@Monja: Sylveon is her favourite Pokémon too. Very Happy Yes, she does have good taste. She is an artist and animator so good taste is pretty much part of her work description, hehe.

For some reason Arbok was always my favourite Pokémon. Smile

My internet, landline phone and able TV went out yesterday. We were out until early this afternoon. Turns out yesterday when the guy who was setting up our replacement water heater (which had died earlier in the week) had unplugged the amplifer for the router in the basement and didn't plug it back in.
I am enraged because I went through so much trouble to get a hold of comcast to get someone to come out today just for it to be someone so stupidly mundane!

The same thing just happened with my tv. After all the effort it turned out to be a extremely simple problem.

It's funny how those stuff seem to all strike at the same time. As if the appliances are scheming how to inconvenience someone. :0

Actually there is a saying "trouble happens in 3's"

Where if one thing falls apart, others follow suit by sheer luck.
Like when my dad died, 2 of our more elderly neighbors died within a week or so.

That was probably a horrible thing to experience. I'm so sorry for your loss.

Sometimes it just feels like there is some truth to that statement with all the bad luck.

I don't think I've ever been to any of that sort. Closest I can think of is the pow wow I went to last year. I intend to go again this year but with at least one of my friends.

Yeah, I don't go to a lot of festivals. I've gone to a couple of conventions though.

I've only ever been to 2 conventions; Anime Boston and Another Anime Convention. I haven't gone to ACC since 2012 and I didn't go to AB this year due to funds.

Going to a convention is really expensive. It takes a whole lot of effort to get there too. Overall just a lot of effort.

Yeah, I'm fairly lucky with the Anime Boston con since its really close to me. Only a 15 minute walk to the train station, then 45 minutes on the train itself going into Boston and maybe 20-ish minutes getting to the Hynes via the subway if you know where you're going.

That is really convenient. There isn't such a network of public transport over here so it's much more of a hassle to get anywhere.

convienent yes but pricey. If I don't get a hotel near the con (which is arguably more expensive) then the fare for getting back and forth between Boston and Wilmington (aka where I live) comes to about $90 to $100. Another downside is I can't stay longer than a certain time frame on the first two days (which is the bulk of the con) meaning I'm missing out on certain panels and activities that are only on in the late night (usually the 18+ stuff) because I have to be back at North Station to catch the last or second to last train home. Reverse is the same for the mornings however, the train runs pretty early but its annoying on Saturday and Sunday because the trains don't come as often. One time when me and a friend were just arriving at the station, the train was early and left so we had to wander around town to find something to do for 2 hours to get the next train.

I'm just taking a break from these conventions for now. I'll wait until I've got the funds and the time to do it right. I have to travel into the heart of the city usually, which is an ordeal in itself, lol.

Same, plus the last few years for me at conventions has either been boring or drama filled or both.
