Costuming Bleg

Usually when I ask my f-list for help, I'm looking for information, but in this case I'm looking for skills (or knowledge) and time. For reasons I won't go into, I need to get my hands on a red sash my size by about 5 PM this afternoon. If you can point me to someplace that can sell/rent me one, somebody that can loan me one, or somebody that would be willing to make me one (I have some scrap fabric suitable to the job, I think), any of those would work. It doesn't have to be fancy, fringy, or glitzy, but it does need to be red and it does need to fit me. If you're wondering what kind of sash I'm talking about, think about the kind of sash you usually saw Worf wandering around in, only without all the metallic stuff and decorations.

I'd have given people more notice, but this was a spur-of-the-moment thing that occurred to [name deleted to protect the guilty] and myself yesterday.

E-mail me or respond in the comments, please.

Brain failure

Well, things are going about as well as they usually do on Saturday mornings. Instead of going right to bed when I got home last night, I stayed up until all hours reading Pandora's Legions, which is Eric Flint's deft fusion of Christopher Anvil's Pandora's Planet with the tales of John Towers' Special Effects Team and a story about an Earth psychiatrist's experience with Centran methods, which are, shall we say, rather hands-on. This meant I was too sleepy to realize that I'd set my alarm for 8:30 PM, and as a result I woke at 10:30 instead.

So I need to get my ass in gear, get cleaned up & dressed, get my drugs and some breakfast, and head over (belatedly) to huladavid's moving party. Late again as usual.

You know, I'm just not a very bright person. Anyone of even moderate brightness would have known better than to get involved in a moving party two days after coming off bedrest, but that's exactly what I did, and now I'm wiped out. I need to get some Tylenol and I need to get horizontal, and going out to the Rakehell party doesn't get either of those done, unfortunately. Doing laundry has been put off until tomorrow, of course.

UPDATE 0240 10/22/06: So of course, having gone to bed so early, I'm up at 2:30 AM and can't get back to sleep. Eh. A turkey sandwich, a cup of yogurt, and another chapter of Grant Moves South and I should be back in dreamland.
