Animated cats

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.
