in the dark, but I'm looking for a room-share. I'm a female introvert whose hobbies are reading and knitting, and fandoms are Yuuri on Ice!!! and SF. I'm willing to pay 1/people in room of cost if you have a place for me.

It's SF/F convention season again, and once more we are all presented with the conundrum --

Do I hug this person hello and goodbye, or not?

Social hugging! It's a thing! Yet, it is MOST DEFINITELY NOT A THING for a lot of people.

Here is how I, personally, navigate these situations. While this may not work perfectly for you, feel free to modify it for your own use.

If I want to hug a person hello or goodbye, I say to them, "Do we hug?" (Or, "do we hug hello?" etc.)

If they say "Yes, we hug!" then we do, indeed, hug.

If they say *anything else*, I back off and we do not hug.

If someone says to me, "do we hug?" and I *want* to, I say "yes, we hug!" and there is a hug.

If I do not want to hug this person at this moment, I say one of the following things, or something similar:

I don't recall us hugging
I'm not much of a hugger
I don't think we hug
Now's not a great time
Not that I know of

If the other person does not understand the soft no and moves in, I take a step back and say:

No thank you
Now now
I meant no

If my hug offer is rejected, I move into the next part of the conversation "It's great to see you! How have you been?" or "I'm so glad we talked, when's your next panel?" or something similar. If I have just rejected someone else's hug offer, same script. No apologies, no talking about feelings or misunderstandings, just move into the next phase of the social interaction.

I, personally, do not enjoy finding out later that I have made someone uncomfortable with my actions. I prefer clear communication BEFORE social hugging to try to avoid awkwardness afterwards. YMMV!

[personal profile] psychopathicus_rex and [personal profile] icon_uk debate the definition of "folklore":

PSYCHOPATHICUS_REX: Not to be pedantic, but (werewolves being vulnerable only to silver bullets) is strictly Hollywood - any old bullet will do. Don't muck up your folkloric credentials now!

ICON_UK: As folklore is more or less completely made up, I fail to see how Hollywood isn't as valid a source as anywhere else, considering how humans everywhere always LOVE turning things into stories.

PSYCHOPATHICUS_REX: Well, the way I look at it, Hollywood folklore is stuff you KNOW is made up - traditional folklore has generally been around for a long time, and at least stands a chance of being true. Personally, I'm a bit of a mystical type by inclination, so I prefer to give it the benefit of the doubt.

ICON_UK: I think I'm more of a Granny Weatherwax type in such things. Folklore is lore told by "folk", and how reliable have people you think of as "folk" ever been? :)

Does WisCon do memorials?

tbonejenkins: (sad Izumi)
[personal profile] tbonejenkins posting in [community profile] wiscon
 Hello all,

Ama Patterson, a dear fan and attender of WisCon died on May 1st. I know that Ama will be remembered at the Carl Brandon party that Friday, but I'm also wondering if there is an official "In Memorium" that happens at Wiscon?

I ask this because around this time last year (June 2), another friend, Elle Plato, died, and I was looking for a way to honor her at WisCon. I believe she did some lockpicking demos during the Gathering a couple of years ago. Please feel free to inbox me directly. Thanks!

LaShawn
