I had all this stuff I wanted to talk about earlier, but right now I feel like I'll be lucky to remember half of it.

I am not feeling entirely confident about the upcoming performance on Monday, but as with last month's banquet thing, I think this is pretty casual. I could have used more rehearsal. I have never done the intro, I don't know the exit. I'll be doing two dances. I'm not even sure how many there will be total. Four? Whatever the music plays, I guess! Perhaps I'm going to have to learn how to do improv. ;-) I was going to email all my local friends and tell them to get their butts out there and see me but since I'm on webmail at the moment I sadly don't have access to my email addys unless I happen to have it memorized or someone has emailed me in the last two days. Sooo.... I couldn't really pass the word along too well.

Mark your calendars though, because the BIG deal performance that you don't want to miss, with the new outfits and a new routine is:

Rakkasah West
troupe is "Arabian Jewels with Raks Padawan"
we are performing at 8pm on Saturday March 15th (for 15 minutes)
on the East Stage at the fairgrounds in Vallejo
this is one not to miss!!!

Though if you are local by all means come on down to Stockton on Monday and say hi.

I had in mind to go work on three new scrim projects today but sadly was unable to use the scope today. Reason 472 why I can't wait to get my own. Hopefully they'll be home tomorrow! I AM working on that horse portrait (still! JC I swear I will finish it!) but I keep forgetting to photograph it in the mornings, and it's such a dark colored image I can't get a good photo at night.

The computer should be back in about a week. Yay!

My cruise control has stopped working again. The cruise control and I have had sort of an on-again-off-again relationship over the last 13 years. As in sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Like for months or even years at a time it won't work. Psh no I am not going to get it fixed. I can live without it. I'll bet at least a third of the time I've had that car the cruise control hasn't worked. Heck, maybe even half.

I'm going to Reno, baby! Woo hoo! I'm super excited. I will be visiting the "Guns and Reno" show. A super talented friend of mine is one of the exhibitors there, and I am also looking forward to meeting a whole bunch of people with whom I have communicated on line about scrimshaw and engraving and whatnot. I am really looking forward to meeting everyone and making some contacts. I should probably bring some samples of my work, maybe I'll wear the dragon necklace. Would it be overkill to walk around in my "Katherine Plumer Fine Art" sweatshirt? Hmm. I tried to rustle up some friends to make the drive with me but nobody wanted to go, so, once again, it's all me. Looks like the weather will be fine though.

I thought I had one other thing to talk about but it must not be that important. Off I go!
