Couch Kitten

First pics of Vader

Vader seems to have a fascination with water. I caught him striking a pose on the tub here:

His fascination includes the toilet. If the lid is up, he does this:

And of course he's a snuggle slut, just the way I like my kitties. Here he is napping (with one eye open) with tresdon:

More pictures to come, I already have a photo album on LJ made just for him!

Vamire Ball

We have our tickets to the Vampire Ball: I'm so excited! We are going up to Portland Friday night, I guess there is some kind of pre-ball mixer that night in Portland.

Who else is going?

Do you want to carpool with us or share our train ride (we'll take the train of there's no one that wants to share the driving)?

Also, does anyone know if there are cheap motels near the event? I'm taking 3 days off from teaching to attend. And if I'm going to take 3 days without income, I would prefer not to spend $80 per night for one of the fancy hotels listed on the ball's website. Plus I'd rather have that money for Norwescon just 2 weeks later. So I'd like to make this trip as inexpensive as possible so I can save for Norwescon. Where can we stay in Portland near the Melody ballroom for cheap?
