Back from MFF [Nov. 22nd, 2004|08:31 pm]
[Current Mood |draineddrained]

Got back from Midwest FurFest very late Sunday evening. Had a wonderful time out there! It's always such a fun crowd at that con...

I won't write a detailed entry (right now) and I didn't take any photos (forgot the camera). But I did get a chance to meet a bunch of my friends from all over the country. It feels like I saw about half the people on my LJ friends list so I won't try to name everyone. (Also met some new furs, such as Aurora and Icarus, which was cool.)

Special thanks to snapcat for letting me be on the fursuiting panels; I always enjoy doing that. Thanks to 3catsjackson for handling the travel arrangements (our group tends to rotate that role) and making sure at least one of us had a fursuit in attendance.

Thanks also to toraneko and purplecat for not being at MFF and, thereby, being able to care for our cat Sapphire. I'm sure she loved the attention! Thanks for leaving the notes; I hope everything you needed here was easily found (amidst the house mess). Thank you.

The only downside is that I think I might've contracted con crud. We'll see by tomorrow.

'letting' you? heck, I'll 'let' you do 10 panels next year... just let me know which you may have interest in hosting. I'll have suggestions together by june/july next year. Truly a great con... those mega-panels are always so neet and full of information.. even though they 'do' turn into materials panels.. but what are you supposed to make fursuits out of? non materials? ;)

Wheeee! The panels are fun, though I don't want to sign up for tooo many. ;) But I'm sure I can do a couple next year.

BTW, loved the freaky poodle bit. Rock.

I suspect con-crud is similar to ohmygodit'salmostfinals crud... I recommend 5,000-10,000 mg of vitamin C daily, plus some supplementation with echinacea and zinc... :)

You ever get those business cards done? I saw the sketches that Jonas did and I though they where so cool.

Yes, he did. (He got them to me with a day to spare, even! He works well under pressure, I guess.) The business cards look great.

I found you through a mention on [Bad username: phar's] journal, so hi! ^.^ It's the Aurora you met ^.^ Was really fun having dinner with you.

And Icarus is here too, as icaruspony. I added you, btw.

Sucks you got concrud, I avoided it by taking tons of Vitamin C and Echinacia (sp?)... I'm so glad I took the time to do so. ;) There's always next time!

Boy was I glad I didn't work there. Cool atmosphere perks would sorta be cancelled out by having to shout desert names.
