I think I made a friend at work today... I had to card him, and called him by the name on his liscence (new co-worker, technically seasonal. I'm terrible with seasonal help's names.) which is a female name. He promptly corrected me, saying "it's *male name*". I apologized and and used his preferred name. I felt bad, I hadn't noticed the name on his name tag.

We sat together on our break.

(And target get super points - they have to use the female name on official paperwork ect, since that's his legal name but they have no problem with the male name tag and my manger used the correct gender pronoun when talking about him.)

Yay! I realized not too long ago that I can alter that white leotard that I hate for my Halloween costume! It shouldn't take too long to do that so I'll do that tomorrow.
Then, all I have to do is make a headpiece, finish sewing beads, decorate jellyfish tentacles, and.....tack. I hate tacking. Well. Whatever. It'll be done. Maybe I'll just sleep now......I have time, since I have tomorrow and the next day off.

At least I'm not too screwed if/when we lose power.

I kind of want to make pretzels tomorrow. (I'm hungry, can you tell?)

Finished the burning part of a Brave box I am getting ready for Youmacon. Gonna start the painting on it tomorrow. It's based on the tapestry at the end of the film with Merida and the bear.

Also got a few little square plaques that I am gonna use to do mini MLP portraits on I can sell as a set...er..hopefully...

I need to get the lineart completed for a bunch more traditional prints so they can be colored at the convention, and I still need to finish 3 digital pieces. Buuuuuuuuuuuh.

My girlfriend had to go in to work. The drive in was fine but I'm worried her driving home.

The wind woke me up. I'm not happy. But at least I'm still in my pajamas

Luna-- Keep us updated!

Loli, AnarCHRIS, Sakura, and anybody else on the East Coast: how are you guys faring?

Right now on my home front, it's just a lot of rain. There's going to be flooding. Personally, I live on really high ground, but elsewhere in the area there's going to be a lot of water.

EDIT: 2000th post WHOO!

They sent her home after an hour. She drove forty minutes to turn off lights and help tape a window.

My town is expecting "all or a majority" of the people in the town to lose power.

I hope everyone who lives in the NY/NJ area is doing alright.

IDK, man. Every year we get a storm and people are like, "IT'S GONNA BE HUGE! WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!" I know that this year they are saying, "We really mean it this time, you guys! YOU MIGHT DIE!" but I just can't get that worked up about it. If I were on the Cape or Long Island, then yeah - you guys stay safe. But Boston? Eh, it's kind of windy right now. I did my usual - put the trash cans in the basement, buy some extra bottled water and batteries, make sure the cell phones are charged, the end. Also, you New Yorkers know I love you and your city, but this made me laugh so hard.

We tied the trash bins to the lawn furniture (that was already chained together) so I don't think they will be going anywhere. And my mom bought pudding.

Comcast just called us and said they are working hard to prevent service interruptions. Which will only help if we don't lose power.

Target hasn't got a perfect track record, but things like that make me glad it's my preferred super-shopping-center.

HAAAAAAA.

Well, a quick-thinking neighbor put the trash cans in the basement. I'm stocked up on batteries, baby supplies, canned food and bottled water-- my mom insisted we fill our bathtub with water "in case you need it to flush your toilet", but hell no I am not doing that, we have a deep bucket and we'll use that if it comes down to it. Our patio furniture is tied to the railing (with twine, it's all I had on hand that wasn't satin ribbon), and emergency supplies are in a box with the flashlights and candles. We made it through last year's hurricane and over a week with no power AND a newborn baby, so I'm pretty confident we'll make it through this one, too.

When I dropped Little Dude off, his babysitter had already lost power, but they have a backup generator to run the essentials. Driving through that area was TERRIFYING, because not only was it full of downed branches and leaves whipping across the road, but it's right on the water and the tides were already so high that I had waves splashing the car as I drove. The beach was closed because the water was already reaching the parking lot, but people were outside taking pictures of the waves. Stores were boarding up their front windows. Parts of my mom's town (next to ours) have been evacuated, but only the ones in low-lying areas or the islands where there's only one small bridge in and out. Large swathes of both shores have also been evacuated, along with parts of Lower Manhattan and Queens. We're anticipating much worse than we've already got. The kicker is that, even if we're told not to come into work tomorrow or any other day, we have to charge our time unless the governor shuts the campus down. Which has happened exactly never.

If it starts getting bad before 5pm, I'm out of here. SV probably has to be at his job for undetermined amounts of time, since his school is a designated emergency shelter and I'm guessing Bayville will start evacuating in areas on the water, but I at least want to be home with Little Dude. I'm worried about him. I'm also scared of driving home-- having a branch fall on my car is a serious fear of mine.
