Penguicon

This cartoon by A. Payne (who is awesome) pretty much sums up my time so far:

(That isn't a particular girl, by the way. Or if it is, Payne didn't know her and I'm not tellin'.)

Having a great deal of fun. Making a lot of friends with the staff folk, and while they all deny it, this may be the best-organized smallish con I've yet seen. Great guests, diverse schedule, best con suite ever (free meals and beer for all con attendees!), a clear badge-ribbon signal system for those of us who like to flirt... It's a win. I'm definitely going to get Anna to come with me next year.

And you should come, too. Yes, you. I'll be looking for you!

Thanks! I enjoyed meeting you too, and our (far too brief) conversation. Sorry I didn't make it up for more Guitar Hero the second night. The further humiliation would have at least been amusing.

Oh, no worries! Just let me know if you're going to be around in the future - we'll have to hang out again.

It's a deal! Do you do any other cons? I'm hitting Balticon and Dragon*Con. All else is uncertainty in a dark, dangerous universe. (Okay, maybe that's overstating it.) But I definitely want to do Penguicon again next year. The whole thing had a vibe that made me happy.

Also, nice balloon. >8->

Just MI cons, I'm afraid, though there are a few others I want to go to - mostly Harry Potter related, as I'm a huge geek that way. =D But we did ConFusion and Penguicon both last year and probably will next year; we only didn't this year because there was a whole layoff and lack of means situation going on. There was one in . . . Chicago, I think, that I really wanted to go to cos the Firefly/Serenity people usually show up at it, though, so who knows? It's hard with the kids being the ages they are.

And, because I'm too ADD (look, shiny!) to reply to all your points in one reply, I love the chibi. A friend of mine in the HP fandom drew it for me. =D
