CONvergence summary

To read various people's CONvergence highlights go HERE. chebutykin did a "tell me your highlights of con" post.
To see pictures of CONvergence go HERE for over 2000 of vorrant's pictures. I'm sure I'm in there somewhere, but I haven't looked.

Random Con moments:

*Room was ready when we got there so we could check in immediately

*North tower!

*My Beta Clone #131 t-shirt showed up in the mail on Friday so I could wear it! Picture already sent to JC Hutchins.

*Opening ceremony sketch was good. Apparently we missed about half the opening stuff though because we booked out of there when the Mark Time awards started. Every year I sit through them and every year they are too long and I get bored, so I didn't this year.

*Got to spend lots of quality time with the LJ-less Darek and Nissa.

*Played some Cineplexity Friday nite.

*Saw the other Sharon (BirdChick) on Saturday when she was there for the Raptor Center presentation.

*Moose did *not* get eaten by a red-tailed hawk:

*Ended up eating at Olive Garden twice this weekend. Service was less than stellar both times.

*Met kajicarter in real life for the first time. Kaji, you get to change colors now! My flist has one color for people I've met and one for people I haven't.

*I looked smokin' hot on Saturday night in my black velvet outfit and with makeup on.

*chebutykin was smarter than me and brought her Xmas present for me & hellbob to the convention. We didn't think to do that.

*The comic professionals panel was pretty cool!

*I got to see Cyd & lady_gunsen in the bar. I really need to see them more often.

*Moose got to meet a real live rocket scientist (Bridget Landry) and a Hugo & Nebula award winning author (Lois McMaster Bujold.)

(can you tell I'm having too much fun using Skitch to annotate photos?)

*Sunday's closing sketch was brilliant! Prince and the Electric Mayhem! The year 3007 film that romeoa put together was also fabulous!

*And, as has become tradition for me, the con ended Sunday night with a game of Salad Bowl.

I know I forgot plenty of things. But hey, my excuse for anything forgotten is "What happens at Con stays at Con!"

    OK. I've missed you LJ peeps. I see some of you IRL still, and some of you over on Facebook, but I need to make more of an effort to read over here…

    First the good news, then the bitching about mom. Dad was discharged yesterday evening. He had low potassium, and the stress test showed that there…

    Dad's spending the night at the hospital tonight. :-( He had some chest pain this morning, and his heartbeat was irregular so he went to the ER. The…
