Another meme

This one via a_d_medievalist:

The problem with LJ: we all think we are so close, but really, we know nothing about each other. So ask me something you want to know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. Ask away. Then post this in your LJ and find out what people don't know about you.

In other news, today I have to:
make the Christmas cake
dye my hair
clean bathrooms
do some revisions on GK
write a review
answer some of my email
Go to Waitrose

I wonder how many I'll manage? At least I'm not shattered this morning, unlike the first half of this week.


Well, I've made a fair dent in the list.

Cakes -- done
Cleaning -- done
Review -- done
Laundry -- done
Hair dyeing -- done
Some of the email answering -- done

Nil on revisions and Waitrose, but it's better than nothing.

The inevitable question

So: World Fantasy con.
What do I *wear*?
(I'm not staying in the con hotel, and the marquis can't come, so complicated things and things that are heavy to carry around are out. No corsets and certainly no rubber dress.) I have heard rumours of disapproval of weird clothes. Sound I be super-good (and very not me) and cross-dress wear conventional clothes (I think I may have some works things left over)? Do I need to go and buy a knee-length tweed skirt and a blouse with a bow? (The answer to that is no. I wouldn't wear them.)
And -- and this is important -- I have no idea what kind of weather to expect. I mean, here in Cambridge it's currently damp and cold, and I've moved into long sleeves, jumpers and thick tights. But do I need t-shirts? Bare legs? Thin tights? (No, not stockings. No. They itch.) Do I simply shadow desperance and live in black jeans and tops? (I lack an appropriate hat, alas.) Do I wear a sack and pretend to be someone else?
Clothes are not easy, let me tell you.

(Skirt of the day: black flouncey).
