And it's temporary, again. At the American Girl Place in LA, again. Ah well. It'll do in the interim while I poke about. Time to start saving up for that piece of camera equipment I've been wanting! And TF comics, and the Japanese magazines that covers TF (I dislike one of the stores where I have to buy them due to them inflating the price, but they usually get their stuff reasonably on time in the US), and the occasional tchotchke...

Working at AGP now isn't as noisy as it was back during the holidays last year, but that may change, since I just got started again. Who knows, the summer can be almost as crazy as during winter. New stuff, the place is going through some renovations (which surprised me), and a couple things changed locations due to said renovations. Being back in merchandise handling, like riding a bike with new obstacles. (I swear, I'll have to buy those kneepads or foot pads one of these days.) Sore muscles are sore again.

What else have I've been doing? Last weekend, volunteering at IDW's booth during San Diego Comic-Con 2010. EXHAUSTING. Not just from standing for 6 hours each day, but from the commuting. AGAIN. While it could've been five days of driving instead of four from last year, as I was working on Preview Night as well, I was lucky enough to spend a night at a motel with some pals (VERY grateful to them, even if I got the floor). My eyeballs and nerves were all but screaming murder after the con. In fact, I was already getting hit by con fatigue on the second day (or third, if you include Preview Night). Hopefully next year, I'll be able to split a motel room with extra people that's also heading down there. I can cover 5-days of gas (and a bit of food on the side), but no way can I cover 5-days of most motel rates by myself. Arggh... and then there's BOTCON in Pasadena as well. SERIOUS con fatigue...

Yay for job!

Ug, yeah, the commuting would wear me out, too. And those motel rates are crazy - hope you have good luck finding some roomies.
