*fireworks* - Walking on the Edge
I don't really have a plan...
Happy Fourth of July, everybody! The holiday wherein there are lots of fireworks (I watched them explode over the Washington Monument, myself - pretty!) and I apologize for not posting so much lately. Sorry about that. :D

Been working with some soon-to-be clients, babysitting the baaaaaaby (he really IS the cutest thing ever, you know. Also he likes me lots, which is adorable. He even looks sad and makes a tiny little cry when I leave. Aw), working on the vampire teddy bear, and generally getting stuff done (still catching up from my trip to Indiana). And...that's pretty much it, I think.

Oh, except I've also been planning/anticipating with great excitement my trip to England in August for the UK Discworld Con and sightseeing afterward. I've decided to make my post-con travels a blend of Discworld and King Arthur, so will be visiting some Arthurian-related sites, and some Discworld friends. Fun!

And speaking of Discworld, I've found the dress I'd love to wear to the UK Con banquet. Of course, it's a dress from the Going Postal movie and I don't own anything remotely like it, but I'm just sayin': how many people would you shank to wear this red dress?

Yeah, same here.

OH HELL.I'D SHANK A LOT OF PEOPLE. But I'd look utterly stupid in it. I have more of a Nanny Ogg figure.

Hee! Well, she'd be fun to dress as, too. :)

Well, zero, but it's an awesome dress! You will post pictures, I hope.

Oh, I surely will. It's unlikely I'll be able to do this outfit, *but* I may dress as "Christine" from the Phantom of the Opera parody for the Banquet. If I can lose a leeetle weight, I can wear what I like to refer to as my "Oscar Awards" dress. Hee.

That is a really swanky dress. And the contents of said dress aren't bad, either.

Hee! Yes, no guarantees I would look as swanky *in* the dress as Claire Foy. BUT I'D BE WILLING TO TRY. If it meant I got to wear the dress. Heh.

Mmm. What he said!

Too true.

BTW, sorry I forgot to get back to you on the 4th party - so much catching up going on, I forgot all about it. Oops!

Love the dress! Have you tried looking on Etsy for something similar? I've been able to find things on there that aren't too terribly spendy.

well...ok, there's a *tiny* chance I may be able to wear the Actual Dress. No guarantees, but...we shall see!

I have another dress that I can pair with gold shoes and some accessories to be Christine, a character from Maskerade, his Phantom of the Opera-esque book. :D SO that will work for the banquet if I can't get ahold of a red dress.

Hey lady! What dates will you be in the U.K.? If you're still in D.C. the 5th-7th I'll be in town and would love to get dinner or something.
foresthouse From: foresthouse Date: July 12th, 2010 05:51 am (UTC) (current file)
August 5-7? I will be here! Would love to get together! :)
dachelle From: dachelle Date: July 13th, 2010 05:54 pm (UTC) (current file)
Yay! I'll let you know as soon as I know my schedule and where I'm staying and we can make plans!

Sounds good to me!
