...which only exemplifies the problem.

To wit, I used to be one of those people whose First World Problems included "if I could just win the lottery, all of my financial woes would be solved and I could do whatever I wanted". Which, while true, isn't really the 'problem' anymore. Realistically if I could win/make/steal the same amount I take home NOW without having to go to work, I could do pretty much do what I want to do, I'd just have the time to actually do it! That, or somebody invents a 25 30 36-hour day... we'll see which happens first.

I have too many hobbies/tasks. I don't want to give up ANY of them. Hell, I've got ones I want to do I haven't even been able to properly begin (hello archery). I've been going to the gym down the street since cardiac rehab ended, which is AWESOME, but sucks up somewhere between 70 and 130 minutes of the days I manage to go. I've not done any real coding in months, and this week (hopefully) I'll reinstall All The Operating Systems and be ready to play Diablo III in my nonexistent free(r) time. And let's not even talk about costuming...

Anyway, lunchtime's a-wasting. Hope your life is as full and exciting as mine, but perhaps not moreso.

Rolled out of bed waylate this morning; of course, that probably has to do with not getting to sleep until waylate last night this morning. My brain is in full 'GOgoGogo!' mode with all the D*Con prep going on. I estimate that by the time we get done we'll have put in 100 hours or so on this year's costumes, between the two of us. Of course, they're gonna look awesome, but... dayum. Now I know what happened to August. Of course, a day and a half ago I thought I was nearly done with machine sewing, but there continue to be little edges of projects that pop up (and this isn't really a complaint, because it's a damn sight faster than hand-sewing those parts would have been, even when I do sew the edge of a sleeve to itself). Coats are almost done: pocket flaps on K's, both collars (hand-sew), general addition of trim, and the long cuffs on mine are left. The Agatha Heterodyne project is in good shape with the completion of the dingbot, and I had a brain-spasm the other night that completely rewrote the plan of attack for the waist cincher. Covering the Celtic World Wrestling Champion belt is out (those of you who have seen it will know what I mean), table saws and drill bits are in. Whee! It actually probably would have taken about the same amount of time, as the difficult part is sewing the trim edge and faux buttonholes on, but it's still a lot longer than we'd originally budgeted for. On the other hand, real buttonholes are Sooper Simple with the new machine; it has the Nimbus 3000 of buttonhole feet, which actually measures the button to see how big the hole should be.

Wrist-mounted LEDs may, nay probably will not be happening. Sadness ensues, but unless I get a similar Moment of Inspiration on Wednesday night, there's just not enough time left to do them. Maybe next year...
