I am moving three days. THREE!
holy shit.
I took a load of furniture down, with my amazing friend Becky the other day. Also, my visa was processed successfully, after a little glitch - my original form mistakenly said I was born on Bouvet Island - which is an uninhabited Antarctic island (I was born in Canada) and I had to have a last minute form FedExed to me, from the SLOWEST Fedex delivery truck in existence.

I move on Tuesday. I've got Sirius' health certificate ready, and am planning on building him a kickass new cage. I'm excited, sad, terrified, and stressed. wah!

But, in other news, it's the end of summer, and that means it's time for Fan Expo!!!!!
Cheryl and I went last Saturday. I was dressed as the Fourth Doctor from Doctor Who, Cheryl was dressed as young Voldemort.

It was a pretty fun day. However, walking around a convention with thousands of people in August in wool scarves is really, really frigging hot.

I am moving to Rochester in nine days.
To say i'm panicking would be putting it lightly.
I've got a visa, an apartment, and a bank account. My student loans are not here yet, making me poor as dirt in the meantime. Also, I haven't started packing, and I have to bring Sirius to the vet this week to get him a health certificate. arrrggh.

Anyways, lots has been happening, here, lately.

Last week, Lisa, and the amazing knitters at the Sheep threw me a going away party!
I was overwhelmed by the kindness of the people who came out, it was lots of fun! I'm going to miss everyone so much! (I can't believe I only have one shift left!)

Also last week, Sirius and I went to Bunfest! it was so much fun! Sirius was the only Angora bunny there, and we couldn't walk two feet without someone stopping us, and saying how adorable he is!
but come on, he totally is adorable:
365-67: Bunfest!

This week, I went to Stitch and Pitch at the Skydome. I even competed in the fastest knitter competition before the game. I totally lost (I did 93 stitches in three minutes - the fastest knitter in the competitive category did 250 stitches.)
but it was pretty cool just being on the field before the game, and we even got our own dressing room!

We got our own dressing room!

And, I was on the Jumbotron!

365-69: OMG, i'm on the big TV!

Jays lost, but it was still fun. Also, beers were $9.50! that's so excessive, it's not even funny!

Me and Dad

But my daddy still bought me one!
