I am not going to Vividcon this year--but I have a reservation in the group block for Thursday through Saturday (Sunday departure). It's a room with a king bed.

If anyone can make use of it I'm happy to transfer it to you. My only concern is that my credit card not get charged. Feel free to signal boost. If I don't get a nibble by Friday, then I will just cancel the reservation.

Thanks!

VividCon Baking Team: feed the con!

People of VividCon! Once again, the con is crowdsourcing the con suite baked goods, and we need your help.

Those of you who have attended VividCon in the past will recall that our con suite abounds not only with soda, candy, and other store-bought items but with delicious homemade baked goods. We try to provide a wide range of treats to meet as many dietary needs as possible, including vegan, dairy free, gluten free, nut free, and diabetic-friendly options.

For the first decade-plus of the con's history, we had dedicated bakers who supplied all the homemade baked goods. In more recent years, we've relied on a Many Hands Make Light Work approach: several people bake something at home and bring it with them, and together we feed the con!

The con can help defray ingredient costs and toss in one extra copy of the con DVD for each baking team member. The best compensation, of course, will be overhearing people talk about how delicious your contribution is.

If you think you could make a couple of loaves of your favorite vegan banana bread or a double batch of rice krispie treats, chocolate chip bar cookies, or that intriguing gluten-free peanut butter cookie recipe you've been meaning to try, please comment on this entry (comments are screened) or email me directly at heresluck at gmail dot com. We'll use a shared Google spreadsheet to coordinate who's bringing what and check that we're accommodating as many dietary restrictions as we can.

Thanks in advance for considering whether you can fit a container of cookies into your luggage! ♥

Support a great vidder!

Hi Dreamwidth! It's been ages.

I am about 85% activism these days, but I've got vidding on the brain again: Vividcon in three weeks OMG!

I wanted to tell you about a friend of mine whom you might know: [personal profile] kuwdora. She is a fantastic vidder who is trying to become a professional editor, battling significant obstacles to do so. She has an amazing opportunity to get coaching from the editor of Burn Notice and Empire, but she can't quite make the math add up on her own. So please consider donating to her GoFundMe. Your donation will help a talented woman succeed in a male-dominated industry, giving her the skills and connections she needs to survive in Hollywood. Please give if you can.

I didn't actually will myself sick to get out of a work 'team bonding' event. But I can't deny the super convenient timing.

I finished up a big work project I've been working on for months. I was somewhat concerned I wouldn't be able to find something else big and lengthy to work on next... and then I stumbled on a trash fire made up of a few different individual fires that will take a lot of effort to put out. Which is great! But also a bit demoralizing, in the sense of "holy shit is everything terrible, am I going to be cleaning up decade-old bad code forever?".

I really need to apply for other jobs. For the experience of applying, remember / figure out how the hell to do interviews, hopefully get an offer I can use to blackmail my current company to give me a better raise. (I was basically told, flat out, that the only way to get a more-than-meh raise was if they had to 'fight' to keep me. So.) But the whole concept is terrifying. I get stuck on details like, what route would I take to drive there? I haven't even applied yet, and I'm already worried about the commute. I worry about everything, the whole chain of events, up front. Which makes me good with money, I guess, but in most other ways it makes things too impossible to begin, with all the risks and potential for failure.

I have fallen off of Twitter. I've conceded that I'll likely never be sufficiently blasé with my thoughts to casually tweet them out with any regularity. I recently got an instagram acct, for reasons I'm disinclined to examine closely. So far I've kept at it longer than I feared I would, so that's nice. I'm sticking to a deliberately slow pace, for now.
