DragonCon!

ZOMG. I'm trying to think of a balanced and reasonable way to describe the past several days. I'd say things like "best con ever" and "the most amazing five days a human being can ever hope to imagine in this life or the next," but I don't know if they really convey quite how I feel.

Unfortunately, I'm still totally exhausted (despite about twelve hours' worth of sleep), and I'm nowhere near cogent enough to be able to write about Dragon*Con. So instead I'll do something I generally don't do, and just re-post messages from my Twitter account.

franklinveaux: has to be at the airport in six hours, and isn't happy 'bout it.

...At the airport. Sleepy. Woman reading Following God's Footsteps & taking notes. Please don't let her sit next to me...

That is the happiest set of twitter posts I have ever read. Why have I not started following you on twitter yet? *goes to do so*

Also, ZOMG everybody awesome was at Dragoncon this weekend. I want to go too! ;_;

I loved reading everyone's DC Twitter posts! Filthy, filthy awesome.

(In lieu of being anywhere near DC, I attempted to get #allglorytothehypnotoad trending. This failed, but did result in one friend offering to write it in wet concrete.)

See you at Frolicon
Remind me closer to Frolicon time to give you a Golden Ticket (or more than one if you're not alone) to the Sooper-Sekrit after-party in the Frolicon dungeon, which will probably be ~2:30am late Friday night.

Re: See you at Frolicon
Excellent! The Golden Ticket party will be Friday night starting after the dungeon (officially) closes, which will probably be around 2:30am or so. The usual dungeon rules are null and void; the only 'rules' are things like don't get the con in trouble, don't deliberately try to break the equipment, don't make whoever invited you regret it, common-sense stuff like that.

As for getting you the golden tickets for the party-- I figure I'm either going to be in my usual Hunter S Thompson outfit most of the con, or wearing a robe & birks when I'm not; I'll have 'Finrod' on my con badge, but if you have trouble finding me, ask anyone with Sadistic Engineering where you can find Brad, and they should point you in the right direction.

Re: See you at Frolicon
I haven't been around the con as much today as I'd like, which is probably why I haven't run into you yet; I'm staying in room #1111, or if we don't manage to meet up before the party starts (in ~3 hours), come by the dungeon between 2am and 2:30 and ask for me and I'll get you the tix just before the party begins.
