Default NotSoInnocent rides again

With my old email gone, I set up a new registration.

5 or so years after vanishing, I've got a ton of stories to tell. All thanks to my new "job".

I volunteer for multiple conventions, usually as a member of Security. My major focus is on Line Control, but I also work with Accessibility departments... because I'm now in a wheelchair. With a few dips into the A/V world, and some time in Panel Management, you could say that I've been all over the convention sphere.

You may be asking "Why is she back -now-?"

The answer is that I was reminded of the loss of one of our own.

5 years ago, today, we lost Plaidman.

He was a sweet gent who had the misfortune of having a disability which led to his ostracism from the outside, "normal", world.

We were fairly close, and my kids all met him at a zoo meetup in our area.

I was so proud of my heathen children, that day... They saw below his surface, and instantly loved him. And it was heartbreaking to see his surprise at that.

So I'm back. In his memory. And I'll be posting Stories from the Con Floor soon.

Thanks, hun.

Currently typing up Episode 1 of Stories from the Con Floor.

It involves VIPs, a new convention, mismanagement, theft, intrigue, and a reference to Harry Potter.

It's a doozy!

I know, right?

Remember my heathen children?

Buddah is 16, now called Skitz, and is a fantastic talent in digital art, music, vocals, and is a rising star in competitive ice skating!

Bug is 13, now called Pixel, and has dived into physical art, choir, and video gaming!

Nugget is 10, still my little Butt Nugget, and has been very happily learning about how to take care of farm animals.

Bubbie is almost 9, still my little snuggle bub, and (despite being diagnosed with dyslexia) loves to read.

Hubby is out of the Army, graduated from college, and is an awesome dude... still.

I'm working at conventions, with several hundred folks who absolutely adore the way I can yell at a line of people (at the top of my lungs) and make them happy that I'm basically telling them to GTFO. It's fantastic!

I'm even allowed to "jokingly" threaten to run over people with 400 lbs of electric wheelchair.

I love my job!

In case anyone's confused, I merged her new account with her old one.
