 Hey, folks. Sorry I've not posted in a while. Here's an update. 

Moved in, got settled, have a guest bed now set up (small one), got things all over the place, looking into what I don't have and what I do. Relationship aftermath hasn't begun yet for some reason not in my hands, and I'm completely not sure what to do about the other half of this equation at this point in time. *sigh* Advice welcome.

Need to get in touch with/interview a project manager (or someone who has managed a project in) the business field. This is needed for an interview, and I would be appreciative of any help I can get on the subject. All interest can be sent to my email: kdsavitzky at gmail dot com. The idea is I need to choose someone I do not know very well/am not related to. Plenty of you I know through conventions and I know you have contact in the business world, so that won't be an issue. Dad, I can't use you for this because we're related.

I was told to create another meaningful post on my blog, so I'm doing so. Let me sum up.
  • I still want to go snowboarding. Grr.
  • I'm looking for a new place. The fact I'm not able to entertain folks at my current domicile is annoying to me.
  • I've created a new RSS feed of [personal profile] mdlbear's concerts, for a school project. Linked to from my website.
  • I've added a link to said website for my Youtube channel, so you can find the awesome video.
  • I'm hating my programming class and want it to die in a ball of fire.
chaoswolf: (Default)
Been a while since I posted one of these, huh...? Mkay. Long list, so here's the highlights. Meaning )
  • School has started. I've got a nice class setup for the e-commerce class (all online) , a horrible layout/professor for my Intro to Programming class (up to my ASCII in Micro-$loths) and have a terrible project to work on but am currently stumped. Oh, and my Bus101 class: I'm doing well in that too. Last 2 quizzes = 18/20, 16/20. Take-home essay exam thingie due on the 1st, so get to do that. Get to take video of something/someone this weekend, and will use for educational purposes since it's for a project in my E-commerce class. I'm doing well in school so far this quarter, but am seriously hating Nico and his $lothiness.

  • Conflikt <---- an excuse to see [personal profile] mdlbear again, and my mother. An excuse to see people I would otherwise need to wait a year for. A chance to extend wedding mazeltovs to moshez since I haven't seen him in a long time. (Since last year, I think.) A chance try breaking my father with a new filk. Hey...I have enough material for a Two-Fer! Of my own! YAY! Think on school, try to get stuff done, ask for help with the damn project from hell that refuses to die...piece of kindling I mean...erm. Yeah. Enough about that. Enjoy myself. Yes.A chance to do something out of the ordinary is always good, and I don't consider school ordinary. I consider sitting on my keetster and playing computer games to be ordinary, OTOH I've had a bit too much homework recently to make ordinary happen regularly. Must remember to write interview questions for Bear.

  • Snowboarding: I wanna go so bad...damn furmeet having it on a Monday. I can't skip class, no matter how badly I want to get away from Nico. Damn conscience. I have my own gear this time.

  • TL;DR (Too Long; Didn't Read):
    • Keys found.
    • I'm back in school and more or less having fun.
    • Conflikt: Filkers R Us!
    • Snowboarding: I wanna go.

    chaoswolf: (Default) a funny thing when it's done hastily, or when it's set in jell-o, or when it's eaten by unexpected things. I've had a few plans in the works for things I've wanted to get done when school was out, and had those quickly turned to jell-o. One such plan was to go shopping for a bike with [personal profile] technoshaman , which hasn't happened due to his impulses to help [ profile] pocketnaomi piece her reality back together. Not that I blame him, but I would love to try looking for a bike before the end of the year since I'm only here till the 16th. Leaving for CA is now set in stone, as it were; as is my return date of 01/02. Tickets are bought, plans are set. On the other paw, we can probably do it on a Friday after I get back, since once again I have no school.

    Meantime, I'll try to make things happen with other friends and hope to get a chance to talk to techno a bit later but before I leave. Cest la vie.

    Hi, all. I'm coming back to California to visit Chez Starport from Dec 17 to Jan 2nd. Plans seem to be booked solid on the 17th, taking at least one Thursday to go to KoC karaoke, Wednesdays and obvious parties (Xmas/New Years) fairly open. Those of you who want to meet up, comment/call/contact me somehow and I'll try to slot you in. Itinerary details made available upon request.
    chaoswolf: (Default)
    It's been a while since I posted. I'm sorry about that. I haven't had much to say. Or maybe it's because I'm just so fucking homesick that I can't deal with saying anything about the fact I miss [personal profile] mdlbear and home so much. Enough about that shit. You don't want to hear about it. It's my fault I moved...but it doesn't mean I like it. Just me making my peace...I miss you all.

    The short version is the list. The long version is behind the cuts.
    chaoswolf: (Default)
    Highlights (in no particular order.)
    • Met family, Dad's side. Lots of cousins that I didn't know/didn't remember I had. Lots of "I want a copy of  CC&S
      • sold chain mail bracelet to one of my cousins.
      • Had really good fish, 2 days in a row.
    • Celtic Fest out in Hoodsport, thereabouts.
      • Had delicious yet crunchy hefferwiezen, which wasn't bad.
      • bought new renfair-ish shirt, backup garb for SA
      • got fitted for a new kilt (not utilikilt, but close enough.) didn't buy it due to lack of funds.
    • Got checks in mail as allowance/text book offset.
    • Started reading Warriors by Erin Hunter. Good series. Need to start book 3.
    • Cleaned my room (again).

    Sadly, nothing new to report that I can sum up easily. I've been feeling a good deal of depression recently, and I've no idea why. I don't know if it's because of my recent lack of relationship, sleep deprivation, boredom, homesickness, or sheer "I don't want to do anything." It could be a combination of all these things, but I would <3 to figure out why. That's neither here nor there, I suppose.

    Aside to [personal profile] technoshaman : I meant to stay longer in Seattle today, but due to a nearly dead phone battery was deciding to head home from there. We should perhaps schedule dinner and w00t shirt retrieval another time.

    Aside to self: finish the chain shirt. Take a few pics, and try to sell the damn thing. Really, you'll deserve to sell it, you've put in enough hours. Work on website when motivation = found. Hmmm...Is that what I should do with Make it my chain mail store thingie? Hmm.....will ask [personal profile] mdlbear about that sort of thing. Yes. Later.

    chaoswolf: (Default)
    Well, more or less. I've aged another year. Dinner was good, tomorrow will be good with sushi, and my plans will happen involving FBQs and fur meets. (For those of you non-furs, a FBQ stands for FurBQ.)

    This is a great quote sequence in reference to the upcoming Saturday:

    Quote behind the cut. )Quote behind the cut. )Quote behind the cut. )
    Is that where you put a Furry on a spit and cook it til all the muppet fur falls off? :twisted:
    My response: 

    ICEBERG wrote:Is that where you put a Furry on a spit and cook it til all the muppet fur falls off? :twisted:

    No. We all get into suits and play twister as Helios BBQs the people under the Fur. Hence why it's a FBQ.

    As for other plans throughout the month and then some: 

    • Tomorrow: Meeting with Raikon (another furry) for brunchy thing/hanging out followed by dinner with [personal profile] technoshaman  in celebration of the above-mentioned notch on the sword, spend night in Seattle.
    • Friday: return home to Marysville, get fur suit from where it resides and attempt to piece it together while waiting for the FBQ on 
    • Saturday: Go to FBQ from noonish to 1700ish. Frisbee, noms, furries, art, and stuff.
    • Sunday: Meet up with friend Leo and hang out with him, crash @ his place, return home tomorrow.
    • Monday: recover from weekend, get sleep for tomorrow
    • Tuesday: Orientation. Yay. For fall quarter. Fun fun. (Looking forward to going back to school, not looking forward to the rest of it.)
    • Try to make plans for Epic Movie Night on the 16th of Jul, ditto for Bellevue Fur Meet take 2 on the 23rd (jul), somewhere in there remember to buy RF membership
    • after off to Kansas or wherever and hang out with [ profile] wolfwings  for a bit.
    • September: return sometime before school/RF, go buy books, get excited because I'll see my parents at the con
      • Try to figure out how the hell I'll manage to swing getting to the con Thursday night and back to school Fri if my schedule leads that direction. Bleah.
      • Hope I'm back for game...need to confirm with Wolf on that.


    chaoswolf: (Default)
    • During the last few weeks or so (since end of March, just a bit before), I've been getting settled in to my new digs at Chez Dixon. As I predicted, most of my tax refund went toward move costs, and dealing with paying off Led for my share of the bills that weren't paid/hadn't been paid due to various reasons that I won't go into, because that's in the past, and done!
      • As a side note to all my LARPy friends for SA: I live in Marysville now, closer to [ profile] asahoshi  and [ profile] drakk_draconian in a place that doesn't have a horribly steep incline driveway.
      • In other news, I'm still working on de-cluttering my room, which has become over-run with boxes. Go fig. Happens after a move, right? The de-cluttering process? Now to find my drill so I can put my desk back toget--never mind, that won't work. Not enough space to tip the desk over. Hmmm...
    • Also during the last few weeks, I've been trying to keep tabs on the drama unfolding @ Starport with [personal profile] mdlbear  and my sister. Not saying that my parents are idiots, but I feel like my sister is definitely an airhead in this regard. I give kudos to both my parents for their extreme patience in dealing with this @$$h01e she is dating, but I strongly advised them to pack his stuff in a box and kick it onto the curb. Not happening, but I tried.
    chaoswolf: (Default)
    • Reality Bites Back -- Murphy's Law and the Chew Toys: This is the most recent news between me & [identity profile] On the one paw, circumstances have been less than ideal because Murphy feels the need to make everything harder than it was already. On the other...I don't really want to go there. A learning experience; good because it had a lot of positive memories/moments and bad because of the strain it put us both through. A piece of me will always be with him, even if our paths never cross again in reality. Advice had been heard, parts of it may have been followed while others of it were ignored. I don't want to make a scalding post against him, I just ask you understand this is the way it is because Murphy decided to chew on us. Sean, I don't blame you. I never will. I feel it's my fault it didn't work. I am truly sorry.

    • Chaoswolf: The Gypsy Years [Impending move II (as it's my second move and numbered thusly)] -- stated in this post, I'm too busy acting on survival instincts to attempt preparations for the impending move; which is happening by/before end of March (new location Marysville). Don't get me wrong, I love Redmond. The problem is the apartment complex. You may remember my earlier post that is one of the two major deterrents from living here. The other...well,'s just way too damn expensive to live here now. Rent is now either $1050 or $1100, that I just simply don't have the means to afford anymore (it was $962 when we got it initially in April 2009). I am grateful to Dix and [identity profile] asahoshi.livejournal.comfor the offer of space, [identity profile] and her minion E for offering to help with the transportation issues surrounding the move, [personal profile] mdlbear and Mamacat for being so supportive, and Grimm for buying my knives so I have enough $ to scrape by with until circumstances change.

    • conflikt was a fantastic con for me. We didn't see [identity profile] or [identity profile], but we did have one hell of a filler: the one and only [identity profile] I am extremely impressed with the bard's music over the last year.
      • Friday, I was waiting for [identity profile] asahoshi.livejournal.comand company to show up. I'm wearing my tail, and after stopping by the dealer's den to confirm my favorite bard was at his table, I went upstairs to trade a few words with Dad and get my fur suit. Walked back downstairs and showed up and I think he said "Because nobody in their right mind would bring a fur suit to a filk con." He's correct: I'm right handed, so in my left mind. Hehe. Dinner with the [personal profile] mdlbear followed by some really interesting concerts. I was a big fan of Cecelia Eng and Steve Dixon's sets, as they were a nice mix. Black Davey's Ride done earlier in the night followed by Our Mrs. Reynolds (which, for those of you who don't follow Serenity/Firefly is a song about Mal's wife set to the same tune) was just bloody awesome. Awesome filking later on during the open filk, followed by me going to bed @ ~0230 or so.

      • Woke up Saturday morning (uncertainty what time exactly) to have breakfast with the 2 Ds and a J mentioned above (who were my room mates at the con). Got back to the hotel, placed an Interfilk bid or 3, enjoyed every waking moment. Not to mention spending more time with my parents. Had interesting time playing messenger and getting shot, but that was fairly irrelevant due to the fact that con weddings are win when over with. Um...Interfilk voice auction resulted in me & asahoshi getting into a bidding war over a holographic Matrix poster. She started the bidding rather low at $1, then I think I upped it to $5, then 6, then 10, til finally I won it @ $25. Interesting we were the only two bidding on this...*shrug* Mom & Dad donated some of their mutant lemons, which went for a whopping $20. Being that these lemons are infamous, I thought that they'd be worth more. Wrong. Dinner was awesome, mixed with discussion and followed by The Bard's amazing concert. The last 4 songs of his set were Daughters of Angels (which I was busy stuffing my face through), Animals All The Same, (which I was jamming hard near the stage in a bomber jacket/suit), Blood and Passion (again, nomming), and Hymn To Herne (more nom). I may have the order wrong on the last 4, but I know I have my actions right during the songs. My biggest regret about that night aside from the bomber jacket and air guitar on my tail was that I wimped out early for music and didn't get to do dawn patrol.

      • Sunday. That was interesting. Wedding that we slept through ( I didn't really know the couple, and I was hungry), music that I scribbled right before lunch followed by last minute bidding wars on things in the silent IF auction between me, asahoshi and her mother over pens, chocolate covered espresso beans, and candy. I got the pens and chocolate espresso beans. I was borrowing asahoshi's copy of the Heather Alexander song book, then grinned as I finished the lyrics. Lunch ends. We come back to the hotel, I go into the Dealer's room.

        Me: Aja, you going to be at the smoked salmon?"
        Aja: "Yes, of course."
        Me: "Good." and smile knowingly. I have a surprise for you.
        Aja: "I know that look. That's the 'I'm going to have to kill you' look."
        Me: "Yep."

        Shortly thereafter, I smoked him that night with Working On A ConCom. I got points! And his blessing to post it to his fan community. Last time I did this, it was at a NorWesCon in an open filk circle (Lassie Are Ya Tunin. Lyrics for Working On A ConCom will be posted the next time I actually open my song book, which I've not been feeling up to doing since con due to depression/panic.) I'm seeing a pattern here. Savitzkied. Not quite the same ring as Kanefed, but similar effect. Both times, I was singing in front of my idol and I was trembling with stage fright. The fact I had alcohol in my system both times was purely coincidence (IMO).

    • C:tGY [Move II (con't)] -- Move details are pending. Post-con shenanigans include trying to help as best I can of getting the space I'm moving into cleared out, stuff packed into boxes, and will need to have a discussion with the current room mates about when (approximately)I can dismantle the kitchen and pack up my stuff, since most of it's mine. My biggest issues with the current amount of stuff I have is the dresser, amount of clothing, the desk, and a hope chest. I'm hoping I can take the desk apart and reassemble inside my small room, but getting it in there is going to be a trick and a half given the size of the hallway. May have to put it on craigslist or something. *sigh* then spend money for a new desk...wait -- the card table is mine. Yeah, reality bites like that. I'll be trying as much as I can to attempt to move stuff from here to there so I have less to do come next month. Will most likely start bunkering down and doing all of that packing crap after the 20th, as that's when it becomes crunch time for me. I'll also need to score some packing tape I have duct tape. That'll do. There will be a separate posting on move details (possibly even a filker filter) of its own. Now for the question (modified slightly since I'm a free subscriber):If I created a move post tag/filter, would you want to be on it? Options are Yes, No and Clicky. If you give me the latter of the three, I'll be looking for a smart-ass or otherwise humorous answer saying what Clicky means to you. (can also include yes/no answers, if you're so inclined.) Second half of that question is filter or tag: why you'd prefer your answer.

    • Gadget lust [new cell phone] -- the one I have is an old school Sony Ericson W750. It sucks. It has a non-standard (all the phone chargers are now micro USB now, IIRC) charger/USB cable, my USB cable craps out on me when I attempt to charge it, the wall charger is bulky and awkward, and the phone constantly says it has an invalid SIM card. Initially, I wanted the Motorola Backflip, which I learned has been discontinued. The Motorola Bravo appears to be it's successor, camera somewhat more fail-sauce than the Backflip, but if that's the only thing I'm sacrificing...I'm not going to complain. I hate my Ericson so much, and the Moto Bravo has a thingie that lets you locate it! That's a function I will actually use! If I get dumb and leave it in a pocket or plain sight, I can find the damn thing.Want! 'Course, I need to talk to Dad and see about the possibility of getting this done before I move (the issue will be that I'll need to have $70 on me or in my account I can pay with to walk away with it same day and I'm currently broke.) Hopefully, this will happen. I want to shoot my Ericson. I like the idea of having a wi-fi enabled phone, and a functioning QWERTY keyboard. I hate having to press a button 4 times for one letter, more in the case of a 1. Grr.

    • Taxes: Oh yeah. About that. I'll still have to file. It'll be interesting and slightly delayed because I have to wait for my dad to ship up a copy of my tax return from last year (since I asked him nicely to file for me.) Once he does, I'll do it (for the first time)on my own. Bleah. However, based on my sorta income (2 short-lived jobs I had that paid well, relatively) and sponsor membership @ FC 2010, I may be looking @ $349 in ITR (Income Tax Refund). Here's hoping I don't have to chuck it all toward space @ Dix's and I can actually spend it on something useful (driving lessons or sanity checks.) Anyways, now that I've made everyone depressed, I'm going to shut up now. May the rest of 2011 not suck, please?

    Latest News -- Amethyst Rose

    As many of you are aware, mdlbear released Amethyst Rose. This has an estimated release date of (I think) 2011 sometime.

    He has also been in negotiations w/ Tempered Glass about releasing an album, but status of this project is unknown.
    chaoswolf: (Default)
    The official answer is: "Yes." I missed last year because of timing, opportunity, and lack of finances. This year, my finances are still a wreck, but I've just been laid off and need to spend time with my family in order to stay motivated. So, I'm getting a ride from a friend between 1 and 2 in the morning (Wed morning) and will be driving in a car for 18 hours. I'll arrive either late tomorrow night @ Starport, or sometime Thursday. I know the con doesn't start until Friday, but that's not the point.

    Anyone who wants to share drinks with me at the con, get in touch with me via my cell. I won't be working it this year, and I may be attending more panels than at any previous [ profile] baycon because my parents are fan GOH and I've got a few notable authors on my list of panels I should attend. Emmy is working ConSuite, I think...and my parents are GOHs. I'm not going to be a gofer this con. I am to have fun, damnit!
    chaoswolf: (Default)
    Cut because I'm tired. )

    Aside to select individuals:
    • [ profile] kendaer: I'll be talking to you via email re: the shirt you wanted for Legacies. I am learning a pattern in my copious spare time (*snerk*) and currently don't have enough aluminum to make it with. More details on that later.

    • [ profile] runnerwolf: More details on gofur stuff will be forthcoming when you're ready for it. If I'm still living up here in a year, I'd love to help with this con.

    • [ profile] vixyish: I will contact you in the next month or so to possibly discuss particulars of a necklace you wanted from me a few months back. Purple chain, Euro 6-1 pattern etc. Once your life calms down a bit, I mean (that whole 2 cons in 1 week thing.)

    • [ profile] pacfenspotlight: I will PM you or comment on your LJ when I have my [ profile] alexanderfans pics posted, as you wanted shots of Alec.

    That's all for now. I'm tired and need to go to bed.
    chaoswolf: (Default)
    I have to leave, Horatio. )

    All in all, it was a good visit. I have my wedding album so that I can share with [ profile] runnerwolf and company (huge thanks to [ profile] artbeco), have a few sci-fi books (Merlin's Descendants, The Kris Longknife Series, Mists of Avalon/Lady of Avalon, and the Excalibur anthology), have a few cook books (Diabetic ones for me and the roomie, since he's the diabetic), both laptops (for game testing @ my husband's insistance), digitized copies of most of my character sheets (for gaming w/ sibling, Justin or otherwise), a hard-drive full of music and a few movies (thanks to [ profile] screaming_angel. All in all, I had a damn good time.

    Aside to [ profile] mdlbear: If you don't make it into my complex during your visit for [ profile] pocketnaomi's birthday, I'll see you @ ConFlikt, so I'm not worried about it. Don't forget more Barefoot when you do. *grin*
    chaoswolf: (Default)
    Nice way to end 2009. Here's why. )

    I just want to live somewhat normally: a job, family, stable place to live....all at once.
    chaoswolf: (Default)
    Ok, now that I've gotten the Jar-Jar moment out of my system, it is confirmed that I am returning to Starport on Wed Dec 16 and staying until Jan 3, 2010. If you are a bay area yokel who wants to meet up for coffee/a night out/karaoke/whatever, leave a comment/send email/give me a call and we could discuss details. Otherwise I'll be packing stuff up for shipment to my home up in the Great Icy North (Redmond).

    Aside to [ profile] mdlbear: 2 things: mom mentioned a new sushi place that we haven't tried yet, and 2nd: I will give you a paw with dishes and hopefully make that part a lot easier.
    chaoswolf: (Default)
    chaoswolf: (Default)
    Contemplation )
    chaoswolf: (Default)
    [ profile] selkit told me to create stuff after the con. I agreed, mostly because I needed something besides packing that I would enjoy/learn from. I discovered this quaint little PaperPalm when [ profile] mdlbear and I went to the Computer History Museum. I filled a few gaps in Millenium's Dawn about things I didn't know (Deep Blue, Hal, etc) and thought wait a second. I have a geeky PDA now. I must create a pouch for it, since I'll be using it when I go north. Hmmm.... "Dad, can we stop @ REI on the way home?" Dad agreed, we went to REI, picked up a purple bandanna for Mom, a UnderArmor white shirt, nylon webbing, belt of similar, a few buckles and some other gizmos that I figured would be useful in my craft efforts. Dad got a new hat and something else, I forgot. But, I made this pouch today. I'm a leather crafter now. *evil laugh.*

    chaoswolf: (Default)
    It's over. Taken from [ profile] selkit's LJ:
    "At 5:50 PM MST, today, she peacefully went, surrounded by friends and family alike, honored as best as we all could in the present atmosphere."

    When I spoke to him shortly after it happened, he told me "she was pleased to have you as a daughter-in-law." I couldn't have asked for better.

    I've spoken to [ profile] sailorv61 about 3 minutes before, to discuss the Prius and the amount of space. I'm handling well. For now.

    Will be hanging online for the moment.
