Crispy 'song

Back from Pi-Con, had a great time, pants are bankrupt.

1. Treating this as a relaxacon was an excellent idea. Yes, I had seven panels. That's a relaxacon for me. I said fuckit to my usual painstakingly-planned wardrobe and jewelry and just grabbed jeans, t-shirts, and underpants and hit the road. I moderated a panel post-Jack-Daniels (and was complimented on it). I actually got to hit Barfleet. I am crispy-fried but it was good.

2. I need to see if I have permission to share the funniest goddamn thing that happened at the con. Which was Friday night at the bar.

3. I have a contract signed by the conchair and the Guest of Awesome that says I get a spanking from the head of security (who I have a pre-existing spanking relationship with) for each and every infraction of the con rules. We were keeping a tally on my arm with sharpie.

4. I have no idea where that bruise came from. No, not from spanking. Yes, I need to stop poking it and saying "That hurts!"

5. I have rarely been that exhausted at a con, so hopefully I was making sense.

Completely unrelated to Pi-Con, this is the last day you can vote for me in the ServiceHero contest, and also I am baking gluten-free cornbread for the treatsfortits bake sale; you can bid on it here. Check out the other items too!

I hope we're not moving again next year at this time... I *really* want to go.

Very glad to hear you had a good time. Sometimes a relaxacon is just the ticket.

Heya! I'm glad to hear you had an awesome Con! As for things I think you might need to see:

The Prester John book cover mess going on on the following LJ's: Cat, Trains of Heaven, Sooj, and a few others. Quick link to Sooj's stuff: http://s00j.livejournal.com/220133.html

I put the factual smackdown on some of this Ground Zero "Mosque" bullshit: http://hps-sterling.livejournal.com/601804.html

That is all I know of that would impact you. I have some local to TN crap that I am smiting but it will be ok.

Barfleet is the BEST. We attended one of their parties at PAX and it ended with me meeting River Alph at the front door of someone else's hotel, him spinning through the revolving door going WHEEEEE and calling over his shoulder "I got light sabred by a JEDI!!" and then turning my head to see said Jedi, with his light sabre, looking like he was about to cry, saying "I'm SO SORRY".

Good people, super fun, and there were s3xy people in their underwear, plus it was a good cause.

It was like Huf Hefner threw a party for geeks.

I wasn't at Pi-Con because I was at farthingparty, which was pretty relaxacon-ish for me despite being on three panels this time instead of my usual two. :-)

Glad you had such a great time there!
