Home from PAX

It's been a bit of a crazy week. Went to PAX and hung out with some cool people, like naeko and hyperbali. And my lovely GA girls too. It wasn't nearly long enough, especially since I had to get up at about 4am on Sunday morning to make my 6am flight. Thankfully, it meant I was home by like 1:30pm on Sunday, which was nice since it was my birthday. It would've sucked to have spent my whole birthday on a plane.

As we landed back in KC, my mom was texting me to meet at my Grandparents (my grandpa and I share a birthday) so we went over and had some ice cream with them. I hadn't been up for people after all the travelling, but it was nice to get to introduce the grandparents to H and spend some birthday time with them.

Speaking of birthdays, my RP friends made me some cool Dragon Age things that are worth sharing.

So much <3 for these awesome things (and the people that made them for me, obviously).

Seriously, when I was sitting alone in the airport, checking my email in the hopes there'd be something good in it, and I found the email from
firstblush with that picture in it, it totally made my day. Good Birthday.

While I was at PAX, Matt spent the weekend with H and things were good, and have been since I came home. Though it's early (too early) to start thinking about it realistically, we've both talked about being interested in pursuing adoption. She's only just been in school a week though (and already has a boyfriend) so we're just sort of getting started.

I have 6 invites for Google Music if people are interested. If I don't already have your gmail address, I'll need that to invite you.

Ugh. Anders. :D
(Seriously, he's my least favorite character in DA 2 and he's EVERYWHERE.)

Let's See - how to explain.
1) Google Music - is basically a cloud storage site for your music. So you upload all your music to the Google Music service and you can get to it from anywhere. They've also got a bunch of free music, a blog with free daily songs and the player service works amazingly well. I've pretty much given up listening to music on my computer anymore because I like it so much.

2) Spotify - is like an internet radio service. You can listen to any song whether you own it or not, and you can buy songs you don't have through the service as well as listen to your own music library. There's commercials though.

I listen to everything in Google Music these days, but if I'm looking up new music, I go to Spotify.

I'll send you a gmusic invite. :D
