My Pirate boots came today for my outfit for Dragon*Con, they were from SCABoots, pretty impressive timing, they got my order on Sunday and the boots got here today Wednesday, $99.99+12.95 shipping for a total of $112.94, I'm kicking myself for not ordering earlier when they had them going for $89, but still it's way better than over $200.
My cats have to go to the vet tomorrow in preparations for being boarded during my vacation, still trying to find options to that, but my friend who house sat for me last year is going on her own vacation around that time so I can't fault her for having her own life (well I could try, but that wouldn't be nice). The boarding option also eats into my vacation time since I wouldn't be able to leave until that Tuesday, instead of leaving the previous Saturday and just driving in the general direction of Atlanta and site seeing. At $32 a day for boarding the budget is already getting strained. So no EasternMedia Con on the weekend before DragonCon. Even with that cut out it's still a partially play now pay later affair. Speaking of the cats, after tomorrow's vet visit my Ex-wife's cat is "Dusty" is being officially declared as mine since it's been over a year and she hasn't picked him up to take with her and has contributed absolutely nothing to his care. Once I pay his vet bill he's mine now and she isn't getting him back (as if she cares), besides he loves me now, and our other kitty "13" loves having her big adopted brother around.
