Sorry for any confusion...

...but there is no LiveJournal party tomorrow.  I never really announced one, though I did say I was hoping to have one today (Saturday).  I'll be attending two anime convention staff meetings on Saturday, one for Fanime and one for JTAF.  I'll try and be in the city afterwards if anyone wants to get together and hang out, but it'll be like 6:00pm before I can get there.  If you want to get together with me at the Metreon or something, feel free to leave a comment here... but you should also give me a call so that I know to keep an eye out for ya.  You can call any time tonight or tomorrow, and I do mean any time.  Please leave a voice mail if I don't answer the phone or something.  :)

I'm tentatively planning the LiveJournal party for January 31st, which is the last Saturday of this month.  I'd like to bring the party to my place afterwards, but I'm not sure that I can pull that one off yet.  I'll see if I can get that Sunday off, but don't expect that just yet.  I'll update all of you as soon as I have some news.  Oh, and I owe many of you an apology... my cellular phone was out of commission for quite some time.  I was able to switch my service to an older phone, but that didn't happen for a while... and I missed a lot of your calls.  I also lost a ton of text messages, and got small parts of some... but I couldn't even tell who most of them were from, which really pissed me off.  Verizon Wireless needs to be smacked, and their employees need even half of the training I already have... despite that I don't work for them.

I've got a lot of your phone numbers transferred over to my new cellular phone (I got another Motorola T720c as a replacement, finally), so you can expect calls from me over the next week or so... assuming I find the time.  I hope that all of you are well, and I apologize again for my lack of contact with you.  I'll do my best to make it up to you... and I want to thank those of you who expressed your concern (such as corsican), instead of assuming I hated you and giving up on me.  I thought some of my friends were more patient than that, but I guess I was wrong.  Still, I accept responsibility for the business of my life (for example, I worked 14 hours yesterday and 11 and a half today) and I realize that it's my fault for not keeping in touch with those of you who have said your goodbyes.  I do hope that you'll forgive me when I reach you, though.

- Chris (cK1)

There you are!
I tried to send you some holiday greetings, but the email bounced.... were you having server problems? I couldn't even reach the domain proper in a browser.... then work and life interfered as usual and I didn't follow up until I saw yer post just now. ^^;;

Anyway, belated greetings! ^^

Meh, I doubt you're immature in the way that you would stop talking to someone for no reason. ^^

Oddly enough, I think I forgot the original January announcement, but hopefully, all the hectic holiday stuff is behind us all. January 31st is fine, seeing as that falls on a Yet Another Weekend I Don't Have To Run The Local Anime Club. ^_^;

I can't say where I'd be over the next 24 hours between home and the Bay, but if I'm in the area, maybe I'll swing by the Metreon, but I'm not promising anything. I need sleep, and I promised myself I'd start one costume, or remake a current one this weekend. Planned in the works is a Macross UN Spacy uniforn (a.k.a. Robotech) - Hikaru Ichijo and possibly Hayao Kakizaki variants (a.k.a. Rick Hunter and Ben Dixon) I think I was more or less influenced by the AX skit for 2003, but then again, Old School Rules - Now and Forever. ^_^;

In closing, I recall asking you for advice on whether or not I should switch from AT&T Wireless to Cingular, and you told me the best advice was to NOT switch to Cingular. Last I read in USA Today a couple days back, one was planning to buy out the other, most likely AT&T Wireless going after Cingular, but that's all speculation at this point. For the record, one of my uncles works for Cingular back East, and I, of course, have the same several-year old beat up Ericsson LX280 that I haven't felt like replacing yet, mainly because it still works, and works with the wireless network.

Man, I need sleep... Just got through a 6-hour bender on FFXI.

KITTIES!
*looks at your userpic* WHEE! KITTIES! Whose are they? I didn't think you had any cats.

No wonder I couldn't reach you over break! I was going to call and tell you I was back at school, but I got nothing.
Trust me, though--you don't even know one-eighth of the shit that's going on at Verizon. It's not always nice being on the inside loop.

Are those your kitties? ^__^ they're adorable!

...sorry, tangent.

Anyhow, It's good to see you back again! You do seem to disappear quite a bit, don't you? ^_^ I'm just teasing, though. I'm glad you've got everything straightened out.

How's the job-thing going? I remember you saying something about possibly changing jobs?

Re: Sorry for any confusion...

You have no need to apologize, Chris. :) It's perfectly okay. Heck, even though you're the head honcho of these gatherings, we have to take into consideration that you have a life, which involves working, being with family, or staffing at two conventions for the matter; it's not easy. Having said that, sometimes it's hard to keep up with your LJ posts.</font>

If it makes you feel any better, I'm having the same problem keeping up in my LJ, and it seems as though as I only have work on the brain. *laughs* In some ways, it can't be helped, especially when you work with a boss who curses like a sailor, as well as yelling and shouting every single day when things go wrong. For the icing on the cake, once I get home, I feel completely drained. :p Oh, well. What you can do, right? *laughs*</font>

As for your new cellphone, if you need my number again, please e-mail me, okay? :)</font>
