|Thandor parties and what not
so I got things worked out, going to be hosting a BYOB party down at S4 on Nov 7th, which is a Friday. Cover is $10, and I would like an RSVP, but it's not required. it will just make space planning easier. Hex has already signed up to spin some phat tunes for us. No theme for this party, just kinda a chill thing, get a feel for the place, and give me a chance to feel up the inner workings before the big Shindig in December
also, need a bar tender, a door monkey, and a few folks to do walk around security. it won't get you paid, but it'll get you in without cover at the booze provided one in December, which will be an Order Convention Party without the convention with a $25 RSVP only cover.
Why $25 and RSVP only? the cover is to pay for the booze and facilities and to raise funds for Order parties at actual cons. the RSVP is because I have to have a solid guest list, and if you ain't on the list with an ID that matches your RSVP name, you ain't getting past the door (per agreement for providing you jerks with free booze). no, your name cannot be +1. yes, you must send me the money before the event (rules). no, you cannot get a friend discount, this is a freaking fund raiser, help out. but if it makes you feel better, this is going to be the D*Con party I was going to throw, so bust out some con costumes and hit it hard. we'll have some of Lupin's beer, some blue stuff, and at least one hottie running around with jello shots. Hex has already stepped up to DJ and in the event enough people RSVP ahead of time (like 2weeks+), we might open up the other side and bring in a second DJ and have a second dance area thingy.
so, who's in?

|need a welder
I'm looking for a welder of stainless steel. I need a project done up. I don't care how you find em, art departments, red necks, whatever. I can pay for materials in cash and work in booze. I know lots of you know artsy types, find out who has is a TIG welder and put em in contact with me.
the needs be strong, in the name of booze
so the roommate tells me today when I get home that she wants to move, the commute and location just ain't working for her. now, she's going to need some time to find a place, and I'm going to need some time to find a decent roommate, so we're going to stick it out for another month or so (roughly) to make sure no one gets left hanging. So I'm back to looking for a roommate. anyone want a room in Vinings with the awesome mead maker and his ferret? Aside from a solid carpet cleaning needs be done, things around here are tight. I'm looking for $500 a month for the room and utilities, but I can swing as low as $450 if you're be down for a months deposit on moving in (plus whatever remains of the month that you move in up front). the room is partially furnish, and the rest of the house is totally furnished.

so very yummy. awesome spiced batch. it's gonna be a GOOD con
|Thursday, July 24th, 2008|
yay, I get home to find my roommate and most of her stuff gone. a week before rent is due at that. fucking lovely. no word, not even a phone call. so I find myself in need of a roommate.
things to remember, you need to be able to clean up after yourself in a reasonable fashion, you need to have a stable job, and you need to be okay with a veritable ocean of booze and my ferret living here. Other than that, everything is all goods.
Rent and utilities is $500 a month, living up in Vinings, just off 285 and 75 on the north side. Anyone know anyone looking? the sooner the better

wow, may, it's been a while. been mostly hanging over on my other LJ. go me. um, lets see, what happens. roommate is riding my last nerve kinda hard. I get to scream at her in a few and treat her like a 12 yr old. damn kid won't clean up after herself or her animals without me riding her ass sideways.
money is moving again, I project being out of debt by May next year. I'm going to be working a few other things to see about moving that up, but I doubt it'll happen without another pay raise or a weekend job. or much booze moving. I could see about moving some tasty drinky, but odds don't look good for large scale sales, and that's what I'd be needing. like a huge order or something. But, I'll be clear by mid-summer and saving for a down payment on a little shag pad to own and make awesome. Hurray, I'll begin building wealth.
speaking of wealth, I'm just about done with the second revision of my business plan for mead making, almost time to find investors. I'm looking to put this off a little longer since I have not some uber-tasty bottles with which to entice said investors.
been sleeping a lot lately, body tired. But I make time for mead making and weasel playing. Athena is so cute. and she's being awesome lately. she'll be affectionate for 5 whole minutes before spazzing out.
um, that's about it. some of yous I only talk to on LJ, and I ain't reading 3 months of back posts, so leave me a note about what's going on in your world

|the flow of life
I have a stable job, the roommate has one too. my bills are falling, gas prices are rising, and aside from making booze, my time is spent thinking about cons (or playing WoWcrack). The strain of the last 6 months is fading fast (I can feel my shoulder blades again) and aside from dealing with this dog, life seems back on track.
I hadn't realized how much the last 6 months had been bothering me until the strain was off. I look back and realize that I hadn't been happy for nearly 6 months (including Frolicon). I also realized that I had been using con planning as my escape hatch, a way of having something to do, to focus on, that I could accomplish when I couldn't accomplish other things to make forward progress.
But I feel my strength returning, I watch my bills slowly fall away, and I'm climbing back up the well and the rain stopped. And still I focus on the cons. I dont't know if that's a good thing or not, but I'm going to make a batch of mead this weekend, and I think it's really going to help me shrug off the last of it

|Dog in need
anyone want a dog? the roommate brought it, has horribly neglected it (nothing new) and it needs to go. it's not properly house broken or leash trained (neglect on the owners part). it's a little dog, maybe 15lbs but he's got a lot of energy in him and loves attention. also still has his balls. He needs a good home and someone to care for him, and that someone AIN'T me. I don't like small dogs and I hardly have the time to spend with Athena as it is. I've already talked to the humane society, and he's going there sometime next week unless someone else steps up first.

|Offical change of status
okay, so I'm going to completely change things over to Thandor for all con/party/booze related things. Which means the posts on this LJ are likely going to drop to just about nothing. I'm not going to delete anyone or anything, but if you ain't part of my regular life and such, then you won't make the 'read and read' filter thingy I'll be putting up. Really, I doubt I'll be posting to this again until something cool besides cons and parties happens in my life. If you want to keep up on such things, tag thandor
for all that. I'll add anyone over there and post a lot, since I've basically devoted my life to cons and parties and the Order and what not for the foreseeable future. So there ya go. I'll keep some people here and comment if you really want to know what's going on in my life and such.
Hell, I'll be honest, I doubt I'll even log into this LJ but maybe once a week or something

|shit + fan = likely cancel of frolicon parties
aight, we gots a problem here at the Order. Seems one of our key peeps, Goose, had a small apartment fire. nothing major, no wounded or dead, but it looks like he won't be making it to con this weekend. until I hear otherwise, this also means no Hex. At a minimum, that means a hit to the Order of some $800-$1000 plus the sound system and DJ. so unless something happens and things just happen out of nowhere, we in a world of shit for this party thing. That all being said, if we have some folks step up, we might can still do this. We'll need a credit card, and $650. It was $800 above to include the $150 deposit for the debit hold. $350 of that $650 is for the party room itself, and the other $300 is for a full size keg full o' blue stuff. so yea, who wants to step up and help us out? Now, that isn't to say there's no chance of the guys not coming in, but it's really late in the game and the shit has hit the fan hard and fast, so I'm operating, until I hear otherwise, under the assumption that they ain't
yea, I love cons when I need to count on others to make things happen. so glad I started a new job

|Order at Frolicon
Okay, last chance to PayPal money to the Order. if it ain't in ny 8pm EST, then you need to get it to me on site. If you plan on doing the weekend Order membership thing, make sure to email me at Thandor@boozepack.com and let me know.
Current party plan is Thursday night chill thingy, and taste-test for Friday. Friday is our concoction contest entry thing, so make sure to bring your voting form thing so we can win. Sunday AM (like 3am) we'll be opening up with mimosas and screw drivers and what not, funding permitting.
See everyone there :) unloading time is tentativly set for 5pm on Thursday, so drop in if you got time

some know, some don't. Today is March 14th, and that's Steak and Blow Job day. Sadly, another year I don't look likely to be able to celebrate. Next year, I'll be setting up the steak part one way (party) or another (by my lonesome). Blowjobs, well, I just never have good luck planning those
|Monday, March 10th, 2008|
it has been brought to my attention that in the last 6 years, I've only done something for my b-day once, since Fantasm/Frolicon has always fallen within a week or so of said event. yea, I cheat death year after year, he's going to be sore when he finally catches me. anyway, that weekend, the Ga Ren Fest
opens, so I was thinking about going down and causing a bunch of trouble and drinking boozepacks full of mead. lots and lots of mead. and playing with pointy objects. and flirting with girls I don't know wearing corsets and bodices and the like
so, anyone else want to make a weekend of it? now, before I go too far with this, I may have to work that day AT the ren faire, still waiting to hear back from some of my peoples, but I can't imagine they would have too big a problem with one day, even if it is opening day. or maybe postpone the adventure until the second week, less crowds and such. anyway, ideas comments and concerns.
this will be my 6th annual 21st b-day
|Saturday, March 8th, 2008|
aight, so my plan to acquire a decent sound rig for Frolicon has failed. anyone got something slight more decent than the ghetto-rig I got in my place? and I needs to be able to plug a laptop into it. No, you won't be getting anything from me more than you already would (hurray, booze), except for my thanks and the thanks of those that won't have to drink in silence

|D*Con room swap (I needs a suite)
anyone got a suite in the hyatt they would be willing to swap for 2 or 3 reg rooms in the hyatt? I needs party space, and a suite is optimal. Admittance to anything we do in the suite is a given. get back to me if you hear anything

|a place to live
so, does anyone need a place to live for a bit? I found out it's going to cost me $1400 to break my lease. I have alternate lodging set up for myself and my ferret, so I can either split this place with someone ($400 a month plus half the utilities) or I can just let someone else take over the lease, so no deposit, no worries. I'll have to stay on the lease for about a month, so they don't say anything, but I won't be here and I won't even have a key. So, who wants what?
