I imagine I'd be getting to the Marriot around now if I were going this year. Tonight, around the time that I should be getting back from registration and collapsing with the boyfriend in front of whatever movie is on in the room, I will instead be saying goodnight to the boyfriend at our gaming night and driving home to go to sleep early, in preperation for getting up far too early in order to drive two and a half hours to the university where I am going to grad. school.

Two years 'til Dragon*Con.

Is it time to start the pity party yet?

The "Son of...." ads are starting to depress me.

Another con season fires up...
AC is just days away. MFM/Dragon*Con/PonyCon II/KelloggsCon are just around the bend. And MFF will follow shortly thereafter.

Oh, yeah. Not going to any of them. *Sighs*

Have teh best

Nope, not there, nuh-uh.
I just wanted to point out that I'm not at FC either.

Have the best

Technically I can stay in this group, because I won't be at Dracon*Con, right? Right?

I'll be at MFM instead. Somehow, I feel like a traitor.

Have the best

More leavings out...
I believe the most accurate comment about this is:

Le sigh...

Have the best time without me ever!

I don't have the Con Crud! I don't have the Con Crud!


*Looks around* Yes?

That's only a viable brag when you aren't already sick with something else.

Oh. *Waves at the audience* Never mind!

Have the best

To my furry friends...
I am most definately, without a doubt, not at Midwest Fur Fest. Poo.

Have the best Kiyoshi-free weekend ever.

Well that's it for another year....
So DragonCon is over for another year, and by all accounts everyone had a wonderful time.... accept us.

So now what's on the agenda that we're missing?

Webcast is F.A.B.

  • It will start ~7PM EST (GMT -5).

  • It may be slow - the hotel firewall is horking up the high speed connection :-/ Wolf Lynx is grabbing Netstumbler now and will try to snark some high speed bandwidth from somewhere to do the broadcast over instead. If that doesn't work, he's going to be forced to use dial up.

It just keeps getting better and better....
Well aside from the 3 musketeers going.... there's at least one writer on my friend's list I'd seriously enjoy meeting... If only for a mutual love of World Dominiation Schemes by our respective cats. That and she's a hoot.

AND... of course my computer decides to get all fritzy and stuff on me while the guys voted "most likely to help a damsel in techno distress" are on their way to DragonCon... together.

I really REALLY hope I can keep this thing running long enough to jack into the live party feed. I'm gonna scream and cry and be a lionness with a thorn in her paw otherwise.

Well apparently the Gods do indeed have a sense of humour...

Indeed I did win money in the lottery today....

I'm not bitter...
OK, maybe a little.

The thing is, when I visited White Pony in July, he shared with me some of the "special touches" he was making to the room party. I really, really wanted to go, just for that reason. (I was even thinking of finding a cheap motel/notel outside of Atlanta, sneaking in for the room party, and leaving the next morning).

Between finances, time, and the fact that my lovely wife was going to change the locks on the door, the decision was made for me that I was going to attend this "shindig" in a long-distance format. :(

I'm hoping that they do manage to post some sort of live feed for those of us who can't make it. Failing that...pictures. Lots and lots of pictures!

Scheduling fun
To add insult to injury, the intended time for the webcast of the Saturday party is early Sunday afternoon (12 noon - 1PM) Sydney time.

This presents a slight problem for the Australians who can't attend and wanted to watch - or this one at least - that is the middle of our Fathers Day!

*growl boo hiss*

Now give me a paper cut and pour lemon juice on it.

You know...
Silly me... I'm STILL reading airline web sites, and checking travelocity... and it would ONLY take $2000 CAN and I'd BE there in a heart beat....

Come on.... Mama needs to go to a PARTY!

Don'cha just HATE that it seems like everyone you know is going off to Dragon'Con, going to the most FABULOUS parties... meeting all the COOLEST people, and you're stuck at home with your boring little life and eating your poor little green heart out?

Welcome to not_at_dragncon where we can all kvetch, moan, bitch, complain together... and poke fun at the rest of em behind their backs!

Hey we can have some fun too.... even if it is vicarious
