Well it snowed madly yesterday morning as well as this morning. I worked yesterday and for those who dont know, I work at an airport. The airport was closed first thing in the morning due to the weather and thus I spent my time making some snow sculptures. I didn't have any tools so what I made was pretty crude, but enjoy the pictures of them: ( Cut for photosCollapse )
I'm not sure what the first one was meant to be when I made it, but looks like a fat cat kinda. The second one was a bunny.
I fell into it, and now you all do too:
☞ Anyone who looks at this entry has to post this meme and their current wallpaper.
☞ Explain in no more than five sentences why you're using that wallpaper!
☞ Don't change your wallpaper before doing this! The point is to see what you had on!
I regularly change my desktop, this just happens to be it right now cause I just love the picture. (art by AyCee)

I havn't posted here in aaaaaaages. Guess I just havn't felt like it. Most of my news these days seems to go on my FA ( http://www.furaffinity.net/user/ikariyalter ).
Although I did want to post a video here that I have finally gotten around to uploading onto youtube. It's footage from Eurofurence 15. Gun Camera footage from my fursuit Shayzo:
Ok, now I'm home and settled I think it's about time I write a little thing about Anthrocon. I'm going to keep it relatively short otherwise it'll go on forever about everything I did.
Day 0 Wednesday - My flights from the UK to Philly and then down to Pittsburgh were ok, quicker than I'm used to but the crew on the planes seemed like they just didn't care. Oh well, got to the Westin hotel at about 7pm that evening and met up with my roommates as well as getting my new fursuit. Spent a few hours in suit before relaxing.
Day 1 Thursday - Spent most of the day being social and getting registered. I'm so glad I always pre-reg, the queue for at-con registration was HUGE. Went to the dance in the evening but it wasn't my kind of music so didn't stay long.
Day 2 Friday - Spent money in the dealers room, picked up my new fursuit head from Lacy and fursuited for a while before hitting the fursuiter meet and greet. Went to a photoshoot for Sapphire's creations, Shayzo being one of them, then went to the spotted hyena panel and enjoyed it. Spent the rest of the day hanging about.
Day 3 Saturday - Went to the dealers room again, did a photoshoot with Lacy with the new Ikari, saw some magic by Dex before taking part in the fursuit parade as Shayzo. Saw the Poink and Ezra show in the afternoon which was a lot of fun as I'm a big fan of the Funday Pawpet Show, then watched the Masquerade which had some excellent performances as usual (one of which I did some audio recording for). Finally I enjoyed 2's rant which was his usual top notch performance. Oh yeah, and I caught a watch of the fireworks too, good show.
Day 4 Sunday - Spent most of the day hanging about and fursuiting except for attending the Concession panel (of which I'm a big fan) and the Fursuit Dance Competition finals (which was amaaaaazing).
And that was pretty much it. I had a lot of fun, hung out with some great people, spent time with my mate (love you), got new fursuits and loved every second of it. Next stop, Eurofurence, then RBW, then back to FC.

Holy crap, Anthrocon is only like 4 days away and I'm getting so jittery. I'll be picking up a new head for my current fursuit as well as a whole new partial fursuit.
If anyone who's going wants to say hi then I'll be in fursuit like 80% of the con so look for either the six-tailed white kitsune in purple rave pants, or the steampunk looking hyena carrying a rifle and a sidearm. I may look mean sometimes but I've always got time for a hug.
I'll be sharing a room with my mate Arianna, her friend Darren and my close friend Heist and I've been told that two of those three will probably be following me around like my own personal group of fanboys.
I wont be putting on a stage performance at the masquerade this con, breaking my promise to myself to get on stage at every con I go to, but I couldn't get enough people together to put on the performance I wanted to. However I did lend my voice to another act, so I'll be up there in spirit. Although it someone decides they need and extra, I'll be volunteering my services because I do very much enjoy performing in suit.
Got a letter through at work a couple of days ago from our company management about our annual pay rise (I work as an airport baggage handler for those who don't know). Now last year the company wanted to give us a stupidly low pay raise until we threatened to strike and then our union negotiated a two year pay deal, with this year's pay raise being at maximum 5% and at minimum 2.75% depending on inflation. The company now don't want to to give us this 2.75% raise, saying in this letter that due to the current state of the economy it is "unreasonable to expect the company to pay 2.75% as a pay raise."
How on earth is is unreasonable for us to expect the company to follow through on a promise they made?
Today we found out the truth why the company don't want to give us a raise this year. After talking with our union representatives we discovered that after the negotiations last year the company made a budget of our pay raises and what they intended to offer the airlines as a handling fee so that they could project their earnings. Well it turns out that what they then went and did was use what was budgeted to be our pay raise to offer the airlines an even lower handling fee to increase business. So now essentially they don't want to give us a pay raise because it will eat into the company's projected profits.
Answer down below if ya feel like it:
1) Who are you?
2) Are we friends?
3) When and how did we meet?
4) Would you kiss me?
5) Give me a nickname and explain why.
6) Describe me in 1 word.
7) What was your first impression of me?
8) Do you still think the same?
9) What reminds you of me?
10) If you could give me anything, what would it be?
11) How well do you know me?
12) Are you gonna put this in your journal and see what I say about you?
13) Would you meet up with me?
Well I'm back home again now and depressed for having to leave my mate alone until Anthrocon. At least we get to talk every day over MSN and Second Life.
Ok so I've been out of the loop for like 2 weeks now and I'm sure I've missed something, so come on tell, what's been going on in the furry world that I might have missed?

I write this journal while sat on the floor in Philladelphia airport USA. I'm just waiting for my connecting flight taking me up to Reagan Internation in DC where I'll be met by my new mate Arriana and taken up to Silver Spring, Maryland. I'll be staying with her for the next 10 days (cause that's all I can get off work right now) and then heading home.
Anyone in the area that I know? If so gimme a shout and I might be able to swing a meeting
I might post a few times while I'm here, but if not then I'll post when I get home.
Yep, today I turn 25. I wake up to an empty house, no-one's coming round today, I have a fish pond to drain and repair, I'm thousands of miles away from the person I care about.
*slaps myself* No emo!
Hey, I've got great friends (I don't get to see them often but enough to make me happy), I have someone who loves me, I'm going to a furmeet tomorrow. I have no reason to be down.
Oh yeah, and I'm going to see Watchmen this afternoon
